BACKGROUND Distal humerus fractures in elderly patients are difficult to treat as these fractures are often complicated by varying degrees of comminution intra-articular involvement and osteoporosis. We retrospectively reviewed the results of primary total elbow arthroplasty in the treatment of distal humerus fractures in seven patients followed for a(More)
Fixation of displaced patella fractures with tension band wiring is a commonly performed technique. Broken metal wires after such surgeries are not uncommon, however, intra-articular wire migration after failure of the tension band wires in the patella is uncommon and rarely described. In this study, we report a case of locking knee symptoms secondary to(More)
Septic arthritis following arthroscopic anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACL) is a rare complication and associated with severe morbidity. Its risk factors include (1) concomitant procedures during the reconstruction, (2) previous knee surgery, (3) allograft usage, (4) peri-operative wound contamination, and (5) presence of intra-articular foreign(More)
To evaluate whether pre-operative anthropometric data can predict the optimal diameter and length of hamstring tendon autograft for anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction. This was a cohort study that involved 169 patients who underwent single-bundle ACL reconstruction (single surgeon) with 4-stranded MM Gracilis and MM Semi-Tendinosus autografts.(More)
INTRODUCTION We retrospectively reviewed the results of total elbow arthroplasty in patients with rheumatoid arthritis of the elbow followed for a minimum of two years. METHODS Between September 1999 and March 2001, seven patients with rheumatoid arthritis of the elbow were treated with total elbow arthroplasty using the semi-constrained Coonrad-Morrey(More)
BACKGROUND We report a retrospective review of surface replacement hemiarthroplasty of the shoulder with biologic resurfacing of the glenoid, for relatively young patients suffering from advanced glenohumeral arthritis. It was hoped that the resurfacing fascia would prevent glenoid erosion for a period of time. METHODS This surgery was performed by two(More)
INTRODUCTION With an increasing number of women undergoing breast screening, an effective method of removing non-palpable lumps detected by mammography or sonography is by hookwire localisation excision biopsy (HWLB). The aim of this paper was to audit the practice of HWLB at the University Malaya Medical Centre. METHODS Patients with benign or suspicious(More)
BACKGROUND We report the functional impact and natural history of cutaneous hypoesthesia after plate internal fixation for mid shaft clavicle fractures with a horizontal skin incision from year 2009 to 2011. MATERIALS AND METHODS 38 patients had complete followup data with an average followup period of 23.2 months (range 8-43 months). The impact of(More)
BACKGROUND As the number of anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries and primary ACL reconstruction surgeries increase, the absolute number of re-ruptures or failures has also subsequently increased. In our study, we look at the causes of failure in the primary surgery and also report the clinical and functional outcomes in our series of patients(More)
Rice body formation is a nonspecific response to chronic synovial inflammation associated with tuberculous arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, juvenile rheumatoid arthritis, seronegative inflammatory arthritis, and even osteoarthritis. Such bodies were termed rice bodies because of their close resemblance to grains of polished white rice. We present a case(More)
