  1. 1. Neuroprotection and axonal regeneration after peripheral nerve injury

    Author : Dag Welin; Lev N. Novikov; Lars B. Dahlin; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Dorsal root ganglion; Motoneuron; Axonal reaction; Peripheral nerve injury; Nerve regeneration; N-acetylcysteine; Hand surgery; Handkirurgi; Anatomy; Anatomi; anatomi; Human Anatomy; handkirurgi; hand surgery;

    Abstract : Following microsurgical reconstruction of injured peripheral nerves, severed axons are able to undergo spontaneous regeneration. However, the functional result is always unsatisfactory with poor sensory recovery and reduced motor function. READ MORE

  2. 2. Biomolecular Aspects of Flexor Tendon Healing

    Author : Maria Berglund; Monica Wiig; Olof Nilsson; Jan Fridén; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Flexor tendon healing; Growth factor; Metalloproteinase; Collagen; Proteoglycan; Myofibroblast; Hyaluronan synthase; Mast cell; Hand surgery; Handkirurgi; Orthopaedics; Ortopedi;

    Abstract : Flexor tendon injuries in zone II of the hand (i.e. between the distal volar crease and the distal interphalangeal joint) can be costly for both the afflicted individual and society because of the high cost of a long rehabilitation period, complicated by tendon ruptures or scarring with adhesion formation, causing impaired range of motion.

    Abstract : The purpose of this study on hand injury from powered wood splitters was to describe injury epidemiology and anatomy, to rate injury severity, to evaluate the outcome after injury and to describe factors of possible importance for the occurrence of injury.By searching a computerized patient registry, 131 patients injured by wood splitters from 1995 to 2001 were identified.

  4. 4. Structural and functional changes in the brain after surgically repaired median nerve injury

    Author : Per F. Nordmark; Roland S. Johansson; Henrik Ehrsson; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Humans; Hand; Touch; Peripheral nerve injury; Magnetic resonance imaging; Somatosensory Cortex; Cortical plasticity; fysiologi; Physiology; handkirurgi; hand surgery;

    Abstract : Despite the best available surgical repair, traumatic median nerve injury within the forearm typically causes lifelong impairment in hand function. This stems from an inadequate reinnervation of the nerves supporting sensory functions of the thumb, index and long finger, and of nerves supplying intrinsic hand muscles. READ MORE

  5. 5. Tendon transfer mechanics and donor muscle properties : implications in surgical correction of upper limb muscle imbalance

    Author : Eva Pontén; Bertil Romanus; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : laser diffraction; sarcomere length; tendon transfer; spasticity; muscle morphology; myosin heavy chain; capillary; rabbit; human; cerebral palsy; stroke; handkirurgi; hand surgery;

    Abstract : Tendon transfer surgery is used to improve the hand function of patients with nerve injuries, spinal cord lesions, cerebral palsy (CP), stroke, or muscle injuries. The tendon of a muscle, usually with function opposite that of the lost muscle function, is transferred to the tendon of the deficient muscle. READ MORE
