  1. 1. Secundum atrial septal defect in the adult. Clinical, haemodynamic and electrophysiological aspects

    Författare :Ulf Thilén; Kardiologi; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MRI; clinical outcome; atrial fibrillation; Atrial septal defect; atrial conduction; remodelling.;

    Sammanfattning : Atrial septal defect (ASD) is the most common congenital heart malformation diagnosed in adult life. In this thesis important clinical, haemodynamic and electrophysiological aspects of ASD in the adult are explored. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Characterisation of Atrial Electrophysiology with respect to Atrial Fibrillation - A Non-Invasive Approach

    Författare :Fredrik Holmqvist; Kardiologi; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Electrocardiography; Atrial fibrillation; Human; Conduction; Signal; Spectral analysis; P wave morphology; Atrial remodelling; Cardiovascular system; Kardiovaskulära systemet;

    Sammanfattning : Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common form of cardiac arrhythmia encountered in clinical practice, accounting. Recent findings highlight the need for better characterisation of the arrhythmia in each patient, in order to improve patient treatment. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Cellular electrophysiological modulation in chronic atrial fibrillation - Studies with magnesium and GIK solution

    Författare :Max Ingemansson; Lunds universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Action potential duration; Atrial cycle length; Atrial remodelling; Autonomic nervous system; AV-nodal; Conduction velocity; GIK; Magnesium; Resting membrane potential.; Refractoriness; Atrial fibrillation; Cardiovascular system; Kardiovaskulära systemet;

    Sammanfattning : Although chronic atrial fibrillation (CAF) is the most common sustained cardiac arrhythmia in man, the mechanisms involved in its progressive course are still not fully understood. Recent studies have verified an electrical remodelling of the atrial myocardium that may be responsible for the electrophysiological disturbances known to exist in the fibrillating atria. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Atrial function and loading conditions in athletes

    Författare :Flavio D'Ascenzi; Michael Henein; Sergio Mondillo; Roxy Senior; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; athlete s heart; training; exercise; speckle-tracking echocardiography; atrial strain; atrial deformation; Cardiology; kardiologi;

    Sammanfattning : Intensive training is associated with hemodynamic changes that typically induce an enlargement of cardiac chamber. Despite LA dilatation in athletes has been interpreted as a benign adaptation, little evidence is available. LÄS MER

  5. 5. The important role of left atrial function parameters in clinical practice

    Författare :Ibadete Bytyci; Michael Y. Henein; Roxy Senior; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Left atrial function; Left atrial compliance; left atrial stiffness; Clinical practice; kardiologi; Cardiology;

    Sammanfattning : The aim of this thesis is to evaluate the role of left atrial function in clinical practice based on the following studies:1)    Determining left atrial (LA) structure and myocardial function measurements that predict pulmonary capillary wedge pressure (PCWP).2)    Identifying predictors of exercise capacity in patients with HFpEF and right ventricle (RV) dysfunction.
