  1. 1. On lumbar spine stabilization

    University dissertation from Department of Orthopaedics, Lund University

    Author : Paul Axelsson; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [1996]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Kirurgi; orthopaedics; traumatology; Surgery; lumbar orthosis.; external pedicular fixation; adjacent segment; intervertebral mobility; Posterolateral lumbar fusion; roentgen stereophotogrammetric analysis; ortopedi; traumatologi;

    Abstract : 71 consecutive posterolateral lumbar fusions without decompression or internal fixation were evaluated with a mean follow-up time of 3.5 (2-7) years. The diagnoses were spondylolysis-olisthesis in 43 cases, degenerative disc disease and/or facet joint arthrosis in 16 cases and pain post laminectomy/ decompression in 12 cases. READ MORE

  2. 2. Enhancing material and biological properties of calcium phosphate bone substitute

    University dissertation from Department of Orthopaedics, Lund University

    Author : Christopher Camire; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2005]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; materialteknik; Non-metallic mineral technology; Icke-metallisk mineralteknik; Biotechnology; Bioteknik; Materiallära; Material technology; Technological sciences; Teknik; Naturvetenskap; reumatologi; Surgery; orthopaedics; traumatology; Kirurgi; ortopedi; traumatologi; Natural science; muskelsystem; Skelett; muscle system; rheumatology locomotion; Bone Substitute; Calcium Phosphate; Skeleton; Medicin människa och djur ; Medicine human and vertebrates ; Osteoconductivity; Silicon; Mechanical Properties; Crystallinity; Reactivity; Calorimetry; Hydroxyapatite;

    Abstract : Calcium phosphate materials (CaPs) have proven biocompatible and useful in clinical situations. One CaP showing promise in the clinic is alpha phase tricalcium phosphate ([alpha]-TCP). [alpha]-TCP in powder form can be hydrated and undergoes a reaction resulting in calcium deficient hydroxyapatite (CDHA). READ MORE

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

    University dissertation from Department of Orthopaedics, Lund University

    Author : Göran Eckerwall; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [1996]
    Keywords : 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.

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

    University dissertation from Department of Orthopaedics, Lund University

    Author : Magnus Eneroth; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [1997]
    Keywords : 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. BMP treatment for improving tendon repair. Studies on rat and rabbit Achilles tendons

    University dissertation from Department of Orthopaedics, Lund University

    Author : Carina Forslund; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2002]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; traumatologi; Surgery; orthopaedics; traumatology; ortopedi; Kirurgi;

    Abstract : We wanted to improve tendon healing by adding a growth factor. Bone Morphogenetic Proteins (BMPs) are well known to stimulate bone healing and bone formation. The local environment is of major importance for cell differentiation after a BMP has been added. READ MORE
