To describe the imaging and histopathology of pseudomyogenic hemangioendothelioma. Five cases of pseudomyogenic hemangioendothelioma, which presented over the last 5 years, were retrieved from the files of the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital. The imaging and histopathology were reviewed in all cases. Magnetic resonance imaging, which was available from(More)
PURPOSE We developed a computer generated model of the prostate gland and an interactive simulator for use in training urologists in transurethral resection of the prostate. MATERIALS AND METHODS Software was developed on a standard personal computer which allowed images of the lumen of the prostatic urethra and resectoscope loop to be generated and(More)
Primary neoplastic vascular lesions of bone are rare, and include haemangiomas, haemangioendothelioma, epithelioid haemangioendothelioma and angiosarcoma. These lesions may be multicentric, and when they involve bone are typically intraosseous and lytic. Radiological findings are not always specific. We report a case of haemangioendothelioma localised to(More)
The safety of treating low-grade chondral tumours by primary surgery without a pre- operative diagnostic needle biopsy was assessed by looking at the concordance between radiological and histological diagnoses. A retrospective review of the departmental histopathology registry from 2005 to 2009 was performed to identify cases of intramedullary chondral(More)
Chondromalacia patella is a distinct clinical entity of abnormal softening of the articular cartilage of the patella, which results in chronic retropatellar pain. Its aetiology is still unclear but the process is thought to be a due to trauma to superficial chondrocytes resulting in a proteolytic enzymic breakdown of the matrix. Our aim was to assess the(More)
Modern orthopaedic trauma practice involves increased exposure of the surgeon to ionising radiation. However, there have been no studies to investigate whether the doses received are within limits for non-classified workers. In this study, whole body, eye and extremity, namely hand, doses were measured in six orthopaedic surgeons during trauma cases(More)
This prospective six-year longitudinal study reviews the clinical outcome of patients undergoing autologous chondrocyte implantation (ACI) and a porcine type I/III collagen membrane cover for deep chondral defects of the knee. We present 57 patients (31 male, 26 female) with a mean age of 31.6 years (range 15–51 years) that have undergone ACI since July(More)
The hazards of exposure to ionising radiation are well documented. Fears have been raised that occupational exposure to ionising radiation by orthopaedic surgeons may have detrimental effects on the future health of their unborn offspring. The current members of the British Orthopaedic Trainees' Association and orthopaedic consultants appointed during the(More)
BACKGROUND Autologous chondrocyte implantation (ACI) has been shown to have favorable results in the treatment of symptomatic chondral and osteochondral lesions. However, there are few reports on the outcomes of this technique in adolescents. PURPOSE The aim of this study was to assess pain relief and functional outcome in adolescents undergoing ACI. (More)
