This review considers the surgical treatment of displaced fractures involving the knee in elderly, osteoporotic patients. The goals of treatment include pain control, early mobilisation, avoidance of complications and minimising the need for further surgery. Open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF) frequently results in loss of reduction, which(More)
BACKGROUND The purpose of this cohort study was to compare scapular notching rates, range of motion, and functional outcomes between patients who underwent a standard Grammont-style reverse shoulder arthroplasty (RSA) and patients who underwent bony increased-offset reverse shoulder arthroplasty (BIO-RSA) at a minimum of 2 years' follow-up. We hypothesized(More)
BACKGROUND Recent literature has shown that Propionibacterium acnes can be cultured from superficial and deep layers of the shoulder. Our aims were to assess the rate of P. acnes colonization in patients undergoing primary shoulder arthroplasty, to identify patient-related risk factors, and to evaluate the efficacy of our perioperative antisepsis protocol.(More)
BACKGROUND Radial head arthroplasty is commonly used to treat acute unreconstructible radial head fractures. The purpose of this study was to report on the clinical and radiographic outcomes at a minimum follow-up of five years after radial head arthroplasty with a modular metallic implant for the treatment of acute radial head fractures. METHODS The(More)
Manufacturers of pedometers recommend wearing a pedometer on the midline of the right thigh and this recommendation is used in research. However, there is conflicting evidence regarding the effect of pedometer position on accuracy. The purpose of this study was to systematically evaluate the effect of pedometer position on accuracy for 3 modes of gait. The(More)
Simultaneous bilateral hip fractures are exceedingly rare and usually occur following a seizure. To our knowledge, only 22 cases of such injuries have been reported in the literature during the past forty years and the majority of fractures are treated with open reduction and internal fixation. We present a case of a 66-year old man with Down syndrome and(More)
Hip dislocation is a well-described complication of total hip arthroplasty (THA) and dislocation rates are substantially higher following revision hip arthroplasty. Vascular complications following closed reduction of hip dislocations are exceedingly rare, but a high index of suspicion is essential for patients with underlying vascular abnormalities.(More)
For more than 60 years, total elbow arthroplasty (TEA) has been successfully used to treat a variety of elbow conditions. Although first designed to treat older patients with rheumatoid arthritis, the indications have expanded to include younger, higher-demand patients with a broad range of elbow pathology. Two groups of TEA currently exist. The first group(More)
Prolonged exposure to high-intensity noise has been associated with noise-induced hearing loss, hypertension, psychological stress, and irritability. The National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health considers levels above 85 decibels (dB) as harmful. In the study reported here, we sought to determine whether noise levels in orthopedic cast clinics(More)
