We assessed the effect of foot deformity on the loading axis of lower limbs in 33 patients with genu varum (25 bilateral and eigth unilateral) caused by varying etiologies including achondroplasia, cerebral palsy, prior trauma, rickets, metaphyseal chondrodysplasia and primary osteoarthritis using single leg stance and both leg stance radiographs. Deviation(More)
A lot has been written on topic of relevance of case reports in the current scenario of Evidence Based Medicine, however one classic article by Jan P Vandenbroucke published in Journal of the Royal Society of Medicine stands out [1]. This article has encompassed all the positives of case reports and the relevance in the era of Evidence based medicine. It(More)
Background and purpose - Medial unicompartmental knee arthroplasty (UKA) is undertaken in patients with a passively correctable varus deformity. We investigated whether restoration of natural soft tissue tension would result in a lower limb alignment similar to that of the contralateral unaffected lower limb after mobile-bearing medial UKA. Patients and(More)
Purpose This study was to determine the efficacy of iliac crest reconstruction using bone cement in reducing pain and morbidity at the donor site in patients undergoing open wedge high tibial osteotomy (OWHTO) with tricortical iliac crest autologous graft. Materials and Methods Thirty-three patients who underwent iliac crest reconstruction using(More)
PURPOSE Simultaneous bilateral total knee arthroplasty (TKA) is associated with excessive blood loss and morbidity arising from postoperative reduction in hemoglobin (Hb). The purpose of this prospective randomized study was to determine if drains have any effect on blood loss, postoperative reduction in Hb levels and transfusion rates compared to no(More)
[Purpose] Device based therapy for low back pain (LBP) involves quantitative assessment of muscle strength, resistance and lumbar motion and tailoring the rehabilitation protocol based on this objective assessment. The purpose of this study was to determine the effectiveness of device based therapy for LBP. [Subjects and Methods] In this retrospective(More)
This study aimed to determine the accuracy and reliability of visual estimation of limb alignment and knee flexion by orthopaedic surgeons when compared to recordings done by computed navigation. Orthopaedic surgeons attending a national conference were asked to place a lower limb synthetic bone model in 6 positions of the knee in the coronal and sagittal(More)
