Eight patients with aneurysmal bone cysts (ABC) were treated with selective embolization as an adjunct to curettage and bone graft in seven cases and as the definitive procedure in the remaining case. The age range was 5-23 years. Symptoms had been present for an average duration of 6 months. The lesions were located in the femur (three), the shoulder(More)
Cubitus varus is the most common complication of supracondylar fracture of the humerus in children. Although function of the elbow is not greatly impaired, the deformity is unsightly. It usually results from malunion, since growth disturbance of the humerus after this fracture is uncommon. The normal carrying angle can be restored by supracondylar(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study is to describe the bony and, to our knowledge, previously unreported associated soft-tissue abnormalities seen on MR imaging of dysplasia epiphysealis hemimelica. CONCLUSION MR imaging accurately depicted bony and cartilagenous structural abnormalities in multiple planes and revealed previously undescribed secondary(More)
From 1984 to 1995, 19 patients with cubitus varus resulting from supracondylar humeral fractures underwent lateral closing-wedge osteotomies at The Royal Alexandra Hospital for Children. As the indication for osteotomy in all cases was the cosmetically unacceptable cubitus varus, we reviewed the cosmetic results. Seventeen patients were available for(More)
Phalangeal microgeodic disease is a rare disease that is frequently (though not invariably) related to cold exposure. In most cases, the clinical and radiographic findings of phalangeal microgeodic disease are sufficient to reach the diagnosis. The magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) findings of phalangeal microgeodic disease have been described in four cases(More)
BACKGROUND Tibialis anterior tendon transfer surgery forms a part of Ponseti management for children with congenital talipes equinovarus who, after initial correction, present with residual dynamic supination. Although retrospective studies support good outcomes, prospective longitudinal studies in this population are lacking. QUESTIONS/PURPOSES We(More)
Dysplasia epiphysealis hemimelica is a rare developmental bone dysplasia characterized by an osteocartilaginous tumor arising from an epiphysis. We reviewed the clinical and radiographic findings, including magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), of nine new patients with dysplasia epiphysealis hemimelica. The lower limb was involved in all cases with the ankle(More)
The most common femoral shaft tumours in children are eosinophilic granuloma and Ewing's sarcoma. Three children in the first decade of life with rare femoral shaft tumours are reported. There was one osteosarcoma and two chondrosarcomas. Radiographic differential diagnosis of the femoral shaft tumours and microscopic diagnostic difficulties of(More)
