  1. 1. Heart preservation

    Author : Guangqi Qin; Thoraxkirurgi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : In clinical transplantation today, the donor heart is preserved with cold ischemic storage that gives safe preservation for 4 hours. Non-ischemic perfusion preservation is able to preserve the donor heart for 24 hours in pre-clinical studies. The aim of this thesis is to investigate: 1. READ MORE

    Abstract : Islet transplantation has found its niche in diabetes treatment. It has contributed to a better quality of life and better glycemic control of patients with diabetes suffering from severe hypoglycemia that are not eligible for vascularized pancreas transplantation. Islet isolation is a technically challenging procedure. READ MORE

  4. 4. Endothelial function during ischemia-reperfusion and effects of inhalation of nitric oxide

    Author : Lars Lindberg; Anestesiologi och intensivvård; []

    Abstract : The vascular endothelium is an important regulatory organ in circulatory physiology and plays a central role in the response to acute inflammation and ischemia/reperfusion. Activation and dysfunction of the pulmonary vascular endothelium are closely related to clinical findings of pulmonary dysfunction. READ MORE

  5. 5. Cooling and dopamine

    Author : Roger Roscher; Anestesiologi och intensivvård; []
