  1. 1. Inflammatory Response in Peripheral Arterial Disease

    Författare :Peter Danielsson; Malmö Institutionen för kliniska vetenskaper; []

    Sammanfattning : Peripheral arterial disease (PAD) is the manifestation of atherosclerotic lesions in arteries supplying blood to the legs. Atherosclerosis is now recognized as an inflammatory disease of the vessel wall and important features in the pathophysiology are activation of WBC, endothelial cells and increased levels of inflammatory mediators.

  2. 2. Diabetes and peripheral arterial disease

    Författare :Jonas Malmstedt; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :;

    Sammanfattning : Background: Diabetes mellitus increases the risk for peripheral arterial disease (PAD) early in life and the disease is likely to progress to advanced stages. Mechanisms responsible for premature PAD in diabetes are partly unknown. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Epidemiological aspects of peripheral arterial disease

    Nyckelord :Peripheral arterial disease; prevalence; risk factors; sex differences; diagnosis; intermittent claudication; preventive medication; cost effectiveness;

    Sammanfattning : Peripheral arterial disease (PAD) is defined as atherosclerosis in the arteries distal to the aortic bifurcation, with or without symptoms in the legs. It is diagnosed by ankle brachial pressure index (ABI) measurements and symptoms, and a confirmed diagnosis is associated with an increased cardiovascular (CV) mortality reaching the same levels as in patients with symptomatic coronary disease.

  4. 4. Life situation in people with peripheral arterial disease and their family members

    Författare :Louise Egberg; Anne-Cathrine Mattiasson; Johan Styrud; Karl-Gösta Ljungström; Sissel Andreassen; Berit Lundman; Sophiahemmet Högskola; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []

    Sammanfattning : Life with peripheral arterial disease and the resulting impaired walking ability leads to major limitations in daily life and a decreased quality of life. The overall aim of this thesis was to generate understanding about the life situation among people living with peripheral arterial disease and their family members. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Importance of peripheral arterial disease as a risk marker in patients with myocardial infarction

    Författare :Birgitta Jönelid; Christina Christersson; Nina Johnston; Bertil Lindahl; Bertil Andrén; Lena Jonasson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :Coronary heart disease; Peripheral artery disease; Polyvascular disease; Inflammatory biomarkers; TNFR-1; TNFR-2; GDF-15; Cardiovascular events.; Cardiology; Kardiologi;

    Sammanfattning : The purpose of this thesis was to describe the true prevalence of widespread arterial disease in a cohort with patients with a recent myocardial infarction (MI) to find valuable clinical methods to detect these patients. Our aim was also to investigate biomarker relationships with peripheral artery disease (PAD) and the importance of PAD in patients’ long-term outcomes. LÄS MER
