  1. 1. Acute Pulmonary Embolism : not just an acute condition after all

    Författare :Therese Andersson; Stefan Söderberg; Bo Carlberg; Bengt Zöller; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Acute Pulmonary Embolism; Chronic Thromboembolic Pulmonary Hypertension CTEPH ; Chronic Thromboembolic Pulmonary Disease CTEPD ; invärtesmedicin; Internal Medicine; kardiologi; Cardiology;

    Sammanfattning : Background: Acute pulmonary embolism (PE) is the third most common cardiovascular disease following myocardial infarction and stroke. Despite diagnostic improvements, the diagnosis of PE is still associated with many difficulties, as the symptoms of an acute PE are nonspecific. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Acute pulmonary embolism - aspects of respiratory symptoms and physical activity

    Författare :Jenny S Danielsbacka; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Pulmonary embolism; Symptoms and signs; respiratory; Activity leisure; Respiratory function tests; Walk test; Qualitative research;

    Sammanfattning : Introduction. Pulmonary embolism (PE) is the third most common cardiovascular disease, after myocardial infarction and stroke. Post-PE syndrome, which is characterized by long-term consequences of PE with persistent dyspnea and decreased functional capacity, has been acknowledged as a risk in the aftermath. LÄS MER

  3. 3. On diagnostic procedures in pulmonary embolism

    Författare :Mårten Söderberg; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :CTPA; D-dimer; deep venous thrombosis; pre-test probability score; pulmonary arteriography; pulmonary embolism; venous thromboembolism; von Willebrand factor antigen; Wells score.;

    Sammanfattning : Pulmonary embolism (PE) and deep venous thrombosis (DVT) are two entities of venous thromboembolism (VTE). PE is a common cause of mortality and morbidity. The symptoms and signs of PE are difficult to interpret, and the diagnosis is difficult to establish. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Right ventricular function in pulmonary embolism

    Författare :Riikka Rydman; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :;

    Sammanfattning : Patients with pulmonary embolism (PE) and right ventricular (RV) dysfunction are known to be at risk of in-hospital clinical worsening and PE-related mortality. Even in patients with a preserved systemic arterial pressure, the RV dysfunction indicates a higher risk, thus affecting the patients’ level of care and the therapeutic approach. LÄS MER

  5. 5. MRI sequences for detection of acute pulmonary embolism

    Författare :Roberto Vargas Paris; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :;

    Sammanfattning : In recent years a range of imaging techniques have emerged to help diagnose patients with suspected acute Pulmonary Embolism (PE). This is particularly useful for those who are contraindicated (renal failure or allergies) to the contrast media that is needed to perform Computed Tomography Pulmonary Angiography (CTPA), which would be the usual diagnostic tool of choice.
