We explored the trends over time and the geographical variation in the use of subacromial decompression and rotator cuff repair in 152 local health areas (Primary Care Trusts) across England. The diagnostic and procedure codes of patients undergoing certain elective shoulder operations between 2000/2001 and 2009/2010 were extracted from the Hospital Episode(More)
This study reports on the first 150 consecutive Oxford cementless unicompartmental knee arthroplasties (UKA) performed in an independent centre (126 patients). All eligible patients had functional scores (Oxford knee score and high activity arthroplasty score) recorded pre-operatively and at two- and five-years of follow-up. Fluoroscopically aligned(More)
We studied the bone mineral density (BMD) and the bone mineral content (BMC) of the proximal tibia in patients with a well-functioning uncemented Oxford medial compartment arthroplasty using the Lunar iDXA bone densitometer. Our hypothesis was that there would be decreased BMD and BMC adjacent to the tibial base plate and increased BMD and BMC at the tip of(More)
AIMS   To determine the utility of immunophenotyping for classification of hepatocellular adenomas resected at one Scottish centre. METHODS AND RESULTS   This study comprised a retrospective review and immunophenotyping of consecutive resected benign hepatocellular tumours. Fifty-five patients (seven men) had 64 adenomas and 26 focal nodular hyperplasias(More)
The goal of this study was to evaluate whether the Lunar iDXA densitometer can accurately measure the bone mineral density (BMD) around the tibial component of the Oxford unicompartment knee replacement (UKR). Both knees in 20 patients were measured 3 times in the supine position with repositioning between each scan. We chose 7 regions of interest to(More)

AIM Controversy surrounds prevention, detection and clinical relevance of pulmonary embolism (PE) following arthroplasty in orthopaedic patients. We aimed to review the rates of computer tomography pulmonary angiography (CTPA), PE and fatal PE following total joint replacement. METHOD Mixed retrospective/prospective review of CTPA requests and PE(More)
