  1. 1. Surgical Stress in Rats : The Impact of Buprenorphine on Postoperative Recovery

    Author : Renée Sundbom; Klas Abelson; Kristina Dahlborn; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Surgical stress; Corticosterone; Buprenorphine; Analgesia; Rats.; Försöksdjursvetenskap - Jämförande medicin; Comparative Medicine;

    Abstract : During surgery, both anesthesia and tissue damage cause physiological stress responses in the body. The hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis is activated with increased levels of glucocorticoids. READ MORE

    Abstract : Prostate cancer (PC) is the most common cancer form in men. Surgery is the treatment of choice for localized form of PC and half of all surgical procedures are radical retropubic prostatectomies (RRP). READ MORE

  3. 3. Surgical trauma, inflammation and tissue injury

    Author : Leif Törkvist; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; Activated partial thromboplastin time; blood flow; blood pressure; CD18; calcitonin gene-related peptide; dalteparin; glucocorticoids; heparin; intravital microscopy; leukotrienes; myeloperoxidase; neutrophils; stress; surgical flaps; rat;

    Abstract : Surgical tissue trauma is a strong stimulus for local inflammation, including leukocyte recruitment. While such a response may be of importance for the defense against microorganisms, it is also clear that inflammation may contribute to further tissue injury. READ MORE

  4. 4. Systemic stress response and hyperglycemia after abdominal surgery in rat and man

    Author : Peter Hager; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : Surgical trauma results in a complex neuroendocrine and metabolic response known as the systemic stress response, which is initiated by neuronal and humoral signals from the site of the injury. These signals converge at central sites and result in the activation of the hypothalamicpituitary- adrenal (HPA) axis, the sympathetic nervous system and an inflammatory response. READ MORE

  5. 5. Inflammatory Response in Peripheral Arterial Disease

    Abstract : Peripheral arterial disease (PAD) is the manifestation of atherosclerotic lesions in arteries supplying blood to the legs. Atherosclerosis is now recognized as an inflammatory disease of the vessel wall and important features in the pathophysiology are activation of WBC, endothelial cells and increased levels of inflammatory mediators.
