About Maria Wikström
Maria Wikström began her doctoral education at Örebro University within the subject Medical Science with a specialisation in Surgical Sciences in May 2019. Maria works as a consultant at the Department of Surgery at Örebro University Hospital.
Marias research focus on traumatic vena caval and retrohepatic venous injuries, which often result in life-threatening bleeding and hemorrhagic shock. These injuries are difficult to treat and mortality rates are high. Traditional open surgery methods for hepatic vascular isolation have not been efficient enough. New methods for hepatic vascular isolation are therefore needed. The project aims to explore the potential of endovascular venous balloon occlusion of vena cava inferior, with or without open surgery methods or arterial endovascular occlusion and what hemodynamic and metabolic effects such occlusions might have.
