We reviewed the results of modified Weaver–Dunn procedure in patients with persistent painful shoulder following acromioclavicular joint dislocations. Modified Weaver–Dunn procedure using of mersilene tape was done. There were 15 patients with Rockwood type III injury. The mean age and time interval for surgery was 42 years and 21 months, respectively. The(More)
Little information exists regarding the long term prognosis following ankle arthroscopy, particularly in avoiding further major surgery. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the prognosis of arthroscopic ankle treatment. We also investigated the relationship between the arthroscopic treatment and time for a further major ankle surgery. In this(More)
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the relationship between radiological and functional results in patients with extra-articular fractures of the distal radius. We conducted a prospective study of radiological and functional assessment in 95 consecutively selected extra-articular distal radius fractures. There were two patient groups: more than 60(More)
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the benefits of suction drainage following primary total joint arthroplasty. We reviewed primary total hip and knee replacements separately and together in 126 consecutive patients. There were 63 patients each in the drainage and no drainage groups. Sex distribution and anticoagulant use were similar in the two(More)
Surgical findings of traumatic neurapraxia and neurotmesis in digital nerve injuries of hand have significantly different prognosis and surgeons managing such injuries must be able to provide the expected incidence of these injuries along with decision on surgical exploration. There is a paucity of data in the literature defining the incidence of traumatic(More)
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the changes in alignment during the course of treatment for extra-articular distal radius fracture and the relationship of initial and intermediate radiographs, with the final radiograph taken at fracture union. A cohort of 96 consecutive patients who were conservatively managed for extra-articular distal radius(More)
Odontoid-lateral mass asymmetry is a finding occasionally noted on properly centered, open-mouth anteroposterior (AP) radiographs obtained following trauma. Controversy exists as to the clinical significance of this finding in patients with few or no symptoms. We retrospectively evaluated 13 patients who presented with radiographic evidence of(More)
