BACKGROUND Patients with focal cartilage defects in the knee may suffer from both pain and functional impairment. Treatment options are often insufficient. It is not known, however, to what extent their complaints affect quality of life, compared with other knee disorders. Knee Injury and Osteoarthritis Outcome Score (KOOS) is a validated global knee score(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Long-term follow-up studies after total knee replacement (TKR) using an LCS rotating platform have shown survival rates of up to 97%. Few studies have evaluated short-term functional outcome and its improvement over time. We determined the time course of functional outcome as evaluated by the knee injury and osteoarthritis outcome(More)
AIMS The aim of this prospective randomised study was to compare the time course of clinical improvement during the first two years following a closing or opening wedge high tibial osteotomy (HTO). It was hypothesised that there would be no differences in clinical outcome between the two techniques. PATIENTS AND METHODS Between 2007 and 2013, 70(More)
Testes ascending from the normal scrotal position to an undescended position is common, but not well known. The case notes of 37 boys who underwent orchidopexy between 1980 and 1994 at Nordfjordeid Hospital, Norway, were collected. None of the boys had previously undergone inguinal surgery. All patients underwent testicular examination at the time of birth.(More)
BACKGROUND To report time dependent functional improvement and predictive risk factors for failure when the load in varus knees with medial osteoarthritis is shifted from the medial to the lateral knee compartment. METHODS Forty-nine consecutive patients (52 knees), mean age 47 (31-64) years, underwent a high tibial opening-wedge valgus osteotomy(More)
To evaluate the time-dependent functional outcome of patients with lateral knee osteoarthritis with increased valgus treated with lateral opening-wedge osteotomy to shift the load from the lateral to the medial compartment of the knee. Twenty-four consecutive patients with lateral knee osteoarthritis were treated with distal femoral opening-wedge varus(More)
The aim of the present study was to examine changes in radiological variables in a prospective randomized study comparing opening wedge (OW) and closing wedge (CW) techniques of high tibial osteotomy (HTO). Our hypothesis was that there would be no differences in joint line angles or correction accuracy between the two groups, that patellar height would(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE 10-year survival rates after unicompartmental knee replacement (UKR) have been up to 97% in single-center studies, but they have been as low as 80% in studies from arthroplasty registers. Few studies have evaluated short-term functional outcome and its improvement with time. We determined the time course of functional outcome as(More)
