We studied the influence of soft-tissue releases and soft-tissue balance on the outcome of 526 total knee replacements one year after operation. The surgery had been performed by seven surgeons in five centres in the United Kingdom between October 1999 and December 2002. Balancing was carried out by five surgeons using spacers and trials and by two surgeons(More)
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)
We prospectively assessed the efficacy of a ceramic-on-metal (CoM) hip bearing with uncemented acetabular and femoral components in which cobalt-chrome acetabular liners and alumina ceramic heads were used. The cohort comprised 94 total hip replacements (THRs) in 83 patients (38 women and 45 men) with a mean age of 58 years (42 to 70). Minimum follow-up was(More)
Early external fixation of major pelvic fractures reduces haemorrhage and mortality. The best site and method for pin placement remains unresolved. The superior iliac crest is biomechanically disadvantageous and hinders access to the abdomen. Low pin placement between the anterior iliac spines has been proposed as a better solution. A case-controlled study(More)
Myopericytoma is a recently described, rare, soft-tissue tumour with perivascular differentiation of myoid cells. We present a case of myopericytoma occurring around the ankle in a 68-year old man. The patient presented with a history of a lump around the ankle of 4 years’ duration. Clinical presentation, radiological features and histopathologic findings(More)
AIM To describe the appearances and determine the prevalence of the meniscofibular ligament (ligamentum fibulare-MFibL) on MRI of the knee. SUBJECTS AND METHODS Retrospective observational review of 160 knee MRI studies (152 patients) which was performed for a variety of clinical presentations over a period of 31 months. The images were assessed(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)
