    Abstract : The general aim of this thesis was to describe self-reported health-related quality of life (HRQoL) in recipients with an implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) due to life-threatening arrhythmias over a 5-year period. The design was prospective and longitudinal. READ MORE

  2. 2. Long QT syndrome in Sweden founder effects and associated cardiac phenotypes

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Abstract : Background: We aimed to increase the knowledge regarding the familial arrhythmogenic disorder Long QT Syndrome (LQTS) and its recessive variant Jervell and Lange-Nielsen Syndrome (JLNS) in Sweden, including prevalences and clinical phenotypes. A specific focus was directed towards two KCNQ1 mutations –p.Y111C and p. READ MORE

  3. 3. Living with life-saving technology Long-term follow up of recipients with implantable cardioverter defibrillator

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Inger Flemme; Högskolan i Halmstad.; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2009]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICINE; MEDICIN; Anxiety; arrhythmia; defibrillators; depression; grounded theory; perceived control; qualitative; quality of life; uncertainty;

    Abstract : The evidence that treatment of life-threatening arrhythmia (LTA) with an Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator (ICD) can prolong life is convincing. Living with a lifelong heart disease will gradually influence the everyday life and encompasses some or all aspects of life. READ MORE

  4. 4. Role of the hERG-channel in arrhythmia and teratogenicity. Studies in animal models and the human embryonic heart

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Medicine at Huddinge University Hospital

    Author : Christian Danielsson; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2010]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Background: Drugs that inhibit cardiac repolarization are associated with potentially life threatening side effects in the form of ventricular arrhythmias in humans. Animal studies show that this mechanism also is relevant for the embryo, and that the circulatory depression results in hypoxia with embryotoxicity in the form of malformations and death as a consequence.
