  1. 1. Radiography and bone scintigraphy in osteoarthritis of the knee: comparison with MR imaging

    Author : Torsten Boegård; Lund Diagnostisk radiologi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; radiologi; Klinisk fysiologi; medical instrumentation; tomography; radiology; Clinical physics; MR imaging; bone scintigraphy; osteophyte; joint space width; weight-bearing; radiograms; Knee joint; osteoarthritis; tomografi; medicinsk instrumentering;

    Abstract : The aim was to compare radiography of the tibiofemoral joint (TFJ) and the patellofemoral joint (PFJ), as well as bone scinigraphy with MR imaging in middle-aged individuals with chronic knee pain in the format of a prospective study of knee osteoarthritis. Individuals aged 35-54 years with chronic knee pain were identified. READ MORE

  2. 2. Human studies evaluating dGEMRIC as a prognostic tool for knee osteoarthritis

    Author : Henrik Owman; Malmö Institutionen för kliniska vetenskaper; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Delayed gadolinium-enhanced MRI of cartilage dGEMRIC ; knee; cartilage; glycosaminoglycan; anterior cruciate ligament injury; meniscal injury; osteoarthritis; joint space narrowing; osteophyte;

    Abstract : Osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common joint disorder worldwide, causing joint pain and stiffness. The current gold standard for diagnosing knee OA is radiography. However, the disease has often progressed well beyond the point of no return once radiographic cartilage changes become visible. READ MORE

  3. 3. Meniscectomy, meniscal repair, and prosthetic substitution : Clinical and experimental investigations

    Author : Karola Messner; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Abstract : This study comprising 7 papers is concerned with different treatment of meniscal injuries. The aim was to analyse today's clinical methods and the possibility for prosthetic substitution in the future. Open peripheral meniscal repair was compared with partial arthroscopic meniscectomy in a 7·year follow-up evaluation of 130 patients. READ MORE

  4. 4. Anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction : Anatomic and biomechanical considerations of graft placement and fixation

    Author : Lars Good; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Abstract : This study, comprising 7 separate papers, is concerned with the mechanical causes of graft failure after intraarticular reconstruction of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL). The study is predominantly experimental in design, but a clinical follow-up is also included to test a causal hypothesis of secondary graft elongation. READ MORE

  5. 5. Biochemical biomarkers at the site of inflammation and in peripheral blood

    Author : Anja Finn; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Biochemical biomarkers are small molecular species, naturally varying or experimentally induced, which are measurable in body fluids and which may provide alternative or complementary tools to describe disease processes or to assess responses to pharmacological treatment. The focus of this thesis is inflammatory biomarkers, mediators, chemokines and cytokines that attract immune cells and that regulate the course of the inflammatory process at the site of inflammation.
