  1. 1. Carotid Artery Stenosis : Surgical Aspects

    Författare :Björn Kragsterman; Håkan Pärsson; David Bergqvist; Thomas Mätzsch; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :Surgery; carotid endarterectomy; carotid artery stenosis; carotid clamping; cerebral ischaemia; Kirurgi;

    Sammanfattning : Randomised controlled trials (RCT) have demonstrated a net benefit of carotid endarterectomy (CEA) in stroke prevention for patients with severe carotid artery stenosis as compared to best medical treatment. Results in routine clinical practice must not be inferior to those in the RCTs. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Carotid artery disease : plaque features and vulnerability

    Författare :Fisnik Jashari; Michael Henein; Per Wester; Christine Kremer; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Carotid atherosclerosis; ultrasound; plaque features; echogenicity; calcification; surface plaque irregularities; subclinical atherosclerosis; cerebrovascular symptoms; Cardiology; kardiologi; cardiovascular disease; hjärt- och kärlforskning;

    Sammanfattning : Background: Atherosclerosis is an important cause of stroke. Ultrasound offers the convenience of real-time and detailed assessment of carotid plaque features as well as arterial wall thickening and composition. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Screening for asymptomatic carotid atherosclerosis

    Författare :Dominika Högberg; Anders Wanhainen; Hans-Henning Eckstein; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :Carotid stenosis; carotid atherosclerosis; screening; cost-effectiveness; natural history; carotid ultrasound; Surgery; Kirurgi;

    Sammanfattning : Ischemic stroke is the most common cause of handicap in adults and the third most common cause of death in Sweden. Internal carotid artery atherosclerosis is an important cause and accounts for 20% of ischemic strokes. Screening for carotid atherosclerosis has been debated over the past two decades. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Clinical Studies on Dark Adaptation: with Particular Reference to Carotid Artery Disease

    Författare :Ulf Havelius; Oftalmologi (Malmö); []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; polycythemia; photoreceptors; phlebotomy; ocular blood flow; headache; dilation lag; dark adaptometry; dark adaptation; color Doppler imaging; carotid artery stenosis; carotid artery disease; carotid endarterectomy; pupil; pupillometry; retinal blood flow; Ophtalmology; Oftalmologi;

    Sammanfattning : Purpose: To study dark adaptation in patients with symptomatic carotid artery disease or polycythemia before and after treatment. This necessitated determinations of pupillary changes as such may influence the findings. To determine whether changes in the retinal blood flow in light and darkness occur in healthy humans.

  5. 5. Symptomatic Carotid Stenosis - optimal timing of surgical treatment

    Författare :Sofia Strömberg; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; carotid endarterectomy; carotid artery stenosis; stroke; transient ischemic attack; ocular transient ischemic attack;

    Sammanfattning : Abstract In patients with symptomatic carotid artery stenosis is convincing evidence that carotid endarterectomy (CEA) confers maximum benefit if performed within 14 days from index event. Patients with TIA or minor stroke have an increased risk of early recurrent stroke in the first weeks after the index event, then declining over months. LÄS MER
