In corrective osteotomy, wound closure is undertaken with or without deflation of the tourniquet. Hypoxia from the tourniquet causes vasodilatation associated with reactionary haemorrhage and reduced haemoglobin concentration and possibly increased blood transfusion rate. Reactionary haemorrhage and related transfusion need can be reduced through(More)
OBJECTIVES The level of fibular osteotomy has a role in the incidence of peroneal nerve palsy (PNP). This study aims to compare the prevalence of PNP among patients who had fibular osteotomy at two different levels. MATERIALS AND METHODS Sixty-nine limbs in fifty-two patients had valgus osteotomy of the proximal tibia and fibular osteotomy at two(More)
Blount disease often requires operative treatment including osteotomy. This study evaluated the safety and outcome of the inverted-U osteotomy in Blount disease. We performed an anteroposterior inverted-U osteotomy without a jig or image intensifier in the treatment of a series of 31 children with the intention of achieving anterior–posterior stability at(More)
From October 2005 to August 2007, we operated on six patients who had femoral non-unions and performed interlocked intramedullary nailing without X-ray guidance or a targeting device. There were three fractures of the distal femur, two fractures of the mid-shaft and one of the proximal femur. Fatigue failure of a non-interlocked Kuntscher nail and one nail(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE The Stracathro approach to the hip is a modification of the lateral approach, which was popularized by Hays and McLauchlan. It has a high safety profile and a low rate of hip dislocation. However, the need for osteotomy increases blood loss, risk of intraoperative fracture, and postoperative heterotopic calcification. In sub-Saharan(More)
