Outcome and risk of revision following shoulder replacement in patients with glenohumeral osteoarthritis.

Acta Orthop Suppl 2014 Jun;85(355):1-23

Department of Orthopedic Surgery Herlev University Hospital Herlev Ringvej 75, 2730 Herlev Denmark Phone: +45 38381926

This thesis includes four studies focusing on the functional outcome, shoulder-specific quality of life and risk of revision following shoulder replacement in patients with glenohumeral osteoarthritis without symptomatic rotator cuff pathology. The Danish version of WOOS, translated according to international standardized guidelines, had substantial psychometric properties comparable to the original version. It is recommendable to use WOOS in the evaluation of patients with glenohumeral osteoarthritis treated with shoulder replacement. Read More

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery Herlev University Hospital Herlev Ringvej 75 2730 Herlev +45 38683868

Fractures of the proximal humerus have been diagnosed and managed since the earliest known surgical texts. For more than four millennia the preferred treatment was forceful traction, closed reduction, and immobilization with linen soaked in combinations of oil, honey, alum, wine, or cerate. The bandages were further supported by splints made of wood or coarse grass. Read More

Decision making in surgical treatment of chronic low back pain: the performance of prognostic tests to select patients for lumbar spinal fusion.

Authors:
Paul Willems

Acta Orthop Suppl 2013 Feb;84(349):1-35

Department of Orthopaedics, Maastricht University Medical Centre, P.O. Box 5800, 6202 AZ Maastricht, The Netherlands.

Chronic low back pain (CLBP) is one of the main causes of disability in the western world with a huge economic burden to society. As yet, no specific underlying anatomic cause has been identified for CLBP. Imaging often reveals degenerative findings of the disc or facet joints of one or more lumbar motion segments. Read More

Fast-track hip and knee arthroplasty: clinical and organizational aspects.

Authors:
Henrik Husted

Acta Orthop Suppl 2012 Oct;83(346):1-39

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery 333, University Hospital of Hvidovre, Copenhagen, Kettegaard Alle 30 DK-2650 Hvidovre, Denmark.

Fast-track hip and knee arthroplasty aims at giving the patients the best available treatment at all times, being a dynamic entity. Fast-track combines evidence-based, clinical features with organizational optimization including a revision of traditions resulting in a streamlined pathway from admission till discharge – and beyond. The goal is to reduce morbidity, mortality and functional convalescence with an earlier achievement of functional milestones including functional discharge criteria with subsequent reduced length of stay and high patient satisfaction.

Stability-based classification for ankle fracture management and the syndesmosis injury in ankle fractures due to a supination external rotation mechanism of injury.

Authors:
Harri Pakarinen

Acta Orthop Suppl 2012 Dec;83(347):1-26

Division of Orthopedic and Trauma Surgery, Department of Surgery, Oulu University Hospital FI 90029 OYS Oulu, Finland.

The aim of this thesis was to confirm the utility of stability-based ankle fracture classification in choosing between non-operative and operative treatment of ankle fractures, to determine how many ankle fractures are amenable to non-operative treatment, to assess the roles of the exploration and anatomical repair of the AITFL in the outcome of patients with SER ankle fractures, to establish the sensitivities, specificities and interobserver reliabilities of the hook and intraoperative stress tests for diagnosing syndesmosis instability in SER ankle fractures, and to determine whether transfixation of unstable syndesmosis is necessary in SER ankle fractures. The utility of stability based fracture classification to choose between non-operative and operative treatment was assessed in a retrospective study (1) of 253 ankle fractures in skeletally mature patients, 160 of whom were included in the study to obtain an epidemiological profile in a population of 130,000. Outcome was assessed after a minimum follow-up of two years. Read More

Experimental evaluation of new concepts in hip arthroplasty.

Acta Orthop Suppl 2012 Apr;83(345):1-26

Orthopaedic Research Centre, St Olav Hospital, Trondheim University Hospital, Postbox 3250 Sluppen, NO-7006 Trondheim, Norway.

