Chapter
Although also common in other contact sports, the likelihood of many injuries sustained in association with the popular sport of rugby may be accentuated by aggressive, or violent, play. An understanding of the incidence, causes, mechanisms, and severity of acute as well as overuse injuries associated with this sport is important in order to develo...
Article
AIM: To compare seven commercially available bone graft substitutes (BGS) in terms of these properties and without using any additional biological growth factors. METHODS: Porcine osteoprogenitor cells were loaded on seven commercially available BGS and allowed to proliferate for one week followed by osteogenic induction. Staining for live/dead ce...

The aim of this study was to investigate whether the application time of bone cement would have an effect on the cement-bone interface strength in two types of commercially available bone cements. CMW1 Radiopaque(®) (CMW1) and SmartSetHV(®) (SmartSet) were applied to bovine cancellous bone specimens at 2 and at 4 min. Specimens were loaded to failu...
Article
To examine the safety and efficacy of topical use of tranexamic acid (TA) in total knee arthroplasty (TKA). An electronic literature search of PubMed Medline; Ovid Medline; Embase; and the Cochrane Library was performed, identifying studies published in any language from 1966 to February 2013. The studies enrolled adults undergoing a primary TKA, w...

Hashim Z, Dahabreh Z, Bin Jemain MT, Williams HR. Bilateral Simultaneous Achilles Tendon Rupture in the Absence of Risk Factors. Foot Ankle Spec. 2011;4:175-178. (Original DOI: 10.1177/1938640010397657) The above article was submitted to Foot & Ankle Specialist with an incorrect version of the article. The correct, final, version of the article app...
Article
Unlabelled: The Achilles tendon is the most frequently ruptured tendon in the lower limb and comprises approximately 20% of all large tendon ruptures. Spontaneous rupture of the Achilles tendon is usually observed in healthy, active individuals in the third to fifth decades of life and is twice as common in males. It usually occurs following high-...

The parameter of health economics in the use of any contemporary medical module plays a dominant role in decision making. A prospective nonrandomised comparative study of the direct medical costs on the first attempt of treating aseptic nonunions of tibial fractures, with either autologous-iliac-crest-bone-graft (ICBG) or bone morphogenetic protein...
Article
A protocol of early intervention (flexible intramedullary nails, early hip spica, and external fixation) was started in 1999 and during a 3-year period there were 25 children who sustained a femoral shaft fracture (early intervention group). These were prospectively reviewed with a minimum follow up of 24 months (Range 24-35 months). A historical c...
Article
In the current climate of modernisation of the NHS, attention has been given to improving the efficiency and efficacy of the service provided across the different disciplines without an overspend of the allocated budget. Implementation of the cost-saving plans is also encouraged owing to the ever-increasing financial burden on the NHS, obviously wi...
Article
To compare the cost implications of treatment of persistent fracture non-unions before and after application of recombinant human bone morphogenetic protein-7 (BMP-7). Of 25 fracture non-unions, 9 were treated using BMP-7 alone and 16 using BMP-7 and bone grafting. These patients were prospectively followed up, and the costs incurred were analysed....
Article
We conducted a retrospective analysis of complex femoral and tibial non-unions treated with the Ili-zarov frame. Our aim was to assess the results of Ilizarov treatment in these patients with regards to time to union, functional outcome, number of days of hospital stay and cost of treatment. Thirty seven (36 patients) complex femoral and tibial non...
Article
Total ankle arthroplasty has become an increasingly performed procedure for the treatment of ankle arthritis. Failures related to polyethylene inserts can result from uncorrected deformities or malalignment of the components. We report a case of a 63-year-old man who underwent total ankle arthroplasty for osteoarthritis of the ankle. The talar comp...
Article
Recombinant human activated protein C (rhAPC) also known as drotrecogin alfa (activated) has known antithrombotic, anti-inflammatory, and profibrinolytic properties in severe sepsis. Treatment with rhAPC (Xigris) has been shown to reduce mortality in patients with severe sepsis. The lack of any trials of rhAPC in trauma patients means that a defini...
Article
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the efficacy and safety of recombinant bone morphogenetic protein 7 (rhBMP-7 or OP-1) as a bone-stimulating agent in the treatment of persistent fracture non-unions. Twenty-five consecutive patients [19 males, mean age 39.4 years (range: 18-79)] with 26 fracture non-unions were treated with rhBMP-7. There w...
Article
A radiologically proven post-traumatic intraosseous ganglion of the fifth metacarpal bone is described. Intraosseous ganglia have been described in the literature with reference to benign cyst-like bone lesions. They appear radiographically, as well circumscribed, juxta-articular, cystic lesions, which contain myxoid fibrous tissue histologically....
