  1. 16. On modelling and simulation of perfused tissue during thermal treatment : thermal analysis of blood perfusion and lesioning during ablative neurosurgery

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköpings universitet

    Author : Joakim Wren; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2000]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY;

    Abstract : Thermal treatment means therapy for which heat is the therapeutic agent. During treatment, the tissue temperature is increased to an injurious temperature (higher than 43 °C for the most widely used treatments). The aim is to reach necrotic temperature in the treatment area and non-lethal temperature outside the same. READ MORE

  2. 17. Spinal cord ischemia : An experimental study of the spinal cord blood supply and peroperative ischemia detection by a new method of intrathecal monitoring

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Lennart Christiansson; Uppsala universitet.; [2000]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Surgery; Spinal cord ischemia; Oxygen tension; Intrathecal monitoring; Ultrastructure; Aortic cross-clamping; Thoracoabdominal aneurysm; Kirurgi; MEDICINE Surgery; MEDICIN Kirurgi; anestesiologi; Anaesthesiology;

    Abstract : Spinal cord ischemia associated with thoracoabdominal aortic surgery may lead to devastating neurological complications. Improvement in bypass techniques and various adjunctive measures has reduced its incidence, but still 5-10 % of the patients develop postoperative paraplegia. READ MORE

  3. 18. Isolated islets of Langerhans trigger an instant blood mediated inflammatory reaction : a finding with implications for intraportal islet transplantation

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Center for Surgical Sciences CFSS

    Author : William Bennet; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2000]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Human islets; porcine islets; complement; blood; complement inhibition; complement regulatory proteins; coagulation; sCR1; Heparin;

    Abstract : Islet transplantation offers a logical means to treat insulin-dependent diabetes. However, for reasons poorly understood, the clinical results with islet transplantation have been vastly inferior to those obtained with whole organ pancreas transplantation. READ MORE

  4. 19. Thermal tolerance in teleost fish –importance of cardiac oxygen supply, ATP production and autonomic control

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Center for Surgical Sciences CFSS

    Author : Andreas Ekström; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2017]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; acclimation; coronary; CTmax; enzyme; global warming; heart; mitochondria;

    Abstract : Temperature tolerance is a key determinant of the resilience and adaptability of fish facing a warmer and more thermally variable future with climate change. Yet, the underlying physiological mechanisms determining the critical thermal maximum (CTmax) are poorly understood. READ MORE

  5. 20. Nitrate, Nitrite and Nitric Oxide in Gastric Mucosal Defense

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Joel Petersson; Uppsala universitet.; [2008]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; dietary nitrate; mucus gel layer; mucosal blood flow; mucus thickness; laser-Doppler flowmetry; mucosal damage; intra-vital microscopy; mucosal permeability; ODONTOLOGY Physiology; ODONTOLOGI Fysiologi;

    Abstract : The human stomach normally contains high levels of bioactive nitric oxide (NO). This NO derives from salivary nitrate (NO3-) that is converted to nitrite (NO2-) by oral bacteria and thereafter non-enzymatically reduced in the acidic gastric lumen to NO. READ MORE
