Ankle fracture is one of the most common lower limb fractures for they account for 9% of all fractures representing a significant portion of the trauma workload. Ankle fractures usually affect young men and older women, however, below the age of 50; ankle fractures are the commonest in men. Two commonly used classification systems for ankle fractures(More)
Metal-on-metal hip resurfacing is undertaken worldwide. This procedure helps preserve femoral bone stock and allows patients to return to high activity sports. Most outcome studies are individual surgeon case series from single centers where the results and outcomes are evaluated by the same surgeon. One method of increasing the external validity of a(More)
Metal-on-metal total hip replacements (THRs) with large femoral heads have been associated with elevated levels of cobalt (Co) and chromium (Cr), which have been attributed to high levels of wear at the articular surface. Our unit recently published data showing a significant increase in the mean levels of Co ions in patients with a 36-mm diameter femoral(More)
The anatomy of the shoulder joint comprises a relatively large humeral head with a shallow glenoid cavity allowing a remarkable range of motion at the expense of inherent instability. Despite anterior shoulder dislocations being the most common type encountered, bilateral dislocations are rare and almost always posterior. The aetiology is usually direct or(More)
Achilles tendon ruptures tend to occur more commonly in healthy men between the ages of 30 and 50 years who have had no previous injury or problem reported in the affected leg. The injury is usually due to sudden forced plantar flexion of the foot, unexpected dorsiflexion of the foot and violent dorsiflexion of a plantar flexed foot, all of which occur(More)
The fabella is a normal anatomical variant and has been found in up to 30% of the general population. We present the case of a 67-year-old man with pain down the lateral aspect of the left lower limb of 18 months duration. A clinical examination revealed a palpable fabella and nerve conduction studies confirmed a common peroneal nerve neuropathy at its(More)
Historically, the surgical treatment of flexor tendon injuries has always been associated with controversy. It was not until 1967, when the paper entitled Primary repair of flexor tendons in no man's land was presented at the American Society of Hand Surgery, which reported excellent results and catalyzed the implementation of this technique into worldwide(More)
Introduction Acute gastrointestinal stress ulceration is a common and serious complication of trauma. Prophylactic proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) or histamine receptor antagonists have been used in poly-trauma, burns and head and spinal injuries, as well as on intensive care units, for the prevention of acute gastric stress ulcers. Methods We prospectively(More)
Capsule endoscopy has revolutionized the investigation of small intestinal pathology with an increasing repertoire of indications. We present the first reported case of an aspirated capsule presenting after a long asymptomatic period that was removed with no permanent pulmonary sequelae. This report highlights a cohort of patients who could be susceptible(More)
PURPOSE To compare the outcome after early versus late surgery for closed ankle fractures in terms of the length of hospital stay and infection rate. METHODS Records of 95 men and 119 women aged 14 to 92 (mean, 46) years who underwent open reduction and internal fixation for ankle fractures during three 6-month periods in 2004, 2007, and 2010 were(More)
