Five separate biopsy samples for bacterial culture were taken at primary total hip arthroplasty in patients without signs of infection and at reoperation of patients with infectious and noninfectious loosening of the prosthesis. Based on the results of the culture, on serologic results and on the erythrocyte sedimentation rate, bacteria of clinical(More)
In 14 healthy female subjects, the effects of needle stimulation (acupuncture) on skin and muscle blood flow were investigated using a non-invasive custom-designed probe and photoplethysmography (PPG). In randomised order, 2–7 days apart, three modes of needle stimulation were performed on the anterior aspect of the tibia: superficial insertion (SF),(More)
In a prospective controlled multicenter study, the prophylactic effect of gentamicin-containing bone cement on postoperative infections in total hip arthroplasties was compared with that of systemically given antibiotics; 812 arthroplasties were randomly assigned to an antibiotic and 821 to a gentamicin-cement group. When the patients had been followed for(More)
A review with a longer observation period is performed of a previously published double-blind investigation of the prophylatic value of cloxacillin against late infections after total hip replacements; In addition, a retrospective patient material is examined. The total material consisted of 1065 total hips. 15.4 per cent deep, late infections were found in(More)
Subsequent displacement of nondisplaced or minimally displaced fractures of the lateral humeral condyle while immobilized in plaster may contribute to severe complications. The possibility of assessing the stability of such fractures may be a help in planning the initial treatment. Our prospective investigation of 112 children aged 1-11 years aimed at(More)
Seventy-seven total hip arthroplasties complicated by deep infection were treated by reoperation and fixation of a new prosthesis with gentamicin-containing cement. The infection was proved in each case by positive bacterial cultures. Systemic antibiotic treatment was continued for six months postoperatively. Sixty hips were considered healed; the patients(More)
The aim of this study was to validate a non-invasive optical probe for simultaneous blood flow measurement at different vascular depths combining three photoplethysmography (PPG) channels and laser Doppler flowmeter (LDF). Wavelengths of the PPG were near-infrared 810 nm with source-to-detector separation of 10 and 25 mm, and green 560 nm with(More)
We used photoplethysmography (PPG) to monitor blood flow changes in the human anterior tibial muscle during arterial occlusion and during isometric and concentric contractions. Single-fibre laser-Doppler flowmetry (LDF) was used as a reference in 12 healthy subjects (5 men, 7 women; mean age 24 years). Post-exercise hyperaemic muscle blood flow (MBF) was(More)
Hematogenous infections may appear at any time after joint replacement operations. As distinguished from delayed infections where general symptoms of infection are absent, hematogenous infections cause malaise, chills and fever, usually of the septic type. Roentgenograms of the joint at an early stage of hematogenous infection do not show any sign of(More)
