  1. 1. The significance of sexuality and cyst formation in the life-cycles of four marine dinoflagellate species

    University dissertation from Lund University

    Author : Rosa Figueroa; [2005]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; cyst; Hydrobiology; akvatisk ekologi; marine biology; aquatic ecology; limnology; sexuality.; meiosis; Lingulodinium polyedrum; life-cyle; limnologi; Marinbiologi; Gymnodinium nolleri; Gymnodinium catenatum; Alexandrium catenella; dinoflagellates;

    Abstract : Sexuality and cyst formation were studied in the marine dinoflagellate species Gymnodinium catenatum Graham, Gymnodinium nolleri Ellegaard ? Moestrup, Alexandrium catenella (Whedon et Kofoid) Balech, and Lingulodinium polyedrum (Stein) Dodge. The study included the morphological characterization of sexual stages and processes, the time and description of meiosis, the study of the length and regulation of the mandatory dormancy period of resting cysts, and the relationships among parental strains and cyst progeny at phenotypic and molecular levels.

  3. 3. Cerebrospinal Fluid Shunts in Children Technical Considerations and Treatment of Certain Complications

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Kai Arnell; Uppsala universitet.; [2007]
    Keywords : Surgery; Hydrocephalus; papilloedema; abdominal cyst; cerebrospinal fluid shunt; shunt infection; intraventricular antibiotic instillation; intraventricular antibiotic concentrations; in-vitro testing; antisiphon device; Kirurgi;

    Abstract : Ventriculo-peritoneal shunting is the most commonly used method for the treatment of paediatric hydrocephalus. Despite improved shunts and surgical techniques there are still complications. This retrospective study focuses on diagnoses and treatment of shunt malfunction and infections. Cost/benefit of using an adjustable shunt was assessed. READ MORE

  4. 4. Intracranial Arachnoid Cysts. Epidemiology, Morphology and Surgical Outcome

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Katrin Rabiei; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2016]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Arachnoid cysts; Cyst morphology; Epidemiology; Headache; Surgical outcome;

    Abstract : Background: Intracranial arachnoid cysts (AC) are malformations of the arachnoid membrane. They may cause symptoms, either by obstruction of the CSF flow or by compression of adjacent neural tissues. READ MORE

  5. 5. Clinical evaluation of an adjustable cerebrospinal fluid shunt valve

    University dissertation from Göran Zemack and Bertil Romner, Department of Clinical Neuroscience, Division of Neurosurgery, Lund University Hospital, 221 85, Lund, Sweden

    Author : Göran Zemack; [2003]

    Abstract : Introduction: Shunting systems are implanted for draining cerebrospinal fluid to treat hydrocephalus, intracranial cysts, and idiopathic intracranial hypertension. Most shunt systems include a valve which regulates drainage. A differential pressure valve opens when intracranial pressure exceeds the valve’s opening pressure. READ MORE
