Based on biomechanical anatomical studies, double-bundle reconstruction of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) was introduced to achieve better stability in the knee, particularly in respect of rotatory loads. An in vivo, computer-assisted, double-bundle (DB) ACL reconstruction is superior to a single-bundle (SB) ACL reconstruction at reducing rotatory,(More)
The purposes of this study were to investigate the mode of failure and survivorship of an independently performed series of medial Oxford unicompartmental knee arthroplasties. The study included 43 knees in 40 patients with a mean follow-up of 14.88 years: 13 knees (11 patients) had revision surgery (30%), and ten patients required conversion to total knee(More)
Magnification of anteroposterior radiographs of the pelvis is variable. To improve the accuracy of templating, reliable and radiographer-friendly methods of scaling are necessary. We assessed two methods of scaling digital radiographs of the pelvis: placing a coin of known diameter in the plane of interest between the patient's thighs, and using a caliper(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the immunolocalisation of beta-dystroglycan (beta-DG) and specific matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs)-3, -9, -13 and a disintegrin like and metalloproteinase thrombospondin type 1 motif 4 (ADAMTS-4) within the joint tissues of patients with osteoarthritis (OA) and unaffected controls. DESIGN Cartilage, synovium and synovial fluid(More)
PURPOSE Perilunate dislocations and transscaphoid perilunate fracture dislocations are associated with a high incidence of posttraumatic arthritis. According to the current literature, at medium-term follow-up, radiological signs of arthritis do not correlate with functional scores. The aim of this study was to evaluate patient hand function and the(More)
The purpose of this study was to assess the efficacy of pulsed radiofrequency (PRF) applied to the suprascapular nerve for pain relief in medically unfit patients with painful cuff tear arthropathy. Twelve patients with chronic shoulder pain due to cuff tear arthropathy were recruited. The mean age was 68 years (range, 60-83 years). The suprascapular nerve(More)
INTRODUCTION The desmoplastic fibroma is a rare locally invasive bone tumour. Surgical resection with minimal margins is recommended. PRESENTATION OF CASE A 15 year-old boy was referred with chronic left thigh pain. MRI revealed a bone lesion within the cavity of the inner table of the left iliac wing without invasion of the underlying bone marrow. A(More)
A 90-year-old man on hormonal treatment for invasive (T4) adenocarcinoma of the prostate presented as an emergency with a paraphimosis secondary to placement of four circumferential key rings around his penis. He had experienced referred penile pain from his prostate cancer, and to overcome this, had attempted to ‘gate out’ his pain by constricting his(More)
The Pins and Rubber Traction System (PRTS) can be used to treat proximal interphalangeal intra-articular fractures. Our experience is that outcomes are not always excellent and that many patients have reduced joint function or residual deformities. The aim of this study was to evaluate the reasons behind the poorer outcomes of some of the patients treated(More)
