OBJECTIVE To evaluate pre- and postoperative nutritional status in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and osteoarthritis (OA). METHODS Preoperative dietary intake was assessed by a food frequency questionnaire, and postoperative dietary intake by food records. Anthropometric and laboratory measurements were assessed 1 day before and 10 days after(More)
Analysis of 57 traumatic dislocations of the hip, excluding central dislocations, is reported. No anterior dislocations occurred. Road accidents caused most of the dislocations and several patients, most of them young men, had additional serious injuries. Grading the dislocations according to Stewart and Milford (15) is useful for the prognosis, and should(More)
OBJECTIVE To report the incidence, patterns of care, and outcomes of oligometastatic non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) in a rural practice setting in Norway. MATERIALS AND METHODS A retrospective analysis was conducted of all patients with stage IV NSCLC at the initial diagnosis who received active treatment in the central part of Nordland, a rural(More)
The aim of this study is to address the question “does early palliative care in addition to standard oncology care or late additional palliative care improve patterns of terminal care in patients who died from non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC)?” We performed retrospective single-institution study of 286 patients. Palliative care was provided by a dedicated(More)
We reviewed the early and late results of 103 consecutive intertrochanteric osteotomies of the hip. One year postoperatively, 70 per cent of the operations had had a good effect; 11 per cent, some effect; and 19 per cent, no effect. After five years 51 per cent of the hips still showed benefit from the operation and after ten years 30 per cent still showed(More)
Introduction. Takayasu arteritis is a rare disease affecting the aorta and its main branches, causing arterial claudication and end-organ ischemia, including stroke. The etiology is unknown but is believed to be autoimmune. An association between Takayasu arteritis and tuberculosis has been suggested, but the possible relation is unclear. Case Presentation.(More)
BACKGROUND Effective symptom palliation can be achieved with low-dose palliative thoracic radiotherapy. In several studies, median survival was not improved with higher doses of radiation. More controversy exists regarding the impact of higher doses on 1- and 2-year survival rates. Therefore, a comparison of survival outcomes after radiotherapy with(More)
BACKGROUND Palliative thoracic radiotherapy is a common treatment for patients with incurable lung cancer. A recent study suggested that a prognostic score based on performance status and N and M stage predicts survival and might support decision-making (eg, when deciding about fractionation). Our aim was to perform a validation study in an independent,(More)
