  1. 1. Measurement of outcome in lumbar spine surgery : Validity and interpretability of frequently used outcome measures in the Swespine register

    Author : Catharina Parai; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; spine register; disc herniation; spinal stenosis; degenerative disc disorder; patient-reported outcome measure; Global Assessment; minimal important change; smallest detectable change; retest reliability; non-response to follow-up; attrition; measurement of change;

    Abstract : BACKGROUND. The purpose of elective lumbar spine surgery is mainly to reduce pain and to improve physical function and quality of life. The quality and results of the interventions are monitored in the Swedish spine register, Swespine. READ MORE

  2. 2. The Impact of Drugs of Abuse on the Neuroproteome : Application of Immunoblotting and LC-MS-based Proteomics

    Author : Uwe Rossbach; Pierre Le Grevès; Fred Nyberg; Matthias Hallberg; Jan Kehr; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Qualitative and quantitative analysis of proteins can be based either on immunological or on mass spectrometry-utilizing methods. In this thesis, different approaches of protein analysis were applied to elucidate the impact of drugs of abuse on the rat brain. Androgens have been reported to affect mood, anxiety and memory function. READ MORE

  3. 3. 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

  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.
