OBJECTIVE To evaluate feasibility and morbidity of robot assisted laparoscopic radical hysterectomy. METHODS From December 2005 to September 2008 robot assisted laparoscopic radical hysterectomy and pelvic lymphadenectomy was performed on 80 women. Using a prospective protocol, and an active investigation policy for defined adverse events, perioperative,(More)
The aim of this prospective randomized multicenter study was to compare retropubic tension-free vaginal tape (TVT) with TVT Secur in terms of efficacy and safety. We set out to enrol 280 stress urinary incontinent (SUI) women with a half-time interim analysis of short-term cure and adverse events. The short-term results have previously been published. Of(More)
In 1991, soil samples were taken from the long-term (40 years old) field trial at Ultuna in order to investigate soil P status and the distribution of its various forms. Among the treatments investigated, two were inorganic PK additions only – one to continuous fallow (PK-fallow) and the other to cropped fields (PK). There were also treatments amended with(More)
BACKGROUND For local anesthetics, the process of removal from the site of administration influences the duration of anesthesia and the risk for systemic toxicity to develop. The systemic absorption of epidural ropivacaine and the time profile of sensory and motor block were studied in healthy volunteers. METHODS Nine persons simultaneously received 150 mg(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate obstetric and maternal risk factors for stress urinary incontinence. METHODS We linked three national, Swedish, population-based registries with the use of unique personal identification numbers. All women born between 1932 and 1977 and operated on for stress urinary incontinence between 1987 and 1996 were identified from the(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of the study was to evaluate the sentinel node (SLN) concept for lymphatic mapping in early stage cervical cancer. METHODS 105 women with early stage (1a1-2a) cervical cancer were scheduled for the sentinel node procedure in conjunction with a complete pelvic lymphadenectomy. The day before surgery, 1-1.5 mL 120MBq Tc(99) albumin(More)
We assessed the reproducibility and feasibility of a rapid perineal pad-test designed for evaluation of stress urinary incontinence treatment. In an experimental study, we included 34 women with genuine stress incontinence, 13 with urge incontinence and 10 non-incontinent volunteers for a repeated pad-test with a standardized bladder volume (300 mL) and a(More)
BACKGROUND Radical trachelectomy in conjunction with pelvic lymphadenectomy is an established method to preserve fertility in early cases of cervical cancer. The radical trachelectomy is usually performed vaginally despite the initial use of laparoscopy for the lymphadenectomy. The complexity of a laparoscopic abdominal trachelectomy may explain this dual(More)
BACKGROUND The effects of ketamine on respiration, alone, or in combination with opioids, have not been completely clarified. Both stimulant and depressant effects have been reported, as well as attenuation of opioid-induced hypoventilation at the expense of increased oxygen consumption. These conflicting results might partly be due to dose-dependent(More)
