  1. 1. Kinematics and fixation of total knee arthroplasties : a clinical, radiographic, scintimetric, and roentgen stereophotogrammetric evaluation

    Author : Kjell G. Nilsson; Johan Kärrholm; Leif Ryd; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Total knee arthroplasty; tibial component; kinematics; micromotion; loosening; scintimetry; roentgen stereophotogrammetric analysis;

    Abstract : Aseptic loosening of the tibial component is an important cause of failure after total knee arthroplasty. Bone destruction often claimed to be caused by the cement makes the revision difficult. In order to treat younger patients, uncemented fixation has been introduced, but the etiology to loosening is multifactorial and only partly known. READ MORE

  2. 2. Biodiversity and green infrastructure in urban landscapes

    Author : Ulf G. Sandström; Per Angelstam; Abdul Khakee; Kjell Nilsson; Örebro universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Biologi; Birds in cities; Communication between sciences; Conservation planning; Landscape ecology; Swedish green planning; Urban green space; Urban planning; Urban vegetation; Biologi med ekologisk inriktning; Biology; Biologi; Biologi med ekologisk inriktning;

    Abstract : In this thesis, I evaluate the extent to which biodiversity is affected, and taken into consideration by, urban planning. Based on landscape ecology, I apply an interdisciplinary approach. READ MORE

  3. 3. Total knee arthroplasty : aspects on improved fixation in the younger patient

    Author : Anders Henricson; Kjell G Nilsson; Tore Dalén; Sören Toksvig-Larsen; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : Surgery; Total knee arthroplasty; total knee replacement; mobile bearing; trabecular metal; hydroxy-apatite coating; Kirurgi; Orthopaedics; ortopedi;

    Abstract : The results of total knee arthroplasty are inferior in younger patients. The challenge today is therefore to develop designs and concepts that will last at least 25 years. This thesis has evaluated the fixation to bone of modern designs of knee prostheses uring RSA analysis. READ MORE

  4. 4. The Uncemented Cup in Total Hip Arthroplasty : stability, Wear and Osteolysis

    Author : Volker T C Otten; Sead Crnalic; Kjell G Nilsson; André Stark; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Background: Artificial hip joint replacement has undergone tremendous development in the past 100 years. In the beginning, complications, such as infection and early loosening, were the rule rather than the exception. Today, complications of any sort are rare during the first decade after the operation.

  5. 5. On failure modelling in finite element analysis : material imperfections and element erosion

    Author : Mattias Unosson; Larsgunnar Nilsson; Kjell Simonsson; Lars Olovsson; Anders Eriksson; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; finite element method; element erosion; material failure; material imperfections; crack-tip; Solid mechanics; Fastkroppsmekanik;

    Abstract : This dissertation concerns failure modelling with material imperfections and element erosion in finite element analyses. The aim has been to improve the element erosion technique, which is simple to use and implement and also computationally inexpensive. READ MORE
