  1. 1. Nitrates and Left Ventricular Dysfunction

    Author : Erik Tingberg; Kardiologi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; lipid peroxidation; malondialdehyde; peptide; brain natriuretic peptide; left ventricular dysfunction; nitrates; acute myocardial infarction; heart failure; atrial natriuretic; diuretics; echocardiography; haemodynamic measurements; neurohumoral activation; diastolic dysfunction; Cardiovascular system; Medicin människa och djur ; Medicine human and vertebrates ; Kardiovaskulära systemet; oxidative stress; isoprostanes;

    Abstract : Use of beta-blockers and inhibitors of the renin angiotensin system (RAS) is established practice in the treatment of chronic heart failure (CHF). Clinical studies also suggest beneficial long-term effects of nitrates in CHF. READ MORE

  2. 2. Echocardiographic measurements at Takotsubo cardiomyopathy : transient left ventricular dysfunction

    Author : Micael Waldenborg; Kent Emilsson; Ole Fröbert; Per Lindqvist; Örebro universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Echocardiography; takotsubo; annulus motion; cardiac autonomic function; broken heart; diastolic; ventricular mass; concentric wall motion; Medicine; Medicin; Biomedicin; Biomedicine;

    Abstract : Takotsubo cardiomyopathy (TTC) is a disease characterized by transient left ventricular (LV) dysfunction and typical wall motion abnormalities in apical parts, without obvious signs of coronary influence. Due to its elusive natural cause and the lack of clarified pathology, further studies are needed. READ MORE

  3. 3. Left ventricular dysfunction in critically ill patients

    Author : Oscar Cavefors; Göteborgs universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Left ventricular dysfunction; Left ventricular diastolic dysfunction; hsTNT; NT-proBNP; Coronary angiography; Regional wall motion abnormalities; Takotsubo syndrome; Septic cardiomyopathy; MINOCA; Cardiac disease; Intensive care unit; Echocardiography;

    Abstract : ABSTRACT Background: Cardiac dysfunction is common in Intensive Care Unit (ICU) patients and can contribute to multiorgan failure and death. Despite this, few studies have been performed on pathogenies, prevalence, diagnosis and impact on mortality in unselected ICU patients. READ MORE

  4. 4. Echocardiography/Doppler for the evaluation of coronary artery function, left ventricular function and the relationship between early diastolic and systolic function

    Author : Reidar Winter; Malmö Institutionen för kliniska vetenskaper; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; coronary flow reserve; contrast echocardiography; early diastolic downward velocity; flow propagation velocity; colour M-mode; diastolic function; Echocardiography; Doppler; Kardiovaskulära systemet; Cardiovascular system;

    Abstract : Two specific areas of development in echocardiography are assessment of left ventricular (LV) diastolic function and myocardial ischemia. This thesis describes echocardiographic methodology in these two areas. READ MORE

  5. 5. Cardiac abnormalities in chronic kidney disease

    Author : Pavlos Kashioulis; Göteborgs universitet; []

    Abstract : Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is a global health problem associated with increased risk of mortality and development of end-stage renal disease (ESRD). Cardiovascular diseases are the leading cause of morbidity and mortality even before the development of ESRD. READ MORE
