Aims The primary aim of this study was to determine the rates of return to work (RTW) and sport (RTS) following a humeral shaft fracture. The secondary aim was to identify factors independently associated with failure to RTW or RTS. Methods From 2008 to 2017, all patients with a humeral diaphyseal fracture were retrospectively identified. Patient...
Article
Objectives: The primary aim was to assess patient-reported outcomes ≥1yr following a humeral diaphyseal fracture. The secondary aim was to compare outcomes of patients who united after initial management (operative/non-operative) with those who united after nonunion fixation (NU-ORIF). Design: Retrospective. Setting: University teaching hospit...
Chapter
The term ‘floating knee’ was first coined by Blake and McBryde in 1975 [1] to describe an ipsilateral fracture of the femur and tibia. These injuries are generally high energy in nature and include extra- and intra-articular fracture patterns. We describe the epidemiology, classification, treatment and outcomes for this diverse group of injuries.

The enzymatic generation of carbon-halogen bonds is a powerful strategy used by both nature and synthetic chemists to tune the bioactivity, bioavailability and reactivity of compounds, opening up the opportunity for selective C-H functionalisation. Genes encoding halogenase enzymes have recently been shown to transcend all kingdoms of life. These e...
Article
Objectives: To document union rate, complications and patient-reported outcomes after open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF), with and without bone grafting (BG), for humeral diaphyseal nonunion after failed nonoperative management. Design: Retrospective. Setting: University teaching hospital. Patients and intervention: From 2008 to 201...
Chapter
Edited and authored by leading international experts, Distal Radius Fractures: Evidence-Based Management provides a state-of-the-art overview of diagnosis and management based on today’s best practices. Each chapter focuses on one key issue, offering a challenging case and then questioning the reader in an engaging fashion to provide the best avail...
Article
Background The primary aim was to identify patient and injury factors independently associated with humeral diaphyseal fracture nonunion after non-operative management. The secondary aim was to determine the effect of management (operative/non-operative) on nonunion. Methods From 2008-2017, 734 humeral shaft fractures (732 consecutive skeletally-m...
Article

We present an unusual ischial fracture unreported in the literature. We discuss the mechanism and describe the appropriate investigations and surgical management of this fracture. A 36-year-old man sustained a direct blow to his right buttock following a fall from a dirt bike. Examination revealed a firm haematoma, with severe pain on any stretch i...
Chapter
This chapter summarizes the seminal literature relating to factors that increase the risk of distal radius fracture instability and secondary displacement. The currently available evidence indicates that increasing age and the presence of dorsal comminution are strongly predictive of secondary displacement. Several other risk factors have also been...
Article
Over 5000 halogenated natural products have been reported so far, many of these arising from the marine environment. The introduction of a halogen into a molecule can significantly impact its bioavailability and bioactivity. More recently enzymatic halogenation has been used to enable late stage functionalisation through site-selective halogenation...
Article
Aims: The aim of this study was to determine the current incidence and epidemiology of humeral diaphyseal fractures. The secondary aim was to explore variation in patient and injury characteristics by fracture location within the humeral diaphysis. Methods: Over ten years (2008 to 2017), all adult patients (aged ≥ 16 years) sustaining an acute fr...
Article
Full-text available
Background: Humeral shaft fractures constitute around 1% of adult fractures in the UK, with an annual incidence of approximately 13 per 100,000 population. Historically, these injuries have been primarily managed non-operatively, with operative fixation reserved for specific indications. Although some recent retrospective studies have suggested the...

Early percutaneous screw fixation is increasingly used to manage acute scaphoid fractures as it provides a quicker return to work and sports, but little is known about the long-term subjective outcomes following surgery. The aim of this study was to report the long-term outcomes and complication rates following early percutaneous fixation of acute...

Hypothesis: Early percutaneous screw fixation is increasingly used to manage acute scaphoid fractures as it provides a quicker return to work and sports, but little is known about the long-term subjective outcomes following surgery.

Olecranon fractures account for approximately 20% of fractures of the proximal part of the forearm1. Clinicians may consider nonoperative management for elderly low-demand patients2, whereas operative fixation is recommended for active patients with a displaced fracture. Tension-band wire (TBW) fixation is commonly employed for simple isolated stab...
Article
The aims of this study were to document our experience with acute forearm compartment syndrome and to determine the risk factors for the need for split-thickness skin-grafting and the development of complications after fasciotomy. We identified from our trauma database all patients who underwent fasciotomy for an acute forearm compartment syndrome...
