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

    Author : Thorkell Snaebjörnsson; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Knee; ACL; registry; hamstring tendon; anterior cruciate ligament; patellar tendon; graft failure; graft fixation; graft diameter; autograft; revision; 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

  2. 2. Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction - Graft failures, surgical techniques and patient-reported outcome measures

    Author : Haukur Björnsson; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; knee; anterior cruciate ligament; double-bundle; single-bundle; register; hamstring tendon; patellar tendon; graft failure; patient-reported outcome measures;

    Abstract : Injuries to the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) can result in increased joint laxity, which often ends participation in competitive sports and may, in the medium to long term, lead to degeneration of the knee. The occurrence of ACL injuries has increased in recent years and, today, ACL reconstruction is one of the most common procedures in orthopaedic surgery. READ MORE

  3. 3. Clinically-driven angiography after coronary artery bypass surgery : Results from the SWEDEHEART registry

    Author : Mikael Janiec; Rickard Lindblom; Stefan Thelin; Alexander Wahba; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; CABG; Coronary artery bypass surgery; angiography; graft failure; Thorax Surgery; Thoraxkirurgi;

    Abstract : The success of coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) arguably depends on the patency rate of the conduits. The saphenous vein grafts (SVGs) most often used are subject to graft disease and their reduced long-term patency compared to left internal mammary artery (IMA) grafts is well established. READ MORE

  4. 4. Anatomic anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction - aspects of surgical technique

    Author : Neel Desai; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Knee; Anterior cruciate ligament; Anatomic; Double-bundle; Single-bundle; Laxity; Register; AARSC; Score; Graft failure; Revision; Outcome;

    Abstract : Anatomic anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction is a concept that has gained in interest and it aims to more effectively restore native ACL anatomy and function. Despite extensive research on the topic, the optimal surgical technique to accomplish this is still the subject of debate. READ MORE

  5. 5. Interactions between leukocytes, platelets and the endothelium in vein graft failure

    Author : Chi-Nan Tseng; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : Autologous venous grafts are preferred conduits in bypass surgery due to their length, easy harvesting, and feasibility. However, development of intimal hyperplasia decreases long-term patency rate in venous grafts prompting close clinical surveillance and further intervention. READ MORE
