Breakage of K-wires and stainless steel wires which are used for fracture fixation is not uncommon, but migration is rare. We report a case of migration of broken K-wire used for patella tension band wiring to the popliteal fossa. The broken hardware was removed surgically. We would like to suggest that K-wire and wire fixation used for treatment of(More)
The paper presents a 2D analytical model for the potential function and threshold voltage of symmetric Double-Gate (DG) MOSFETs with vertical Gaussian doping profile in the channel.
A 67-year-old male presented with a gradually progressive low back pain of 2 years duration. The patient was leading a retired life and there was no history of chronic fever or significant trauma. There was no radiation of pain or any features suggestive of claudication. There was no history of any comorbidity. The pain was aggravated with extension of the(More)
Intramedullary nailing is considered the standard of care for closed femoral shaft fractures. Several studies have shown that reamed intramedullary nailing is a safe procedure in fracture shaft femur with lower nonunion rates than unreamed nailing. Reamed intramedullary nailing provides better stability because of increased contact between the nail and(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the long-term clinical and functional results of arthroscopic elbow synovectomy in rheumatoid arthritis patients with refractory elbow synovitis in terms of improvement in pain, function, and active range of motion (AROM) or arc of motion. METHOD Fifteen rheumatoid elbows in 13 patients, not responding to DMARD therapy and with(More)
BACKGROUND Dislocation of the patella can occur around its vertical as well as horizontal axis. However, near 180 degree rotation of the patella around its vertical axis within the intercondylar notch without its complete dislocation has never been previously reported to the best of our knowledge. We report one such neglected case along with its management.(More)
Giant cell tumour of tendon sheath is a benign soft tissue tumour arising from the tendon sheath. The involvement of foot and ankle by such tumours is relatively rare. Children are not commonly afflicted by this condition. All such tumours are reported to arise either from a single tendon sheath or one joint. We report a case of giant cell tumour of tendon(More)
Spontaneous migration of a retained bullet is rare. We are presenting here a case of a 24-year-old male with spontaneous migration of bullet from arm to forearm. At the time of initial injury, bullet was left inside the arm as it was deep and patient had no complaints. Three months after injury, he started complaining of pain over forearm and tingling(More)
Weismann-Netter-Stuhl syndrome is a rarely reported cause of bowed legs; hence a thorough clinical and radiological examination is needed for its diagnosis. In view of the paucity of reports guiding the treatment of the deformity, we propose a one-level/two-level osteotomy with intramedullary nail fixation as a treatment modality for the tibial bowing.
