Anterior Approach To The Cervical Spine
S. M Tuli
April-June 1979, 13(1):23-33
Anterior approach to the cervical spine has been under critical scrutiny since it’s earlier description (Robinson and Smith 1955) to establish it in proper perspectives. The article describes the personal observations and results of the anterior approach to various lesions in the cervical spine over a period of 13 years (1965-1977).

Open Reduction For Old Unreduced Posterior Dislocation Of The Elbow-A Review Of Results
D. K Bhattacharya
April-June 1979, 13(1):34-38
Old underused elbow dislocations are not uncommon in our country. The advocated treatment has been excision arthroplasty, and open reduction having no place in the management of old, unreduced dislocations in the adult. Excision arthroplasty of elbow although gains hinge movement, loss of muscle power of some degree is unavoidable and a stable elbow for heavy manual work is rarely achieved. Open reduction on the contrary would not only gain active functional range of elbow movement but also provide stability, an essential pre-requisite of most of our patients who are manual workers. The present study assesses the results of open reduction in terms of range of movement, pain, stability and total functional capacity.

Medical Displacement Of Fracture Head Radius Associated With Dislocation Of Elbow
N. D Aggarwal, Baldev Singh
April-June 1979, 13(1):39-41
Dislocation of elbow joint with medical displacement of one of the fragments of a comminuted fracture of head of radius is a very rare injury. Only 6 cases have been reported so far. One of these had ulnar nerve palsy as a result of the pressure of the displaced fragment. This is a report of 2 cases who had comminuted fracture of the head of radius with one big fragment lying on the medical aspect of the elbow outside the joint.

Combined Injuries Of Ipsilateral Femoral Shaft And Hip
P. S Saxena, R Kalla, N. K Soni, M. C Soangra
April-June 1979, 13(1):42-46
Combined ipsilateral injuries of femoral shaft and hip are unusual and are mostly encountered in traffic accidents. The hip fracture often escapes notice as symptoms produced by femoral shaft fracture are more severe and obvious than those of hip injury. Upto 1974, about 60 cases were reported in world literature (Delaney and Street 1953, Kimbrough 1961, Wickstorm 1961, Dencker 1965). Raskin and Bryan (1976) added 5 more cases. A report of 9 such cases who were admitted in J.L.N. Hospital, Ajmer during the period from 1972 to 1976 and in M.G. Hospital, Jodhpur in 1976 and 1977 are being presented.

A Study Of Cast Bracing As A Treatment Of Fracture Shaft Femur
B. K Dhaon, B. K Sharma, B Sankaran
April-June 1979, 13(1):47-52
Sarmiento (1967) and Mooney et al. (1970) reported on effectiveness of lower extremity prosthetic principles applied to casting and cast bracing techniques in fractures of tibia femur. Mooney et al. (1970) and Moll (1973) advocated ambulant treatment of femoral shaft fracture by cast brace and called it physiological method of treatment. The purpose of present study was to determine whether cast bracing technique would allow patients to achieve even earlier ambulation than had been possible before and perhaps a period of hospitalization too.

Total Hip Replacement In A Patient With Thin Acetabular Floor-A Case Report
P. V. A Mohandas, S Vasudevan
April-June 1979, 13(1):75-77
Total replacement of the hip is now an established procedure for advanced coxathroses. We envisage that in the next few years this procedure will gain wide spread acceptance in this country. Total hip replacement is the only satisfactory procedure in younger patients who are crippled with this disease. The operation of low friction arthroplasty is now performed in younger patients following increasing confidence with the quality of long term results. Charnely (1976) has shown that the rate of wear of the high density polyethylene (H.D.P) socket is such that it may be expected to last for 30-35 years. Even if the socket does wear out a secondary procedure to replace it may be undertaken. In the light of this we are definite that our surgeons will be doing this operation more and more in younger individuals. In this connection we wish to present a case report where we had problems in a young individual affected by polyarticular rheumatoid arthritis.

Benign Chondroblastoma Of Scapula-A Case Report
J. P Goravalingappa, J. H Makannavar, A. M Kulkarni, J. S Hegde
April-June 1979, 13(1):78-80
Benign chondroblastoma is a rare benign tumour of long bone, almost exclusively an epiphyseal lesion, although secondarily may extend into the metaphysis and affecting patients around second decade of life. Scapula is a rare sit for these tumours. Todate only 16 cases have been described in that site and acromion process is still rarer site (Wright and Sherman 1964, Wellmann 1969, Schajowicz and Gallardo 1970, Dahlin and Ivins 1972). A case with the tumour located in the acromion process of left scapula is being reported here.

Primary Mycetoma Of The Patella –A Case Report
Brijbala Arora, S Gupta, D. R Arora
April-June 1979, 13(1):84-86
Mycetoma is a chronic granulomatous infection usually of exposed parts of the body especially of feet and hands. It begins in the soft tissues including muscles and results in tumefactions, deformities and multiple draining sinuses discharging fungal colonies called grains or granules. The common species causing mycetoma in India are Madurella mycetomi and Streptomyces madurae (Mohapatra and Bhargava 1967, Klokke et al. 1968, Chugh et al. 1975). The bone is usually involved by direct extension. Primary mycetoma of bone and especially that of patella is very rare. To the best of our knowledge only one such case has been reported in literature by Majid et al. (1964). We present here one case of primary mycetoma involving the patella.

Reconstructive Surgery In Spastic Lower Limbs
S. K Moda, P. S Maini, N. S Chaddha
April-June 1979, 13(1):1-9
The first description of any surgical procedure in the treatment of cerebral palsy was Delpech’s tenotomy (1816), an operation used for the correction of the deformities of the feet. Since then various operations have been done on muscles, tendons, nerves, bones and joints and a review of literature over the period reveals developing trends and changed ideas with the growth of knowledge in this field. It is well known (McCarroll and Schwartzmann 1943), that the results of surgery in the lower limbs are better than that in the upper limbs: the function of lower limbs being not so complicated and exacting.

The Value Of Wedge Tarsectomy With Mid-Tarsal Fusion In Equinocavovarus Deformities Of The Foot
K Bose
April-June 1979, 13(1):10-16
Tarsectomy with mid-tarsal fusion, or anterior wedge osteotomy of the foot, has been used in the past for structural cavus deformities of the foot in adolescent, with satisfactory results (Bose and Yeo 1976). For equinocavovarus deformities, however, it was thought to be unsatisfactory. The main objections were that the varus of the heel was not corrected, and the incidence of pseudarthrosis was high (Patterson et al. 1950). Therefore operations aimed at fusion of the subtalar and midtarsal joints (or triple arthrodesis) have been generally favoured. In the University Department of Ortopaedic Surgery at the Singapore General Hospital, wedge tarsectomy with mid-fusion has been performed for equinocavovarus deformities. This operation was routinely done with elongation of the tendo achilles and plantar fasciotomy. This is a report of our experience with this procedure.

Epiphyseal Stapling For The Correction Of Lower Limb Inequality Following Poliomyelitis
Debkumar Mukherji, A. K Das
April-June 1979, 13(1):17-22
Residual paralysis of the lower limb following poliomyelitis is one of the common causes of limb length discrepancy in developing countries. Das (1958) in a review of 200 cases of poliomyelitis, reported lower limb shortening in 47 children (23.5 per cent) out of 112 with unilateral lower limb involvement. Of the various operative procedures practiced for correction of discrepancy, epiphyseal stapling around the knee is perhaps the simplest.
