Sammanfattning : In patients with drug resistant partial epilepsy, who are under consideration for epilepsy surgery, interictal and ictal EEG recorded with extracranial electrodes plays an important role in the localisation of the seizure onset area. During the past years, methods have been developed, which can be used to estimate the location of the source of epileptiform activity in the brain from extracranial EEG data. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Extracranial carotid artery disease, mainly due to atherosclerosis, is a common cause of stroke. The risk for future stroke can be reduced in selected patients by carotid endarterectomy (CEA). Duplex scanning has been increasingly used for diagnosis of carotid artery disease. LÄS MER
3. The Association Between Beta-Blockade and Clinical Outcomes in the Context of Surgical and Traumatic Stress
Sammanfattning : Traumatic injury and major abdominal surgery are areas in general surgery associated with high rates of morbidity and mortality. The overall colorectal cancer surgery mortality rate is around 4%, with that for emergency surgery more than twice as high as for planned. Surgical morbidity varies between 25% and 45%. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Neuroblastoma (NB) is the most frequently diagnosed extracranial tumour in children, which arises from transient embryonal tissue of the neural crest that fails to complete terminal differentiation into neurons. Even after completion of successful therapy, high risk neuroblastoma patients typically suffer from post-treatment induced toxicity which impacts on their ability to lead a normal life. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Apoptosis is one of the modes of programmed cell death, in which several members of the caspase family of proteases play the central role. However, activation of apoptotic caspases does not necessarily lead to cell death. LÄS MER
