  1. 1. Coagulation Inhibition and Development of Myocardial Damage in ST-Elevation Myocardial Infarction

    Author : Gunnar Frostfeldt; Marianne Hartford; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Medical sciences; myocardial infarction; fibrinolysis; lmw-heparin; coagulation; troponin-T; PET; MEDICIN OCH VÅRD; MEDICINE; MEDICIN; Medicine; medicin;

    Abstract : In 101 patients with ST-elevation myocardial infarction treated with streptokinase the additional effects of lmw-heparin (dalteparin) were investigated. The prognostic value of troponin-T (TnT) was elucidated and the development of myocardial damage was investigated with Positron Emission Tomography (PET). READ MORE

  2. 2. Perioperative myocardial damage and cardiac outcome in patients-at-risk undergoing non-cardiac surgery

    Author : Anna Oscarsson Tibblin; Christina Eintrei; Sven-Erik Ricksten; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Myocardial damage; cardiac complication; outcome; aspirin; acetylsalicylic acid; Anaesthetics and intensive care; Anestesiologi och intensivvård;

    Abstract : Despite increasingly sophisticated perioperative management, cardiovascular complications continue to be major challenges for the clinician. As a growing number of elderly patients with known coronary artery disease (CAD) or with risk factors for CAD are undergoing non-cardiac surgery, cardiovascular complications will remain a significant clinical problem in the future.

  3. 3. Perioperative Myocardial Damage and Morbidity after Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting

    Author : Johnny Steuer; Elisabeth Ståhle; Bertil Lindahl; Gunnar Engström; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Surgery; coronary surgery; creatine kinase; magnetic resonance imaging; morbidity; mortality; perioperative myocardial infarction; troponin; women; Kirurgi; Surgery; Kirurgi;

    Abstract : The aims of this project were to investigate the impact of perioperative myocardial damage on morbidity and mortality after coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG), to determine whether biochemical marker levels after CABG correlate to perioperative myocardial infarct size, and to assess the long-term morbidity after CABG, in particular to determine whether women do worse.The studies were conducted in patients who had undergone isolated, primary CABG.

  4. 4. Myocardial protection by hyperoxia

    Author : Peeter Tähepõld; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : Oxygen is essential for normal respiration in aerobic organisms, and prolonged deficit of oxygen always has detrimental consequences.However, all aerobic life forms are faced with the threat of oxidation from molecular oxygen. READ MORE

  5. 5. Pharmacological interventions against myocardial ischemia and reperfusion injury

    Author : Lars O Karlsson; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : Myocardial reperfusion injury; opioids; cyclosporine A;

    Abstract : Background: Ischaemic heart disease is the leading cause of death in the industrialised world. Although the concept of early restoration of coronary blood-flow constitutes an important factor to reduce the injury caused by myocardial ischaemia, reperfusion in itself can aggravate the damage to myocardial tissue, a phenomenon denoted myocardial reperfusion injury.
