  1. 1. Legg-Calvé-Perthes´ disease. Synovitis, cartilage, remodeling

    Author : Göran Eckerwall; Lund Ortopedi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Stromelysin; Sonography; Remodeling; Proteoglycan; Pressure; Osteotomy; MRI; MR imaging; Metaphysis; Legg-Calvé-Perthes; Histology; Hip; Arthrography; Child; Synovitis; Surgery; orthopaedics; traumatology; Kirurgi; ortopedi; traumatologi;

    Abstract : This thesis evaluates and correlates the findings in a series of children with Legg-Calvé-Perthes´ Disease at the Departments of Orthopedics, University Hospitals in Lund, Sweden and Odense, Denmark during 1984-1993. It focuses on the importance of synovitis and its effect on the cartilage, on the shape of the femoral head in the early phases of LCPD and on femoral head remodeling after proximal femoral varus derotation osteotomy.

  2. 2. Outcome Assessment in Lumbar Spine Surgery

    Author : Gustavo Zanoli; Lund Ortopedi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; traumatologi; Surgery; Skeleton; muscle system; rheumatology locomotion; Skelett; muskelsystem; reumatologi; Spinal stenosis; Disc; Questionnaire; Outcome assessment; Lumbar spine; Kirurgi; traumatology; orthopaedics; ortopedi;

    Abstract : No consensus regarding outcomes assessment in spine patients exists. Health-Related Quality of Life (HRQoL) questionnaires are increasingly used. The objective of this thesis was the evaluation of HRQoL measures before and after lumbar spine surgery, and their relation to other evaluation parameters as well as relevance of differences.

  3. 3. Meniscal Tear - A Feature of Osteoarthritis

    Author : Martin Englund; Lund Ortopedi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; traumatologi; ortopedi; Kirurgi; traumatology; orthopaedics; Surgery; symptoms; risk factors; radiography; osteoarthritis; meniscectomy; Epidemiology; knee injury;

    Abstract : Meniscectomy is recognized as an important risk factor for the development of knee osteoarthritis (OA), a disease that traditionally has been considered as a simple "wear and tear" phenomenon. However, despite numerous reports, little evidence has been presented that a limited meniscal resection, compared with a more extensive resection, reduces the risk of OA by preserving meniscal function.

  4. 4. Amputation for vascular disease. Prognostic factors for healing, long-term outcome and costs

    Author : Magnus Eneroth; Lund Ortopedi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; costs; deep foot infections; supplementary nutrition; prognostic factors; outcome; diabetes mellitus; Amputation; vascular disease; Surgery; orthopaedics; traumatology; Kirurgi; ortopedi; traumatologi;

    Abstract : General characteristics and outcome was evaluated in 177 consecutive patients who underwent a major amputation in a defined population. Smoking and diabetes lowered the mean amputation age. Healing failure at six months was seen in 24% of transtibial and in 11% of transfemoral amputees. READ MORE

  5. 5. Dynamic fixation of unstable trochanteric hip fractures. A clinical and radiographic evaluation of the Medoff sliding plate

    Author : Karl Lunsjö; Lund Ortopedi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; orthopaedics; Surgery; Radiography.; Implants; Hip fractures; Trochanteric; traumatology; Kirurgi; ortopedi; traumatologi;

    Abstract : In stabilising extracapsular hip fractures, the Medoff sliding plate (MSP) differs from other screw-plates by its compression capacity along the femoral shaft (uniaxial dynamization). Additional compression along the neck of femur can be achieved by primary release of the lag screw (biaxial dynamization). READ MORE
