  1. 1. Spinal cord ischemia : An experimental study of the spinal cord blood supply and peroperative ischemia detection by a new method of intrathecal monitoring

    Author : Lennart Christiansson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Surgery; Spinal cord ischemia; Oxygen tension; Intrathecal monitoring; Ultrastructure; Aortic cross-clamping; Thoracoabdominal aneurysm; Kirurgi; Surgery; Kirurgi; anestesiologi; Anaesthesiology;

    Abstract : Spinal cord ischemia associated with thoracoabdominal aortic surgery may lead to devastating neurological complications. Improvement in bypass techniques and various adjunctive measures has reduced its incidence, but still 5-10 % of the patients develop postoperative paraplegia. READ MORE

  2. 2. Effects of Delayed versus Early Cord Clamping on Healthy Term Infants

    Author : Ola Andersson; Lena Hellström-Westas; Magnus Domellöf; Heike Rabe; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; active management; birth; breast feeding; cord clamping; ferritin; growth; haemoglobin; human infant; infections; iron; iron deficiency; iron deficiency anemia; iron status; morbidity; neurodevelopment; randomised controlled trial; umbilical cord; Pediatrik; Pediatrics;

    Abstract : The aim of this thesis was to study maternal and infant effects of delayed cord clamping (≥180 seconds, DCC) compared to early (≤10 seconds, ECC) in a randomised controlled trial. Practice and guidelines regarding when to clamp the cord vary globally, and different meta-analyses have shown contradictory conclusions on benefits and disadvantages of DCC and ECC. READ MORE

  3. 3. Exploring the heterogeneity of the hematopoietic stem and progenitor cell pool in cord blood

    Abstract : Hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) is a curative treatment for a wide range of malignant and hereditary disorders. It is yet the only clinically established stem cell treatment. READ MORE

  4. 4. Delayed cord clamping in Nepal-Evidence for implementation

    Author : Nisha Rana; Mats Målqvist; Ola Andersson; Ashish KC; Thorkild Tylleskär; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Attitude; Clinical Practice; Ferritin; Haemoglobin; Iron deficiency; Iron deficiency anaemia; Iron status; Jaundice; Neonatal hyperbilirubinemia; Newborn; Neurodevelopment; Randomized controlled trial; Umbilical cord clamping.; Medicinsk vetenskap; Medical Science;

    Abstract : The aims of this thesis were to investigate effects of timing of umbilical cord clamping on newborn health, and on infant outcomes up to 12 months of age in a high-risk population and to explore the context of implementing changed umbilical cord clamping practices in Nepal.A randomised controlled trial with 540 late preterm and term infants born by normal vaginal delivery was set up at a maternity hospital in Kathmandu, Nepal.

  5. 5. Spinal cord oxygenation during thoracic aortic clamping in pigs

    Author : Anders Hellberg; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Surgery; Thoracoabdominal aortic replacement; spinal cord ischaemia; cerebrospinal; intrathecal monitoring; oxygen tension; Kirurgi; Surgery; Kirurgi; Surgery; kirurgi;

    Abstract : Despite a dramatic reduction in the mortality associated with thoracoabdominal aorticreplacement during the past 40 years, spinal cord ischaemia that results in paraplegia remainsa serious complication. Simple and reliable intraoperative monitoring techniques are neededto detect impending neurological deficit in time to prevent permanent damage. READ MORE
