  1. 1. Artificial blood vessels - Studies on endothelial cell and blood interactions with bacterial cellulose

    Author : Helen Fink; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : bacterial cellulose; endothelial cells; thrombogenicity; xyloglucan; contact activation; imaging of coagulation; vascular grafts; RGD; cell adhesion; bioreactor; xyloglucan;

    Abstract : Cardiovascular diseases are still the number one cause of death or invalidity in the western world today. Atherosclerotic plaques and restenosis can result in severe occlusions of peripheral and coronary arteries. Treatment depends on the severity of the disease and includes drug therapy and bypass surgery. READ MORE

  2. 2. Tissue engineering in blood vessels

    Author : Gisela Helenius; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : tissue engineering; vascular graft; endothelial cells; smooth muscle cells; thrombogenicity; mechanical properties; scaffold; bacterial cellulose;

    Abstract : Severely occluded coronary- and peripheral arteries, caused by atherosclerotic plaques, are treated with bypass surgery. Autologous veins are the most commonly used replacement graft. Among the patients that need a vascular bypass, 5-10% lack appropriate replacement veins due to previous surgery of bad quality of the vessels. READ MORE

  3. 3. On platelet-rich plasma in reconstructive dental implant surgery

    Author : Andreas Thor; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : autogenous bone graft; bone formation; coagulation; clinical study; complement; dental implant; experimental study; growth factors; platelet activation; platelet-rich plasma; sinus lift surgery; thrombogenicity;

    Abstract : Abstract Background Severe athrophy of the edentulous maxilla may require augmentation before implants can be placed. Autogenous bone has been used for reconstruction in block or in particulated form. READ MORE

  4. 4. SURFACE PROPERTIES OF IMPLANTS MANUFACTURED USING ELECTRON BEAM MELTING

    Author : Rebecca Klingvall Ek; Lars-Erik Rännar; Mikael Bäckström; Jaan Hong; Felicia Suska; Mittuniversitetet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; electron beam melting; blood coagulation; bone ingrowth; surface roughness; process parameters;

    Abstract : This thesis summarizes the results concerning the manufacture of medical implants for bone replacement using electron beam melting (EBM) which is an additive manufacturing (AM) technology, and aims to satisfy the engineering needs for the medical functionality of manufacturing technology. This thesis has focused on some microscopic properties for surfaces and bone integration. READ MORE

  5. 5. Arterial Thrombosis in Factor V Leiden or Activated Protein C Resistance. Clinical and Experimental Studies

    Author : Ellis Sampram; Malmö Klinisk koagulationsmedicin; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Activated protein c resistance; Factor V Leiden mutation; thrombophilia; hypercoagulable state; Factor V Leiden mice; arterial thrombosis; venous thromboembolism; peripheral vascular reconstructions; peripheral vascular reconstruction occlusion;

    Abstract : Abstract The last two decades has seen an avalanche of studies establishing Activated protein C (APC) resistance due to Factor V Leiden mutation as the most prevalent genetic risk factor, yet known, for venous thromboembolism. This has been documented in 20-60% of patients with deep vein thrombosis (DVT). READ MORE
