    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Surgery; aortic atherosclerosis; aortic cannulation; aortic cross-clamp; cardiac surgery; cerebral protection; cerebrovascular accidents; epiaortic ultrasound; intra-aortic filter; Kirurgi; Surgery; Kirurgi; Thoracic and Cardivascular Suregery; kirurgi; särskilt thoraxkirurgi;

    Sammanfattning : Background: Despite the successful development in cardiac surgery, cerebrovascular accidents (CVA) remain a devastating complication. Aortic atherosclerosis has been identified as a major risk factor for CVA. 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. Comorbidity and vascular risk factors  associated with idiopathic normal pressure hydrocephalus : the INPH-CRasH Study

    Författare :Hanna Israelsson Larsen; Jan Malm; Anders Eklund; Norman Relkin; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; hydrocephalus; normal pressure; vascular disease; vascular risk factors; elderly; depression; case control study; epidemiology; dementia; vascular dementia; small vessel disease; cerebrovascular disease; transient ischemic attack; Neurology; neurologi;

    Sammanfattning : Idiopathic normal pressure hydrocephalus (INPH) is a dementia treatable by insertion of a cerebrospinal fluid shunt. It has been suggested that INPH has similar pathophysiological mechanisms as cerebrovascular disease, but the vascular risk factor (VRF) profile of INPH patients has not been assessed using a modern epidemiological approach.

  4. 4. Cerebral complications in infective endocarditis

    Författare :Ulrika Snygg-Martin; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :infective endocarditis IE ; cerebral embolism; cerebrovascular complications; antiplatelet therapy; anticoagulation; warfarin; vegetation; Staphylococcus aureus; mortality;

    Sammanfattning : Infective endocarditis (IE) is a life-threatening disease. Cerebral embolization complicates the course in 10-40% of IE episodes. Aims of study were to investigate the frequency of cerebrovascular complications (CVC) in left-sided IE and the influence of protective and risk factors with focus on antiplatelet and anticoagulant therapy.

  5. 5. Registry-based studies of return to work after stroke - part of the work after stroke study (WASS)

    Författare :Emma Westerlind; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Stroke; Return to work; Working age; Rehabilitation; Cerebrovascular diseases; Ischemic stroke; Intracerebral haemorrhage; Registries;

    Sammanfattning : Objectives. Stroke is one of the most common diseases and a main cause of disability both globally and in Sweden. Even though the risk increases with older age, stroke in the younger population is increasing and a substantial part of those who suffer from stroke are at working age. LÄS MER
