  1. 1. Symphysis Fundus Measurements for Detection of Intrauterine Growth Retardation

    Author : Eva Bergman; Ove Axelsson; Helle Kieler; Max Petzold; Reynir Tomas Geirsson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : symphysis-fundus measurements; small for gestational age; intrauterine growth retardation; fetal growth; self-administered; relative growth; screening method; statistical surveillance; fetal surveillance;

    Abstract : A case-control study was performed to evaluate the Swedish population-based symphysis fundus (SF) reference curves. The study included 242 small for gestational age (SGA) neonates (169 term and 73 preterm infants) as cases and 296 non-SGA infants as controls. Two Swedish SF curves were evaluated. READ MORE

  2. 2. Human growth patterns - with focus on pubertal growth and secular changes

    Author : Anton Holmgren; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Growth; height; QEPS model; puberty; growth pattern; BMI; secular change; growth phases infancy childhood puberty ;

    Abstract : Introduction: Human growth is a dynamic process, an indicator of health and disease. Previous used growth models have been limited in describing the pubertal growth spurt. Aim: The overall aim of this thesis is to increase knowledge regarding human growth. READ MORE

  3. 3. The Influence of Intrauterine Environment on Cardiovascular Development During Fetal Life

    Author : Helena Gardiner; Lund Obstetrik och gynekologi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; reproduktion; sexualitet; andrology; reproduction; sexuality; Obstetrik; gynekologi; Obstetrics; gynaecology; arterial distensibility; twin-twin transfusion; Growth-restriction; Fetal; Cardiovascular Development; andrologi;

    Abstract : Fetal growth restriction has been linked to later cardiovascular disease, possibly through reduced arterial distensibility in response to a suboptimal intrauterine environment. This thesis sought firstly to examine the relationship between fetal growth and haemodynamics and their effect on later cardiovascular function and secondly to examine the effects of differential volume loading on arterial distensibility in genetically identical monochorionic twins with twin-twin transfusion syndrome (TTTS) and to explore the effect that early treatment has on vascular development.

  4. 4. Fractional moving blood volume in fetal organs estimated using power Doppler ultrasound

    Author : Edgar Hernandez-Andrade; Lund Obstetrik och gynekologi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; reproduction; andrology; gynaecology; Obstetrics; sexuality; Obstetrik; gynekologi; andrologi; reproduktion; sexualitet; fetal adrenal gland; fetal lung; radionuclear microspheres; fetal lamb; perfusion; fetus; Power Doppler ultrasound; fractional moving blood volume;

    Abstract : Power Doppler ultrasound (PDU) is a sensitive technique to detect slow blood movement. The aim of the present study was to develop a standardized method for quantification of the PDU signals recorded from a specific region of interest (ROI) within fetal organs. READ MORE

  5. 5. Stunted growth in children from fetal life to adolescence : Risk factors, consequences and entry points for prevention - Cohort studies in rural Bangladesh

    Author : Pernilla Svefors; Katarina Ekholm Selling; Eva-Charlotte Ekström; Torbjörn Lind; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; stunting; linear growth; child health; undernutrition; Bangladesh; cost-effectiveness; data mining; puberty; prenatal interventions; global health; Medicinsk vetenskap; Medical Science;

    Abstract : Stunted growth affects one in four children under the age of five years and comes with great costs for the child and society. With an increased understanding of the long-term consequences of chronic undernutrition the reduction of stunted growth has become an important priority on the global health agenda. READ MORE
