Prevention of venous thromboembolism after knee arthroscopy with low-molecular weight heparin (reviparin): Results of a randomized controlled trial.
PURPOSE Deep venous thrombosis (DVT) is a common, important complication of major orthopaedic surgery, particularly knee arthroplasty. Knee arthroscopy is increasingly performed on an outpatientExpand

Implant fixation by bone ingrowth.
The term osseointegration referred originally to an intimate contact of bone tissue with the surface of a titanium implant; the term bone ingrowth refers to bone formation within an irregular (beads,Expand

Low-energy extracorporeal shock-wave treatment (ESWT) for tendinitis of the supraspinatus. A prospective, randomised study.
We have performed a controlled, randomised study to analyse the effects of low-energy shock-wave therapy (ESWT) on function and pain in tendinitis of the supraspinatus without calcification. ThereExpand

Prevention of heterotopic bone formation after total hip arthroplasty: a prospective randomised study comparing postoperative radiation therapy with indomethacin medication
Abstract Heterotopic ossification (HO) after total hip arthroplasty is known to be a major complication with an impact on the functional outcome. Efforts have been made to prevent the occurrence ofExpand

A comparative clinical outcome evaluation of smooth (10–13 year results) versus rough surface finish (5–8 year results) in an otherwise identically designed cemented titanium alloy stem
BackgroundWe retrospectively compared the influence of surface finish with respect to the long-term durability of a cemented titanium alloy stem of the same design but different surfaceExpand

Size and direction of hip joint forces associated with various positions of the acetabulum.
When total hip replacement is performed, the position of the acetabular component may affect wear and component survival time. We considered the questions: In what way does displacement of the hipExpand

Ten- to 14-year results of a ceramic hip prosthesis.
One hundred total hip arthroplasties with a cementless aluminum oxide socket and ball with different types of cemented metal femoral stems were performed from 1974 to 1979. All were primaryExpand
