  4. 4. Radiological evaluation of esophageal function in dysphagia with special emphasis on achalasia

    Detta är en avhandling från Lund University, Faculty of Medicine

    Författare :Mats Andersson; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2008]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Achalasia; Dysphagia; Radiography; Barium esophagogram; Reproducibility of findings; Observer variation; Laparoscopic myotomy; Balloon dilatation; Esophageal neoplasms;

    Sammanfattning : In idiopathic achalasia, degeneration of the inhibitory innervation of the esophageal smooth muscle results in absence of primary peristalsis and in incomplete relaxation of the lower esophageal sphincter (LES). All treatments for achalasia aim at reducing the pressure gradient across the LES, thus facilitating esophageal emptying by gravity. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Exploring the role of rheology in bolus flow using an in-vitro approach

    Detta är en avhandling från ; Chalmers tekniska högskola; Gothenburg

    Författare :Muhammad Waqas; [2019]
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; extensional rheology; ultrasound viscometery; Bolus rheology; in vivo analysis; in vitro manometry; In-vitro simulations; degluitition; microstructure analysis; thickened fluids; Dysphagia;

    Sammanfattning : Swallowing disorders, termed ‘dysphagia’, are more common in the elderly but can also affect younger persons. Approximately, 8% of the world’s population suffers from dysphagia. A Texture Modified Diet (TMD), which increases bolus viscosity to adjust for the sluggish bolus handling mechanism, is the most common intervention. LÄS MER
