BACKGROUND This study compares two diaphyseal osteotomies (scarf and Ludloff) which correct moderate to severe metatarsus primus varus. This is a single surgeon, prospective cohort study with clinical and radiological follow~up at 12 months. MATERIALS AND METHODS There were 57 patients in each group. Both groups were similar in terms of age, gender and(More)
We undertook a comparison evaluation of outcomes after 2 different high-volume image-guided injection (HVIGI) procedures performed under direct ultrasound guidance in patients with chronic noninsertional Achilles tendinopathy. In group A, the HVIGI involved high-volume (10 mL of 1% lidocaine combined with 40 mL of saline) and no dry needling. In group B,(More)
Most of the literature on surgical site infections following the surgical treatment of fractures of the ankle is based on small series of patients, focusing on diabetics or the elderly. None have described post-operative functional scores in those patients who develop an infection. We performed an age- and gender-matched case-control study to identify(More)
BACKGROUND Metatarsophalangeal joint arthroplasty is an accepted treatment for hallux rigidus. There are few reports of the long-term results of this procedure. METHODS A series of 15 consecutive bio-action first metatarsophalangeal total joint replacements were retrospectively reviewed after a minimum follow-up of 5 years. The patients were assessed(More)
AIMS The objective of this double-blind randomised controlled trial was to assess whether ultrasound guidance improved the efficacy of corticosteroid injections for Morton's neuroma (MN). PATIENTS AND METHODS In all, 50 feet (40 patients) were recruited for this study but five feet were excluded due to the patients declining further participation. The(More)
BACKGROUND The purpose of this study was to investigate the influence of joint configuration and preparation on first metatarsophalangeal (MTPJ) union rates. METHODS We performed a retrospective analysis of first MTPJ arthrodeses undertaken in our institution. Clinical notes, radiographs and postal questionnaires were used to determine outcome. RESULTS(More)
BACKGROUND The treatment of acute Achilles tendon ruptures is continually being debated. The success of non-surgical regimes is now evident yet there remains a high rate of surgery in the United States of America and Scandinavia. Recent studies have investigated functional outcome rather than complication rates as primary outcome but the current data are(More)
