  1. 6. Vascular repair mechanisms : Experimental, physiological and clinical studies

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Molecular Medicine and Surgery

    Author : Anton Razuvajev; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2009]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of global mortality and physical disability mainly due to the complications of atherothrombosis such as myocardial infarction or stroke. Surgical treatment directed to prevent this conditions is limited by the extensive healing response, intimal hyperplasia. READ MORE

  2. 7. Analysis of the vascular sounds of the arteriovenous fistula

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Molecular Medicine and Surgery

    Author : Marco Munguia Mena; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2011]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY;

    Abstract : This licentiate thesis is in the field of biomedical signal processing with main focus on processing of the vascular sounds of the hemodialysis vascular access in patient undergoing hemodialysis. The first paper proposes a feature extraction method based on principal component analysis (PCA) for acoustic detection of venous stenosis. READ MORE

  3. 8. Phenotypic modulation of vascular smooth muscle in organ culture

    University dissertation from BMC Biomedical Centre, Lund University

    Author : Anders Lindqvist; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2001]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; smooth muscle; proliferation; PDGF; Physiology; energy metabolism; calcium; Fysiologi;

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Människans blod cirkulerar runt i kroppen genom dess många blodkärl. Blodkärlen är till största del uppbyggda av två slags celler; endotelceller och glatta muskelceller. Endotelcellerna är placerade innanför de glatta muskelcellerna i blodkärlet och deras uppgift är att forma en barriär mot blodet. READ MORE

  4. 9. Vascular Wall Responses to Bypass Grafting - Studies in Mice

    University dissertation from BMC Biomedical Centre, Lund University

    Author : Klas Österberg; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2008]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Intimal hyperplasia; graft stenosis; smooth muscle cells; mice; cellular recruitment;

    Abstract : Abstract Vein grafts are frequently used in bypass surgery for treatment of coronary artery disease and lower limb ischemia. Unfortunately the long-term patency is impaired by vein graft stenoses due to intimal hyperplasia (IH). It is assumed that exaggerated intimal thickening is initiated by vessel wall injuries or local flow disturbances. READ MORE

  5. 10. Molecular Mechanisms in Vascular Endothelin B Receptor Up-Regulation

    University dissertation from Erik Uddman, BMC A13, 221 84, Lund

    Author : Erik Uddman; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2003]

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Kardiovaskulära sjukdomar står för en stor del av västvärldens sjuklighet och dödlighet. Dessa sjukdomar kännetecknas av förändringar i det kardiovaskulära systemets funktion, vilket kan leda till ökat blodtryck och förträngning av blodkärlen. READ MORE
