  1. 1. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and Diabetes. Surgical outcome and nerve pathology

    University dissertation from Department of Hand Surgery, Malmö University Hospital

    Author : Niels Thomsen; [2009]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; intraepidermal nerve fibre; health-related quality of life; Carpal tunnel syndrome; diabetes mellitus; myelinated nerve fibre; nerve biopsy; nerve conduction study; skin biopsy.;

    Abstract : Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) is the most common entrapment neuropathy in the upper extremity. Diabetes mellitus increases the risk of developing CTS from an estimated prevalence of 2-4% in the general population to 15-30% in diabetics. READ MORE

  2. 2. Peripheral polyneuropathy in type 2 diabetes mellitus and impaired glucose tolerance. Correlations between morphology, neurophysiology, and clinical findings

    University dissertation from Department of Clinical Sciences, Lund University

  4. 4. Mucosal regeneration following sinus surgery : an experimental study and clinical study

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Clinical Sciences

    Author : Karin Forsgren; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [1999]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; chronic sinusitis; histopathology; Caldwell-Luc operation; sinus surgery; rabbit; regeneration; sinus mucosa; experimental sinusitis; microcirculation; blood flow; vasoreactivity; nerve regeneration; sympathetic; neuropeptide Y; tyrosine hydroxylase; immunocytochemistry;

    Abstract : The investigations described in this thesis concerned functional and structural aspects of the regenerated sinus mucosa following sinus surgery. In a biopsy material collected pre- and postoperatively from patients with chronic maxillary sinusitis, randomized for treatment with either Functional Endoscopic Sinus Surgery (FESS) or the Caldwell-Luc procedure (CL), histological parameters were evaluated semiquantitatively and correlated to endoscopic findings and patients' symptoms.

  5. 5. Charcot-Marie-tooth disease : muscle morphological and neurophysiological aspects

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Clinical Neuroscience

    Author : UllaBritt Ericson-Gripenstedt; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [1999]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease (CMT) is a common inherited disorder of the peripheral nervous system characterised by distal weakness and muscular atrophy, sensory disturbance of the distal limbs, diminished or absent deep tendon reflexes and often pes cavus. CMT is divided into two major groups based on clinical and electrophysiological findings. READ MORE
