  1. 1. Expression and function of vascular estrogen receptors alpha and beta

    University dissertation from Min Liang, BMC F12, 221 84 Lund, Sweden

    Author : Min Liang; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2004]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Endocrinology; secreting systems; diabetologi; diabetology; Endokrinologi; sekretion; ubiquitin-proteasome pathway; MIP-2; MCP-1; iNOS; estrogen receptor knockout; estrogen receptor; aorta; estrogen;

    Abstract : Estrogen receptors (ER) are expressed not only in classical target organs for estrogen like breast and uterus, but also in male reproductive system as well as in non-reproductive organs such as brain, liver and bone. The functions of ER are quite well known in reproductive organs but less information is available regarding their function in vascular tissue. READ MORE

  2. 2. Three-dimensional ultrasound studies of normal and abnormal ovaries

    University dissertation from Department of Clinical Sciences, Lund University

    Author : Ligita Jokubkiene; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2012]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; ovary; ovarian follicle; ovarian neoplasms; ultrasonography; three-dimensional imaging; Doppler ultrasound imaging; vascular morphology;

    Abstract : The aims of this work were: 1) to estimate the number of follicles, ovarian volume and power Doppler vascular indices and their changes with age using three-dimensional (3D) transvaginal grey-scale and power Doppler ultrasound in asymptomatic women of fertile age either with natural menstrual cycles or using combined oral contraceptives, and 2) to determine whether tumour vascularity, assessed by 3D power Doppler ultrasound, can help discriminate between benign and malignant ovarian tumours. A group of 303 gynaecologically asymptomatic women, aged 20–39 years with normal menstrual cycles (NMC) and another group of 213 women aged 20–39 years using combined oral contraceptives (COC) were examined using two-dimensional (2D) and 3D transvaginal ultrasound once between cycle day 4 and 8.

  3. 3. Visual function and ocular morphology in children with surgically treated hydrocephalus

    University dissertation from Department of Clinical Sciences, Lund University

    Author : Susann Andersson; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2011]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; vision; hydrocephalus; ocular morphology; children;

    Abstract : Abstract Aims To investigate the frequency of ophthalmological abnormalities, the need and timing of eye-care interventions as well as incidence, aetiology and neurological/neuropsychological outcomes in children with hydrocephalus needing surgical treatment during the first year of life. Patients and Methods Papers I & II: Seventy-five school-aged children (34 girls and 41 boys) with surgically treated hydrocephalus and 140 age and sex matched control participants underwent a comprehensive ophthalmologic examination including structured history taking regarding visual perceptual problems and ocular fundus photography.

  4. 4. Shock wave effects on the vascular endothelium

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Karolinska Institutet, Stockholm Söder Hospital

    Author : Anders Sondén; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2002]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Shock waves; cavitation; explosions; high-energy missile trauma; ESWL; laser; endothelial cells; cell membrane damage; cytoskeleton; adhesion molecules; reactive oxygen species;

    Abstract : A shock wave is a pressure wave with high amplitude and a velocity above sound. Man is exposed to shock waves (SWs) in connection with trauma, e.g. explosions and high-energy missiles and medical treatments such as extracorporeal lithotripsy (ESWL). READ MORE

  5. 5. Vascular related pathologies in cardiovascular disease and cancer

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Medicine, Solna

    Author : Sharan Ananthaseshan; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2017]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Cardiovascular disease (CVD) and cancer are the leading causes of death worldwide. A damaged endothelium is one of the factors contributing towards these diseases. This thesis focused on understanding the implications of alterations to the physiological endothelium resulting in pathologies related to vascular disease and cancer metastasis. READ MORE
