  1. 1. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and Diabetes. Surgical outcome and nerve pathology

    University dissertation from Department of Hand Surgery, Malmö University Hospital

    Author : Niels Thomsen; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2009]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; intraepidermal nerve fibre; health-related quality of life; Carpal tunnel syndrome; diabetes mellitus; myelinated nerve fibre; nerve biopsy; nerve conduction study; skin biopsy.;

    Abstract : Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) is the most common entrapment neuropathy in the upper extremity. Diabetes mellitus increases the risk of developing CTS from an estimated prevalence of 2-4% in the general population to 15-30% in diabetics. READ MORE

  2. 2. Peripheral polyneuropathy in type 2 diabetes mellitus and impaired glucose tolerance. Correlations between morphology, neurophysiology, and clinical findings

    University dissertation from Department of Clinical Sciences, Lund University

    Author : Soley Thrainsdottir; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2009]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; nerve conduction studies; skin biopsy; intraepidermal nerve fibers; Diabetic neuropathy; sural nerve pathology; body mass index; quantitative sensory testing; vibrotactile sense;

    Abstract : Diabetic peripheral polyneuropathy (PN) is a common and serious complication of diabetes. The prevalence of PN is rising with the global burden of type 2 diabetes. The causal mechanisms of PN are not fully understood, but both vascular and metabolic factors play a role. READ MORE

  3. 3. Skin sensitivity testing : A biophysical approach

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Medicine at Huddinge University Hospital

    Author : Miruna Nyren; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2002]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : The skin is regarded as the largest organ of the body, although it is only a few millimetres thick; it is also the interface between the environment and the body's vital structures. Its large surface area is constantly exposed to physical factors, allergens, irritants and infectious agents. READ MORE

  4. 4. Sentinel node biopsy in breast cancer : aspects on validation, diagnostics and lymphatic drainage pattern

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Molecular Medicine and Surgery

    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Axillary lymph node status is the most important pathological determinant of prognosis in early breast cancer. Determination of axillary status is crucial in clinical decision-making. Total axillary lymphadenectomy is generally accepted as a reliable staging procedure. READ MORE

  5. 5. Quantification of Radiation Induced DNA Damage Response in Normal Skin Exposed in Clinical Settings

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Martin Simonsson; Uppsala universitet.; [2011]

    Abstract : The structure, function and accessibility of epidermal skin provide aunique opportunity to study the DNA damage response (DDR) of a normaltissue. The in vivo response can be examined in detail, at a molecularlevel, and further associated to the structural changes, observed at atissue level. READ MORE
