  1. 1. Soft Tissue Aspects of the Shoulder Joint

    Author : Shwan Khoschnau; Hans Rahme; Karl Michaelsson; Lars Adolfsson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; cruciate ligament; shoulder dislocation; polymorphism; collagen; biomechanical properties; rotator cuff tear; shoulder ultrasound; adhesive capsulitis; MRI;

    Abstract : The aim of this thesis was to study different aspects of the soft tissues of the shoulder joint. The variation in the quality of the tendons and ligaments can be explained by genetic factors. READ MORE

  2. 2. Anterior shoulder dislocation : Aspects of alternative methods of treatment and MR imaging

    Author : Göran Wintzell; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Surgery; Shoulder; traumatic primary dislocation; arthroscopic lavage; non-operative regime; Indirect MR arthrography; apprehension position; ABER position; Bankart operation; Kirurgi; Surgery; Kirurgi; Orthopaedics; ortopedi;

    Abstract : Sixty patients (16-30 years) with traumatic primary anterior shoulder dislocation were allocated to arthroscopic lavage or non-operative treatment. The arthroscopic lavage group had a lower recurrence rate, better functional outcome and anterior stability after one year. READ MORE

  3. 3. Shoulder instability : A clinical and MRI-based analysis

    Author : Björn Salomonsson; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; Shoulder instability; Shoulder instability classification; Shoulder arthroscopy; MRI; MR-arthography; Shoulder instability surgery; Shoulder instability assessment; Outcome instruments;

    Abstract : Shoulder instability is a common but complex and challenging area of shoulder pathology, and new diagnostic methods and treatments are continuously developed. We conducted this study to evaluate the clinical outcome of shoulder instability with respect to different diagnostic possibilities and surgical treatments. READ MORE

  4. 4. Planning of Environments for People with Physical Disabilities Using Computer Aided Design

    Author : Joakim Eriksson; Ergonomi och aerosolteknologi; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; manikin; Virtual Reality; CAD; computer aided design; 3D graphics; design tool; participatory planning; adaptation; Rehabilitation; disability; anthropometry; Technological sciences; magnetic resonance imaging; MRI; cervical spine kinematics; Teknik; biomechanics;

    Abstract : In the area of environment adaptations for people with physical disabilities, it is of vital importance that the design is optimized considering the human-environment interactions. All involved persons in such a planning process must be given sufficient support in understanding the information, so that everyone can participate actively. READ MORE

  5. 5. Observation Methods and Imaging Techniques. Assessments of physical exposure in repetitive work with focus on neck and upper extremities

    Author : Birgit Juul-Kristensen; Fysioterapi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; imaging techniques; force; electromyography; video recording; electrogoniometer; inclinometer; movement; posture; physical exposure; industrial work; repetitive; upper extremity; neck; observation method; musculoskeletal; Yrkesmedicin; arbetsmiljömedicin; industrial medicine; Occupational health; epidemiology; ultrasound; magnetic resonance;

    Abstract : Observation methods and imaging techniques - assessments of physical exposure in repetitive work with focus on neck and upper extremities The aim of this thesis was to develop, establish and validate observation methods for exposure assessments in epidemiological studies of repetitive work. A second aim was to increase the quality of input data for biomechanical shoulder models, by reliability and validity studies of Magnetic Reso-nance Imaging (MRI) and Ultrasound Scanning (US).
