  1. 1. On paediatric regional anaesthesia : The use of paravertebral blockade, aspects on plasma protein binding, and systemic toxicity of local anaesthetics

    Author : PA Lönnqvist; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; Anesthesia; regional; paravertebral Children; infants Local anesthetics; bupivacaine; lidocaine Pharmacokinetics Plasma protein binding Side effects Toxicity.PA Lönnqvist: On paediatric regional anaesthesia: The use of paravertebral blockade; aspec;

    Abstract : Paediatric regional anaesthesia has gained widespread popularity during recent yearsbecause of an excellent potential for intra- and postoperative pain relief and reduction of thesurgically induced stress response. The aim of the present thesis was to adapt and develop thetechnique of paravertebral blockade (PVB) for the safe use in paediatric patients and also toinvestigate aspects on plasma protein binding and toxicity of local anaesthetic drugs whichmight be of importance in the special settings of paediatric anaesthesia.

  2. 2. The roles of the plasminogen activator and matrix metalloproteinase systems in ovulation and corpus luteum formation

    Author : Ida Bodén; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : ovary; ovulation; corpus luteum; plasminogen; PA; MMP; mouse;

    Abstract : Proteases of the plasminogen activator (PA) and the matrix metalloproteinase (MMP) enzyme systems are expressed in the ovulatory follicle and in the developing corpus luteum (CL). However, the functional role of these extracellular degrading protease systems in the ovulatory and CL development processes remains elusive. READ MORE

  3. 3. On New Implants - The results of five prospective, randomized RSA trials with aspects on phased introduction and continuous migration

    Author : Mats Molt; Lund Ortopedi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; New total knee arthroplasty; TKA; RSA; randomized; prospective; prediction; continuously migrating; safety; stability CR; PS; PF; PA; short stem; tourniquet;

    Abstract : A concern that arises with any change in design or operative technique is whether it affects the long-term implant stability or not. One way to address this is, by measuring early micromotion, to predict the future revision rate. READ MORE

  4. 4. Matrix degrading proteases in the ovary : expression and function

    Author : Patrik Wahlberg; Tor Ny; Ilpo Huhtaniemi; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Biochemistry; ovary; ovulation; corpus luteum; plasminogen; PA; MMP; rat; mouse; Biokemi; Biochemistry; Biokemi; medicinsk biokemi; Medical Biochemistry;

    Abstract : Extracellular matrix degrading proteases from the plasminogen (plg) activator (PA) and the matrix metalloproteinase (MMP) systems have been implicated as important mediators of ovulation and corpus luteum (CL) formation and regression. The aim of this thesis was to investigate the expression and regulation of PAs and MMPs in the ovary and to examine their functional roles for CL formation and function. READ MORE

  5. 5. Reliable and Efficient Microwave Circuits for Space Applications
