  1. 1. Renal hemodynamics in renal artery stenosis and angiotensin II-dependent hypertension. Pathophysiological and diagnostic aspects

    Author : Aso Saeed; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : angiotensin II; autoregulation of renal blood flow; color duplex sonography; endothelin-1; oxidative stress; renal artery stenosis; renal hemodynamics; renovascular hypertension;

    Abstract : Patients with renovascular hypertension have a poor renal and cardiovascular prognosis. To improve the care of these patients, we need to increase knowledge about the pathophysiological mechanisms involved. READ MORE

  2. 2. Hemodilution with dextran: Effects on blood flow and thrombus formation. An experimental study in the rabbit

    Author : Lieselotte Frost-Arner; Malmö Institutionen för kliniska vetenskaper; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; traumatology; orthopaedics; Surgery; Hypertonic saline-dextran; Desmopressin; Heparin; Dextran; Rabbit; Synthetic vascular grafts; Blood flow; Hemodilution; Thrombus formation; Kirurgi; ortopedi; traumatologi; Cardiovascular system; Kardiovaskulära systemet;

    Abstract : Microvascular surgery enables free tissue flaps to cover tissue defects, e.g. after trauma and malignancies. Although major improvements in techniques have been made, problems with poor tissue circulation and thrombus formation still exist. READ MORE

  3. 3. On Renal Artery Stenosis

    Author : Hampus Eklöf; Rickard Nyman; David Bergqvist; Bertil Andrén; Lars Lönn; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Radiology; Renal artery obstruction; Comparative studies; Contrast media; adverse events; Revascularization; Radiologisk forskning; Radiological research; Radiologisk forskning;

    Abstract : Renal artery stenosis (RAS) is a potentially curable cause of hypertension and azotemia. Besides intra-arterial renal angiography there are several non-invasive techniques utilized to diagnose patients with suspicion of renal artery stenosis. READ MORE

  4. 4. Cardiopulmonary bypass and the kidney - studies on patients undergoing cardiac surgery

    Author : Lukas Lannemyr; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; cardiac surgery; cardiopulmonary bypass; glomerular filtration rate; renal blood flow; renal oxygenation; tubular injury; N-acetyl-ß-D-glucoseaminidase;

    Abstract : Acute kidney injury is a common complication after cardiac surgery with cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB), and has a major impact on morbidity, mortality and costs. The mechanism of CPB-related renal impairment is not fully understood. READ MORE

  5. 5. Macula Densa Derived Nitric Oxide and Kidney Function

    Author : Anna Ollerstam; Pontus Persson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Cell biology; Nitric oxide; rats; kidney; macula densa cells; tubuloglomerular feedback; renin; angiotensin II; blood pressure; hypertension; renal blood flow; neuronal nirtic oxide synthase; Cellbiologi; Cell biology; Cellbiologi; Physiology; fysiologi;

    Abstract : The kidney is the major organ regulating the extracellular fluid volume and thereby the arterial blood pressure. The neuronal isoform of nitric oxide synthase (nNOS) in the kidney is predominantly located in the macula densa cells. READ MORE
