A distal locking device for the solid intramedullary tibial nails has been tried on bone models. This device allows simple and accurate insertion of distal locking screws with minimum radiation exposure to the patient and the surgeons. It also reduces the operation time. The aim of this experiment was to test the accuracy of the new aiming device and to(More)
We describe a patient who was found to have two sesamoid bones at the interphalangeal joint of the right great toe after radiographs for dislocation of the joint. Recognition of the sesamoids required careful scrutiny of the films. Interphalangeal sesamoids may cause painful callosities plantar to the joint or may become incarcerated in a dislocated joint.(More)
Where length discrepancy occurs in the skeletally mature lower leg, there may be a benefit in using the technique of tibial shortening. Existing techniques have not been widely adopted and are associated with a high incidence of soft tissue complications. We describe a technique of progressive shortening, which we believe is a safe method, having adapted(More)
