  1. 1. Transurethral microwave thermotherapy of benign prostatic hyperplasia : mechanisms of action and clinical outcome

    Author : Marianne Brehmer; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; benign prostatic hyperplasia; transurethral microwave thermotherapy; clinical outcome; sham treatment; innervation; urethral sensitivity; necrosis; apoptosis; prostatic stromal cells in culture;

    Abstract : Background. The therapeutic value of transurethral microwave thermotherapy (TUMT) in benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) is a matter of debate. Aims. READ MORE

  2. 2. INFLAMMATION AND PROSTATIC CARCINOGENESIS ? A MORPHOLOGICAL STUDY OF THE HUMAN PROSTATE

    Author : Wanzhong Wang; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : prostate; carcinogenesis; chronic inflammation; atrophy; morphology; immunohistochemistry;

    Abstract : ABSTRACT: Chronic inflammation has been suggested to be linked to cancers. Inflammatory infiltrates are often found in and around foci of prostatic atrophy. These foci, called proliferative inflammatory atrophy (PIA), are proposed as precursors of prostate cancer (PCa) or prostatic intraepithelial neoplasia (PIN). READ MORE

  3. 3. Medical Laser-Induced Thermotherapy - Models and Applications

    Author : Christian Sturesson; Lund Kirurgi; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; blood perfusion; mathematical modelling; liver tumours; Atomic and molecular physics; benign prostatic hyperplasia; Atom- och molekylärfysik; Fysicumarkivet A:1998:Sturesson; hyperthermia; Coagulation; tissue optical properties;

    Abstract : Heat has long been utilised as a therapeutic tool in medicine. Laser-induced thermotherapy aims at achieving the local destruction of lesions, relying on the conversion of the light absorbed by the tissue into heat. In interstitial laser-induced thermotherapy, light is focused into thin optical fibres, which are placed deep into the tumour mass. READ MORE

  4. 4. A study of the transition from premalignancy to clinical prostate cancer

    Author : Alexander Valdman; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; Prostate cancer; immunohistochemistry; prostatic intraepithelial neoplasia; aspiration cytology;

    Abstract : Prostate cancer remains the most commonly diagnosed life-threatening malignancy and the second leading cause of death from cancer in men. However, little is known about molecular mechanisms that underline its initiation and progression. READ MORE

  5. 5. Contrast enhanced transrectal ultrasound of the prostate : An experimental and clinical study

    Author : Else Krüger Hagen; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Oncology; Transrectal ultrasound; Onkologi; Oncology; Onkologi; radiologi; Radiology;

    Abstract : The purpose of this thesis was to evaluate the diagnostic potential of a new ultrasound contrast agent,SonazoidTM, intended for use in patients with suspicion of prostate cancer.The sonographic appearance of normal prostatic vascularity in dogs was evaluated before and after injection of Sonazoid,using different Doppler flow detection modes.
