The use of tranexamic acid (TA) in total knee arthroplasty is well documented. However, there is limited evidence to suggest the use of TA in simultaneous bilateral computer assisted total knee arthroplasty (CATKA). We, therefore, studied the effect of TA, in simultaneous bilateral computer assisted total knee arthroplasty, in terms of blood transfusion,(More)
Most of the existing total knee arthroplasty (TKA) implants are designed to suit the knee anatomy of the Western population. Studies have shown that there are striking variations in knee morphology between the Asian and Western population. We conducted a case-control study to investigate the anthropometry of the Indian arthritic knees using three(More)
BACKGROUND Plantar fasciitis is one of the commonest, and most frustrating, foot ailments seen in a regular orthopaedic clinic. There are a number of modalities available to treat this condition, of which corticosteroid injection is, perhaps, the most popular. However, recent years have seen an increased interest in the use of platelet-rich plasma (PRP)(More)
Fractures of the distal radius in elderly patients are often associated with metaphyseal defects that can lead to collapse, malunion and therefore decreased function. An alternative approach to simple reduction is to fill the defects with materials that can provide structural support. We used synthetic hydroxyapatite (HA) in unstable fractures of the distal(More)
Of the various red cell parameters used for distinguishing iron deficiency anaemia (IDA) from beta-thalassaemia trait BTT, red cell distribution width (RDW), which is an objective measure of the degree of anisocytosis, was examined by us for its discriminating value. RDW was measured in 55 patients of IDA and 56 patients of BTT at presentation with the help(More)
Ethnic cultural demands of the patient have encouraged surgeons to use high-flexion designs. It has been speculated that these high-flexion designs may produce higher incidence of patellofemoral complications over conventional designs. We wish to report 5- to 7-year follow-up of this design with special emphasis on patellofemoral outcomes. We performed a(More)
Ankle sprains are by far the commonest ankle injuries. The traditional clinical approach, to any ankle injury, is a clinical examination followed by radiological examination. We have developed a simple clinical test to rule out fractures in ankle injuries and thereby eliminating the necessity for radiological examination. Our test is simple, reproducible,(More)
