  1. 1. Signal Transduction in Focal Cerebral Ischemia : Experimental Studies on VEGF, MAPK and Src family kinases

    Author : Fredrik Lennmyr; Andreas Terént; Tommy Olsson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Medical sciences; MEDICIN OCH VÅRD; MEDICINE; MEDICIN; Medicin; Medicine;

    Abstract : Cerebral ischemia elicits a wide range of events, including complex activation of various intracellular signaling pathways. This study aims to investigate the expression of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) and the activation pattern of mitogen-activated protein kinases (MAPK) in reponse to focal cerebral ischemia.

    Abstract : Diabetes is a major risk factor for ischemic stroke and is associated with increased mortality. Additionally, hyperglycemia, a common complication in acute stroke, is associated with poor outcome. READ MORE

  3. 3. Cerebral Perfusion and Metabolism during Experimental Extracorporeal Circulation

    Author : Ove Jonsson; Stefan Thelin; Fredrik Lennmyr; Sven-Erik Ricksten; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; cerebral perfusion; Experimental brain research; Experimentell hjärnforskning; Thoraxkirurgi; Thorax Surgery;

    Abstract : Neurologic injuries are major causes of mortality and morbidity after cardiac surgery. This thesis aimed to investigate cerebral metabolism and perfusion abnormalities in pigs during hypothermic circulatory arrest, selective antegrade cerebral perfusion (SACP) and extracorporeal circulation following progressive venous stasis.

  4. 4. Hyperglycemia in Experimental Cerebral Ischemia

    Author : Maria Molnar; Fredrik Lennmyr; Sten Lindahl; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; brain ischemia; cardiac arrest; cytokines; gene expression; glucose; hyperglycemia; microarray; oxidative stress; pigs; rats; reperfusion; resuscitation S100β; Anaesthesiology and Intensive Care; Anestesiologi och intensivvård; Neuroscience; Neurovetenskap;

    Abstract : Cerebral ischemia is a life-threatening condition associated with a substantial morbidity and mortality. Hyperglycemia, a common coexisting phenomenon in both stroke and cardiac arrest (CA), may further aggravate ischemic brain injury. To date, the therapeutic possibilities are lim-ited and the search for new treatment modalities is warranted. READ MORE

  5. 5. Cerebral Perfusion during Cardiopulmonary Bypass

    Author : Thomas Tovedal; Fredrik Lennmyr; Stefan Thelin; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Impaired superior vena cava (SVC) cannula outflow during cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) is a frequent issue, often manifested by only marginal changes in routine monitoring parameters. Nevertheless, significant impact on cerebral perfusion may result. READ MORE
