In most studies, the injection technique is not standardized, which makes it challenging to compare outcomes. Questions/purposes: (1) Does injection with autologous blood, dextrose, or needle perforation only at the extensor carpi ra...

In the biomedical paradigm all symptoms and limitations are ascribed to discrete pathophysiology. However, a biopsychosocial health model that accounts for the important influence of mind-set and circumstances on illness may be preferable in the vast majority of cases. Some of the shortcomings of the biomedical model include an overreliance on test...
Background and purpose — Radiostereometric analysis (RSA) is an accurate method for measurement of early migration of implants. Since a relation has been shown between early migration and future loosening of total knee and hip prostheses, RSA plays an important role in the development and evaluation of prostheses. However, there have been few RSA s...
The hand represents one of the most remarkable expressions of humanization of the anterior limb. The anterior limb, at first ambulatory, underwent continuous evolution acquiring innumerable new functions. In the course of human evolution the hand has undergone continual structural and functional adaptations, characterized, among others, by enrichme...
Background: Little is known about revision surgery of radial head arthroplasty. The aim of this study was to report on the clinical and radiographic outcome of revision arthroplasty of the elbow with a bipolar metallic radial head prosthesis. Methods: Between 2006 and 2013, we used either a press-fit or cemented RHS bipolar radial head prosthesi...
The elbow joint is a complex joint which combines a stable flexion and extension mechanism with a wide range of rotation and provides a stable position for a functional hand. To fulfill all these tasks, the elbow consists of three joints formed by the distal humerus, the proximal ulna, and the radial head: the radiohumeral joint (RHJ), the ulnohume...
