  1. 1. Gas Embolism in Laparoscopic Liver Surgery

    Author : Diddi Fors; Sten Rubertsson; Dag Arvidsson; Tor Inge Tønnessen; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; Gas embolism; laparoscopic liver; CVP; PEEP; high frequency jet ventilation; cardiopulmonary physiology; carbon dioxide; Anaesthesiology and Intensive Care; Anestesiologi och intensivvård;

    Abstract : Laparoscopic liver surgery is complicated due to the structure of this organ with open sinusoids. A serious disadvantage is the risk of gas embolism (GE) due to CO2 pneumoperitoneum. CO2 can enter the vascular system through a wounded vein. A common opinion is that gas fluxes along a pressure gradient, e. READ MORE

  2. 2. Maternal mortality in Sweden

    Author : Ulf Högberg; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : history of medicine; maternal health services; family planning; pregnancy complications; legal and illegal abortions; puerperal infections; embolism; cesarean section; maternal mortality; pregnancy care;

    Abstract : Every year about half a million women die from complications of pregnancy, parturition and puerperium, most of which are preventable. The purpose of this thesis was to chart the distribution and decline in maternal mortality in Sweden between 1751 and 1980, and furthermore to characterize positive (predisposing) factors and negative (protective) factors of maternal mortality.

  3. 3. Atrial fibrillation after cardiac surgery : an analysis of risk factors, mechanisms, and survival effects

    Author : Giovanni Mariscalco; Bengt Åberg; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; atrial fibrillation; adult; cardiac surgery; coronary artery bypass grafting; valvular surgery; cardiopulmonary bypass; mortalilty; histology; catecholamines; embolism; Surgery; Kirurgi;

    Abstract : Background: Despite the recent improvements in surgical techniques and postoperative patient care, atrial fibrillation (AF) remains the most frequent complication after cardiac surgery. Although postoperative AF is often regarded as a benign clinical condition, this arrhythmia has significant adverse effects on patient recovery and postoperative survival. READ MORE

  4. 4. On diagnostic procedures in pulmonary embolism

    Author : Mårten Söderberg; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; CTPA; D-dimer; deep venous thrombosis; pre-test probability score; pulmonary arteriography; pulmonary embolism; venous thromboembolism; von Willebrand factor antigen; Wells score.;

    Abstract : Pulmonary embolism (PE) and deep venous thrombosis (DVT) are two entities of venous thromboembolism (VTE). PE is a common cause of mortality and morbidity. The symptoms and signs of PE are difficult to interpret, and the diagnosis is difficult to establish. READ MORE

  5. 5. Right ventricular function in pulmonary embolism

    Author : Riikka Rydman; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : Patients with pulmonary embolism (PE) and right ventricular (RV) dysfunction are known to be at risk of in-hospital clinical worsening and PE-related mortality. Even in patients with a preserved systemic arterial pressure, the RV dysfunction indicates a higher risk, thus affecting the patients’ level of care and the therapeutic approach. READ MORE
