  1. 1. Varicose Veins : Aspects on Diagnosis and Surgical Treatment

    Author : Lena Blomgren; David Bergqvist; Gunnar Johansson; Lars Norgren; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Surgery; Varicose veins; Venous insufficiency; Surgery; Duplex; Quality of life; Cost analysis; Kirurgi; Surgery; Kirurgi;

    Abstract : Treatment for varicose veins (VV) is insufficiently evidence based and recurrence rates are high. The aim of this thesis was to study the long-term results after VV surgery, risk factors for recurrences and the effect of preoperative duplex scanning on recurrence rate, quality of life (QoL) and costs.

  2. 2. Iatrogenic Vascular Injuries

    Author : Håkan Rudström; Martin Björck; David Bergqvist; Carl Magnus Wahlgren; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; vascular injuries; vascular surgery; vascular trauma; injury; medical error; patient safety; postoperative death; postoperative mortality; patient insurance; varicose veins; Kirurgi; Surgery;

    Abstract : Iatrogenic vascular injuries (IVIs) and injuries associated with vascular surgery can cause severe morbidity and death. The aims of this thesis were to study those injuries in the Swedish vascular registry (Swedvasc), the Swedish medical injury insurance where insurance claims are registered, the Population and Cause of death registries, and in patient records, in order to explore preventive strategies.

  3. 3. Assessment of venous insufficiency in patients with chronic venous leg ulcers.Venous hemodynamics before and after surgery

    Author : Marie Magnusson; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : Colour Doppler Ultrasound; leg ulcer; varicose vein surgery; recurrent leg ulcers;

    Abstract : Venous insufficiency in the legs is a common disease, which may be complicated by chronic leg ulcers in 1% among the population. Venous ulcer duration is often long compared to other aetiologies and for the patient it involves long periods of pain, discomfort and reduced quality of life. READ MORE

  4. 4. Sympathetic neural blockade during regional analgesia : Clinical investigations in man

    Author : Lars-Åke Malmqvist; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Abstract : Different opinions exist concerning the extent and intensi-ty of the concomitant sympathetic block during regional blockade, and how to test the completeness of the sympathetic blockade. Studies were performed on 21 volunteers and 162 patients scheduled for surgery of the urogenital area or surgery for varicose v-eins, and chronic pain patients. READ MORE

  5. 5. Numerical studies of bypass transition in the Blasius boundary layer

    Author : Luca Brandt; KTH; []
    Keywords : Fluid Mechanics; laminar-turbulent transition; boundary layer flow; transient growth; streamwise streaks; secondary instability;

    Abstract : Experimental findings show that transition from laminar toturbulent ow may occur also if the exponentially growingperturbations, eigensolutions to the linearised disturbanceequations, are damped. An alternative non-modal growthmechanism has been recently identi fied, also based on thelinear approximation. READ MORE
