The functional outcome of shoulder replacement is related to the condition of the rotator cuff. Rotator cuff disease is a common problem in candidates for total shoulder arthroplasty; this study relates the functional status of the rotator cuff to the initial stability of a cementless glenoid implant. A 3D finite element model of a complete scapula was used(More)
INTRODUCTION To determine if structural bone parameters obtained from dual energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) contribute to the prediction of progression of hip osteoarthritis (OA) and to test if the difference between the most affected (OA) hip and the contralateral hip adds to this prediction. METHODS The study group involves a prospective cohort of 189(More)
Mechanical loading has stimulating effects on bone architecture, which can potentially be used as a therapy for osteoporosis. We investigated the skeletal changes in the tibia of ovariectomized rats during treatment with whole body vibration (WBV). Different low-magnitude WBV treatment protocols were tested in a pilot experiment using ovariectomized rats(More)
Surgery remains the mainstay of treatment for potentially curable colon cancer. Otherwise, the surgical stress response might increase the likelihood of cancer dissemination during and after cancer surgery. There is growing evidence that the type of anaesthesia during cancer surgery plays a role in the metastatic process. Therefore, we assessed if the(More)
Although peripheral primitive neuroectodermal tumour (pPNET) and extra-osseous Ewing's sarcoma (EES) are thought to be closely related neoplasms, their clinical behaviour differs considerably. To determine the clinical relevance of the Schmidt classification scheme for differentiating pPNET and EES, 20 tumour specimens of poorly differentiated round cell(More)
Antiresorptive drugs are widely used to prevent osteoporotic fractures in men and women. Large clinical trials have shown vertebral fracture risk reductions up to 50%, resulting from relatively small increases of 3–8% in bone mineral density (BMD). We developed a computer model that mimics bone turnover in human vertebral cancellous bone during menopause(More)
In majority of patients who are subjected to prostate biopsies, no prostate cancer (PCa) is found. It is important to prevent unnecessary biopsies since serious complications may occur. An artificial neural network (ANN) may be able to predict the risk of the presence of PCa. Included were all patients, who underwent transrectal ultrasound-guided prostate(More)
Introduction: Extracorporeal Shockwave (ESW) therapy has shown to be effective in the treatment of non-unions and can enhance healing of fresh fractures(1). Enhanced proliferation and differentiation of osteoprogenitor cells have been shown in rats after a single ESW treatment(2). These studies used focused shockwaves; nowadays unfocused shockwaves can be(More)
