OBJECTIVE To examine lung cancer survival and the impact of comorbidity in the Central Denmark Region from 2000 to 2011. METHODS We performed a population-based cohort study of lung cancer patients diagnosed during four 3-year calendar periods (2000-2002, 2003-2005, 2006-2008, and 2009-2011) in the Central Denmark Region. The Danish National Registry of(More)
OBJECTIVE We examined the completeness of TNM staging of small-cell (SCLC) and nonsmall- cell (NSCLC) lung cancer in the national Danish Cancer Registry (DCR) and whether staging varied by year of diagnosis, gender, age, degree of comorbidity, or presence of histopathological diagnosis. METHODS We identified all patients with SCLCs and NSCLCs registered(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE The risk of complications in cirrhosis patients after orthopedic surgery is unclear. We examined this risk after total hip arthroplasty (THA) or total knee arthroplasty (TKA). PATIENTS AND METHODS Using Danish healthcare registries, we identified all Danish residents who underwent a THA or TKA for primary osteoarthritis in the(More)
BACKGROUND Alcoholic fatty liver disease comprises alcoholic pure steatosis and alcoholic steatohepatitis. These diseases are prevalent, but their prognostic outcome is uncertain, particularly regarding the impact of hepatic inflammation. The paucity of data based on liver biopsy diagnoses contributes to this uncertainty. AIM To examine the cirrhosis and(More)
AIMS To describe incidence, prevalence, hospitalization rates and survival for alcoholic liver disease (ALD) in Denmark 2006-2011. METHODS Using nationwide healthcare registries we identified all Danish residents with a hospital diagnosis of ALD and computed standardized incidence, prevalence, and hospitalization rates in 2006-2011, age- and birth(More)
OBJECTIVES Clinical management of certain cirrhosis complications has improved over the last two decades. In this study we aimed to examine whether mortality among Danish alcoholic cirrhosis patients has decreased during this period. METHODS In this historical cohort study we used nationwide hospital data to identify Danish alcoholic cirrhosis patients(More)
OBJECTIVE Linkage and association studies of bipolar affective disorder (BAD) point out chromosome 12q24 as a region of interest. METHODS To investigate this region further, we conducted an association study of 22 DNA markers within a 1.14 Mb region in a Danish sample of 166 patients with BAD and 311 control individuals. Two-hundred and four Danish(More)

BACKGROUND The Danish National Registry of Patients (DNRP) is a potentially valuable resource for monitoring national trends in the use of chemotherapy and evaluating the benefits and harms of alternative treatments among colorectal cancer (CRC) patients in Denmark. However, the validity of chemotherapy reporting in the DNRP is unknown. In this study, we(More)
Background and purpose - There are limited data on risk factors for avascular necrosis of the hip, but cirrhosis has been proposed as a risk factor. We examined the association between cirrhosis and incidence of total hip arthroplasty for avascular necrosis. Methods - We used nationwide healthcare data to identify all Danish residents diagnosed with(More)
