We reviewed 28 patients with brachial plexus lesions caused by shoulder dislocation. Contrary to most other reports, we found that the neurological lesions involved the infraclavicular and the supraclavicular brachial plexus. With supraclavicular lesions the involvement was always of the suprascapular nerve, and this always recovered spontaneously. Isolated(More)
Supracondylar fracture of the humerus is a common upper limb fracture in children for which treatment is controversial and often technically difficult, and complications are common. Cubitus varus is the most prevalent complication encountered in such fractures, with a mean incidence rate of 30%. A variety of methods for treating displaced fractures have(More)
Sciatic nerve palsy after total hip arthroplasty is a well-known complication, but delayed sciatic nerve palsy is rare. We report such a case with profound clinical manifestations and well-documented electrophysiologic changes. We found no helpful guidance to managing delayed palsy in the literature. We also are unaware of any previous cases reported in(More)
Weight has been shown to increase following total hip arthroplasty (THA). It is also reported that the preoperative weight does not correlate to the outcome of the surgery. Body mass index (BMI) is regarded as a better tool for analysis. However, only a few studies have analysed BMI, BMI change or its correlation to the outcome. We present a retrospective(More)
We compared the practice of four orthopaedic consultants as regards the use of MRI and arthroscopy to diagnose problems of the knee. In one year 324 arthroscopies and 66 MR scans were performed for this purpose. We found that MRI is a reliable and cheaper alternative to 'diagnostic arthroscopy'. We consider that patients with definite clinical signs merit(More)
The decision to manage an organized hemarthrosis conservatively or surgically is difficult and still controversial, especially in the postoperative patient compared with the trauma patient. We describe a cheap, effective, and readily available technique for the surgeon who elects for a surgical solution to this problem using a Karman catheter (Rocket(More)
