Correct positioning and alignment of components during primary total knee replacement (TKR) is widely accepted to be an important predictor of patient satisfaction and implant durability. This retrospective study reports the effect of the post-operative mechanical axis of the lower limb in the coronal plane on implant survival following primary TKR. A total(More)
Although mechanisms of modern military wounding may be distinct from those of ancient conflicts, the infectious sequelae of ballistic trauma and the evolving microbial flora of war wounds remain a considerable burden on both the injured combatant and their deployed medical systems. Battlefield surgeons of ancient times favoured suppuration in war wounding(More)
The aim of this study was to assess the accuracy of placement of pelvic binders and to determine whether circumferential compression at the level of the greater trochanters is the best method of reducing a symphyseal diastasis. Patients were identified by a retrospective review of all pelvic radiographs performed at a military hospital over a period of 30(More)
The material properties of ligaments are not well characterized at rates of deformation that occur during high-speed injuries. The aim of this study was to measure the material properties of lateral collateral ligament of the porcine stifle joint in a uniaxial tension model through strain rates in the range from 0.01 to 100/s. Failure strain, tensile(More)
OBJECTIVE To describe spinal fracture patterns presenting to deployed medical facilities during recent military operations. METHODS Retrospective analysis of the United Kingdom Centre for Defence Imaging Computed Tomography database, 2005-2009. Fractures are classified, mechanism noted and associated injuries recorded. Statistical analysis is by Fisher's(More)
Low-energy fractures of the proximal humerus indicate osteoporosis and it is important to direct treatment to this group of patients who are at high risk of further fracture. Data were prospectively collected from 79 patients (11 men, 68 women) with a mean age of 69 years (55 to 86) with fractures of the proximal humerus in order to determine if current(More)
Current military conflicts are characterized by the use of the improvised explosive device. Improvements in personal protection, medical care, and evacuation logistics have resulted in increasing numbers of casualties surviving with complex musculoskeletal injuries, often leading to life-long disability. Thus, there exists an urgent requirement to(More)
Pain following total knee replacement (TKR) is a common problem and cause of poor satisfaction amongst patients. We report on a glomus tumour causing pain on the anterolateral aspect of the knee, 2 years after an otherwise successful total knee replacement for osteoarthritis. The tumour was treated by excision biopsy under general anaesthesia and the(More)
We report the use of Negative Pressure Wound Therapy (NPWT) in a 39 year old patient with a complex open hind foot injury. The patient sustained an open calcaneal fracture with extensive soft tissue damage following the detonation of an explosively formed penetrating round in a confined space. A remarkable recovery was made following surgical debridement,(More)
OBJECTIVES The role of Evidence Based Medicine in clinical care is to provide a framework for the integration of expertise, current evidence and the needs of the individual patient. Research presented at scientific meetings is an important source of such evidence, informing clinical decision making both on military operations and in home nation health care(More)
