  1. 1. Transesophageal Echocardiography in Patients Undergoing Elective Coronary Artery Bypass Surgery

    Författare :Ingrid Palmgren; Russell Anderson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Anaesthesiology and intensive care; transesophageal echocardiography; low-dose dobutamine; viability; coronary artery bypass; Anestesiologi och intensivvård; Anaesthetics and intensive care; Anestesiologi och intensivvård; anestesiologi; Anaesthesiology;

    Sammanfattning : Transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) has become a useful tool in monitoring the heart in patients during open-heart surgery. This study was undertaken to evaluate whether it is feasible to use TEE to assess left ventricular myocardial viability in anesthetized patients scheduled for coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG).

  2. 2. Importance of cardiac reserve for evaluation and prediction of cardiac function and morbidity assessed by low-dose dobutamine stress echocardiography

    Författare :Margareta Scharin Täng; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :Stress echocardiography; Heart failure; Beta-1-adrenoceptor; Cardiac reserve;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis aimed to evaluate the cardiac reserves capacity to be used to predict treatment effects, sub clinical heart disease and to evaluate b1-adrenoceptor (AR) gene polymorphism (Ser49Gly). Studies were performed in patients with dilated cardiomyopathy, in rats (young, healthy, diabetic and hypertensive), in mice (immunized against the ?1AR) and in heart-transplanted patients. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Acute myocardial infarction : early diagnosis and the prognostic value of ECG and echocardiography

    Författare :Josephine Muhrbeck; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []

    Sammanfattning : Introduction Acute myocardial infarction (AMI) is a main cause of death. Despite vast improvements in management and treatment strategies over the past decades, morbidity and mortality after an AMI remains high. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Risk assessment in patients with acute myocardial infarction treated with thrombolysis

    Författare :Bassem Abdel Samad; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; echocardiography; exercise stress test; heart rate variability; Holter recording; low-dose dobutamine echocardiography; myocardial infarction; myocardial perfusion scintigraphy; myocardial viability; prognosis; thrombolysis.;

    Sammanfattning : Risk stratification in patients with acute myocardial infarction is essential for guiding the clinical decision concerning management. Thrombolytic therapy and other new management policies have led to a significant reduction in mortality from myocardial infarction. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Electromechanical effects and optimization modalities of cardiac resynchronization therapy

    Författare :Cinzia Valzania; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; Cardiac resynchronization therapy; coronary blood flow; dyssynchrony; echocardiography; exercise; heart failure; hemodynamics; intracardiac electrogram; intracardiac impedance; optimization;

    Sammanfattning : Background and aims Heart failure is a major health care problem, with high morbidity and mortality rates. In recent years, cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) has become an established additive treatment for patients with advanced heart failure, left ventricular (LV) dysfunction, and wide QRS complex.
