Due to an increasing lifespan, patients with osteogenesis imperfecta have a high incidence of hip osteoarthritis. The presence of recurrent fractures and deformities make primary and particularly revision total hip arthroplasty challenging. We present a series of patients with osteogenesis imperfecta undergoing total hip arthroplasty at a tertiary referral(More)
The sulfonamide compound, 4-methyl-N-(3-nitrophenyl)benzene sulfonamide (abbreviated as 4M3NPBS) has been synthesized and characterized by FTIR, FT-Raman NMR, single crystal X-ray diffraction and thermal analysis. Density functional (DFT) calculations have been carried out for the title compound by performing DFT level of theory using B3LYP/6-31G(d,p) basis(More)
Following the recall of modular neck hip stems in July 2012, research into femoral modularity will intensify over the next few years. This review aims to provide surgeons with an up-to-date summary of the clinically relevant evidence. The development of femoral modularity, and a classification system, is described. The theoretical rationale for modularity(More)
The bubble detector is demonstrated as one of the best suitable neutron detectors for neutron dose rate measurements in the presence of high-intense gamma fields. Immobilisation of a volatile liquid in a superheated state and achieving uniform distribution of tiny superheated droplets were a practical challenge. A compact and reusable bubble detector with(More)
Due to their improved wear rates, Metal-on-metal bearings have been increasingly used in the past decade by orthopaedic surgeons carrying out total hip arthroplasty. However there is increasing evidence that there are significant complications associated with such implants. One well documented complication is that of metallic debris leading to pseudotumour(More)
The sulfonamide compound, 4-methyl-N-(naphthalene-1-yl)benzene sulfonamide (abbreviated as 4MNBS) was synthesized from the reaction of 4-methyl benzene sulfonyl chloride with 1-naphthyl amine. The 4MNBS was characterized by FTIR, (1)H NMR, (13)C NMR, single crystal X-ray diffraction (XRD) and thermal analysis. By using the Density Functional Theory (DFT)(More)
Application of transmission and scattering gamma photon techniques for calibration of superheated emulsion detectors used for neutron dosimetry is described. The bubbles nucleated in the detector due to neutron exposure generate detectable changes in both attenuation and scattering properties of the medium, and the magnitude of change in properties depends(More)
A 75-year-old woman who had undergone hybrid metal-on-metal hip resurfacing 8 years earlier underwent revision arthroplasty because of hip, groin and lateral thigh pain. The main differential was aseptic loosening; however, serum cobalt and chromium levels were normal. Multiple imaging modalities revealed a periprosthetic, cystic soft tissue mass adjacent(More)
