  1. 1. Contrast-enhanced MRI of human knee cartilage Clinical applications of the novel dGEMRIC technique to study glycosaminoglycan content in articular cartilage

    University dissertation from Medicinsk Informationsteknik, Malmö

    Author : Carl Johan Tiderius; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2004]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; orthopaedics; Surgery; traumatology; Kirurgi; ortopedi; traumatologi; exercise; osteoarthritis; anterior cruciate ligament; glycosaminoglycan; MRI; cartilage; dGEMRIC; knee;

    Abstract : Delayed gadolinium-enhanced MRI of cartilage (dGEMRIC) is a new technique to study cartilage glycosaminoglycan (GAG) content. The negatively charged contrast agent Gd-DTPA2-, injected intravenously, distributes in the cartilage inversely to the likewise negatively charged GAG. READ MORE

  2. 2. In vivo Sub-regional dGEMRIC Analysis and Contrast Distribution in Clinical Studies of Human Knee Cartilage

    University dissertation from Joint and Soft Tissue Unit

    Author : Zana Hawezi; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2013]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; dGEMRIC; MRI; sub-regional; knee; cartilage; GAG; meniscus injury; osteoarthritis; exercise.;

    Abstract : Aims: This work was carried out to investigate whether considering cartilage depth in vivo dGEMRIC would provide additional information on the molecular content and changes in normal and diseased cartilage. Methods: Study I was a longitudinal study on 23 healthy volunteers; Study II was a case-control study on 9 sedentary individuals and 8 elite runners. READ MORE

  3. 3. Anterior Cruciate Ligament injury, Patient Variables, Outcomes and Knee Osteoarthritis

    University dissertation from Department of Orthopaedics, Lund University

    Author : Paul Neuman; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2010]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; knee osteoarthritis; meniscal injury; knee radiography; Anterior cruciate ligament injury ACL ; delayed gadolinium-enhanced MRI of cartilage dGEMRIC ;

    Abstract : The ruptured anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) leads to immediate symptoms that severely affect the individual and receives great attention among the scientific community, yet there is still no consensus on the optional form of treatment. An ACL injury is also a well known high risk factor for the development of knee osteoarthritis (OA) some decades later. READ MORE

  4. 4. Human studies evaluating dGEMRIC as a prognostic tool for knee osteoarthritis

    University dissertation from Orthopaedics

    Author : Henrik Owman; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2014]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; knee; Delayed gadolinium-enhanced MRI of cartilage dGEMRIC ; cartilage; glycosaminoglycan; anterior cruciate ligament injury; meniscal injury; osteoarthritis; joint space narrowing; osteophyte;

    Abstract : Osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common joint disorder worldwide, causing joint pain and stiffness. The current gold standard for diagnosing knee OA is radiography. However, the disease has often progressed well beyond the point of no return once radiographic cartilage changes become visible. READ MORE

  5. 5. Anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction using semitendinosus and gracilis autograft. Evaluation of the clinical outcome, radiographic findings, histology and biochemistry

    University dissertation from University of Gothenburg

    Author : Martina Åhlén; Göteborgs universitet.; University of Gothenburg.; [2015]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Anterior Cruciate Ligament; hamstring tendon regeneration; biopsies; cartilage markers; inflammatory cytokines; MRI; strenght measurements;

    Abstract : The present thesis focuses on different aspects of anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction using hamstring tendon (HT) autografts. In Study I, two groups of patients were compared. READ MORE
