  1. 1. Radiography of the mandible prior to endosseous implant treatment. Localization of the mandibular canal and assessment of trabecular bone

    Author : Christina Lindh; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; trabecular pattern; bone mineral density; bone mineral content; tomography; panoramic radiography; radiography; mandible; endosseous implantation; Odontology; stomatology; Odontologi;

    Abstract : Mandibular autopsy specimens were examined with different radiographic techniques in order to evaluate the visibility of the mandibular canal and the measurement accuracy of distances related to the mandibular canal. Hypocycloidal, spiral and computed tomography (CT) were superior to periapical and panoramic radiography in visualising the mandibular canal. READ MORE

  2. 2. Total knee arthroplasty : aspects on improved fixation in the younger patient

    Author : Anders Henricson; Kjell G Nilsson; Tore Dalén; Sören Toksvig-Larsen; Umeå universitet; []
    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. READ MORE

  3. 3. Acetabular Revisions. Risk Factors and Prediction of Re-revision

    Author : Maziar Mohaddes; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Osteoarthritis; Hip; Register studies; Radiostereometry; Acetabular revision; Trabecular metal;

    Abstract : Hip replacement is a successful intervention when treating patients with hip osteoarthritis. Approximately 10% of all patients undergoing primary hip replacement surgery require further surgical interventions (revisions) during their lifetime. Acetabular component (cup) failure is the most common reason for a revision. READ MORE

  4. 4. Effects of GH and liver-derived IGF-I on growth and metabolism

    Author : Klara Sjögren; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; GH; IGF-I; Insulin; GHRH; Somatostatin; GHS; Body growth; Body composition; Liver; Bone mineral content; Bone mineral density.;

    Abstract : Growth hormone (GH) exerts major effects on body growth and metabolism. Insulin-like growth factor (IGF) is expressed in response to GH and is known to mediate many of the effects of GH. The largest expression of IGF is found in the liver although it is expressed in virtually every tissue of the body. READ MORE

  5. 5. The role of S100A4 protein as a regulator of inflammation and bone metabolism in experimental arthritis

    Author : Li Bian; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : S100A4; arthritis; animal model; bone; inflammation;

    Abstract : S100A4 belongs to the family of calcium-binding S100 proteins and modulates cell proliferation, cytoskeletal rearrangement, cell motility, and angiogenesis. Increased levels of S100A4 expression correlate with high incidence of metastasis of cancers. READ MORE
