Effects of electromagnetic fields (EMFs) on human cell lines were described in numerous studies, but still many questions remain unanswered. Our experiment was designed with the aim of studying the effects of EMFs on the metabolic activity of chondrocytes in vitro. Human chondrocyte in vitro cultures, cultured in medium supplemented with 20 % fetal calf(More)
PURPOSE OF THE STUDY In the study we used in vitro cultivated autologous chondrocytes in combination with osteochondral allografts for the treatment of local defects of articular cartilage on the animal model (rabbit). MATERIAL Chondrocytes for in vitro cultivation were harvested by biopsy of articular cartilage of rabbit. For the monolayer cultivation we(More)
PURPOSE OF THE STUDY The aim of the study was to evaluate the clinical and radiographic results of total hip arthroplasty (THA) with the Metha short hip stem and their comparison with the outcomes of THA using a conventional cementless stem. MATERIAL AND METHODS A total of 30 Metha stems and 30 standard Biocontact stems implanted in the period from 2007(More)
PURPOSE OF THE STUDY Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has the highest sensitivity of all methods for the diagnosis of intra-articular knee injuries. In spite of this, its benefit for the decision-making algorithm is questionable. The aim of this study was to evaluate the real situation in our regional conditions. MATERIAL AND METHODS The medical records(More)
PURPOSE OF THE STUDY The aim of the study was to evaluate the incidence of osteopenia and osteoporosis in the patients elected to cementless total hip replacement. MATERIAL AND METHODS The group evaluated comprised 100 patients with primary or secondary forms of coxarthrosis who underwent cementless total hip arthroplasty (THA). The results of(More)
The authors discuss the risk of mechanical loosening and protrusion of a cemented endoprosthesis of the hip joint after operation which is one of the few possibilities of palliative treatment in patients with rheumatoid arthritis. They deal in particular with specific features of surgical approaches whereby they select a modified method described by(More)
PURPOSE OF THE STUDY The aim of the study was to investigate the involvement of osteoporosis during remodelling of the proximal femur after uncemented total hip arthroplasty (THA) and the effect of bisphospohonate treatment on these changes. MATERIAL AND METHODS Sixty evaluated patients with non-cemented THA were divided into three groups on the basis of(More)
The authors present a report on 9 patients (out of which five were female and four male patients) in the age group ranging from 34 to 55 years, who underwent in the period between 1 January 1982 and 31 December 1987 the revision of three intervertebral spades due to the unilateral lumbo-ischiadic syndrome. Operations of such an extent were performed only(More)
Rabbit chondrocytes were cultivated in vitro using the collagen/hyaluronan membrane. The membrane did not show any adverse effects on chondrocyte viability during in vitro cultivation. The inoculated cells grew without any negative changes. According to the histochemical analyses: (i) hematoxylin and eosin; (ii) safranin O; and (iii) rabbit anti-human(More)
