The following study is a review of 3 different treatment methods for treating comminuted distal periprosthetic femur fractures in 23 patients over the age of 70 (average age 80, range 70-90). Reconstruction techniques included 7 allograft prosthesis composite (APC), 9 revision systems (RSA), and 7 distal femur endoprosthesis (DFR). Operative time and blood(More)
Corrective surgery for kyphotic deformities of the spine in ankylosing spondylitis is a major surgery. for rare indications. The authors report 31 lumbar osteotomies. The goal is to correct the deformity through a posterior limited approach and to minimise the neurological risks. The modifications developed by the authors for monosegmental closing wedge(More)
We investigated the clinical outcome of internal fixation for pathological fracture of the femur after primary excision of a soft-tissue sarcoma that had been treated with adjuvant radiotherapy. A review of our database identified 22 radiation-induced fractures of the femur in 22 patients (seven men, 15 women). We noted the mechanism of injury, fracture(More)
OBJECTIVE A potential issue with the Walking Impairment Questionnaire (WIQ) is that it is relatively complex. We estimated the number of errors made by patients when self-completing the WIQ, and assessed the benefit of correcting missing, duplicate or paradoxical (i.e., reported lower difficulty for a higher-intensity task) answers. DESIGN Prospective(More)

The treatment of benign and malignant primary bone tumors has progressed over time from relatively simple practice to complex resection and reconstruction techniques. Recently, computer-assisted orthopaedic surgery (CAOS) has been used to assist surgeons to enhance surgical precision in order to achieve these goals. Initially, software developed for(More)
AIMS Intercalary allografts following resection of a primary diaphyseal tumour have high rates of complications and failures. At our institution intercalary allografts are augmented with intramedullary cement and fixed using compression plating. Our aim was to evaluate their long-term outcomes. PATIENTS AND METHODS A total of 46 patients underwent(More)
Few biomechanical studies exist on femoral cementless press-fit stems for revision total knee replacement (TKR) surgeries. The aim of this study was to compare the mechanical quality of the femur-stem interface for a series of commercially available press-fit stems, because this interface may be a 'weak link' which could fail earlier than the femur-TKR bond(More)
