The purpose of this study was to assess the stability of a developmental pelvic reconstruction system which extends the concept of triangular osteosynthesis with fixation anterior to the lumbosacral pivot point. An unstable Tile type-C fracture, associated with a sacral transforaminal fracture, was created in synthetic pelves. The new concept was compared(More)
We describe 22 cases of bizarre parosteal osteochondromatous proliferation, or Nora's lesion. These are surface-based osteocartilaginous lesions typically affecting the hands and feet. All patients were identified from the records of a regional bone tumour unit and were treated between 1985 and 2009. Nine lesions involved the metacarpals, seven the(More)
The safety of treating low-grade chondral tumours by primary surgery without a pre- operative diagnostic needle biopsy was assessed by looking at the concordance between radiological and histological diagnoses. A retrospective review of the departmental histopathology registry from 2005 to 2009 was performed to identify cases of intramedullary chondral(More)
The treatment of a congenital venous malformation using endovenous radiofrequency ablation in a patient is described. The patient initially underwent two treatments of foam sclerotherapy with moderate success. Later the main feeding vessel of the venous malformation became evident on examination with venous duplex and was identified as the great saphenous(More)
The aim of this study was to establish whether the proximity of significant neurovascular structures around the surgical excision results in higher rates of recurrence and poorer survival outcomes. A retrospective study of all patients treated at a regional bone tumour unit for proximal fibula Ewing's tumours and osteosarcomas was conducted, and in total 17(More)
An unusual Salter-Harris Type 1 fracture variant of the distal phalanx of the index finger is described. The epiphysis was dislocated, sitting dorsally over the middle phalanx head with the articular surface facing dorsal. Reduction could only be achieved through an open procedure. The reduction was stable without supplemental fixation.
This case report describes the successful use of a novel "conservative hip replacement" in conditions precluding the use of a standard total hip arthroplasty in a 70-year-old man. The femoral canal was occluded because of previous surgery for a bone tumor in the subtrochanteric region. The patient continues to do well at 4 years with minimal discomfort. At(More)
INTRODUCTION Intravenous tranexamic acid (IV TXA) is a recognised pharmaceutical intervention utilised to minimise blood loss and allogenic blood transfusion. However, the use of IV TXA in hip fracture surgery remains inconclusive. We conducted a meta-analysis to investigate the role of TXA in operative hip fracture management on operative and total blood(More)
