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

    University dissertation from Umeå : Ortopedi

    Author : Anders Henricson; Umeå universitet.; [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. Long-term results after partial knee arthroplasty with the Oxford Knee

    University dissertation from Umeå : Ortopedi

    Author : Ulf C G Svärd; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2009]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Partial knee arthroplasty; Oxford knee;

    Abstract : Introduction Osteoarthritis of the knee is one of the most common reasons for disability, especially in elderly people. Surgical treatment is still controversial. Unicompartmental knee arthroplasty, i.e. READ MORE

  3. 3. 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

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

    University dissertation from Department of Orthopaedics, Lund University

    Author : Ulrik Hansson; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2008]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; radiostereometry; histology; interface; micromotion; knee; joint replacement;

    Abstract : Abstract: In the interface, between implant and bone or between the cement and bone, there will develop some amount of fibrous tissue. The synovial fluid, the synovium, the cartilage and the subchondral bone from the non-replaced knee compartment that had been exposed to wear particles were studied by histological analyses.

  5. 5. Knee joint kinematics and the effects of arthropasty component design

    University dissertation from Department of Orthopaedics, Lund University

    Author : Tuuli Saari; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2004]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Total knee replacement; motion analysis; radiostereometry; migration; kinematics; radiolucent lines; clinical outcome;

    Abstract : Aims: To evaluate the influence of medial osteoarthritis on knee joint kinematics and the effect of design in total knee replacements (TKR) on the kinematics of trunk, hip, knee and ankle. Associations between articulating surface design, clinical outcome and fixation of the tibial component were also evaluated. READ MORE
