REVIEW
Durgashankar Meena, Mayank Gupta, Vijay Kumar Jain, Rajendra Kumar Arya
Cysticercosis is an emerging parasitic disease affecting worldwide population. There is large volume of data present in the literature for neurocysticercosis. The isolated intramuscular involvement of cysticercosis is uncommon and there are only sporadic case reports available. There is no review available in the literature which gives in detail clinicoradiological features and management of isolated intramuscular cysticercosis. Knowledge about such a presentation is important especially in developing countries and to differentiate the condition from a variety of other similar conditions...

INTRODUCTION: Epidemiologic data on the incidence of venous thromboembolism (VTE) in Indian population vary widely. Most studies show that the incidence of VTE is lower in Asian patients than in Western population. Screening tools to identify high-risk patients should enable us to reduce this complication. METHODS: The incidence of VTE in 101 patients who underwent knee or hip arthroplasty, or surgery for hip fractures, without chemoprophylaxis for deep vein thrombosis (DVT) was documented...

INTRODUCTION: Venous thrombo-embolism (VTE), which consists of deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism, is a potentially fatal condition. According to Western literature, DVT of lower limb veins is one of the most common complications following surgeries for lower limb. Few studies have been published from India on the subject and little is known about the true prevalence of the DVT and hence there are no clear guidelines regarding the prophylaxis for DVT for Indian patients...

BACKGROUND: Optimal rotational alignment of femoral component is important for longevity and success of total knee replacement. Whiteside line (WL), posterior condylar axis (PCA) and femoral transepicondylar axis are various intra-operative landmarks to guide femoral rotation. Each of these has its pros and cons. The aims of our study were to assess the relationship of posterior condylar axis and the antero-posterior axis of femur with the surgical epicondylar axis and evaluate whether degree of deformity or severity of osteoarthritis alters the rotational alignment of the femur when posterior condylar axis is taken as a reference...

The intramedullary insertion of antibiotic impregnated PMMA rods, beads or nails are widely used and accepted modality of treatment for chronic osteomyelitis of long bones. But at times it becomes difficult to insert and remove these antibiotic delivery systems owing to narrowed medullary canals. Here we present a technique for preparing PMMA rods with diameter ranging from 6 mm to 3 mm. These rods could easily be placed in narrow intramedullary canal of long bones with chronic osteomyelitis or infected non-union...

Neuropathic arthropathy (Charcot joints), which most frequently affects the weight-bearing joints of the body, is commonly associated with a variety of medical and neurological conditions, and is notoriously difficult to treat due to the nature of the underlying pathology. We present a case of idiopathic neuropathic arthropathy of the thumb CMC joint of an elderly female complicated by blunt trauma to the thumb. To our knowledge, this is the first reported case in the literature of this rare association.

Scedosporium apiospermum is frequently found as a saprophyte in soil, sewage and contaminated water. Its manifestations in immunocompetent patients are usually localised and in immunodeficient patients, it causes invasive systemic diseases. We are reporting the case of a 40-year-old male, who presented with pain, oedema and multiple discharging sinuses over the lateral aspect of the left foot with history of thorn prick. On examination, there were multiple active sinuses with tenderness and local rise in temperature...
