Weight bearing Xray for ankle fractures to differentiate between stable and unstable fracture
Article
Full-text available
Category Ankle, Trauma Introduction/Purpose Intramedullary fixation of the fibula has been proposed as a minimally invasive alternative to traditional plate fixation in fractures of around the ankle. Previous studies have demonstrated a low complication rate, particularly when both distal locking and trans-syndesmotic screws are used. More recentl...
Article
In this cohort study, we present comprehensive injury specific and surgical outcome data from one of the largest reported series of pilon fractures of the distal tibia treated in a UK tertiary referral centre. A series of 68 closed pilon fractures were retrospectively reviewed from case notes, plain radiographs and computed tomography imaging. Pati...

Purpose: To estimate the prevalence of insomnia in patients with chronic back pain, and to correlate insomnia with severity of back pain and disability. Methods: 63 women and 57 men aged 24 to 83 (mean, 55) years who presented with chronic back pain for >6 months were asked to complete a self-administered questionnaire to evaluate the Insomnia S...
Article
This study reviewed patients undergoing correction of cavus foot deformity by metatarsal extension osteotomy with preservation of the plantar aponeurosis, and assessed the correction achieved of the claw deformity of the toe by radiographic assessment. 15 patients (18 feet) were reviewed clinically and radiographically. All feet required extension...

Single-center retrospective study. The purpose of this study was to examine the relationship between obesity (body mass index [BMI] >30) and the incidence of perioperative complications, outcome of surgery, and return to work in a cohort of patients undergoing elective less invasive posterior lumbar interbody fusion (LI-PLIF) of the lumbar spine fo...
Article
Tibial pilon injuries are a complex group of fractures, whose classification and radiological assessment has been under constant reform. Till date, there is no universally accepted classification system. To determine the interobserver agreement and intraobserver reproducibility of Ruedi and Allgower, AO, and Topliss et al. classification systems fo...
Article
It was hypothesized that preserving a layer of gliding tissue, the parietal layer of the ulnar bursa, between the contents of the carpal tunnel and the soft tissues incised during carpal tunnel surgery might reduce scar pain and improve grip strength and function following open carpal tunnel decompression. Patients consented to randomization to tre...
Article
This study investigated whether the outcome of bone graft and internal fixation surgery for nonunion of scaphoid fractures could be predicted by gadolinium-enhanced MR assessments of proximal fragment vascularity. Sixteen established scaphoid fracture nonunions underwent gadolinium-enhanced MR scanning before surgical treatment with bone grafting a...
Article
The use of a reamed intramedullary nail allows the immediate correction and stabilisation of deformity in diaphysis of the femur. Passing a guide wire after a femoral diaphyseal osteotomy can prove to be difficult, particularly if the medullary canal has been narrowed or obliterated by bone re-modelling after fracture repair. We present a technique...
Article
Full-text available
Orthopaedic surgeons treat a variety of conditions, but it is difficult to know which ones should be afforded priority over others. The SF-12 health status questionnaire has been proven to be indicative of the severity of disease and its effect on patient quality of life. We assessed the SF-12 scores of 253 patients attending for pre-operative asse...
Article
Papers p 832 The headline news from the NHS has made grim reading this year: funding crises, shortages of beds, and crimes. The public is increasingly aware of our unenviable record of morbidity and mortality from cardiovascular diseases and cancer, and constructive criticism has been replaced by the destructive soundbite. The perception is of an...
