  1. 1. Left Ventricular Function in Elderly Men Metabolic, Hormonal, Genetic and Prognostic Implications

    Detta är en avhandling från Uppsala : Tryck och medier

    Författare :Johan Ärnlöv; Uppsala universitet.; [2002]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Medicine; echocardiography; heart failure; left ventricular function; genetics; mortality; insulin sensitivity; natriuretic peptides; Medicin; MEDICINE Dermatology and venerology; clinical genetics; internal medicine; MEDICIN Dermatologi och venerologi; klinisk genetik; invärtesmedicin; Geriatrics; geriatrik;

    Sammanfattning : Heart failure and left ventricular dysfunction are major causes of morbidity and mortality. In this thesis, metabolic, hormonal, genetic and prognostic aspects of echocardiographically determined left ventricular function were investigated in a fairly large longitudinal population-based study of men.

  2. 2. Ventricular rotation and the rotation axis a new concept in cardiac function

    Detta är en avhandling från Umeå : Umeå university

    Författare :Ulf Gustafsson; Umeå universitet.; [2010]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Left ventricular function; right ventricular function; rotation; twist; rotation axis; transition plane; ischemia; speckle tracking echocardiography; MEDICINE Dermatology and venerology; clinical genetics; internal medicine Internal medicine Cardiology; MEDICIN Dermatologi och venerologi; klinisk genetik; invärtesmedicin Invärtesmedicin Kardiologi; Cardiology; kardiologi;

    Sammanfattning : Background: The twisting motion of the left ventricle (LV), with clockwise rotation at the base and counter clockwise rotation at the apex during systole, is a vital part of LV function. Even though LV rotation has been studied for decades, the rotation pattern has not been described in detail. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Echocardiographic measurements at Takotsubo cardiomyopathy transient left ventricular dysfunction

    Detta är en avhandling från Örebro : Örebro university

    Författare :Micael Waldenborg; Örebro universitet.; [2014]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Echocardiography; takotsubo; annulus motion; cardiac autonomic function; broken heart; diastolic; ventricular mass; concentric wall motion; Medicine; Medicin; Biomedicin; Biomedicine;

    Sammanfattning : Takotsubo cardiomyopathy (TTC) is a disease characterized by transient left ventricular (LV) dysfunction and typical wall motion abnormalities in apical parts, without obvious signs of coronary influence. Due to its elusive natural cause and the lack of clarified pathology, further studies are needed. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Surgical treatment in chronic aortic regurgitation Timing, results, prognosis and left ventricular function

    Detta är en avhandling från Institutionen för medicin och hälsa

    Författare :Éva Tamás; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; Östergötlands Läns Landsting.; [2008]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Aortic regurgitation; left ventricular function; exercise; physical capacity; echocardiography; MEDICINE Surgery Surgical research Thoracic surgery; MEDICIN Kirurgi Kirurgisk forskning Thoraxkirurgi;

    Sammanfattning : Chronic aortic regurgitation (AR) of varying degree affects 13% of men and 8.5% of women. In persons with severe AR, the expected length of life and its quality are influenced. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Ventricular Long Axis Function: Amplitudes and Timings Echocardiographic Studies in Health and Disease

    Detta är en avhandling från Institutionen för medicin och hälsa

    Författare :Frederick Bukachi; Umeå universitet.; [2004]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Medicine; Echocardiography; Doppler Tissue Imaging; Ageing; coronary disease; left ventricular function; atrial contraction; electromechanical function; coronary angioplasty.; Medicin; MEDICINE Dermatology and venerology; clinical genetics; internal medicine; MEDICIN Dermatologi och venerologi; klinisk genetik; invärtesmedicin; kardiologi; Cardiology;

    Sammanfattning : Background: The ageing process not only increases the risk of coronary artery disease (CAD) but also complicates its diagnosis and treatment. It is therefore important to understand the newer concepts of cardiovascular ageing physiology as well as methods of predicting the outcomes of therapeutic options available for the elderly with severe CAD.
