We analyzed various prognostic factors in 112 children operated on for Perthes' disease (Catterall's groups II–IV); special attention was paid to acetabular changes and postoperative containment. The radio-graphic results of 126 intertrochanteric femoral varus osteotomies were analyzed 2–16...
Screw-shaped implants of commercially pure titanium and polymerized methyl methacrylate were inserted into the rabbit tibia. The animals were divided into two groups, and the implants were unscrewed after 5 weeks and 9 months, respectively. After both intervals, removal torque was greatest for...
A bovine collagen sponge containing gentamicin was applied locally in 10 patients with chronic osteomyelitis who were then followed for 1 year postoperatively. No adverse effects or recurrence of infections was observed. The release of gentamicin from the sponge was more complete and rapid than...
The mechanisms involved in the disease process in arthrosis are largely unknown, with genetics, joint malalignment, overload or trauma, obesity, and aging as some of the known or suspected contributing factors. Even less well known is how these general factors are translated into disease...
Forty-two patients, aged 29 (17–42) years when they sustained an intraarticular fracture of the distal end of the radius, were reexamined after 16 (2–26) years. More than two thirds of the fractures were caused by high-energy trauma. Subjectively, 34 patients had excellent or good results,...
We performed a prospective randomized study of 61 cases of arthrodesis of the first metatarsophalangeal joint in 56 patients. In the first group, full weight bearing was allowed after 2–4 days and in the second group at 4 weeks. Radiographic union of the arthrodesis in the two groups did not...
In a prospective randomized study that included 63 consecutive thumbs with injuries of the ulnar collateral ligament of the metacarpophalangeal (MCP) joint of the thumb, plaster cast immobilization was compared with functional treatment with a splint. The splint allowed flexion and extension of...
For tibial fractures, half-frames, such as the Hoffmann fixation device, sometimes fail when subjected to weight-bearing loads. Because the joints of the Hoffmann system are known to slip, which could lead to frame failure, three interfaces of the standard Hoffmann joint were tested at different...
