BACKGROUND Foot involvement in osteoarticular tuberculosis is uncommon and isolated bony involvement of foot bones with an osteolytic defect is even more rare; diagnostic and therapeutic delays can occur, worsening the prognosis. We present a retrospective series of osteolytic variety of foot tuberculosis. MATERIALS AND METHODS We present 24 osteolytic(More)
Each year the Society for Information Management (SIM) recognizes innovative business initiatives that use IT to drive measurable results. The SIM 2011 Paper Awards Committee is interested in research that impacts practice. Winning papers will be a collaboration between academics and practitioners. Since SIM's thrust is toward executive management, the work(More)
Calcium and Vitamin D are widely used therapies for Osteoporosis. Vitamin D is not a vitamin in true sense since it is produced in response to the action of sunlight on skin. Vitamin D has multiple roles in the body, not all of them well-understood. Vitamin D supplementation must be considered a form of hormone replacement therapy. Therefore it raises all(More)
PURPOSE To review records of 5 patients with anterior coronal trochlear fractures. METHODS Four men and one woman aged 25 to 46 (mean, 34) years underwent cancellous screw (n=3) or Kirschner wire (n=2) fixation for anterior coronal fractures of the humeral trochlea after falling on a flexed elbow. Patients were operated on through a medial approach. Three(More)
BACKGROUND The treatment of displaced proximal humerus fractures, especially in elderly, remains controversial. The objective of this study was to evaluate functional outcome of locking plate used for fixation of these fractures after open reduction. We also attempted to evaluate the complications and predictors of loss of fixation for such an implant. (More)
BACKGROUND Injuries are a serious cause of mortality and morbidity worldwide, with trauma being the leading cause of death in the first four decades of life. By contrast with the declining rates of injury seen in high-income countries, low-income and middle-income countries (LMICs) are experiencing an increase in injury rates, largely due to increased(More)
BACKGROUND Pubic diastasis, a result of high energy antero-posterior compression (APC) injury, has been managed based on the Young and Burguess classification system. The mode of fixation in APC II injury has, however, been a subject of controversy and some authors have proposed a need to address the issue of partial breach of the posterior pelvic ring(More)
As the prevalence of these endocrine dysfunctions increases, the association of polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) and autoimmune thyroid disease is increasingly being recognised. While the causality of this association is still uncertain, the two conditions share a bidirectional relationship. The exact nature of this link has not been elucidated yet. Both(More)
Recently, the role of (18)F-choline in the detection of parathyroid adenomas has been reported. At our institution, we are currently studying the role of this tracer in comparison to the standard methoxy-isobutyl-isonitrile.(MIBI) scan with single photon emission tomography/computed tomography. Our initial results show that (18)F-choline is at least as good(More)
