  1. 1. Warfarin treatment quality in stroke prevention

    Detta är en avhandling från Umeå : Umeå University

    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Anticoagulation; atrial fibrillation; complications; international normalized ratio INR variability; persistence; stroke; time in therapeutic range TTR ; treatment quality; warfarin; cardiovascular disease; hjärt- och kärlforskning;

    Sammanfattning : BackgroundIschemic stroke is a serious condition often associated to presence of atrial fibrillation (AF). Use of anticoagulants for AF patients greatly reduces the risk of stroke. Warfarin is the most commonly used anticoagulant in Sweden. The aim of this thesis was to study the impact of warfarin treatment quality in Swedish stroke prevention. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Anticoagulation treatment in patients with a mechanical heart valve

    Detta är en avhandling från Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Författare :Bartosz Grzymala-Lubanski; Umeå universitet.; [2016]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Mechanical heart valve; anticoagulation; warfarin; Time in Therapeutic Range TTR ; INR variability;

    Sammanfattning : BackgroundEvery year about 2,500 patients in Sweden undergo surgery for heart valve disease, primarily in the aortic valve.  In contrast to the mitral valve, which can be repaired in 70% of the cases, the aortic valve is normally replaced by a mechanical or biological prosthesis.

  3. 3. Oral anticoagulation treatment in atrial fibrillation - To bleed or not to bleed, that is the question

    Detta är en avhandling från Department of Clinical Sciences, Lund University

    Författare :Mattias Wieloch; [2011]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; anticoagulation; atrial fibrillation; hemorrhage; kidney; warfarin; epidemiology; stroke;

    Sammanfattning : Background: Oral antigoagulation treatment (OAT) with warfarin have a narrow therapeutic window and patients exhibit a highly variable doseresponse that is attributable to genetic, disease-related,and environmental factors as well as prescription and nonprescription drugs, dietary vitamin K and alcohol. The effect of warfarin treatement on blood coagulation is measured using international normalized ratio (INR). LÄS MER

  4. 4. Oral anticoagulation and stroke risk

    Detta är en avhandling från Umeå : Umeå University

    Författare :Vilhelm Sjögren; Umeå universitet.; [2017]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Stroke; warfarin; atrial fibrillation; dabigatran; rivaroxaban; apixaban; low-molecular-weight heparin; bridging;

    Sammanfattning : Background: The risk of ischaemic stroke in patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) and mechanical heart valve (MHV) prostheses can be reduced by oral anticoagulation (OAC), which increases the risk of serious bleeding. The aims of this thesis were [1] to find out how effective and safe warfarin is where treatment quality is high, i.e. LÄS MER
