  1. 1. Acute Pulmonary Embolism : not just an acute condition after all

    Author : Therese Andersson; Stefan Söderberg; Bo Carlberg; Bengt Zöller; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Acute Pulmonary Embolism; Chronic Thromboembolic Pulmonary Hypertension CTEPH ; Chronic Thromboembolic Pulmonary Disease CTEPD ; invärtesmedicin; Internal Medicine; kardiologi; Cardiology;

    Abstract : Background: Acute pulmonary embolism (PE) is the third most common cardiovascular disease following myocardial infarction and stroke. Despite diagnostic improvements, the diagnosis of PE is still associated with many difficulties, as the symptoms of an acute PE are nonspecific. READ MORE

  2. 2. On diagnostic procedures in pulmonary embolism

    Author : Mårten Söderberg; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; CTPA; D-dimer; deep venous thrombosis; pre-test probability score; pulmonary arteriography; pulmonary embolism; venous thromboembolism; von Willebrand factor antigen; Wells score.;

    Abstract : Pulmonary embolism (PE) and deep venous thrombosis (DVT) are two entities of venous thromboembolism (VTE). PE is a common cause of mortality and morbidity. The symptoms and signs of PE are difficult to interpret, and the diagnosis is difficult to establish. READ MORE

  3. 3. Right ventricular function in pulmonary embolism

    Author : Riikka Rydman; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : Patients with pulmonary embolism (PE) and right ventricular (RV) dysfunction are known to be at risk of in-hospital clinical worsening and PE-related mortality. Even in patients with a preserved systemic arterial pressure, the RV dysfunction indicates a higher risk, thus affecting the patients’ level of care and the therapeutic approach. READ MORE

  4. 4. Gas Embolism in Laparoscopic Liver Surgery

    Author : Diddi Fors; Sten Rubertsson; Dag Arvidsson; Tor Inge Tønnessen; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; Gas embolism; laparoscopic liver; CVP; PEEP; high frequency jet ventilation; cardiopulmonary physiology; carbon dioxide; Anaesthesiology and Intensive Care; Anestesiologi och intensivvård;

    Abstract : Laparoscopic liver surgery is complicated due to the structure of this organ with open sinusoids. A serious disadvantage is the risk of gas embolism (GE) due to CO2 pneumoperitoneum. CO2 can enter the vascular system through a wounded vein. A common opinion is that gas fluxes along a pressure gradient, e. READ MORE

  5. 5. MRI sequences for detection of acute pulmonary embolism

    Author : Roberto Vargas Paris; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : In recent years a range of imaging techniques have emerged to help diagnose patients with suspected acute Pulmonary Embolism (PE). This is particularly useful for those who are contraindicated (renal failure or allergies) to the contrast media that is needed to perform Computed Tomography Pulmonary Angiography (CTPA), which would be the usual diagnostic tool of choice.
