  1. 1. Posture and brain function in dementia. A study with special reference to orthostatic hypotension

    Författare :Ulla Passant; Sektion IV; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; falls and fractures.; white matter disease; hypoperfusion; frontal lobes; regional cerebral blood flow; blood pressure; orthostatic hypotension; Organic dementia; normal subjects; Psychiatry; clinical psychology; psychosomatics; Psykiatri; klinisk psykologi; psykosomatik;

    Sammanfattning : Orthostatic hypotension (OH) is believed to be an important cause of cerebral hypoperfusion, leading to chronic fatigue, blurred vision, unsteadiness, dizziness and sometimes syncope. It may also result in episodes of confusion, falls and fractures. The coupling between OH and organic dementia is not clear. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Biomarkers in Cardiovascular Dysautonomia: an Emerging Field

    Författare :Madeleine Johansson; Kardiovaskulär forskning - hypertoni; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Biomarkers; Cardiovascular autonomic dysfunction; Syncope; Orthostatic hypotension; Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome; Cardiovascular disease; Autonomic dysfunction;

    Sammanfattning : Background: Cardiovascular autonomic dysfunction is a multifactorial disorder manifested as orthostatic hypotension (OH) and postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS). OH has been associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD), and the underlying mechanisms are not fully understood and explored. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Cerebral Blood Flow and Cognition. Clinical studies on Dementia and Cognitive Decline

    Författare :Arkadiusz Siennicki-Lantz; Geriatrik; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Gerontology; Gerontologi; vascular risk factors; carotid ultrasound; peripheral arterial disease; orthostatic hypotension; blood pressure; ageing; SPECT; cerebral blood flow; cognition; Dementia; Alzheimer’s disease;

    Sammanfattning : The importance of early detection of brain changes during ageing has been recognised. Single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) is a method used for estimation of cerebral blood flow (CBF) in clinical work and in research. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Vascular dementia - classification and clinical correlates

    Författare :Ulla Andin; Lund Psykiatri; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; psychosomatics; Psychiatry; clinical psychology; Medicine human and vertebrates ; falls; clinical course; hypertension; orthostatic hypotension; dizziness; cerebrovascular disease; Alzheimer?s disease; Neuropathological subgroups; cardiovascular disease; Psykiatri; klinisk psykologi; psykosomatik; Medicin människa och djur ;

    Sammanfattning : During the period (1976-1995) a total of 175 consecutive patients (m 88/f 87) with neuropathologically verified vascular dementia (VaD) were examined. 22 patients with pure Alzheimer's Disease (AD) were also studied. All patients were diagnosed and followed at the Department of Psychogeriatrics (Lund University Hospital). LÄS MER

  5. 5. Markers of Prognosis in Neurodegenerative Dementia

    Författare :Kajsa Stubendorff; Klinisk minnesforskning; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Lewy body disease; Alzheimer s disease; dementia with Lewy bodies; prognosis; survival; longitudinal studies; biomarkers; cerebrospinal fluid; dysautonomic orthostatic hypotension; memantine;

    Sammanfattning : Background: A prognostic marker should provide information about course and outcome of disease, e.g. predict time to a given endpoint or rate of progression due to disease in patients or subgroups of patients. Prognostic markers could be targeted to apply during the entire clinical course or just during distinct stages of the disease. LÄS MER
