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

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

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.
