Comparison of magnetic resonance arthrography and wrist arthroscopy in the evaluation of chronic wrist pain in Indian population
Conclusions: The presented diagnostic results of MRA are superior to those of magnetic resonance imaging quoted in literature. MRA is a potent tool for evaluating chronic wrist pain but tends to miss lesions of intrinsic carpal ligaments (SLL and LTL) more than TFCC. Wrist arthroscopy may be recommended when the clinical suspicion is strong. (Source: Indian Journal of Orthopaedics)

Outcomes of balloon kyphoplasty for the treatment of osteoporotic vertebral compression fracture in rheumatoid arthritis: A case & #8211;control study
Conclusions: The use of KP to treat OVCF in RA group exhibited similar outcomes to non-RA group in terms of pain reduction, vertebral height restoration, and kyphosis correction. However, RA group had significantly higher rate of complications involving adjacent segment fracture and recollapse. Therefore, careful followup after KP in patients with RA is required to monitor for high complication rate. (Source: Indian Journal of Orthopaedics)

Failure to return to preinjury activity level after hamstring anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction: Factors involved and considerations in goal setting
Conclusion: Psychological factors are important (and may require targeted input), but return-to-sport is multifactorial. Ongoing symptoms may prompt further surgery, but this is frequently unsuccessful in achieving return. Patient-specific goals should be sought and revisited throughout the rehabilitation program. Acknowledging psychological barriers, in those aiming to return to the same level, may help achieve this goal. In other patients, success may be return to a desired lower level. Understanding the patient's expectations is important in goal setting. (Source: Indian Journal of Orthopaedics)

Conclusions: This paper is the first population-based study of this condition and one of the largest series with functional scores. A multidisciplinary approach is essential in managing these patients. The surgical treatment of these conditions is often difficult and protracted, and judicious and careful consideration to both the bony and soft tissues aspects of the management need to be taken into account, with functional limb amputation not necessarily being considered as a last resort.

Gait pattern of adults with cerebral palsy and spastic diplegia more than 15 years after being treated with an interval surgery approach: Implications for low-resource settings
Conclusion: Although different to TD adults, the gait patterns observed in the adult with CP treated with ISA is in line with other studies. Gait patterns suggest that derotation osteotomies potentially could have improved the long term gait patterns. Although SEMLS might be the preferred treatment method, potentially resulting in better outcomes, ISA can also be used to treat children with CP in developing countries as India and South Africa, where a SEMLS approach is not always feasible.
