  1. 1. Detection of Myocardial Ischemia using Real-Time Myocardial Contrast Echocardiography

    University dissertation from Malmö : Malmö University. Faculty of Health and Society

    Author : Petri Gudmundsson; Malmö University.; [2006]
    Keywords : Humanities Social Sciences; myocardial contrast echocardiography; MCE; stress echocardiography; adenosine; perfusion; real-time; visual; quantative; wall motion; power modulation; bedside; SPECT; coronary insufficiency;

    Abstract : Echocardiography is an ideal clinical method for obtaining information about morphology and function of the heart. Echocardiography is more accessible, mobile and inexpensive compared to other imaging techniques and has become the perhaps most used diagnostic method in cardiology during recent years. READ MORE

  2. 2. Cardiac morphology and dynamics in Swedish elite orienteers : Evaluation of the right and left ventricle by two-dimensional and doppler echocardiography

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Egil Henriksen; Uppsala universitet.; [1999]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Medical sciences; Echocardiography; sudden unexpected death in young orienteers; right and left ventricular measurements; Doppler echocardiography in athletes; MEDICIN OCH VÅRD; MEDICINE; MEDICIN; Clinical Physiology; klinisk fysiologi;

    Abstract : Background. Between 1979 and 1992, 16 (15 males and 1 female) sudden unexpected cardiac deaths(SUCD) were reported in Swedish orienteers. Compared with previous reports in young athletes there was a 10- to 100-fold increase in the sudden death rate in young male elite orienteers during this period. The mean age was 25 years (range 18-32 years). READ MORE

  3. 3. Takotsubo stress cardiomyopathy and different types of stress

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Clinical Science and Education, Södersjukhuset

    Author : Olov Collste; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2015]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; takotsubo stress cardiomyopathy;

    Abstract : Myocardial infarction with normal coronary angiography (MINCA) is an important subgroup of myocardial infarction for which the prevalence, underlying pathophysiology, prognosis and optimal management are still largely unknown. Interest in and awareness of MINCA has increased in recent years due to the frequent use of coronary angiography, the description of Takotsubo stress cardiomyopathy (TSC) and new sensitive troponin assays.

  4. 4. Importance of cardiac reserve for evaluation and prediction of cardiac function and morbidity assessed by low-dose dobutamine stress echocardiography

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Clinical Science and Education, Södersjukhuset

    Author : Margareta Scharin Täng; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2007]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Stress echocardiography; Heart failure; Beta-1-adrenoceptor; Cardiac reserve;

    Abstract : This thesis aimed to evaluate the cardiac reserves capacity to be used to predict treatment effects, sub clinical heart disease and to evaluate b1-adrenoceptor (AR) gene polymorphism (Ser49Gly). Studies were performed in patients with dilated cardiomyopathy, in rats (young, healthy, diabetic and hypertensive), in mice (immunized against the ?1AR) and in heart-transplanted patients.

  5. 5. Nitrates and Left Ventricular Dysfunction

    University dissertation from Erik Tingberg Department of Clinical Sciences, Lund Cardiology, Faculty of Medicine, Lund University, Sweden

    Author : Erik Tingberg; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2007]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; lipid peroxidation; malondialdehyde; peptide; brain natriuretic peptide; left ventricular dysfunction; nitrates; acute myocardial infarction; heart failure; atrial natriuretic; diuretics; echocardiography; haemodynamic measurements; neurohumoral activation; diastolic dysfunction; Cardiovascular system; Medicin människa och djur ; Medicine human and vertebrates ; Kardiovaskulära systemet; oxidative stress; isoprostanes;

    Abstract : Use of beta-blockers and inhibitors of the renin angiotensin system (RAS) is established practice in the treatment of chronic heart failure (CHF). Clinical studies also suggest beneficial long-term effects of nitrates in CHF. READ MORE
