    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; traumatology; Surgery; orthopaedics; cell culture; graft; rat; collagen; tendon; Schwann cells; axons; Peripheral nerve regeneration; axonal outgrowth; Kirurgi; ortopedi; traumatologi;

    Abstract : A new method, where a tendon segment – a tendon autograft – was used as graft material for peripheral nerve reconstruction, was developed. Defects, 10-15 mm long, in rat sciatic nerves were bridged by various modifications of tendons. READ MORE

    Abstract : The clinical, radiographic, histological and ultrastructural results after Anterior Cruciate Ligament reconstruction using autografts Michael Svensson Department of Orthopaedics, Institute of Clinical Sciences, The Sahlgrenska Academy at G?teborg University, G?teborg, Sweden The principal aims of the study were to perform a long-term analysis of the patellar tendon structure after harvesting its central third as an autograft during ACL reconstruction. The patellar tendon underwent long-term serial morphological evaluations using MRI, histological evaluations at two and six years and ultrastructural evaluation six years after the harvesting procedure.

  3. 3. On surgical techniques to reduce morbidity after anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction. The significance of harvesting technique, preconditioning, graft choice and the course of bone mineral in the calcaneus

    Author : Lars Ejerhed; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction; patellar tendon autograft; semitendinosus tendon autograft; preconditioning; bone mineral areal mass;

    Abstract : The aim of the study was to reduce undesired postoperative effects, such as anterior knee pain, loss of sensitivity in the knee region and problems with knee-walking after anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstructive surgery. Furthermore, prospectively to evaluate the bone mineral in the calcanei before and after ACL reconstruction. READ MORE

  4. 4. Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction - Early predictors of outcome

    Abstract : The rupture of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) is a serious injury, often resulting in functional instability and increased laxity of the knee joint. Patients suffering an ACL injury run the risk of further complications, such as meniscal or cartilage injury in the short term and degeneration of the knee joint in the long term. READ MORE

  5. 5. Long-term studies after primary and revision Anterior Cruciate Ligament reconstruction using different types of autograft - with special emphasis on the clinical, radiographic, histological and ultrastructural results

    Abstract : Long-term studies after primary and revision Anterior Cruciate Ligament reconstruction using different types of autograft? with special emphasis on the clinical, radiographic, histological and ultrastructural results Mattias Lid?n Department of Orthopaedics, Institute of Clinical Sciences at Sahlgrenska Academy, University of Gothenburg, G?teborg, Sweden The aim of this study was to evaluate the long-term outcome after primary ACL reconstruction surgery using either BPTB or HT autografts and, in addition, ACL revision surgery using re-harvested patellar tendon autografts. Clinical and standard radiographic assessments were made of both the primary ACL-reconstructed knees and the patients who underwent ACL revision surgery using re-harvested patellar tendon autografts.
