Ten tibial plateau fractures treated arthroscopically are reported. In eight cases, closed internal fixation was performed under arthroscopic control while in another two patients, arthroscopic washout alone was undertaken. Only one case required external splintage (a cast brace), the remainder being mobilized non-weight-bearing without plaster immediately… (More)
A case of proximal tibiofibular synostosis is presented along with a review of the literature. The variety of presenting complaints is discussed and the syndrome is compared with that of radio-ulnar synostosis. Possible modes of treatment are explained.
A retrospective study of 89 patients undergoing 98 arthroscopies of the knee in which a medial synovial plica was noted was undertaken. In 86 cases, the plica was deemed to be pathological and was resected arthroscopically. The symptoms and signs of these patients were noted preoperatively and the results of their operation noted in the outpatient… (More)
A retrospective study of 191 patients undergoing 203 Burgess type below knee amputations for end-stage peripheral vascular disease showed that the only clinical feature which associated significantly with wound healing was the lowest palpable pulse. The pulse level was noted preoperatively and was compared with the healing rates in the amputation stumps.… (More)
Ninety-five cases of medial epicondylitis are reported in 83 patients; 90% were related to work and only 10% to sport or leisure activities. Most recovered with conservative treatment. Operation was needed in 12%, which compared with under 4% of patients with lateral epicondylitis over the same period. The results of open release of the common flexor origin… (More)
Seventy tibial shaft fractures treated by intramedullary nailing using two different techniques were compared. The first group (35 cases) was treated with a Herzog intramedullary nail following hand reaming and minimal traction. The second group (35 cases) had a Grosse and Kempf or AO nail inserted following power reaming and skeletal traction. Fracture… (More)
The notes and radiographs of 281 adult tibial shaft fractures were reviewed. In 17 per cent there was an intact fibula. Delayed union rates were lower when the fibula remained intact, thus confirming that this is a good prognostic indicator. This fracture is caused by less severe trauma than fractures where both bones are broken. It is rare over the age of… (More)
A case of attrition rupture of the flexor pollicis longus (FPL) tendon caused by a scaphoid osteophyte in a patient with rheumatoid arthritis is reported. This lesion was found only after a thorough search of the floor of the carpal tunnel was performed.
Genu recurvatum due to an osseous abnormality is a condition that rarely requires surgical intervention. When necessary, the operative solution usually considered is an opening wedge osteotomy using bone graft and plate fixation. The donor site (usually the iliac crest) has a well reported morbidity with a further procedure being required to remove the… (More)
Seventy one Exeter bipolar hemiarthroplasties were reviewed after a mean follow up of 3.2 years (range 1–7 years). Patients with displaced subcapital fractures were selected for operation on the basis of good mobility before the fracture. The operation was well tolerated and the mortality at 1 month and 6 months was 3.7% and 6.5% respectively. Using a newly… (More)
