The vascular repair of a lower tibial transverse osteotomy in the New Zealand white rabbit held in an external fixator was studied in three groups. In the first group, composed of 18 animals, the osteotomy gap was maintained throughout repair. Three animals were killed every two weeks up to 12 weeks postoperatively. In the second group, composed of three(More)
A retrospective study was carried out on 1,250 patients who were referred to the orthopaedic clinic of the Dreadnought Unit during 1989 and 1990. These included 299 actively serving or retired seafarers (24%) with knee pathology, who form the basis of this study. Fifty-one per cent of these patients had a diagnosis of knee osteoarthritis, with a(More)
The movement of 75 two-component hemi-arthroplasties, implanted following displaced subcapital fracture of the femoral neck, were examined radiologically in equal numbers of Hastings hips (22 mm), 22-mm Bi-articular hips and 32-mm Bi-articular hips. A classification of the movement of the two-component hemi-arthroplasty was devised. The 22-mm Bi-articular(More)
A 13-year-old boy who had hemophilia A was reported with pain in the left thigh and hip on walking. He had no history of trauma. Severe hemophilia A is diagnosed with a Factor VIII level of <1 iu/dl.

At our hospital 461 children were admitted for elective orthopaedic and reconstructivesurgery between January and December 2003; 90 of these (19.5%) were positive for malaria, and 37 (8%) had haemoglobin levels below 8 g/dL. The mean delay between admission and operation was five days for patients without anaemia or malaria, 7.17 days for patients with(More)
We report the scintigraphic-appearances of painful bipartite patella in 25-year-old man a 2 1/2 years history of unexplained patellar pain. Painful bipartite patella is a rare cause of chronic post-traumatic patellar pain. Bone scintigraphy, by demonstrating increased uptake by the painful accessory bipartite fragment, appears to be an imaging method of(More)
We report a series of 48 glomus tumours of the hand, which have been reviewed with an average follow-up of 4.5 years (2-14). The tumour was nearly always sited in the distal digit, para-ungual (22 cases), more rarely subungual or under the pulp, with an even distribution among the fingers. Diagnosis was made preoperatively in 37 of 47 tumours of the digits,(More)
