The silhouette technique: improving post-operative radiographs for planning of correction with a hexapod external fixator

Correction of deformity of a bone through use of a hexapod external fixator requires clear definition of the relationship between the bone and the frame. Achieving adequate orthogonal calibrated radiographs for this aim, with minimum X-ray exposure, can prove a challenge in the radiography suite. We describe a simple technique for obtaining adequate imaging, without the use of ...

Collateral ligament injuries of the metacarpophalangeal joint of the thumb: a treatment algorithm

The management of injury to the ulnar and radial collateral ligaments at the metacarpophalangeal joint of the thumb is complex. Treatment is dependent upon a number of factors with a wide variety of options for each ligament. Inadequate treatment has the potential to lead to a poor functional outcome. We present the relevant clinical anatomy, mechanism of injury, methods of ...

Successful ACL reconstruction with a variant of the pes anserinus

An anatomical variant of the pes anserinus encountered during anterior cruciate ligament reconstructive surgery which has not been previously described is discussed. During routine harvesting, the sartorius fascia was incised and the semitendinosus and gracilis tendons were identified. At the distal portion, it was noted that each tendon gave off an additional tendinous slip. The ...

Post-traumatic myositis ossificans of the sternocleidomastoid following fracture of the clavicle: a case report

Background Fractures of the clavicle are common injuries. The complications have been well documented in the literature. Case presentation Despite it close proximity to the sternocleidomastoid muscle and myositis ossificans recognised as a known complication of any fracture, the two have never previously been described in association secondary to a fracture of the clavicle. We ...
