    Psychotic disorders such as schizophrenia maintain a 1% point prevalence in society at large. They cause much suffering to the patients and exact grave costs on society. There is an urgent need for better diagnosis and ...
  • Prognosis following cancer surgery during holiday periods 

    Lagergren, Jesper; Lagergren, Pernilla; Mattsson, Fredrik (Inst för molekylär medicin och kirurgi / Dept of Molecular Medicine and Surgery, 2018-10-19)
  • Weekday of cancer surgery in relation to prognosis 

    Lagergren, Jesper; Mattson, Fredrik; Lagergren, Pernilla (Inst för molekylär medicin och kirurgi / Dept of Molecular Medicine and Surgery, 2018-10-11)
    BACKGROUND: Later weekday of surgery seems to affect the prognosis adversely in oesophageal cancer, whereas any such influence on other cancer sites is unknown. This study aimed to test whether weekday of surgery influenced ...
  • Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) for the treatment of cardiogenic shock : identification of pre-implant outcome predictors 

    Fux, Thomas (Inst för molekylär medicin och kirurgi / Dept of Molecular Medicine and Surgery, 2018-10-11)
    Background: Refractory cardiogenic shock (RCS), cardiac arrest (CA) and postarrest cardiogenic shock (CS) are associated with high mortality. Venoarterial extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (VA-ECMO) is increasingly used ...
  • Prosthetic aortic heart valves 

    Glaser, Natalie (Inst för molekylär medicin och kirurgi / Dept of Molecular Medicine and Surgery, 2018-08-21)
    Background Aortic valve replacement (AVR) can be performed with different types of valve prostheses. There is no perfect aortic valve prosthesis, and the prosthetic choice for each patient requires careful consideration. ...
  • Expanding the genetic and phenotypic spectrum of skeletal dysplasias 

    Hammarsjö, Anna (Inst för molekylär medicin och kirurgi / Dept of Molecular Medicine and Surgery, 2018-08-17)
    Skeletal dysplasias constitute a large and heterogeneous group of disorders, many causing disabilities with profound effects on the quality of life of the affected individuals and their families. Each individual skeletal ...
  • Improving surgical therapy for oesophageal cancer 

    Markar, Sheraz Rehan (Inst för molekylär medicin och kirurgi / Dept of Molecular Medicine and Surgery, 2018-08-14)
    Despite advances in multimodality treatment, surgery remains the mainstay of curative treatment for oesophageal cancer. However short- and long-term mortality from oesophagectomy for oesophageal cancer still shows large ...
  • Pulmonary hypertension : the role and place of PDGF 

    Tannenberg, Philip (Inst för molekylär medicin och kirurgi / Dept of Molecular Medicine and Surgery, 2018-05-25)
