  1. 1. Laryngopharyngeal reflux - development and refinement of diagnostic tools

    Författare :Olle Andersson; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2009]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; reflux; pH-monitoring; validation; questionnaires; larynx; hypopharynx;

    Sammanfattning : Laryngopharyngeal reflux (LPR), characterized by symptoms of chronic cough, hoarseness, throat clearing, globus, laryngospasm, throat pain and excessive mucus has in recent years been recognized as an extra-esophageal manifestation of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). There are still many questions to be answered regarding how to diagnose the LPR disease and how to effectively select patients that may benefit from treatment. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Photodynamic therapy in the head and neck

    Detta är en avhandling från Örebro : Örebro university

    Författare :Mathias von Beckerath; Örebro universitet.; [2014]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Photo Dynamic Therapy; Cancer; Skin; Larynx; 5-ALA; UVradiation; sarcoma; squamous cell carcinoma; porfimer sodium; temoporfin; voice; Surgery; Kirurgi;

    Sammanfattning : Photodynamic therapy, PDT, is a method to diagnose and treat cancer. In PDT a sensitizer is administered to the patient and this sensitizer is accumulated in tumors. If the sensitizer-containing tumor is subjected to a laser of a specific wavelength the tumor is fluorescing allowing diagnostics. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Regenerative medicine of the airway cartilage : A morphological and immunohistochemical study with focus on cricoid cartilage defects treated with BMP-2

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Clinical Sciences

    Författare :Ion Tcacencu; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2005]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Larynx; growth factor; wound healing; perichondrium; progenitor cells; osteogenesis; growth plate.;

    Sammanfattning : Background. Cartilage provides flexible support for upper airway. Induction of cartilage healing is required for the success of many surgical interventions in the head and neck that are used as treatments for several diseases, such as subglottic stenosis and tumors of the larynx and thyroid.

  4. 4. Mast cells and neuropeptides in the rat laryngeal mucosa : Edema formation and effects of irradiation

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, false

    Författare :Mats Lidegran; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [1998]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Sammanfattning : Certain diseases in the larynx like epiglottitis, false croup, and allergic reactions lead to local edema, which may result in respiratory distress. The pathophysiology of the various types of edema in the larynx is mainly unknown. LÄS MER

  5. 5. The laryngeal mucosa and the superior laryngeal nerve of the rat an immunohistochemical and electron microscopic study

    Detta är en avhandling från Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Författare :Siw Domeij; Umeå universitet.; [1990]
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Superior laryngeal nerve; paraganglia; substance P; calcitonin gene-related peptide; neuropeptide Y; vasoactive intestinal polypeptide; enkephalin; mast cells; electron microscopy; immunohistochemistry;

    Sammanfattning : Neuropeptides are present in nerve fibers of the upper and lower airways. Local release of these substances may be of importance for the pathophysiology of airway disorders and may play a role in responses to different stimuli. However, little is known about the distribution of neuropeptides in the larynx. LÄS MER
