  1. 1. Abdominal adhesions - clinical impact and experimental prevention

    Author : Bobby Tingstedt; Lund Kirurgi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Surgery; orthopaedics; anastomotic healing; adhesion prevention; polypeptides; long term follow-up; cost; non-specific abdominal pain; abdominal adhesions; small bowel obstruction; ortopedi; traumatologi; Kirurgi; traumatology; burst pressure;

    Abstract : Intraabdominal adhesions are formed after most operations and a limited number of studies have to examine the long-term spectrum of adhesion-related disorders and the cost associated with this. Only a few numbers of antiadhesive agents are available which, however, do not decrease the actual morbidity that follows intraabdominal adhesions, such as small bowel obstruction, infertility and pain.

    Abstract : Organization LUND UNIVERSITY Department of Surgery, Clinical Sciences Skånes University Hospital Lund SE-221 85 Lund Sweden Document name DOCTORAL DISSERTATION Date of issue: November 8, 2013 Author(s): Daniel Åkerberg Sponsoring organization Title and subtitle: Differently charged polypeptides and their impact on peritoneal and pleural postoperative adhesion formation Abstract: Abdominal adhesions are formed after previous peritoneal traumas where previous surgery poses the most frequent cause. An increasing number of clinical complications due to adhesions have been detected such as small bowel obstructions, female infertility, and pain. READ MORE

  3. 3. PREVENTION OF POSTSURGICAL ABDOMINAL ADHESIONS BY POLYPEPTIDES

    Author : Laszlo Nehéz; Lund Kirurgi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; traumatology; Surgery; orthopaedics; poly-L-glutamate; anastomotic healing; peritoneum; adhesion; prevention; poly-L-lysine; traumatologi; Kirurgi; ortopedi; polypeptides; surgery;

    Abstract : Peritoneal adhesions develop after almost all abdominal surgical interventions and represent an important cause of postoperative intestinal obstruction, abdominal discomfort and infertility. Postoperative adhesions can potentially be reduced by using different antiadhesive agents. READ MORE

  4. 4. Small bowel obstruction and toxicity of a new model of adhesion prevention

    Author : Karolin Isaksson; Lund Kirurgi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; small bowel obstruction; predictive parameters; appendectomy; open versus laparoscopic; abdominal adhesions; prevention; polypeptides; toxicity; biodistribution;

    Abstract : Abstract Background: Small bowel obstruction (SBO) is a common surgical diagnosis. If no signs of strangulation are evident, the majority of the patients can be conservatively managed. Approximately one third of the patients need surgical treatment and there is a need for early parameters that can predict operative intervention. READ MORE

  5. 5. Evaluating an experimental model consecutive to abdominal wall hernia repair outcome

    Author : Annika Winsnes; Karin Strigård; Ulf Gunnarsson; Peter Falk; Birgit Stark; Henrik Thorlacius; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Hernia; mesh; luciferase; full thickness skin grafts; mice; IPOM; onlay; reinforcement materials; abdominal wall; Bråck; nät; luciferas; fullhudstransplantat; FTSG; möss; IPOM; onlay; förstärkningsmaterial; bukvägg; Surgery; kirurgi;

    Abstract : Background: Abdominal wall hernia is a common surgically treated condition. Patients with primary umbilical hernia are operated with suture or mesh repair, but recurrence and complication rates have been debated.Larger abdominal wall hernias need implantation of reinforcing material for repair. Synthetic implants are dominating. READ MORE
