  1. 1. Total knee arthroplasty : Alternative aspects on fixation, design and postoperative treatment

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Gunnar Adalberth; Uppsala universitet.; [2000]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Surgery; Total knee arthroplasty; RSA; migration; all-polyethylene; drainage; cement; Kirurgi; MEDICINE Surgery; MEDICIN Kirurgi; Orthopaedics; ortopedi;

    Abstract : Total knee arthroplasty as a treatment of severe gonarthrosis has become a great success, but tibial component loosening is still a major reason for failure. When total knee arthroplasty was introduced, only all-polyethylene (AP) tibial components were available. READ MORE

  2. 2. Cyclooxygenase-2 inhibitors and knee prosthesis surgery

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Andreas Meunier; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; Östergötlands Läns Landsting.; [2008]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory agents; administration dosage; Arthroplasty; knee replacement; Surgical blood loss; Surgery; Cyclooxygenase inhibitors; Cyclooxygenase inhibitors; Fracture healing; Isoxazoles; Postoperative pain; Pyrazoles; Sulfonamides; MEDICINE Surgery; MEDICIN Kirurgi;

    Abstract : Adverse effects of cyclooxygenase (COX) inhibitors on bone healing have previously been demonstrated in diaphyseal fracture models in animals. In spite of that, they are widely used as postoperative analgesics in orthopaedic surgery. After joint replacement, a bone repair process starts at the interface between bone and cement. READ MORE

  3. 3. The infected knee arthroplasty

    University dissertation from Lund University: Faculty of Medicine

    Author : Anna Stefansdottir; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2010]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; outcome; revision knee arthroplasty; microbiology; Primary knee arthroplasty; infection; predictive factors; antibiotic prophylaxis;

    Abstract : The Swedish Knee Arthroplasty Register (SKAR) was used to identify 478 cases that underwent a first-time revision with exchange or removal of the prosthesis due to infection during the years 1986–2000. 30% of the infections were diagnosed within 3 months from primary operation and two-thirds were diagnosed within 2 years.

  4. 4. Pain, Function, and Dissatisfaction after Total knee Arthroplasty

    University dissertation from Lund University: Faculty of Medicine

    Author : ABDULEMIR MUHAMMED NURI ALI; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2016]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; TKA; dissatisfaction; continuous intraarticular analgesia; patella; anxiety depression; pain; function;

    Abstract : Osteoarthritis (OA) is a progressive degenerative joint disorder, and the prevalence increases with age. In Sweden, about one in 4 people over the age of 45 years has OA in at least one joint. As the population ages and the prevalence of obesity increases, OA is expected to increase even more.

  5. 5. Kinematics and fixation of total knee arthroplasties a clinical, radiographic, scintimetric, and roentgen stereophotogrammetric evaluation

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Kjell G. Nilsson; Umeå universitet.; [1992]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Total knee arthroplasty; tibial component; kinematics; micromotion; loosening; scintimetry; roentgen stereophotogrammetric analysis;

    Abstract : Aseptic loosening of the tibial component is an important cause of failure after total knee arthroplasty. Bone destruction often claimed to be caused by the cement makes the revision difficult. In order to treat younger patients, uncemented fixation has been introduced, but the etiology to loosening is multifactorial and only partly known. READ MORE
