The Austin Moore prosthesis is commonly used for displaced femoral neck fractures. In this study the rate of re-operation following Austin Moore hemiarthroplasty was studied. Ten out of 88 cases (11.36%) were re-operated on within the first year following the original operations. The indications for re-operation were infection (4.5%), dislocation (3.4%) and(More)
AIM To evaluate a prognostic scoring system for elderly patients with hip fractures, which can, on admission, predict on the basis of pre-injury prognostic factors the possible length of stay in hospital, progress of rehabilitation, level of self-caring and rehousing needs at discharge. METHODS A prognostic scoring system, developed on the basis of(More)
The objective of the study is to assess blood transfusion practices in an orthopaedic unit in order to address the issue of high consumption of banked blood. Areas of weakness in current practice were identified and guidelines were produced to help reduce the consumption of allogenic blood. A retrospective audit of case notes and haematological records of(More)
A retrospective study of 85 patients undergoing primary total knee replacement (TKR), who also received autologous blood transfusion (ABT) to compensate for the perioperative blood loss. In our series 16.4% of the patients needed allogenic blood transfusion. Of the remaining 83.4% only 49.5% received autologous transfusion. Autologous transfusion was(More)

Infra-patellar tendon is the least common site for the disruption of extensor mechanism of knee joint. Bilateral simultaneous patellar tendon ruptures are very rare and extremely uncommon in healthy individuals. We report two cases of simultaneous complete bilateral patellar tendon ruptures, one in a healthy adult male and the second in a patient suffering(More)
In 1995, we audited the outcome following Gartland's type III supracondylar fractures of the humerus in children. Closed reduction under anaesthesia (MUA) and cast immobilisation was the treatment of choice, with the treatment changed whenever displacement occurred. The result of the audit showed that 86% of cases were treated with this method. The rate of(More)
