  1. 1. 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

  2. 2. 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

  3. 3. Longitudinal Common Carotid Artery Wall Motion - mechanistic, prognostic and translational studies

    Författare :Sara Svedlund; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :carotid artery; longitudinal wall motion; ultrasound; velocity vector imaging; risk factor;

    Sammanfattning : The longitudinal arterial movement of the common carotid artery (CCA) has been less investigated during the past compared to the radial movement. This is probably due to lack of an adequate measuring method. Velocity vector ultrasound imaging (VVI) now enables assessment of the longitudinal movement. LÄS MER

  4. 4. The role of duplex scanning in the management of carotid artery disease

    Författare :Karl Logason; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Surgery; Duplex scanning; Doppler spectral analysis; duplex criteria; Doppler angle of insonation; carotid artery stenosis; carotid endarterectomy; spontaneous cervical artery dissection; Kirurgi; Surgery; Kirurgi; Surgery; kirurgi;

    Sammanfattning : Extracranial carotid artery disease, mainly due to atherosclerosis, is a common cause of stroke. The risk for future stroke can be reduced in selected patients by carotid endarterectomy (CEA). Duplex scanning has been increasingly used for diagnosis of carotid artery disease. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Calcified carotid artery atheromas in panoramic radiographs : diagnostic reliability and association to cardiovascular disease, diabetes and periodontitis

    Författare :Nils Gustafsson; Eva Levring Jäghagen; Jan Ahlqvist; Ulf Näslund; Per Wester; Annika Ekestubbe; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Panoramic radiographs; cardiovascular disease; carotid artery atheromas; diabetes mellitus; oral health; periodontitis; diagnostic accuracy; myocardial infraction; odontologi; Odontology;

    Sammanfattning : Objective: Incidental findings of Calcified Carotid Artery Atheromas (CCAA) on Panoramic Radiographs (PRs) of the jaws can be a risk marker for cardiovascular disease. The objectives for the thesis were to investigate the association between CCAA and 1) Myocardial Infarction (MI), 2) periodontitis, 3) diabetes and 4) estimated cardiovascular risk. LÄS MER
