  1. 1. Risk-Adjustment for Swedish In-Hospital Trauma Mortality using International Classification of disease Injury Severity Score (ICISS) : issues with description and methods

    Author : Robert Larsen; Folke Sjöberg; Ingrid Steinvall; Mats Fredrikson; Sten M. Walther; Søreide Eldar; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : IntroductionDifferent methods have been used to describe the epidemiology of trauma with varying results. Crude mortality outcome data differ significantly from risk-adjusted information. A previous standard method for risk-adjustment in trauma was the Injury Severity Score (ISS), although it has several shortcomings. READ MORE

  2. 2. Surgically Treated Intracerebral Haemorrhage : Pathophysiology and Clinical Aspects

    Author : Lovisa Tobieson; Niklas Marklund; Bijar Ghafouri; Sandro Rossitti; Peter Zsigmond; Jan Hillman; Mikael Svensson; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Mortality and morbidity of intracerebral haemorrhage (ICH) is excessively high, and the case fatality rate has not improved in the last decades. Although surgery for ICH can be life-saving, no positive effect on functional outcome has been found in large cohorts of ICH patients. READ MORE

  3. 3. On evolution of intracranial changes after severe traumatic brain injury and its impact on clinical outcome

    Author : Lukas Bobinski; Lars-Owe Koskinen; Magnus Olivecrona; Peter Lindvall; Marklund Niklas; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Severe traumatic brain injury; ICP targeted therapy; ICP; decompressive craniectomy; S100B; NSE; cranioplasty; neurokirurgi; Neurosurgery;

    Abstract : Severe traumatic brain injury (sTBI) is a cause of death and disability worldwide and requires treatment at specialized neuro-intensive care units (NICU) with a multimodal monitoring approach. The CT scan imaging supports the monitoring and diagnostics. The level of S100B and neuron specific enolase (NSE) reflects the severity of the injury. READ MORE

  4. 4. Residual stresses, fatigue and deformation in cast iron

    Author : Mattias Lundberg; Johan Moverare; Ru Lin Peng; Taina Ahmad; Daniel Bäckström; Maqsood Ahmad; Sten Johansson; Mattias Calmunger; Peter Hedström; Linköpings universitet; []

    Abstract : The complex geometry of cylinder heads in heavy-duty diesel engines makes grey iron or compact graphite iron a preferred material choice due to its price, castability, thermal conductivity and damping capacity. Today’s strict emission laws have increased the demands on engine performance and engine efficiency. READ MORE

  5. 5. Levels of organohalogen compounds in White-tailed sea eagles (Haliaeetus albicilla) in relation to reproduction impairment in the Bothnian Sea

    Author : Ulrika Nordlöf; Lillemor Asplund; Björn Helander; Yngve Zebuhr; Michael Mclachlan; Roland Kallenborn; Stockholms universitet; []

    Abstract : The white-tailed sea eagle (Haliaeetus albicilla) is in the top of the marine food chain and its existence in Sweden has been threatened several times. The species succeeded to recover from the deep decline in the 1970s when the exposure to persistent organic pollutants influenced the reproduction negatively. READ MORE
