56 consecutive patients who had primary arthroplasties of the hip or the knee were randomly selected for either autologous or homologous blood transfusion. For autologous transfusion, the Solcotrans Orthopaedic device was used. Patients who received autologous transfusion had 65 percent of the post-operatively drained blood reinfused; compared to the(More)
Aluminum ions (Al) and chromium (III) ions (Cr), as they exist in aqueous solution at neutral pH, adsorb onto calcium hydroxyapatite crystals (HAP) and severely inhibit their dissolution process, when present in concentrations less than 1 μM. Iron (III) ions (Fe), at concentrations up to 10 μM, have no effect on the dissolution process of HAP. The(More)
A comparison between the functional end results of Colles' fractures, treated in two different hospitals, was performed by a follow up study of 100 patients from each hospital 18-24 months after fracture. The difference between the requirements of resources in the two hospitals were mainly: treatment of patients as outpatients or during admission and the(More)
Aortic valve stenosis carries a poor prognosis after the onset of symptoms. Surgical aortic valve replacement (SAVR) has been the standard treatment for this condition, but some patients are not candidates for surgery. Randomized trials of transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) have proven both safety and efficacy in patients who are inoperable or at(More)
Forty three patients with unilateral traumatic amputations were reviewed as to the use of prostheses and employment consequences of the amputation. Seventeen of 19 below-elbow amputees, and 12 of 24 above-elbow amputees used their prostheses. Non-users compared to users of prostheses were characterized by: 1) Higher level of amputation 2) Non-dominant arm(More)
The healing in 20 through-knee amputations was compared with preoperatively measured skin perfusion pressure, determined as the minimal external pressure required to stop the washout of isotopes injected intradermally 10 cm distal to the knee joint. Out of 18 amputations with a skin perfusion pressure of above 20 mmHg only 2 failed to heal, whereas 2 out of(More)
Fifty-six patients undergoing hip or knee replacements were randomized to receive autologous drain-blood transfusion or homologous blood transfusion at postoperative need. A reinfusion of 65% of the postoperative drainage blood loss was achieved. The number of homologous blood transfusions fell concomitantly from 2.3 to 0.6 after hip replacement and from(More)
