Thirty-two patients (11 male, 21 female) with a mean age of 64 years were prospectively studied after undergoing total hip replacement after failed treatment of intertrochanteric fractures. One patient had bilateral surgery. The mean time from primary surgery to the salvage arthroplasty was 15 months (range, 4 to 32 months). The mean follow-up period was 57(More)
Plasma malondialdehyde (MDA) (an indicator of lipid peroxidation) was determined in random samples of workers (age range 25-60 years) exposed to silica dust (n = 31, mean exposure duration 21.3 +/- 8.3 years) or asbestos dust (n = 59, mean exposure duration 15.6 +/- 4.5 years) and in 52 age-matched healthy male controls. MDA levels of both exposed groups(More)
Different methods of internal fixation are used in the treatment of femoral shaft fractures. Results of locked plate fixation in adults have been encouraging. A locking plate construct with a standard broad Dynamic Compression Plate (DCP) and 4.5 mm nuts was used in the treatment of femoral shaft fractures in 15 skeletally immature patients. There were 12(More)
Hemiarthroplasty has been successfully used for treatment of femoral neck fractures in the elderly. With increased demand being placed on the prostheses, some of them failed and had to be converted to total hip replacement. The aim of this study is to evaluate the result of conversion arthroplasty in Egyptian population. We report 47 patients who had(More)
In acetabular fractures, the correct choice of the surgical approach is mandatory to achieve accurate reduction and to avoid complications. Anterior approaches include the ilio-inguinal, the Stoppa, the ilio-femoral and the para-rectal exposures. The first two are the most commonly used approaches nowadays. The aim of this study was to compare these two(More)
Different methods of internal fixation are used to treat unstable forearm fractures in children. Results of single bone fixation are comparable to those with both bone fixations with a lesser morbidity. Eighteen skeletally immature patients with unstable forearm fractures were treated by ulnar plating. There were 13 boys (72.3%) and five girls. The mean age(More)
The aim of the current study was to evaluate the role of γ-amino butyric acid (GABA) in insulin disturbance and hyperglycemia associated with brain oxidative damage in streptozotocin-treated rats. Streptozotocin (STZ) was administered to male albino rats as a single intraperitoneal dose (60 mg/kg body weight). GABA (200 mg/Kg body weight/day) was(More)
T-shaped acetabular fractures are challenging injuries. The goal of surgical treatment is to achieve a stable and a concentric reduction of the femoral head under the anatomically reduced weight-bearing dome. There is an ongoing debate about the ideal approach and fixation method for T-shaped fractures. In this study, a group of 34 patients with T-shaped(More)
