  1. 1. Aspects of the human enteric nervous system : A study of the normal development and of Hirschsprung's disease

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Tomas Wester; Uppsala universitet.; [1999]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Surgery; enteric nervous system; Hirschsprung s disease; intestinal neuronal dysplasia; neuron density; nitric oxide; bcl-2; interstitial cells of Cajal; c-kit; human; fetal; development; Kirurgi; MEDICINE Surgery; MEDICIN Kirurgi; Surgery; kirurgi;

    Abstract : Thirty patients with Hirschsprung's disease (HD) who underwent Rehbein's anterior resection, using a circular stapler to perform the anastomosis, were evaluated retrospectively. The postoperative complication rate and long-term functional outcome were similar to those reported by other investigators using the same and other techniques. READ MORE

  2. 2. Novel aspects of the molecular biology of gastrointestinal stromal tumors

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Molecular Medicine and Surgery

    Author : Erik Berglund; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2014]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : The gastrointestinal stromal tumor (GIST) is the most common mesenchymal tumor in the gastrointestinal tract (GI). Historically, these tumors were commonly mistaken for myogenic and neurogenic masses, and then eventually came to be recognized as a distinct type of soft-tissue sarcoma through ultrastructural findings and specific immunomarkers.

  3. 3. Intestinal Bypass and Total Parenteral Nutrition: Changes in Gut Function and Morphology

    University dissertation from Department of Surgery, Clinical Sciences Lund, Lund University

    Author : Mikael Ekelund; [2006]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; traumatology; Kirurgi; ortopedi; traumatologi; orthopaedics; Surgery; Gastroenterologi; Gastro-enterology; Fysiologi; Physiology; total parenteral nutrition; supersensitivity; plasticity; intestinal bypass; interstitial cells of Cajal; goblet cells; eosinophils; adaptation; enteric nervous system;

    Abstract : Abolition of enteral nutrition is sometimes required in severe illness. The primary aim of the present work has been to elucidate possible changes in intestinal morphology and motor function in absence of enteral nutrition. Total absence of enteral nutrition in an isolated intestinal segment was created by bypassing the distal ileum in a rat model. READ MORE

  4. 4. The Enteric Nervous System, Plasticity and Survival

    University dissertation from Katarina Sandgren, Department of Physiological Sciences, Neuroendocrine Cell Biology, BMC F10, 22184 Lund

    Author : Katarina Sandgren; [2002]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Neurology; Nitric oxide synthase; Neuropeptides; Neuronal survival; Lethal spotted mice; Interstitial cells of Cajal; Hirschsprung s disease; Cell cultures; Enteric nervous system; neuropsychology; neurophysiology; Neurologi; neuropsykologi; neurofysiologi;

    Abstract : The thesis deals with plasticity in terms of neurotransmitter expression and survival of neurons in the adult enteric nervous system (ENS). Several motility disorders have been suggested to originate in developmental defects, neurodegeneration, or insufficient innervation by the ENS. READ MORE

  5. 5. Gastrointestinal stromal tumors. Pathogenetic mechanisms, phenotypic characterization and prognosis

    University dissertation from Katarina Sandgren, Department of Physiological Sciences, Neuroendocrine Cell Biology, BMC F10, 22184 Lund

    Author : Johanna Andersson; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2005]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Gastrointestinal stromal tumor GIST ; neurofibromatosis type I NF1 ; mutation; prognosis; denaturating high performance liquid chromatography dHPLC ; sequencing; KIT; PDGFRA; NF1;

    Abstract : Gastrointestinal stromal tumor (GIST), the most common non-epithelial neoplasm of the gastrointestinal tract, has historically been problematic both conceptually and clinically. Recently, GIST has been shown to share phenotypic features with the interstitial cells of Cajal (ICC), including the almost uniform expression of the tyrosine kinase receptor KIT. READ MORE
