Adverse effects of cyclooxygenase (COX) inhibitors on bone healing have previously been demonstrated in diaphyseal fracture models in animals. In spite of that, they are widely used as postoperative analgesics in orthopaedic surgery. After joint replacement, a bone repair process starts at the interface between bone and cement. If this process is disturbed, the prosthesis may never become rigidly fixed to the bone, leading to migration and with time loosening. This thesis investigates the effects of a selective COX-2 inhibitor (parecoxib or celecoxib) on bone healing in metaphyseal bone in a rat model and on knee prosthesis migration after total knee replacement...
