  1. 1. Parietal cell regeneration in rat gastric mucosal wounds : a quantitative light and electron microscopical study

    Author : Håkan Blom; Herbert Helander; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Rat; gastric mucosa; gastric wounds; parietal cells; re­generation; pyloroplasty; truncal vagotomy; antrectomy; pen­tagastrin; cimetidine; carbacholine; stereology; light microscopy; electron microscopy; pH-studies;

    Abstract : The aims of the study were to obtain a method with which it would be possible to produce standardized wounds in the gastric mucosa, and to follow the regeneration of the acid producing parietal cells in those lesions during different experimental conditions. Quantitative methods applied to light and electron microscopy were used. READ MORE

  2. 2. A path along deep learning for medical image analysis : With focus on burn wounds and brain tumors

    Author : Marco Domenico Cirillo; Anders Eklund; Veronika Cheplygina; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Deep learning; Medical image analysis; Burn wounds; Brain tumors; Image classification; Image segmentation; Image augmentation; CNNs; GANs;

    Abstract : The number of medical images that clinicians need to review on a daily basis has increased dramatically during the last decades. Since the number of clinicians has not increased as much, it is necessary to develop tools which can help doctors to work more efficiently. READ MORE

  3. 3. Negative Pressure Wound Therapy - Mechanisms of Action and Protecting Exposed Blood Vessels in the Wound Bed

    Author : Erik Anesäter; Thoraxkirurgi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Negative pressure wound therapy; wounds; complications; experimental surgery; blood flow;

    Abstract : NPWT has recently been associated with severe complications and bleeding when used in wounds with exposed blood vessels. The aims of this work were to investigate the mechanisms of action of NPWT and to explore the possibility of using thin plastic discs to protect exposed blood vessels in the wound bed during NPWT.

  4. 4. Studies of chronic ulcers and larval therapy

    Author : Helene Wolff; Göteborgs universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; chronic ulcers; wounds; larval therapy maggot; MRSA; debriding; proteases; larval therapy; maggot; debriding. proteases;

    Abstract : Our aims in this study were to learn more about chronic ulcer pathogenesis (Paper I) and larval therapy (Paper II-V).Materials and methods: Paper I: 26 bacterial isolates of P. aeruginosa from chronic ulcers were examined by PCR technique for detection of the genes of two virulence factors (elastase and alkaline proteinase).

  5. 5. Negative Pressure Wound Therapy - Effects on Sternotomy Wounds and the Intrathoracic Organs

    Author : Christian Torbrand; Lund Oftalmologi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; NPWT; negative pressure; vacuum-assisted closure; sternotomy wounds; deep sternal wound infection; mediastinitis; thoracic surgery; pressure transduction; neurohormones; neuropeptides; total heart volume variation; cardiac output; wound contraction; macrodeformation;

    Abstract : Negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) has been widely adopted for the treatment of deep sternal wound infections due to its excellent clinical outcome. However, the mechanisms of action and effects on hemodynamics have not been thoroughly elucidated. READ MORE
