Klebsiella pneumoniae carrying blaNDM-1 gene in orthopedic practice
This report is of an orthopedic case with fracture femur managed with internal fixation and bone grafting, who subsequently developed secondary infection with Klebsiella pneumoniae harboring blaNDM-1 gene. Minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) of imipenem was ≥8 μg/ml by E-test, suggestive of carbapenemase production. Phenotypic and further genotypic detection confirmed the presence of blaNDM-1 gene. The isolate remained susceptible only to tigecycline, colistin, and polymyxin B. (Source: Table of Contents : Indian Journal of Orthopaedics : 2007 - 41(1))

Hydatid disease of spine: Multiple meticulous surgeries and a long term followup
We present a long term followup (13 years) of spinal hydatid disease with multiple recurrences and intradural dissemination of the disease at the last followup. Intradural extension of the disease in our case was supposedly through the dural rent which has not been reported in English literature. An early followup of the same case has been reported previously by the authors. A 53 year-old female came with progressive left leg pain and difficulty in walking since 2 months. On examination, she had grade four power of ankle and digit dorsiflexors (L4 and L5 myotomes) on the left side (Medical Research Council grade). There wa...

Irreducible, incarcerated vertical dislocation of patella into a Hoffa fracture
We report a case of a 20-year-old male who presented with swelling and pain in the right knee following a motor cycle accident. Radiological evaluation using the computed tomography revealed a patellar dislocation with a concomitant Hoffa fracture. Patella was rotated around the vertical axis and was incarcerated into the Hoffa fracture. This is a very rare injury and first of its kind to be reported. The difficulties in diagnosis, mechanism of injury and management have been discussed. We feel closed reduction of such an injury is likely to fail and open reduction is recommended.

Epitheloid hemangioendothelioma of the subcutaneous tissues of a finger
Mohammad M Al-Qattan, Ammar C Al-RikabiIndian Journal of Orthopaedics 2014 48(5):522-524Epithelioid hemangioendotheliomas (EHEs) are known to have a variable malignant potential. EHEs are rarely seen in the hand and there is no consensus about their management. The options include excision, excision followed by adjuvant radiotherapy and amputation. In this paper, we report a case of EHE of a finger that was treated by excision. Although the tumor had ill-defined borders and there was histological evidence of tumor extension to all resection margins, no local recurrence or metastasis were noted during the 3 years of followu...

Scapholunate interosseus ligament reconstruction on a cadaver A technique
Conclusion: The technique suggests a possible way to repair a ruptured scapholunate interosseus ligament that cannot be repaired primarily. Because osteointegration of the ligament strips is not possible in the present experiment, biomechanics of the construct cannot be fully tested.

Evaluation of characteristics and surgical outcomes in cervical spondylotic amyotrophy
Hong-Li Wang, Heng-Chao Li, Jian-Yuan Jiang, Fei-Zhou Lû, Wen-Jun Chen, Xiao-Sheng MaIndian Journal of Orthopaedics 2014 48(5):511-517Background: Cervical spondylotic amyotrophy (CSA) is a rare clinical syndrome resulting from cervical spondylosis. Surgical treatment includes anterior cervical decompression and fusion (ACDF), and laminoplasty with or without foraminotomy. Some studies indicate that ACDF is an effective method for treating CSA because anterior decompression with or without medial foraminotomy can completely eliminate anterior and/or anterolateral lesions. We retrospectively evaluated outcome of surgica...

Computed tomographic evaluation of the proximal femur: A predictive classification in displaced femoral neck fracture management
Narender Kumar Magu, Sarita Magu, Rajesh Kumar Rohilla, Amit Batra, Abhishek Jaipuria, Amanpreet SinghIndian Journal of Orthopaedics 2014 48(5):476-483Background: Femoral neck fracture is truly an enigma due to the high incidence of avascular necrosis and nonunion. Different methods have been described to determine the size of the femoral head fragment, as a small head has been said to be associated with poor outcome and nonunion due to inadequate implant purchase in the proximal fragment. These methods were two dimensional and were affected by radiography techniques, therefore did not determine true head size. Computed to...

Misconceptions about the three point bony relationship of the elbow
Conclusion: Our observations indicate that this triangle is neither isosceles, nor equilateral, but a scalene triangle of unequal sides. There may even be a minimal difference in the 2 sides of the same individual, which has the potential to complicate routine comparison of the two elbows during examination. Results: The analysis of data revealed that all surgeons were aware of the three bony points relationship; however 21 of the 179 (mostly senior surgeons) did not give too much importance to this evaluation in daily clinical practice. Nine surgeons were not sure what type of triangle was formed, 17 thought it was an eq...

Congenital pseudoarthrosis of the clavicle with bifurcation
Narender Kumar Magu, Rohit Singla, Ashish Devgan, Paritosh GognaIndian Journal of Orthopaedics 2014 48(4):435-437Congenital pseudoarthrosis of clavicle is a rare clinical entity. It usually presents as a swelling in the clavicular region at birth or soon after birth. Fitzwilliam's original description of 60 subtypes of congenital pseudoarthrosis of clavicle have addressed several anatomical variants, e.g. association with cervical rib and abnormally vertical and elevated upper ribs. However, congenital pseudoarthrosis of clavicle associated with bifurcation is an atypical anatomic variant. To the best of our knowled...

Bifurcated intraarticular long head of biceps tendon
We report a rare case who underwent shoulder arthroscopy with impingement symptoms where in LHBT was found to be bifurcated with a part attached to superior labrum and the other part to the posterior capsule of joint. Furthermore, intraarticular portion of LHBT was adherent to the undersurface of the supraspinatus tendon. Awareness of such an anatomical aberration during the shoulder arthroscopy is of great importance as it can potentially avoid unnecessary confusion and surgery.
