BACKGROUND Although supramalleolar osteotomy with an opening medial wedge or a closing lateral wedge have been described for varus ankle deformity, these may be associated with failure due to persistence of the medial intra-articular defect, resulting in recurrent varus deformity. We report the results of a retrospective study assessing the outcome of an(More)
The immunogenicity of oil formulations that include saponin as an immunomodulator in cattle, swine and goats was evaluated. The specific immune response was examined by the detection of total antibodies (Ab) against each one of the viral strains in the vaccine by Liquid-Phase ELISA. The titres of Ab were related to the Expected Protection Percentage (EPP)(More)
BACKGROUND Flail toe is a bothersome complication following PIP resection arthroplasty, usually as a result of excessive bone resection. Patients complain of toe instability and catching on socks or shoes. We describe a PIP joint lengthening arthrodesis using structural bone graft for treatment of this condition. MATERIALS AND METHODS The results of 13(More)
BACKGROUND Several methods for fixation have been described for midfoot arthrodesis. Multi-joint arthrodesis at this level can be challenging because of bone loss and deformity, making it difficult to obtain a stable construct. We present the results of a novel hybrid plating system that incorporates locked and non-locked compression screws for multi-joint(More)
The short floppy toe, an iatrogenic condition in which the digit lacks structural stability, results from excessive resection of the distal aspect of the proximal phalanx during correction of claw or hammer toe deformity. The involved toe is much shorter than the adjacent digit, which it will often overlap. Little attention has been given to the cause and(More)
Bovine viral diarrhea (BVD) infection caused by bovine viral diarrhea virus (BVDV), a Pestivirus of the Flaviviridae family, is an important cause of morbidity, mortality and economical losses in cattle worldwide. E2 protein is the major glycoprotein of BVDV envelope and the main target for neutralising antibodies (NAbs). Different studies on protection(More)
