  1. 1. Reconstruction of the RVOT with a conduit: Lifetime follow up

    Författare :Kristofer Skoglund; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :congenital heart disease; RVOT surgery; conduit; quality of life; outcome; TPVR;

    Sammanfattning : Background: The use of a conduit is an established surgical method for reconstruction of the right ventricular outflow tract in congenital heart disease. The most commonly used conduit is a homograft. Its limited durability makes reinterventions almost inevitable but the actual durability of a conduit in the adult population is poorly described.

  3. 3. Nerve gap repair by the use of artificial conduits and cultured cells

    Författare :Daniel Kalbermatten; Mikael Wiberg; Ulrich Mennen; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; adipose stem cells; cell matrix; fibrin; nerve conduit; nerve gap; Surgery; Kirurgi; kirurgi; Surgery;

    Sammanfattning : Peripheral nerve injuries are often associated with loss of nerve tissue and require autologous nerve grafts to provide a physical substrate for axonal growth. This thesis investigates the use of fibrin as both a tubular conduit to guide nerve regeneration and also as a matrix material to suspend various regenerative cell types within/on poly-3-hydroxybutyrate (PHB) nerve conduits.

  4. 4. Development of biosynthetic conduits for peripheral nerve repair

    Författare :Aleksandra McGrath; Liudmila N Novikova; John Haycock; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Biosynthetic conduit; Mesenchymal stem cells; Nerve graft; Nerve tissue engineering; Peripheral nerve injury; Schwann cells;

    Sammanfattning : Peripheral nerve injuries are often associated with significant loss of nervous tissue leading to poor restoration of function following repair of injured nerves. Although the injury gap could be bridged by autologous nerve graft, the limited access to donor material and additional morbidity such as loss of sensation and scarring have prompted a search for biosynthetic nerve transplants.

  5. 5. Sensory neuronal protection & improving regeneration after peripheral nerve injury

    Författare :Andrew McKay Hart; Mikael Wiberg; Angus McGrouther; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Neurosciences; cell death; TUNEL; optical disection; dorsal root ganglion; peripheral nerve; nerve conduit; Schwann cell; glial growth factor; leukaemia inhibitory factor; acetyl-L-carnitine; N-acetyl-cysteine; Neurovetenskap; Neurology; Neurologi; neurokirurgi; Neurosurgery;

    Sammanfattning : Peripheral nerve trauma is a common cause of considerable functional morbidity, and healthcare expenditure. Particularly in the ~15% of injuries unsuitable for primary repair, standard clinical management results in inadequate sensory restitution in the majority of cases, despite the rigorous application of complex microsurgical techniques.
