Melioidosis is an infection caused by a gram-negative bacilli, Pseudomonas pseudomallei. This organism can cause fatal infection in domestic animals and are probably transmitted to humans by soil contamination of skin abrasions, ingestion, and inhalation. Melioidosis is being increasingly diagnosed in Western countries in other than its endemic areas of(More)
During a four-year period, twenty-one patients were found to have melioidosis of the musculoskeletal system caused by Pseudomonas pseudomallei. The melioidotic patients were matched with thirty-nine patients who had a musculoskeletal infection due to some other organism, and the two groups were compared with regard to the presence of concurrent disease. The(More)
Several methods for the correction of cubitus varus have been described, but most reported series are small and show a high rate of complications. We report a six-year personal experience of 77 osteotomies by a new technique which provides rigid fixation and allows correction of both varus and rotation deformities. It also prevents lateral bulging at the(More)
We used ultrasonography in ten children with pulled elbow to compare measurements of the radiocapitellar distance (RCD) on the affected and the unaffected sides. Similar measurements were made in a group of ten age-matched normal children. The mean RCD in pronation of the affected and normal sides in the patients with pulled elbows was 7.2 mm +/- 0.7 and(More)

A new application of operative ultrasound to help assess the fracture alignment for closed reduction and passing the guide wire in closed femoral nailing is described. This method can be used instead of fluoroscopic monitoring in certain important steps which can markedly reduce the exposure time of fluoroscopic monitoring. Nine of ten cases were successful(More)
