The problems in infected nonunion include multiple sinuses, osteomyelitis, bone and soft tissue loss, osteopenia, adjacent joint stiffness, complex deformities, limb-length inequalities, and multidrug-resistant polybacterial infection. Bone gap and active infection are the crucial factors relating to treatment and prognosis. Gaps larger than 4 cm likely(More)
Osteopetrosis is a rare inherited skeletal disorder characterized by increased density. The increased fragility of such dense bone results in a greater incidence of fractures, especially around hip and proximal femur. The surgical treatment of such fractures is difficult due to hard but brittle structure of bone. Herein we report a case of bilateral(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to determine the clinical course and functional outcome of acute septic arthritis treated by arthroscopic drainage and debridement with continuous suction irrigation. METHODS Eighteen subsequent cases of acute septic arthritis of hip and knee were included in this study. Complete hemogram, erythrocyte sedimentation(More)
Tubercular arthritis affecting the foot is uncommon. Isolated calcaneocuboid joint tuberculosis has never been reported in the literature. Herein we report a case of 43-year-old male who presented with insidious onset pain in hindfoot of 4 months duration. Radiograph revealed destruction of calcaneocuboid joint along with cuboid. Computed Tomography scan(More)
BACKGROUND Femoral tunnel location is of critical importance for successful outcome of ACL reconstruction. The aim was to study the femoral tunnel created by placing free hand guide wire through tibial tunnel, using the toggle of the guide wire in the tibial tunnel to improve femoral tunnel location. MATERIALS AND METHODS 30 cases of a single bundle(More)
To study the outcome of ACL reconstruction by retrograde outside-in (OI) creation of femoral tunnel. ACL reconstruction was done in 41 cases by OI technique. The tip of 115° femoral guide was placed at posterior aspect of femoral foot print of ACL. Reaming was done from outside-in over guide pin. The length of femoral tunnel was obtained by measuring guide(More)
PURPOSE High rate of malunion and non union in displaced fracture clavicle treated conservatively lead to use of different types of internal fixation methods which also were found to be associated with various complications. Moreover their superiority over conservative treatment has not been established. This study was designed to compare clinical outcome(More)
BACKGROUND Cubitus varus is the most common delayed complication of pediatric supracondylar humerus fractures. We developed a new technique, the triple modified French osteotomy, that we believe may be the answer to this common but yet unsolved deformity. MATERIALS AND METHODS Ten patients aged between 6 and 12 years with post-traumatic cubitus varus(More)
PURPOSE Both cannulated cancellous screw (CCS) and sliding hip screw (SHS) are used in femoral neck fracture fixations, but which is superior is yet to be determined. This study was aimed to compare the clinicoradiological outcome of femoral neck fracture treated with SHS or CCS in young adults. METHODS Adults (16e60 years) with femoral neck fracture were(More)
