Sammanfattning : Abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) is a common disease that is life threatening when rupture occurs. The aims of this thesis were to study (I) the long-term survival after AAA repair, (II) the cost of repair with open (OR) and endovascular (EVAR) technique, (III) the effect of different statistical methods on interpretation of cost data, (IV) the prevalence of the disease among patients with suspected arterial disease referred to the vascular laboratory, and (V) the cost-effectiveness of selective high-risk screening.

Sammanfattning : The use of endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) in the treatment of abdominal aortic aneurysms has advanced from a premature characterization as a “failed experiment” in early 2000 to the predominant modern method of treatment. Technology has accommodated initial shortcomings, but it has also led to expansions in the treatment of ruptured aneurysms and complex aortic pathologies. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Endovascular aortic aneurysm repair (EVAR) is the procedure of choice in most patients with abdominal aortic aneurysm. The drawbacks of EVAR are a higher rate of complications and frequent need for reinterventions, requiring regular postoperative follow-up. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Trauma is a leading cause of death worldwide and it reduces years of productive life and leads to disability. Effective trauma care relies on triage, which aims to ration the use of fine resources to patients with the greatest needs. LÄS MER
5. Resuscitative endovascular balloon occlusion of the aorta : Physiology and clinical aspects of an emerging technique
Sammanfattning : Traumatic hemorrhagic shock is a major cause of death worldwide. Patients enter the fatal triad of hypothermia, acidosis and coagulopathy and die quickly due to cardiovascular collapse. Ideally, procedures should be performed at the injury scene to prevent this fatal event. LÄS MER
