BACKGROUND Accelerated perioperative rehabilitation protocols following total hip and knee arthroplasties are currently being implemented worldwide, but the cost-effectiveness of these protocols from a societal perspective is not known. We compared the cost-effectiveness of an accelerated perioperative care and rehabilitation protocol with that of a more(More)
One hundred and twenty-seven hips in 125 adults were treated for traumatic posterior dislocation during a period of two decades. Ninety-eight patients (100 hips) were available for follow-up examination at a minimum of five years (average, fourteen years) after injury. By both clinical and radiographic criteria eighty hips (80 per cent) had an excellent or(More)
To determine the prognosis and best treatment for patients who have a posterior dislocation of the hip associated with a fracture of the femoral head or neck (Grade IV, according to the classification of Stewart and Milford), we surveyed the records of 201 patients who had been treated for 203 posterior dislocations from 1958 to 1985 and selected the cases(More)
Thirteen cases of traumatic anterior and posterior hip dislocations in children were treated during a period of 25 years. All of them were available for follow up from 5 to 26 years postinjury. Twelve of the patients had their dislocation reduced within six hours after the injury. None of them developed any complication, and the range of movement was the(More)
To elucidate the factors important for development of avascular necrosis of the femoral head following traumatic posterior dislocation of the hip, 98 adult patients with 100 hip dislocations were reviewed after a minimum follow-up of 5 years. Avascular necrosis of the femoral head was found in only 4.8% of the hips reduced within 6 h, but in 52.9% of the(More)
BACKGROUND Approximately 12,000 hip and knee replacements were performed in Denmark in 2005. Accelerated perioperative interventions are currently implemented, but there is conflicting evidence regarding the effect. We therefore performed an efficacy study of an accelerated perioperative care and rehabilitation intervention in patients receiving primary(More)
BACKGROUND In Denmark, approximately 12,000 hip and knee arthroplasties were performed in 2006, and the hospital costs were close to US$ 110,000,000. In a randomized clinical trial, we have recently demonstrated the efficacy of accelerated perioperative care and rehabilitation intervention after hip and knee arthroplasty compared to current intervention(More)
The aim of this study was to compare the efficacy and safety of prolonged (35 days) thromboprophylaxis with a standard length (7 days) regimen of a low molecular weight heparin in patients undergoing total hip arthroplasty. The study was multicentre, randomised, double-blind, and prospective with two groups. Following seven days on a standard length regimen(More)
The nociceptive trigeminal inhibitory (NTI) splint has been claimed to decrease the electromyographic (EMG) activity of jaw-closing muscles and relieve symptoms of various types of temporomandibular disorders (TMD) and bruxism. The present study was designed to address the question about EMG-changes during sleep. Ten patients (age: 23-39 years) with a(More)
The purpose of this investigation was to test the hypothesis submitted by Osborne (1957), which proposed that the symptoms of compression ulnar neuritis, in most cases, result from compression on the ulnar nerve at the proximal border of the aponeurosis of the flexor carpi ulnaris muscle. Thirty-two simple decompression operations were performed on 31(More)
