Ongoing projects

1. Limb lengthening and reconstruction (Joachim Horn)

“Growth modulation in correction of leg length and axial deviations”; PhD project, Anne Berg Breen

  • The timing of percutaneous epiphysiodesis for leg length discrapency – an evaluation of four different prediction methods
  • A comparison of 3 different methods for assessment of skeletal age when treating leg length discrepancies: An inter- and intra-observer study
  • Comparison of Different Bone Age Methods and Chronological Age in Calculation of Remaining Growth Around the Knee

“Idiopathic increased femoral anteversion”; PhD project Anders Grønseth

  • “Derotational osteotomy in the femur with either percutaneous osteotomy and intrameduallry nailing or with an open approach and plating – a randomized controlled trial”
  • “Three-dimensional gait analysis before and after derotational osteotomy in patients with idiopathic increased femoral anteversion”
  • “Long-term follow-up of untreated patients with increased femoral anteversion”

2. Children’s hip

“A nationwide Perthes study – a long term follow-up with more than 20 years” (Stefan Huhnstock)

“Risk factors for hip displacement in cerebral palsy - a population-based study of 121 non-ambulatory children“ (Terje Terjesen)

3. Mixed Reality, Holographic technology (Ola Wiig)

“OrthoNav-mixed reality/holographic technology in orthopaedic surgery”, PhD project Inger Gruenbeck, MSc, The Intervention Centre, OUH (Ola Wiig)

5. Skeletal dysplasia

Establishment of a “Norwegian Skeletal Dysplasia Register” in collaboration with the Norwegian National Advisory Unit on Rare Diseases, Department of Medical Genetics and Pediatric Endocrinology. The register will be a base for broad interdisciplinary research within this field. (Joachim Horn)

“The use of gait analysis in skeletal dysplasia – a literature review”, in collaboration with ERN BOND (European Reference Network for Rare Bone Disorders) (Joachim Horn)

“Orthopaedic clinical decision making in skeletal dysplasia – a survey among ERN BOND and EPOS members” (Joachim Horn)
