Extra-Articular Synovial Osteo-Chondromatosis Affecting The Ilio-Psoas Bursa
R. K Singhal, S. R Srivatsa, S Kumaravel, C Ratnakar
October-December 1973, 7(1):72-77
Synovial osteochondromatosis affecting diarthrodial joints is a well established entity. However, instances of a similar lesion involving the synovial lining of tendon sheaths and various bursae located in different parts of the body are met with exceptional rarity. We wish to report case where the ilio-psoas bursa was the site of extensive synovial osteochondromatosis without communicating the hip joint.

Crystal Synovitis-An Experimental Study
V. P Bansal, D. S Grewal, R. N Chakravarti, O. N Nagi, A. S Kumar
October-December 1973, 7(1):107-114
In the pathogenesis of gout and pseudogout, the significance of crystals of sodium urate in the former (Faires and McCarty 1961) and calcium pyrophosphate (McCarty et al 1962, 1963) and calcium oxalate (Curry and Sweetenham 1965) in the latter has been highlighted. However, it is not known if the joint lesions seen in the humans are directly attributable to the presence of crystals or that there are some other metabolic factors involved in it. In order to elucidate the role of these crystals in producing joint lesions, the present experimental study was undertaken to study the effect of (a) sodium urate and (b) calcium oxalate crystals on the synovial membrane.

Strontium-85 Scintimetry In Metastatic Bone Lesions
N. S Ranawat, N. D Krishne
October-December 1973, 7(1):25-36
Radionuclide scintimetry of the skeleton was introduced for clinical use by Bauer and Wendeberg in 1959. Such methods have developed into a sensitive and reliable way of detecting even small areas of increased bone formation associated with tumour, fracture, infection, and ostconecrosis. In the absence of positive roentgenographic findings, scintimetric identification of such bone lesions may be of diagnostic value (Borak 1942, Bauer and Wendeberg 1959, Gynning et all 1961, Charkes and Sklaroff 1965, Fellander and Lindberg 1966, Greenberg et al 1966, Bauer 1968, Cameron 1969, DeFiore, Lindberg and Ranawat 1970). The purpose of study was to demonstrate the use of Strontium-85 scintimetry for diagnosis and evaluation of metastatic bone tumour.

Hydatid Disease Of Innominate Bone-A Case Report
V. M Shah, K. M Shah, N. R Parikh
October-December 1973, 7(1):90-94
Hydatid disease of bone is rare. The bones which have been known to be affected are the humerus, the femur, the vertebra and the innominate bone. As hydatids in bone grow very slow, they are usually recognised only in adults. Because of the rarity of this disease in bones, we felt worth reporting a case which we came across last year.

The management Of Sepsis Following Metallic Internal Fixation Of Fractures
N. D Aggarwal, L. D Garg
October-December 1973, 7(1):57-60
Metallic internal fixation is an important procedure for the treatment of fractures. With any surgical procedure on the bones, post-operative infection is a known complication, the incidence of which varies from place to place depending upon the aseptic precautions. When infection develops after intra-medullary nailing, the result can be disastrous. There is limited information concerning infections after intramedullary nailing and the problem of management has been little discussed. In such infected nailed fractures, surgeon is confronted with a problem as to whether the internal fixation device should be removed straight away or after the fracture unites. The purpose of this article is to report the findings in a series of 24 cases showing sepsis following metallic internal fixation, available for study at Rajindra Hospital, Patiala from 1961 to 1966.

A Simple Technique For Reducing Humeral Shaft Fracture
J. C Sharma, P. K Sethi
October-December 1973, 7(1):61-63
The aim of this paper is to describe a simple method of reducing the humeral shaft fracture. It is not intended to present a complete follow-up, but only to limit the description up to the post-reduction radiological picture. This method was employed in reducing 30 fractures of the humeral shaft with satisfactory and gratifying results. There were 11 transverse, 19 spiral and oblique fractures with and without comminution.

