  1. 1. Natriuretic Peptides and the Microcirkulation in Heart Failure Patients

    Författare :MarieLouise Edvinsson; Lund Medicin; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Heart failure natriuretic peptides BNP cutaneous microcirculation;

    Sammanfattning : The increased prevalence of chronic congestive heart failure (HF) is a tremendous challenge for society. In spite of effective medical treatment for acute HF, better pharmacological treatment for specific neurohormonal intervention and better diagnostic tools, e.g. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Heart failure in primary health care : special emphasis on natriuretic peptides in the elderly

    Författare :Urban Alehagen; Norman Sharpe; Linköpings universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Sammanfattning : Background: This thesis focuses on heart failure among elderly patients in the community who usually are not included in studies on heart failure. The heart failure syndrome is an increasing problem in Western society. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Population-based studies of atrial fibrillation and ischemic stroke

    Författare :John Berntsson; Kardiovaskulär forskning - epidemiologi; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Atrial fibrillation; Ischemic stroke; Biomarker; Stroke; Natriuretic peptides; Vascular endothelial growth factor; Epidemiology; Atrial Fibrillation; Stroke; Ischemic stroke; Natriuretic peptides; Vascular endothelial growth factor; Epidemiology;

    Sammanfattning : AbstractBackground: Atrial fibrillation (AF) is a major risk factor for ischemic stroke and the most common cause of cardioembolic stroke. Early detection of AF and AF subjects at high risk for stroke is therefore important. LÄS MER

  4. 4. New Risk Markers in Atrial Fibrillation

    Författare :Ziad Hijazi; Jonas Oldgren; Lars Wallentin; Agneta Siegbahn; Ola Hammarsten; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; atrial fibrillation; stroke risk; cardiac biomarkers; troponin; natriuretic peptides; NT-proBNP; risk stratification; Cardiology; Kardiologi;

    Sammanfattning : Atrial fibrillation (AF) confers an independent increased risk of stroke and death. The stroke risk is very heterogeneous and current risk stratification models based on clinical variables, such as the CHADS2 and CHA2DS2VASc score, only offer a modest discriminating value. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Heart Disease in Early type 2 Diabetes

    Författare :Martin Magnusson; Malmö Institutionen för kliniska vetenskaper; []
