Twenty-three patients with acute displaced three- and four-part fractures of the proximal humerus, including seven patients with associated shaft involvement, were treated with the Polarus intramedullary interlocking nail using a closed technique. At the 1-year follow up, the median Neer scores were 89 and 60 for the three- and four-part fractures,(More)
BACKGROUND Halofantrine, an antimalarial drug used in endemic areas such as the tropics is mainly metabolized by CYP3A4 to the active metabolite N-desbutylhalofantrine. Fluconazole, an antifungal agent and an inhibitor of CYP3A4 is an established part of the therapy in HIV patients, who in turn are prone to malaria in the tropics. This study investigated(More)
BACKGROUND Tarsal tunnel syndrome (TTS) is an entrapment neuropathy of the posterior tibial nerve or its branches within its fibro-osseous tunnel beneath the flexor retinaculum on the medial side of the ankle. It is a rare but important condition which is regularly under diagnosed leading to a range of symptoms affecting the plantar aspect of the foot.(More)
INTRODUCTION Ankle arthrodesis is primarily undertaken to control severe pain in the ankle joint. Immediate postoperative pain is usually treated using oral analgesics, intravenous opiates and regional anaesthesia. The outcomes of ankle fusion, including patient satisfaction studies, are well documented in the literature. However, the advantage of popliteal(More)
The absence of the hallucal sesamoid is a rare condition. Rarer still is the presentation of adolescent hallux valgus with the absence of both hallucal sesamoid. Seven cases of absence of the tibial sesamoid bone and 3 cases of absence of the fibular sesamoid bone have been found in the literature, and only a single case of bilateral absence of both(More)
Variable union rates in ankle arthrodesis using different surgical techniques have been reported in the biomedical literature. However, the advantages of a transfibular approach with sagittal splitting of the fibula have not been widely reported, even though the technique is well known and even described in surgical textbooks. We analyzed outcomes in our(More)
Osteogenesis imperfecta is a disorder of abnormality in collagen metabolism due to genetic defects, which causes fragility fracture in children. Fragility fracture of the neck of femur can be difficult to treat in adults. The difficulties increase exponentially in children. The challenge becomes more severe when there is an intramedullary rod in situ in the(More)
