This study compares cemented (Charnley) with noncemented (Honart Patel-Garches) total hip arthroplasty. 150 patients with osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and miscellaneous conditions were randomized into either group with 75 in each. Patients were evaluated over 5 postoperative years with examinations at 6 months, at 1 year, and then annually. Each(More)
Seven patients subjected to pelvic tumour resection involving the acetabular ring were analyzed with respect to function. In addition to conventional clinical assessment gait was analyzed objectively by means of an electronic walk-way and residual hip-muscle power tested by means of a Cybex II dynamometer. Functional results reported by the patients with(More)
The aim of this prospective follow-up study was to determine if gait measurements and/or clinical measurements could detect differences in treatment outcome between two surgical interventions in patients with knee osteoarthritis (OA). The patients were followed for 5 years after surgery. Forty patients, 55-70 years of age, with unilateral knee OA were(More)
Patients with knee osteoarthrosis are often referred for physiotherapy and many different types of treatment are given. The value of many of these treatments has been questioned. This study was intended to evaluate the effect of commonly used physiotherapy treatments in a training programme on patients with medial knee osteoarthrosis, scheduled for surgery.(More)
Dysphagia is a relatively common complication of anterior cervical spine surgery. Smoking has not been definitively assessed as a risk factor for dysphagia. This study examined risk factors for dysphagia, including smoking and pain severity. The authors performed a cross-sectional cohort study of 100 patients who underwent anterior cervical diskectomy and(More)
We studied 50 patients before and after unilateral total hip replacement, and compared them, using gait analysis, with 22 having staged bilateral operations. The average age of the patients was 65 years at the first operation. The mean follow-up was 53 months for the unilateral cases and 27 months, after the second THR, for the bilateral cases. The average(More)
The aim of this study was to analyse gait improvement one year after high tibial osteotomy and unicompartmental knee arthroplasty in patients with strictly unilateral osteoarthrosis of the medial compartment of the knee. Thirty-six patients, 18 men and 18 women, received a unicompartmental Brigham knee prosthesis and 23 patients, 10 men and 13 women, were(More)
In 119 patients with total hip replacement (THR) 61 were operated on with cemented (Charnley) and 58 with non-cemented (HP Garches) fixation. The assessment was performed by clinical examination and objective registration by gait analysis 6 and 12 months postoperatively. The group with cemented fixation (Charnley) demonstrated better results in all(More)
Between 1982-1985, 149 patients with trochanteric fractures were randomly selected for treatment with either Ender nails or a sliding nail plate. Ninety-two patients were able to perform walkway tests on an electronic walkway and were considered the best prospects for rehabilitation. Thirty-seven patients' fractures were stabilized with Ender nails and 55(More)
Walking ability was assessed in twenty patients before and one year after knee replacement with a cemented unicompartmental, Brigham prosthesis (mean age 63.4 years, nine women). All patients had moderate medial gonarthrosis. One year after surgery, knee function, assessed by the BOA score, self-selected and maximal walking speed as well as single limb(More)
