The use of the BPTB-autograft is a very common method for ACL reconstruction. Nevertheless, the problem of the typical donor-site-morbidity is unresolved. Recently, a transplant of quadriceps tendon, with an attached bone block (BQT) has been increasingly relied upon. The purpose of this study was to examine the clinical results of a group of patients after(More)
BACKGROUND The use of an allograft as a suitable transplant is still open to debate, in terms of donor morbidity, implantation reaction, and long-term results, as well as the risk of disease transmission. HYPOTHESIS The clinical results 2 and 6 years after implantation of a bone-patellar tendon-bone allograft (Tutoplast) and bone-patellar tendon-bone(More)
Various studies have shown that the operative treatment of a freshly ruptured Achilles tendon is generally considered to be more appropriate than a nonoperative regimen. However, complications in open reconstructions are reported to occur in 11-29%. The method used in this study reduced the risk of complications arising from operation, but simultaneously(More)
Allografts were used in the 80s and 90s to replace ruptured anterior cruciate ligaments (ACL) in the reduction of donor site morbidity. It was evident that in comparison with the autologous cruciate ligament grafts (ligamentum patellae) using Allografts (Tutoplast), a noticeably higher rupture rate appeared. The results from the work submitted serve as a(More)
The displaced proximal humeral fracture continues to be a problem and remains the “unsolved fracture”. Many guidelines for surgical treatment of different types of these fractures have been described. A conservative functional therapy is recommended as well as a closed or open reposition and internal fixation. Other authors prefer the primary prosthetic(More)
