Superior dislocation of the patella is a rare diagnosis, which usually occurs after a trivial trauma. It usually requires manipulation with analgesics or may even need anaesthesia. We report a case of spontaneous reduction of the dislocation, which lead us to believe that this may be more common in the community than has been reported.
The aim of this study was to assess the usefulness of currently available indices for casting in distal radius fractures in children and to identify risk factors associated with displacement. A cohort of 14 patients with redisplacement was compared with a cohort of 41 patients with maintenance of reduction. A significant difference (<0.008) was observed in(More)
The image intensifier has become an essential part of the orthopaedic surgeon's armamentarium. Its increasing use, however, may expose medical staff and theatre personnel to high doses of radiation. The aim of this study was to assess the compliance of surgeons and staff with radiation protection protocols, especially the use of the thyroid shield and to(More)
We retrospectively reviewed the results of joint distraction and reconstruction in complex knee contractures in 6 patients with 9 knees. The circular Ilizarov fixator was used in all cases. Extensor mechanism alignment with frame in situ was performed in 4 cases and alignment of mechanical axis of the lower limb was done in 2. All patients had a mean total(More)
The availability and usage of portable image intensifiers has revolutionised routine orthopaedic practice. Extensive use of fluoroscopy however may result into significant radiation exposure to operating staff. An accumulated dose of 65 microSv per procedure over long exposure has been reported to increase the risk of thyroid cancer. The present prospective(More)
Arthrograms are commonly done in conjunction with an examination under anaesthesia (EUA), before any surgical intervention in Perthes disease. This usually is done as an independent day case procedure in the radiology department. The aim of this study is to confirm that the affected hip meets the prerequisites of a containment procedure. This study was(More)
The need for a screening programme for spinal stenosis in children with achondroplasia undergoing limb lengthening was identified in a tertiary limb reconstruction service. The aim of this study was to evaluate whether screening would identify the 'at risk' group. A total of 26 achondroplastic patients underwent our screening programme. Canal diameters were(More)
BACKGROUND The purpose of this study was to evaluate the clinical outcome of a two staged approach of subtalar arthrodesis followed by TAR for patients with ankle arthritis and AVN talus. METHODS Out of total 210 TARs performed at our institute; 7 patients underwent a two staged procedure between 2006 and 2010. All patients had over 3 years of follow up(More)
