Introduction: Nerve injury is a known complication of total hip arthroplasty (THA), but it is most commonly seen in the lower extremities. There is, however, minimal discussion about the incidence of upper extremity nerve palsies, specific to the radial nerve, during THA for a patient in the lateral decubitus position. The radial nerve can be injured while in the lateral decubitus position due to poor positioning of the posterior part of the humerus onto the hard surgical table causing compression of the nerve...

Introduction: Fibrous dysplasia (FD) is an uncommon benign tumor of bone. Although FD can affect flat bones, it is rare for the scapula to be involved. In addition, little is known about the management of FD when it involves the scapula. We present possibly the first comprehensive case report of the management of advanced unilateral FD of the scapular region. Case Report: A 47-year-old male presented to us with pain and swelling over the left shoulder. The swelling was 11 cm × 15 cm × 8 cm and was hard and tender with rough texture...

Introduction: Cervical rib is a mesenchymal or cartilaginous elongation of the transverse process of usually the seventh, rarely the sixth, and very rarely the fifth cervical vertebrae. It is an important cause of thoracic outlet syndrome as it has been reported in 5-% of patients with thoracic outlet syndrome. Bilateral cervical rib is a rare anomaly with a prevalence of 0.56% in Enugu, South Eastern Nigeria. This case is reported to emphasize the possibility of bilateral cervical rib as a cause of thoracic outlet syndrome in our environment...

Introduction: The treatment of osteochondral lesions of the talus (OLTs) recalcitrant to non-surgical interventions is challenging. Particulated juvenile cartilage allograft transplantation (PJCAT) has become a viable treatment option, obviating the need for an osteotomy or second-stage surgery and eliminating risk of donor site morbidity. Short-term outcomes have been promising, but failures associated with PJCAT have not been well described. Case Report: Four patients with OLTs who had continued symptoms after PJCAT underwent a second-look arthroscopic evaluation...

Introduction: Fractures of the medial condyle of elbow in children are rare. Diagnosis is frequently missed and many authors reported poor outcome for these fractures when treatment was delayed. Case Report: Here, we present a case of 3-month-old ununited fracture of the medial condyle in an 8-year-old child, treated by osteosynthesis that produced good result. The patient presented to us with valgus instability of elbow and restricted range of motion. Open reduction, freshening of margins, and fixation of the ununited fragment with K-wires were done...

Introduction: Acute hematogenous osteomyelitis (AHO) has been noted mainly in open fractures injuring soft tissue immunological defenses and in immuneincompetent patients. Osteomyelitis complicating closed fractures in immunocompetent adult patients is, therefore, a rare clinical entity with scarce literature. Case Report: We report a case of primary Staphylococcus aureus bacterial infection of a closed, humeral shaft fracture occurring in a previously healthy 28-year-old male patient...

Introduction: The disruption of extensor mechanism during or after total knee arthroplasty is a rare but disabling complication for the patients. The results of various methods of managing patellar ligament rupture are not predictable and favorable. Case Report: We report a case of patellar ligament rupture which occurred 6 months after the primary total knee replacement. It was managed satisfactorily using hamstring graft and minimal implant. Conclusion: Simple and easily reproducible technique for patellar tendon reconstruction that can be performed by surgeons not routinely performing ligament reconstruction gives favorable outcome...

Introduction: Subscapularis tendon plays an important role in shoulder stability and functions. There has been much interest recently in the prevalence of subscapularis tears and outcomes following repair of subscapularis tears. We aimed to assess whether there is an increase in pick up rate of subscapularis tears in patients who underwent arthroscopic rotator cuff repair following routine additional use of a 70° arthroscope during shoulder arthroscopy. Materials and Methods: A retrospective review of a single surgeons practice was performed to assess the frequency of identifying and repairing subscapularis tears among a cohort of 58 consecutive arthroscopic rotator cuff tears performed over a 12 months period...

Introduction: Crossover deformity of the first and second toes is not uncommon of a severe hallux valgus (HV) deformity. It can be corrected by adequate realignment of the hallux. However, the crossover deformity may be complicated by also a concomitant varus deformity of the second toe. Although the pathoanatomy of second toe varus deformity has been well described, its pathogenesis is still unclear. Consequently, its treatment has been mostly symptomatic and notspecific to its pathogenesis...
