Multicentre prospective study of fascial closure rate after open abdomen with vacuum and mesh‐mediated fascial traction
Damage control surgery and temporary open abdomen (OA) have been adopted widely, in both trauma and non‐trauma situations. Several techniques for temporary abdominal closure have been developed. The… Expand

AIM To assess the lifetime cumulative incidence of portal venous thrombosis (PVT) in the general population. METHODS Between 1970 and 1982, 23,796 autopsies, representing 84% of all in-hospital… Expand
Vacuum-assisted Wound Closure and Mesh-mediated Fascial Traction—A Novel Technique for Late Closure of the Open Abdomen
BackgroundOpen abdomen (OA) treatment often results in difficulties in closing the abdomen. Highest closure rates are seen with the vacuum-assisted wound closure (VAWC) technique. However, we have… Expand
Current status on plasma biomarkers for acute mesenteric ischemia
Clinical diagnosis of acute mesenteric ischemia is difficult. The aim of this review is to provide current status on the search for an accurate plasma biomarker for acute mesenteric ischemia. A… Expand

The overall incidence rate of acute mesenteric ischemia between 1970 and 1982, diagnosed at either autopsy or operation, in the population of Malmö, Sweden was estimated at 12.9/100,000 person-years.… Expand
Epidemiology, risk and prognostic factors in mesenteric venous thrombosis
Epidemiological reports on risk and prognostic factors in patients with mesenteric venous thrombosis (MVT) are scarce.
D‐dimer testing in patients with suspected acute thromboembolic occlusion of the superior mesenteric artery
There is no accurate non‐invasive method available for the diagnosis of acute thromboembolic occlusion of the superior mesenteric artery (SMA). The aim of this study was to assess the diagnostic… Expand
Modern treatment of acute mesenteric ischaemia
Diagnosis of acute mesenteric ischaemia in the early stages is now possible with modern computed tomography (CT), using intravenous contrast enhancement and imaging in the arterial and/or portal… Expand
