  1. 1. Microbial biofilms on peritoneal dialysis catheters

    University dissertation from Malmö University, Faculty of Odontology, Department of Oral Biology

    Author : Maria Pihl; Malmö University.; [2011]
    Keywords : MEDICINE Microbiology; immunology; infectious diseases Microbiology Bacteriology; MEDICIN Mikrobiologi; immunologi; infektionssjukdomar Mikrobiologi Bakteriologi; Medicine; Peritoneal dialysis; Biofilm;

    Abstract : When the kidneys are failing the blood needs to be purified artificially. This can be done using peritoneal dialysis, in which a catheter is surgically inserted into the peritoneal cavity, through the abdominal wall, and used to infuse or withdraw dialysis fluid. READ MORE

  2. 2. Analysis of Transvascular Transport Phenomena in the glomerular and peritoneal microcirculation

    University dissertation from Lund University: Faculty of Medicine

    Author : CARL ÖBERG; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2016]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Peritoneal dialysis; glomerular filtration barrier; pore model; automated peritoneal dialysis APD ; three-pore model;

    Abstract : The current work is devoted entirely to the study of passive transport phenomena, or more specifically, the more simple diffusion, electric migration and filtration of solute matter and water over glomerular and peritoneal capillary walls. The driving forces behind such trans-capillary transport phenomena have long been assumed to be simple gradients of concentration, hydrostatic pressure and electric potential. READ MORE

  3. 3. Oxidative stress and inflammation as a response to glucose exposure and dialysis

    University dissertation from Department of Nephrology, Lund University

    Author : Anna Bryland; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2013]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Glucose; glucose degradation products; dialysis; diabetes; oxidative stress; inflammation; endothelial dysfunction;

    Abstract : Abstract: The main player of this thesis is glucose, both on a cellular level and with a clinical approach. Too much or wrongly handled glucose contributes to increased inflammation and oxidative stress, which is reinforced by the negative influences of uraemia and dialysis treatment. READ MORE

  4. 4. Sleep Problems in Patients on Peritoneal Dialysis Prevalence, Effects on Daily Life and Evaluation of Non-Pharmacological Interventions

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Pia Yngman-Uhlin; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; Östergötlands Läns Landsting.; [2011]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Fatigue; insomnia; peritoneal dialysis; renal supportive care; sleep; self-care management; sleep hygiene; MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Abstract : Sleep problems affect a considerable number (49-86%) of patients undergoing peritoneal dialysis (PD) treatment. Insomnia i.e. difficulties to initiate and/or maintain sleep or too early wakening, combined with daytime symptoms, seems to be the dominating problem. READ MORE

  5. 5. Hyperparathyroidism and parathyroidectomy in patients on renal replacement therapy

    University dissertation from Lund University, Faculty of Medicine

    Author : Kerstin Ivarsson; [2020]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Secondary hyperparathyroidism; End-stage renal disease; Parathyroidectomy; New-onset diabetes after transplantation; Maintenance dialysis; Renal transplantation; Survival; Cardiovascular event; Hip fracture;

    Abstract : Background. Secondary hyperparathyroidism (sHPT) is characterized by over function of the parathyroid glands and disturbances in mineral metabolism as a result of renal failure. It is common among patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD) and it often persists after successful renal transplantation. READ MORE
