  2. 2. Ultrasound features of human carotid plaques

    Författare :Gerd Östling; Malmö Institutionen för kliniska vetenskaper; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; atherosclerosis; carotid plaques; echogenicity; diabetes; obesity; beta-blocker; grey scale median;

    Sammanfattning : Atherosclerotic plaques in the carotid arteries are common in a middle-aged population. When a carotid plaque ruptures it may result in a cerebrovascular event. However, only a minor part of carotid plaques will eventually rupture. Finding those plaques is essential to decide the most appropriate treatment strategy. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Ultrasound assessment of carotid atherosclerosis focusing on plaque characteristics and changes over time

    Författare :Ulrica Prahl; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :Ultrasound; Carotid artery; Women; Plaques; Echogenicity; Atherosclerosis;

    Sammanfattning : In a clinical perspective better methods to identify subjects at increased cardiovascular risk are needed. Atherosclerotic plaques of the carotid arteries with low echogenicity have been related to future clinical events. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Development of MALDI Mass Spectrometry Imaging Methods for Probing Spatial Lipid Biochemistry of Amyloid Plaques in Alzheimer's Disease

    Sammanfattning : Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is the most prevalent cause of neurodegenerative dementia. Aggregation of amyloid β (Aβ) peptides into extracellular Aβ plaques is one of the major neuropathological features of AD. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Extracellular matrix in atherosclerotic plaques: its role in plaque stability

    Författare :Christoffer Tengryd; Kardiovaskulär forskning - translationella studier; []

    Sammanfattning : Atherosclerosis is a systemic disease affecting the large arteries caused by the accumulation of lipids in the vessel wall. Cardiovascular disease due to atherosclerosis is today the most common cause of death globally through its end consequences: myocardial infarctions and stroke. LÄS MER
