  1. 1. Epidemiology of meniscus position: associations with knee symptoms and osteoarthritis

    University dissertation from Lund University: Faculty of Medicine

    Author : Fredrik Svensson; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2019]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; meniscus position; Knee osteoarthritis; magnetic resonance imaging; Pain;

    Abstract : Meniscal extrusion (ME) in the knee joint is defined as when the peripheral border of the meniscus is substantially located outside the joint margin. Prior studies have reported that ME is associated with meniscal tears, meniscal degeneration, and the presence of knee osteoarthritis (OA). READ MORE

  2. 2. On assessment methods related to pain in dogs with osteoarthritis

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Ann Essner; Uppsala universitet.; [2018]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; assessment methods; behavior; canine; chronic pain; heart rate variability; measurement properties; osteoarthritis; physiotherapy; rehabilitation; Physiotherapy; Sjukgymnastik fysioterapi;

    Abstract : There is a need of valid and reliable assessment methods that are clinically applicable in canine rehabilitation practice. The aim of this thesis was to psychometrically evaluate measurement properties in assessment methods related to pain in naturally occurring canine osteoarthritis. READ MORE

  3. 3. Osteoarthritis. Epidemiologic and genetic aspects

    University dissertation from Lund University

    Author : Jonas Franklin; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2010]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; body mass index; knee; hip; epidemiology; Osteoarthritis; occupation; hip fracture; inheritance; natural history;

    Abstract : The purpose of this study was to (I) assess the association between body mass index (BMI) and total hip replacement (THR) and total knee replacement (TKR) due to osteoarthritis (OA), (II) assess the association between the mechanical load of work and THR and TKR due to OA, (III) evaluate the natural history of radiographic hip OA with regards to THR and hip fracture, (IV) to determine the prevalence of radiographic OA in patients with hip fracture, and (V) to examine and compare the inheritance patterns of THR for OA and hip fracture. OA was previously regarded as a consequence of the wear and tear the joint is subjected to during one’s lifetime. READ MORE

  4. 4. On the role of signaling pathways in the pathogenesis of osteoarthritis

    University dissertation from Lund University

    Author : Johan Stenberg; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2014]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Osteoarthritis; Signalling pathways; proteomics; genomics; GDF5; Wnt;

    Abstract : The problem with degenerating cartilage tissues is one of the major causes for disability worldwide. The aetiology of the cartilage degenerating disease osteoarthritis is elusive and considered to be multifactorial. The aim of the present thesis was to find new hypotheses regarding the aetiology of osteoarthritis with focus on signalling pathways. READ MORE

  5. 5. Aggrecan fragments as biomarkers in osteoarthritis

    University dissertation from Lund Univerity, Faculty of Medicine, Clinical Sciences Lund, Department of Orthopaedics, SE-221 84 Lund, Sweden

    Author : Staffan Larsson; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2010]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; protease; Aggrecan; osteoarthritis; proteoglycan; knee injury; biomarker; aggrecanase;

    Abstract : Background: In osteoarthritis (OA) the balance of cartilage matrix synthesis and degradation is disturbed, resulting in a gradual destruction of the articular cartilage. Matrix components released into body fluids by proteolytic cleavage can be used as biomarkers of ongoing processes. READ MORE
