  1. 1. Long-term outcome of lumbar disc herniation surgery. Studies on different influencing factors

    Författare :Katarina Silverplats; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Lumbar disc herniation surgery; clinical outcome; long-term follow-up; scar formation; expectation; satisfaction; predictive factors; health related quality of life HRQoL ;

    Sammanfattning : Background: A majority of patients suffering from sciatica caused by lumbar disc herniation experience a positive natural history and respond well to non-surgical treatment. Patients who fail conservative treatment and are treated surgically have been reported to get satisfactory result in about 70-90% in short-term (1-2 year) follow-up. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Functions of Pericytes in Ischemic Stroke

    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Stroke; Pericytes; RGS5; Blood-brain barrier; vascular remodelling; scar formation;

    Sammanfattning : Ischemic stroke remains one of the leading causes of death and disability worldwide, and its burden is predicted to further increase due to the aging population. The only available treatments, thrombolysis or thrombectomy, can only be applied within a limited time window after stroke onset, and thus are applicable only to a small proportion of stroke patients.

  3. 3. To scar or not to scar : origin and function of fibrotic tissue in the central nervous system

    Författare :David Oliveira Dias; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Sammanfattning : After injury, the adult mammalian central nervous system lacks long-distance axon regeneration, and insufficient repair results in the formation of a multicellular and compartmentalized scar. A great body of work has been dedicated to the study of the glial component of the scar, while the fibrotic lesion core has received less attention. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Impaired reparative processes in particular related to hyaluronan in various cutaneous disorders : a structural analysis

    Författare :Ulf Bertheim; Bengt Gerdin; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :hyaluronan; scar tissue; diabetes mellitus; basal cell carcinoma; skin; wound healing; Oto-Rhino-Laryngology; oto-rhino-laryngologi;

    Sammanfattning : Cutaneous reparative processes, including wound healing, are highly developed procedures in which a chain of actions occurs to reconstitute the function of the wounded tissue. To prevent a delayed or excessive reparative process it is important to understand how this procedure develops and is maintained. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Isolation and characterization of adult neural stem cells

    Författare :Clas B Johansson; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; Intermediate filaments; GFAP; nestin; scar formation; regeneration; rodent and human neural stem cells; multipotency.;

    Sammanfattning : Injury to the central nervous system (CNS) is one of man's most handicapping situations resulting in severe functional impairment and in some cases a vegetative state where life is supported artificially. The brain and spinal cord, constituting the CNS, have been viewed for decades as having limited capacity of regeneration with no neurogenesis in the adult. LÄS MER
