Legg-Calve-Perthes disease is characterized by osteonecrosis of the femoral head during childhood. Outcomes of total hip arthroplasty (THA) for these patients are less satisfactory than for those with primary osteoarthritis, often complicated by young patient age, multi-planar deformities and previous childhood surgery. To our knowledge no one has reported(More)
Pre-operative digital templating allows the surgeon to foresee any anatomical anomalies which may lead to intra-operative problems, and anticipate appropriate instruments and implants required during surgery. Although its role is well-established in successful elective total hip arthroplasty, little work has been done on its use in hip hemiarthroplasty in(More)
OBJECTIVES Functional outcomes following distal radius fractures are directly influenced by the choice of outcome assessment instruments used. Our objective was to compare scoring systems in measuring patient functional outcomes and to determine which scoring system compared most favorably with the widely used Disabilities of the Arm, Shoulder, and Hand(More)
AIMS We aimed to identify the pattern of nerve injury associated with paediatric supracondylar fractures of the humerus. PATIENTS AND METHODS Over a 17 year period, between 1996 and 2012, 166 children were referred to our specialist peripheral nerve injury unit. From examination of the medical records and radiographs were recorded the nature of the(More)
We undertook a systematic review of 11 randomised controlled trials comparing patient outcomes in total knee arthroplasty in those who had undergone pre-operative physiotherapy-based interventions against control groups. Results show that there is little evidence that pre-operative physiotherapy brings about significant improvements in patient outcome(More)
