Case Study
The article presents a case study of a forty-three-year-old man with severe neglected bilateral congenital knee dislocation. The patient was diagnosed with distal femoral recurvatum deformity of 115° bilaterally and the knees has atrophic distal thigh muscles and multiple callosities in the popliteal spaces. He undergoes single-stage osseous procedure with excision of trapezoid-shaped segment to correct the recurvatum deformity of the distal part of the femur with femoral shortening.

    Many impinging hips are said to have a mix of features of femoral cam and an overcovered acetabulum causing pincer impingement. Correction of such a mixed picture by reduction of the cam lesion and the acetabular rim is the suggested treatment. We therefore asked two questions: (1) Is the...

    Hip resurfacing is a technically demanding alternative to total hip arthroplasty. The use of traditional jigs for placement of the femoral guidewire can lead to preparatory errors that may predispose the resurfacing construct to premature failure. Computer navigation is a tool that can be used...
