  1. 1. Early identification of motor problems in very preterm infants : An evaluation of the Structured Observation of Motor Performance in Infants

    Author : Cecilia Montgomery; Lena Hellström-Westas; Kristina Persson; Katarina Strand Brodd; Ann-Christin Eliasson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : motor performance; very preterm infants; movement quality; motor competence; radiology; Physiotherapy; Sjukgymnastik fysioterapi;

    Abstract : Infants born very preterm are at risk of adverse neurodevelopment. It is important to identify motor problems early to initiate interventions aiming at ameliorating outcomes. Evaluating motor development in high-risk infants is a complex task. There is a need for assessment methods for early identification of abnormal motor performance. READ MORE

  2. 2. Can Bone Void Fillers Carry Load? : Behaviour of Calcium Phosphate Cements Under Different Loading Scenarios

    Abstract : Calcium phosphate cements (CPCs) are used as bone void fillers and as complements to hardware in fracture fixation. The aim of this thesis was to investigate the possibilities and limitations of the CPCs’ mechanical properties, and find out if these ceramic bone cements can carry application-specific loads, alone or as part of a construct.

  3. 3. On Crack Dynamics in Brittle Heterogeneous Materials

    Author : Jenny Carlsson; Per Isaksson; Urban Wiklund; Cecilia Persson; Ralf Denzer; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Engineering science with specialization in Applied Mechanics; Teknisk fysik med inriktning mot tillämpad mekanik;

    Abstract : Natural variation, sub-structural features, heterogeneity and porosity make fracture modelling of wood and many other heterogeneous and cellular materials challenging. In this thesis, fracture in such complicated materials is simulated using phase field methods for fracture. READ MORE

  4. 4. Functional properties of silicon nitride based materials for joint applications

    Author : Luimar N. Corrêa Filho; Cecilia Persson; Julia Shelton; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Silicon nitride; Coatings; Wear; Joint replacements; HiPIMS; Teknisk fysik med inriktning mot materialvetenskap; Engineering Science with specialization in Materials Science;

    Abstract : Total hip and total knee replacements are generally successful procedures for patients suffering with pain due to bone fracture or diseases affecting the joints. However, the materials that are commonly used still have limitations. In particular, corrosion products and wear debris may give rise to negative body reactions. READ MORE

  5. 5. Effects of Endogenous and Exogenous Hormones on the Female Breast : With Special Reference to the Expression of Proteoglycans

    Author : Gunilla Hallberg; Tord Naessén; Gunvor Ekman-Ordeberg; Ingemar Persson; Cecilia Magnusson; Eva von Schoultz; Uppsala universitet; []

    Abstract : This thesis aims to study the effects of endogenous and exogenous hormones and mammographic breast density (BD) on cellular markers in non-cancerous female breast tissue. Women on the waiting list for breast reduction plastic surgery were recruited (n = 79), and randomized to 2 months of hormone therapy or no therapy before surgery. READ MORE
