  1. 1. The role of the adventitia and perivascular tissue for the formation of intimal hyperplasia

    Author : Per Fogelstrand; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2004]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Intimal hyperplasia; adventitia; perivascular tissue; smooth muscle cells; fibroblasts; balloon injury; vein graft; artificial graft;

    Abstract : Symptomatic atherosclerosis is commonly treated with balloon angioplasty or bypass surgery. About 30% of the interventions will re-narrow within a year due to restenosis and graft-stenosis. Thickening of the luminal layer, the intima, is an important component in these side-effects.

    Abstract : Tendinosis is a condition of chronic pain that afflicts several human tendons, not least the patellar tendon, in which case it is often clinically referred to as ‘jumper’s knee’. The exact mechanisms behind tendinosis are yet not fully understood. READ MORE

  5. 5. Leukocyte recruitment and control of vascular permeability in acute inflammation

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Physiology and Pharmacology

    Author : Ellinor Kenne; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2010]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : The inflammatory process is fundamental in host defense against tissue injury or infection. However, the inflammatory reaction may itself cause harm to the host and contribute to tissue damage and organ dysfunction. Leukocyte recruitment and edema formation are key components of the inflammatory response. READ MORE
