  1. 1. Experimental Colonic Obstruction and Anastomotic Healing

    University dissertation from Department of Clinical Sciences, Lund University

    Author : Martin Rehn; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2012]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Obstruction; anastomosis; colon; wound healing; matrix metalloproteinases; collagen; MMP inhibition;

    Abstract : Colorectal cancer is one of the most common malignant diseases world-wide. Most patients can be diagnosed, staged and treated by surgery in an elective setting. However, about one fifth of the patients will have an emergency presentation and in most cases due to malignant obstruction of the left colon. READ MORE

  2. 2. The Anabolic - Anti-catabolic Paradigm of Augmenting Skeletal Regeneration: A Bone Quality Perspective

    University dissertation from Department of Biomedical Engineering, Lund university

    Author : Neashan Mathavan; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2017-05-08]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Bone fracture; Fracture healing; bone quality; Bone biomechanics; bone morphogenetic protein-7; Zoledronate; skeletal regeneration;

    Abstract : Successful fracture repair is a complex series of coordinated processes leading to regeneration of new bone to bridge the fracture site, remodelling of the newly formed bone and restoration of skeletal function. Disruption of these processes occurs in approximately 10% of all fractures and leads to delayed or failed healing requiring surgical interventions, increased complication rates, prolonged rehabilitation and high morbidity.

  3. 3. Biomolecular Aspects of Flexor Tendon Healing

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Maria Berglund; Uppsala universitet.; [2010]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Flexor tendon healing; Growth factor; Metalloproteinase; Collagen; Proteoglycan; Myofibroblast; Hyaluronan synthase; Mast cell; MEDICINE Surgery Surgical research Hand surgery; MEDICIN Kirurgi Kirurgisk forskning 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.

  4. 4. Plasminogen a novel inflammatory regulator that promotes wound healing

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå University

    Abstract : The plasminogen activator (PA) system has been shown to be intimately involved in wound healing. However, the role of this system in the initiation and resolution of inflammation during healing process remained to be determined. READ MORE

    Abstract : Dredging activities at ports and harbors are inevitable for safe navigation of ships and vessels. The outcomes of dredging are huge volumes of dredged materials, which can range from very fine and contaminated sediments to sands and gravels. The coarse sands and gravels can be directly used in civil engineering applications. READ MORE
