This is a prospective study to evaluate the efficacy of percutanous bone marrow grafting in patients with established tibial non-union and minimal deformity, whilst on the waiting list for open surgical procedures. Twenty consecutive patients with established tibial non-union and minimal deformity were treated by percutanous bone marrow injection under(More)
BACKGROUND The optimal bladder management method should preserve renal function and minimize the risk of urinary tract complications. The present study is conducted to assess the overall incidence of urinary tract infections (UTI) and other urological complications in spinal cord injury patients (SCI), and to compare the incidence of these complications(More)
Open reduction and internal fixation was employed in the treatment of 25 severely displaced fractures and fracture-dislocations of the proximal humerus. Our aims were accurate reduction and stable fixation to allow early mobilisation and to achieve full functional recovery. In 15 fractures an AO T-plate was used and in 10 a bent semitubular plate was(More)
The free hand technique remains the most popular method for distal locking; however, radiation exposure is a major concern. In an endeavour to overcome this concern, distal locking with the nail over nail technique is evaluated. Seventy patients with femoral diaphyseal fractures treated by intramedullary nailing were divided in two groups for distal(More)
To retrospectively study the long term results of high tibial valgus osteotomy in management of primary medial compartment osteoarthritis, with special reference to patient satisfaction and functional assessment, we conducted this study in radiologically established 50 knees of patients with primary osteoarthrosis of knee. In these patients with medial(More)
BACKGROUND Different operative techniques used for treating displaced proximal humeral fractures could result in malunion, non-union, osteonecrosis of humeral head, loosening of screw and loss of reduction particularly in comminuted and osteoporotic fractures. Locking compression plate (LPHP) has been proposed for open reduction and internal fixation of(More)
Expansive laminoplasty, a procedure used more and more often for cervical myelopathy, was carried out in patients with lumbar spinal stenosis in the Department of Orthopaedics, Paraplegia, Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation of our institute. Twenty-five such clinico-radiologically proven cases were operated upon. For radiological evaluation, computed(More)
BACKGROUND Hydatid cysts caused by Echinococcus sp can produce tissue cysts anywhere in the body. Skeletal cystic lesions are rare, yet because of their unusual presentation diagnosis can be missed. CASE REPORT We report a case of extensive hydatidosis of the femur with pathological fracture and involvement of the pelvis bone, without involvement of(More)
BACKGROUND No consensus exists regarding the optimal treatment of ipsilateral femoral neck and shaft fractures. The three major issues related to these fractures are the optimal timing of surgery, which fracture to stabilize first, and the optimal implant to use. In an effort to find answers to these three key issues, we report our experience of managing 27(More)
