PURPOSE To compare the outcomes of microendoscopic discectomy (MED) versus open discectomy for lumbar disc herniation. METHODS 80 men and 32 women aged 26 to 57 (mean, 37) years with a single-level disc herniation were randomised to undergo MED (n=55) or open (fenestration/laminotomy) discectomy (n=57). Patients were assessed pre- and post-operatively (at(More)
STUDY DESIGN Prospective cohort study. OBJECTIVE We propose a simple outcome-based classification for assessment of pedicle screw positions based on postoperative computed tomography scan. This bridges the gap between high rates of pedicle screw misplacement and minimal complications reported. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA The main deterrent for the use of(More)
BACKGROUND Drug-induced hepatotoxicity (DIH) is the most common adverse drug reaction leading to interruption of antituberculosis treatment. Worldwide, different reintroduction regimens have been advocated, but no consensus guidelines are available. Reintroduction of antituberculosis drugs in patients with DIH has never been studied systematically. We aimed(More)
BACKGROUND Approach for surgical treatment of thoracolumbar tuberculosis has been controversial. The aim of present study is to compare the clinical, radiological and functional outcome of anterior versus posterior debridement and spinal fixation for the surgical treatment of thoracic and thoracolumbar tuberculosis. MATERIALS AND METHODS 70 patients with(More)
In the absence of major deformity, the major goal of surgery in tuberculous spondylitis is to achieve adequate cord decompression and débridement of diseased tissue. We asked whether video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) could be undertaken in active tuberculosis of the spine with instrumentation and achieve good healing of the disease with fusion and(More)
An unusual case of aneurysmal bone cyst in the metacarpal of a five-year-old girl is described. The lesion was initially diagnosed and treated as a simple bone cyst. Subsequently the affected metacarpal was excised and replaced by an autogenous fibular graft, with good results. A discussion of the pathogenesis of the lesion is given, with a review of the(More)
INTRODUCTION With the advancement of instrumentation and minimally access techniques in the field of spine surgery, good surgical decompression and instrumentation can be done for tuberculous spondylitis with known advantage of MIS (minimally invasive surgery). The aim of this study was to assess the outcome of the minimally invasive techniques in the(More)
BACKGROUND The key to the safe and effective use of thoracic pedicle screws in the deformed spine is to thoroughly understand pedicle anatomy. There are a few studies related to pedicle anatomy in the Indian population and no pedicle morphometric studies in scoliosis patients. The present study aims to highlight the differential features of pedicle(More)
BACKGROUND CONTEXT There are no studies suggesting the management of asymptomatic, early pseudoarthrosis with advanced hip and spine deformities in patients with ankylosing spondylitis. Literature advocates the correction of the hip deformity first and that of spine later. PURPOSE To highlight the importance of asymptomatic, early pseudoarthrosis lesion(More)
Modified Phemister bone grafting consisting of the raising of an osteoperiosteal flap, bone petalling and a cancellous onlay graft for non-union of tibial shaft fractures was tried in 43 cases. Thirty-eight out of 43 fractures united after one bone grafting procedure, giving a success rate of 88%. The procedure can even be used in the presence of low-grade,(More)
