1. Isolated regional perfusion for metastases of malignant melanoma - Clinical and experimental studies
Sammanfattning : Background: Isolated regional perfusion is a treatment option mainly for localized metastatic disease. The principle idea is to surgically isolate a region of the body and connect the circulation to a heart-lung machine. A high concentration of a chemotherapeutic agent is then delivered to the tumour, while systemic toxicity is avoided. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Malignant melanoma patients with metastatic disease confined to the limbs or liver may be treated with hyperthermic isolated regional perfusion with a chemotherapeutic agent, most commonly melphalan. This procedure enables much higher tissue concentrations of the chemotherapeutic agent compared with systemic administration. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Background: Cutaneous melanoma is a malignancy with an increasing incidence worldwide, especially in northern Europe. The aim of this thesis is to scrutinize the results achieved by traditional surgery and the opportunities offered by translational research for the more advanced stages of the disease. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Desmoid tumor (aggressive fibromatosis) is a rare, benign fibroblastic/myofibroblasticneoplasm that originates from musculoaponeurotic structures. It never metastasizes but locallygrows aggressively and infiltrates surrounding tissues. The treatment of choice has beensurgery. However, local recurrences are frequent. LÄS MER
