BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE There is no consensus on the best rehabilitation regime after uncemented total hip arthroplasty. Theoretically, bone ingrowth into the implant should benefit from initial partial weight bearing. We investigated whether the degree of postoperative weight bearing influences the periprosthetic bone mineral density (BMD) and/or the(More)
INTRODUCTION In patients with osteoarthritis of the hip (OAH), trochanteric fractures are much more common than femoral neck fractures. One reason may be altered bone composition in the proximal femurs. OAH often leads to a fixed external rotation of the hip, leading to difficulties in positioning during DXA measurements. We compared BMD in OAH-affected(More)
PURPOSE To determine the benefit of ShearWave™ Elastography (SWE™) in the ultrasound characterization of BI-RADS® 3 breast lesions in a diagnostic population. MATERIALS AND METHODS 303 BI-RADS® 3 lesions (mean size: 13.2 mm, SD: 7.5 mm) from the multicenter BE1 prospective study population were analyzed: 201 (66%) had cytology or core biopsy, and the(More)
PURPOSE There is little evidence to support immediate weight bearing after uncemented total hip arthroplasty (THA). METHODS Thirty-seven patients with unilateral osteoarthritis of the hip received a press-fit cup. Cup stability was assessed with radiostereometry (RSA) over five years. Patients were randomised to immediate full weight bearing, or partial(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIMS The baseline radiostereometric analysis (RSA) is usually performed during the first postoperative week. We investigated the micromotion of two uncemented press fit acetabular cups during the first week after total hip arthroplasty. MATERIAL AND METHODS All study patients had unilateral osteoarthritis of the hip and received an(More)
INTRODUCTION Comorbidities and polypharmacy complicate the treatment of geriatric patients with acute orthopedic injuries. A correct medication history and an updated medication list are a prerequisite for safe treatment of these debilitated patients. Published evidence suggests favorable outcomes with comanaged care. The aim of this study was to assess the(More)
BACKGROUND Large multi-centre studies of clavicle fractures have so far been missing. The aim of this observational study was to describe the epidemiology, classification and treatment of clavicle fractures in the The Swedish Fracture Register (SFR) that collects national prospective data from large fracture populations. METHODS Data were retrieved from(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate whether a postoperative weight-bearing regimen affects changes in bone mineral density and body composition after uncemented total hip arthroplasty, and to investigate the changes over a 5-year period after the surgical procedure. DESIGN Secondary analysis of a previous randomized controlled trial. METHODS A total of 39 patients(More)
