Osteoarticular tuberculosis is a paucibacillary disease hence bacteriological diagnosis is possible in 10-30% of the cases. The present study is undertaken to correlate clinico-radiological,(More)
Conjoint bicondylar Hoffa fracture is an extremely rare injury. Only one case has been reported previously in the pediatric age group. We describe this injury in a 17-year-old male who presented following a fall with direct impact on his semiflexed right knee. Plain radiographs were inadequate to define the exact pattern of injury. Computed tomographic (CT)(More)

A diagnosis of primary intertrochanteric nonunion is made when at least 15 weeks after the fracture there is radiological evidence of a fracture line, with either no callus (atrophic)(More)
Posterior dislocations of the hip are known to be associated with fractures of the femoral head, neck, shaft, or posterior acetabular wall. However, its association with ipsilateral intertrochanteric fracture has only been anecdotally described in the English literature. We report two such cases managed by open reduction (OR) of the hip and internal(More)
