    Abstract : Budd-Chiari syndrome (BCS) i.e. thrombosis in the hepatic veins and/or inferior vena cava, and portal vein thrombosis (PVT) are rare disorders. Epidemiological data are scarce and previous reports have been from highly specialised referral centres. READ MORE

  2. 2. Interventions for portal hypertension in patients with portal vein occlusion and possible effects of a stent-graft on hepatic circulation

    University dissertation from Diagnostic Radiology, (Lund)

    Author : Inger Keussen; [2007]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; recanalization; TIPS; hepatic vein occlusion; children; Key words: portal vein occlusion; scintigraphy; stent; portal hypertension;

    Abstract : Symptomatic portal hypertension (PH), is often treated by transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt (TIPS). Patients with PH, caused by prehepatic portal vein occlusion, require recanalization with stent or stent-graft often followed by additional TIPS. READ MORE

  3. 3. Harvesting of Saphenous Vein for Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting An Improved Technique that Maintains Vein Wall Integrity and Provides a High Early Patency Rate

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Domingos Souza; Kjell Rådegran; [2002]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Surgery; Saphenous vein; coronary bypass; endothelium; nitric oxide; patency rate; Kirurgi; MEDICINE Surgery; MEDICIN Kirurgi; Thoracic and Cardivascular Suregery; kirurgi; särskilt thoraxkirurgi;

    Abstract : The primary aim of this thesis was to modify saphenous vein (SV) harvesting technique and evaluate its clinical importance. A new "no touch" (NT) technique of SV preparation was developed where the vein is harvested with a pedicle of surrounding tissue, which protects the vein from spasm therefore obviating the need for distension.

  4. 4. Conduits in coronary artery bypass grafting surgery Saphenous vein, radial and internal thoracic arteries

    University dissertation from Örebro : Örebro universitet

    Author : Mats Dreifaldt; Domingos Souza; Lars Norgren; Mats G. Karlsson; Michael R. Dashwood; Anders Jeppson; [2013]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Cardiac surgery; Coronary artery bypass; Saphenous vein; Radial artery; Internal thoracic artery; Vasa vasorum; Nitric oxide; Graft patency; Medicin; Medicine;

    Abstract : A novel technique for saphenous vein (SV) graft harvesting, the No-touch technique (NT), has been developed at the Dept. of Cardiovascular surgery, Örebro University hospital. With NT the SV is harvested with a pedicle of surrounding tissue. This avoids graft spasm and eliminates the need for distension. READ MORE

  5. 5. Transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt in the treatment of symptomatic portal hypertension

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Abstract : Portal hypertension (PHT) is a condition with serious complications, such as variceal bleeding, refractory ascites and bowel ischemia. The cause of PHT may be pre-, intra- or post-hepatic. Initial treatment is pressure-reducing drugs and the treatment of acute symptoms. READ MORE
