1. Manifestations and Survival in Coronary Heart Disease
Sammanfattning : Aim: To investigate how risk factors predict manifestations in coronary heart disease (CHD), and trends in short-term and long-term survival including trends in out-of-hospital mortality. Populations and methods: In the first study 7388 men aged 47 to 55 and free of previous acute myocardial infarction (AMI) or stroke were investigated during 28 years’ follow-up. LÄS MER
2. Prevalence and Prognostic Impact of Periodontal Disease and Conventional Risk Factors in Patients with Stable Coronary Heart Disease
Sammanfattning : The purpose of this thesis was to assess the prevalence and management of established cardiovascular (CV) risk factors and the prevalence and influence of self-reported markers (number of teeth and frequency of gum bleeding) of periodontal disease (PD), a less explored CV risk factor, in patients with stable chronic coronary heart disease (CHD).We studied patients from the global STabilization of Atherosclerotic plaque By Initiation of darapLadIb TherapY (STABILITY) trial (n=15,828), in which patients with stable chronic CHD were randomized to either darapladib or placebo.

3. Coronary Heart Disease and Erectile Dysfunction
Sammanfattning : Coronary heart disease (CHD) is a common condition associated with a high mortality. There is now growing evidence that erectile dysfunction (ED) in men may be a suitable marker of sub-clinical cardiovascular disease, identifying patients at high risk for future CHD. LÄS MER
4. Impact of Risk Factors and Treatment in Coronary Heart Disease
Sammanfattning : Aims: The aim of the present study was to explore how risk factors and medication influence clinical presentation and mortality in coronary heart disease (CHD) and to explain how much of the decrease in CHD mortality in Sweden that could be attributed to medical and surgical treatments, and how much to changes in cardiovascular risk factors. Subjects and methods: We included 781 consecutive patients with a first acute myocardial infarction (AMI) during the period 1994 to 2002, to investigate trends in the use of lipid-lowering treatment, and changes in serum lipids.

5. Psychological distress in coronary heart disease : Risk indicators, treatment and cardiovascular prognosis
Sammanfattning : The aims of this thesis were to: (1) explore factors associated with emotional distress; (2) investigate psychosocial stress as a risk factor for cardiovascular (CV) morbidity in patients with coronary heart disease (CHD); (3) investigate the impact of group-based stress management on psychological outcomes, and if that mediates risk of CV events; and (4) evaluate an internet-based cognitive behavioral therapy (iCBT) for emotional distress in patients with a recent myocardial infarction (MI).In Study I, data from the national registry SWEDEHEART on 27,267 MI patients < 75 years was used.
