Arthritis Patients Walk Thanks To New Technique By KAIUN MOSBR MONTREAL (CP) A Swed- ish doctor says a surgical proce- dure that involves inserting metal hinges in knee joints is enabling patients who have been confined to wheelchairs for years with rheumatoid arthritis to walk again. "Some of the patients are as young as 29 and the oldest is Dr. Borge Walldius of Stockholm said in an interview "some haven't walked for at least 10 to 12 years." Dr. Walldius said he began developing the technique in 1951. Tlie insertion of the hinge in- volves sawing off part of the original bone. After the opera- tion, the patient remains in a cast for three weeks, The doctor said he has used his "hinge-joint" on almost 150 patients and that surgeons in "many parts of Europe, the U. S. and some in Canada" are also employing this procedure. MAY AID OTHER JOINTS "While we do this kind of op- eration mostly in relation to the knee, it can also be done on hip joints or even elbow joints af- fected severely by the disease." Rheumatoid arthritis results in the inflammation of the moist membrane found inside all bone joints. The membrance secretes fluids which keep the joints well lubricated. The membrane swelling or In- flammation can spread to the elastic cartilage between the bones, causing acute pain and reduced mobility. Dr. Walldius explained that when the cartilage buffer er- odes, the rubbing together of the bare joints becomes so pain- ful that the affected limbs are "locked" into a position. Dr. Waildius was in Montreal to address a three-day confer- ence on surgical management at the Royal Victoria Hospital.
