  1. 1. Medical Treatment and Grading of Bell's Palsy

    Författare :Thomas Berg; Mats Holmström; Lars Jonsson; Mats Engström; Dan Bagger-Sjöbäck; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Bell s palsy; facial grading; prednisolone; valaciclovir; Sunnybrook; House-Brackmann; Yanagihara; last observation carried forward; complete-case analysis; Otorhinolaryngology; Otorhinolaryngologi; Oto-Rhino-Laryngology; oto-rhino-laryngologi;

    Sammanfattning : The main aim of this thesis was to evaluate the effect of prednisolone and valaciclovir in a large number of Bell's palsy patients. The incidence and intensity of pain around the ear, in the face or in the neck during the first two months of palsy, and its prognostic value, was also assessed. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Magnetic resonance imaging, electroneurographic, and clinical findings in Bell's palsy

    Författare :Mats Engström; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Surgery; Bell s palsy; facial nerve; magnetic resonance imaging; gadolinium; electroneurography; clinical grading; neurapraxia; nerve degeneration; prognostication; Kirurgi; Surgery; Kirurgi; Oto-Rhino-Laryngology; oto-rhino-laryngologi;

    Sammanfattning : Seventy-two patients were examined in order to learn more about the pathophysiology of Bell's palsy and to assess the value of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) as well as electroneurographic and clinical tests in predicting the outcome in patients with this disease.In 12 of 20 patients (60%) an increased signal intensity in the paranasal sinuses was evident on T2-weighted MRI scans in the early stage of palsy, and in six of the positive patients the high signal intensity had disappeared by the time of the follow-up examination.

  3. 3. Matematiska resonemang i en lärandemiljö med dynamiska matematikprogram

    Författare :Mats Brunström; Kenneth Ruthven; Arne Engström; Anne Berit Fuglestad; Karlstads universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Mathematical reasoning; Task design; Dynamic mathematics software; matematiska resonemang; uppgiftsdesign; dynamiska matematikprogram; Matematik; Mathematics;

    Sammanfattning : The overall problem that formed the basis for this thesis is that students get limited opportunity to develop their mathematical reasoning ability while, at the same time, there are dynamic mathematics software available which can be used to foster this ability. The aim of this thesis is to contribute to knowledge in this area by focusing on task design in a dynamic software environment and by studying the reasoning that emerges when students work on tasks in such an environment.

    Sammanfattning : Surface gravity waves in the world’s oceans contain a renewable source of free power on the order of terawatts that has to this date not been commercially utilized. The division of Electricity at Uppsala University is developing a technology to harvest this energy. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Irritable Bowel Syndrome : Studies of central pathophysiological mechanisms and effects of treatment

    Författare :Mats Lowén; Susanna Walter; Magnus Ström; Maria Engström; Sigrid Elsenbruch; Linköpings universitet; []

    Sammanfattning : Background and aimsIrritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a common gastrointestinal disorder characterized by abdominal pain and altered bowel habits. The societal costs of the disorder are significant, as are its negative effects on quality of life. LÄS MER
