  1. 1. Symptomatic Carotid Stenosis - optimal timing of surgical treatment

    Författare :Sofia Strömberg; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; carotid endarterectomy; carotid artery stenosis; stroke; transient ischemic attack; ocular transient ischemic attack;

    Sammanfattning : Abstract In patients with symptomatic carotid artery stenosis is convincing evidence that carotid endarterectomy (CEA) confers maximum benefit if performed within 14 days from index event. Patients with TIA or minor stroke have an increased risk of early recurrent stroke in the first weeks after the index event, then declining over months. LÄS MER

  2. 2. TIA in the Swedish Stroke Register (Riksstroke). Aspects on diagnostic validation, risk factors, investigations, and therapies

    Författare :Fredrik Buchwald; Lund Neurologi; []
    Nyckelord :transient ischemic attack; Ischemic stroke; Register research; Atrial fibrillation; Secondary prevention;

    Sammanfattning : Background: Transient ischemic attacks (TIA) indicate an increased risk of stroke, one of the leading causes of death and disability worldwide. In order to prevent stroke, our knowledge of diagnosis, demographics, risk factors, investigations, and treatment of patients with TIA needs to be improved. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Hemostatic disturbances in acute ischemic stroke

    Författare :Elisabeth Rooth; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; ischemic stroke;

    Sammanfattning : Background: Stroke is the 2nd most common cause of death after ischemic heart disease. About 85% of all strokes are caused by a thrombus or an embolus in the cerebral circulation. Stroke causes major handicap with impaired quality of life for the patients and their families and a large costs to society. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Ischemic Cerebrovascular Disease: Risk Factors and Outcome Predictors with special reference to the role of leukocytes and inflammatory mediators

    Författare :Ali Mohamed Elneihoum; Malmö Institutionen för kliniska vetenskaper; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; transient ischemic attack.; stroke; risk factors; recurrence; mortality; leukocyte; epidemiology; cytokines; Atherosclerosis; cerebral ischemia; Neurology; neuropsychology; neurophysiology; Neurologi; neuropsykologi; neurofysiologi;

    Sammanfattning : Ischemic cerebrovascular disease (CVD) is usually a consequence of atherosclerosis and is the commonest cause of stroke. The identification of risk factors and outcome predictors and the initiation of preventive measures constitute the cornerstone of efforts to reduce the risk of stroke and improve outcome. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Comorbidity and vascular risk factors  associated with idiopathic normal pressure hydrocephalus : the INPH-CRasH Study

    Författare :Hanna Israelsson Larsen; Jan Malm; Anders Eklund; Norman Relkin; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; hydrocephalus; normal pressure; vascular disease; vascular risk factors; elderly; depression; case control study; epidemiology; dementia; vascular dementia; small vessel disease; cerebrovascular disease; transient ischemic attack; Neurology; neurologi;

    Sammanfattning : Idiopathic normal pressure hydrocephalus (INPH) is a dementia treatable by insertion of a cerebrospinal fluid shunt. It has been suggested that INPH has similar pathophysiological mechanisms as cerebrovascular disease, but the vascular risk factor (VRF) profile of INPH patients has not been assessed using a modern epidemiological approach.
