Reverse hybrid total hip arthroplasty

By |March 1st, 2021|

Aims: This study aimed to evaluate implant survival of reverse hybrid total hip arthroplasty (THA) at medium-term follow-up. Patients and methods: A consecutive series of 1082 THAs in 982 patients with mean follow-up of 7.9 years (5 to 11.3) is presented. Mean age was 69.2 years (21 to 94). Of [...]

Definition and validation of a system for classifying the undersized Corail femoral stem in total hip arthroplasty

By |March 1st, 2021|

Introduction The uncemented total hip arthroplasty relies on a secure initial fixation of the femoral stem to achieve osseointegration. Undersizing of the femoral implant compromises this. Surgeons routinely review postoperative radiographs to assess appropriate sizing, but existing methods of assessment lack standardisation. We present a system of accurately and reliably [...]

Intramedullary fixation for fractures of the proximal humerus

By |June 1st, 2013|

Fractures of the proximal humerus are extremely common. While there is as yet no consensus regarding surgical management, this article discusses the rationale behind nailing and details the authors' technique.

Absence of the Flexor Digitorum Longus Tendon: An MRI Study

By |November 1st, 2012|

Flexor digitorum longus (FDL) is the primary flexor of the lateral four toes. It is a reliable source of tendon for transfer surgery. We present a case whereby a patient who required a reconstruction for adult acquired flatfoot deformity using FDL as a dynamic structure for transfer was found to [...]

Genetic aspects of tendinopathy

By |July 1st, 2008|

Tendinopathy is characterised by a disorganised, haphazard healing response with no histological signs of inflammation. Research on tendon injuries is limited to the description of the condition and its management, and the pathogenesis is still ill defined. Together with known intrinsic and extrinsic factors, genetics may play a significant role [...]

VOCCs and TREK-1 ion channel expression in human tenocytes

By |April 2nd, 2007|

Mechanosensitive and voltage-gated ion channels are known to perform important roles in mechanotransduction in a number of connective tissues, including bone and muscle. It is hypothesized that voltage-gated and mechanosensitive ion channels also may play a key role in some or all initial responses of human tenocytes to mechanical stimulation. [...]

A Review of Epidemiology of Paediatric Elbow Injuries in Sports

By |February 1st, 2007|

The elbow is a common site of orthopaedic injury in the paediatric population. The number of these injuries continues to rise following increased levels of participation in paediatric recreational and competitive sport. Injuries to the paediatric elbow can be classified as either overuse or acute. Delineating injury patterns to the [...]

Molecular Events in Tendinopathy: A Role for Metalloproteases

By |July 1st, 2005|

Disorganized, haphazard ineffective healing is a constant feature of chronic tendinopathy. Normal tendon is composed mostly of type I collagen. Tendinopathic tendons, conversely, have a greater proportion of type III collagen, which is associated with tendon rupture. Matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) are involved in remodelling of the extracellular matrix (ECM) of [...]

Nonsteroidal Antiinflammatory Drugs in Tendinopathy

By |February 1st, 2005|

endinopathy, a broad term used to describe disorders in and around tendons, 1,2 is associated with repetitive tensile forces exerted on tendons. 3-5 Rapid increases in the duration and intensity of these forces may cause tendon injuries, 6 possibly the starting point in the pathogenesis of chronic tendinopathy. The exact [...]

The epidemiology of injuries to the elbow in sport

By |January 1st, 2005|

Objective: To review the existing data available on the epidemiology of elbow injuries in sport. Data sources and study selection: A comprehensive, web-based search of existing articles pertaining to elbow injuries in sports was performed. Main results: Age, sex, and level of experience in sport influence the incidence of common [...]
