The Nottingham Hip Fracture Score (NHFS) was developed to assess the risk of death following a fracture of the hip, based on pre-operative patient characteristics. We performed an independent validation of the NHFS, assessed the degree of geographical variation that exists between different units within the United Kingdom and attempted to define a NHFS(More)
STUDY DESIGN Review and statistical analysis of studies evaluating health-related quality of life (HRQOL) in adolescents with untreated adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS) using Scoliosis Research Society (SRS) outcomes. OBJECTIVE To apply normative values and minimum clinical important differences for the SRS-22r to the literature. Identify whether the(More)

STUDY DESIGN Review and statistical analysis of studies evaluating the effect of surgery on the health-related quality of life of adolescents with adolescent idiopathic scoliosis, using Scoliosis Research Society (SRS) outcomes. OBJECTIVE Apply published minimum clinical important differences (MCID) values for the SRS22r questionnaire to the literature to(More)
We present the case of Achilles tendon rupture in a 54-year-old man while rehabilitating after end-to-end open repair of an acute Achilles tendon rupture. Re-rupture after surgical repair of Achilles tendon is well known. The present case, however, is atypical, because the second rupture occurred significantly proximal to the first rupture.

Surgical reconstruction of the dislocated acromioclavicular joint often requires exposure and instrumentation of the coracoid. This carries risks to the surrounding neurovascular structures. We present a safe and simple technique of primary fixation of the acromioclavicular joint, relying on mechanical principles and biological repair, without the need for(More)

INTRODUCTION Surgical complications may be avoided by preoperative templating in trauma hemiarthroplasty. MATERIALS AND METHODS Digital templates for the Stryker™ range of Thompson's prostheses were created and fifty trauma patients that had undergone cemented hemiarthroplasty were retrospectively templated by 2 blinded surgeons. RESULTS Templating for(More)
