Surgery was performed by the senior author in a standardised fashion(More)
This study aims to demonstrate that postoperative immobilisation in a cast is unnecessary following suture repair of the patella tendon and retinacula protected by a cerlage wire. We present 11 patients mean age 42 years evaluated at a mean of 26 months (range 14-38 months). The mean Lysholm knee score at review was 97 (range 92-100). The mean Insall(More)

Published evidence has supported the use of femoral head resurfacing for patients with osteonecrosis of the femoral head. Between June 1999 and April 2001 we prospectively studied 15 femoral heads resurfaced in 12 patients with the Conserve Resurfacing Hemiarthroplasty. The male to female ratio was 8:4 and the mean age 38.7 years (range 26-60). The mean(More)
