Introduction Knife crime remains an area of public health concern. In order to tackle this problem and reduce its burden, the epidemiology of penetrating knife injuries needs to be understood. The aim of this study is to analyse the pattern of knife injuries at a major trauma centre (MTC) in London. Methods An analysis of cases from the prospectiv...

Introduction: Tibial shaft fractures are common fractures seen in Trauma and Orthopedics practice today. Majority of these fractures are treated with intramedullary nailing (IMN) which is rapidly becoming a gold standard. The procedure itself is performed by either a suprapatellar approach or an infrapatellar approach. Suprapatellar approach is gai...

Introduction Chronic exertional compartment syndrome (CECS) presents with pain during exercise, most commonly within the anterior compartment of the lower limb. A diagnosis is classically made from a typical history and the measurement of intramuscular compartmental pressure (IMCP) testing. Improved, more specific diagnostic criteria for IMCP testi...
Article
Background Chondral delamination with intact articular surface is an under-recognised entity with no previous reports on how it should be managed. The purpose of this article is to increase awareness of this entity and make recommendations for its management. Methods We present a small case series of three patients who presented with knee pain and...

Aims Fractures of the distal femur can be challenging to manage and are on the increase in the elderly osteoporotic population. Management with casting or bracing can unacceptably limit a patient’s ability to bear weight, but historically, operative fixation has been associated with a high rate of re-operation. In this study, we describe the outcom...

Renal replacement therapy comprises peritoneal dialysis, haemodialysis and renal transplantation. Patients undergoing renal replacement therapy often require surgery for a number of different reasons. This review summarizes likely surgical procedures for these patients and some of the common complications.
Article
Wound infection is a key determinant of outcome in survivors of armed conflict. One factor having potential for promoting healing, decreasing bacterial burden and influencing prognosis is the dressing that covers the ballistic-injured extremity. Although antiseptic and silver dressings are applied to acute wounds, evidence to support their use is s...

The types of explosive devices used in warfare and the pattern of war wounds have changed in recent years. There has, for instance, been a considerable increase in high amputation of the lower limb and unsalvageable leg injuries combined with pelvic trauma. The conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan prompted the Department of Military Surgery and Trauma...

Morton's neuroma is a mechanically induced degenerative neuropathy. We compared clinical and MRI findings in 76 feet treated operatively for Morton's neuroma and 40 feet with different pathologies (controls). In the 'treatment group' web space tenderness (WST) was positive in 95%, foot squeeze (SQU) in 88%, plantar percussion (PLP) in 61%, and toe...
Article
In the late 18th Century wound debridement consisted of incision of skin and deep fascia to release the swelling associated with ballistic injury, however extremity war wounds were more usually managed non-operatively or by amputation. During the First World War debridement was redefined to include excision of all non-viable and foreign material. I...
Article
A joint meeting of the Limb Trauma and Wounds Working Groups resulted in the establishment of 29 consensus recommendations for the conduct of initial extremity war wound debridement. Pre-operative, operative and post-operative phases of debridement were considered along with wound irrigation and dressings. Wounds where a different surgical approach...
Article
The Orthopaedic Competence Assessment Project (OCAP) is a validated system for assessment of competence in orthopaedics. OCAP materials are increasingly used in the NHS. Defence Orthopaedic trainees now deploy for 6 weeks on Operation Herrick.The senior author used OCAP induction and assessment materials with the 3 three trainees assigned to him at...

High energy fractures of the pelvis are a challenging problem both in the immediate post-injury phase and later when definitive fixation is undertaken. No single management algorithm can be applied because of associated injuries and the wide variety of trauma systems that have evolved around the world. Initial management is aimed at saving life and...

Popliteal artery entrapment syndrome is a well recognised sequelae of anatomical variation in the origin of the medial head of gastrocnemius. It classically presents with distal ischaemia from progressive intimal fibrosis and eventual thrombosis. We present a unique case of acute lower limb ischaemia precipitated by trauma in a young man with undia...
