    Abstract : Cardiac surgery and the brain - studies on cerebral blood flow autoregulation and mechanisms of cerebral injury Björn Reinsfelt Department of Anaesthesiology and Intensive Care, Institute of Clinical Sciences, The Sahlgrenska Academy, University of Gothenburg, Sweden Abstract Cerebral dysfunction (CD) occurs frequently after cardiac surgery with cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB). The main causes of CD are thought to be cerebral hypoperfusion, cerebral microembolisation , cerebral inflammation or disruption of the blood brain barrier (BBB). READ MORE

  2. 2. Clinical Studies in the Acute Phase of Subarachnoid Haemorrhage

    Abstract : Patients admitted in similar clinical condition after spontaneous SAH can develop very different clinical courses. This could depend on the severity of the initial global ischemic brain injury at ictus. READ MORE

  3. 3. Intrinsic and extrinsic protection of the brain

    Author : Peter Kimme; Olof Grände; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Abstract : The brain is a complex organ and critically dependent on its oxygen metabolism and blood supply. The purpose of the present study was twofold: firstly to design, evaluate, and adopt a physiologically stable experimental model for repeated measurements of cerebral cortical microvascular perfusion by a new laser Doppler technique (experimental part (I) - intrinsic model).

  4. 4. Cerebral blood flow and glucose metabolism in ischemic stroke : multimodal imaging investigations in a clinically relevant rat model

    Author : Fabian Arnberg; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : Ischemic stroke is one of the leading causes of death worldwide. Ischemic stroke is also a major cause of long-term disability with vast socioeconomic results for patients, their relatives and health services. READ MORE

  5. 5. Host-Microbe Interactions: Gut Microbiota and its Effects on Developmental Programming of the Brain, Placenta and testis

    Author : Maha Al-Asmakh; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : Reproduction of a mammalian organism involves inherited genetic programming and environmental factors that collectively shape organ development and function in the new offspring. One such factor are the indigenous microbiota and their interactions with the host. READ MORE
