  1. 1. Revision Hip Arthroplasty : Impaction Bone Grafting and Low-Dose CT-Based Measurements of Bone Density and Migration

    Author : Hampus Stigbrand; Gösta Ullmark; Nils Hailer; Per Wretenberg; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Revision Hip Arthroplasty; Bone Grafting; Computed Tomography; Bone Mineral Density; CTMA; Orthopaedics; Ortopedi;

    Abstract : Aseptic loosening of total hip replacements is always associated with bone defects, either due to removal of the existing implant or osteolysis. Bone defects can be handled during revision surgery with impaction bone grafting (IBG). READ MORE

  2. 2. Uncemented Total Hip Arthroplasty : Aspects on Bone Biology, Implant Fixation, Periprosthetic Bone Remodeling, Bone Mineral Density and Effects of Denosumab

    Author : Andreas Nyström; Hans Mallmin; Nils Hailer; Gösta Ullmark; Jens Sörensen; Arkan Sayed-Noor; Uppsala universitet; []

    Abstract : Uncemented total hip arthroplasty (THA) is associated with loss of periprosthetic bone mineral density (BMD). The collum femoris preserving (CFP) stem lost 28% of proximal BMD at 2 years. READ MORE

  3. 3. Silicon nitride for total hip replacements

    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

  4. 4. Early Mortality After Total Hip Arthroplasty In Sweden

    Author : Anne Garland; Nils Hailer; Ashley Blom; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : early mortality; total hip replacement; total hip arthroplasty; comorbidity; socioeconomic factor; cemented; Orthopaedics; Ortopedi;

    Abstract : Every year 16 000 individuals receive a total hip arthroplasty (THA) in Sweden. Even though THA is a common procedure, adverse events do occur. The most dramatic complication is death in the postoperative phase. The overall aim of this thesis was to describe and investigate early mortality after THA in Sweden. READ MORE

  5. 5. Radiological measurements in total hip arthroplasty

    Author : Bariq Al-Amiry; Arkan Sayed-Noor; Torkel Brismar; Seppo Koskinen; Mats Geijer; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : Total hip arthroplasty; leg length discrepancy; femoral offset; WOMAC; quality of life; radiographicmeasurements; Kellgren-Lawrence; duration; acetabular cup; inclination; anteversion; BMI;

    Abstract : Every year, about 1 million patients worldwide and 20000 patients in Sweden undergo total hip arthroplasty (THA). This type of operation is considered a successful, safe and cost-effective procedure to regain mobility and restore hip joint function in patients suffering from severe hip joint disease or trauma.
