Serial anteroposterior (AP) radiographs of the weight-bearing pelvis and hips were taken of 29 patients with total hip replacement (THR). For constant positioning the patient stands with straight knees on a board with a block between the heels. A U-shaped mercury level strapped to the patient provides a horizontal reference line on the radiograph. On the(More)
The subject of our study was 546 renal transplant recipients with a graft survival for minimum 12 months. Of these, 29 renal recipients (5.3%) developed aseptic necrosis of the femoral head. The examination revealed that there were no significant differences between the renal recipients with hip necrosis and the control group in the total quantities of(More)
Segmental blood pressure criteria for below-knee amputations were assessed retrospectively. 40 patients underwent 44 below-knee amputations for advanced lower limb ischaemia. Preoperative systolic blood pressure measurements using a Doppler device as a distal sensor were performed on 31 limbs to be amputated. Healing occurred in all limbs with calf systolic(More)
The occurrence of aseptic hip necrosis was investigated in 546 renal transplant patients (639 transplants) with graft survival for a minimum of 12 months. Aseptic hip necrosis developed in 39 hips in 29 patients (5.3%) from 3 to 121 months (mean 22 months) after the renal transplantation. There was no sex-related difference in incidence of hip necrosis. The(More)
In both emergency and chronically infected cases, the exposed knee joint cavity should be immediately covered using a simple method which provides well-vascularized elastic tissue over the joint. We used a gastrocnemius musculocutaneous or muscle flap over the exposed knee joint in three emergency cases of complex, massive avulsion injury of the lower(More)
The series comprises 100 patella fractures treated during the period 1974-1977. Seventy-eight patients were treated operatively. The most common operative method was partial excision, which was performed in 36 patients. Twenty-four patients were treated with equatorially placed cerclage wires, while 10 patients were treated with tension band fixation only(More)
