Hip arthroscopy is a rapidly expanding field in orthopaedics. Indications and surgical procedures are increasing. Although several studies report favourable clinical outcomes, further scientific evidence is needed for every aspect of this area. Accordingly, a registry for hip arthroscopy was developed. The purpose of this study is to describe the(More)
There is a lack of standardised outcome measures in Swedish for active, young and middle-aged patients with hip and groin disability. The purpose of this study was to adapt the English version of the international Hip Outcome Tool (iHOT12) patient-reported outcome instrument for use in Swedish patients and evaluate the adaptation according to the(More)
There is a lack of standardised outcome measures in Swedish for active, young and middle-aged patients with hip and groin disability. The purpose of this study was to adapt the Danish version of the Copenhagen Hip and Groin Outcome Score (HAGOS) patient-reported outcome instrument for use in Swedish patients and evaluate the adaptation according to the(More)
BACKGROUND Femoroacetabular impingement (FAI) is a common cause of hip pain and dysfunction among athletes. Although arthroscopic surgery is an established treatment option for FAI, there are few studies reporting detailed outcomes using validated outcome measurements specifically designed for young and active athletes. PURPOSE To report outcomes 1 year(More)
BACKGROUND The high loads on adolescent athletes' musculoskeletal system are known to cause morphological and degenerative changes in bone, intervertebral discs and joints. It has been suggested that the cam deformity of the proximal femoral head originates from a subclinical slipped capital femoral epiphysis (SCFE) as a result of non-physiological loading.(More)
The hip is a highly stable joint. Non-traumatic dislocation of the hip is extremely uncommon. In this article, we report two cases of non-traumatic hip dislocations following hip arthroscopy. In both cases, capsulotomy and ileopsoas tenotomy had been performed. These cases raise questions about the importance of the natural stabilisers of the hip. Level of(More)
Joint-related pain conditions from the spine and extremities are common among top athletes. The frequency of back pain has, however, been studied in more detail, and the frequency of low-back pain in top athletes in different high-load sports has been reported to be as high as 85%. Sport-related pain from different joints in the extremities is, however,(More)
There are several reports on the association between pubalgia and intra-articular hip disorders. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the long-term outcome in athletes who underwent tenotomy due to long-standing groin pain. A secondary purpose was evaluating the frequency of femoro-acetabular impingement (FAI) and its impact on the long-term outcome.(More)
BACKGROUND Onychomycosis is a rare disorder in children. Few studies exist on the incidence or prevalence of onychomycosis in children. OBJECTIVE To examine the epidemiology of childhood onychomycosis in Iceland during the period 1982-2000. METHODS Results from all mycological samples taken from children in Iceland from 1982 to 2000 were examined.(More)
Osteoarthritis (OA) of the hip is a common cause of hip pain. The arthroscopic management of patients with femoro-acetabular impingement (FAI) has been reported to yield good outcomes. The purpose of this study was to report on outcome following the arthroscopic treatment of patients with FAI in the presence of mild to moderate OA. Seventy-five patients(More)
