Sammanfattning : Background: Axis fractures are a common injury in the elderly population. Treatment is often complicated due to osteoporosis and patient comorbidity. Knowledge of the incidence of these fractures, as well as their treatment, outcome and mortality rate, will improve knowledge and decision-making processes for this fragile group of patients. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Acute confusional state (ACS) or delirium according to DSM-III-R holds a central position in the medicine of old age. ACS is a common and sometimes the only symptom of diseases and medical complications in the elderly patient. LÄS MER
3. Epidemiology, Radiology and Histology of Atypical Femoral Fractures : Development of understanding
Sammanfattning : Bisphosphonates have been used successfully in the prevention of osteoporosis-related fractures for over two decades. Only recently an association between bisphosphonate use and femoral insufficiency fractures – atypical femoral fractures – has been found.Bone remodeling is necessary to maintain a healthy skeleton.

Sammanfattning : Advanced polymer composites are commonly based on thin prepreg plies stacked at different angles to form a laminate. When the laminate is loaded, intralaminar transverse cracking in off-axis plies is one of the first damage modes. In the presented thesis, cross-ply laminates are used to study the transverse cracking phenomenon. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : In the presented thesis analytical modeling of elastic properties degradation and modeling of damage evolution in composite laminates is performed. Transverse cracking initiation on a fiber/matrix level is briefly studied by testing model composites and cross-ply laminates. LÄS MER
