Range of motion (ROM) is an important outcome variable after total knee arthroplasty (TKA). This may be compounded by a pre-existing fixed flexion deformity (FFD). We therefore examined the long-term outcomes of patients with a flexion deformity undergoing TKA compared to those without a preoperative fixed flexion deformity. Participants who had undergone(More)
Malignant eccrine spiradenoma (MES) is a rare adnexal tumour derived from cutaneous sweat glands. We describe a case of MES arising on the tip of the right middle toe. The lesion had been managed as a non-specific chronic ulcer for 4 years. The lesion was treated by elective amputation. We wish to emphasise through this case report the importance of keeping(More)
PURPOSE To determine whether flexion contracture continues to improve up to 5 years after total knee arthroplasty (TKA). METHODS Records of 200 women and 123 men (mean age, 72 years) with osteoarthritis and preoperative flexion contracture were reviewed. 155 (48%) involved the left knee and 168 (52%) the right knee. Patients were assessed clinically(More)
Knee arthroplasty provides not only pain relief but also an improvement in function and range of movement. Limited joint mobility is a common complication of diabetes mellitus. We therefore examined functional outcome post total knee arthroplasty in a cohort of subjects with (n=367) and a cohort matched for age, sex, BMI and functional movement at baseline,(More)
