Abstract

Introduction: Standard references such as knee and lower leg position cannot be used in patients with knee arthrodesis with a bilateral neck of femur fracture during bipolar hemiarthroplasty. We describe a simple technique that guides a surgeon in assessing the femoral stem version in such cases.
Case report: We present a case of 52 years old male with bilateral lower limb Post Polio Residual Paralysis with right knee arthrodesis who sustained bilateral neck of femur fractures. The difficulties, in this case, were the inability to flex the knee and to use the ankle or the opposite limb and its bony landmarks as reference.
Conclusion: We describe a simple surgical technique of inserting a Steinmann pin in the distal femur in the coronal plane parallel to the transcondylar axis for intraoperative assessment of neutral position and version of the femoral stem.
Keywords: Bilateral; hemiarthroplasty; femoral stem; anteversion; knee arthrodesis.

Abstract

Introduction: Pain in the inguinal region, frequently spreading to the femur, is a common symptom with a variable differential diagnosis. Spontaneous iliopsoas hematoma is a rarely reported adverse effect of anticoagulation therapy that can present with pain in the hip, with or without previous injury or surgery at the region. This case report aims to remind clinicians of this rare condition that can result in major complications.
Case Presentation: An 83 year old male patient presented to our Emergency Department with pain at the right hip which within a week expanded to the lower back and anterior femur. During clinical examination restriction of movement due to soreness was noted, the hip joint was kept in slight flexion, while there were no abnormal vascular findings. Medical history included a right-sided total hip replacement 8 years ago, chronic atrial fibrilation, chronic cardiac failure and hypertension. He was on anticoagulant (rivaroxaban) and anti-hypertensive regimen. Laboratory results showed low hematocrit (HTC) and hemoglobin (HB), elevated prothrombin time (PT) and increased international normalized ratio (INR). Imaging showed a large iliopsoas hematoma. Conservative treatment was decided. Subsequently, the hematocrit normalized, the hematoma regressed and the pain receded.
Conclusion: Despite being a frequent cause of complain, pain of the hip, lumbar or femur region could be the result of a more complex pathology. Such cases should therefore not be overlooked but examined thoroughly, especially if presenting with suspicious signs or symptoms or in a setting of co morbidities. When complains are with regard to an area that has been operated on, as in our case, clinicians should not attribute all symptoms on the presence of prior surgery.
Keywords: Anticoagulation, spontaneous hematoma, iliopsoas, total hip arthroplasty.

Abstract

Introduction: Transient osteoporosis of pregnancy is usually benign in nature. Rarely serious complication like fragility fracture of neck of femur can occur. Usually idiopathic in nature and self-limiting. So far only 12 such cases and bilateral in only 2 patients have been reported in literature. Since, X-rays are usually avoided in pregnancy this condition is usually missed leading to late diagnosis.
Case report: A 26-year-old primigravida was referred to our institute on her 7th month of gestation with bilateral hip pain and limp. She developed bilateral hip pain on her 5th month of gestation which was progressive in nature. Her radiograph showed bilateral femoral neck fracture. To avoid radiation hazard to the fetus fracture fixation was delayed till caesarean section on her 38th week of gestation. Closed reduction and internal fixation with three CC screws was done for left femur neck fracture. Fixation was planned for right side fracture simultaneously but since the patient did not consent for bilateral surgery she was asked to review after one month for right femur neck fracture fixation. The patient who lost to follow-up showed up after 6 months walking comfortably. Radiological examination showed that in the nonoperated side the fracture united in Varus with shortening of 0.5 cm.
Conclusion: Musculoskeletal problems during pregnancy should not be overlooked. MRI should be used for early diagnosis whenever feasible. Fracture Neck of femur in pregnancy in-spite of delayed diagnosis and treatment has a better prognosis even with conservative treatment.
Keywords: transient osteoporosis, pregnancy, femoral neck fracture, spontaneous healing.

Abstract

Introduction: Tripolar lesions of the thoracic limb are rare. We report a rare a Galéazzi fracture associated with an ipsilateral fracture of ulna and olecranon in a 45-year-old patient. Surgical management has been delayed due to limited resources of the patient.
Case presentation: It was a 45-year-old man admitted in our emergency after a fallen on bicycle. He presented a fracture of olecranon, shaft bone fracture of radius and ulnar, and distal radio-ulnar disjunction. The assessment at 18 months has found a consolidation of fractures. The elbow and wrist regained joint range, but we noted a limitation of prono-supination related to radioulnar synostosis. This limitation had no impact on the professional and sporting activities of the patient.
Conclusion: Apart the difficulties to describe mechanism responsible of this complex lesion, the functional prognosis of the limb depends on a correct diagnosis and adequate management. At the last follow-up, the patient was satisfied with the result obtained. Longer term follow-up will allow us to determine the issue of this complex lesion in this patient. For the moment patient is not complained so wejust wait and see.
Keywords: Galeazzi fracture, distal radioulnar disjunction, fractures, forearm, olecranon.
