Article
Background: A new potential target for multimodal pain management is the group-II metabotropic glutamate receptor subtypes, which can be activated by N-acetylcysteine. We investigated whether pre-emptive administration of N-acetylcysteine leads to a reduction in postoperative pain after laparoscopic inguinal hernia repair. Methods: Sixty America...
Article
Objective To assess which structural abnormalities on knee MRI are associated with development of osteophytes in middle-aged subjects without radiographic knee osteoarthritis. Design We included subjects from the Osteoarthritis Initiative, aged 40-55 years, Kellgren & Lawrence grade 0 in both knees, and knee MRIs from both knees available at basel...

Objective To estimate the genetic contribution to traumatic and degenerative meniscus tears for men and women across the lifespan. Methods We linked the Swedish Twin Register with individual-level national healthcare data to form a 30-year, population-wide, longitudinal twin cohort. To study genetic contribution to meniscus tears, we estimated the...

Objectives To study bone shape changes as a potential early feature of post-traumatic structural knee OA development, we estimated the association between meniscal status in the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injured knee and longitudinal condyle changes in bone surface area. Design We used data from the KANON trial, including 121 young ACL-inju...
Article
Background: Since the introduction of arthroplasty fast-track protocols, many studies have investigated their effect on complications and length of hospital stay. However, few fast-track studies have examined the long-term effects on cost and health-related quality of life after total knee arthroplasty (TKA). This study aimed to specifically analy...

Background and aims: Studies on long-term sequelae of gastroschisis are scarce. The limited data suggest increased abdominal complaints in young children. To provide proper counseling for both parents and patients, more information on long-term outcome is needed. This study aims to evaluate long-term outcome regarding GI function, gastroesophageal...
Article
Objectives: To estimate the risk of clinically diagnosed knee osteoarthritis (OA) after different types of knee injuries in young adults. Methods: In a longitudinal cohort study based on population-based healthcare data from Skåne, Sweden, we included all persons aged 25-34 years in 1998-2007 (n=149 288) with and without diagnoses of knee injuri...
Article
Objectives: To determine development of new and worsening meniscal damage over 5 years after acute anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury comparing rehabilitation plus early ACL reconstruction ('early-ACLR') versus rehabilitation with optional delayed ACL reconstruction ('optional-delayed-ACLR'). Methods: We used knee MRIs from the only randomi...
Article
Background: The aims of this study were to investigate the safety of combined intravenous, oral and topical tranexamic acid (TXA) in primary total knee replacement. We assessed dose-related efficacy on hemoglobin level, transfusion, length of stay and thromboembolic complications. In addition, TXA safety in patients with previous history of thromb...
Article
We present a patient with an asymptomatic unilateral swelling of the anterolateral thigh. MRI showed hypertrophy of the tensor fasciae latae muscle due to an underlying gluteus minimus tendon tear. Abductor tendon tears can present with swelling of the thigh due to secondary tensor fasciae latae muscle hypertrophy.

In primary care, meniscal tears are difficult to detect. A quick and easy clinical prediction rule based on patient history and a single meniscal test may help physicians to identify high-risk patients for referral for magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). The study objective was to develop and internally validate a clinical prediction rule (CPR) for t...
Article
Study design: Diagnostic accuracy study using a cross-sectional design. Objectives: To determine the interexaminer reliability and the diagnostic accuracy in primary care of 1 existing weight-bearing meniscal test, the Thessaly test, 1 new weight-bearing test, the deep squat test, and 1 non-weight-bearing test, the joint-line tenderness test. B...

Background: A pneumatic tourniquet is often used during total knee arthroplasty (TKA). However, tourniquet application is often associated with an increased incidence of adverse events and soft tissue damage due to high mechanical pressure. This could potentially result in delayed recovery. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the effect of...

Study design: Systematic review with meta-analysis. Objectives: To review and critically appraise the literature for factors that increase the risk for meniscal tears. Background: Meniscal tears are an important cause of disability and time lost from work, and are associated with a 4-fold increase in the long-term risk of knee osteoarthritis....
