The diagnostic yield of blind percutaneous liver biopsy is improved when two or three specimens are taken during the procedure by redirecting the needle through a single entry-site, without exposing the patient to a greater risk of complications provided that standard precautions are taken. This study was designed to obtain further data on the safety of(More)
BACKGROUND We have introduced a one-stop clinic for the diagnosis and management of rotator cuff tears (RCTs). The aim of the study was to determine the effect of the one-stop clinic on the interval and delay in management for patients with suspected rotator cuff pathology. PATIENTS AND METHODS Seventy-four patients were reviewed retrospectively; 39 had(More)
INTRODUCTION Up to 40% of scaphoid fractures are missed at initial presentation as clinical examination and plain radiographs are poor at identifying scaphoid fractures immediately after the injury. Avoiding a delay in diagnosis is essential to prevent the risk of non-union and early wrist arthritis. We demonstrate the use of CT scanning for the early(More)
In this study, the use of computed tomography (CT) early in the management of suspected occult scaphoid fractures was evaluated. We retrospectively reviewed the notes and radiology of patients who had scaphoid CT scans over the preceding 3 years. Eighty-four patients that had CT scans within 14 days from injury were identified. Of the CT scans, 64% (n = 54)(More)
We report seven patients (eight wrists) with osteoarthrosis of the wrist associated with an exostosis arising from the dorsal aspect of the scaphoid. We believe that the exostosis is secondary to impingement of the scaphoid on the radial styloid process and is a consequence rather than a cause of osteoarthrosis. Conservative management is advised.
Distal radius fractures are the most common injury to present to orthopaedic fracture clinics. Displaced extra- or intra-articular fractures require reduction to allow a good outcome. Historically fractures were treated with manipulation and casting, with or without wire fixation. Modern plating techniques allow accurate reduction and internal fixation with(More)
In a study of the value of hepatic ultrasonography (US) and scintigraphy (SG) in detecting liver disease in developing countries 425 US scans and 304 SG scans of patients with focal or diffuse liver disease or normal livers were reviewed. The accuracy of both US and SG in distinguishing between normal and diseased livers was low (68% and 74%, respectively).(More)
