INTRODUCTION The use of total-body computed tomography (CT) scanning in the evaluation of multiply injured patients is increasing, and their liberal use has stirred debate as to the added benefit relative to the risk of radiation exposure and inappropriate use of limited healthcare resources. Findings unrelated to the clinician's reasons for requesting the(More)
There is no published literature to support mid to long term results of hip resurfacing (HR) arthroplasty in patients over the age of 70 years. The purpose of our study was to evaluate the function HR in this age group (70 or older at the time of surgery) at medium to long term follow-up. Between July 1997 and November 2002, the Oswestry Outcome Centre(More)
Despite the increasing interest and subsequent published literature on hip resurfacing arthroplasty, little is known about the prevalence of its complications and in particular the less common modes of failure. The aim of this study was to identify the prevalence of failure of hip resurfacing arthroplasty and to analyse the reasons for it. From a(More)
BACKGROUND Conversion of a failed femoral resurfacing component is reportedly a straightforward procedure; however, little has been published regarding the functional results following revision. Our primary aim was to compare the functional results for a group of patients who had had isolated femoral component revision after a failed hip resurfacing with(More)
The purpose of this study was to compare functional outcome and survival of isolated acetabular, isolated femoral and both component revision after failure of primary Birmingham Hip Resurfacing. The Oswestry Outcome Centre prospectively collected data on 5000 hip resurfacing between 1997 and 2002. Of these, 182 hips were revised: 8% had revision of the(More)
This prospective study examines patient non-compliance (NC) for an oral factor Xa inhibitor (Rivaroxaban) when used as venous thromboembolic (VTE) prophylaxis following lower limb arthroplasty. A total of 3145 patients underwent surgery from May 2010 to December 2011. At 6 weeks patients completed an anonymous self-administered questionnaire.(More)
Addenbrooke's Hospital, the Major Trauma Centre for the East of England Trauma Network, received 1070 major trauma patients between 1st January and 31st December 2014. In order to improve care, an audit was performed of 59 patients meeting our own selection criteria for orthopaedic polytrauma between 1st January 2013 and 31st December 2013. The Cambridge(More)
A 44-year-old woman presented following minor trauma to her right knee. While dancing she externally rotated around a planted foot and felt sudden pain in her right knee. She presented with her knee locked in extension with a "dorsal fin" appearance of the soft tissues tented over the patella. This was diagnosed as a rare case of an intraarticular patella(More)
Introduction Paediatric trauma is a significant burden to healthcare worldwide and accounts for a large proportion of deaths in the UK. Methods This retrospective study examined the epidemiological data from a major trauma centre in the UK between January 2012 and December 2014, reviewing all cases of moderate to severe trauma in children. Patients were(More)
Pelvic fractures in pregnancy are rare, resulting in a paucity of evidence-based management. We describe a case of open book pelvic injury in a 32-year-old woman in her third trimester of pregnancy. She was successfully managed with a supra-acetabular external fixator, which allowed the safe delivery of a healthy baby boy at 34 weeks, via caesarean section.(More)
