OBJECTIVES To compare the effect of graded physiotherapeutic training of the rotator cuff versus arthroscopic subacromial decompression in patients with subacromial impingement. METHODS Randomised controlled trial with 12 months' follow up in a hospital setting. Ninety consecutive patients aged 18 to 55 years were enrolled. Symptom duration was between(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE After total knee arthroplasty with conventional surgical approach, more than half of the quadriceps extension strength is lost in the first postoperative month. Unicompartmental knee arthroplasty (UKA) operated with minimally invasive surgery (MIS) results in less operative trauma. We investigated changes in leg-extension power (LEP)(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE There is disagreement in the literature about the importance of patellofemoral joint degeneration and knee pain for the outcome of unicompartmental knee arthroplasty (UKA). We therefore investigated the importance of selected predictors including patellofemoral joint degeneration and the location of preoperative knee pain for the(More)
INTRODUCTION As the only femoral stem, the Exeter stem has shown acceptable results with Boneloc cement, but no long-term results have been published. The aim of this study was to evaluate the 20-year performance of Boneloc-cemented primary Exeter hip arthroplasty. MATERIAL AND METHODS From March 1992 to June 1994, a total of 200 consecutive(More)
The efficiency of prophylactic antibiotic therapy in amputation surgery was studied in a prospective, randomized trial of a first-generation cephalosporin (cephalothin) compared with a narrow-spectrum betalactam stable penicillin (methicillin). Eighty-eight patients received cephalothin 2 g x 4 on the day of operation, while 86 patients received methicillin(More)
The purpose of this study was to evaluate implant migration of the fixed-bearing Sigma® medial unicompartmental knee arthroplasty (UKA). UKA is a regularly used treatment for patients with medial osteoarthritis (OA) of the knee. UKA has a higher revision rate than total knee arthroplasty. Implant migration can be used as a predictor of implant loosening. A(More)
BACKGROUND Endoscopic carpal tunnel release with a single portal technique has been shown to reduce sick leave compared to open carpal tunnel release, claiming to be a less invasive procedure and reducing scar tenderness leading to a more rapid return to work, and the purpose of this study was to identify prognostic factors for prolonged sick leave after(More)
We carried out a prospective randomized trial in 38 patients to compare intravenous regional anaesthesia with local anaesthesia in endoscopic carpal tunnel release using the Agee single-portal technique. There was no significant difference in reported pain during surgery. Immediately after surgery, patients in the local anaesthesia group reported(More)
ADP-induced platelet aggregation in vitro has been studied in 90 normal controls and in 30 patients with ischemic heart disease (IHD) and 22 with peripheral thromboatherosclerosis (PTA). The sensitivity to ADP was defined by the threshold concentration which produced secondary aggregation with an amplitude corresponding to not less than 80% of the(More)
