STUDY DESIGN A retrospective study was conducted to study the post operative upper limb palsy after laminoplasty for cervical myelopathy. OBJECTIVE To identify a reliable and simple preoperative radiological parameter in predicting the risk of post operative upper limb palsy. BACKGROUND Post operative upper limb palsy is one of the causes of patient(More)
Two patients with Hoffa fracture of the knee, both suffering from poliomyelitis are reported. Both had unicondylar coronal plane fracture of the medial femoral condyle. The patients were treated with open reduction and screw fixation. Due to poor screw purchase, reoperation was necessary in one patient. The results were satisfactory in both patients.
Two solution-processable metallopolyynes of platinum functionalized with the electron-deficient 4H-cyclopenta[2,1-b:3,4-b']dithiophen-4-one spacer and their model molecular complexes were synthesized and developed for the applications of polymer solar cells. These metallated polymers possess extremely low bandgaps of 1.44-1.53 eV which extend toward the(More)
Bulk heterojunction solar cells have been extensively studied owing to their great potential for cost-effective photovoltaic devices. Although recent advances resulted in the fabrication of poly(3-hexylthiophene) (P3HT)/fullerene derivative based solar cells with efficiencies in the range 4.4-5.0%, theoretical calculations predict that the development of(More)
The synthesis, characterization, and photophysics of a series of solution-processable and strongly visible-light absorbing platinum(II) polyynes containing bithiazole-oligo(thienyl) rings were presented. Tuning the polymer solar cell efficiency, as well as optical and charge transport properties, in soluble, low-band gap PtII-based conjugated(More)
The synthesis, characterization and photophysics of some solution-processable intensely coloured polyplatinynes functionalized with the thienopyrazine-thiophene hybrid spacer and their model molecular complexes are described. These metallated polymers possess extremely low bandgaps of 1.47-1.50 eV, which extend towards the near-infrared (NIR) range of the(More)
Three Chinese patients suffered from severe lumbar spinal stenosis with debilitating symptoms due to a rare condition of ligamentum flavum cysts in the midline of the lumbar spine. This disease is distinct from synovial cyst of the facet joints or ganglion cysts, both intraoperatively and histopathologically. Magnetic Resonance imaging features of the(More)
Paediatric supracondylar fractures of the femur are not common. The treatment options depend on the age of child, the site of the fracture, the pattern of injury and the surgeon's preference. We report a case of an 11-year old boy who sustained a comminuted displaced supracondylar fracture of the femur and was treated with indirect reduction and internal(More)
