Introduction: Fractures involving the neck of the femur constitute a small proportion of total fractures in the body. Though these fractures mainly occur in the elderly population, their occurrence in youngsters due to high-velocity trauma is not uncommon. These fractures are commonly termed the ‘unsolved fractures’ as the outcome of these fracture...

Introduction: Enchondroma is a solitary, benign, intramedullary cartilaginous tumor commonly noticed in the phalanges of hands and feet with characteristic radiological features. Its occurrence in aberrant sites with atypical features lead to diagnostic dilemma. Enchondromas which are usually managed non-operatively can mimic other benign and mali...

Study objectiveDue to the rarity of the Andersson lesion (AL), the literature is ambiguous regarding the type of surgical fixation, need for debridement and deformity correction. The purpose of this retrospective study is to evaluate the efficacy, feasibility and functional outcome of posterior fixation in AL.Materials and methodsThis study include...

Synovial sarcomas are deep-seated, genetically distinct, malignant neoplasms seen in young adults, with a male preponderance. They have unusual clinical and pathological presentation and mimic many other sarcomas and carcinomas, making the diagnosis quite challenging. Although four variants are identified, occurrence in the hand is extremely rare a...

Shoulder dislocations, when they occur, are usually unilateral. Conditions such as epilepsy, electrocution or trauma may present with bilateral dislocations but these are majorly posterior. Hence anterior dilocations when they present with bilaterality are due to simultaneous impact on either sides during trauma and are usually associated with frac...

Background Degenerative spondylolisthesis is a common spinal pathology. Traditionally, spinal fusion is an accepted standard surgical treatment for listhesis. But fusion is a major intervention with its known pitfalls. With technological progression, minimally invasive spinal fusion (MISF) procedures are becoming mainstream. Percutaneous trans-fora...

Introduction: The purpose of this study was to obtain computed tomography (CT) based measurements of femoral dimensions in adults, to identify its relevance with intramedullary nails used in the management of proximal femur fractures and to suggest a best fitting implant dimensions to our population. To best of our knowledge our study would be fir...

Study Design Retrospective observational study. Objectives Thoracic disc prolapse (TDP) surgeries have reported complications ranging from paraplegia to approach related complications. This study is to present a series of TDP patients surgically treated with transforaminal thoracic interbody fusion (TTIF). Emphasis on surgical technique and strate...

Angioleiomyoma is a benign tumour composed of smooth muscle and vascular tissue. Because of the paucity of smooth muscles in the hand other than tunica media of the blood vessels, its occurrence is quite rare in the hand and only few cases are reported in the English literature. We present the case of a 49-year-old man with benign painless swelling...
