Limited research has analysed paediatric shoulder girdle aneurysmal bone cyst management and outcomes. This study analysed locations affected, investigations, treatments and recurrence in children treated at the London Bone Tumour Unit between 1998 and 2004 and in English and French literature between 1956 and 2004. The proximal humerus and clavicle are(More)
Primary giant cell tumours involving digital bones of the hand are rare lesions which are generally diagnosed at an advanced stage. Accurate diagnosis requires clinical evaluation, imaging studies and histopathological assessment. Conservative treatment by digit-sparing surgery is associated with high recurrence rates. In a ten year retrospective review,(More)
BACKGROUND The influence of modern studded and bladed soccer boots and sidestep cutting on noncontact knee loading during match play conditions is not fully understood. HYPOTHESIS Modern soccer boot type and sidestep cutting compared with straight-ahead running do not significantly influence knee internal tibia axial and valgus moments, anterior joint(More)
Anterior iliac crest bone is a widely used donor site for bone harvesting. It provides an autologous bone graft consisting of cancellous bone that can be packed or cortical bone with greater structural support. Uses include spinal fusion and fracture non-union surgery. Although its use is common, dedicated anatomical and radiological studies analysing graft(More)
The commonest site of osseous tuberculosis is the spine. Most vertebral lesions are contiguous. Current research indicates the incidence of multiple level noncontiguous vertebral tuberculosis is 1.1% to 16%. The aim of this study was to identify the incidence of multiple level noncontiguous vertebral tuberculosis using whole spine magnetic resonance imaging(More)
Aneurysmal bone cysts arising from tubular bones of the hand occur very rarely and require particular diagnostic and therapeutic management techniques. The authors report the diagnostic and surgical management of a monocentric case series of six aneurysmal bone cysts involving the phalangeal and metacarpal bones. In addition to hightlighting the use of(More)
BACKGROUND Shoulder hyperlaxity (SHL) is assessed with clinical signs. Quantification of SHL remains difficult, however, because no quantitative definition has yet been described. With use of a motion capture system (MCS), the aim of this study was to categorize SHL through a volumetric MCS-based definition and to compare this volume with clinical signs(More)
OBJECTIVES We performed a systematic review of the literature to determine the safety and efficacy of bone morphogenetic protein (BMP) compared with bone graft when used specifically for revision spinal fusion surgery secondary to pseudarthrosis. METHODS The MEDLINE, EMBASE and Cochrane Library databases were searched using defined search terms. The(More)
There is a paucity of data detailing management of anterior capsular redundancy (ACR) when using the Latarjet procedure for unidirectional instability. This study aimed to describe the surgical management and to assess the clinical profile of patients presenting with anterior capsular redundancy [ACR(+)] with anterior shoulder instability. Seventy-seven(More)
