    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Iatrogenic post-operative nerve dysfunction is a significant problem in many areas of surgery and can be caused by collateral thermal injury from activation of energy based surgical devices (EBD).The aims of this thesis were to: create an animal model in order to compare mono- and bipolar electrosurgery (ES) and an ultrasonic dissection (UD) with regard to collateral thermal nerve injury, and with data of a national multicenter register to study the use of EBD and their potential effects on operation time and complication rates in thyroid surgery.

  4. 4. Degenerative cervical myelopathy: Surgical treatment, imaging evaluation, and outcome

    Author : Eddie de Dios Perez; Göteborgs universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; cervical spondylotic myelopathy; decompression and fusion; degenerative cervical myelopathy; EMS; muscle-preserving laminectomy; MRI; P-mJOA; sagittal alignment; surgical outcome;

    Abstract : Degenerative cervical myelopathy (DCM) is the most common cause of spinal cord impairment in adults worldwide. The overall aims of this thesis were to compare patient-reported clinical outcomes, adverse events, and cost-effectiveness between decompression alone and decompression with fusion; evaluate magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)-based sagittal alignment measurements; determine postoperative improvement rates and potential predictors of surgical outcome; and compare the patient-derived modified Japanese Orthopaedic Association (P-mJOA) scale with the European Myelopathy Score (EMS) for the assessment of DCM.
