  1. 1. Neogenesis and alloxan toxicity in pancreatic islets, with special reference to the transplanted human β-cell

    Author : Björn Tyrberg; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Cell biology; Alloxan; β-cell; diabetes; differentiation; growth; insulin secretion; nephrectomy; ob ob; pancreatic islet; transplantation; guinea-pig human; mouse; Cellbiologi; Cell biology; Cellbiologi; medicinsk cellbiologi; Medical Cell Biology;

    Abstract : The aim of this work was to study whether adult human pancreatic β-cells have the capacity to proliferate in culture and after transplantation to the renal subcapsular space of mice. An immunosuppressive regimen for human islet discordant xenotransplantation to mice was designed. READ MORE

  2. 2. Development of Salt-Sensitive Hypertension in Hydronephrosis

    Author : Mattias Carlström; Erik Persson; Nils Wåhlin; Russell Brown; Göran Bergström; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Physiology; blood pressure; nephrectomy; nitric oxide; oxidative stress; renal function; renin angiotensin system; salt-sensitivity; telemetry; tubuloglomerular feedback; ureteral obstruction; Fysiologi;

    Abstract : Hydronephrosis, due to ureteropelvic junction obstruction, is a common condition in infants with an incidence of approximately 0.5-1%. During the last decade, the surgical management of non-symptomatic hydronephrosis has become more conservative, and the long-term physiological consequences of this new policy are unclear. READ MORE

  3. 3. A Study on Endoscopic Live Donor Nephrectomy and Elevated Intraperitoneal Pressure

    Author : Pernilla Lindström; Bengt Rippe; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Surgery; Candesartan; cardiac output; glomerular filtration rate; hand-assisted laparoscopy; hand-assisted retroperitoneoscopy; kidney; living donor nephrectomy; morbidity; pneumoperitoneum; rat; renal transplantation; Kirurgi; Surgery; Kirurgi; Surgery; kirurgi;

    Abstract : Live donor nephrectomy (LDN) is a unique surgical challenge where surgery is performed on healthy individuals. It is of great importance to keep the morbidity of donors as low as possible, as well as harvesting a kidney in optimal condition. Lowering morbidity is the motive for introducing the endoscopic technique in LDN. READ MORE

  4. 4. Minimizing Risks and Morbidity in Live Kidney Donors

    Author : Ali-Reza Biglarnia; Jonas Wadström; Gunnar Tufveson; Tomas Lorant; Ingela Fehrman-Ekholm; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; live donors; morbidity; GFR; donor nephrectomy; postoperative pain treatment; venous thromboembolism; HARS; Transplantation surgery; Transplantationskirurgi; Medicin; Medicine;

    Abstract : Live kidney donors are healthy volunteers who are exposed to major surgical procedure and physical harms with no direct therapeutic benefits. Efforts to minimize their risks and morbidity are therefore of utmost importance. READ MORE

  5. 5. The essence of living kidney donation

    Author : Annette Lennerling; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : Living kidney donor; Kidney transplantation; Motives; Information; Decision-making; Glomerular filtration rate; Laparoscopic nephrectomy;

    Abstract : Aim Nephrectomy performed on healthy individuals for the purpose of transplantation is an exceptional activity. It confers great responsibilities to the medical staff involved. Potential donors must be carefully informed and assessed with respect to medical and psychosocial aspects. READ MORE
