Palmaris longus muscle, although of little functional use to the human upper limb, assumes great importance when used as a donor tendon for transfer or transplant. The variability in the prevalence of palmaris longus agenesis among various ethnic groups has been established, and the surgeon's awareness of the prevalence in a population or ethnic group is(More)
Primary tumours and tumorous lesions of the clavicle are very rare, and little literature is available regarding their characteristics and outcome. We studied the clinical, radiological, and histopathological characteristics, and outcome of management of patients with primary tumours of the clavicle presenting to us from 1996–2005. Twelve cases of primary(More)
BACKGROUND Proximal humerus, although a common site for primary bone sarcomas, finds scant mention in literature as far as options and outcome of reconstruction in the skeletally immature skeleton are concerned. Reconstruction after resection of proximal humeral sarcomas in the immature skeleton poses specific challenges to the surgeon, and there has been a(More)
STUDY DESIGN We present, to the best of our knowledge, the first reported case of craniovertebral junction tuberculosis with complete quadriplegia in an infant. OBJECTIVE To describe report of an unusual case and discuss the difficulties and peculiarities of diagnosis, management, and follow-up of craniovertebral tuberculosis in an infant. SUMMARY OF(More)
BACKGROUND The management of Ewing's sarcoma family of tumors (ESFT, Ewing's sarcoma/primitive neuroectodermal tumor) has been established as a multimodality treatment. Advances in imaging and diagnostics, chemotherapy, surgical techniques, radiotherapy and prosthetic technology have resulted in drastic changes in the outcome of this disease, with most of(More)
BACKGROUND While limb salvage surgery has long been established as the standard of care for osteosarcoma, large studies from Indian centers are few. Given the diverse socio economic milieu of our patients, it becomes significant to determine the feasibility and outcome of management of osteosarcoma in our population. We analyzed the early outcome of limb(More)
PURPOSE To report the results of surgical management for late-presenting displaced supracondylar fractures of the humerus in children. METHODS Between February 2002 and June 2003, 40 children (mean age, 7 years) with late presentation (range, 2-12 days) of displaced supracondylar humeral fractures were prospectively recruited. Gentle closed manipulation(More)
Osteosarcoma is the most common malignant primary neoplasm of bone. For an optimal oncological outcome, surgical removal of tumor is an essential component of its multidisciplinary treatment. Limb salvage surgery has long been established as the standard of care for osteosarcoma. While limb-salvaging techniques have acceptable rates of disease control,(More)
BACKGROUND Giant cell tumors (GCTs) of bone are aggressive benign tumors. Wide resection is reserved for a small subset of patients with biologically more aggressive, recurrent and extensive tumors. As the patients affected with GCT are young or middle-aged adults with a normal life expectancy, arthrodesis is an attractive option for reconstruction in these(More)
Dear Editor, Multifocal skeletal tuberculosis is rare, and accounts for 10% of all cases of osteoarticular tuberculosis.1 We report one such case for its unusual clinicoradiological picture, which was more compatible with a benign bone tumour rather that an infectious disease. A 22-year-old male presented with pain in the left ankle for about 1 month, with(More)
