  1. 1. Primary Aldosteronism Screening and Diagnosis in Primary Health Care

    Detta är en avhandling från Department of Surgery, Clinical Sciences Lund, Lund University

    Författare :Christina Westerdahl; [2010]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; hypertension; primary health care; aldosterone; primary aldosteronism; fludrocortisone; aldosterone to renin ratio; renin; captopril;

    Sammanfattning : Arterial hypertension is a very common disorder. In most cases the cause is unknown and therefore classified as essential or primary hypertension. Primary aldosteronism (PA), characterized by an inappropriate aldosterone secretion, has traditionally been estimated to account for approximately 1 % of all hypertensive cases. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Hypertension, Atrial Fibrillation and Aldosteronism - A study of interplay, predictors and outcome

    Detta är en avhandling från Department of Surgery, Clinical Sciences Lund, Lund University

    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Hypertension; Atrial fibrillation; Aldosteronism;

    Sammanfattning : Background: Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common significant arrhythmia, affecting almost 3% of the adult population in Sweden. Although AF is associated with increased risk of lower quality of life, heart failure, stroke and mortality, the therapeutically options are still limited. LÄS MER
