During a prospective one-year study (1988) all fractures of the distal radius in people over 20 years old were registered in Bergen, Norway. Six hundred patients with 609 fractures were treated. The incidence was 38/10000 population, and 79% of the fractures occurred in women. The age-specific incidence in women increased rapidly after the menopause and(More)
BACKGROUND The graft choice for anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACLR) is controversial. Hamstring tendon (HT) autografts and patellar tendon (PT) autografts are the most common grafts used and have shown similar subjective and objective outcomes. PURPOSE To compare the revision rate between HT and PT autografts used in ACLR in Norway and to(More)
During 1988 we recorded all Colles' fractures (n = 530) in a prospective study in the city of Bergen. According to defined criteria, the fractures were treated by immobilisation in plaster cast with or without reduction; reduction and immobilisation by a Hoffman external fixation device; or open reduction and internal fixation. Included in the present study(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE The Norwegian Cruciate Ligament Register (NCLR) was founded in 2004. The purpose of the NCLR is to provide representative and reliable data for future research. In this study we evaluated the development of the registration rate in the NCLR. METHODS The Norwegian Patient Register (NPR) and the electronic patient charts (EPCs) were(More)
BACKGROUND Compared with a patellar tendon autograft (PT), a hamstring tendon autograft (HT) has an increased risk of revision after anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACLR). There are no studies analyzing whether this can be explained by inferior fixation devices used in HT reconstruction or whether the revision risk of ACLR with an HT or a PT is(More)
