Shoulder replacement involves significant post-operative pain, which is often managed by continuous interscalene brachial plexus block. Catheter displacement and complications limit the beneficial effect of the block. Local infiltration analgesia (LIA) has provided good results in knee replacement. We aimed to assess the effectiveness of LIA for pain after(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Total knee arthroplasty (TKA) is associated with severe pain, and effective analgesia is essential for the quality of postoperative care and ambulation. The analgesic effects of adding an obturator nerve block (ONB) to a femoral triangle block (FTB) after TKA have not been tested previously. We hypothesized that combined ONB and(More)
Most studies of the pathogenesis of coronary heart disease occur between gene variants and biochemical or physiological variables known to be atherogenic. In many situations, however, the gene products are not necessarily known. We studied 17 families (n = 122) with mutations in the low density lipoprotein (LDL) receptor gene as a model in which to test(More)
Patients with homozygous familial hypercholesterolaemia (FH) caused by receptor-negative, low-density lipoprotein (LDL) receptor gene mutations have higher concentrations of LDL-cholesterol in plasma and earlier onset of cardiovascular disease (CVD) than patients homozygous for receptor-defective, LDL receptor mutations. In contrast, it is uncertain whether(More)
OBJECTIVES Existing algorithms of risk of coronary heart disease (CHD) do not pertain to patients with familial hypercholesterolaemia (FH), whose arteries have been exposed to hypercholesterolaemia since birth. We studied a cohort of FH patients to compare four diagnostic models of CHD: traditional risk factors of CHD (age, sex, cholesterol, hypertension,(More)
Post-operative pain is a problem for many patients and affects recovery, risk of post-operative complications and quality of life. A thorough preoperative evaluation, careful perioperative planning, identification, and individualized treatment of high-risk patients can reduce post-operative pain. Multimodal treatment combines different analgesic techniques(More)
