OBJECTIVES Personality types (combinations of traits) that take into account the interplay between traits give a more detailed picture of an individual's character than do single traits. This study examines whether both personality types and traits predict stress during medical school training. METHODS We surveyed Norwegian medical students (n = 421) 1(More)
Background and purpose - It has been suggested that preoperative posterior tilt of the femoral head may increase the risk of fixation failure in Garden-I and -II femoral neck fractures. To investigate this association, we studied a cohort of 322 such patients. Patients and methods - Patients treated with internal fixation between 2005 and 2012 were(More)
The authors reported Harris Hip Scores (HHS) with corresponding standard deviations (SDs) to assess hip pain and function in the two treatment groups. There were no significant differences in mean HHS scores at any followup time. The largest difference in HHS between the two groups was recorded after 6 months, with a mean HHS (SD) of 76.18 (12.5) in the IF(More)
INTRODUCTION Lateral radiographs are important for the evaluation of Garden I and II femoral neck fractures. These fractures appear undisplaced in the anteroposterior view, but posterior tilt of the femoral head may still be present in the lateral view. The influence of posterior tilt is, however, debated, which could be caused by the use of(More)
BACKGROUND Studies of elderly patients with Garden-I and Garden-II femoral neck fractures (FNFs) suggest that a preoperative posterior tilt of the femoral head of at least 20° increases the risk of fixation failure. A recently published treatment algorithm recommended hemiarthroplasty over internal fixation for elderly patients with Garden-I and Garden-II(More)
