OBJECTIVE There have been no endpoint studies with statins for patients with severe renal failure. The purpose of this prospective, open, randomized, controlled study was to investigate whether atorvastatin (10 mg/day) would alter cardiovascular endpoints and the overall mortality rate of patients with chronic kidney disease stage 4 or 5 (creatinine(More)
Borderline ovarian tumors (BOTs) make up around 10-20% of all epithelial ovarian tumors. The aim of the present study was to investigate the outcome of a complete large population-based cohort of patients treated for BOT. All patients (n= 399) treated for BOT in the western part of Sweden (population around 1.6 million) between 1993 and 2004 were followed.(More)
The aim of the present study was to test if long-term mortality could be predicted by endothelial derived haemostatic variables in a population with high morbidity due to thromboembolic disease. Plasma samples were drawn from 212 out-patients treated with oral anticoagulants, at the beginning of the study, and analyzed for mass concentration of tissue(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the 3-year performance of tunnel restorations in Public Dental Service clinics in the county of Blekinge, Sweden. The restorations were made at the indication of a radiographically observed small proximal caries lesion extending into the outer part of dentin in permanent premolars and molars.

OBJECTIVE To investigate the efficacy and safety of a daily dose of 10 mg of atorvastatin in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) stages 4 and 5 and a glomerular filtration rate of <30 ml/min. MATERIAL AND METHODS This was an open, prospective, randomized study. A total of 143 patients were included: 73 were controls and 70 were prescribed 10 mg/day(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to prospectively test whether the risk of bleeding complications in 212 consecutive outpatients treated with oral anticoagulants could be predicted by levels of endothelium-derived hemostatic variables. METHODS AND RESULTS All bleeding complications were recorded during 5 years of follow-up; serious bleeding was(More)
