Although stabilization of the lateral ankle ligament complex (LALC) with augmented techniques is known to be successful, it is associated with a number of complications. We hypothesize that successful stabilization of LALC can be achieved with a woven polyester tape implant via a minimally invasive procedure, as an alternative to tenodesis. Four men with(More)
Gender differences in distal femoral morphology may affect femoral component fit using a standard range of prostheses. The clinical relevance of this is controversial. Standardised measurements were taken from the distal femora of 50 males and 50 females during total knee replacement (TKR). Corresponding measurements were taken from the respective gender(More)
Hamstring strains are common. They are usually treated conservatively, with good results. Thus far, the only subset of patients who have been considered for surgery are those with complete avulsions of the attachments. We describe a new clinical entity: partial rupture of the distal semitendinosus tendon; which has failed to settle with conservative(More)
Polychlorinated aromatic hydrocarbons such as polychlorinated biphenyls and 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (TCDD) are extremely stable and widely distributed environmental pollutants. These chemicals are animal carcinogens and probable human carcinogens, and TCDD is possibly one of the most potent toxins ever evaluated by the United States(More)
Prosthetic ligament use for anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction was popular in the 1980s and 1990s. Information from published studies regarding the long-term outcomes of this surgery is limited. This paper presents the long-term results of stabilization of the ACL deficient knee using the Leeds-Keio synthetic ligament formed from woven(More)
Mammalian cells repair DNA double-strand breaks by illegitimate end-joining or by homologous recombination. We investigated the effects of restriction enzymes on illegitimate and homologous DNA integration in mammalian cells. A plasmid containing the neo(R) expression cassette, which confers G418 resistance, was used to select for illegitimate integration(More)
The Rhodococcus species rarely cause musculoskeletal infections, with only two cases reported in the literature. We report the case of a 53-year-old woman who had an infection develop after first metatarsophalangeal joint fusion. A year after surgery, she continued to have pain and swelling with nonunion. She underwent revision of the arthrodesis and tissue(More)
The authors investigated the prevalence and the difference in the severity of systemic complications following intramedullary nailing of bilateral tibial and femoral shaft fractures. A retrospective chart analysis of 12 consecutive patients with bilateral tibial shaft fractures (TF) and 14 patients with bilateral femoral shaft fractures (FF) was performed.(More)
INTRODUCTION Patients may be at an increased risk of atypical proximal femoral fractures with prolonged bisphosphonate use. PATIENTS AND METHODS This was a retrospective review of patients who sustained a subtrochanteric fracture of the femur in our department between April 2009 and March 2014. The radiographs were reviewed for features of atypical(More)
INTRODUCTION Constrained acetabular inserts are designed as revision solutions for unstable total hip arthroplasties to prevent dislocation and as a possible primary option for elderly patients at risk of recurrent dislocation. PURPOSE Our aim was to establish clinical and radiological outcomes of an 'all-poly' constrained acetabular device and to(More)
