Chapter
The demand for meniscal allografts has recently increased due to the extended indications for meniscus allografting. It is still a matter of debate the more appropriate technique to preserve menisci allografts in an acceptable condition until transplantation. When looking for a graft to be transplanted, one must wonder which properties the preserve...
Article
The aim of the current study was to assess the effect of immediate and delayed transplantation on articular cartilage. Icelandic sheep had surgery on the medial menisci in both knees. The knees were divided into four groups; 16 control knees had sham surgery, 15 knees had meniscectomy, 14 knees had immediate allograft transplantation, and 14 knees...
Article
To determine whether differences in the knee joint movement pattern of a forward lunge could be quantified in healthy subjects and in anterior cruciate ligament deficient subjects who were able to return to the same activity level as before their injury (copers) and in those who were not (non-copers). The movement patterns of the injured leg of the...
Article
The purpose of the study was to develop a method to record intramuscular electromyogram (EMG) from the iliopsoas muscle and to relate this activity to the kinetics during the soccer place kick. Seven skilled soccer players performed 3 maximal velocity place kicks. The kicks were filmed with a high-speed camera (400 Hz) and EMG recordings were obtai...
Article
The principal functions of the meniscus are load transmission and shock absorption, based on the meniscal collagen architecture, the biochemical fluid composition, and the proteoglucan-collagen meshwork. The mobile menisci transmit 50-90% of load over the knee joint, depending on knee flexion angle, femoral translation and rotation. The meniscus co...
Article
Animal studies have shown that meniscus allografts and tendon autografts generally heal to the capsule, are revascularized and repopulated with host cells. In animals, neither meniscal allografts nor tendon or fat autografts gain the properties of a normal meniscus. Meniscus allografts and tendon autografts are promising as both seem to offer some...
Article
Even though basic scientific knowledge about the meniscal loading pattern may advocate restrictive rehabilitation after meniscus repair, experience and one controlled study favour accelerated rehabilitation. The current protocols for rehabilitation after meniscal substitution follow personal experience with parameters such as pain, effusion, lockin...
Article
The objective of this study was to examine the gross changes after meniscal allograft transplantation with reference to the development of degenerative articular cartilage changes (DACC) and to examine the transplant behavior. The medial menisci of both knees in 32 Iceland sheep were operated on with either sham operation (C6), medial meniscectomy...
Article
This study was designed to evaluate the injuries in indoor and in beach volleyball, and to compare the injury pattern in the two different types of volleyball. Injuries in 295 volleyball players were recorded during the beach volleyball season 1993 and during the following indoor volleyball season 1993 to 1994. The method of enquiry was two identic...

During the 1993-1994 volleyball season, injuries to players in the two Danish elite divisions were registered by means of a questionnaire survey. Eighty per cent of the players returned the questionnaire. A total of 70 female players reported 79 injuries and 67 male players reported 98 injuries, representing an overall incidence of 3.8 injuries per...

Systemic cytotoxic therapy with platinum containing regimens has been reviewed in 53 patients with progressive disease of basal cell carcinoma. The overall response rate in 46 evaluable patients was 83% with complete remission obtained in 17 patients (37%), and partial remission in 21 patients (46%). Eight patients (17%) did not respond to platinum...
Article
In order to assess the routine use of prophylactic antibiotics (AB) in arthroplastic surgery in Denmark, questionnaires were sent to all Danish orthopaedic departments and all general surgical departments that perform orthopaedic surgery. Fifty-six departments (93%) returned the questionnaires. All departments use prophylactic AB in primary knee an...
Article
Continuous registration of operations and wound infections was used to demonstrate the effect of prophylactic antibiotics in hip fracture osteosynthesis. In order to monitor wound infections and other postoperative complications in an orthopaedic department, 2 years' data on 688 patients with hip fractures, were entered into a personal computer pro...
