Article
Full-text available
The relative risk of total knee arthroplasty (TKA), high tibial osteotomy (HTO), and medial unicompartment (UKA) replacement for medial compartment arthritis is presented. Risk is defined as the product of the probability of an event occurring and its consequence. To define consequence, 2 related scales of impact (1 systemic and 1 local) are sugges...

Full-text available
The advent of computer-assisted knee replacement surgery has focused interest on the alignment of the components. However, there is confusion at times between the alignment of the limb as a whole and that of the components. The interaction between them is discussed in this article. Alignment is expressed relative to some reference axis or plane and...
Article
Two complementary studies that seek to establish the relationship between the length and position of the trans-epicondylar axis (TEAL) of the distal femur and the position of the knee joint line were presented. A radiologic study of 50 patients having computerized axial tomography of the knee showed that there is a good correlation between TEAL and...
Article
Full-text available
A controlled study, comparing computer- and conventional jig-assisted total knee replacement in six cadavers is presented. In order to provide a quantitative assessment of the alignment of the replacements, a CT-based technique which measures seven parameters of alignment has been devised and used. In this a multi-slice CT machine scanned in 2.5 mm...

Full-text available
A technique for performing allograft-augmented revision total knee replacement (TKR) using computer assistance is described, on the basis of the results in 14 patients. Bone deficits were made up with impaction grafting. Femoral grafting was made possible by the construction of a retaining wall or dam which allowed pressurisation and retention of t...
Article
Patients with chronic low back pain present physicians with diagnostic and therapeutic problems. Physical treatments tend to have low success rates and it is postulated that this may be because low back pain can be a manifestation of abnormal illness behaviour. A structured prospective study determined the prevalence of somatization in a sample of...

