    Sammanfattning : During recent decades, lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS) has become the most common indication for spine surgery, a change that coincides with a higher worldwide prevalence of overweight and obesity. Thus, surgical treatment of LSS in the overweight and obese population is common and increasing in scope. LÄS MER

  2. 2. On Surgery for Lumbar Spinal Stenosis

    Författare :Peter Försth; Bengt Sandén; Helena Brisby; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; spinal stenosis; decompression; fusion; degenerative spondylolisthesis; Orthopaedics; Ortopedi; Neurosurgery; Neurokirurgi;

    Sammanfattning : The incidence of lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS) is steadily rising, mostly because of a noticeably older age structure. In Sweden, LSS surgery has increased continuously over the years and is presently the most common argument to undergo spine surgery. The purpose of the surgery is to decompress the neural elements in the stenotic spinal canal. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Determinants of outcome in lumbar spinal stenosis surgery

    Författare :Freyr Gauti Sigmundsson; Lund Ortopedi; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Lumbar spinal stenosis; outcome; pain; function; health related quality of life; decompression; spinal fusion;

    Sammanfattning : Lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS) is a degenerative disorder of the spine that predominantly affects the elderly. LSS is the most common spinal disorder leading to surgery in Sweden. Recent randomized controlled studies have showed better outcome with surgery compared to conservative treatment. LÄS MER

  4. 4. On lumbar spinal stenosis and disc herniation surgery

    Författare :Karl-Åke Jansson; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []

    Sammanfattning : Patients with spinal stenosis and disc herniation are most common in spine surgery. Few population based studies of these patients have been made and no studies of their health related quality of life (HRQOL) by the EQ-5D has been published. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Aspects of bone quality and risk assessments in fracture and elective orthopaedic patients

    Författare :Camilla Bergh; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Fracture; Fracture incidence; Epidemiology; Mortality; Osteoporosis; Frailty; Spinal stenosis; Bone quality; Bone mineral density;

    Sammanfattning : Background: Bone quality, bone strength, and bone remodelling are important in many orthopaedic conditions and can have an impact on fracture incidence, bone healing, implant failure, and different outcome aspects. There is relatively sparse information on fracture incidence and mortality both for all fractures compiled and for some of the individual fracture locations. LÄS MER
