The role of total knee arthroplasty (TKA) in acute tibial fractures with existing comminution/bone loss, osteoporosis or preexistent arthritis has been described in the literature. Many of these procedures necessitate the use of stems to off-load the component and augments/wedges to avoid overresection and hence restore the joint line. Conventional methods(More)
Total knee arthroplasty (TKA) is a challenging procedure in patients with a high body mass index (BMI). The aim of our study was to assess the outcome and accuracy of restoration of mechanical alignment in TKA using patient-specific guides (PSG) involving patients with high BMI. Patients with BMI of 30 or above were enrolled in the study. The mean age of(More)
PURPOSE To compare outcomes of 3 fixation modalities for scaphoid non-union. METHODS 27 men and 6 women aged 20 to 48 (mean, 28) years with non-union of the scaphoid involving the proximal pole (n=13), waist (n=12), and distal pole (n=8) were randomised to undergo the Herbert screw fixation (n=11), the Matti Russe bone grafting (n=9), or the Kohlman(More)
BACKGROUND Rubber band syndrome is a rare condition seen in younger children in communities where rubber bands are worn around the wrist for decorative purposes. When the band is worn for a long duration, it burrows through the skin and soft tissues resulting in distal edema, loss of function, and even damage to the neurovascular structures. Recognition of(More)
Simultaneous bilateral presentation of psoas abscess with prosthetic joint involvement is extremely rare. A 68-year-old woman presented to us with bilateral dull aching groin pain of 6 months' duration, which flared up in the past month, associated with pyrexial symptoms. She had undergone bilateral hip replacements in the past with uneventful recovery. MRI(More)
Over the years, management of complex distal radius fractures by closed means has often failed leading to late collapse. We have chosen the principle of ligamentotaxis using external fixation and bone grafting in this study to prevent late complications. Eighty one patients with complex distal radius fractures belonging to Type IV A, IV B, IV C of Universal(More)
INTRODUCTION A discoid medial meniscus is a rare pathology of the knee joint, and is even rarer when it presents bilaterally with clinical symptoms. CASE PRESENTATION We present the case of a 38-year-old female with symptomatic bilateral discoid medial meniscus. Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) showed complete discoid meniscus in one knee and incomplete,(More)
There exist limited options for treatment of patients with combined medial compartment arthritis and anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) deficiency. Ideal treatment is one that offers lasting relief of symptoms not compromising any future surgery. Unicompartmental knee replacement has shown consistently good results in the relatively young and active(More)
BACKGROUND Periprosthetic joint infection (PJI) continues to be one of the leading causes of failure following hip and knee surgery. The diagnostic workflow of PJI includes detailed clinical examination, serum markers, imaging and aspiration/biopsy of the affected joint. The goals of treatment are eradication of the infection, alleviation of pain, and(More)
