Finite element (FE) methods are widely used in electrical impedance tomography (EIT) to enable rapid image reconstruction of different tissues based on their electrical conductivity. For EIT of brain function, anatomically-accurate (head-shaped) FE meshes have been shown to improve the quality of the reconstructed images. Unfortunately, given the lack of a… (More)
Sciatic nerve palsy has been well documented and reported, following primary and revision hip replacement. It can also occur following dislocation of hip replacement. The incidence of sciatic nerve palsy in dislocated hip replacement is <0.1%. However, new onset sciatic nerve palsy following a closed reduction of dislocated hip replacement is even rarer. We… (More)
Unstable 4 part pertrochanteric fractures without lateral cortical support presents considerable technical problem in treatment with high risk of failure with any implant. Anatomical or slight valgus reduction and subchondral central position of the lag screw (TAD <25 mm) reduces the chance of screw cut out and other complications.
Primary repair of pectoralis major tendon with bony tunnels and anchor sutures in the proximal humerus creates a potential weakness and stress riser leading to increased risk of periprosthetic fracture and nerve damage at the site of weakness with subsequent injury, if not allowed to heal satisfactorily with adequate period of rest.
Reconstruction of images in Electrical Impedance Tomography (EIT) of brain function in the adult head benefits from the use of accurate numerical models, which may utilize meshes created by the Finite Element Method (FEM). Previously, these have been produced by manual segmentation and parametric representation of surfaces which were later meshed, but this… (More)
