  1. 1. Hip Revision Surgery : Identification of Genetic Markers and Evaluation of Novel Treatment Strategies

    Author : Anders Brüggemann; Nils Hailer; Hans Mallmin; Karl Michaëlsson; Olle Nilsson; Per Wretenberg; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Total hip arthroplasty (THA) is, despite its overall good outcome, for some patients followed by hip revision surgery. This seems in parts to be because of genetic susceptibility to revision surgery. The most common reason for revision surgery is aseptic loosening followed by periprosthetic joint infection and dislocation. READ MORE

  2. 2. Early Mortality After Total Hip Arthroplasty In Sweden

    Author : Anne Garland; Nils Hailer; Ashley Blom; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : early mortality; total hip replacement; total hip arthroplasty; comorbidity; socioeconomic factor; cemented; Orthopaedics; Ortopedi;

    Abstract : Every year 16 000 individuals receive a total hip arthroplasty (THA) in Sweden. Even though THA is a common procedure, adverse events do occur. The most dramatic complication is death in the postoperative phase. The overall aim of this thesis was to describe and investigate early mortality after THA in Sweden. READ MORE

  3. 3. Form and Finish of Implants in Uncemented Hip Arthroplasty : Effects of Different Shapes and Surface Treatments on Implant Stability

    Author : Stergios Lazarinis; Nils P. Hailer; Lars Weidenhielm; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Form; Finish; Total hip arthroplasty; Swedish Hip Arthroplasty Register; Hydroxyapatite; RSA; DXA; BMD; Stability.; Orthopaedics; Ortopedi;

    Abstract : The design of an uncemented hip arthroplasty implant affects its long-term survival. Characteristics such as the form and the finish of the implant are crucial in order to achieve the best possible conditions for long-term implant survival. READ MORE

  4. 4. New Biomarkers for Neuromuscular Function and Myasthenia Gravis

    Author : Carl Johan Molin; Anna Rostedt Punga; Johan Widenfalk; Nils Hailer; Jan Verschuuren; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Biomarkers; myasthenia gravis; neuromuscular function; neurophysiology;

    Abstract : Myasthenia gravis (MG) is an autoimmune disorder, which is caused by autoantibodies against the acetylcholine receptor (AChR). The cardinal symptom is muscle fatigue, which can range from slight weakness of the extraocular muscles (causing droopy eyelids or double vision), to paralysis of the respiratory muscles. READ MORE

  5. 5. Neuroprotection in the Injured Spinal Cord : Novel Strategies using Immunomodulation, Stem cell Transplantation and Hyaluronic acid Hydrogel carriers

    Author : Nikos Schizas; Nils Hailer; Elena Kozlova; Mikael Svensson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Hyaluronic Acid-based hydrogel; motorneurons; microglial cells; Interleukin-1 Receptor Antagonist; Renshaw cells; excitotoxicity; neuroinflammation; Neural Crest Stem Cells; Medicinsk vetenskap; Medical Science;

    Abstract : The overall aim of this thesis was to establish strategies to minimize secondary damage to the injured spinal cord. Secondary damage that follows spinal cord injury (SCI) involves inflammatory and excitotoxic pathways. READ MORE
