  1. 1. Assessment of active commuting behaviour : walking and bicycling in Greater Stockholm

    Author : Erik Stigell; Peter Schantz; Andreas Nilsson; Maria Hagströmer; Örebro universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; walking; cycling; commuting; validity; reproducibility; distance; duration; velocity; frequency; seasonality; Sports Science; Idrottsvetenskap; Sports; Idrott; Samhällsvetenskap Humaniora; Social Sciences Humanities;

    Abstract : Walking and bicycling to work, active commuting, can contribute to sustainable mobility and provide regular health-enhancing physical activity for individuals. Our knowledge of active commuting behaviours in general and in different mode and gender groups in particular is limited. READ MORE

  2. 2. Radiological evaluation of esophageal function in dysphagia with special emphasis on achalasia

    Author : Mats Andersson; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : Achalasia; Dysphagia; Radiography; Barium esophagogram; Reproducibility of findings; Observer variation; Laparoscopic myotomy; Balloon dilatation; Esophageal neoplasms;

    Abstract : In idiopathic achalasia, degeneration of the inhibitory innervation of the esophageal smooth muscle results in absence of primary peristalsis and in incomplete relaxation of the lower esophageal sphincter (LES). All treatments for achalasia aim at reducing the pressure gradient across the LES, thus facilitating esophageal emptying by gravity. READ MORE

  3. 3. Altered movement patterns and deviating muscular activity in individuals with anterior cruciate ligament injury

    Author : Anna Trulsson; Fysioterapi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Movement pattern; Physiotherapy; Motor control; Sensorimotor control; Neuromuscular control; Anterior cruciate ligament; Muscular activity; Motor skills; Single leg squat; Electromyography EMG ; Postural orientation; Assessment; Task performance; Reproducibility of findings; Performance test; Hop test; knee; dynamic joint stability;

    Abstract : The purpose of this thesis was to increase the understanding of altered movement patterns in individuals with anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury in order to improve ACL rehabilitation, and to develop an observational instrument termed Test for Substitution Patterns (TSP) for standardized, quantifiable scoring of altered movement patterns in legs and trunk. In all, 142 participants, 93 with ACL-rupture (37 women) and 49 uninjured participants were investigated. READ MORE

  4. 4. Clinical Electrocochleography in Menière´s disease

    Author : Kornel Sass; Lund Institutionen för kliniska vetenskaper; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; intrathoracic pressure; perilymphatic fistula; pressure exposure; endolymphatic hydrops; Menière´s disease; reproducibility; specificity; sensitivity; rarefaction click; condensation click; electrocochleography; summating potential; Otorhinolaryngology; audiology; auditive system and speech; Otorinolaryngologi; audiologi; hörsel- och talorganen;

    Abstract : Electrocochleography (ECoG) is an objective method to evaluate cochlear electrophysiology. The recordings are considered to reflect the mechano-electric processes of the cochlea, and can indicate the presence of suspected endolymphatic hydrops. READ MORE

  5. 5. Autonomic function and myocardial repolarisation. Studies in renal diseases and in spinal cord injury

    Author : Sinsia Gao; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : vagus; sympathetic nervous system; repolarisation; baroreflex; reproducibility; agreement; hypertension; spinal cord injury; autonomic dysreflexia; renal failure.;

    Abstract : Both experimental and clinical evidence indicates that cardiac parasympathetic markers such as baroreflex sensitivity (BRS) and heart rate variability (HRV) have significant prognostic value. Furthermore, increased myocardial repolarisation lability reflected by increased QT variability index (QTVI) has been identified as a predictor for sudden cardiac death. READ MORE
