    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; nephrology; Urologi; nefrologi; Urology; PET; Schelin Catheter; epinephrine; local anaesthetics; microwave thermotherapy; intraprostatic blood flow; PLFT; Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia; intraprostatic temperature; CoreTherm;

    Abstract : Abstract: The purpose of this thesis was to evaluate ProstaLund Feedback Treatment® (PLFT®) and the CoreTherm® device with regard to biophysics, mechanisms of action, treatment indications, additional techniques, efficacy and safety in the treatment of patients with benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). The application of two biophysical equations in the PLFT software is explained. READ MORE

  2. 2. Feedback thermotherapy for benign prostatic enlargement : A clinical and methodological evaluation

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Lennart Wagrell; Uppsala universitet.; [1999]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Surgery; benign prostatic hyperplasia; transurethral microwave thermotherapy; feed-back thermotherapy; intraprostatic blood-flow; intraprostatic temperature; bladderneck; PET; Kirurgi; MEDICINE Surgery; MEDICIN Kirurgi; kirurgi; särskilt urologi; Urology;

    Abstract : The purpose of this thesis was to evaluate a new treatment strategy for symptomatic benign prostatic enlargement.The transurethral thermotherapy (TUMT) antenna design was studied. The design influences the heating-profile significantly and the absorbed energy in a target volume were only about 13-20% of the energy delivered. READ MORE

    Abstract : Background. The therapeutic value of transurethral microwave thermotherapy (TUMT) in benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) is a matter of debate. Aims. READ MORE

  5. 5. Medical Laser-Induced Thermotherapy - Models and Applications

    University dissertation from Department of Physics, Lund University

    Author : Christian Sturesson; [1998]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; blood perfusion; mathematical modelling; liver tumours; Atomic and molecular physics; benign prostatic hyperplasia; Atom- och molekylärfysik; Fysicumarkivet A:1998:Sturesson; hyperthermia; Coagulation; tissue optical properties;

    Abstract : Heat has long been utilised as a therapeutic tool in medicine. Laser-induced thermotherapy aims at achieving the local destruction of lesions, relying on the conversion of the light absorbed by the tissue into heat. In interstitial laser-induced thermotherapy, light is focused into thin optical fibres, which are placed deep into the tumour mass. READ MORE
