Numerous variations of intramedullary nails have been devised to achieve a stable fixation and early mobilisation of pertrochanteric fracture, among which is the proximal femoral nail (PFN). We report here the results of a prospective study carried out at our institute on 100 consecutive patients who had suffered a pertrochanteric, intertrochanteric or high(More)
We have treated all varieties of fractures of the tibial plateau, including lateral, medial and bicondylar fractures by skeletal traction and early mobilisation. A study of 50 such fractures is presented and the functional results are evaluated. The average follow up is 2 years. The results of skeletal traction and early mobilsation are shown to be good in(More)
BACKGROUND We evaluated a series of diaphyseal fractures of the tibia using low-cost, Indian-made modified Kuntscher nail (Daga nail) with the provision of distal locking screw for the management of the tibial diaphyseal fractures. MATERIALS AND METHODS One hundred and fifty one consecutive patients with diaphyseal fractures of tibia with 151 fractures(More)
BACKGROUND The failure of the conventional nailing of both forearm bones or isolated fractures of radius and ulna pose a potential problem of nail migration and rotational instability, despite the best reduction. The purpose of this paper is to evaluate the results of screw elastic intramedullary nail for the treatment of adult diaphyseal fractures of both(More)
PURPOSE To review outcomes of 100 patients who underwent short proximal femoral nailing for stable and unstable intertrochanteric fractures. METHODS Records of 62 men and 38 women aged 56 to 83 (mean, 67) years who underwent short proximal femoral nailing for stable peritrochanteric A1 (n=36), unstable peritrochanteric A2 (n=40), and unstable(More)
The debate continues over the management of diaphyseal fractures of the humerus. We treated 200 patients of shaft humerus fractures of various fracture patterns by closed multiple elastic Rush nails with promising results. From January 2000 to January 2006 we treated 200 patients with stable and unstable humeral fractures with multiple Rush nails. The mean(More)
Five patients with macrodactyly are described. The foot was affected in 3 of them and the hand in 2. Two patients were operated on and the histological features are described. The literature is fully reviewed and the aetiology is discussed. Description de cinq sujets porteurs d'une macrodactylie. Elle atteignait trois fois le pied et deux fois la main. Deux(More)
INTRODUCTION Biomechanically proximal femoral nail (PFN) is a better choice of implant, still it is associated with screw breakage, cut out of screw through femoral head, Z effect, reverse Z effect, and lateral migration of screws. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the results of augmented PFN in terms of prevention of postoperative complications and(More)