Full-text available
We used dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DEXA) to measure the bone mineral content (BMC) of both tibiae in 13 patients who had been treated for a tibial fracture by rigid plate fixation. Within two weeks of plate removal the BMC was significantly greater in the bone that had been under the plate than at the same site in the control tibia. An unpla...
Article
It has been proposed that nontraumatic ischemic necrosis of bone (INB) is a result of lipid associated intraosseous thrombosis. A histological study of 15 patients with INB confirmed the presence of intravascular lipid and thrombosis in the vessels of the femoral head. A similar analysis of 11 patients with primary osteoarthritis (OA) showed simila...
Article
To describe the Domiciliary Rehabilitation and Support Program (whose principles are early surgery, rapid mobilisation, avoidance of sedation, and early discharge with physiotherapy and nursing support provided in the home) for elderly patients with proximal femoral fractures (PFF), and to compare its costs with those of a conventional approach to...
Article
Medical auditing based on individual diagnoses or specific therapies is well established. Auditing of all medical activity has an expanding role in quality assurance and research. In an attempt to overcome the limitations of existing auditing systems, a fundamentally different, flexible, high quality and easily accessible orthopaedic auditing syste...
Article
A prospective clinical study of 204 individuals with occupationally related upper limb or neck pain was initiated to determine the major symptom patterns, the physical findings, and changes in laboratory tests that are exhibited by these subjects. On the basis of this information it was possible to determine the proportion that was suffering from a...
Article
Walking ability was objectively assessed by measurements of endurance, oxygen consumption, and pulse rate response. Twenty-four control subjects and 38 patients with arthropathy of the hip or knee were asked to walk on a treadmill, initially at 1 km/hour, for four minutes. The speed was increased by 1 km/hour every four minutes, until the subjects...
Article
A systematic approach to low-back pain is presented that relies on the classification of patients according to their symptoms. Rational systems of physiotherapy are proposed for each group and incorporated into an algorithmn. One hundred forty-two patients with mechanical low-back pain have been treated, and their response has been assessed by mean...
Article
Full-text available
The rapid transit system for patients with fractures of the proximal femur consists of immediate internal fixation or replacement of the fractured bone under spinal anaesthesia, without any sedation. Patients are mobilised within hours of surgery and sent home as soon as they can walk. They are supervised at home by both an experienced physiotherap...
Article
Problem Oriented Summary, Audit, Discharge (POSAD) is presented as a system which permits auditing of in-patient admissions. It is prospective, comprehensive, simple to operate and generates an immediate discharge summary. it has replaced the conventional hospital discharge summary and therefore does not increase secretarial or medical workload. It...
Article
Full-text available
An experimental study performed in 16 mongrel dogs is presented, which shows that when venous stasis is combined with the local injection of non-esterified fatty acid an intense thrombosis results. This response is not produced by venous stasis alone, nor by the combination of venous stasis and triacylglycerol. Histologically it is quite different...
Article
Full-text available
Three patients who died after total hip replacement were subjected to a necropsy examination. The object of this was to determine whether there was any evidence of a relationship between fat emboli produced by the surgery and thrombotic complications. All three patients showed extensive fat embolisation in the lungs and antemortem thrombosis. In tw...
Article
Full-text available
A study of the natural history and aetiology of deep vein thrombosis in 499 patients after total hip replacement is presented. Deep vein thrombosis was diagnosed by scanning the leg for 125Iodine-labelled fibrinogen for a period of 14 to 18 days and by ascending phlebography. It has been shown that deep vein thrombosis occurs ater than in patients...
Article
Full-text available
A prospective randomised trial of surgical treatment for the displaced subcapital femoral fracture in patients of 70 years or more is presented. Two hundred and eighteen patients were randomly allocated into one of three treatment groups: manipulative reduction and internal fixation using Garden screws; Thompson hemiarthroplasty through a posterior...
Article
A simple technique for assessing inpatient resource requirements is presented. Using this technique the demands on various hospital services, made by different patient groups, can be compared. Two hundred admissions to an acute accident unit were analyzed and we found that domestic injuries made the greatest demands on nursing and institutional car...
Article
A retrospective survey of the records of 327 patients with multiple injuries ws carried out in order to establish the incidence of missed injuries and the reasons for diagnostic failures. Twelve per cent of the patients had an injury not diagnosed at the first examination. The most vulnerable group were motorcyclists in whom the incidence was 23%....
Article
A new radiological technique is presented in which serial axial radiographs of the patellofemoral joints are taken under conditions in which the muscles about the knee and hip are contracted in a manner similar to that during weight-bearing. A form of analysis has been developed whereby patellar rotation can be measured in two planes and femoral ro...
Article
Full-text available
The records of 107 patients with displaced subcaptial hip fractures treated by Thompson's femoral head replacements have been reviewed to determine the mortality and certain aspects of systemic morbidity. Comparison was made with a group, matched exactly for age and sex, in which intertrochanteric fractures were treated by nail-plate fixation. The...
Article
Injection 125I-glyceryl trioleate (0.5 mg/kg) into the right atrium of anaesthetized greyhounds caused the following changes: sequestration of fat in the right side of the heart; 95 per cent removal by the lungs in a single passage through the pulmonary circulation; subsequent release of fat into the systemic circulation; rapid overall turnover of...
Article
Glyceryl trioleate has been injected into greyhounds as a model of the fat embolism syndrome. Pulmonary vascular pressures, systemic arterial pressure and cardiac output were determined at regular intervals over an 8-hour period. It has been shown that glyceryl tioleate causes an increased pulmonary vascular resistance and a fall in cardiac output....
Article
The skin abrasion technique has been used to measure the inflammatory exudate levels of cefa.zolin and cephaloridine in patients undergoing elective surgery. These levels were compared with serum and wound concentrations. Inflammatory exudate concentrations of both antibiotics were almost identical to serum concentrations and considerably higher th...
Article
Authors' Synopsis: Exposure to mild degrees of lower body negative pressure (between atmospheric and 40 mm Hg below atmospheric) caused a transient reduction in hand blood flow. Greater reductions in lower body negative pressure (40 mm Hg or more below atmospheric) led to a more sustained reduction in hand blood flow. This sustained response to LBN...
