  1. 1. Correlated Electronic Structure of Materials Development and Application of Dynamical Mean Field Theory

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Patrik Thunström; Olle Eriksson; Alexander Lichtenstein; [2012]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; DFT; DMFT; correlation; entanglement; Physics with spec. in Atomic; Molecular and Condensed Matter Physics; Fysik med inriktning mot atom- molekyl- och kondenserande materiens fysik;

    Abstract : This thesis is dedicated to the development, implementation and application of a combination of Density Functional Theory and Dynamical Mean Field Theory. The resulting program is shown through several examples to be a powerful and flexible tool for calculating the electronic structure of strongly correlated materials. READ MORE

  2. 2. Laparoscopic or Open Inguinal Hernia Repair - Which is Best for the Patient?

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Arne Eklund; Claes Rudberg; Agneta Montgomery; Leif Bergkvist; Jacob Rosenberg; [2009]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Inguinal hernia; TEP; Lichtenstein; convalescence; recurrence; chronic pain; cost-minimisation; MEDICINE Surgery Surgical research Surgery; MEDICIN Kirurgi Kirurgisk forskning Kirurgi; Kirurgi; Surgery;

    Abstract : Inguinal hernia repair is the most common operation in general surgery. Its main challenge is to achieve low recurrence rates. With the introduction of mesh implants, first in open and later in laparoscopic repair, recurrence rates have decreased substantially. READ MORE

  3. 3. Male inguinal hernia repair with mesh. Short- and long-term results and the question of infertility

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

    Author : Magnus Hallén; [2012]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; hernia repair; groin hernia; inguinal hernia; Lichtenstein; TEP; mesh; male infertility;

    Abstract : Background: In the nineties, the patients with inguinal hernias were exposed to several newly developed repair techniques using alloplastic mesh prosthesis. Although the scientific knowledge was limited, the new techniques were rapidly introduced due to surgical enthusiasm, but also by an eagerness to reduce the recurrence rate and to shorten the time to recovery.

  4. 4. Femoral and Inguinal Hernia How to Minimize Adverse Outcomes Following Repair

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Uppsaliensis

    Author : Ursula Dahlstrand; Ulf Gunnarsson; Gabriel Sandblom; Staffan Wollert; Andrew Kingsnorth; [2011]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; femoral hernia; inguinal hernia; adverse outcome; complication; recurrence; chronic pain; long-term pain; emergency; mortality; TEP; Lichtenstein; local anesthesia; Surgery; Kirurgi;

    Abstract : Groin hernia is common, and each year 200 repairs per 100 000 adult inhabitants are performed in Sweden. Groin hernias are either inguinal or femoral (2-4%). Elective repair is not associated with an excess mortality, but adverse outcomes include recurrence and long-term pain. READ MORE

  5. 5. Minimally invasive hernia surgery

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Center for Surgical Sciences CFSS

    Author : Sven Bringman; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2003]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Inguinal hernia; minimally invasive; laparoscopic; TEP; TAPP; Lichtenstein; Meshplug; tension-free; mesh; balloon; rehabilitation; Swedish Hernia Register; learning curve; complications; intestinal obstruction; polypropylene; polyglactin.;

    Abstract : Minimally invasive laparoscopic and open tension-free techniques have been evolved during the 1990's. Different laparoscopic techniques have been used, where the totally extraperitoneal hernioplasty (TEP) is a technically demanding but probably a better approach to minimally invasive hernia surgery than the transabdominal preperitoneal technique (TAPP), which may increase the risk of adhesions and postoperative intestinal obstruction.
