INTRODUCTION A small proportion of simple elbow dislocations are grossly unstable and joint congruence is not maintained after reduction. In this rare situation operative treatment is indicated. We describe a new intra articular reconstruction that utilises a slip of triceps tendon to provide immediate stability to the elbow. METHODS We assessed 20(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Magnetic resonance (MR) and computed tomography (CT) images are degraded in the presence of metallic implants. We investigate whether SEMAC (Slice Encoding for Metal Artifact Correction) MR is advantageous for radiotherapy (RT) planning. METHODS Conventional and SEMAC MR protocols were compared (1.5T). A spine fixation device(More)
AIMS We wished to investigate the role of the cervical ligaments in maintaining atlantoaxial stability after fracture of the odontoid process. METHODS We dissected eight fresh-frozen cadaveric cervical spines to prepare the C1 and C2 vertebrae for biomechanical analysis. The C1 and C2 blocks were mounted and biomechanical analysis was performed to test(More)
