  1. 1. Thoracic Aortic Surgery : Epidemiology, Outcomes, and Prevention of Cerebral Complications

    Författare :Christian Olsson; Stefan Thelin; Jan van der Linden; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :Surgery; Aorta; Thoracic; Aortic aneurysms; Aortic disease; Cardiovascular surgical procedures; Epidemiology; Registries; Treatment outcome; Survival analysis; Cerebral infarction; Near-infrared spectroscopy; Quality of life; Perfusion; Kirurgi;

    Sammanfattning : The mortality of thoracic aortic diseases (mainly aneurysms and dissections) is high, even with surgical treatment. Epidemiology and long-term outcomes are incompletely investigated. Stroke is a major complication contributing to mortality, morbidity, and possibly to reduced quality of life. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Observations on cerebral amyloid angiopathy and microvascular pathology in Alzheimer's disease and vascular dementia

    Författare :Mattias Haglund; Tumörmikromiljö; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Patologi allmän ; pathological anatomy; General pathology; Vascular dementia; Alzheimer s disease; Cerebral infarction; Locus ceruleus; White matter; Microvasculature; Cerebrovascular disease; patologisk anatomi; Ischemia; Cerebral amyloid angiopathy;

    Sammanfattning : Dementia is a state of permanent loss of cognitive function, most commonly affecting the elderly. With a rapidly growing aged population, the spectrum of disorders that lead to dementia is exerting an ever-increasing toll on patients, families and society alike. The most common dementing disorders are Alzheimer's disease and vascular dementia. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Left ventricular thrombus and stroke after acute myocardial infarction

    Författare :Thomas Mooe; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; myocardial infarction; thrombolytic therapy; left ventricular thrombosis; risk factors; cerebral embolism and thrombosis;

    Sammanfattning : A left ventricular thrombus develops in approximately 40% of patients following an anterior myocardial infarction. Embolization from these thrombi has been regarded as the most important cause of stroke following a myocardial infarction. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Hyperglycemia and Focal Brain Ischemia : Clinical and Experimental Studies

    Författare :Nasim Farrokhnia; Andreas Terént; Fredrik Lennmyr; Elisabeth Björk; Henrik Hagberg; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; Internal medicine; cerebrovascular disorders; diabetes mellitus; hyperglycemia; infarction; middle cerebral artery; ischemia; mitogen-activated protein kinases; mortality; rats; reactive oxygen species; reperfusion; signal transduction; therapeutics; Invärtesmedicin; Internal medicine; Invärtesmedicin;

    Sammanfattning : Diabetes is a major risk factor for ischemic stroke and is associated with increased mortality. Additionally, hyperglycemia, a common complication in acute stroke, is associated with poor outcome. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Astrocyte metabolism following focal cerebral ischemia

    Författare :Anna E Thoren; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :Astrocyte; metabolism; focal cerebral ischemia; reperfusion; infarct; [1-14C]acetate; [U-14C]glucose; glutamine; glutamate; ATP; ADP; lactate; MCT4; immunogold cytochemistry;

    Sammanfattning : Stroke is one of the leading causes of disability and death. Most often, stroke results from blockage of an artery in the brain leading to tissue infarction within the perfusion territory of the affected vessel. LÄS MER
