The outcome after total hip replacement has improved with the development of surgical techniques, better pain management and the introduction of enhanced recovery pathways. These pathways require a multidisciplinary team to manage pre-operative education, multimodal pain control and accelerated rehabilitation. The current economic climate and restricted(More)
We report the five year outcomes of a two-stage approach for infected total hip replacement. This is a single-surgeon experience at a tertiary centre where the more straightforward cases are treated using single-stage exchange. This study highlights the vital role of the multidisciplinary team in managing these cases. A total of 125 patients (51 male, 74(More)
INTRODUCTION Total knee replacement (TKR) is a very common surgical procedure. Improved pain management techniques, surgical practices and the introduction of novel interventions have enhanced the patient's postoperative experience after TKR. Safe, efficient pathways are needed to address the increasing need for knee arthroplasty in the UK. Enhanced(More)
Free iron in serum has been found in several disease conditions including diabetes. In the present work, we studied the relationship between free iron, fasting blood glucose (FBG) and glycated haemoglobin (HbA1c). Study was carried out on 50 type 2 diabetes cases under poor glycemic control associated with complications, 53 type 2 diabetes cases under good(More)
The increasing need for total hip replacement (THR) in an ageing population will inevitably generate a larger number of revision procedures. The difficulties encountered in dealing with the bone deficient acetabulum are amongst the greatest challenges in hip surgery. The failed acetabular component requires reconstruction to restore the hip centre and(More)
Revision total knee arthroplasty (TKA) is a complex procedure which carries both a greater risk for patients and greater cost for the treating hospital than does a primary TKA. As well as the increased cost of peri-operative investigations, blood transfusions, surgical instrumentation, implants and operating time, there is a well-documented increased length(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Limited information exists regarding thrombolysis among anticoagulated acute stroke patients. We present data from three consecutive patients, on active warfarin therapy, treated with intra-arterial reteplase. CASES All patients were screened for the presence of intracranial hemorrhage. Warfarin was reversed with fresh frozen plasma(More)
Out of 500 dairy buffaloes examined for traumatic reticulitis in two farms, 51 buffaloes (10.2 %) were diagnosed as having the syndrome in its subacute and chronic forms. Of this 51 diseased animals, 39 had idiopathic mastitis (76.5 %). This high percentage of mastitis cases associated with traumatic reticulitis is considered as being four times the(More)
BACKGROUND In general, viral infections of the central nervous system (CNS) manifest as encephalitis and, less commonly, as meningoencephalitis or aseptic meningitis. Varicella zoster virus (VZV) is an uncommon cause of encephalitis. METHODS Herpes zoster (shingles) is a cutaneous reactivation of previous chickenpox infection due to VZV. Herpes zoster may(More)
Oxfendazole 2 is a broad spectrum anthelmintic belonging to the benzimidazole group of anthelmintics. A trial was carried out at the Wadi-Elmollack Farm in Sharkia Governorate to evaluate its efficacy in the treatment of gastrointestinal nematode infection in naturally infested sheep. The effect of treatment on gener~ii health and condition, growth rate and(More)
