  1. 1. Silicon nitride for total hip replacements

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Maria Pettersson; Uppsala universitet.; [2015]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; SiNx; Si3N4; coatings; CoCr; Ti; alloy; tribology; wear; corrosion; dissolution; debris; hip; arthroplasty; Teknisk fysik med inriktning mot materialvetenskap; Engineering Science with specialization in Materials Science;

    Abstract : For more than 50 years total hip replacements have been a common and successful procedure to increase patient mobility and quality of life. The 10-year implant survival rate is 97.8%. READ MORE

  2. 2. Osteoarthritis of the Hip and Uncemented Total Hip Arthroplasty Effects of Immediate Weight Bearing on Implant Stability, Bone Mineral Density, and Body Composition

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Olof Wolf; Uppsala universitet.; [2010]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Osteoarthritis of the hip; uncemented; total hip arthroplasty; stability; RSA; BMD; DXA; body composition; weight bearing; MEDICINE Surgery Surgical research Orthopaedics; MEDICIN Kirurgi Kirurgisk forskning Ortopedi; Orthopaedics; Ortopedi;

    Abstract : The initial recommendation for the postoperative regime after uncemented total hip arthroplasty (THA) was 6-12 weeks of partial weight bearing (PWB) to obtain a stable implant position during bone ingrowth. In recent years patients with uncemented THA have increasingly practiced full weight bearing (FWB) after surgery, which has largely been based on clinical experience rather than on scientific evidence.

  3. 3. Greater trochanteric pain after total hip arthroplasty incidence, clinical outcome, associated factors, tenderness evaluation with algometer and a new surgical treatment

    University dissertation from Umeå : Ortopedi

    Author : Arkan Sam Sayed-Noor; Umeå universitet.; [2008]
    Keywords : greater trochanteric pain; total hip arthroplasty; leg length discrepancy; algometer; pressure-pain threshold; ilio-tibial band; lengthening; Orthopaedics; ortopedi;

    Abstract : Greater trochanteric pain (GTP) is a regional pain syndrome characterized by lateral hip pain and tenderness. Its incidence after total hip arthroplasty (THA) is variable. READ MORE

  4. 4. Loosening, revision and function of the cemented hip arthroplasty

    University dissertation from Department of Orthopaedics, Lund University

    Author : Herbert Franzén; [1996]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Surgery; NHP.; stress-shielding RSA; wear; revision; loosening; Hip; arthroplasty; orthopaedics; traumatology; Kirurgi; ortopedi; traumatologi;

    Abstract : The goal of total hip replacement(THR) with a prosthesis is to improve the quality of life in the patients with hip disease. Loosening of the prosthesis is the most common cause of deteriorating long-term results. Reaction to wear products and stess-shielding giving rise to resorption of bone are usually blamed for this deterioration. READ MORE

  5. 5. Leg length discrepancy and femoral offset after total hip arthroplasty clinical and radiological studies

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå Universitet

    Author : Sarwar Mahmood; Umeå universitet.; [2016]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Total hip arthroplasty; leg flength discrepancy; femoral offset; WOMAC; quality of life; complication; radiographic measurements; acetabular cup; inclination; anteversion; Orthopaedics; ortopedi;

    Abstract : Every year, about 1 million patients worldwide and 16000 patients in Sweden undergo total hip arthroplasty (THA). This surgical intervention is considered a successful, safe and cost-effective procedure to regain pain-free mobility and restore hip joint function in patients suffering from severe hip joint disease or trauma.
