  1. 1. Developing knee joint osteoarthritis: Clinical, radiographical and biochemical features

    University dissertation from Spenshult´s Hospital for Rheumatic Diseases, S-313 92 Oskarström, Sweden

    Author : Ingemar Petersson; [1997]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; bone markers; cartilage markers; WOMAC; SF-36; function; health status quality-of-life; radiography; epidemiology; knee pain; Knee joint; osteoarthritis; bone scan; Skeleton; muscle system; rheumatology locomotion; Skelett; muskelsystem; reumatologi;

    Abstract : The aim of this project was to study clinical, radiographical and biochemical features of developing, symptomatic knee osteoarthritis (OA) prospectively in individuals aged 35-54 from the general population. A questionnaire to a random sample of 2 000 individuals in the district of Laholm, Sweden, identified 279 individuals (15% of the population) with chronic (>3 months) knee pain. READ MORE

  2. 2. Orthopaedic measurements with computed radiography. Methodological development, accuracy, and radiation dose with special reference to the weight-bearing lower extremity and the dislocating patella

    University dissertation from Röntgenavdelningen, Lasarettet, 271 82 Ystad, Sweden

    Author : Jan Sanfridsson; [2001]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Clinical physics; digital.; computer-assisted; Picture Archiving and Communication Systems; computed radiography; radiography; effective dose; radiation dosage; measurements; biomechanics; dislocating patella; musculoskeletal; patellofemoral joint; Knee joint; radiology; tomography; medical instrumentation; Klinisk fysiologi; radiologi; tomografi; medicinsk instrumentering;

    Abstract : The overall aim of this study was to develop and evaluate a measurement system for computed radiography (CR) and Picture Archiving and Communication Systems (PACS), permitting measurements of long distances and angles in and between related images. The developed measurement system, which was based on the QUESTOR Precision Radiography (QPR) system, was applied to the weight-bearing knee with special reference to the dislocating patella.

  3. 3. Epidemiology of osteoarthritis in Sweden. Register and cohort studies on prevalence and mortality

    University dissertation from Lunds universitet, Medicinska fakulteten

    Author : Aleksandra Turkiewicz; [2016]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Epidemiology; Osteoarthritis; Knee; Hip; Radiography; Mortality; Registers; Missing data;

    Abstract : Osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common form of arthritis and often causes pain and functional impairment. Despite its high burden on society, knowledge about the occurrence of OA and its associated mortality is sparse. READ MORE

  4. 4. Anterior Cruciate Ligament injury, Patient Variables, Outcomes and Knee Osteoarthritis

    University dissertation from Department of Orthopaedics, Lund University

    Author : Paul Neuman; [2010]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; meniscal injury; knee osteoarthritis; knee radiography; Anterior cruciate ligament injury ACL ; delayed gadolinium-enhanced MRI of cartilage dGEMRIC ;

    Abstract : The ruptured anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) leads to immediate symptoms that severely affect the individual and receives great attention among the scientific community, yet there is still no consensus on the optional form of treatment. An ACL injury is also a well known high risk factor for the development of knee osteoarthritis (OA) some decades later. READ MORE

  5. 5. Meniscal Tear - A Feature of Osteoarthritis

    University dissertation from Martin Englund, MD, Department of Orthopedics, Lund University Hospital, SE-221 85 Lund, Sweden

    Author : Martin Englund; [2004]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; traumatologi; ortopedi; Kirurgi; traumatology; orthopaedics; Surgery; symptoms; risk factors; radiography; osteoarthritis; meniscectomy; Epidemiology; knee injury;

    Abstract : Meniscectomy is recognized as an important risk factor for the development of knee osteoarthritis (OA), a disease that traditionally has been considered as a simple "wear and tear" phenomenon. However, despite numerous reports, little evidence has been presented that a limited meniscal resection, compared with a more extensive resection, reduces the risk of OA by preserving meniscal function.
