Giant Cell tumour (GCT) or Osteoclastoma is a benign locally aggressive tumour with a tendency for local recurrence. Long tubular bones (75-90%) are frequent sites of involvement. GCT constitutes 5% of all primary bone tumours. Metachronous multicentric giant cell tumour of bone is a rare entity. Multicentric GCT, in contrast to unifocal GCT, has a tendency(More)
Myositis ossificans progressiva is a rare connective tissue disorder. We present here a case of myositis ossificans progressiva with some unusual presentations and associated congenital skeletal anomalies that are reported very infrequently in the literature. The case report highlights the importance of early diagnosis in a case of rapidly progressive(More)
BACKGROUND Time from injury to fixation of femoral neck fractures has been postulated as a vital determinant for rate of complications; however, no prospective study is available in the English literature. Delay, unfortunately, is inevitable in developing countries. The aim of the present study is to retrospectively review the outcome after delayed fixation(More)
Ewing's sarcoma is a malignant non-osteogenic primary tumor of the bone. It is one of the most common primary malignant tumors of bone. Peak incidence is noticed in second decade of life with male preponderance of 1.6:1. It occurs most frequently in long bones and flat bones of pelvic girdles. In 30% cases, Ewing's sarcoma is multicentric in origin. In(More)
BACKGROUND Neglected femoral neck fracture in adults still poses a formidable challenge. Existing treatment options varies from osteotomy (with or without graft) to osteosynthesis using various implants and grafting techniques (muscle pedicle, vascularized, and nonvascularized fibula). The aim of this study was to assess outcome of nonvascularized fibular(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the use of fibular grafting for fresh femoral neck fractures with posterior comminution. METHODS 18 women and 15 men aged 20 to 60 years underwent osteosynthesis and fibular strut grafting supplemented with 7.0-mm cannulated hip screws for Garden grades III (n=21) and IV (n=12) femoral neck fractures associated with posterior(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the role of locked compression plates (LCPs) in management of peri- and intra-articular fractures around the knee. METHODS Twenty distal femoral and 20 proximal tibial fractures were fixed with LCPs. The types of femoral fractures were A1 (four), A2 (three), A3 (two), C1 (one), C2 (seven) and C3 (three). The types of tibial fractures(More)
OBJECTIVE Patients often reach the hospital late after passage of golden hours (initial 6 hours) after sustaining high-velocity injuries. The decision of internal fixation in Gustilo's Type IIIA and IIIB fractures becomes a formidable challenge in patients reaching late. The purpose of the present study was to find out if internal fixation could be safely(More)
We conducted a study to determine the effectiveness of the Ponseti technique in the management of idiopathic congenital clubfoot in patients older than 1 year of age. A total of 19 patients with 28 clubfeet (16 males [84.2%], 3 females [15.8%]) were included in the present study. The mean age at presentation was 2.7 (range 1 to 3.5) years. The results of(More)
