  1. 1. Pulmonary hypertension. Clinical and pathophysiological studies

    Author : Nedim Selimovic; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2008]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Pulmonary hypertension; Echocardiography; Right heart catheterisation; Pulmonary vascular resistance; Pulmonary function tests; Lung transplantation; Mortality on the waiting list; Vascular remodelling; Growth substances; Inflammation; Endothelin;

    Abstract : Pulmonary hypertension (PH) is a common abnormality, most often associated with various cardiopulmonary diseases. Pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) is a devastating pulmonary vascular disease characterised by the proliferation of endothelial, smooth-muscle cells and fibroblasts. READ MORE

  2. 2. Remodeling of the pulmonary circulation - a novel response to allergic airway inflammation

    University dissertation from Inst för Experimentell Medicinsk Vetenskap, Lunds Universitet

    Author : Kristina Rydell-Törmänen; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2008]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Vascular remodeling; OVA; HDM; asthma;

    Abstract : Asthma is characterized, not only by inflammation but also by airway and vascular remodeling. Airway remodeling is established early in disease, structural alterations have been found in children, and is thought to contribute to asthma symptoms. Unfortunately, airway remodeling is considered difficult to reverse and it seldom resolves completely. READ MORE

  3. 3. Hemodynamic Effects of Lung Function Optimization in Experimental Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Arnoldo Santos; Uppsala universitet.; [2018]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Acute respiratory distress syndrome; Lung protective ventilation; Mechanical ventilation; Open lung approach; Pulmonary heart disease; Pulmonary vascular mechanics; Pulmonary vascular dysfunction; Pulse wave analysis; Right ventricular dysfunction; Anestesiologi och intensivvård; Anaesthesiology and Intensive Care; Fysiologi; Physiology;

    Abstract : Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS) is a severe pulmonary inflammation affecting thousands of patients every year in Sweden and has a mortality of 30-50%. Mechanical ventilation (MV) is usually necessary, but could per se augment the inflammation and contribute to mortality. READ MORE

  4. 4. Lung Transplantation: Clinical and experimental studies

    University dissertation from Department of Respiratory Medicine and Allergology, Lund University

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Transplantation av lungor är ett relativt nytt behandlingsalternativ vid svår lung-sjukdom. Den första lungtransplantationen på människa gjordes 1963. Patienten dog efter 18 dagar i njursvikt. Mellan 1963 och 1980 gjordes ca 40 lungtransplantationer i världen med nedslående resultat. READ MORE

  5. 5. Surgically corrected univentricular hearts. Anatomical, haemodynamic and functional status at a long-term follow-up

    University dissertation from Göteborg

    Author : Eva Strömvall-Larsson; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2003]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; cavopulmonary connections; univentricular hearts; long-term follow-up; pulmonary; arteriovenous malformations; lung volumes; cardiac output; pulmonary gas exchange and maximal; exercise studies;

    Abstract : The Fontan operation and its modifications are applied to a large spectrum of congenital heart defectswith univentricular physiology. The Fontan circulation is characterised by a reduced, non-pulsatilepulmonary blood flow and the elevated central venous pressure is the main driving force for thepulmonary blood flow. READ MORE
