  1. 1. Liver metastases from colorectal cancer. Different strategies and outcomes

    Författare :Valentinus Valdimarsson; Lund Kirurgi; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Liver metastases; Colorectal Neoplasms; Hepatectomy; Mortality; Treatment outcome; Retrospective studies; Sweden; Registries; Volume measurements; Repeat hepatectomy; liver surgery; Functional liver volume; Repeated operation; Recurrence;

    Sammanfattning : Patients with colorectal liver metastases (CRLM) increasingly undergo liver resections. The belief is that the resection or ablation of a tumor, when possible, is the only possibility of a cure. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Liver tissue characterization and influence of chemotherapy in liver surgery

    Författare :Jan Nilsson; Lund Kirurgi; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; colorectal liver metastases; liver regeneration; incisional hernia; steatosis; hepatic microcirculation; diffuse reflectance spectroscopy; DRS; sidestream dark-field imaging; SDF; laser speckle contrast imaging; LSCI;

    Sammanfattning : Background & Aims: Primary liver cancer is the second most common cause of death from cancer worldwide. In the western world, the majority of liver malignancies consist of colorectal metastases. Liver resection is the primary treatment for cure in liver tumor disease. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Liver regeneration and function following portal vein occlusion and hepatectomy

    Författare :Ernesto Sparrelid; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Sammanfattning : Background: Portal vein occlusion (PVO) and associating liver partition and portal vein ligation for staged hepatectomy (ALPPS) are two strategies employed to render patients with unresectable liver tumours resectable by increasing the size of the future liver remnant (FLR). There is still limited knowledge about several aspects of PVO and most aspects of ALPPS. LÄS MER

  4. 4. In vivo regulation of pancreatic beta cell function

    Författare :Pim Pieter van Krieken; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Sammanfattning : Pancreatic beta cells within the islets of Langerhans contribute to the regulation of glucose homeostasis by secretion of insulin, a hormone that stimulates the uptake of glucose by liver, muscle and fat tissue. In response to variations in insulin demand, the beta cell population can adapt by (1) changing the total beta cell mass, and (2) modulating the functional capacity of individual beta cells. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Imaging Islets of Langerhans by Positron Emission Tomography : Quantification of Beta-Cell Mass in the Native Pancreas and the Islet Graft

    Författare :Olof Eriksson; Anders Sundin; Olle Korsgren; Bengt Långström; Bo Nilsson; Håkan Ahlström; Habib Zaidi; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :Positron Emission Tomography; [18F]FDG; dihydrotetrabenazine; Islet transplantation; IBMIR; beta-cell mass; MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Sammanfattning : Type 1 and 2 Diabetes Mellitus are a growing health problem throughout the world. There is an increasing  need for methodologies, which are both reliable and non-invasive to measure the amount of insulin-producing tissue (Beta-cell mass, or BCM), as well as rapidly quantify changes in the BCM due to the onset of disease, beta-cell replacement therapy, or other treatments.
