  1. 1. Early Invasive Strategy in Unstable Coronary Artery Disease : Outcome in Relation to Risk Stratification

    Author : Erik Diderholm; Lars Grip; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Medical sciences; Unstable angina; non-ST elevation myocardial infarction; risk stratification; coronary angiography; revascularisation; MEDICIN OCH VÅRD; MEDICINE; MEDICIN; kardiologi; Cardiology;

    Abstract : In unstable coronary artery disease (CAD) it still is a matter of debate which patients should undergo early revascularisation. In the FRISC II study (n=2457) an early invasive strategy was, compared to a primarily non-invasive strategy, associated with reduced mortality and myocardial infarction (MI) rates. READ MORE

  2. 2. New Risk Markers in Atrial Fibrillation

    Author : Ziad Hijazi; Jonas Oldgren; Lars Wallentin; Agneta Siegbahn; Ola Hammarsten; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; atrial fibrillation; stroke risk; cardiac biomarkers; troponin; natriuretic peptides; NT-proBNP; risk stratification; Cardiology; Kardiologi;

    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

  3. 3. Circulating markers of risk and etiology in colorectal cancer

    Author : Justin Harbs; Sophia Harlid; Bethany van Guelpen; Xijia Liu; Henrik Grönberg; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Colorectal cancer; CRC; sex hormones; colon cancer; DNA methylation; proteomics; risk; etiology; Cancer Epidemiology; cancerepidemiologi;

    Abstract : Background: Colorectal cancer is the third most commonly diagnosed cancer in men and women. Worldwide around 2 million individuals are diagnosed each year – a number expected to increase as colorectal cancer risk factors become more prevalent. READ MORE

  5. 5. Risk stratification in cardiac surgery: Algorithms and applications

    Author : Johan Nilsson; Thoraxkirurgi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Surgery; orthopaedics; traumatology; Kardiovaskulära systemet; Cardiovascular system; Cardiac surgery; Statistics; Artificial neural networks; Resource utilization; Mortality; Risk factors; Kirurgi; ortopedi; traumatologi;

    Abstract : The aims of this research was to compare different risk score algorithms with regard to their validity to predict 30-day and one-year mortality after open-heart surgery, to evaluate if the preoperative risk stratification model EuroSCORE predicts the different components of resource utilization in cardiac surgery, and to systematically evaluate the accuracy and performance of artificial neural networks (ANNs) to select and rank the most important risk factors for operative mortality in open-heart surgery. Preoperative evaluation of the surgical risk is an important component in cardiac surgery. READ MORE
