Sammanfattning : Introduction: Open repair of the aorta carries a high risk for morbidity and mortality especially in the elderly population and in patients unfit for major surgery. Endovascular aortic repair is safe, durable and effective when there is adequate proximal and distal sealing zone for the aortic stent graft. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Treatment of abdominal aortic aneurysms has shifted rapidly from open surgery to minimally invasive endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR). However, anatomical limitations such as short or absent proximal sealing neck and poor access vessels exclude up to 50% of patients. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Background: Intravenous thrombolysis is effective in patients with minor stroke but not in patients with moderate or major stroke due to large vessel occlusion. Endovascular stroke treatment offers a high recanalization rate, which is associated with favorable neurological outcome. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Popliteal aneurysms (PA) are limb threatening, since the aneurysm thrombose and emboli from the aneurysm sac occlude the distal vessels, resulting in chronic or acute limb ischaemia. Open surgical repair (OSR) has been challenged by endovascular repair (ER), a minimal invasive technique. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : This thesis is based on four studies where the overall aim was to explore and describe experiences of being diagnosed with Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm (AAA), and if experiences of care and treatment, affect quality of life and health. Two of the studies were qualitative, where a phenomenological hermeneutic and a hermeneutic method of interpretation and analysis were used. LÄS MER
