Acetabular dysplasia causes difficulty in achieving adequate coverage of the acetabular component during total hip arthroplasty (THA). Bulk femoral-head autografting is one technique that has been used to achieve better coverage of the acetabular component. Long-term follow-up studies have shown a significant failure rate when this technique has been used(More)
Limb lengthening by callus distraction and external fixation has a high rate of complications. We describe our experience using an intramedullary nail (Fitbone) which contains a motorised and programmable sliding mechanism for limb lengthening and bone transport. Between 2001 and 2004 we lengthened 13 femora and 11 tibiae in ten patients (seven men and(More)
Radiographic imaging techniques have proved to be of limited value in characterizing chest masses. Likewise, scintigraphic techniques with tumor-seeking single photon emitting agents have shown marginal practical benefit. In contrast, high resolution PET with [F-18]-2-fluoro-2-D-deoxyglucose (FDG) offers a unique opportunity to distinguish benign from(More)
Displaced distal femoral fractures in elderly patients benefit from surgical fixation. We describe the use of a retrograde femoral nail to treat these fractures. The implant has a special condyle screw and nut that allows for manual compression of the fracture when there is an additional inter-condylar split. We present our results when using this implant(More)
A stress fracture is caused by repetitive or unusual loading of a bone leading to mechanical failure. Fatigue type stress fractures occur in normal bone exposed to abnormally high repetitive loads, whereas insufficiency type stress fractures occur in abnormal bone exposed to normal loads. We describe three cases of insufficiency stress fractures that have(More)
BACKGROUND Schwannomas are uncommon slow growing tumours arising from the nerve sheath or Schwann cell. OBJECTIVE To report a case of multiple schwannomas arising form the achilles paratenon. METHODS A 38 year old man presented lumps on the dorsum of his leg. He was clinically evaluated, subjected to imaging studies and surgery. RESULTS 3 separate(More)
A clinical and radiographic review was undertaken in 27 patients (30 feet) who underwent a chevron osteotomy stabilized with a double loop of polydioxanone suture. The mean patient age at the time of surgery was 40 years (range, 16 to 66 years). At 6 weeks postoperatively, all patients showed clinical and radiographic union at the osteotomy site. In 1 foot,(More)
INTRODUCTION Various methods using CT scan have been described to diagnose distal tibiofibular syndesmotic injuries. However, CT scan does not take into account the amount of cartilage within the distal tibiofibular joint and could therefore lead to false positive results. We present the first study correlating the findings of the distal tibiofibular(More)
BACKGROUND Many ankle arthrodesis techniques excise the fibula or require a fibular osteotomy. Advantages of fibular preservation include increased surface area for bony union, preservation of the peroneal groove, prevention of valgus drift in cases of delayed union, and facilitation of future ankle arthroplasty. The goal of this study was to evaluate(More)
