We have analysed the management and clinical outcome of a series of consecutive patients who had a total hip replacement and developed post-operative surgical site infection (SSI) with methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus. The incidence of this infection was 1% over a period of five years. We studied SSI in 15 patients (16 infections) with a mean age(More)
Though a number of series with long-term results have been published, there is still a paucity of literature on the role of patellar height after unicompartment knee arthroplasty (UKA). The present study was conducted with a hypothesis that patella baja may lead to a poor outcome at follow-up. A retrospective review of 134 knees was performed and patellar(More)
UNLABELLED Osteoarticular tuberculosis (TB) in the hip and other joints is increasing and patients in developing countries commonly present with advanced joint destruction. We asked whether TB is reactivated after THA in these patients. We retrospectively reviewed 12 patients with an average age of 45 years who had advanced stages of hip destruction(More)
PURPOSE Tubercular infection has not been described, to our knowledge, in the literature after anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction, and, hence, the purpose of our case series was to describe our experience, evaluate the clinical and laboratory findings, and assess the treatment outcome. METHODS We performed a retrospective analysis of 1,152(More)
Ipsilateral fractures in the neck and trochanteric region of the femur are very rare and seen in elderly osteoporotic patients. We present a case of a young man who presented with ipsilateral fracture of the femoral neck and a reverse oblique fracture in the trochanteric region following a motor vehicle accident. A possible mechanism, diagnostic challenge,(More)
Tuberculosis of a prosthetic knee joint is rare. Early diagnosis would improve the outcome, but this is usually not achieved. We report the case of a 73-year-old woman who presented with a painful and swollen knee joint, 14 years after total knee arthroplasty. Radiographs and haematological investigations were inconclusive. Synovial tissue and pus obtained(More)
We share the literature and management of an adult with moderate hemophilia a presented with a calcaneal pseudotumor and non healing ulcer by radiation therapy, factor VIII and cryoprecipitate supplement. Numerous literatures so far have quoted the satisfactory role of radiotherapy in hemophilic pseudotumor. We found it to be of great help as our case(More)
