  1. 1. Health-related quality of life in recipients with an implantable cardioverter defibrillator due to life-threatening arrhythmias : a 5 year follow-up

    Author : Inger Flemme; [2004]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; defibrillators implantable; ICD shocks; life-threatening arrhythmia; quality of life; satisfaction; uncertainty; MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    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

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

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Annika Winbo; Annika Rydberg; Eric Schulze-Bahr; [2012]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Long QT Syndrome; Jervell and Lange-Nielsen Syndrome; inherited arrhythmia; founder effects; clinical genetics; haplotype analysis; mutation age; founder mutation; clinical phenotype; life-threatening cardiac events; mutation-specific; KCNQ1 gene; modifier genes; sequence variants; risk stratification; risk factor; gender; Pediatrics; pediatrik;

    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

  4. 4. Applications of Vectorcardiography for Diagnosis and Risk Stratification in Subpopulations at Risk for Life-Threatening Arrhythmias

    University dissertation from Lund University, Faculty of Medicine

    Author : Daniel Cortez; [2020]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Vectorcardiography; atrial depolarization; ventricular depolarization repolarization;

    Abstract : Introduction: Vectorcardiography, or 3-dimensional electrocardiography is a tool which can be used to identify subtle changes in the electrical forces of the heart, and which can be applied to atrial depolarization, ventricular depolarization and ventricular repolarization for prognostic and diagostic purposes. Methods: Kor’s regression-related and quasi orthogonal methods was used to derive vectorcardiographic parameters from the 12-lead electrocardiogram and applied to a cohort of cryptogenic stroke patients to assess atrial fibrillation, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy patients to assess for ventricular arrhythmias, applied with right-precordial directed quasi orthogonal method to arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia/cardiomyopathy (ARVC/D) patients for diagnosis, and applied to ventricular repolarization only to patients with genotype-positive/phenotype-negative Long QT2 syndrome (KNCH2 mutation) to assess for cardiac events.

  5. 5. 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; Anna Strömberg; Bengt Fridlund; Nils Edvardsson; Ulrika Hallberg; Lars-Olof Persson; [2009]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Anxiety; arrhythmia; defibrillators; depression; grounded theory; perceived control; qualitative; quality of life; uncertainty; MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    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
