    Sammanfattning : Thermal endometrial destruction by means of a silicone balloon catheter is a new form of treatment for menorrhagia aimed at reducing menstrual blood loss. The purpose of the present work was to study, experimentally, the thermal effects on and the thermal conductivity of uterine tissue, to obtain a basis for the estimation of optimal treatment conditions by means of numerical analyses using a computer simulation model, to elucidate possible problems which may arise during the procedure, to evaluate how the patients tolerated this treatment and to judge which patients were suitable for this form of treatment and, finally, to study the uterine cavity after treatment and the long-term results of treatment.

    Sammanfattning : Local treatment with the aim to destruct tissue by heating (thermotherapy) may in some cases be an alternative or complement to surgical methods, and has gained increased interest during the last decade. The major advantage of these, often minimally-invasive methods, is that the disease can be controlled with reduced treatment trauma and complications. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Idiopathic menorrhagia : Studies of angiogenesis and surgical therapy

    Sammanfattning : Background Excessive menstrual bleeding, menorrhagia (i.e. > 80 nil loss of blood) is a com-mon gynecological problem in women of reproductive age, accounting for over 20% of visits to gynecology outpatient clinics. The disorder may not only cause iron deficiency anemia but also considerable social discomfort and reduction in the quality of life. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Aspects on menstrual physiology, pathology and medical treatment of menorrhagia

    Författare :Måns Edlund; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; Menstruation; endometrium; coiled arteries; endothelin; vasoconstriction; progesterone withdrawal; menorrhagia; bleeding disorder; von Willebrand Disease; fibrinolysis; tranexamic acid; desmopressin; platelet dysfunction; thrombin.;

    Sammanfattning : Menstruation is the monthly process by which the endometrium in fertile women is discarded if no pregnancy occurs. The physiology and pathology of menstruation has been extensively studied; still several steps are not fully understood. Menorrhagia, heavy regular menstrual bleeding, is a gynaecological symptom of disease. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Methods in pharmacoepidemiology : Four Studies, four Settings

    Författare :Anders Sundström; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Sammanfattning : In the present thesis, four studies using four different settings and designs are presented in which associations between pharmacological treatments and possible adverse drug reactions are investigated; some methodological considerations identified in them are discussed. In a population-based case-control study, using information from telephone interviews, the association between use of acid-suppressing drugs and the development of acute pancreatitis was investigated.
