Subtrochanteric fractures are fraught with anatomical, biological and biomechanical challenges which account for an increased incidence of nonunion and malunion. We retrospectively assessed the results achieved in 40 patients with a mean age of 36 years who were treated with biological plating using a Dynamic Condylar Screw for comminuted subtrochanteric(More)

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)

METHODS We performed a retrospective analysis of 1,152(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)
