  1. 1. Ultrasound measurements of subclinical carotid atherosclerosis : methodological and clinical studies

    Författare :Emma Nyman; Christer Grönlund; Ulf Näslund; Isabel Gonçalves; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; atherosclerosis; ultrasound; carotid artery; carotid intima media thickness; carotid plaque; reproducibility; intervention; echogenicity; cardiovascular disease; hjärt- och kärlforskning;

    Sammanfattning : Ultrasound measurements of subclinical carotid atherosclerosis have been evaluated as an additional parameter in risk evaluation of cardiovascular diseases (CVD). The overall aim of this thesis was to increase knowledge regarding ultrasound measurements of subclinical carotid atherosclerosis. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Carotid stenosis

    Författare :Elias Johansson; Per Wester; Conny Arnerlöv; Arne Lindgren; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Carotid stenosis; Risk; Recurrence; Stroke; TIA; Near-occlusion; Carotid Endarterectomy; Delay; Panoramic Radiographs; Cardiovascular medicine; Kardiovaskulär medicin; Neurology; Neurologi; Internal Medicine; invärtesmedicin; neurologi; Neurology; odontologi; Odontology;

    Sammanfattning : Carotid stenosis is one of several causes of ischemic stroke and entails a high risk of ischemic stroke recurrence. Removal of a carotid stenosis by carotid endarterectomy results in a risk reduction for ischemic stroke, but the magnitude of risk reduction depends on several factors. LÄS MER

  3. 3. 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

  4. 4. 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

  5. 5. Vascular ultrasound for the assessment of carotid atherosclerosis

    Författare :Davide Vanoli; Per Lindqvist; Christine Kremer; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Ultrasound; Plaque; IMT; Atherosclerosis; CEUS; Carotid vessels; cardiovascular disease; hjärt- och kärlforskning;

    Sammanfattning : Background: Atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (CVD) is a common cause for mortality globally, and is expected to remain the single leading cause of death as the global population ages and as life expectancy increases.Cardiovascular screening models have been developed, and continue to be developed, to identify individuals at high-risk of CVD.
