  1. 1. Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm, aspects on diagnosis and treatment

    Author : Kristian Smidfelt; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2018]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm; Screening; EVAR; AAA; Mortality; rAAA; Misdiagnosis; ruptured Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm; open abdomen; open repair; abdominal compartment syndrome; vacuum assisted closure;

    Abstract : Background An abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) is an abnormal widening of the aorta with a risk of rupture if it grows to a large diameter. Rupture is associated with massive bleeding and a poor prognosis for survival. READ MORE

  2. 2. Abdominal adhesions - clinical impact and experimental prevention

    University dissertation from Department of Surgery, Clinical Sciences Lund, Lund University

    Author : Bobby Tingstedt; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2007]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Surgery; orthopaedics; anastomotic healing; adhesion prevention; polypeptides; long term follow-up; cost; non-specific abdominal pain; abdominal adhesions; small bowel obstruction; ortopedi; traumatologi; Kirurgi; traumatology; burst pressure;

    Abstract : Intraabdominal adhesions are formed after most operations and a limited number of studies have to examine the long-term spectrum of adhesion-related disorders and the cost associated with this. Only a few numbers of antiadhesive agents are available which, however, do not decrease the actual morbidity that follows intraabdominal adhesions, such as small bowel obstruction, infertility and pain.

  3. 3. 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.

  4. 4. Adhesive and signaling mechanisms in abdominal sepsis

    University dissertation from Section for Surgery, Clinical Sciences, Malmö

    Author : Su Zhang; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2012]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; abdominal sepsis; lung; infection; neutrophil; chemokines; T-cells; HMG-CoA reductase; NFAT;

    Abstract : Sepsis is a major cause of mortality in intensive care units despite decades of scientific efforts. The lung is recognized as the most sensitive and critical organ affected by the hyper-inflammatory response in septic patients. Immune cell dysfunction develops in later phases of sepsis making patients susceptible to infections. READ MORE

  5. 5. Rac1 signaling regulates platelet-dependent inflammation abdominal sepsis

    University dissertation from Lund University

    Author : Rundk Hwaiz; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2015]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; abdominal sepsis; Rac1; platelet; neutrophil; chemokine; inflammation;

    Abstract : Sepsis is a systemic inflammatory response syndrome to a localized or systemic infection that leads to the over production of proinflammatory cytokines and the ultimate failure of multiple organ systems. However, little is known about the potential role of Rac1 in controlling sepsis-induced intracellular signaling pathways. READ MORE
