Experimental research of small bowel autotransplantation

experimental work

Small bowel transplantation is one of the most difficult tasks till now among abdominal organ transplantation. During both warm ischemia/reperfusion and cold preservation, several pathobiochemical processes need to be investigated to preserve the graft tissue structure and vasculature as much as possible after transplantation.

 

Participation in animal experiments, after obtaining sufficient practice, under supervision development and implementation of partial experiments. Participation in TDK conference, and in Hungarian surgical / experimental surgical congresses. Writing Diploma Work, writing scientific paper. Networking and acquisition of competencies in surgical skill and at some research levels.

Surgical scrub from Semmelweis to nowadays

theoretical work

Surgical scrub as an aseptic activity has been an important milestone in the development of operative professions, the completion of the surgical palette, and the radical reduction of patient mortality. We would like to present the history and main stages of its medical history in the light of literary data from Semmelweis to the present day.

 

Getting to know the scientific literature, exploring new connections. Writing Diploma Work and scientific paper. Networking and acquisition of competencies at the level of scientific communication.

Milestones of surgical bleeding control

theoretical work

Developments in haemostasis methods and techniques have also contributed to the intra- and postoperative mortality decrease in the development of surgery. War wounds and the experience gained during their care, the need for increasingly complex surgical interventions, and the development of technical and biological co-sciences also played a role in this. From a surgical point of view, we want to study the evolution of today’s haemostasis methods.

Investigation of magnamosis devices for minimally invasive paediatric surgery

experimental work

Minimally invasive procedures in infants and children, such as pyeloplasty, ureteral reimplantation, intestinal anastomosis or esophageal atresia repair, require more complex skills. The magnetic compression anastomosis technique (magnamosis) has been shown to be a viable, reliable and effective alternative to traditional intestinal anastomosis. We aim to test and refine this device and explore further applications of magnamosis in minimally invasive surgery.

Opportunities of digitization in surgical training

 

experimental work

Digitization has become a part of our everyday lives. Digital solutions have also integrated in education and medical training, but their integration into surgical residency training has recently begun in Hungary. The rapid development of information technology is an inexhaustible repository of scientific research. The aim of the topic is to exploit, apply and adapt the possibilities offered by different IT-based systems (simulators, virtual reality, e-learning, educational games, video games, applications, etc.) to surgical training at undergraduate and postgraduate levels.

 

Implementing and testing independent ideas at undergraduate and / or postgraduate level

Deeper knowledge and exploration of the topic (literature search)

Relationship with residents participating in surgical residency training, gaining experience, information (assisting in career choice)

Wound healing

research project

In this project, we would like to determine the role of fat cells and fibroblasts in the wound healing process. We will examine the activation of fat cells, the released molecules, the activation of fibroblasts, receptors, changing the extension and the components of the connective tissue, the vascularisation, the epithelization and the role of immune cells.  Topics:

1. The role of fibroblast transport on the wound healing

2. The role of the fat cells in the wound healing

Adhesion research

 

Adhesion formation occurs following a surgical operation, injury or inflammation. The damaged tissue is connected to another damaged tissue or an intact part of an organ, the omentum has an important role to cover the damaged area. The developed adhesion pulls closer the different tissues, inhibits the normal motility, and the tension causes pain. These complications worsen the life quality and result in functional disorder.

Topics:

1.         The role of angiogenesis in adhesion formation – macroscopic and histological evaluation

2.         The role of the inhibition of angiogenesis – macroscopic and histological evaluation

3.         Immunodeficiency and the adhesion formation

The importance of animal research in the histology

theoretical work

Animal research has been an important scientific role in scientific since the ancient age. Follow up the way from the recognition to the experiments. How changed the attitude to the animal experiments? Beyond the ethical approach, we would like to understand the researchers’, philosophists’, and commoners’ opinion of the animal experiments.

 Topics:

1.     Animal research in the middle age

2.     Animal research in the 19-20th centuries

3.     Animal research in history form ethical point of view
