  1. 1. On Surgery for Lumbar Spinal Stenosis

    Author : Peter Försth; Bengt Sandén; Helena Brisby; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; spinal stenosis; decompression; fusion; degenerative spondylolisthesis; Orthopaedics; Ortopedi; Neurosurgery; Neurokirurgi;

    Abstract : The incidence of lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS) is steadily rising, mostly because of a noticeably older age structure. In Sweden, LSS surgery has increased continuously over the years and is presently the most common argument to undergo spine surgery. The purpose of the surgery is to decompress the neural elements in the stenotic spinal canal. READ MORE

  2. 2. Determinants of outcome in lumbar spinal stenosis surgery

    Author : Freyr Gauti Sigmundsson; Lund Ortopedi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Lumbar spinal stenosis; outcome; pain; function; health related quality of life; decompression; spinal fusion;

    Abstract : Lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS) is a degenerative disorder of the spine that predominantly affects the elderly. LSS is the most common spinal disorder leading to surgery in Sweden. Recent randomized controlled studies have showed better outcome with surgery compared to conservative treatment. READ MORE

  3. 3. Infammatory response to hyperbaric trauma. An experimental and clinical study

    Author : Anders Ersson; Anestesiologi och intensivvård; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Anaesthesiology; intensive care; Anestesiologi; intensivvård; Complement; Cytokines; NGAL; Secretory leukocyte protease inhibitor; decompression sickness; inflammation; Diving; bubbles;

    Abstract : Reductions in ambient pressure liberates gas in various tissues and can result in decompression illness. In this thesis the patophysiological implications of a blood gas interface resulting from decompression was investigated with reference to the influence on biochemical mediators of inflammation.

  4. 4. Functional analysis of the cervical spine : Reliability, reference data and outcome after anterior cervical decompression and fusion

    Author : Anneli Peolsson; Karin Harms Ringdahl; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : The aim of the thesis was to investigate the reliability of the test procedure, and to obtain reference values for active range of motion (AROM) of the neck, neck-, and hand strength. Another aim was to perform a broad assessment of outcome in patients with cervical disc disease operated on by anterior cervical decompression and fusion (ACDF) and to identify predictive factors for a good outcome.

  5. 5. Clinical and patient-reported outcomes after anterior cervical decompression and fusion surgery : A focus on functioning and daily life

    Author : Anna Hermansen; Anneli Peolsson; Ann-Sofi Kammerlind; Ludek Vavruch; Katarina Hjelm; Gunnevi Sundelin; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Anterior cervical decompression and fusion (ACDF), with or without an intervertebral cage to add support to the fused segment, is an established surgical treatment of cervical radiculopathy due to cervical disc disease. High recovery rates and pain reductions after surgery have been reported, with similar results with or without a cage. READ MORE
