    Sammanfattning : The prevalence of spasticity after first-ever stroke is approximately 20%, but there are no data on the prevalence of disabling spasticity.The reported prevalence of pain after stroke varies between 19% and 74%, whether pain is associated with spasticity is not known. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Surgical restoration of grasp control in tetraplegia

    Detta är en avhandling från Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Författare :Carina Reinholdt; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2013]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; tetraplegia; tendon transfers; alphabet procedure; spasticity; grip and release; electrogoniometry; distal intrinsic release; ECU-tenodesis; grip strength; intrisic tightness; pinch strength;

    Sammanfattning : Surgical Restoration of Grasp Control in Tetraplegia Carina Reinholdt Department of Orthopedics/Hand Surgery, Institute of Clinical Sciences, The Sahlgrenska Academy, University of Gothenburg, Göteborg, Sweden ABSTRACT Aim: The overall aim of this thesis was to improve the grasp and release function of patients with tetraplegia undergoing reconstructive hand surgery. In order to reach this objective, new and more cost-efficient surgical concepts with maintained patient safety were designed. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Tendon transfer mechanics and donor muscle properties implications in surgical correction of upper limb muscle imbalance

    Detta är en avhandling från Integrativ medicinsk biologi

    Författare :Eva Pontén; Umeå universitet.; [2003]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; laser diffraction; sarcomere length; tendon transfer; spasticity; muscle morphology; myosin heavy chain; capillary; rabbit; human; cerebral palsy; stroke; handkirurgi; handkirurgi;

    Sammanfattning : Tendon transfer surgery is used to improve the hand function of patients with nerve injuries, spinal cord lesions, cerebral palsy (CP), stroke, or muscle injuries. The tendon of a muscle, usually with function opposite that of the lost muscle function, is transferred to the tendon of the deficient muscle. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Life after Subarachnoid Hemorrhage

    Detta är en avhandling från Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Författare :Svante Wallmark; Uppsala universitet.; [2016]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Aneurysmal; Attention deficit; Cognitive impairment; Family medicine; Follow-up appointments; General practice; Intracranial aneurysm; Outcome; Primary care; Primary health care; Return to work; Spasticity; Stroke; Subarachnoid hemorrhage; Sweden; Neurokirurgi; Neurosurgery;

    Sammanfattning : Aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) is a devastating disease with mean age of 59 years. SAH accounts for 5% of all stroke and more than one quarter of potential life years lost through stroke. With the advanced neurosurgical methods of today two thirds of the patients survive. LÄS MER

  5. 5. MUSCLE TONE IMBALANCE IN HUMAN UPPER EXTREMITY An experimental study of muscle adaptation to altered tension

    Detta är en avhandling från Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Författare :Fredrik Einarsson; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2008]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; muscle biopsy; freeze storage; upper extremity; shoulder; human muscle; sarcomere; stress-strain relationship; stress relaxation; stiffness; elasticity; mechanical testing; morphology; spasticity; obstetric brachial plexus palsy; rotator cuff tear; tendon transfer;

    Sammanfattning : Aim: The aim of this thesis was to improve outcome after tendon transfer and rotator cuff surgery by investigating the impact on response to passive mechanical testing and change in structural characteristics associated with longstanding changes in the tension of skeletal muscle in the human upper extremities in vivo. Patients and methods: The investigational method was in vitro assessment of human upper extremity muscles. LÄS MER
