  1. 1. T cell Function in Patients with Dilated Cardiomyopathy

    Författare :Erika Lindberg; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :cardiomyopathy; lymphocytes; cytokines; autoimmunity; infection;

    Sammanfattning : Dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) is a heart muscle disease characterized by dilatation of one or both ventricles together with decreased systolic function. Its etiology is still largely unknown. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy in Northern Sweden : with special emphasis on molecular genetics

    Författare :Stellan Mörner; Åke Hjalmarson; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy; genetics; autonomic nervous system; familial amyloid polyneuropathy; echocardiography; Epidemiology; epidemiologi;

    Sammanfattning : Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) is a heterogeneous, often familial disease, characterized by cardiac hypertrophy, predominantly affecting the interventricular septum. To date, no study has systematically analysed the genetic and phenotypic aspects of the disease in a Swedish population. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Early Cardiovascular Changes of Familial Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy in the Young

SCD.; advanced ECG; CMR; Tissue Doppler; Echocardiography; Microcirculation; LaserDoppler; Athletes heart; HCM; hypertrophic cardiomyopathy; Familial hypertrophic cardiomyopathy;

    Sammanfattning : Familial hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) is the most common inherited heart disease, transmitted in an autosomal dominant fashion, i.e. 50% risk for transmission of the disease-causing mutation to each child of the affected family. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Body mass index and mental health in young people - predictors of early heart failure and cardiomyopathy

    Författare :Josefina Robertson; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Heart failure; Cardiomyopathy; Overweight; Obesity; Mental disorder; Stress resilience; Young people; Population;

    Sammanfattning : Heart failure among young people is rare, but in contrast to decreasing incidence rates overall, recent studies have found increasing rates among the young over the last decades. Concomitantly, cardiomyopathies, which is a common underlying condition to heart failure at a young age, have more than doubled in Sweden for unknown reasons. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Arrhythmogenic Right Ventricular Cardiomyopathy : Genetic and Electrocardiographic Aspects on Risk of Ventricular Arrhythmia and Diagnosis

    Författare :Anneli Svensson; Cecilia Gunnarsson; Pyotr Platonov; Perry M. Elliott; Linköpings universitet; []

    Sammanfattning : Introduction: ARVC (Arrhythmogenic Right Ventricular Cardiomyopathy) is a heritable rare disease of the heart muscle, primarily affecting the right ventricle, that may cause arrhythmias and heart failure.Aim: The overall aim of this thesis was to study various aspects of genetic information and electrocardiography (ECG), for their use in diagnosis and risk evaluation in ARVC.
