    Author : Jamal Barani; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2006]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Risk factors.; Peripheral arterial disease.; Medicin människa och djur ; Medicine human and vertebrates ; Critical limb ischaemia.; inflammatory markers.; Mortality.; Congestive heart failure.;

    Abstract : In Conclusion Paper I. In patients undergoing aorto-iliac angiography, no effects of the procedure were seen upon inflammatory mediators. On the other hand, angiography influenced markers of platelet activation in these patients. Paper II. READ MORE

  2. 2. Quality of life in patients with cronical lower limb ischaemia: Before and after revascularisation

    University dissertation from Department of Nursing, Faculty of Medicine, Lund University

    Author : Rosemarie Klefsgård; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2000]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Percutaneous Transluminal Angioplasti; By-Pass; critical ischaemia; Intermittent claudication; Sence of Coherence; Short Form 36; Quality of life; Nottingham Health Profile; traumatologi; ortopedi; Kirurgi; traumatology; orthopaedics; Surgery; Validity; Responsiveness; Effect Size; Outcome;

    Abstract : The aim of this thesis was to assess quality of life in patients with varying degrees of lower limb ischaemia before and after revascularisation, to assess quality of life in relation to the degree of ischaemia and the respondents’ sense of coherence (SOC) and in comparison with a healthy control group, and to compare two different quality of life instruments regarding their usefulness as outcome measures. Patients were assessed using the Nottingham Health Profile (NHP) and the SOC scale before and six months after successful revascularisation and compared with 102 healthy controls. READ MORE

  3. 3. Infrainguinal Percutaneous Transluminal Angioplasty in Limbs with Severe Lower Limb Ischaemia

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Anne-Marie Löfberg; Uppsala universitet.; [2001]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Oncology; infrainguinal; chronic ischaemia; percutaneous transluminal angioplasty; duplex; bypass grafts; Onkologi; MEDICINE Surgery Oncology; MEDICIN Kirurgi Onkologi; radiologi; Radiology;

    Abstract : Infrainguinal bypass grafting is an established method in the treatment of patients with femoropopliteal and crural occlusive disease leading to critical lower limb ischaemia (CLI). However, complications related to surgical procedure are not negligible and percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) has emerged as an alternative. READ MORE

  4. 4. The importance of nitric oxide bioavailability and endothelial mechanisms for cardioprotection by pharmacological intervention during myocardial ischaemia and reperfusion

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Medicine

    Author : Andrey Gourine; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2004]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; ATP sensitive K channels; endothelin-1; clevidipine; ETA receptor antagonist; glibenclamide; 5-hydroxydecanoic acid; infarct size; ischaemia; myeloperoxidase; nitric oxide; nitric oxide synthase; pig; preconditioning; rat; reperfusion.;

    Abstract : Myocardial ischaemia initiates complex severe cellular changes and, after a critical time period, myocardial cell death. Despite that restitution of coronary blood flow is an absolute pre-requisite for tissue survival, myocardial reperfusion per se will also increase irreversible damage in the jeopardised myocardium.
