  1. 1. Knee joint kinematics, fixation and function related to joint area design in total knee arthroplasty

    University dissertation from Göteborg

    Author : Johan Uvehammer; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2000]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Total knee arthroplasty; polyethylene insert; kinematics; migration; clinical outcome; inducible displacement of the tibial component; radiostereometry.;

    Abstract : The aim was to study the influence of different designs of the joint area on tibial component fixation, kinematics and clinical outcome after a cemented total knee arthroplasty (TKA). The HSS score and a special questionnaire were used at the clinical examination. READ MORE

  2. 2. Fixation of the cemented tibial component : A radiostereometric analysis

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Surgical Science

    Author : Hans Christian Hyldahl; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2003]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Aseptic loosening of the tibial component was the major mode for failure in early uni-(UKA) and total condylar knee arthroplasty (TKA). Metal-backing (MB) was introduced to solve the fixation problem of the tibial component, based on biomechanical experiments. READ MORE

  3. 3. 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. READ MORE
