Repair of acute Achilles tendon rupture is a common procedure. There are many accepted surgical techniques; suture selection is largely due to surgeon preference. We present a case report of a granulomatous reaction to suture material following Achilles tendon repair. 'Fiberwire(®)' is an increasingly popular suture material for the repair of tendons and(More)
BACKGROUND Rupture of the biceps brachii insertion is relatively uncommon and may present late. Chronic ruptures pose a management dilemma, with higher reported complication rates when surgery is delayed, whilst conservatively treated injuries may do badly in active patients. MATERIALS AND METHODS Six consecutive male patients with delayed presentation of(More)
This article reviews the role of cavus in foot and ankle injury and summarizes the current surgical and nonsurgical treatments. Recognition of foot position is crucial in the management of ankle instability associated with cavovarus. Correcting foot alignment with orthoses or surgery improves the mechanics of the ankle, reducing the risk of instability and(More)
BACKGROUND The majority of foot and ankle surgery is carried out in a bloodless field achieved by the use of a pneumatic tourniquet. The risks of tourniquet use may be divided into those resulting from direct mechanical pressure from the cuff and those secondary to prolonged limb ischaemia. Current peri-operative guidelines advise the use of padding beneath(More)
The principal purpose of this paper was to identify whether femoral notch morphology was different in females without anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury from those with ACL injury. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) was used to assess the femoral notch type, notch width index and ‘α angle’ in female patients and measure these differences. This is a(More)
AIMS The mainstay of surgical correction of hallux valgus is first metatarsal osteotomy, either proximally or distally. We present a technique of combining a distal chevron osteotomy with a proximal opening wedge osteotomy, for the correction of moderate to severe hallux valgus. PATIENTS AND METHODS We reviewed 45 patients (49 feet) who had undergone(More)
