Sammanfattning : BACKGROUND. Various techniques of surgical intervention have been suggested to promote bone densityand volume; however, the predictability of such techniques is not always sufficiently supported by preclinicalevaluations.AIM. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : The aim of this thesis was to study onlay bone grafting in the adult rat to improve graft incorporation and perservation of graft size. In 167 adult isogeneic lewis rats, the size maintenance and bone formation at the graft-host interface of uni- and bicortical onlays positioned in various environments and treatments were investigated.

Sammanfattning : This study indicated that posteromedial and anterior tibia stress fractures are two entities with different etiology, pathoanatomy and natural course. In both cases clinical examination and bone scintigram were conclusive for the diagnosis. LÄS MER
4. Anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction : Patellar tendon, Gore-Tex, Kennedy LAD and tibia tunnel ingrowth
Sammanfattning : Anterior cruciate ligament injury can induce permanent functional impairment in the physically active individual. Different methods to repair or replace the tom ligament have been tried and investigated. This thesis investigates three principally different grafts used in ACL reconstruction; autogenous tendon, stent/augmentation and prosthetic. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : This investigation has developed and evaluated methods for measuring eccentric muscle functionand loading of the human lower extremity, including isokinetic tests of knee extensor muscleperformance and a comprehensive in vivo method for conditions of functional loading. Formeasurement of knee extensor muscle performance, a protocol of 100 repetitive maximal actionsat 90¡ s~' was applied using a Biodex isokinetic dynamometer. LÄS MER
