  1. 1. PET in the evaluation of head and neck cancer treatment - management of the neck

    Author : Johanna Sjövall; Lund näs- och halssjukdomar Öron-; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Head and neck cancer; positron emission tomography; radiotherapy; treatment evaluation;

    Abstract : The treatment for head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) is surgery or (chemo)radiotherapy +/- surgery. Side effects related to therapy are long lasting and adversely affects quality of life. READ MORE

  2. 2. Visual influences on vestibular compensation and postural control

    Author : Anna Hafström; Lund näs- och halssjukdomar Öron-; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Otorhinolaryngology; audiology; auditive system and speech; Otorinolaryngologi; Medicin människa och djur ; Vestibular schwannoma; Alcohol intoxication.; Medicine human and vertebrates ; Vestibular deafferentation; Visual-vestibular interactions; Subjective visual horizontal and vertical; Visual dependence; Utriculus; Balance; Vision; audiologi; hörsel- och talorganen;

    Abstract : This thesis aimed to investigate visual-vestibular interactions in healthy subjects and in patients with a well defined unilateral vestibular lesion (vestibular schwannoma before and six months after translabyrinthine surgery). Visual information is particularly important for balance control during perturbed stance. READ MORE

  3. 3. Imbalance and fractures in the elderly Effects of decreased vibration sensation and vestibular asymmetry

    Author : Ella Kolbrun Kristinsdottir; Lund näs- och halssjukdomar Öron-; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; rehabilitation; Rehabilitering medicinsk och social ; Postural Control; Elderly; Vibration sensation; Vestibular asymmetry; Falls; Fractures.; Surgery; orthopaedics; traumatology; Kirurgi; ortopedi; traumatologi; Otorhinolaryngology; audiology; auditive system and speech; revalidation; kinesitherapy; Physical medicine; hörsel- och talorganen; audiologi; Otorinolaryngologi;

    Abstract : Control of the upright stance and locomotion is a complicated process of muscular activity. The muscular activity is dependant on afferent information from the different sensory organs and interpretation in the central nervous system. Age-related degenerative changes exist in all the domains concerned with control of posture. READ MORE

  4. 4. Analysis of Adaptation in Human Postural Control

    Author : Per-Anders Fransson; Lund näs- och halssjukdomar Öron-; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Physical medicine; kinesitherapy; revalidation; rehabilitation; Rehabilitering medicinsk och social ; Adaptation; Postural control; Proprioception; Vestibular; Posturography; neuropsykologi; Neurologi; neurophysiology; neuropsychology; Neurology; hörsel- och talorganen; audiologi; Otorinolaryngologi; auditive system and speech; audiology; Otorhinolaryngology; Movement pattern; Sensorimotor integration; Muscle fatigue; Age; Cutaneous sensation; neurofysiologi;

    Abstract : The ability to obtain correct balance control information and adjust motor performance appropriately are essential elements in effective postural control. However, functional disorders may affect the reliability of receptor information and ability to carry out corrective motions needed to maintain balance. READ MORE

  5. 5. Recurrent Streptococcal Pharyngotonsillitis Studies on etiology and treatment

    Author : Arne Orrling; Lund näs- och halssjukdomar Öron-; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; auditive system and speech; Otorinolaryngologi; Infektioner; Otorhinolaryngology; Infections; Clindamycin.; Penicillin tolerance; Tonsillar surface fluid; treatment failure; Group A streptococci; hörsel- och talorganen; audiologi; audiology; Recurrent streptococcal pharyngotonsillitis;

    Abstract : In acute pharyngotonsillitis group A streptococci (GAS) is the etiological agent in 30-50% of cases. Phenoxymethylpenicillin (pcV) is the drug of choice in Sweden. However, the failure rate is as high as 5-25% and further pcV treatment is followed by still higher failure rates. The background of failures remains largely elusive. READ MORE
