We describe the outcome of a series of 66 consecutive porous coated low contact stress (LCS) unicompartmental knee arthroplasty (UKA) cases performed in 52 patients for osteoarthritis (OA) by a single surgeon. Both survival, using the endpoint of revision for any cause, and knee function, using the Oxford knee score (OKS) as a validated outcome measure,(More)
Acetabular revision in a total hip arthroplasty (THA) with pelvic discontinuity is uncommon and challenging. Optimal management remains controversial, particularly with graft and implant selection. Interpretation of outcomes is confounded by the heterogeneity of patterns of bone loss and the lack of long-term results in great numbers for any given choice of(More)
A retrospective review was undertaken of preoperative and day 3 postoperative haemoglobin (Hb) levels in all unicompartmental knee arthroplasty (UKA) procedures performed by a single surgeon. Sixty-six UKAs were performed using the same prosthesis through an open approach with patella eversion. This group was compared with 212 UKAs performed using a(More)
This retrospective study aimed at comparing the cost of operative treatment versus non-operative treatment in the management of isolated paediatric femoral shaft fracture, in a single Trauma and Orthopaedic unit in a district general hospital in South East England. Patients were divided into three groups according to their treatment, and the cost was(More)
Current cementing techniques used during hip arthroplasty aim to maximize the bond at the bone-cement interface in an effort to increase the longevity of the prosthesis. To accomplish this, one must generate high intramedullary pressures, which are known to be associated with complications such as cement implantation syndrome. We record a rare complication(More)
Clubfoot or congenital talipes equinovarus is a common condition affecting babies and non-surgical treatment involves serial manipulation and plaster casting for many weeks. The casts are susceptible to soiling during this time, which makes management and child care even more challenging. The authors report initial experience in a typical district general(More)
The aim of this study was to determine the relationship between preoperative single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) scan findings and intraoperative assessments of knee osteoarthritis (OA) in patients undergoing tibiofemoral unicompartmental knee arthroplasty (UKA). Fifty knees in 46 patients undergoing UKA were investigated preoperatively with(More)
Osteolysis is a common complication following uncemented total hip arthroplasty and is usually secondary to a biological reaction to polyethylene wear debris. The resultant periprosthestic bone resorption and granulomata is frequently not associated with implant loosening. In such circumstances, an option is to leave the well-fixed component, debride the(More)
Arthrometry has an established role in the measurement of knee laxity in anterior cruciate ligament injury and following reconstruction. The role of routine intraoperative arthrometry in anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction is poorly defined, and this study was designed to test the hypothesis that intraoperative arthrometry provides an objective method(More)
