  1. 1. Clinical Aspects on Chimney Stent Graft Technique in Endovascular Repair of the Aorta

    University dissertation from Vascular Diseases, Lund University

    Author : Adel BinJabr; [2015]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Chimney stent graft; chimney graft; chimney graft technique; snorkel technique; endovascular aortic repair; thoracic endovascular aortic repair; endoleak; patency; rupture; urgent; stent-graft; stent; graft; aorta; computed tomography; ultrasound; stenosis; EVAR; TEVAR; CTA; MRI; AAA; TAAA; supraaortic; visceral; aneurysm; dissection; mycotic infection; stent-graft infection; follow-up; endovascular complication; sandwich technique; periscope graft; periscope graft technique.;

    Abstract : Introduction: Open repair of the aorta carries a high risk for morbidity and mortality especially in the elderly population and in patients unfit for major surgery. Endovascular aortic repair is safe, durable and effective when there is adequate proximal and distal sealing zone for the aortic stent graft. READ MORE

  2. 2. Blood-Graft Interactions: With special reference to cellular immune-reactivity in vascular and endovascular surgery

    University dissertation from P. Swartbol, Centrumplein 31, 7607 SB Almelo, The Netherlands

    Author : Paul Swartbol; [1996]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; traumatology; orthopaedics; Surgery; Inflammatory responses; Immunology; Grafts; Vascular; Endovascular; Kirurgi; ortopedi; traumatologi; serology; transplantation; Immunologi; serologi;

    Abstract : The expression of surface adhesion molecules on white blood cells (WBC) and platelets, and the release of tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-a) and interleukin-6 (IL-6) after incubation with expanded-polytetrafluoroethylene (ePTFE)- or woven Dacron grafts was determined. Both graft-materials induced alteration of the WBC adhesion molecule receptor and caused release of TNF-a and IL-6, higher for woven Dacron as compared to ePTFE. READ MORE

  3. 3. On cellular sources for intimal hyperplasia after vascular interventions

    University dissertation from P. Swartbol, Centrumplein 31, 7607 SB Almelo, The Netherlands

    Author : Stefan Mellander; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2007]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; intimal hyperplasia; vascular intervention; smooth muscle cell; blood-born mononuclear cell; prosthetic graft; balloon injury; pig; rabbit;

    Abstract : Vascular interventions for the treatment of symptomatic atherosclerosis fail in up to 40 % of the cases during the first year. One important reason is the development of a narrowing process known as intimal hyperplasia (IH). The cells forming IH resemble smooth muscle cells (SMCs) from the media of the arterial wall.

  4. 4. Thrombolysis in vascular surgery

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Molecular Medicine and Surgery

    Author : Linn Smith; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2015]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Background and aims: Thrombolysis is in common use in the treatment of acute forms of vascular disease. It may be used both systemically and locally, in the latter case through an endovascular approach, socalled catheter-directed thrombolysis. READ MORE

  5. 5. Vascular Wall Responses to Bypass Grafting - Studies in Mice

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Molecular Medicine and Surgery

    Author : Klas Österberg; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2008]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Intimal hyperplasia; graft stenosis; smooth muscle cells; mice; cellular recruitment;

    Abstract : Abstract Vein grafts are frequently used in bypass surgery for treatment of coronary artery disease and lower limb ischemia. Unfortunately the long-term patency is impaired by vein graft stenoses due to intimal hyperplasia (IH). It is assumed that exaggerated intimal thickening is initiated by vessel wall injuries or local flow disturbances. READ MORE
