  1. 1. Platelet Inhibition, Revascularization, and Risk Prediction in Non-ST-elevation Acute Coronary Syndromes

    Författare :Daniel Lindholm; Stefan James; Christoph Varenhorst; James de Lemos; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; coronary artery disease; myocardial infarction; acute coronary syndrome; non-ST-elevation acute coronary syndrome; P2Y12 inhibitors; ticagrelor; biomarkers; revascularization; percutaneous coronary intervention; risk prediction; Cardiology; Kardiologi;

    Sammanfattning : Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death worldwide and ischemic heart disease is the most common manifestation. Despite improved outcomes during the last decades, patients with acute coronary syndromes (ACS) are still at substantial risk of recurrent ischemic events and mortality. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Biomarkers of Renal Function in Acute Coronary Syndromes

    Författare :Axel Åkerblom; Stefan James; Lars Wallentin; Torbjörn Omland; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; cystatin C; glomerular filtration rate; GFR; creatinine; acute coronary syndrome; ACS; kidney; renal; mortality; death; myocardial infarction; Cardiology; Kardiologi; Medicin; Medicine; Internal Medicine; Internmedicin;

    Sammanfattning : The thesis aimed to investigate cystatin C and creatinine-based estimates of glomerular filtration rate (eGFR), both at admission and during follow-up, on the combined endpoint of cardiovascular death and myocardial infarction in patients with acute coronary syndrome (ACS). We also evaluated two cystatin C assays and assessed genetic determinants of cystatin C concentrations. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Acute Coronary Syndromes. Characteristics, management and prognosis in relation to gender and type of syndrome

    Författare :Elisabeth Perers; Göteborgs universitet; []
    Nyckelord :Acute coronary syndromes; gender; age; treatment; quality of life; outcome;

    Sammanfattning : ABSTRACT Background: Acute coronary syndromes (ACS) represent a wide spectrum of conditions from ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) to unstable angina pectoris (UAP). Randomized trials tend to focus on ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) or non-ST-elevation ACS, and consequently studies providing data on the entire condition are relatively scarce, especially with information including long-term follow-up.

  4. 4. Cost-effectiveness and Value of Further Research of Treatment Strategies for Cardiovascular Disease

    Författare :Martin Henriksson; Per Carlsson; Fredrik Lundgren; Mark Scupher; Hans Severens; Linköpings universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Economic evaluation; decision-analytic modelling; prioritising research; carotid endarterectomy; abdominal aortic aneurysm; screening; non-ST-elevation acute coronary syndrome; early intervention; Health and medical services in society; Hälso- och sjukvård i samhället;

    Sammanfattning : Economic evaluations provide a tool to estimate costs and health consequences of competing medical technologies, ultimately to aid decision makers when deciding which medical technologies should be funded from available resources. Such decisions inevitably need to be taken under uncertainty and it is not clear how to approach them in health care decision-making. LÄS MER

    Nyckelord :;

    Sammanfattning : Background. Patients with acute coronary syndrome (ACS) face a high risk of lethal complications, both during the hospital course and after discharge. LÄS MER
