Risk factors for dislocation during the first 3 months after primary total hip replacement.
The prevalence of dislocation of a total hip replacement during the first 3 postoperative months was determined for a series of 315 patients who underwent a unilateral primary total hip operation.…
Treatment of radiocarpal degenerative osteoarthritis by radioscapholunate arthrodesis and distal scaphoidectomy.

Patients who require an RSL arthrodesis for the treatment of severe localized radiocarpal DJD appear to have less pain and to retain more flexion and radial deviation if the distal scaphoid is excised concomitantly.
Outcome of total hip arthroplasty in small-proportioned patients.
The miniature AML/CDH femoral component, combined with an uncemented acetabular cup, provides a promising, off-the-shelf alternative in small-proportioned patients with small femoral dimensions.
Preliminary Results of Total Wrist Arthroplasty Using the RWS Prosthesis
Twenty-nine wrist prostheses were implanted and followed-up for a mean of 4 years and the management of the distal ulna during this procedure and the long-term fixation of the carpal component were problematic.
Total modular wrist prosthesis: a new design
An uncemented and cemented radial component, secure fixation in three metacarpal bones, and an unconstrained and constrained version account for the modularity, including optional treatment of the distal radioulnar joint.
Radiographic Changes after Resection of the Distal Ulna in Rheumatoid Arthritis
A retrospective radiographic analysis demonstrates similar increases in ulnar translocation and ulnar-carpal distances in both groups after resection of the distal ulna in rheumatoid arthritis.
Surgery versus cast immobilisation for adults with a bicortical fracture of the scaphoid waist (SWIFFT): a pragmatic, multicentre, open-label, randomised superiority trial
The SWIFFT trial compared the clinical effectiveness of surgical fixation with cast immobilisation and early fixation of fractures that fail to unite in adults with scaphoid waist fractures displaced by 2 mm or less.
TWO CASES OF ACUTE CARPAL TUNNEL SYNDROME IN CLASSIC HAEMOPHILIA
A combination of conservative and surgical treatment remains acceptable in the early phase of this syndrome and a decompressed carpal tunnel is successfully decompressed in both cases.

This work describes a technique which is still commonly used in Europe but less frequently in the UK, which involves the use of simples Kirschner wires and cement to create a stable construct across the infected joint.
