  1. 16. Metabolic aspects of cardiac arrhythmias

    University dissertation from Göteborg : University of Gothenburg

    Author : Sigfus Gizurarson; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2012]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Kardiologi; Electrofysiologi; Djurexperiment; Metabolism;

    Abstract : Cardiac arrhythmias are an important cause of mortality and morbidity in patients with cardiac diseases. Sudden death due to ventricular tachycardia and fibrillation (VT/VF) in the setting of acute myocardial infarction (AMI) and heart failure (HF) is a frequent cause of premature death. READ MORE

  2. 17. The role of leptin in endothelial dysfunction and cardiovascular disease

    University dissertation from Göteborg : University of Gothenburg

    Author : Manuel Cruz Gonzalez Garcia; Stefan Söderberg; Jan Engvall; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; leptin; obesity; endothelial dysfunction; cardiovascular disease; Cardiology; kardiologi;

    Abstract : Objective:  Obesity has become the leading cause of mortality worldwide; however, the fundamental pathophysiology underlying this association remains unclear. The discovery of adipokines, i.e., cytokines produced by adipose cells (adipocytes), revealed that adipose tissue is a highly endocrine organ, thus opening new lines of investigation. READ MORE

  3. 18. From Stenting to Preventing Invasive and Long-term Treatment for Coronary Artery Disease in Sweden

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Kristina Hambræus; Bertil Lindahl; Bo Lagerqvist; Eva Prescott; [2014]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Coronary artery disease; guideline adherence; prevention; cholesterol treatment; lifestyle; percutaneous coronary intervention; Cardiology; Kardiologi;

    Abstract : Coronary artery disease (CAD) is the leading cause of death worldwide. Treatment with coronary interventions, long-term treatment and life style changes can reduce symptoms and improve prognosis. READ MORE

  4. 19. New Risk Markers in Atrial Fibrillation

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Ziad Hijazi; Jonas Oldgren; Lars Wallentin; Agneta Siegbahn; Ola Hammarsten; [2013]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; atrial fibrillation; stroke risk; cardiac biomarkers; troponin; natriuretic peptides; NT-proBNP; risk stratification; Cardiology; Kardiologi;

    Abstract : Atrial fibrillation (AF) confers an independent increased risk of stroke and death. The stroke risk is very heterogeneous and current risk stratification models based on clinical variables, such as the CHADS2 and CHA2DS2VASc score, only offer a modest discriminating value. READ MORE

  5. 20. Metabolic risk markers and relative survival in patients with aortic stenosis requiring surgery

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Anders Holmgren; Ulf Näslund; Stefan Söderberg; Michael Henein; Rune Haaverstad; [2019]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; aortic stenosis; aortic valve surgery; coronary artery disease; prospective cohort study; risk markers; lipoprotein a ; apolipoproteins; proteomics; troponin T; C-reactive protein; relative survival; observed survival; kardiologi; Cardiology;

    Abstract : Background: Aortic stenosis (AS) is the most common valve disorder requiring surgery in developed countries. The etiology of AS is only partly known.  Identification of new biomarkers in prospective studies could lead to novel insights in the etiology of AS, and possibly lead to improved clinical management.
