  1. 1. Total knee arthroplasty aspects on improved fixation in the younger patient

    University dissertation from Umeå : Ortopedi

    Author : Anders Henricson; Kjell G Nilsson; Tore Dalén; Sören Toksvig-Larsen; [2008]
    Keywords : Surgery; Total knee arthroplasty; total knee replacement; mobile bearing; trabecular metal; hydroxy-apatite coating; Kirurgi; Orthopaedics; ortopedi;

    Abstract : The results of total knee arthroplasty are inferior in younger patients. The challenge today is therefore to develop designs and concepts that will last at least 25 years.This thesis has evaluated the fixation to bone of modern designs of knee prostheses uring RSA analysis.

  2. 2. Fast-track programs in total hip and knee replacement at Swedish hospitals - influences on safety, outcome and patients' experiences

    University dissertation from Göteborgs universitet

    Author : Urban Berg; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2020]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; fast-track; enhanced recovery; hip replacement; knee replacement; care program;

    Abstract : ABSTRACT Background Fast-track is a care concept that aims to enhance recovery after surgery, resulting in shortened perioperative hospital stay. By using evidence-based methods in preparation and perioperative care the clinical pathway and care process is optimized to achieve early discharge from hospital based on functional criteria.

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

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Andreas Meunier; Lars Good; Per Aspenberg; Tore Dalén; [2008]

    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

  5. 5. The fixation of joint prostheses. Aspects on mechanics and biology

    University dissertation from Department of Orthopaedics, Lund University
