  1. 1. Iatrogenic Vascular Injuries

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Håkan Rudström; Martin Björck; David Bergqvist; Carl Magnus Wahlgren; [2013]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; vascular injuries; vascular surgery; vascular trauma; injury; medical error; patient safety; postoperative death; postoperative mortality; patient insurance; varicose veins; Kirurgi; Surgery;

    Abstract : Iatrogenic vascular injuries (IVIs) and injuries associated with vascular surgery can cause severe morbidity and death. The aims of this thesis were to study those injuries in the Swedish vascular registry (Swedvasc), the Swedish medical injury insurance where insurance claims are registered, the Population and Cause of death registries, and in patient records, in order to explore preventive strategies.

  2. 2. Comorbidity and vascular risk factors  associated with idiopathic normal pressure hydrocephalus the INPH-CRasH Study

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå University

    Author : Hanna Israelsson Larsen; Jan Malm; Anders Eklund; Norman Relkin; [2016]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; hydrocephalus; normal pressure; vascular disease; vascular risk factors; elderly; depression; case control study; epidemiology; dementia; vascular dementia; small vessel disease; cerebrovascular disease; transient ischemic attack; Neurology; neurologi;

    Abstract : Idiopathic normal pressure hydrocephalus (INPH) is a dementia treatable by insertion of a cerebrospinal fluid shunt. It has been suggested that INPH has similar pathophysiological mechanisms as cerebrovascular disease, but the vascular risk factor (VRF) profile of INPH patients has not been assessed using a modern epidemiological approach.

  3. 3. Perlecan in vascular disease

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Surgical Science

    Author : Tran Phan Kiet; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2005]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Perlecan; heparan sulfate; smooth muscle cells; intimal hyperplasia; vascular disease; atherosclerosis; restenosis; heparin-binding growth factor.;

    Abstract : Atherosclerosis has become the most common cause of death in the world. The development of the disease involves accumulation of lipids in the inner layer of the vessel wall, the intima, and recruitment of inflammatory cells and smooth muscle cells (SMCs). READ MORE

  4. 4. Angiotensin II and vascular disease. Studies in rats and atherosclerosis-prone mice

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Surgical Science

    Author : Maria E Johansson; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2006]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; angiotensin II; atherosclerosis; AT1 receptor; AT2 receptor; blood pressure; hyperinsulinemia; hypertension; oxidative stress; salt; vascular disease; vascular function;

    Abstract : Angiotensin II (Ang II) is of importance for a number of physiological processes but also plays an important pathophysiological role in cardiovascular disease. The aim of this thesis was to evaluate the role of Ang II in hypertension-related atherosclerosis and vascular disease and to investigate possible anti-atherosclerotic effects of the angiotensin II, type 2 (AT2) receptor.

  5. 5. Observations on cerebral amyloid angiopathy and microvascular pathology in Alzheimer's disease and vascular dementia

    University dissertation from Department of Clinical Sciences, Lund University

    Abstract : Dementia is a state of permanent loss of cognitive function, most commonly affecting the elderly. With a rapidly growing aged population, the spectrum of disorders that lead to dementia is exerting an ever-increasing toll on patients, families and society alike. The most common dementing disorders are Alzheimer's disease and vascular dementia. READ MORE
