Impaction bone grafting for the reconstitution of bone stock in revision hip surgery has been used for nearly 30 years. Between 1995 and 2001 we used this technique in acetabular reconstruction, in combination with a cemented component, in 304 hips in 292 patients revised for aseptic loosening. The only additional supports used were stainless steel meshes(More)
INTRODUCTION The aim of this systematic review is to describe the use of cadavers in postgraduate surgical training, to determine the effect of cadaveric training sessions on surgical trainees' technical skills performance and to determine how trainees perceive the use of cadaveric workshops as a training tool. METHODS An electronic literature search was(More)
INTRODUCTION In orthopaedic surgery, small bicortical circular bone defects are often produced as a result of internal fixation of fractures. The aim of this study was to determine the amount of torsional strength reduction in animal bone with a bicortical bone defect and how much residual strength remains if the bicortical bone defect was occluded.

BACKGROUND Idiopathic tibia vara (Blount disease) is an acquired form of tibial deformity found mainly in children who are Afro-Caribbean and obese. It is uncommon. Several methods have been described for the surgical treatment of this condition, which can be categorized as either acute or gradual correction. The aim of this study is to review the evidence(More)
Brachymetatarsia of the first metatarsal is an uncommon condition, but one that is amenable to treatment by lengthening via distraction osteogenesis, a process that employs 2 groups of pins of an appropriate external fixator inserted in the metatarsal to apply gradual distraction across an intervening osteotomy. We present the case of a female, aged 13(More)
The expression of receptors for complement and the Fc region of immunoglobulin by alveolar macrophages (AM) constitutes a valuable aid to effector function of these cells. However, during HIV infection such expression may also act to increase binding of immune complexes, thus facilitating viral infection of these cells. This study was designed to determine(More)

Aseptic loosening of the acetabular component continues to be the most common indication for revision of total hip replacements in younger patients. Early in the evolution of the cemented hip, arthroplasty surgeons switched from removal to retention of the acetabular subchondral bone plate, theorizing that unfavourable mechanical forces were the cause of(More)
We present the case of an apparently healthy 22-year-old female who presented with atraumatic stress fractures of both fibulae. Further investigation demonstrated that she had osteopoenia secondary to occult coeliac disease. The fractures were successfully treated non-operatively. The awareness of the prevalence of occult coeliac disease is increasing due(More)
