A retrospective radiographic evaluation of 39 acetabulae reconstructed with Trilock press-fit components (Depuy, Warsaw, IN) without use of supplementary fixation was performed. The following radiographic criteria were evaluated: change in component inclination angle, migration, osteolytic areas, and radiolucent lines. Acetabular components were considered… (More)
Hyperthermia is becoming of increasing interest as a method of treating cancer. A considerable amount of experimental work has been carried out over the past 10 to 15 years, and more recently an increasing number of centres are treating patients with hyperthermia. It does, however, very much remain an experimental method at this time and only to be used… (More)
In vitro cultures of human bone marrow have been used to study normal haemopoiesis and to gain information to aid in the treatment of leukaemia patients. A workshop on the development of semi-solid bone marrow cultures was held for two days in Washington on 15 and 16 August 1976. The participants of this workshop discussed some of the technical problems… (More)
The incidence of heterotopic ossification after total hip replacement using the direct lateral approach is compared to the incidence using the transtrochanteric approach. All the initial ectopic ossification occurred by six months following the implant with noncemented fixation. The direct lateral approach adds slightly to the incidence of ectopic… (More)
Fungal infections have only rarely been reported to occur in patients having undergone total knee arthroplasty. This case report documents the first known case of Aspergillus fumigatus as the offending organism. Its initial presentation as a popliteal cyst further reinforces the known association of popliteal cysts and intra-articular knee pathology.
Intra-articular tumors of the knee joint causing intermittent locking are extremely rare. A 39-year-old woman with the complaint of joint locking had a pedunculated intra-articular mass and nodular synovitis.
Undoubtedly one of the major problems that continues to bedevil the recognition and classification of lymphomas is the ability of pathologists to reliably and reproducibly identify the component cells. This, in turn, relates to the fixation and processing artefacts of the relatively crude methods used in diagnostic histopathology. The-wider use of cytology,… (More)
A 45-year-old man was treated for peroneal nerve compression secondary to an osteophyte in the posterior compartment of the knee. Surgical excision led to complete resolution of symptoms.
