    Abstract : The natural history of localized prostate cancer is not fully understood. In most patients the tumor will never progress to a lethal disease, while a subset of patients will ultimately die of the disease. READ MORE

  2. 2. Paediatric surgical care in Sweden. Studies on incidence, outcome and access

    Author : Erik Omling; Lund Institutionen för kliniska vetenskaper; []

    Abstract : Abstract Background: Advanced paediatric surgery is increasingly centralised in Sweden in order to improve treatment outcomes and reduce surgical risks. However, the overall need for surgery in the paediatric population has not been estimated, and the association between geographic access to surgical facilities and timely treatment for common surgical conditions in children is largely unknown.

  3. 3. Feedback thermotherapy for benign prostatic enlargement : A clinical and methodological evaluation

    Author : Lennart Wagrell; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Surgery; benign prostatic hyperplasia; transurethral microwave thermotherapy; feed-back thermotherapy; intraprostatic blood-flow; intraprostatic temperature; bladderneck; PET; Kirurgi; Surgery; Kirurgi; kirurgi; särskilt urologi; Urology;

    Abstract : The purpose of this thesis was to evaluate a new treatment strategy for symptomatic benign prostatic enlargement.The transurethral thermotherapy (TUMT) antenna design was studied. The design influences the heating-profile significantly and the absorbed energy in a target volume were only about 13-20% of the energy delivered. READ MORE

  4. 4. Quantitative electromyographic studies of the perineal muscles in normal subjects and patients suffering from anal or urinary incontinence

    Author : Øystein Aanestad; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Surgery; Interference pattern; quantitative EMG; perineal muscles; anal and urinary incontinence; Kirurgi; Surgery; Kirurgi; kirurgi; särskilt urologi; Urology;

    Abstract : The aims of the study were to characterize the interference pattern in perineal muscles in healthy subjects with the use of quantitative EMG techniques, to evaluate if prostatic surgery had any effect on the interference pattern and furthermore to examine the interference pattern in the perineal muscles in patients suffering from urinary or anal incontinence.The interference pattern in the perineal muscles was examined with a computerized analysis, the Turns and Amplitude (T/A) analysis, and the innervation pattern of the muscles was examined with single fiber electromyography measuring the fiber density.
