BACKGROUND Rotational malalignment of the components in total knee arthroplasty (TKA) can be a factor in poor outcomes but has yet to be defined. This study compares the rotational alignment of components in a cohort of 56 patients with unexplained pain following total knee arthroplasty with a matched control cohort of 56 patients with cemented Nex Gen(More)
We report a case of division of the deep peroneal nerve resulting from a drill used in the insertion of an oblique proximal locking screw in an AIM tibial intramedullary nail (DePuy). Operative findings and anatomical study indicate there is a risk of damage to the peroneal nerve associated with the oblique proximal locking screws used in this nail design.(More)
AIMS In breast-conserving surgery, the width of free margin around a tumour to ensure adequate excision is controversial. The aim of this study was first to evaluate the frequency of residual disease in wider excision specimens in patients who undergo further surgery because of close margins of < 5 mm. Secondly, the ability of demographic and tumour-related(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the results of treatment in children with open tibial fractures. DESIGN Retrospective review. SUBJECTS Eighty three children under 13 years of age treated for an open tibial fracture between 1989 and 1999. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES Patient demographics, mechanism of injury, fracture classification, treatment method, clinical outcome(More)
The use of copper in antifouling paints has increased in the UK in the last 20 years as TBT and several other organic biocides have been phased out. To assess the probable impact of copper on estuarine systems a survey was undertaken to measure the different fractions of copper present in the water column at current usage. The different fractions measured(More)
In a multicentre trial of adjuvant chemotherapy in gastric adenocarcinoma, a number of patients developed chronic haemolysis and renal failure following long-term treatment with 5-fluorouracil and mitomycin-C. This was exacerbated by blood transfusion, leading to an acute intravascular haemolytic state accompanied by rapid decline in renal function. One(More)
13 175 patients with gastric carcinomas have been staged with reference to the TNM staging system. This has confirmed the poor overall prognosis (5.5 per cent and 3.8 per cent age-adjusted survival rates at 5 and 10 years respectively). However, it has demonstrated the significant survival associated with the treatment of Stage I disease (70.0 per cent at 5(More)
In "early" gastric cancer the depth of invasion by the primary tumour is confined to the submucosa of the stomach. Out of 13228 cases of gastric cancer notified to the Birmingham Cancer Registry during 1960-9, 90 (0 . 7%) were identifed as early gastric cancer. The crude five-year survival rate of these 90 patients was 57 . 8% (age-adjusted rate 70 . 4%)(More)
BACKGROUND Preoperative pain and functional status are strong determinants of postsurgical success in total knee arthroplasty. Patients suffering chronic pain from other coexistent musculoskeletal problems may respond differently postoperatively, with potentially poorer outcomes after surgery. The aim of the study was to determine the influence of low back(More)
