  1. 1. Chronic Hypertension and Pregnancy Epidemiological Aspects on Maternal and Perinatal Complications

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Karin Zetterström; Uppsala universitet.; [2007]
    Keywords : Obstetrics and gynaecology; chronic hypertension; preeclampsia; gestational diabetes; abruptio placenta; SGA; perinatal death; stillbirth; neonatal death; gender; generation; Obstetrik och kvinnosjukdomar;

    Abstract : These studies were undertaken to investigate risks of maternal and perinatal complications in pregnant women with chronic hypertensive disease, and to investigate future risk of preeclampsia in women born small for gestational age (SGA). Population based cohort studies using the Swedish Medical Birth Register from different years were performed. READ MORE

  2. 2. Effects of Hemoglobin Normalization with Epoetin in Chronic Kidney Disease

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Hans Furuland; Uppsala universitet.; [2005]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Internal medicine; Anemia; blood viscosity; cardiac output; chronic kidney disease; renal dialysis; dialysis adequacy; erythopoietin; heart rate variability; hemoglobin; hemorheology; hypertension; kidney transplantation; Kt V; left ventricular hypertrophy; Quality of Life; Invärtesmedicin; MEDICINE Dermatology and venerology; clinical genetics; internal medicine Internal medicine; MEDICIN Dermatologi och venerologi; klinisk genetik; invärtesmedicin Invärtesmedicin;

    Abstract : Anemia is common in patients with chronic kidney disease (CDK), contributes to reduced Quality of Life (QoL) and is associated with cardiovascular disease, morbidity and mortality. Epoetin raises hemoglobin (Hb) and increases QoL and physical exercise capacity. READ MORE

  3. 3. Diagnostic and prognostic value of proteinuria in chronic renal diseases

    University dissertation from Omran Bakoush, Griffelvägen 46, 245 64, Hjärup

    Author : Omran Bakoush; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2004]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Urology; Hypertension.; Glomerulonephritis; IgM; Albuminuria; Diabetic Nephropathy; nephrology; Urologi; nefrologi;

    Abstract : To the extent that increased urinary protein excretion is an indicator of alterations of the glomerular capillary wall (GCW) and appearance of tubulointerstitial damage, proteinuria can be a good marker of the overall severity of the glomerular and tubulointerstitial damage, and therefore, the prognosis of glomerular diseases. Studies I, II, and III show that it is the type of proteinuria, rather than the degree of albuminuria, that predicts the progression in renal, proteinuric diseases. READ MORE

  4. 4. Local regulation of the endogenous fibrinolytic system in man

    University dissertation from Göteborg

    Author : Thordis Hrafnkelsdottir; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2001]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; tissue-type plasminogen activator; plasminogen activator inhibitor type-1; endothelium; extracellular nucleotides; hypertension; chronic renal failure;

    Abstract : The physiologically most important activator of intravascular fibrinolysis is tissue-type plasminogen activator (tPA). The endothelium synthesises and stores tPA and regulated release of the enzyme is an important mechanism for removal of fibrin from blood vessels. Plasminogen activator inhibitor type-1 (PAI-1) is the main inhibitor of tPA. READ MORE

  5. 5. Long-term follow-up of adult women with urinary tract infection in childhood

    University dissertation from Göteborg : University of Gothenburg

    Author : Carin Gebäck; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2016]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; ambulatory blood pressure; blood pressure; chronic kidney disease; DMSA scan; glomerular filtration rate; hypertension; pregnancy; renal damage; renal function; urinary tract infection; vesicoureteral reflux;

    Abstract : Acute pyelonephritis is common in young children and can lead to permanent renal damage. Renal damage increases the risk of complications such as hypertension and decreased renal function later in life. For women with renal damage there is also an increased risk of pregnancy complications. READ MORE
