  1. 1. The effect of intra-abdominal local anaesthetics following major gynaecological surgery. Clinical and experimental studies

    Author : Jane M. Hayden; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Local anaesthetics; postoperative pain; hysterectomy; inflammation; ropivacaine toxicity; ovarian cancer; recovery; ovarian cancer cells;

    Abstract : Background: Local anaesthetics (LA), in addition to inhibition of pain signalling, also have anti-inflammatory properties. In vitro studies have demonstrated anti-proliferative and cytotoxic effect of LAs on cancer cells when administered in therapeutic concentrations. READ MORE

  2. 2. Long acting local anaesthetics - a study in rats

    Author : Henrik Dyhre; Anestesiologi och intensivvård; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Medicin människa och djur ; Medicine human and vertebrates ; in vivo and effect kinetics; Comparison of in vitro; Neuro toxicity; Infraorbital nerve block; Sciatic nerve block; Lipid depot formulation;

    Abstract : Local anaesthetics provide excellent pain relief after central and peripheral nerve blocks. However, in many clinical situations there is an insufficient duration of action to allow effective treatment of long-term pain with single injection techniques. This problem became the focus of the present studies. READ MORE

  3. 3. New Techniques for Sample Preparation in Analytical Chemistry : Microextraction in Packed Syringe (MEPS) and Methacrylate Based Monolithic Pipette Tips

    Abstract : Abstract: The purpose of this thesis was to evaluate ProstaLund Feedback Treatment® (PLFT®) and the CoreTherm® device with regard to biophysics, mechanisms of action, treatment indications, additional techniques, efficacy and safety in the treatment of patients with benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). The application of two biophysical equations in the PLFT software is explained. READ MORE
