Notalgia paresthetica is primarily a localized pruritus and dysesthesia syndrome, and it may present with episodic itching or pain on a small patch of the mid back, usually an area of skin.

  • Osteochondroma – Details !!

    These AP and lateral radiographs show sessile lesions arising from the metaphyseal region of the distal femur. The lesions are well defined and appear to be growing away from the metaphysis. The matrix of the lesions is in continuity with the surrounding normal bone. The cortex of the normal bone appears to be in continuity with the lesions. The…

  • 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…
