  1. 1. Hyperparathyroidism and parathyroidectomy in patients on renal replacement therapy

    University dissertation from Lund University, Faculty of Medicine

    Author : Kerstin Ivarsson; [2020]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Secondary hyperparathyroidism; End-stage renal disease; Parathyroidectomy; New-onset diabetes after transplantation; Maintenance dialysis; Renal transplantation; Survival; Cardiovascular event; Hip fracture;

    Abstract : Background. Secondary hyperparathyroidism (sHPT) is characterized by over function of the parathyroid glands and disturbances in mineral metabolism as a result of renal failure. It is common among patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD) and it often persists after successful renal transplantation. READ MORE

  2. 2. Renal Dysfunction and Cardiovascular Disease

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Inga Soveri; Bengt Fellström; Lars Lind; Ola Samuelsson; [2006]
    Keywords : Internal medicine; renal dysfunktion; cardiovascular disease; risk factor; mortality; endothelial dysfunction; arterial stiffness; oxidative stress; inflammation; renal transplantation; haemodialysis; general population; Invärtesmedicin;

    Abstract : Kidney dysfunction increases cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk. The mechanisms for the risk increase seem to involve a combination of traditional and non-traditional CVD risk factors.We studied renal dysfunction as CVD and mortality risk factor in middle-aged men free from diabetes and CVD.

  3. 3. Haemodialysis Treatment Monitored On-line by Ultra Violet Absorbance

    University dissertation from Institutionen för medicin och vård

    Author : Fredrik Uhlin; Lars-Göran Lindberg; Martin Magnusson; Bernd Stegmayr; [2006]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Dialysis; Hemodialysis; Proteins; Metabolism; Renal dialysis; Ultraviolet spectrophotometry; Urea; Uremia; MEDICINE Dermatology and venerology; clinical genetics; internal medicine Internal medicine Kidney diseases; MEDICIN Dermatologi och venerologi; klinisk genetik; invärtesmedicin Invärtesmedicin Njursjukdomar;

    Abstract : This thesis describes and evaluates an optical method utilizing ultra violet (UV) absorbance for on-line monitoring of haemodialysis treatment. Increased efficiency of haemodialysis treatment is considered to correlate to decreased morbidity and mortality when urea clearance (Kt/V) is elevated. READ MORE

  4. 4. Impact of renal dysfunction on serum Prostate-Specific Antigen

    University dissertation from Department of Nephrology and Transplantation, Lund University

    Author : Laila Bruun; [2006]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Urologi; hK2; Urology; intra-individual variation; elimination; peritoneal dialysis; renal dysfunction; kidney transplantation; hemodialysis; nefrologi; nephrology; PSA;

    Abstract : Measurement of prostate-specific antigen (PSA) in blood is an important tool in detection for prostate cancer. PSA occurs in several molecular forms in blood: mainly as a free form with a molecular mass of 28 kDa; and as PSA complexed to alpha-1-antichymotrypsin, complexed PSA, with a molecular mass of 90 kDa.
