  1. 1. Feedback thermotherapy for benign prostatic enlargement : A clinical and methodological evaluation

    Författare :Lennart Wagrell; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Surgery; benign prostatic hyperplasia; transurethral microwave thermotherapy; feed-back thermotherapy; intraprostatic blood-flow; intraprostatic temperature; bladderneck; PET; Kirurgi; Surgery; Kirurgi; kirurgi; särskilt urologi; Urology;

    Sammanfattning : The purpose of this thesis was to evaluate a new treatment strategy for symptomatic benign prostatic enlargement.The transurethral thermotherapy (TUMT) antenna design was studied. The design influences the heating-profile significantly and the absorbed energy in a target volume were only about 13-20% of the energy delivered. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Development of Feedback Microwave Thermotherapy in Symptomatic Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia

    Författare :Sonny Schelin; Urologi; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; nephrology; Urologi; nefrologi; Urology; PET; Schelin Catheter; epinephrine; local anaesthetics; microwave thermotherapy; intraprostatic blood flow; PLFT; Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia; intraprostatic temperature; CoreTherm;

    Sammanfattning : Abstract: The purpose of this thesis was to evaluate ProstaLund Feedback Treatment® (PLFT®) and the CoreTherm® device with regard to biophysics, mechanisms of action, treatment indications, additional techniques, efficacy and safety in the treatment of patients with benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). The application of two biophysical equations in the PLFT software is explained. LÄS MER

  3. 3. On the natural history, diagnosis and treatment of benign prostatic hyperplasia

    Författare :Stepan Vesely; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :Lower urinary tract symptoms LUTS ; benign prostatic hyperplasia BPH ; bladder outlet obstruction; transurethral prostatectomy TURP ; transurethral microwave thermotherapy TUMT ;

    Sammanfattning : There are a number of important issues which remain unknown or poorly understood in the natural history of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). The standard investigation of patients with BPH gives controversial results in relation to the severity of lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS). LÄS MER

  4. 4. Sleep and quality of life in men with lower urinary tract symptoms : and their partners

    Författare :Helén Marklund-Bau; Ulla Edéll-Gustafsson; Anders Spångberg; Ralf Peeker; Linköpings universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Benign prostatic hyperplasia; Benign prostatic obstruction; Disease specific quality of life; Health related quality of life; Inguinal hernia; Insomnia; Lower urinary tract symptoms; Population; Sleep disorders; Sleep quality; Urology and andrology; Urologi och andrologi;

    Sammanfattning : Aims: The overall aim was to determine how lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) suggestive of benign prostatic obstruction (BPO) affect sleep, health related quality of life and disease specific quality of life, and how the men’s urinary symptoms affect their partners.Subjects and methods: In papers I–II, a descriptive design with a pre-test and post-test was used and in papers III-IV the design was descriptive and comparative.

  5. 5. Spridning och ekonomiska effekter av medicinsk teknologi vid behandling av magsår, prostataförstoring och gallsten

    Författare :Per Carlsson; Linköpings universitet; []
    Nyckelord :SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Technology assessment; Economic evaluation; Diffusion of medical technology; Peptic Ulcer; Prostatic Hyperplasia; Gallstone disease; INTERDISCIPLINARY RESEARCH AREAS; TVÄRVETENSKAPLIGA FORSKNINGSOMRÅDEN;

    Sammanfattning : The general aim of the study is to analyse the economic consequences of diffusion and changed utilization of medical technology. The intention is to widen the empirical basis prospects for assessing the future consequences of technologies other than those studied within the scope of this project. LÄS MER
