  1. 1. Mechanical Circulatory Support in Left Ventricular Heart Failure

    Author : Petter Schiller; Laila Hellgren; Anders Jönsson; Göran Dellgren; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Mechanical Circulatory Support; Left Ventricular Heart Failure; Left Ventricular Assist Device; Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation; ECMO; Thorax Surgery; Thoraxkirurgi;

    Abstract : Short-term mechanical circulatory support (MCS) with ventricular assist devices or veno-arterial extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (VA ECMO) has become the standard treatment in patients with cardiogenic shock unresponsive to pharmacological treatment. However, the haemodynamic effects of these devices are not yet fully described, nor are their effects on ventricular function and myocardial recovery. READ MORE

  2. 2. Mechanical circulatory support in patients with severe heart failure

    Author : Hans Lidén; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Severe heart failure has a poor prognosis. Mechanical circulatory support (MCS) is capable of assisting the circulation in selected patients to bridge them to heart transplantation or recovery of heart function. MCS is manufactured in short-term or long-term designs. READ MORE

    Abstract : A new EU directive on used vehicles has recently been introduced. It demands that for every scrapped car, at least 85% by weight must be recycled by the year 2006 and 95% by 2015. The current level is about 80%. The car disassembly industry was chosen as the study object of this thesis. READ MORE

  4. 4. The use of mechanical circulatory support and passive ventricular constraint in patients with acute and chronic heart failure

    Author : Hans Granfeldt; Henrik Ahn; Torbjörn Ivert; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Abstract : Many patients are diagnosed as having chronic heart failure (CHF) and apart from the fact that daily activities are impaired, they are great consumers of health care, and the prognosis is poor. The distinction between acute heart failure (AHF) and CHF may be difficult and is more a question of time rather than severity. READ MORE

  5. 5. Aspects on extracorporeal life support for severe acute respiratory failure with special reference to the influenza A/H1N1 2009 pandemic

    Author : Bernhard Holzgraefe; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation provides pulmonary and circulatory support. First abandoned from the majority of the intensive care community because of disappointing results in several trials (with questionable methods), it experienced a renaissance during the H1N1 influenza pandemic in 2009/2010.
