Osteosarcoma is a rare malignant bone tumor most commonly occurring in children and young adults presenting with painful swelling. Various etiological factors for osteosarcoma are ionizing radiation, family history of bone disorders and cancer, chemicals (fluoride, beryllium, and vinyl chloride), and viruses. Status of fluoride levels in serum of(More)
Bipartite patella is usually asymptomatic. Painful bipartite patella is either non-surgically managed by immobilization, anti-inflammatory drugs and physical therapy or treated by excision. We report a case in whom locally injected bupivacaine and steroid (methylprednisolone acetate) injection relieved the symptoms completely in a case of bilateral painful(More)
A rare case of a 54-year-old man with pycnodysostosis having subtrochanteric fracture of right femur is being reported. This patient had this fracture after a trivial fall while walking. He had typical facial features, short stature, open fontenella, short stubby hands, high arched furrowed palate and radiological features including open cranial sutures,(More)
INTRODUCTION Benign lytic lesions of bone encompass a group of neoplastic or developmental disorders of human skeleton. They may involve different sites with varied clinical presentation and pattern of aggressiveness for which the treatment strategy needs to be tailored accordingly. Planning a treatment protocol for a lytic lesion in the femoral neck is a(More)
BACKGROUND Management of distal tibial tumours with limb salvage surgery poses a challenge for the orthopaedic surgeon. This study was done to evaluate the results of fibular centralisation as a technique to reconstruct defects that occurred after resection at this site. MATERIALS AND METHODS Nine patients with a mean age of 23.2 years (range 17-34) with(More)
To retrospectively study the long term results of high tibial valgus osteotomy in management of primary medial compartment osteoarthritis, with special reference to patient satisfaction and functional assessment, we conducted this study in radiologically established 50 knees of patients with primary osteoarthrosis of knee. In these patients with medial(More)
Expansive laminoplasty, a procedure used more and more often for cervical myelopathy, was carried out in patients with lumbar spinal stenosis in the Department of Orthopaedics, Paraplegia, Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation of our institute. Twenty-five such clinico-radiologically proven cases were operated upon. For radiological evaluation, computed(More)
Osteosarcoma is the most common primary osseous malignancy excluding malignant neoplasms of marrow origin (myeloma, lymphoma and leukemia) and accounts for approximately 20% of bone cancers. It predominantly affects patients younger than 20 years and mainly occurs in the long bones of the extremities, the most common being the metaphyseal area around the(More)
The authors report a case of intra-abdominal migration of a Kirschner wire from the left hip to the right lobe of the liver in a 5-year-old child. The wire was used for stabilization of the left hip after open reduction for neglected unreduced congenital dislocation of the left hip. The migrated wire was removed by laparotomy. Surprisingly, no injury was(More)
Thirty patients (34 limbs) with compressive peroneal neuropathy induced by prolonged squatting of more than 5 h during harvesting season were treated conservatively and followed-up to an average of 28.2 months. A marked preponderance of involvement of the left side was noticed. We attribute this to the intermittent extension of the right lower limb(More)
