    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Craniosynostosis; Sagittal synostosis; Plastic surgery; Craniofacial; surgery; Spring mediated cranioplasty; Modified pi-plasty; procedure; Roentgencephalometry.;

    Abstract : Objectives: The present investigation was aimed at expanding the knowledge base regarding the skull morphology in sagittal craniosynostosis and at assessing the safety and efficacy of two dynamic cranioplasty procedures, the modified pi-plasty procedure and the spring-mediated cranioplasty. Methods: The patient population consisted of children with non-syndromic sagittal craniosynostosis. READ MORE

  2. 2. Bone grafts and dental implants in the reconstruction of the severely atrophied, edentulous maxilla

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Björn Johansson; [2001]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Surgery; dental implants; maxilla; grafted bone; implant failure; clinical study; computed tomography; cutting torque; Kirurgi; MEDICINE Surgery; MEDICIN Kirurgi; plastikkirurgi; Plastic Surgery;

    Abstract : In two prospective, clinical studies the stability of implants and prosthetic constructions were evaluated after three years of loading. In the first study, the implant and the bridge stability of 39 patients with 1-stage bone grafts, were compared to a reference-group of 37 patients who did not need bone grafts. READ MORE

  3. 3. Perceived Physical and Psychological Outcome After Severe Burn Injury

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Morten Kildal; Lisa Ekselius; Bengt Gerdin; Folke Sjöberg; [2003]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Surgery; Burns; Outcome Assessment; Health Status; Quality of Life; Personality; Rehabilitation; Wounds and Injuries; Accidents; Coping; Kirurgi; MEDICINE Surgery; MEDICIN Kirurgi; plastikkirurgi; Plastic Surgery;

    Abstract : There is very little data on physical and psychological long-term outcome after severe burn injury. The aim of the present thesis was to improve current instruments for assessment of these issues, to assess long-term outcome in a cohort of patients with burn injuries, and to explore the contribution of the individual factors of personality and coping on perceived outcome.

  4. 4. In vitro and in vivo studies of tissue engineering in reconstructive plastic surgery

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Fredrik R.M. Huss; Gunnar Kratz; Elof Eriksson; [2005]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Tissue engineering; plastic surgery; guided tissue regeneration; MEDICINE Surgery Surgical research Plastic surgery; MEDICIN Kirurgi Kirurgisk forskning Plastikkirurgi;

    Abstract : To correct, improve, and maintain tissues, and their functions, are common denominators in tissue engineering and reconstructive plastic surgery. This can be achieved by using autolo-gous tissues as in flaps or transplants. However, often autologous tissue is not useable. READ MORE
