    Nyckelord :AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; jumper’s knee; patellar tendinopathy; chronic pain; ultrasonography; doppler; neovascularisation; volleyball; weightlifting; Medicine; Medicin; Orthopaedics; ortopedi;

    Sammanfattning : The principal aim of the present thesis was to prospectively follow (clinical status and ultrasound + Doppler findings) the patellar tendons in the young elite volleyball players at the Swedish National Centre for high school volleyball in Falköping. In an Olympic weightlifter with chronic painful jumper´s knee, the effects of treatment with sclerosing injections followed by early instituted very heavy weightlifting training, was also evaluated.

    Sammanfattning : Chronic painful tendinopathy is a common cause for elite- and recreational athletes to stop or decrease the level of their sports activity. Recent research on innervation patterns, histopathology and possible pain mechanisms in tendons has led to an increased knowledge about the chronic painful tendon. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Musculoskeletal ultrasound : for diagnostics and treatment guidance in the orthopaedic outpatient care

    Författare :Kerstin Sunding; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :Accuracy;

    Sammanfattning : Ultrasound (US) has shown to be of great value in diagnostics and treatment of injuries and chronic pain disorders of the musculoskeletal system. Today, it is considered to be a suitable method when investigating superficially located tendons. Another exciting field of application is the use of US for guidance of different invasive treatments.
