  1. 1. Stereotactic imaging in functional neurosurgery

    Author : Hidehiro Hirabayashi; Patric Blomstedt; Takaomi Taira; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Deep brain stimulation; pallidotomy; thalamotomy; Parkinson s disease; essential tremor; CT; MRI; neurokirurgi; Neurosurgery;

    Abstract : Background: The birth of stereotactic functional neurosurgery in 1947 was to a great extent dependent on the development of ventriculography. The last decades have witnessed a renaissance of functional stereotactic neurosurgery in the treatment of patients with movement disorders. READ MORE

  2. 2. Stereotactic functional procedures in the treatment of essential tremor

    Author : Ulrika Sandvik; Patric Blomstedt; Lars-Owe Koskinen; Stig Rehncrona; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; Essential Tremor; Stereotactic Functional Neurosurgery; Deep Brain Stimulation; Posterior Subthalamic Area; Thalamotomy; Zona incerta; caudal Zona incerta; Quality of Life; Vim; neurokirurgi; Neurosurgery;

    Abstract : Background: Essential tremor (ET) is the most common movement disorder. In cases resistant to pharmacological treatment, functional stereotactic neurosurgery can be an alternative. Lesional surgery has largely been replaced by deep brain stimulation (DBS). The current target of choice is the ventrolateral thalamus (Vim). READ MORE

  3. 3. Population-based studies of brain tumor surgery: surgical outcome and prognostic factors

    Author : Alba Corell; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Neurosurgery; Glioma; Meningioma; Population-based;

    Abstract : Neurosurgery is the cornerstone in the treatment of a majority of brain tumors. Surgery can sometimes cure or delay tumor progression. However, surgery is associated with risks, and adequate information about the anticipated peri- and postoperative course is important for informed consent. READ MORE

  4. 4. On severe traumatic brain injury : aspects of an intra cranial pressure-targeted therapy based on the Lund concept

    Author : Magnus Olivecrona; Lars-Owe D Koskinen; Bertil Romner; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; severe traumatic brain injury; ICP targeted therapy; ICP; hemicraniectomy; seizures; prostacyclin; microdialysis; outcome; S100B; NSE; Neurosurgery; Neurokirurgi;

    Abstract : Severe Traumatic Brain Injury (sTBI) is a major cause of mortality and morbidity. At the Department of Neurosurgery Umeå University Hospital subjects with sTBI are treated with an intracranial pressure (ICP) guided therapy based on physiological principles, aiming to optimise the microcirculation of the brain so avoiding secondary brain injuries.

  5. 5. Hormones, biomarkers, genetics and prognostication of patients suffering severe traumatic brain injury

    Author : Zandra Olivecrona; Lars-Owe Koskinen; Elisabeth Ronne-Engström; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; neurokirurgi; Neurosurgery;

    Abstract : Severe traumatic brain injury (sTBI) is a significant cause of mortality and mobidity worldwide. In Umeå University Hospital, at the department of Neurosurgery, patients with sTBI are treated by the Lund concept, which can be characterized as an intracranial pressure (ICP) targeted therapy.
