  1. 1. Clinical probability assessment and biochemical markers in the diagnosis of deep vein thrombosis

    University dissertation from Lund University

    Author : Johan Elf; [2010]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Venous thrombosis; APC-PCI complex.; D-Dimer; Clinical probability; Diagnosis;

    Abstract : The combination of pre-test clinical probability assessment and D-dimer test is now widely applied in the diagnostic process of DVT. The general objective of the present investigation was to validate these results in a Swedish routine emergency setting were the prevalence of the disease is high and were the clinical probability assessment was handled by many junior physicians.

  2. 2. VENOUS THROMBOEMBOLISM IN SOUTHERN SWEDEN EPIDEMIOLOGY AND RISK FACTORS

    University dissertation from Department of Vascular diseases, Skåne University Hospital Malmö, Lund University

    Author : Nazim Isma; [2012]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; epidemiology; Venous thromboembolism VTE ; risk factors; factor V leiden FVL ; socioeconomic status SES ; upper extremety deep venous thrombosis UEDVT ; haemoglobin Hb ; low molecular weight heparin LMWH ; labour;

    Abstract : Despite the fact that venous thromboembolism (VTE) is an important cause of morbidity and mortality there is still insufficient information on VTE risk factors and patient characteristics in the general population. Previously published incidences of VTE (deep venous thrombosis [DVT] and pulmonary embolism [PE]) vary from 71 to 192 per 100,000 individuals per year. READ MORE

  3. 3. Venous thromboembolism. Aspects on risk factors, diagnostic tools and treatment with thrombin inhibition

    University dissertation from Göteborg

    Author : Karin Wåhlander; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2002]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; deep vein thrombosis; pulmonary embolism; venous thromboembolism; Factor V Leiden; prothrombin gene G20210A; thrombin inhibition; ximelagatran; melagatran; PT; APTT; D-dimer.;

    Abstract : Venous thromboembolism (VTE), comprising deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism (PE), is a multifactorial disease. The aims of the present thesis were to investigate Factor V Leiden and prothrombin G20210A mutations as potential risk factors for VTE during and after major surgery, to compare different D-dimer assays and evaluate their usefulness in the diagnosis of DVT, to investigate clinical effects, safety and pharmacokinetic properties of an oral thrombin inhibitor (ximelagatran) when treating VTE and finally to investigate the usefulness of coagulation assays (APTT and PT) during treatment with thrombin inhibition.

  4. 4. Carbon Dioxide Pneumoperitoneum - Hemodynamic Consequences and Thromboembolic Complications

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Fredrik Lindberg; K G Ljungström; [2002]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Surgery; Laparoscopic surgery; carbon dioxide pneumoperitoneum; hemodynamics; coagulation; fibrinolysis; thromboembolic complications; phlebography; Kirurgi; MEDICINE Surgery; MEDICIN Kirurgi; Surgery; kirurgi;

    Abstract : The laparoscopic way of performing general surgical procedures was introduced all over the Western world in a few years around 1990. No previous scientific studies of the safety of this new way of performing general surgery had been undertaken. READ MORE

  5. 5. Development of a Method to Measure Plasma Levels of Activated Protein C in Complex with Protein C Inhibitor

    University dissertation from Clinical Chemistry, Malmö

    Author : Karin Strandberg; [2001]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; protein C inhibitor; activated protein C; hypercoagulability; deep vein thrombosis; Clinical chemistry; myocardial infarction; Klinisk kemi;

    Abstract : Acute myocardial infarction (MI) and deep venous thrombosis (DVT) are conditions caused by thrombus formation with activation of the coagulation system. The plasma concentration of the complex between activated protein C (APC) and protein C inhibitor (PCI), APC–PCI complex is increased in such states. READ MORE
