Medial clavicle fractures are uncommon, accounting for approximately 5 percent of all clavicle fractures. Vascular injuries are uncommon but are recognised as either an immediate complication due to transection of the vessel by the displaced fracture, or as a late complication, secondary to compression from abundant callus formation. We present an unusual(More)
Serum bactericidal activity (SBA) and ELISA antibody levels elicited by two efficacious serogroup B meningococcal vaccines were measured in a controlled trial involving 408 15- to 20-year-olds. Subjects were given two doses at a 6-week interval of a serogroup B or control vaccine. Response was defined as > or = 4-fold rise in antibody level. After two doses(More)
Arthroscopic examination and treatment is an ever-increasing part of modern orthopaedic practice in this age of minimally invasive surgery. Arthroscopic procedures have been widespread in surgery of the knee and the shoulder for many years; however, the hip until relatively recently, has been largely neglected. Even now hip arthroscopy is not widely(More)
Sensitized patients with lymphocytotoxic immunoglobulin (Ig)G anti-human leukocyte antigen (HLA) antibodies have an increased risk of rejection and poorer graft survival. Little is known, however, about the correlation between IgG antibody subclass and clinical outcomes. We identified 20 sensitized renal transplant recipients (panel reactive antibody >15%),(More)
A case is discussed of the use of medical images from the internet to support claims of injury. There were several inconsistencies in both history and examination even prior to the presentation of the specimen radiograph from the internet. Clinicians are advised to be vigilant, to question histories that do not match with examination findings, to ensure(More)
The debate whether to use cemented or uncemented components in primary total hip replacement (THR) has not yet been considered with reference to the cost implications to the National Health Service. We obtained the number of cemented and uncemented components implanted in 2009 from the National Joint Registry for England and Wales. The cost of each(More)
Left ventricular volume reduction surgery (LVVR) for end-stage dilated cardiomyopathy is a surgical option used selectively but with unclear long-term results. Increasing numbers of reports are appearing in the literature. These should be pooled into an international registry through collaborative efforts that allow for more effective analysis. Furthermore,(More)
