  1. 1. Manifestations and Survival in Coronary Heart Disease

    Author : Kerstin Dudas; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2009]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; coronary heart disease; acute coronary syndrome; coronary-bypass grafting; mortality; case fatality; survival; manifestation; predictors; risk factors; trends; cholesterol;

    Abstract : Aim: To investigate how risk factors predict manifestations in coronary heart disease (CHD), and trends in short-term and long-term survival including trends in out-of-hospital mortality. Populations and methods: In the first study 7388 men aged 47 to 55 and free of previous acute myocardial infarction (AMI) or stroke were investigated during 28 years’ follow-up. READ MORE

  2. 2. Prevalence and Prognostic Impact of Periodontal Disease and Conventional Risk Factors in Patients with Stable Coronary Heart Disease

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Ola Vedin; Uppsala universitet.; [2015]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Coronary heart disease; Secondary prevention; Prevention; Periodontal Disease; Tooth loss; Risk prediction; Risk factors; Myocardial infarction; Cardiology; Kardiologi;

    Abstract : The purpose of this thesis was to assess the prevalence and management of established cardiovascular (CV) risk factors and the prevalence and influence of self-reported markers (number of teeth and frequency of gum bleeding) of periodontal disease (PD), a less explored CV risk factor, in patients with stable chronic coronary heart disease (CHD).We studied patients from the global STabilization of Atherosclerotic plaque By Initiation of darapLadIb TherapY (STABILITY) trial (n=15,828), in which patients with stable chronic CHD were randomized to either darapladib or placebo.

  3. 3. Coronary Heart Disease and Erectile Dysfunction

    University dissertation from Institutionen för kliniska vetenskaper, Lunds universitet

    Author : Rasmus Borgquist; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2007]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; risk factors; Cardiovascular system; Kardiovaskulära systemet; Erectile dysfunction; coronary heart disease;

    Abstract : Coronary heart disease (CHD) is a common condition associated with a high mortality. There is now growing evidence that erectile dysfunction (ED) in men may be a suitable marker of sub-clinical cardiovascular disease, identifying patients at high risk for future CHD. READ MORE

  4. 4. Impact of Risk Factors and Treatment in Coronary Heart Disease

    University dissertation from Institutionen för kliniska vetenskaper, Lunds universitet

    Author : Lena Björck; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2008]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; coronary disease; myocardinal infarction; risk factors; smoking; lipid levels;

    Abstract : Aims: The aim of the present study was to explore how risk factors and medication influence clinical presentation and mortality in coronary heart disease (CHD) and to explain how much of the decrease in CHD mortality in Sweden that could be attributed to medical and surgical treatments, and how much to changes in cardiovascular risk factors. Subjects and methods: We included 781 consecutive patients with a first acute myocardial infarction (AMI) during the period 1994 to 2002, to investigate trends in the use of lipid-lowering treatment, and changes in serum lipids.

  5. 5. Psychological distress in coronary heart disease Risk indicators, treatment and cardiovascular prognosis

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Fredrika Norlund; Uppsala universitet.; [2018]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; psychological distress; myocardial infarction; coronary heart disease; depression; anxiety; stress; cognitive behavioral therapy; iCBT; stress management; cardiac rehabilitation; Psychology; Psykologi;

    Abstract : The aims of this thesis were to: (1) explore factors associated with emotional distress; (2) investigate psychosocial stress as a risk factor for cardiovascular (CV) morbidity in patients with coronary heart disease (CHD); (3) investigate the impact of group-based stress management on psychological outcomes, and if that mediates risk of CV events; and (4) evaluate an internet-based cognitive behavioral therapy (iCBT) for emotional distress in patients with a recent myocardial infarction (MI).In Study I, data from the national registry SWEDEHEART on 27,267 MI patients < 75 years was used.
