The increased likelihood of osteoarthritic change in the tibiofemoral joint following meniscectomy is well documented. This awareness often leads medical practitioners to advise patients previously engaged in recreational running who have undergone meniscectomy to cease all recreational running. This literature review examines the following questions: 1) Is there evidence to ...

Today, aseptic loosening is the most common cause of revision of major arthroplasties. Aseptic loosening accounts for more than two-thirds of hip revisions and almost one-half of knee revisions in Sweden. Several theories on the cause of aseptic loosening have been proposed. Most of these theories, however, are based on ...

Synovial chondromatosis is a rare, generally benign condition characterized by the formation of multiple cartilaginous nodules in the synovium of joints and occasionally on the tendon sheath or bursae. If the nodules are intra-articular, the condition is referred to as synovial chondromatosis; if extra-articular, tenosynovial chondromatosis. This space-occupying lesion can ...

We describe Tn5386, a novel ca.-29-kb Tn916-like mobile element discovered to occur in ampicillin-resistant, Tn916-containing Enterococcus faecium D344R. PCR amplification experiments after overnight growth with or without tetracycline revealed "joint" regions of circularized Tn5386 composed of 6-bp sequences linking different transposon termini. In one case (no tetracycline), the termini were ...

We report a case of a patient with an infected shoulder hemiarthroplasty in whom a permanent antibiotic-impregnated cement spacer was employed with satisfactory results. This method of treatment has limited applications and would not be appropriate in all cases of septic shoulder joint arthroplasties. However, its use may represent a ...

Traumatic hip dislocation in the paediatric population is a relatively rare occurrence and constitutes an orthopaedic emergency. A trivial force is all that is required and non-accidental injury should not be necessarily suspected. A case report involving a hip dislocation in a 21-month-old child, the youngest in the recent English ...
