  1. 1. Anterior Cruciate Ligament injury, Patient Variables, Outcomes and Knee Osteoarthritis

    Författare :Paul Neuman; Enheten för led- och mjukvävnadsforskning; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; meniscal injury; knee osteoarthritis; knee radiography; Anterior cruciate ligament injury ACL ; delayed gadolinium-enhanced MRI of cartilage dGEMRIC ;

    Sammanfattning : The ruptured anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) leads to immediate symptoms that severely affect the individual and receives great attention among the scientific community, yet there is still no consensus on the optional form of treatment. An ACL injury is also a well known high risk factor for the development of knee osteoarthritis (OA) some decades later. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Knee function, knee proprioception and related brain activity following anterior cruciate ligament injury

    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; anterior cruciate ligament; knee; proprioception; joint position sense; kinematics; injury prevention; sports; functional magnetic resonance imaging; brain; reliability; validity; sjukgymnastik; Physiotherapy; Sports Medicine; idrottsmedicin; rehabiliteringsmedicin; Rehabilitation Medicine;

    Sammanfattning : Background: Injury of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) may have negative effects on the short- and long-term function and proprioception of the knee joint. However, existing tests of knee function are often sports-related and less relevant for assessment in the very long term and there remains no ‘gold standard’ test of knee proprioception. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Long term prognosis of intraarticular knee injuries

    Författare :Wolfgang Maletius; Stefan Lohmander; Linköpings universitet; []
    Nyckelord :knee joint; knee function; sports injury; arthroscopy; meniscus; anterior cruciate ligament; articular cartilage; osteoarthrosis; activity level; quality of life; MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Sammanfattning : Intraarticular knee injuries, still are a challenge for proper treatment in Sports Medicine today .The increasing life expectancy as well as the patient expectation to maintain a sufficiant physical activity up to high ages gives the topic an increasing publicity. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Human studies evaluating dGEMRIC as a prognostic tool for knee osteoarthritis

    Författare :Henrik Owman; Malmö Institutionen för kliniska vetenskaper; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Delayed gadolinium-enhanced MRI of cartilage dGEMRIC ; knee; cartilage; glycosaminoglycan; anterior cruciate ligament injury; meniscal injury; osteoarthritis; joint space narrowing; osteophyte;

    Sammanfattning : Osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common joint disorder worldwide, causing joint pain and stiffness. The current gold standard for diagnosing knee OA is radiography. However, the disease has often progressed well beyond the point of no return once radiographic cartilage changes become visible. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Generalized Joint Hypermobility and Specific Knee Laxity: Aspects of influence on the Anterior Cruciate Ligament Injured Knee

    Författare :David Sundemo; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Anterior cruciate ligament; Knee injury; Knee laxity; Generalized joint hypermobility;

    Sammanfattning : Injury to the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) is one of the most serious sports-related injuries, with significant short- and long-term morbidity. Generalized joint hypermobility (GJH) and specific knee laxity are factors that have been associated with an increased risk of ACL injury and inferior postoperative outcome, but the state of the evidence is unclear and the available information is limited.
