Giant cell tumours of tendon sheath of hand present a surgical dilemma due to their high incidence of local recurrence. We present a case series of 46 patients with 47 histologically confirmed giant cell tumours of tendon sheath over a ten-year period from 1998 to 2008. The mean follow-up was 47 months (range 25-124 months). We identified tumours with bony(More)
Local recurrence along the biopsy track is a known complication of percutaneous needle biopsy of malignant musculoskeletal tumours. In order to completely excise the track with the tumour its identification is essential, but this becomes increasingly difficult over time. In an initial prospective study, 22 of 45 patients (48.8%) identified over a(More)
STUDY DESIGN A prospective study of 2 different fusion techniques for the treatment of single-level degenerative spondylolisthesis. OBJECTIVE To determine whether the addition of an intervertebral cage improves the clinical outcome and fusion rate of patients undergoing posterior lumbar interbody fusion (PLIF) after decompression for degenerative(More)
Avulsion fractures of the anterior superior iliac spine are rare. This injury is usually seen in adolescents, as an avulsion fracture of the apophyses, a result of sudden vigorous contraction or repetitive contraction of the sartorius and tensor fasciae latae muscles. Treatment for this injury is usually conservative; however, surgical management has been(More)
We describe 22 cases of bizarre parosteal osteochondromatous proliferation, or Nora's lesion. These are surface-based osteocartilaginous lesions typically affecting the hands and feet. All patients were identified from the records of a regional bone tumour unit and were treated between 1985 and 2009. Nine lesions involved the metacarpals, seven the(More)
Leiomyomas of the deep soft tissue in the extremities of children are very rare. These benign soft tissue tumors occur more frequently in adults between the fourth and sixth decades of age. Women are more commonly affected than men, with the uterus the most common location. We present a rare case of deep soft tissue leiomyoma in the foot of a 5-year-old(More)
We present a consecutive series of five patients with angioleiomyoma, a rare benign soft tissue tumor around the knee. Between 2005 and 2010, five patients with histopathologically confirmed diagnosis of angioleiomyoma of the knee underwent surgical excision. All five patients were Afro-caribbean in origin. The presenting feature was burning medial knee(More)
Avulsion fractures of the tibial tuberosity are typically sustained by adolescent males during sporting activities. Tibial tuberosity avulsions with simultaneous proximal tibial epiphyseal fractures are rare injuries. We present an unusual case of Ogden type IIIA avulsion fracture of tibial tuberosity with a Salter Harris type IV posterior fracture of(More)
Ewing's sarcoma is a malignant round cell tumour of bone commonly affecting children and young adults. Intra-neural Ewings is very rare form of extraosseous Ewing's sarcoma (EES), posing diagnostic and therapeutic challenges. We report two cases of intra-neural EES presenting with elbow pain and swelling, mimicking an upper limb peripheral nerve sheath(More)
Chondrosarcoma is most frequently present in the pelvis and long bones and rarely seen in the bones of the hand. Traditionally the treatment of choice for involvment of the hand is ray amputation, however this causes significant functional deficit if there is thumb involvement. There are limited cases in literature of resection of thumb chondrosarcoma with(More)
