  1. 1. Working Animals and Skeletal Lesions : Paleopathology of Cattle and Horse in Iron Age and Medieval Öland, Sweden

    Author : Ylva Telldahl; Jan Storå; László Bartosiewicz; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; Skeletal lesions; draught use of cattle; sacrificed horses; Iron Age; Middle Ages; Eketorp ringfort; Skedemosse wetland; Öland; sweden; osteoarkeologi; Osteoarchaeology;

    Abstract : Central to this thesis is the relationship between animal husbandry practices and the associated pathological conditions. Since bone elements from the extremities are subjected to abnormal load when animals are put to hard work this research aims to go further and interpret the prevalence of varying lesions and their connection with animal husbandry by using methods such as osteometric analysis, conventional radiograpic and bone mineral study, as well as incorporated molecular analysis.

    Author : Veli Söderlund; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : The aim of the present study was to assess the validity of combining radiology and fine needle aspiration cytology in the diagnosis of bone lesions. Patients and Methods Radiological, cytological and histopathologic findings in 494 cases diagnosed 1993 through 1998 were collected from the original reports. READ MORE

    Keywords : cytology; epidemiology; metastatic bone disease; pathologic fracture; prognosis; radiotherapy; skeletal metastasis; surgical therapy; survival; MIB; p53; ER; PgR;

    Abstract : Aim: To evaluate epidemiology, prognosis and diagnostics in metastatic bone disease and identify risk factors for failure after operation for pathologic fracture. Patients: The study was based on patients treated for skeletal metastases, myeloma or lymphoma between 1986 and 1998 at the Oncology Service, Department of Orthopedics, Karolinska Hospital and on patients diagnosed with symptomatic skeletal metastases 1989-1994 in the Stockholm Region.

  4. 4. Tracing Prehistoric Activities : Life ways, habitual behaviour and health of hunter-gatherers on Gotland

    Author : Petra Molnar; Jan Storå; Christopher Knüsel; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; Activity-related change; Musculoskeletal Stress Markers; Extramasticatory wear; dental wear; Health index; Pitted Ware culture; Neolithic; Ajvide; Archaeology; Arkeologi; osteoarkeologi; Osteoarchaeology;

    Abstract : In the present thesis, skeletal and dental evidence of physical strain and habitual behaviour has been investigated through musculoskeletal stress markers (MSM) and extramasticatory dental wear. The skeletal and dental traits have been examined in relation to health patterns and material culture in order to gain better knowledge of life ways of hunter-gatherers on Gotland with special focus on Pitted Ware culture sites and the Ajvide site in particular.
