  1. 11. Large cerebral artery occlusion and recanalisation in stroke patients treated with intravenous thrombolysis : clinical and radiological markers and their clinical relevance

    Author : Tatiana Kharitonova; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : Large cerebral artery occlusion accounts for 40-46% of ischemic strokes. These strokes are characterized by extensive neurological deficit, poor functional outcome, and increased mortality (up to 40-80% in the most severe clinical syndromes). READ MORE

  2. 12. Frontotemporal dementia in late life: Prevalence, risk factors and mortality

    Author : Thorsteinn Gislason; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Frontotemporal dementia; Older adullts; Prevalence; Risk factors; Mortality;

    Abstract : Aims: The overall aim of this thesis was to increase knowledge about late-life behavior variant frontotemporal dementia (bvFTD). One aim was to estimate the prevalence of bvFTD among older adults and to determine the agreement between different bvFTD criteria. READ MORE

  3. 13. Experimental and clinical perspective on stroke : Evaluation by behavior, magnetic resonance imaging and morphology

    Author : Zhengguang Chen; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; Cerebral ischemia; stroke; penumbra; behavior; hemodynamics; MRI; perfusion; diffusion; relaxation times; rat;

    Abstract : In order to further improve the diagnostic power of the NEU technique in the use for clinical evaluation of brain lesions, like in stroke patients, a biological model system had to be implemented where the relevant aspects of the brain injury and its effects could be mimicked. Two well controlled and reproducible rat models were chosen, one developed by Bjelke et al. READ MORE

  4. 14. Cerebral white matter changes in patients with cognitive impairment - clinical and pathophysiological aspects

    Author : Michael Jonsson; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; white matter changes; vascular factors; cognitive impairment; neuropsychiatric symptoms; cerebrospinal fluid biomarkers; demyelination; axonal degeneration;

    Abstract : Cerebral white matter changes (WMC), detected with computed tomography (CT) or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), represent a common condition in elderly people. However, the prognostic, symptomatological and biochemical constituents of WMC are only partially known. READ MORE

  5. 15. Assessment of predicting blood flow and atherosclerosis in the aorta and renal arteries

    Author : Alexander Fuchs; Lisa Prahl Wittberg; Örjan Smedby; Chunliang Wang; Anders Persson; Elazer Edelman; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Blodflödessimulering; Åderförkalkning; Väggskjuvspänning; Blodrehologiska modeller; Teknisk mekanik; Engineering Mechanics;

    Abstract : Cardiovascular diseases (CVD) are the most common cause of death in large parts of the world. Atherosclerosis (AS) has a major part in most CVDs. AS is a slowly developingdisease which is dependent on multiple factors such as genetics and life style (food, smoking, and physical activities). READ MORE
