"Tibialisation Of Fibula-Treatment For Infected Non Union Of Tibia"
V. K Pachnanda, Dara Singh, S. C Sharma
July-September 1985, 19(2):135-139
Thirteen cases of infected non union of tibia were treated by tibialisation of fibula. The duration of non union ranged from 3 to 24 months. There was a preexisting gap ranging from 2 to 7 cm. The operation consisted of first stage of Huntington’s two stage procedure of fibular transfer. All the cases except 2 (15.38 percent) showed fracture union. The time taken for fracture union ranged from 5 to 10 months. Anterior bowing of tibia without adding to the morbidity was observed in few cases.

Judicious Management Of Tuberculosis Of Bones, Joints And Spine
S. M Tuli
July-September 1985, 19(2):147-166
Although osteoarticular tuberculosis is a disappearing problem in many affluent countries, yet, in the Eastern hemisphere of the world, where more than 60 percent of humanity lives, this still poses one of the major public health problems. Nearly one percent of all varieties of tuberculosis in man occur in the skeletal system. The major areas of predilection in most of the series are in the following order, spine, hip, knee, foot, elbow, wrist, shoulder and other (Tuli 1975, Silva 1980).

Management Of Femoral Shaft Fractures
Sharat Jain, S Bhan, P. K Dave
July-September 1985, 19(2):120-125
A prospective study of 100 patients with femoral shaft fractures treated either with intramedullary nailing or in plaster spica after a preliminary period of traction; is reported. The time in bed, in hospital and to union were analysed as was the rate of recovery of the knee flexion. It is concluded that both methods have a place in management of these fractures and shortening was related to degree of comminution of fracture. Knee flexion has best chance of recovery if the patient is young, fracture involves upper or middle third of shaft and if it is internally fixed. Angulation in coronal and sagittal planes is very difficult to control during conservative treatment but can at times be difficult to control even after intramedullary nailing.

Post K-Nail Cast Bracing Of Fracture Shaft Femur
V. P Bansal, V Singhal, Harmit Singh, Narinder Arora
July-September 1985, 19(2):109-113
Critical analysis of 25 cases of fracture shaft femur treated by open reduction, kuntscher nailing and early mobilization with the help of functional cast bracing applied on an average of 12th post-operative day revealed good to satisfactory results in 96 percent cases. Application of functional cast bracing and early mobilization appear to enhance the fracture union and improve functions.

Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction By Intraarticular Semitendinosus Tenodesis
R. S Dhir, R. K Nayak
July-September 1985, 19(2):79-86
Anterior cruciate ligament was reconstructed using intraarticular semitendinosus tenodesis procedure in fourteen knees in same number of patients. Twelve of them including 2 females were sports-persons. Principles for an effective reconstruction and subsequent rehabilitation programmes were drawn up based on the biomechanical considerations and the process of structural transformation of the substitute ligament. Both on subjective and objective assessments the results of the reconstruction in all the 14 cases were found to be uniformly good. Eight of the 12 sportsmen were able to return back to their respective sports.

Ipsilateral Supracondylar Fracture Of Humerus With Fracture Of The Forearm Bones In Children
Kush Kumar, W. M Gadegone
July-September 1985, 19(2):140-144
Eight cases of supracondylar fracture along with fracture of the forearm bone have been studied and analysed. Prompt diagnosis and early management is essential for good results.

Role Of Needle Biopsy In Skeletal Lesions
S. C Goel, B. K Pal, P. K Rai, S Khanna
July-September 1985, 19(2):131-134
Needle biopsy was done by a modified Craig’s needle in 127 patients of skeletal lesions and results were compared with open biopsies. Diagnostic accuracy of needle biopsy was 80.4 percent and that of open biopsy 88.9 percent. No complications were encountered. Accuracy of needle biopsy was more in giant cell tumours and benign tumours.

Diagnostic Evaluation Of Needle Biopsy In Orthopaedic Lesions By A Modified Simple Instrument
R. L Mittal
July-September 1985, 19(2):126-130
Needle biopsy o various orthopaedic lesions was done by a locally made and simplified needle in 90 cases. In every case open biopsy was also done for comparison. Needle biopsy provided the diagnostic proof in 92.22 percent (83 cases) as compared to open biopsy in 90 percent (81 cases). The needle biopsy is simple, safe, economical and gives comparable results to open biopsy. The technique of taking multiple cores as practiced in this study will go long way in eliminating the inherent disadvantage of inadequacy of material.

Polyethylene Functional Thigh Brace, In The Treatment Of Fractures Of The Shaft Of The Femur
P. S Maini, K. C Mudgal, A. S Dahiya
July-September 1985, 19(2):92-96
Forty cases of fracture shaft femur were treated by early skeletal traction followed by the application of functional thigh brace made of low density polyethylene and moulded individually for each patient. The patients were allowed to walk gradually with the help of crutches. For proximal fractures, the classical brace was modified by adding a pelvic band and hip hinge in 20 degrees valgus to avoid varus angulation. Average period of skeletal traction was 34 days and union occurred on an average at 15.2 weeks. None of the patients had less than 90 degrees of knee movements at the end of treatment and the overall results were good in 82 percent cases. The polyethylene functional brace was light in weight, adjustable (can be loosened or tightened), washable, removable for personal hygiene and was economical as well.

Musculo-Skeletal Complications Of Haemophilia
M Sankaran Kutty, M Sadat Ali
July-September 1985, 19(2):87-91
Haemophilia can affect the musculo-skeletal system in a variety of ways and can be crippling. For many reasons, most of the developing countries do not have specialized centers at present for dealing with this disorder. Although we have seen only a small number of patients in this part of Saudi Arabia, they do represent a wide range of orthopaedic complications of haemophilia.

Thigh Lacer In The Management Of Fractures Of The Shaft Of The Femur
R Bhalla, R Aggarwal, L. H Lobo
July-September 1985, 19(2):97-103
Thigh lacer was used in 28 fractures of the shaft femur in 28 patients. It was made up of polyethylene high density sheet according to the measurement of the individual’s thigh. Union occurred in all the cases and function was far advanced by the time clinical and radiological union occurred. Thigh lacer provides stabilizing influence at the fracture site allowing uninterrupted fracture healing and negligible movement at the fracture site. It gave gratifying results in the fractures of the middle and lower third of femur but not in the fractures of the upper third femur. Thigh lacer was not found detrimental to the fracture union.

Closed Nailing Of Femoral Shaft Fracture An Indigenous Method
K. K Pruthi, O. N Vyas, Anurag
July-September 1985, 19(2):114-119
Two hundred and twenty four fractures of femoral shaft in 222 patients were treated by the indigenous method of closed nailing without roentgenographic control. Reaming was not done. Successful closed nailing could be done in 205 fractures. Average follow-up was 37.3 months. Hospital stay and sickness absenteeism were greatly curtailed after closed nailing. Majority of the patients were bearing full weight by 2 months. Operative technique and pit-falls are discussed in detail.

Immediate Weight Bearing In A Cast Brace Following Nailing In Femoral Shaft Fractures
Shekhar Agarwal, A. P Potukuchi, B. K Dhaon, G. C Das
July-September 1985, 19(2):104-108
Fifty two closed fractures of the femoral shaft in patients above the age of 16 years treated by open reduction and Kuntscher intramedullary nailing followed by immediate cast bracing are presented. These patients were made ambulatory 48 hours following surgery. Full weight bearing was encouraged right from the start. Stitches were removed after 3 weeks and the cast was reapplied. The brace was discarded only after radiological union.
