Anterior cruciate ligament rupture (ACL) is a common injury, particularly among young sporting adults. Early onset osteoarthritis (OA) can be a devastating and difficult to manage consequence of such an injury. The techniques for reconstructing the ACL are advancing all the time, but the effect that this has on the progression of OA is less well un

Hip fractures are common injuries in the elderly, with significant mortality and morbidity from several factors. Many of these patients have cardiac disease, and some develop cardiac complications which may increase mortality. Troponin T is a marker of myocardial injury but can be raised in other conditions. Patients over 60 years admitted with hip
Outcomes of distal radius fracture fixation with APTUS locking plates and variable angle locking screws
Various methods have been described to treat unsta- ble fractures of the distal radius. In recent times, there has been a surge in the use of volar plating for distal radius fractures. Our paper examines the clinical, functional and radiological outcomes of distal radius fracture ﬁxation with the APTUS locking plates and variable angle locking screws.
Intra-abdominal lymphangiomas are rare benign tumours that usually arise in the mesentery of the small bowel. We present the case of an intra-abdominal lymphangioma that involved both the jejunum and its adjacent mesentery that ultrasound and CT scanning suggested was an ovarian tumour.