Pigmented Villonodular Synovitis Report Of Five Cases
A. S Kumar, D. S Grewal, V. P Bansal
October-December 1973, 7(1):68-71
Villonodular synovitis is an uncommon condition. Jaffe, Lichtenstein and Sutro Introduced this term in 1941 after studying 20 cases involving joints, tendon sheaths and bursae. It is their belief that nodular and diffuse lesions are histologically similar and they are part of the same disease process. Because of the histological appearance and benign course of the lesion they concluded that the condition was not a tumour, but an inflammatory response to an unknown agent. This paper presents 5 cases of villonodular synovitis involving the knee joint.

The Effect Of Varying Degrees Of Fixation On The Healing Of Closed Diaphysial Fractures-An Experimental Study
B. P Varma, V Kumar
October-December 1973, 7(1):97-106
In recent years there has been increasing use of metallic fixation in the treatment of fractures. The effect of internal fixation on fracture repair process is still ill-understood. Anderson (1965), studied the healing pattern of experimental osteotomies under plaster immobilization and with different internal fixation devices that provided varying degrees of fixation, and concluded that the best healing of an osteotomy was achieved by rigid internal fixation. Letting (1968) studied the repair process in osteotomised rabbit tibia in fifty animals treated in plaster, and fifty treated with six hole plate and screws. He concluded that in plated bones, union occurred nearly twice as quickly. Although it has been said that in experimental animals, there was no evidence that a delay in fracture healing resulted from operative exposure (Herms and Blount 1964), it was thought worthwhile to study the healing processes of closed diaphysial fractures under varying degrees of fixation with a view to understand the role of internal fixation on fracture healing under these conditions.

‘Benign' Giant-Cell Tumour Of Patella With Extensive Bilateral Pulmonary Metastasis
V. M Shah, P. R Mehta, P. V Prabune
October-December 1973, 7(1):50-52
Giant-cell tumour is regarded as one of the most confusing of bone tumours. In the past many other conditions, which are now known as “giant cell variants”, were included under this heading. Because of this, the giant-cell tumour gave the impression of a ‘benign’ lesion. The giant-cell tumour occurring in patella is extremely rare. Cameron (1955), compiling the reports of various authors reported only 24 recorded cases of giant-cell tumour of patella. The case reported below illustrates both the aspects mentioned above.

Aneurysmal Bone Cyst Of Patella
K. K Srivastava, S. C Ahuja
October-December 1973, 7(1):53-56
Jaffe and Lichtenstein, in 1942, for the first time established aneurismal bone cyst as a definite beign lesion of bone. Since then, it has been described practically in all the bones of the skeleton. Non-traumatic lesions of patella are rare and this report of an aneurismal bone cyst of patella is one of them.

Giant Cell Tumour Of Bone, A Clinico-Pathological Evaluation And Follow Up Of Hundred Cases
C Vyaghreswarudu, J. V. S Subbarao
October-December 1973, 7(1):37-49
According to the currently accepted criteria for diagnosis there are only a few reports of large series of giant-cell tumours reported from India. A study of 51 cases was reported by us earlier (Vyaghreswarudu 1960). The present report is based upon personal observations on 100 cases of giant-cell tumours of bone. The number of the cases available for various types of studies and follow up observations is mentioned at appropriate places. The incidence of giant-cell tumour of bone n relation to the tumours in general and tumours of the skeletal system in particular, as observed in the king George Hospital, Andhra Medical College, Visakhapatnam, during the 20 years period between 1949 and 1968 is shown in table I. Bonetumours formed 1.35 percent of all the cases of tumours of the body. Giant-cell tumours constituted nearly 28 percent of all cases of bone tumours.

Hydatidosis Of The Spine And Femur-A Report Of Two Cases
T. P Srivastava, S. M Tuli
October-December 1973, 7(1):86-89
Skeletal hydatidosis, at times, mimicks skeletal tuberculosis and it may become difficult to differentiate between the two. Further the management of this condition is a difficult one. We are reporting two cases of skeletal hydatidosis which highlight these aspects of the disease.
