  1. 1. Development of Feedback Microwave Thermotherapy in Symptomatic Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia

    Author : Sonny Schelin; Urologi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; nephrology; Urologi; nefrologi; Urology; PET; Schelin Catheter; epinephrine; local anaesthetics; microwave thermotherapy; intraprostatic blood flow; PLFT; Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia; intraprostatic temperature; CoreTherm;

    Abstract : Abstract: The purpose of this thesis was to evaluate ProstaLund Feedback Treatment® (PLFT®) and the CoreTherm® device with regard to biophysics, mechanisms of action, treatment indications, additional techniques, efficacy and safety in the treatment of patients with benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). The application of two biophysical equations in the PLFT software is explained. READ MORE

  2. 2. On the natural history, diagnosis and treatment of benign prostatic hyperplasia

    Author : Stepan Vesely; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : Lower urinary tract symptoms LUTS ; benign prostatic hyperplasia BPH ; bladder outlet obstruction; transurethral prostatectomy TURP ; transurethral microwave thermotherapy TUMT ;

    Abstract : There are a number of important issues which remain unknown or poorly understood in the natural history of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). The standard investigation of patients with BPH gives controversial results in relation to the severity of lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS). READ MORE

  3. 3. Transurethral microwave thermotherapy of benign prostatic hyperplasia : mechanisms of action and clinical outcome

    Author : Marianne Brehmer; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; benign prostatic hyperplasia; transurethral microwave thermotherapy; clinical outcome; sham treatment; innervation; urethral sensitivity; necrosis; apoptosis; prostatic stromal cells in culture;

    Abstract : Background. The therapeutic value of transurethral microwave thermotherapy (TUMT) in benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) is a matter of debate. Aims. READ MORE

  4. 4. Molecular characterization of prostate hyperplasia in prolactin transgenic mice

    Author : Karin Dillner; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : Prolactin-transgenic; mouse; prolactin; prostate hyperplasia; gene expression analysis;

    Abstract : Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) and prostate cancer are age-related diseases, affecting a majority of elderly men in the western world, and are known to be influenced by several different hormones, including sex hormones. Although the hormone prolactin (PRL) is well known to exert trophic effects on prostate cells, its involvement in the pathophysiology is still poorly characterized. READ MORE

  5. 5. Metabolism of free and complexed prostate - specific antigen and their utility for diagnosis and prognosis of prostate cancer

    Author : Thomas Björk; Malmö Urologisk cancerforskning; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; benign prostatic hyperplasia; alpha-1-antichymotrypsin; PSA; prostate cancer; prostate-specific antigen; Urology; nephrology; Urologi; nefrologi;

    Abstract : Prostate-specific antigen (PSA) is a glycoprotein produced by the prostate gland. It occurs in several molecular forms in the blood and assays have been developed to measure free PSA and PSA in complex with alpha-1-antichymotrypsin (PSA-ACT). READ MORE
