Anteversion of the acetabulum and of the femoral neck was determined by use of computed tomography in 47 adults with normal hips and in 39 patients with osteoarthritis. The normal anteversion of the acetabulum was found to be 17 +/- 6 degrees (mean +/- standard deviation) and of the femoral neck 13 +/- 7 degrees. In the patients with osteoarthritis the(More)
The functional outcome of total hip arthroplasty for arthrodesed hips was evaluated. During the years 1979 to 1988, 55 arthrodesed hips were converted to total hip arthroplasties. Thirty-seven women and nine men were followed for a minimum of 5 years. Thirteen of the patients were very much satisfied with the operation, 19 were much satisfied, 7 were(More)
A survey of 37 young patients, 10 to 18 years of age, with lumbar intervertebral disc herniation is presented. Local physical findings and limitation in straight-leg raising are often more marked in the young than in adults, whereas pain may be slight or even absent. Neurological findings were normal in 40 per cent of the cases, and when deficits were(More)
STUDY DESIGN Prospective cohort study with 10-year follow-up. OBJECTIVE To evaluate long-term results after operative treatment with Cotrel-Dubousset (CD) instrumentation for adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS). SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA Limited knowledge exists in the evaluation of long-term function with quality of life measures after CD(More)
During the years 1988-1991, we performed 25 total hip replacements for completely dislocated hips in 15 women and 4 men with a median age of 54 (17-67) years. In all cases, femoral shortening at the subtrochanteric level was performed to obtain reduction of the hip. The patients have been followed for 3-7 years. 1 patient experienced sciatic nerve palsy, 1(More)
Seventy patients more than 16 years of age with untreated idiopathic scoliosis were followed-up for a mean period of 8.5 years. The majority of curves increased; 3 degrees per year before 20 of age and 1 degree per year after 20 years. Curves below 40 degrees increased significantly less than bigger curves and curves from 60-80 degrees increased the most.(More)
A survey of 274 late detected cases of CDH born in the years 1970--74 is presented. The incidence of late cases in southeast Norway was calculated to 2.2 per 1 000 live births. The hips of all patients were examined at birth, the majority by trained pediatricians, without disclosing any hip affections. 86% were females. Only 6.9% were delivered in the(More)
Congenital dislocations of the knee (CDK) are rare, occurring 40-80 times more rarely than congenital dislocation of the hip (CDH). In a multicentric study of the European Paediatric Orthopaedic Society, 56 cases of CDK were found in 46 babies. Many other malformations associated with CDK were noticed, and muscular abnormality was always found at the knee.(More)
