  1. 1. Acute, ambulatory and central blood pressure measurements in diabetes

    Författare :Magnus Wijkman; Fredrik Nyström; Carl Johan Östgren; Toste Länne; Jan Östergren; Linköpings universitet; []
    Nyckelord :Ambulatory blood pressure; Arterial stiffness; Central blood pressure; Diabetes; Hypertension.;

    Sammanfattning : Background: In patients with diabetes, high blood pressure is an established risk factor for cardiovascular disease. The aim of this thesis was to explore the associations between blood pressure levels measured with different techniques and during different circumstances, and the degree of cardiovascular organ damage and subsequent prognosis in patients with diabetes.

  2. 2. High Blood Pressure in Children with Hydronephrosis

    Författare :Ammar Nadhom Farman Al-Mashhadi; Mattias Carlström; Gundela Holmdahl; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Blood pressure; hydronephrosis; hypertension; ambulatory blood pressure monitoring; nitric oxide; oxidative stress; pelvo-ureteric junction obstruction.; Barnkirurgi; Pediatric Surgery;

    Sammanfattning : The most common cause of secondary hypertension is intrinsic renal disease, but little is known about the influence of hydronephrosis on blood pressure. In this thesis, the risk of development of hypertension in children with hydronephrosis was studied. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Cerebral blood flow and intracranial pulsatility studied with MRI : measurement, physiological and pathophysiological aspects

    Författare :Anders Wåhlin; Anders Eklund; Jan Malm; Richard Birgander; William G Bradley; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Arterial Pulsatility; cerebrospinal fluid; cerebral blood flow; venous flow; intracranial pressure; pulse pressure; dementia; hippocampus; multiple sclerosis; magnetic resonance imaging; radiofysik; radiation physics;

    Sammanfattning : During each cardiac cycle pulsatile arterial blood inflates the vascular bed of the brain, forcing cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) and venous blood out of the cranium. Excessive arterial pulsatility may be part of a harmful mechanism causing cognitive decline among elderly. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Cerebral Blood Flow and Cognition. Clinical studies on Dementia and Cognitive Decline

    Författare :Arkadiusz Siennicki-Lantz; Geriatrik; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Gerontology; Gerontologi; vascular risk factors; carotid ultrasound; peripheral arterial disease; orthostatic hypotension; blood pressure; ageing; SPECT; cerebral blood flow; cognition; Dementia; Alzheimer’s disease;

    Sammanfattning : The importance of early detection of brain changes during ageing has been recognised. Single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) is a method used for estimation of cerebral blood flow (CBF) in clinical work and in research. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Blood pressure in atrial fibrillation

    Författare :Joakim Olbers; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Sammanfattning : Introduction: Hypertension is a leading risk factor for cardiovascular morbidity and premature death. Prevalence of hypertension in the adult population in Sweden has been estimated to 27%. Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most prevalent sustained arrhythmia of clinical relevance with an estimated prevalence of at least 2.9% among adults in Sweden. LÄS MER
