  1. 1. Cerebrospinal Fluid Shunts in Children Technical Considerations and Treatment of Certain Complications

    Detta är en avhandling från Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Författare :Kai Arnell; Uppsala universitet.; [2007]
    Nyckelord :Surgery; Hydrocephalus; papilloedema; abdominal cyst; cerebrospinal fluid shunt; shunt infection; intraventricular antibiotic instillation; intraventricular antibiotic concentrations; in-vitro testing; antisiphon device; Kirurgi;

    Sammanfattning : Ventriculo-peritoneal shunting is the most commonly used method for the treatment of paediatric hydrocephalus. Despite improved shunts and surgical techniques there are still complications. This retrospective study focuses on diagnoses and treatment of shunt malfunction and infections. Cost/benefit of using an adjustable shunt was assessed. LÄS MER

  2. 2. The neuropsychology of idiopathic normal pressure hydrocephalus

    Detta är en avhandling från Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Författare :Per Hellström; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2011]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Idiopathic normal pressure hydrocephalus; Neuropsychology; Prospective study; Shunt treatment; Treatment outcome; iNPH scale;

    Sammanfattning : Idiopathic normal pressure hydrocephalus (iNPH) is characterised by an active distension of the cerebral ventricles due to inadequate absorption of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) into the systemic circulation. The intracranial pressure is within normal limits, the passages between the ventricles and subarachnoid spaces are open, and there is an absence of identifiable antecedents known to reduce CSF absorption.

    Sammanfattning : Popular Abstract in Swedish Operationer för att dränera vätska från hjärnans hålrum för att sänka ett högt tryck i skallen är den mest förekommande operationstypen vid neurokirurgiska kliniken i Lund. Orsaken till det höga trycket är oftast hydrocefalus (vattenskalle p.g.a. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Treatment of Right Ventricular Failure through Partial Volume Exclusion An Experimental Study

    Detta är en avhandling från Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Författare :Per Vikholm; Uppsala universitet.; [2015]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Right Heart Failure; Left Ventricular Assist Device; Glenn shunt; Thorax Surgery; Thoraxkirurgi;

    Sammanfattning : Implantation of a left ventricular assist device (LVAD) is a potential treatment in terminal heart failure. Right ventricular (RV) failure is a severe complication in these patients and sometimes requires additional placement of a right ventricular assist device (RVAD). LÄS MER

  5. 5. Hydrocephalus in children. Epidemiology and outcome

    Detta är en avhandling från Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Författare :Eva-Karin Persson; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2007]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Prevalence; Epidemiology; Hydrocephalus; MMC; Treatment; Outcome;

    Sammanfattning : Aims: To analyse trends in the live-birth prevalence of infantile hydrocephalus and hydrocephalus associated with myelomeningocele (MMC) during the period 1989-2002 and to study the outcome in terms of learning disability, cerebral palsy, epilepsy and visual deficits. Another objective was to explore motor function and disability profiles in various aetiological and gestational-age subgroups and to see whether treatment complications and neuroradiological findings correlate with outcome.
