We describe a new operative procedure for patients with chronic trochanteric bursitis. Between March 1994 and May 2000, a trochanteric reduction osteotomy was performed on ten patients (12 hips). All had received conservative treatment for at least one year. Previous surgical treatment with a longitudinal release of the iliotibial band combined with(More)
PURPOSE In this double-blinded, randomised clinical trial, the aim was to compare the analgesic effects of low doses of intra-articular Bupivacaine and Ropivacaine against placebo after knee arthroscopy performed under general anaesthesia. METHODS A total of 282 patients were randomised to 10 cc NaCl 0.9%, 10 cc Bupivacaine 0.5% or 10 cc Ropivacaine(More)
Distal migration of the femoral component of a total hip replacement by as little as 0.33 mm during the first 6 postoperative months is predictive of the need for revision many years later. Because the fate of the prostheses is defined so early, it is unlikely that wear particles initiate loosening. However, the progression from the stage of early migration(More)
We evaluated the long-term results of 116 total hip replacements with a superolateral shelfplasty in 102 patients with osteoarthritis secondary to developmental dysplasia of the hip. After a mean follow-up of 19.5 years (11.5 to 26.0), 14 acetabular components (12%) had been revised. The cumulative survival at 20 years was 78%, with revision for loosening(More)
BACKGROUND Fractures of the proximal humerus are associated with a profound temporary and sometimes permanent, impairment of function and quality of life. The treatment of comminuted fractures of the proximal humerus like selected three-or four-part fractures and split fractures of the humeral head is a demanding and unresolved problem, especially in the(More)
Between 1974 and 1989, 315 primary total hip replacements (274 patients) were done using the cemented Weber Rotation prosthesis and standardized operative technique, which was modified for the stem in 1978. After the first postoperative year, all patients had routine clinical and radiologic examinations at 2-year intervals. Twenty-one patients (22 hips)(More)
This prospective cohort study compared opening wedge high tibial osteotomy with use of the Puddu plate and the Vitoss synthetic cancellous bone versus closing wedge high tibial osteotomy with use of the AO/ASIF L-plate, focusing on complications (nonunions, infections, loss of correction, reoperations) and patient satisfaction (visual linear analog scale).(More)
INTRODUCTION Hip fractures are a leading cause of mortality and disability worldwide, and the number of hip fractures is expected to rise to over 6 million per year by 2050. The optimal approach for the surgical management of displaced femoral neck fractures remains unknown. Current evidence suggests the use of arthroplasty; however, there is lack of(More)
Early prosthesis migration predicts late clinical failure, as also does the shape or position of, e.g., a femoral stem. These factors appear unrelated to wear particles. Thus, the initiation of the loosening process has other causes. After this process has started (i.e., the prosthesis migrates), particles may play a role, at least by inhibiting new bone(More)
High fluid pressures can be present throughout the effective joint space after total hip replacement and can extend locally to the bone implant interface. A new experimental implant model was developed to study whether local fluid pressure can induce osteolysis at a bone implant interface. Twelve mature rabbits received a titanium implant that was allowed(More)
