Orthopaedics is one of the vast branches concerned with conditions involving the musculoskeletal system and associated muscles, joints and ligaments. Orthopaedic surgeons use both surgical and nonsurgical means to treat musculoskeletal trauma, spine diseases, sports injuries, degenerative diseases, infections, tumours and congenital disorders. Many developments in orthopaedic surgery helps in correcting of musculoskeletal deformities. Orthopaedic specialists involves in the diagnosis of injury or disorder, treatment with medication, exercise, casting, surgery or other options, rehabilitation by recommending exercises or physical therapy to restore movement, strength and function, prevention with information and treatment plans to prevent injury or slow the progression of disease. Orthopaedists also specializes in certain areas such as the foot and ankle, spine, shoulder, hand, hip or knee. Orthopaedic surgeon takes a history of illness or injury and then do a physical examination; this may be followed by diagnostic studies such as x-rays or blood tests that enables to discuss the diagnosis, enabling to select the best treatment plan so that the patient can live an active and functional life.
Orthopaedic research enables the entire health care system more accessible and effective for patients.

Introduction: Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) is one of the most common compression neuropathies. The optimal treatment of CTS has not been established. [...] READ MORE
We present the case of 4 adult subjects exhibiting asymmetry of the lateral atlantodental interval (within the accepted standard ranges of normal asymmetry equal or under 2mm) on open mouth x-ray examination. The asymmetry was clearly ameliorated after the Atlasprofilax procedure. Improvements in atlas tilt and axis spinous process deviation also were demonstrated. [...] READ MORE
Limb-Girdle Muscular Dystrophy (LGMD) are a group of hereditary muscular dystrophy that primarily affect skeletal muscle, leading to progressive muscular weakness. Among LGMD, autosomal dominant forms are relatively rare and represent about 10% of reported cases. Classification of LGMD is complex, based upon specific mutations. Currently, there are 6 reported families world- wide with LGMD with mutations in heterogeneous nuclear ribonucleoprotein D like (HNRPNDL) gene. [...] READ MORE

Investigation of the incidence of concomitant distal radius fractures and carpal instability and demonstration of its contribution to morbidity in this study will introduce a novel approach to the treatment of distal radius fractures. [...] READ MORE
Chikungunya virus (CHIKV) is transmitted by the Aedes mosquito that belongs to the Flaviviridae family, genus flavivirus, which also includes dengue viruses (DENV-1 to DENV-4), zika virus (ZIKV), West Nile virus, Japanese encephalitis virus and yellow fever virus . It was first isolated in 1958 from patients in Bangkok, Thailand , from where it spread across Africa and sporadic outbreaks in several Asian countries. [...] READ MORE
Peroneus longus tendon can be used for revision anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction cases. The choice of the graft is one of the most challenging steps in the revision of the anterior cruciate ligament. An alternative autograft option with less donor site morbidity and adequate strength should be planned, especially in revision cases, which directly impact on rehabilitation programs and fast return to preinjury status. Peroneus longus tendon was the graft of choice. [...] READ MORE
Man, as an individual, as a society, as a species, etc., although studied from different perspectives, is always the same man. If, in addition to considering man (himself is usually considered the most evolved and perfect of animals - which we do not comment on... here) in an analytical, [...] READ MORE
Restriction of extension of the knee joint is one of the most common complications after anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction surgery. Impingement caused by a fibrous tissue mass related to the graft (named as cyclops lesion) has been found to be an important cause of blocking complete extension. [...] READ MORE
Hip fractures and their causative and reparative solutions remain suboptimal despite years of research. One potentially remedial as well as causative factor, namely poor or malnutrition, which has been studied for some time in various health contexts, [...] READ MORE
