Purpose: Minimally invasive plate osteosynthesis (MIPO) is used for the treatment of distal tibial fractures, especially in cases of intra-articular fractures. There are many advantages of MIPO, including preservation of blood supply to the fracture site and enhanced bone healing, however, it is not without complication. The study aimed to elaborat...

Trauma to the knee joint is associated with significant cartilage degeneration and erosion of subchondral bone, which eventually leads to osteoarthritis (OA), resulting in substantial morbidity and healthcare burden. With no disease‐modifying drugs in clinics, the current standard of care focuses on symptomatic relief and viscosupplementation. Modu...

Introduction: Neglected knee dislocations are a rare entity. They present with gross degenerative changes and ligament laxity. There is no defined protocol for the treatment of arthritic knees in neglected knee dislocations. Case Report: A 54-year-old male presented with pain and limp over his left knee after sustaining a knee dislocation 25 years...

Background: Success of total knee arthroplasty (TKA) depends on lower limb alignment and soft tissue balancing. It is unusual to have higher degrees of genu varus deformity in the western countries unlike the Indian subcontinent. Here, we describe a method involving multiple puncturing of medial collateral ligament of the knee in patients with more...

Introduction: Neglected patellar tendon ruptures are uncommon. They are challenging due to the proximal migration of patella and soft-tissue contractures. They are usually managed with autografts or allografts with or without synthetic augmentation, and fixation is done using metallic implants. Case Report: A 59-year-old farmer presented with an i...

Introduction: In chronic renal failure, plasma 1,25-hydroxyvitamin D levels decrease due to the disturbance of the hydroxylation of 25-hydroxyvitamin D in the kidney, which results in decreased calcium absorption from the intestine. This induces hypocalcemia, which increases the secretion of parathyroid hormone. Parathyroid hormone can stimulate b...

The purpose of this study was to demonstrate the reduced chances of iatrogenic femoral neck fracture while removing the Richard's screw using the dynamic hip screw–femur head conjoint removal technique. This retrospective cohort study analyzed 16 hips operated on with total hip arthroplasty from March 2010 to February 2015. All cases were previousl...

Abstract Context: Coplanar test measures intraoperative value of combined anteversion of femoral and acetabular components . Aim: Purpose of this study was to investigate factors affecting demonstration of Coplanar test when the combined anteversion (CA) was be kept within the safe zone in uncemented total hip arthroplasty (THA) in posterior approa...

Introduction Antiretroviral drugs are known to cause osteoporosis making the bones susceptible to fracture. Osteoporotic fractures are majorly seen in the vertebral bodies. Pathological fractures need to be fixed without much delay to start mobilization of the patients. Case Report The present case describes a 72-year-old male who was diagnosed to...

Introduction Posterior hip dislocation of the hip with acetabular fracture is a challenging problem to treat. Such dislocations are associated with avascular necrosis of the femoral head if neglected. Managing such conditions with total hip replacement (THR) is very difficult because of associated altered anatomy. Case Presentation We hereby repor...

Introduction: An isolated coronal fracture of either or both femoral condyles is a rare entity and is usually associated with high-energy injury trauma. Such fractures should be meticulously fixed for a good functional outcome as they involve the articular surface of a weight bearing joint. A modified swashbuckler approach provides adequate exposu...

Neglected fracture neck femur have been considered a challenging problem to treat, more so in young patients where head salvage procedures are essential. Head salvage procedures like valgus osteotomy, non-vascularised bone grafting, muscle pedicle bone grafting and vascularised bone grafting have been mentioned in the literature. To the best of our...

Background: Uncemented Total Hip Replacement (THR) is at present an accepted treatment in patients with severe deformity of the hip caused by advanced ankylosing spondylitis. Materials and methods: We studied 20 patients, 2 female and 18 male, who had 29 THRs, all through a posterior approach. The patient's age at index surgery ranged from 20 to...
