  1. 1. Intra-abdominal Hypertension and Colonic Hypoperfusion after Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm Repair

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Unversitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Khatereh Djavani Gidlund; Uppsala universitet.; [2011]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Abdominal aneurysm; Intra-abdomnial hypertension; Abdominal compartment syndrome; Colonic ischaemia; Colonic hypotension; Intra-abdominal pressure; rupture abdominal aortic aneurysm; MEDICINE Surgery Surgical research Vascular surgery; MEDICIN Kirurgi Kirurgisk forskning Kärlkirurgi; Kirurgi; Surgery;

    Abstract : Colonic ischaemia (CI), Intra-abdominal hypertension (IAH) and abdominal compartment syndrome (ACS) are devastating complications after abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) surgery. The aims of this thesis were to study the incidence and clinical consequences of IAH/ACS and the association between CI and intra-abdominal pressure (IAP) among patients undergoing OR for ruptured AAA (rAAA), to compare extraluminal pHi monitoring, with standard intra-luminal monitoring among patients operated on for AAA, and to study the frequency and clinical consequences of IAH/ACS after endovascular repair (EVAR) for rAAA.

  2. 2. Acute Abdominal Pain

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Helena Laurell; Uppsala universitet.; [2006]
    Keywords : Surgery; acute abdominal pain; diagnostic pitfalls; decision-making; competence; sensitivity; specificity; high age; acute appendicitis; Kirurgi;

    Abstract : The aim was to identify diagnostic difficulties for acute abdominal pain at the emergency department and during hospital stay. A total of 3349 patients admitted to Mora Hospital with acute abdominal pain of up to seven days duration, were registered prospectively for history and clinical signs according to a structured schedule.

  3. 3. Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm Epidemiological and Health Economic Aspects

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Kevin Mani; Uppsala universitet.; [2010]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Abdominal aortic aneurysm; cost; cost-effectiveness; endovascular aneurysm repair; screening; surgery; survival; MEDICINE Surgery Surgical research Vascular surgery; MEDICIN Kirurgi Kirurgisk forskning Kärlkirurgi; Surgery; Kirurgi;

    Abstract : Abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) is a common disease that is life threatening when rupture occurs. The aims of this thesis were to study (I) the long-term survival after AAA repair, (II) the cost of repair with open (OR) and endovascular (EVAR) technique, (III) the effect of different statistical methods on interpretation of cost data, (IV) the prevalence of the disease among patients with suspected arterial disease referred to the vascular laboratory, and (V) the cost-effectiveness of selective high-risk screening.

    Abstract : The pathological process behind abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) formation is poorly understood and difficult to study. The aim of the thesis was to study the pathophysiology of AAA formation with positron emission tomography (PET) technology, a molecular imaging technique, allowing in vivo studies of pathophysiological changes.

  5. 5. Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm Experience from a Screening Study in Northern Sweden

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Anders Wanhainen; Uppsala universitet.; [2004]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Surgery; abdominal aortic aneurysm; definition; prevalence; ultrasonography; computed tomography; variability; quality of life; SF-36; risk factor; cholesterol; smoking; CRP; heredity; atherosclerosis; screening; cost-effectiveness; cost-utility; Kirurgi; MEDICINE Surgery; MEDICIN Kirurgi;

    Abstract : Abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) is a common problem with life-threatening consequences and was suspected to be a serious health problem in Norsjö, a municipality in northern Sweden. A screening study was undertaken to investigate the prevalence, risk factors associated with AAA and the effect of screening on quality of life (QoL). READ MORE
