  1. 1. Pseudomyxoma Peritonei Aspects of Natural History, Learning Curve, Treatment Outcome and Prognostic Factors

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Håkan Andréasson; Uppsala universitet.; [2013]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Pseudomyxoma peritonei; Natural history; Learning curve; Cytoreductive surgery; Debulking surgery; Treatment outcome; Prognostic factors; PINCH;

    Abstract : Pseudomyxoma peritonei (PMP) is a rare disease characterized by mucinous peritoneal metastasis (PM). Different loco-regional treatment strategies, i.e. debulking surgery and cytoreductive surgery (CRS) in combination with hyperthermic intraperitoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC), have changed the prognosis for these patients.

    Abstract : The fight with global warming constantly forces vehicle manufacturers to innovate, in order to be able to reduce the CO2 emissions of their product. This means that marginal efficiency gains in every component are considered beneficial for total reduction of CO2 emissions. READ MORE

  4. 4. Computer-assisted surgery in children

    University dissertation from Department of Paediatrics, Lund University

    Author : Magnus Anderberg; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2010]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; minimally invasive; learning curve; laparoscopy; fundoplication; da Vinci® Surgical System; costs; Children; computer-assisted; paediatric surgery; robot; robotic surgery;

    Abstract : Although positive in terms of patient trauma and recovery time, minimally invasive surgery has several technical drawbacks compared with open surgery. The new da Vinci® Surgical System from Intuitive Surgical® offers technical innovations aiming at overcoming these drawbacks and at improving the surgeon’s operating skills, such as the improved 3-D vision, tremor reduction and flexible instruments with a more natural and intuitive range of motion.

  5. 5. Hippocampal galanin and acetylcholine in spatial learning

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Neuroscience

    Author : Pär A. Schött; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2000]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; hippocampus; galanin; acetylcholine; memory and learning; swim maze; microinjections; HPLC;

    Abstract : The aim of the present thesis was to study how the neuropeptide galanin affects the neurochemistry and functional activity of the cholinergic septohippocampal projection, which plays a pivotal role in learning and memory. This cholinergic system is strongly impaired in Alzheimer's disease and in age-related dementias. READ MORE
