    Abstract : Background: The Framingham Study from 1988 showed a heavy impact of diabetes mellitus (DM) on the risk and prognosis of cardiovascular disease (CVD). Several other studies have confirmed that DM is an independent risk factor for coronary heart disease (CHD) and that patients with DM have a poor prognosis. READ MORE

  2. 2. New Risk Markers in Atrial Fibrillation

    Abstract : Atrial fibrillation (AF) confers an independent increased risk of stroke and death. The stroke risk is very heterogeneous and current risk stratification models based on clinical variables, such as the CHADS2 and CHA2DS2VASc score, only offer a modest discriminating value. READ MORE

In parallel different measures of impaired peripheral circulation were evaluated. READ MORE

  5. 5. Risk Factors of Tumour Recurrence and Reduced Survival in Rectal Cancer

    University dissertation from Lund University, Faculty of Medicine

    Abstract : In Sweden, 2000 patients are diagnosed with rectal cancer annually. In 1995, the Swedish Rectal Cancer Registry (SRCR) was launched to supervise and assure the quality of the management of rectal cancer. Advances in the management of rectal cancer have reduced the local recurrence (LR) rate and improved survival. READ MORE
