Early active motion versus immobilization after tendon transfer for foot drop deformity: a randomized clinical trial CORR Open Access

Location: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2914290

Conclusion In patients with Hansen’s disease (Leprosy), an early active mobilization protocol for foot-drop correction has no added risk of tendon pullout and provides similar functional outcomes compared with immobilization. Early mobilization had the advantage of earlier restoration of independent walking.

To analyse risk factors in rachitic Congolese children with serious deformities in their lower members and to describe the lesions.
RESULTS: The most frequent deformity was genu varum (58.2%), followed by windsept (23.7%) and genu valgum (13.9%). Genu varum predominated in girls of between 2-4 years (p=0.0025). We found florid rickets...

Location: http://web.jbjs.org.uk/cgi/reprint/82-B/7/1030

Seven children with a post-traumatic cubitus varus deformity were treated using the Ilizarov technique of distraction osteogenesis. The outcome was rated as excellent in each case and all were satisfied with the cosmetic appearance. No complications had been encountered by the latest follow-up at a mean of 66.7 months. This...
