    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; amyloidosis; electromyogram; malabsorption syndrome; gastric acid; gastroscopy; radioisotopes; radiography; intestinal mucosa;

    Sammanfattning : Familial Amyloidosis with Polyneuropathy was first recognized in Portugal and reported by Andrade in 1952. The disease is rare, but clustering of the patients has been reported from Portugal, Japan and northern Sweden. The gastrointestinal involvement in the Swedish form of the disease was studied in this investigation. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Gastric electrical stimulation. Studies in patients with intractable nausea and vomiting

    Författare :Stina Andersson; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :gastric electrical stimulation; gastroparesis; gastroscopy; vomiting; gastric accommodation; drinking test; dyspepsia;

    Sammanfattning : The most severe cases of gastroparesis are refractory to drugs. In the 1990s gastric electrical stimulation (GES) was introduced for treatment of nausea and vomiting in patients with diabetic and idiopathic gastroparesis. The electrodes and neurostimulator are usually placed with laparoscopy. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Barrett's oesophagus and metaplasia at the oesophagogastric junction : an epidemiological approach

    Författare :Johan Johansson; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; Barrett s oesophagus; body mass index; cardia; diagnosis; gastric mucosa; gastroscopy; gastrooesophageal reflux; Helicobacter pylori; histology; metaplasia; oesophagogastric junction. pancreatic acinar metaplasia; risk factors;

    Sammanfattning : The aims of this thesis were to estimate the prevalence of Barrett's oesophagus (B0) and related histological aberrations, to investigate agreement between endoscopy and histology regarding the diagnosis of BO and to investigate risk factors for BO paying particular attention to epidemiological aspects of the study design. We also investigated pancreatic acinar metaplasia (PAM) with special emphasis in its relation to gastro-oesophageal reflux and BO. LÄS MER

    Sammanfattning : Numerous studies have analyzed the critical factors for training in surgical endoscopy to ensure high performance and increased patient safety. There are, however, surprisingly few studies that focus on the role of cognitive abilities, especially considering the fact that an estimated 50% of allmedical errors that lead to permanent disability and death are the result of cognitive failures (Gawande, Zinner, Studdert & Biennen, 2003).
