BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Chronic Achilles tendinopathy is a painful condition and there are often unsatisfactory results with conservative treatment. Extracorporal shock-wave therapy (ESWT) has been introduced for the management of various soft tissue conditions. The objective of the study was to compare the effect of supplementing conservative treatment of(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the long-term outcome after intramedullary nailing of tibial shaft fracture. DESIGN Retrospective, cross-sectional study. SETTING Level I, Trauma Center. METHODS Retrospective review of 294 patients treated with intramedullary nailing after tibial shaft fracture from 1998 to 2008. The participants completed Knee injury and(More)
BACKGROUND A single injection of bupivacaine after wound closure reduces the need for analgesics and increases flexion after total knee replacement (TKR). We have therefore studied the effect of continuous injection of morphine and ropivacaine after TKR on range of movement and length of hospital stay. PATIENTS AND METHODS In an open intervention study,(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this systematic review was to examine the link between training characteristics (volume, duration, frequency, and intensity) and running related injuries. METHODS A systematic search was performed in PubMed, Web of Science, Embase, and SportDiscus. Studies were included if they examined novice, recreational, or elite runners between(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate if running distance to first running-related injury varies between foot postures in novice runners wearing neutral shoes. DESIGN A 1-year epidemiological observational prospective cohort study. SETTING Denmark. PARTICIPANTS A total of 927 novice runners equivalent to 1854 feet were included. At baseline, foot posture on each(More)
Older people are at increased risk of non-union after spinal fusion, but little is known about the factors determining the quality of the fusion mass in this patient group. The aim of this study was to investigate fusion mass bone quality after uninstrumented spinal fusion and to evaluate if it could be improved by additional direct current (DC) electrical(More)
BACKGROUND Self-reported knee pain is highly prevalent among adolescents. As much as 50% of the non-specific knee pain may be attributed to Patellofemoral Pain Syndrome (PFPS). In the short term, exercise therapy appears to have a better effect than patient education consisting of written information and general advice on exercise or compared with placebo(More)
Although epidemiologic studies of tibial plateau fractures have been conducted, none have included geographically defined populations or a validated fracture classification based on computed tomography (CT). The goals of this study were to provide up-to-date information on the incidence and basic epidemiology of tibial plateau fractures in a large(More)
To determine the tolerability and efficacy of eletriptan in patients who had discontinued oral sumatriptan due to lack of efficacy or intolerable adverse events (AEs) during previous clinical treatment (not a controlled trial). Eletriptan is a potent, selective 5-HT1B/1D receptor agonist with beneficial pharmacokinetic properties compared with sumatriptan.(More)
INTRODUCTION The literature lacks recent population-based epidemiology studies of the incidence, trauma mechanism and fracture classification of tibial shaft fractures. The purpose of this study was to provide up-to-date information on the incidence of tibial shaft fractures in a large and complete population and report the distribution of fracture(More)
