Short-term outcome of 1,465 computer-navigated primary total knee replacements 2005–2008. A report from the Norwegian Arthroplasty Register
(Informa Healthcare, 2011-06)
Background and purpose: Improvement of positioning and alignment by the use of computer-assisted surgery (CAS) might improve longevity and function in total knee replacements, but there is little evidence. In this study, ...
Higher revision risk for unicompartmental knee arthroplasty in low-volume hospitals
(Taylor & Francis, 2014)
Background and purpose — Some studies have found high complication rates and others have found low complication rates after unicompartmental knee arthroplasty (UKA). We evaluated whether hospital procedure volume ...
Complications after intramedullary nailing of femoral fractures in a low-income country. A prospective study of follow-up, HIV infection, and microbial infection rates after IM nailing of 141 femoral fractures at a central hospital in Malawi
(Informa Healthcare, 2013-10)
Background: Some surgeons believe that internal fixation of fractures carries too high a risk of infection in low-income countries (LICs) to merit its use there. However, there have been too few studies from LICs with ...
Improved survival for anatomic total shoulder prostheses: Results of 4,173 shoulder arthroplasties reported to the Norwegian Arthroplasty Register from 1994 through 2012
(Taylor & Francis, 2015-07-30)
Background and purpose — Previously, implant survival of total shoulder prostheses was reported to be inferior to that of hemiprostheses. However, the use of total prostheses has increased in Norway due to reported ...
Low infection rates after 34,361 intramedullary nail operations in 55 low- and middle-income countries. Validation of the Surgical Implant Generation Network (SIGN) Online Surgical Database
(Informa Healthcare, 2011-12)
Background: The Surgical Implant Generation Network (SIGN) supplies intramedullary (IM) nails for the treatment of long bone fractures free of charge to hospitals in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). Most ...
Worse patient-reported outcome after lateral approach than after anterior and posterolateral approach in primary hip arthroplasty
(Taylor & Francis, 2014)
Background — The surgical approach in total hip arthroplasty (THA) is often based on surgeon preference and local traditions. The anterior muscle-sparing approach has recently gained popularity in Europe. We tested ...
