Cervical Spondylosis : A Clinical Study With Comparative Radiology In Indian Population
U. K Jain, A. K Agarwal, V. P Sharma, Shishir Rastogi, Hari Kishan, M. K Goel
January-March 1986, 20(1):23-27
One hundred cases of cervical spondylosis were subjected to detailed clinical and radiological examination. Radiologically 78 cent of the cases showed positive findings and most of the changes were present at C5-C6 and C6-C7 level. No correlation between severity of symptoms to the radiological changes could be drawn.

Correction Of Club Foot By Combined Postero-Medial Soft Tissue Release
P. K Rai, O. P Sharma
January-March 1986, 20(1):18-22
For resistant variety of club foot, untreated club feet in older children and in cases of club feet with failed conservative treatment one stage combined postero-medial soft tissue release was done. We have operated 53 cases with 76 feet between 1972 and 1978 but only 39 cases with 50 feet which could be followed for more than 2 years were included in this series. We observed excellent results in 56 per cent, good in 36 per cent, and poor in 8 per cent of feet. Twenty four per cent of feet showed minor and major type of relapse.

Localized Myositis Ossificans-A Case Report
V. K Tiwari, K. K Sharma
January-March 1986, 20(1):61-62
Trauma is the most common cause of myositis ossificans or heteropic bone formation. The lesion may follow a single or repeated mild or severe trauma (blow). Gaschickter and Masaritz (1938) reported 25 patients with circumscribed Myositis ossificans. Fifteen of them gave the history of injury, in rest 10 cases there was no history of evident trauma. The localized lesion reported by many authors, occurs particularly in young vigorous male adults, specially in sports, such as football (Ackerman 1958). In older literature ossification is often described as occurring in the thigh muscles of shoemaker or in the “rifle shoulder” of infantry man or in the thighs of cavalry man, so called “riders bone” (Gaschickter and Masaritz 1938). It is an inflammatory process of muscle in its early stage. Inflammation gradually subsides as ossification takes place (Thorndike 1940). The ossification is gradually absorbed in part or full, depending upon its size and location. We are reporting here a case of localized myositis ossificans without significant trauma.

Clinico-Radiological Study Of Cervical Spondylosis
Raj Bahadur, T. P Srivastava
January-March 1986, 20(1):28-32
One hundred consecutive patients of cervical spondylosis and 100 asymptomatic subjects were studied both clinically and radiologically. There was male preponderance and the degenerative process started in third decade but most of the patients (79 percent) belonged to fourth decade or above. Patients presented with pain in neck (46 per cent), radiculopathy (46 per cent) and myelopathy (8 per cent). The incidence of abnormal curvature of cervical spinal column (straightening or kyphosis), osteophytosis in general and at each level of the vertebra was significantly more among patients than control. Associated congenital anomalies of cervical were more among patients.

Surgical Management For Non-Union Of The Humeral Shaft
S. S Yadav
January-March 1986, 20(1):36-38
Seventeen cases of established non-union of humerus (6 months to 6 years duration) were treated by Kuntscher’s nailing, Sherman’s plating and inlay fibular strut supplemented by a cuff of cancellous bone graft in all the cases. Fourteen fractures united after first operation and 3 needed second surgery, one did not unite even after second surgery. Emphasis is laid on the adequate fixation and application of post-operative shoulder spica to avoid distraction and rotation particularly in nailing and fibular grafting groups.

Synovial Osteochondromatosis
J. C Taraporvala, A. R Chitale
January-March 1986, 20(1):44-48
A clinico-pathological analysis of 24 cases of synovial osteochondromatosis, a rare disease in which a metaplasia occurs in the sub-synovial forming cartilaginous masses which may further ossify, was done. It is usually mono-articular, commonly involving the knee and hip joints; 2 cases of bursal osteochondromatosis, a very rare variant of the disease, are included in this series. Characteristic radiological pictures and naked eye appearances at operation, along with typical histology, help in irrefutably confirming the diagnosis. The rationale of our treatment of choice viz. synovectomy with removal of all loose bodies, has been discussed.

Supra-Condylar Femoral Osteotomy For Correction Of Flexion Contracture Of Knees
S Baveja, S. L Gupta, J. C Sharma
January-March 1986, 20(1):14-17
Supra-condylar femoral osteotomy for correction of the deformity in 39 cases of flexion contractures of knees have been analysed. Amongst 36 cases it resulted from residual poliomyelitis, in 2 following guinea worm infection and in one it followed an amputation. The osteotomy was carried out as a single stage procedure and yielded gratifying results. Complications met with were neurovascular deficiency, infection, displacement of fragment and joint stiffness.

A 'Freshening' Operation For Delayed Union
Amitabha Chattopadhyay
January-March 1986, 20(1):33-35
Creation of a fresh and a continuous haematoma, and inflammatory reaction in and around the vicinity of the site of ‘delayed union’ was achieved surgically. It proved highly beneficial in cases of closed tibial shaft fractures. All the 9 cases treated by freshening operation showed clinical as well as radiological union within an average period of 8 weeks.

Roentgenographic Evaluation Of Low Friction Arthroplasty A Review Of Fifty Cases
P. S Maini, Praveen Chawla, S. K Moda
January-March 1986, 20(1):1-8
The early and late roentgenograms of the first 50 consecutive Charnley low friction artheoplasties, performed at Medical College and Hospital, Rohtak from 1975 to 1982, demonstrated interesting reactions of the joint structure. Osteoporosis, early breakage of the wires and a trochanteric bed covered by cement were the main factors preventing or delaying the healing of the osteotomy of the greater trochanter. Almost all the hips showed a radiolucent line at the acetabular bone-cement junction and about half at femoral bone-cement junction. One third of the hips had increased femoral cortical thickness. One hip had sterile loosening of the femoral component with a varus shift. Dislocation of components was observed in 2 cases. Though 4 hips had some ectopic ossification, in only one hip it was severe enough to adversely affect the end result. The use of radio-opaque cement seems advantageous over the radiolucent type.

Congenital Dislocation Of The Hip A Review Of 37 Consecutive Cases
S. P Mohanty, V Chacko
January-March 1986, 20(1):9-13
Thirty seven cases of congenital dislocation of the hip seen and treated from 1974 to 1982, over a period of eight years were analysed. The incidence was 4.5 per year which seemed more than the generally believed incidence in India. Eighteen cases were treated by non-operative methods, whereas 16 cases were treated by surgery. Three cases deferred treatment. The average follow up was 3.3 years. Poorer results were invariably due to delay in treatment, hence better efforts at an early diagnosis are to be instituted.

Vascular Response In Fractured Limbs Following Intramedullary Fixation : An Experimental Study
R. C Mohanti, U. N Mishra
January-March 1986, 20(1):39-43
In an experimental study on fractures in 25 animal increased vascular response was observed in the experimental group commencing 2 days after the fracture, reaching a peak response at the end of 2 weeks, and the gradually subsiding to normal limits within 6 weeks, coinciding with the onset of union of the fracture. The arteriolar dilatation was more marked in comparison to the control group. In contrast, the capillaries in the control group revealed a more persistent dilatation. Union occurred at 7 weeks in the experimental group inspite of medullary nailing which is considered to damage the medullary vessels. An incomplete union however, was the outcome in the control group even at the end of 10 weeks.
