Ischemic stroke and risk of venous thromboembolism in the general population. The Tromsø study
(Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2017-10-21)
Background: Even though clinical data support a relation between ischemic stroke and venous thromboembolism (VTE), the strength and time dependence of the association remain to be settled at the population level. We therefore aimed to investigate the association between ischemic stroke and VTE in a prospective population-based cohort. Methods and Results: Participants (n=30 002) were recruited from ...
Pre-test characteristics of unstable angina patients with obstructive coronary artery disease confirmed by coronary angiography
(Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2017-10-31)
Objective As the mortality and rate of obstructive coronary artery disease (CAD) is low in patients with unstable angina (UA), better pre-test selection criteria for acute coronary angiography (CAG) is warranted. We aimed to validate the current guidelines against other clinical variables as predictors of obstructive CAD in UA patients referred for acute CAG. Methods From 2005 to 2012, all CAGs ...
