  1. 1. Methodological aspects on microdialysis sampling and measurements

    Author : Pernilla Abrahamsson; Ola Winsö; Michael Haney; Anna-Maja Åberg; Urban Ungerstedt; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Microdialysis; liver ischemia; heart ischemia; epicardium; liver parenchyma; CMA 600; metabolism; Anaesthetics and intensive care; Anestesiologi och intensivvård; Anaesthesiology; anestesiologi;

    Abstract : Background:     The microdialysis (MD) technique is widely spread and used both experi­mentally and in clinical practice. The MD technique allows continuous collection of small molecules such as glucose, lactate, pyruvate and glycerol. Samples are often analysed using the CMA 600 analyser, an enzymatic and colorimetric analyser. READ MORE

  2. 2. Electropermeabilization in Experimental Tumour Treatment: Dosimetry and Tissue Effects

    Author : Per Engström; Lund Medicinsk strålningsfysik; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; liver; electroporation; ischemia; Electropermeabilization; ECT; Tumor; 111-In-BLMC; 99m-Tc-DTPA; glioma; rat; electric pulses; Impedance spectrometry; treatment; Physics; Fysik;

    Abstract : Short, electric high-voltage pulses can be used to transiently increase the permeability of cell membranes without significant loss of cell viability. During this period of time, extracellular and normally non-permeant, molecules are accessed the cytoplasm and the cell nucleus. READ MORE

  3. 3. Microdialysis in Liver Ischemia and Reperfusion injury

    Author : Anders Winbladh; Per Sandström; Per Gullstrand; Arthur Revhaug; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Abstract : Introduction: New chemotherapy regimens and improvements in surgical technique have increased the number of patients with liver tumours eligible for curative liver resection. There is a significant risk of bleeding during liver surgery, but this risk can be reduced if the portal inflow is temporarily closed; i.e. the Pringles maneuver (PM). READ MORE

  4. 4. Methods to Reduce Liver Ischemia/Reperfusion Injury

    Author : Bergþór Björnsson; Per Sandström; Per Gullstrand; Styrbjörn Friman; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : Introduction: During the last two decades, liver surgery has expanded enormously, partly due to improved surgical equipment and techniques as well as new and more powerful chemotherapy agents. As the liver is a very well-vascularized organ, there is an inherent risk of bleeding during liver resection. READ MORE

  5. 5. Hepatic ischemia-reperfusion injury

    Author : Melroy Alistair D'Souza; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : Hepatic ischemia-reperfusion (I/R) injury is a complex phenomenon occuring in response to interruption of the liver’s blood and oxygen supply and the subsequent restoration of blood flow and tissue oxygenation. Techniques to reduce blood loss and other intra-operative manoeuvers during liver resection can cause hepatic I/R injury. READ MORE
