  2. 2. The Diabetic Foot. Costs, health economic aspects, prevention and quality of life

    Författare :Gunnel Ragnarson Tennvall; Socialepidemiologi; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Social medicine; wound healing; treatment outcome; risk factors; prevention and control; amputation; cost and cost analysis; Socialmedicin; samhällsmedicin;

    Sammanfattning : The overall aims were to investigate the economic consequences of foot complications in diabetic patients, to measure the influence of diabetic foot complications on health-related quality of life (HRQL), and to analyse the cost-effectiveness of interventions to prevent foot ulcers and lower extremity amputations (LEA). The economic consequences of foot ulcers and LEA are large both in a short and a longer perspective. LÄS MER

    Sammanfattning : Femoral amputation is a devastating event. Percutaneous, bone anchored prosthetic systems reduce problems associated with socket suspended prostheses, but the design is inherently vulnerable to infection. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Aspects on intra-arterial thrombolysis for lower limb ischemia

    Författare :Monica Kuoppala; Vaskulära sjukdomar - kliniska studier; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Intra-arterial thrombolysis. Lower limb ischemia. Outcome. Amputation-free survival. Hemorrhage. Risk factors.;

    Sammanfattning : Background: Acute ischemia of the lower limb is a vascular emergency associated with amputation and death. Patients suffering from acute limb ischemia are usually elderly, and multiple comorbidities are often present. Intra-arterial thrombolysis is, perhaps, the most important minimal-invasive treatment option available today. LÄS MER
