  1. 1. Acute coronary syndrome bleeding, platelets and gender

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Anna Holm; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; Region Östergötland.; [2019]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : BACKGROUNDBleeding complications increase mortality in patients with acute coronary syndrome (ACS). Potential gender difference in bleeding regarding prevalence, location, severity and prognostic impact is still controversial and not well investigated. In regard to this aspect the relevance of triple antithrombotic therapy (TAT) is questioned. READ MORE

  2. 2. Platelet reactivity and comorbidities in acute coronary syndrome

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Fredrik Björklund; Umeå universitet.; [2012]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; acute coronary syndrome; myocardial infarction; platelet reactivity; platelet aggregation; Inflammation; infection; diabetes mellitus; chronic kidney disease; acute kidney injury; Cardiology; kardiologi;

    Abstract : Background In the event of an acute coronary syndrome (ACS), the risk of death and complications such as stroke and re-infarction is high during the first month. Diabetes, impaired kidney function, elevated markers of systemic inflammation and high level of platelet reactivity have all been associated with worsened prognosis in ACS patients. READ MORE

  3. 3. Cardiac Troponins in Patients with Suspected or Confirmed Acute Coronary Syndrome New Applications for Biomarkers in Coronary Artery Disease

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Kai Eggers; Uppsala universitet.; [2007]
    Keywords : Internal medicine; Ischemic heart disease; Acute myocardial infarction; Troponin; Natriuretic peptide; CRP; Cystatin C; Artificial neural network; Point of care measurements; Risk prediction; Invärtesmedicin;

    Abstract : The cardiac troponins are the biochemical markers of choice for the diagnosis of acute myocardial infarction (AMI) and risk prediction in patients with acute coronary syndrome (ACS). In this thesis, the role of early serial cardiac troponin I (cTnI) testing was assessed in fairly unselected patient populations admitted because of chest pain and participating in the FAST II-study (n=197) and the FASTER I-study (n=380).

  4. 4. Platelet Inhibition, Revascularization, and Risk Prediction in Non-ST-elevation Acute Coronary Syndromes

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Daniel Lindholm; Uppsala universitet.; [2015]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; coronary artery disease; myocardial infarction; acute coronary syndrome; non-ST-elevation acute coronary syndrome; P2Y12 inhibitors; ticagrelor; biomarkers; revascularization; percutaneous coronary intervention; risk prediction; Cardiology; Kardiologi;

    Abstract : Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death worldwide and ischemic heart disease is the most common manifestation. Despite improved outcomes during the last decades, patients with acute coronary syndromes (ACS) are still at substantial risk of recurrent ischemic events and mortality. READ MORE

  5. 5. Acute coronary syndrome and cardiac arrest in the elderly

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Berglind Libungan; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2015]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Elderly; Acute Coronary Syndrome; Cardiac Arrest;

    Abstract : The elderly are currently the fastest growing segment of clinical practice but the quality and quantity of the underlying scientific evidence to guide treatment is limited. In this thesis five different studies investigating different aspects of geriatric cardiac care are presented. READ MORE
