  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. 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

  5. 5. Exercise in Youth and Long-Term Effects on Bone and Joints

    University dissertation from Department of Clinical Sciences, Lund University

    Author : Magnus Tveit; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2013]
