  1. 1. Long QT syndrome studies of diagnostic methods

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Ulla-Britt Diamant; Umeå universitet.; [2013]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Cardiology; kardiologi;

    Abstract : Background: The Long QT Syndrome (LQTS) is a hereditary heart disease with risk of malignant ventricular arrhythmia and sudden cardiac death. Despite our increased knowledge about genotype and phenotype correlation we still rely on the 12-lead ECG for assessment of the QT interval and the T-wave morphology for diagnosis and risk stratification.

  2. 2. Atrial fibrillation treatment, associated conditions and quantification of symptoms

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå University

    Author : Niklas Höglund; Umeå universitet.; [2017]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Atrial fibrillation; cardioversion; atorvastatin; high-sensitivity C-reactive protein; symptoms; sleep apnea; Cardiology; kardiologi;

    Abstract : Background: Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most prevalent cardiac arrhythmia. There is a need for new pharmacological treatment strategies since the current antiarrhythmic drugs have a modest efficacy and may have severe side effects. Cardioversion (CV) of AF offers an opportunity to study related conditions in sinus rhythm (SR) and during AF. READ MORE

  3. 3. Patterns of non-invasive imaging of carotid atherosclerosis

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå University

    Author : Pranvera Ibrahimi; Umeå universitet.; [2015]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Cardiology; kardiologi;

    Abstract : Atherosclerosis is an inflammatory disease that can be generalized, affecting more than one arterial bed simultaneously, or localized, manifested in one system. Ultrasound based measurements of plaque textural features, such as low grey scale median (GSM), echolucent (hypoechoic) plaque types and juxtaluminal black (hypoechoic) area (JBA) are manifestation of potentially unstable lesions.

  4. 4. Carotid artery disease plaque features and vulnerability

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå University

    Author : Fisnik Jashari; Umeå universitet.; [2015]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Carotid atherosclerosis; ultrasound; plaque features; echogenicity; calcification; surface plaque irregularities; subclinical atherosclerosis; cerebrovascular symptoms; Cardiology; kardiologi; cardiovascular disease; hjärt- och kärlforskning;

    Abstract : Background: Atherosclerosis is an important cause of stroke. Ultrasound offers the convenience of real-time and detailed assessment of carotid plaque features as well as arterial wall thickening and composition. READ MORE

  5. 5. Cardiovascular risk factors in aortic stenosis

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Johan Ljungberg; Umeå universitet.; [2018]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Valvular heart disease; aortic stenosis; bicuspid aortic valve; cardiovascular risk factors; hypertension; diabetes mellitus; smoking; hypercholesterolemia; obesity; shrunken pore; renal failure; Epidemiology; epidemiologi; Cardiology; kardiologi;

    Abstract : Introduction: Aortic stenosis (AS) is the most common hemodynamic significant valvular heart disease and affects about 2% of the population. The incidence increases with age. When symptoms of the stenotic aortic valve disease eventually occur the 2-year mortality exceeds 50%. READ MORE
