  • Bado’s Classification of Monteggia’s Fracture

    Classification Type I: Anteriorly angulated fracture of the ulna associated with an anterior dislocation of the radial head Type II: Posteriorly angulated fracture of the ulnar diaphysis associated with a posterior dislocation of the radial head Type III: Fracture of the ulnar metaphysis associated with a lateral or anterolateral dislocation of the radial head Type…

  • Feet meant for Shoes !

    Interdigital Neuroma –> The only proven risk factor for development of an interdigital neuroma is female gender, which likely is related to the use of fashionable shoes that force plantar flexion of the metatarsal heads and secondary hyperdorsiflexion of the metatarsophalangeal joints.  

  • Alpha Angle DDH 

    The alpha angle is a measurement used in the ultrasonographic assessment of developmental dysplasia of the hip (DDH). The angle is formed by the acetabular roof to the vertical cortex of the ilium and thus reflects the depth of the bony acetabular roof. This is a similar measurement to the acetabular angle. The normal value…

  • Melorheostosis

    The radiographs show localized diffuse cortical thickening that is characteristic of melorheostosis.  The condition may be monostotic or it may involve many bones in one extremity (monomelic) in the distribution of a sclerotome.  Bone scans will show increased uptake at the site or sites of skeletal involvement.  Long tubular bones are most commonly involved.  Melorheostosis…

  • Intercondylar Eminence Fractures 

    Intercondylar eminence fractures in skeletally immature patients usually result from injuries that would cause ACL tears in skeletally mature patients.  Meyers and McKeever reported that a large number of bicycle falls produce this type of injury in children.  However, intercondylar eminence fractures can be caused by a spectrum of sporting activities and by motor vehicle…

  • Monteggia’s Fracture Dislocation 

    Monteggia fracture-dislocations consist of a fracture of the proximal one third of ulnar shaft with concomitant dislocation of the radial head.  Posterior Interosseous Nerve ( PIN ) is usually associated with this fracture which recovers in majority of the cases with passage of time.  #tusharmehta #MedEd

  • Bearing Surfaces 

    #update #tusharmehta #THR  #BearingSurfaces Ceramic bearing surfaces, like other bearing surfaces, have their advantages and disadvantages. The biggest advantage of ceramic-on-ceramic bearing surfaces is that they have the best wear properties of all bearing surfaces due to their low coefficient of friction.  Additional advantages include inert wear particles and high biocompatibility.  Disadvantages of ceramic bearing surfaces…
