  1. 1. Effects of high intensity focused ultrasound on the intervertebral disc

    Author : Johan K Persson; Björn Strömqvist; Ian McCarthy; Carina Forslund; Lars Lidgren; Lund Ortopedi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; medical instrumentation; tomography; radiology; Clinical physics; Biofysik; Biophysics; Thermal therapy; Disc herniation; Intervertebral disc; High intensity focused ultrasound; Klinisk fysiologi; radiologi; tomografi; medicinsk instrumentering; thermal therapy; HIFU; disc herniation;

    Abstract : The purpose of this study was to study and try to optimise high intensity focused ultrasound treatment of the intervertebral disc. We demonstrated that it was possible to heat intervertebral discs with HIFU delivered by 50 or 5 mm diameter ultrasound transducers. READ MORE

  2. 2. Cell Therapy in lntervertebral Disc Degeneration

    Author : Papadimitriou Nicolaos; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Low back pain; Mesenchymal stromal cell; Intervertebral disc; Intervertebral disc degeneration; Degenerative disc disease; Cell therapy;

    Abstract : Background: Chronic low back pain (LBP) is the leading cause of disability worldwide. Intervertebral disc degeneration (IDD) is central in the pathogenesis. The injection of bone marrow-derived mesenchymal stromal cells (BM-MSCs) into degenerate intervertebral discs (IVDs) has been proposed as an alternative therapy. READ MORE

  3. 3. Intervertebral disc degeneration in dogs

    Author : Niklas Bergknut; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet; []
    Keywords : LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Back pain is common in both dogs and humans, and is often associated with intervertebral disc (IVD) degeneration. The IVDs are essential structures of the spine and degeneration can ultimately result in diseases such as IVD herniation or spinal instability. READ MORE

  4. 4. Nerve tissue injury markers, inflammatory mechanisms and immunologic factors in lumbar disc herniation. Clinical and experimental studies

    Author : Helena Brisby; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Disc herniation; sciatica; intervertebral disc; nucleus pulposus; nerve root; neurofilament; S-100; cytokines; nitric oxide; glycosphingolipids.;

    Abstract : The general concept for sciatic pain has for many decades been mechanical nerve root compression caused by a herniated disc. Recently evidence has indicated a more complex process, with a combination of mechanical and inflammatory/immunologic factors involved. READ MORE

  5. 5. Effects of intervertebral disc cells on neural tissue. In vitro and in vivo experimental studies

    Author : Karin Larsson; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Intervertebral disc; nerve damage; nucleus pulposus; notochordal cells; chondrocyte-like cells;

    Abstract : Introduction: Lumbar disc herniation and sciatica are common conditions that involve interactions between intervertebral discs (IVDs) and neural tissue. The nucleus pulposus (NP) of an IVD contains at least two cell populations, notochordal cells and chondrocyte-like cells. READ MORE
