OBJECTIVES To determine the incidence of complications of external fixation in pelvic ring injuries, comparing fixator use for temporary and definitive treatment. DESIGN Retrospective case-note review. SETTING A regional centre for pelvic trauma in the UK. PATIENTS 100 consecutive patients. INTERVENTION All patients were treated with pelvic external(More)
The results of 100 'Long Gamma Nails' (LGN) inserted in 97 patients, for the treatment of complex proximal femoral fractures and pathological lesions, are reported. The mean patient age was 74 (16-98). Seven significant complications occurred; four lag screws cut out, one broken nail, one infected non-union and one peri-prosthetic fracture. Five patients(More)
Surgeons remain concerned that ceramic hip prostheses may fail catastrophically if either the head or the liner is fractured. We report two patients, each with a ceramic-on-ceramic total hip replacement who sustained high-energy trauma sufficient to cause a displaced periprosthetic acetabular fracture in whom the ceramic bearings survived intact.(More)
A retrospective review was performed of Vancouver type C periprosthetic femoral fractures treated using the Less Invasive Stabilisation System (LISS) femoral locking plate system. Five patients with stable hip prostheses (only one of which was an uncomplicated primary arthroplasty) were treated with the LISS plating system in combination with bone grafting(More)
Traumatic disruption of the pelvic ring caused by high-energy impact is associated with significant mortality and morbidity. A variety of fixation techniques have been developed for treating these injuries with the main aims of restoring the stability of the pelvic ring and promoting recovery of normal function. The stability of fixation of these techniques(More)
Pelvic and acetabular injury may occur in isolation, or, in two-thirds of cases be associated with other significant injuries to the skeleton or other body systems. Most unstable pelvic and acetabular injuries require specialist surgical treatment which often means transfer to a specialist centre. The associated injuries also require assessment and(More)
OBJECTIVES To assess the pattern of injuries presenting to a racing circuit medical centre in two three-year periods before and after two chicanes were built into the track. METHODS Medical centre records were used to identify all patients assessed during the two time periods. Those referred to hospital were categorised by injury severity into three(More)
