  1. 1. Clinical and arthroscopic assessment of wrist ligament injuries and instability

    Detta är en avhandling från Göteborg : University of Gothenburg

    Författare :Jonny K Andersson; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2016]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; wrist; wrist arthroscopy; carpal ligaments; scapholunate ligament; lunotriquetral ligament; triangular fibrocartilage complex; distal radio-ulnar joint; instability; magnetic resonance imaging; forearm rotation torque; children; adolescents;

    Sammanfattning : Wrist ligament injuries are common after trauma, especially when concomitant dislocated radius fractures are present. The diagnostics of scapholunate (SL), lunotriquetral (LT) and triangular fibrocartilage complex (TFCC) injuries are challenging and most often dependent on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) examination or invasive arthroscopy.

  2. 2. Periulnar Injuries Associated with Distal Radius Fractures

    Detta är en avhandling från Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Författare :Johan Scheer; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2011]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Triangular fibrocartilage complex; Distal radius fractures; Wrist injuries; Distal radioulnar joint; Ulnocarpal stability; MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Sammanfattning : Residual dysfunction after a fracture of the distal radius is most often mild but may give rise to significant impairment especially in the younger active population. The symptoms often manifest around the distal ulna when loading the hand or rotating the forearm. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Scaphoid fractures Studies on diagnosis and treatment

    Detta är en avhandling från Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Författare :Bertil Vinnars; Uppsala universitet.; [2008]
    Nyckelord :Surgery; Scaphoid Bone; Wrist Joint; Wrist Injuries; Fracture Healing; Cost of Illness; Health Care Costs; Outcome Assessment Health Care ; Arthroplasty; Radiography; Health status; Kirurgi;

    Sammanfattning : Scaphoid fracture is most common in young individuals of working age. Without adequate diagnosis and treatment, long-term results are poor. Operative treatment is being recommended increasingly often instead of a long time in cast, although there is no evidence-based support for its superiority. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Injuries among the elderly study of fatal and non-fatal injury events

    Detta är en avhandling från Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Författare :Harmeet Sjögren; Umeå universitet.; Umeå universitet.; [1994]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; elderly; injury; prevention; traffic; home; fall; crash; disease; bicyclist; pedestrian; cost; vehicle;

    Sammanfattning : In view of the expected increase in the proportion of elderly in the population in most western countries, we studied injuries among the elderly (>60 years) by investigating hospital-treated injuries in inpatients and outpatients, and fatal injuries.One-year Hospital Injury Data - Even though the elderly made up only 15% of the injured in one year, they accounted for 42% of the total cost of trauma medical care, showing that injuries among the elderly place a disproportional burden on the health care system.

  5. 5. Alpine ski sport injuries in Swedish Lapland

    Detta är en avhandling från Umeå : Umeå university

    Författare :Curt Made; Umeå universitet.; [2009]
    Nyckelord :skiing; wounds and injuries; Orthopaedics; ortopedi;

    Sammanfattning : Downhill skiing is associated with recreation, youth, speed, aerials and crowded courses which carry increased risk of injuries. The aim of this study was to evaluate downhill sport injuries in a Swedish ski resort.Material and methodsIn a case-control study ongoing 1989/90–2006/07, 3,696 injured skiers were registered. LÄS MER
