    Sammanfattning : The aim of the work presented in this thesis was to investigate how transvaginal ultrasound examination of non-pregnant women could be used to visualize and assess caesarean hysterotomy scars, and to evaluate the risk of uterine rupture in subsequent pregnancies. The diagnostic value of transvaginal ultrasound for correct evaluation of caesarean hysterotomy scars was determined, and the prevalence of defective scars was estimated. LÄS MER

  2. 22. Magnetic Resonance Imaging of Myocardial Deformation and Scarring in Coronary Artery Disease

    Författare :Johan Kihlberg; Jan Engvall; Tino Ebbers; Anders Persson; Åse Johnsson; Linköpings universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Sammanfattning : Although improved treatments have reduced the rates of acute complications from myocardial infarction, sequelae such as heart failure and sudden death threaten the future wellbeing of those patients. Secondary prevention after myocardial infarction is related to cardiovascular risk factors and the effect of the infarct on left ventricular function. LÄS MER

  3. 23. Studying the healing and long-term outcomes of two partial thickness wound models using different wound dressings

    Författare :Matilda Karlsson; Folke Sjöberg; Moustafa Elmasry; Pia Olofsson; Christina Lindholm; Linköpings universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Sammanfattning : Background: Safe and effective wound dressing treatments are important for proper wound healing. Such procedures therefore need to be evidence-based regarding the most important outcome measures such as healing time, less discomfort for the patient, duration of hospital care and, importantly, less scarring.

  4. 24. Root-knot nematodes and coffee in Nicaragua : management systems, species identification and genetic diversity

    Författare :Isabel Cristina Herrera Sirias; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet; []
    Nyckelord :LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES;

    Sammanfattning : The coffee production is affected by several limiting factors such as parasitic nematodes. Plant-parasitic nematodes have a substantial economic impact on coffee production in most countries and they are regarded as one of the major limiting factors in coffee production and worldwide coffee losses have been estimated to about 15%.

  5. 25. Generation of functional neural progenitors for spinal cord transplantation

    Författare :Jan Hoeber; Elena Kozlova; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Regenerative Neurobiology; Stem cells; Sensory regeneration; Spinal cord injury; Neuroscience; Neurovetenskap;

    Sammanfattning : Dorsal root avulsion injuries result in permanent impairment of sensory functions due to the disconnection of the peripheral nervous system from the spinal cord. Strategies aiming for the functional reconnection of sensory neurons with their targets in the spinal cord dorsal horn need to overcome the axonal growth non-permissive glial scar and provide a growth promoting environment.
