We conducted a prospective cohort study investigating the rate and predictors of dissatisfaction among patients after primary total hip arthroplasty (THA). Eight hundred fifty patients were assessed preoperatively and 1 year postoperatively using Patient Reported Outcome Measures. There was a 7% rate of dissatisfaction after THA. After univariate analysis,(More)
INTRODUCTION Obstruction of the third part of the duodenum by the superior mesenteric artery (SMA) can occur following surgical correction of scoliosis. The condition most commonly occurs in significantly underweight patients with severe deformities during the first few days to a week following spinal surgery. CASE PRESENTATION We present the atypical(More)
Longer patient survival and the extension of joint arthroplasty to older patients means that osteoporotic fractures of the femur are often associated with joint implants. This poses a significant trauma work load. This problem is likely to increase over time. The management of these periprosthetic fractures may be difficult and strategies are not(More)
Despite a renewed interest in the development of hormonal contraceptives for men, many discussions about the potential acceptability of a 'male pill' end by speculating whether women would trust their partners to use the method reliably. To determine the views of women, we undertook a survey of 1894 women attending family planning clinics in Scotland (450),(More)
BACKGROUND The current study was designed to investigate the epidemiology and long-term clinical and patient-reported outcomes following simple dislocation of the elbow in adults. METHODS We identified all adult patients treated at our trauma center for a simple dislocation of the elbow during a ten-year period. One hundred and forty patients were(More)
We reviewed 63 trapeziometacarpal arthrodeses (57 patients) performed in our unit between April 2007 and May 2013 for osteoarthritis. K-wires, plates, headless compression screws and memory staples were used for fixation. The average age of patients was 50 (range 20-78) years and there were 36 men and 21 women with a mean follow-up of 36 (range 6-62)(More)
BACKGROUND There is increasing interest in the use of total hip replacement (THR) for reconstruction in patients who have displaced intracapsular hip fractures. Patient selection is important for good outcomes, but criteria have only recently been clearly defined in the form of national guidelines. This study aimed to investigate patient reported outcomes(More)
PURPOSE To identify factors that affect functional outcome one year after distal radial fracture treatment. METHODS 521 women and 121 men aged 16 to 92 (mean, 59) years with distal radial fractures underwent external fixation (n=123), open reduction and internal fixation (n=63), a combination of both (n=10), distal radial osteotomy for symptomatic(More)
BACKGROUND Distal radius fractures are common. The increasing prevalence of osteoporosis contributes to frequently complex articular injuries sustained even after low energy falls. The best method of treating complex type C distal radius fractures is debated. Locked volar plating and external fixation are both widely used with good reported results.(More)
Two hundred and fifty subjects were recruited. Age, sex, hand preference and anthropometric measurements were recorded for each subject. Grip strength was measured using a Jamar hydraulic dynamometer. Multiple regression analyses were performed. One hundred and seventy two subjects were men and 78 were women. Twenty-six subjects were left hand dominant.(More)
