We studied the inhibitory effect of indomethacin on fracture healing in 135 young, male rats after oral administration compared with local application into the fracture. A closed mid-diaphyseal fracture of the left femur was performed in all the rats. The fractures were not immobilized. In one experiment, half of the animals received indomethacin via a(More)
The effect of indomethacin (2 mg/kg/day) on the healing of closed unimmobilized femoral fractures was examined in rats. A standard femoral fracture was produced in 205 male adolescent rats, and three different experiments were done. In a long-term experiment, the rats were treated with either indomethacin or placebo for 29 days and fracture healing followed(More)
A patient with an ankle joint fracture-dislocation was preoperatively treated with indomethacin. As in previous animal experiments, indomethacin was found to have an inhibitory effect on bone formation. It is suggested that indomethacin should be used with caution if periosteal fracture healing is anticipated. Die Autoren haben einen Patienten mit einer(More)
The healing of closed, non-immobilized femoral fractures in rats was seriously impaired by indomethacin given orally at a dose of 2 mg/kg daily. The fracture haematomas were larger and disappeared later in the animals receiving indomethacin. Mechanical strength testing of fracture healing showed that maximal tensile strength, elastic stiffness and maximal(More)
In a patient, at revisional Christiansen total hip arthroplasty, silver-impregnated bone cement was used as prophylaxis against deep infection. Five years later the patient developed serious neurological deficits, and the prosthesis was loose. The loose Christiansen prosthesis and the silver-impregnated bone cement were removed and a Charnley prosthesis(More)
 Objective. Screening for congenital dysplasia of the hips (CDH) of new-borns, mostly by Ortolani’s or Barlow’s tests, is widely performed, but nevertheless dysplasias are still discovered late. Ultrasonographic screening has been reported to reduce the number of these cases. The present investigation is intended to evaluate the cost-effectiveness of such a(More)
Anterior displacement of the tibial tuberosity combined with shaving of the diseased cartilage was used as treatment for chondromalacia patellae in 32 knees in 28 consecutive patients and in one patient with chondromalacia femoris. The patients were aged 17 to 57 years. One patient had earlier sustained a serious injury to the ligaments of the knee,(More)
The effect of indomethacin on haversian remodelling in the radius was studied in 16 rabbits. An osteotomy and a saw-cut almost through the bone were made in the middle and distal parts of the right radius, respectively. In order to obtain biological osteosynthesis in the osteotomy and the saw-cut the rabbits were not treated in any way during the following(More)

The effect of indomethacin medication on bone tissue resorption and formation was assessed by qualitative and quantitative microscopy in vivo in 18 rabbit ear chambers in 12 rabbits. Five bone tissue experiments were carried out during half a year using the rabbits as their own controls. One daily oral indomethacin dosage of 10 mg/kg body weight given for 3(More)
