  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. Who should have total hip replacement? Use of patient-reported outcome measures in identifying the indications for and assessment of total hip replacement

    University dissertation from Göteborg : University of Gothenburg

    Author : Meridith E Greene; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2015]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Patient-reported outcome measures; Swedish Hip Arthroplasty Register; Harris Joint Registry; total hip replacement; health-related quality of life; EQ-5D; surgical recommendations;

    Abstract : Background: Total hip replacement (THR) is a successful treatment for end-stage hip osteoarthritis (OA). Patients commonly seek this treatment to improve physical function, diminish pain, and ultimately to increase health-related quality of life (HRQoL). READ MORE

  3. 3. 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

  4. 4. Friction and Wear Mechanisms of Ceramic Surfaces With Applications to Micro Motors and Hip Joint Replacements

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Johanna Olofsson; Uppsala universitet.; [2011]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Tribology; Friction; Wear; Ceramic; Tribofilm; Alumina; Silicon nitride; Ultrasonic Motors; Hip Joint Replacement; PVD coating; TECHNOLOGY Materials science; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Teknisk materialvetenskap; Teknisk fysik med inriktning mot materialvetenskap; Engineering Science with specialization in Materials Science;

    Abstract : Surfaces exposed to wear always transform and typically a layer of new structure and composition is formed. This layer, often called tribofilm, changes the friction and wear properties. READ MORE

  5. 5. Hormone replacement therapy in rheumatoid arthritis

    University dissertation from Göteborg

    Author : Helena Forsblad d'Elia; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2003]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Rheumatoid arthritis; randomised controlled trials; hormone replacement therapy; estrogen; osteoporosis; bone mineral density; bone remodelling; cartilage remodelling; cytokines; insulin-like growth factor 1;

    Abstract : Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is 2-3 times more frequent in women as compared to men. The peak incidence in women coincides with the years around the menopause and the course of RA is also influenced by events associated with hormonal alterations. READ MORE