In this thesis we evaluated two different hip arthroplasty concepts trough in vitro studies and numerical analyses. The cortical strains in the femoral neck area were increased by 10 to 15 % after insertion of a resurfacing femoral component compared to values of the intact femur, shown in an in vitro study on human cadaver femurs. There is an increased risk of femoral neck fracture after hip resurfacing arthroplasty. Read More

Low back pain consumes a large part of the community's resources dedicated to health care and sick leave. Back disorders also negatively affect the individual leading to pain suffering, decreased quality-of-life and disability. Chronic low back pain (CLBP) due to degenerative disc disease (DDD) is today often treated with fusion when conservative treatment has failed and symptoms are severe. Read More

Microarchitectural adaptations in aging and osteoarthrotic subchondral bone issues.

Authors:
Ming Ding

Acta Orthop Suppl 2010 Feb;81(340):1-53

Department of Orthopaedics, Odense University Hospital, Institute of Clinical Research, University of Southern Denmark, Odense C, Denmark.

The human skeleton optimizes its microarchitecture by elaborate adaptations to mechanical loading during development and growth. The mechanisms for adaptation involve a multistep process of cellular mechanotransduction stimulating bone modelling, and remodeling resulting in either bone formation or resorption. This process causes appropriate microarchitectural changes tending to adjust and improve the bone structure to its prevailing mechanical environment. Read More

Centre for Bone- and Soft tissue Tumours, Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Haukeland University Hospital, NO-5021 Bergen, Norway.

Acrylic bone cements are in extensive use in joint replacement surgery. They are weight bearing and load transferring in the bone-cement-prosthesis complex and therefore, inter alia, their mechanical properties are deemed to be crucial for the overall outcome. In spite of adequate preclinical test results according to the current specifications (ISO, ASTM), cements with inferior clinical results have appeared on the market. Read More

Acta Orthop Suppl 2008 Aug;79(330):1-43

Orthopaedic Research Laboratory, Dept. of Orthopaedics, Aarhus University Hospital, Denmark.

Revision arthroplasty is a challenging aspect of the otherwise quite successful area of joint replacement surgery. The instable interaction between implant and host bone has often initiated a destructive process of inflammation and osteolysis, rendering the revision site sclerotic and with insufficient bone stock. One way of dealing with this is to build up a bed of tightly packed morselized bone graft to support the revision implant in a procedure often referred to as impaction grafting. Read More

Evaluation of Bernese periacetabular osteotomy: prospective studies examining projected load-bearing area, bone density, cartilage thickness and migration.

Acta Orthop Suppl 2008 Jun;79(329):4-43

Department of Orthopaedics, Aarhus University Hospital, Denmark.

The typical dysplastic hip joint is characterised by maldirection of the acetabulum and femoral neck, insufficient coverage of the femoral head focally and globally and erosions of the limbus acetabuli (1). An unknown number of persons with hip dysplasia will suffer from pain in hip or groin, decreased hip function and development of osteoarthritis at a young age. The Bernese periacetabular osteotomy is performed to prevent osteoarthritis in patients with hip dysplasia and has been carried out at Aarhus University Hospital, Denmark since 1996 with more than 500 osteotomies performed.

Gene therapy methods in bone and joint disorders. Evaluation of the adeno-associated virus vector in experimental models of articular cartilage disorders, periprosthetic osteolysis and bone healing.

Acta Orthop Suppl 2007 Apr;78(325):1-64

Orthopaedic Research Group, Aarhus University Hospital University of Aarhus, Denmark.

Background: Gene therapy is a technique that draws on the introduction of new genes into cells for the purpose of treating disease by restoring or adding gene expression. Numerous growth factors and other proteins with the ability to promote the regeneration of tissues in the locomotive system have been identified, but their clinical use is often hindered by delivery problems. In principle, these problems can be overcome by delivering the relevant genes, as the therapeutic substances thereby can be persistently produced directly by local cells at the site of diseases.

Chronic neck pain, a common cause of disability, seems to be the result of several interacting mechanisms. In addition to degenerative and inflammatory changes and trauma, psychological and psychosocial factors are also involved. One common type of trauma associated with chronic neck pain is whiplash injury; this sometimes results in whiplash-associated disorder (WAD), a controversial condition with largely unknown pathogenetic mechanisms.
