A prospective study was carried out to evaluate the role of ultrasound in early detection of infections of bone. Presence of a hypoechoic collection adjacent to bone was considered highly suggestive of osteomyelitis whereas a hypoechoic collection away from the bone implied a soft tissue abscess. Cellulitis presented as increased subcutaneous thickness. Of… (More)
A 25-yr-old female presented with a slowly progressive swelling, occurring over an 8-yr period, in the right lower leg. The swelling was tender and fixed to the underlying bone. Clinical and radiological diagnosis was giant cell tumor (GCT) of the bone. Aspiration cytology smears were cellular showing an admixture of chondroid, stellate, and fibrocytic… (More)
In order to assess the relative merits of patellectomy and osteosynthesis with tension band wires in patellar fractures, 66 patients given patellectomy and 30 given tension band wiring for almost identical fractures of the patella have been analysed. Following patellectomy only about half the patients achieved excellent results while after osteosynthesis… (More)
Twenty-six patients with femoral neck fractures were treated by open reduction, cancellous screw fixation and free fibular grafting. The patients were between 14 and 50 years of age. There were 16 old and 10 fresh fractures. Four patients had radiological signs of avascular necrosis before the treatment was instituted. Bony union was achieved in all… (More)
A lipoblastoma, an uncommon tumor of childhood that can be mistaken for a liposarcoma, was preoperatively diagnosed by fine needle aspiration cytology. The characteristic features on the cytologic smears were the presence of immature fat cells in the form of spindle-shaped cells, stellate cells and vacuolated lipoblasts along with lipocytes. The cytologic… (More)
The standard treatment for an appendiceal mass is conservative therapy followed by appendectomy after 6 to 10 weeks. With the advent of antibiotics designed to prevent the growth of anaerobes, early appendectomy can now be carried out without complication. The authors studied 56 patients with appendiceal mass formation, 26 (group A) treated conventionally… (More)
Four cases of acquired urethral diverticula in male subjects are reviewed. All patients presented with complications such as urinary tract infection, urethral fistulas and stone or sequestrum formation in the diverticulum. The recommended treatment is excision of the diverticulum and repair of the urethra. The relevant literature has been reviewed.
Record-files of 126 pyeloplasties of different types performed on 119 patients (7 bilaterally), between 1966 and 1989, have been reviewed in an attempt to illustrate the selective approach to hydronephrosis due to ureteropelvic junction obstruction. Clinical success was achieved in all cases. A new grading system for assessing urographic impairment has been… (More)
A case of Mycobacterium marinum infection of a finger is described. This is a rare condition in the UK. The relevant literature is reviewed.
