RESEARCH & INNOVATION


1 (a)             DESIGN AND DEVELOPMENT OF THE GAMMA NAIL


I started to work in Cadaver for proximal femoral fracture since 1978 and designed a new intramedullary device for its fixation in 1984. Originally the name of the implant was the Halifax Nail. After a phase of clinical trials in 19 European countries this device was marketed under the trade name of “Gamma” Nail


Since then I have presented various papers on this devise in different countries.

  10. DESIGN AND DEVELOPMENT OF RETROGRADE HUMERAL NAIL


I started to work for a versatile humeral nail in 1994 for the fixation of all kinds of fractures of the humerus which is now regarded by many people as a neglected fracture, especially displaced fractures of the surgical neck and distal humeral fractures which are difficult to treat. Conservative treatment can result in a poor functional outcome. Surgical treatment with antegrade intramedullary nails may result in poor rotator cuff function because of direct injury to the cuff at the time of operation. Axillary nerve function may also be at risk from the insertion of proximal locking screws. To circumvent these problems, this new humeral nail was designed for insertion by a retrograde technique with no incision at the shoulder thus avoiding axillary nerve or rotator cuff damage. Indication of this device is much more than any other device presently available on the market. Until now I have performed more than 500 cases for different types of fractures of the humerus, including extra articular distal fractures and also complicated humeral fractures and non-union, many of them referred from different hospital.

Evolution Of A New Tibial Nail


I also developed a nail for internal fixation of fractures of the tibial fracture, especially distal extra articular fracture. Again, this tibial nail does not need conventional distal screws, and also does not need image intensifier so can avoid radiation to the hands of the surgeons. This unique design can maintain the distal rotation as well as give some dynamisation of the fracture which promotes healing. This nail is particularly useful in distal fracture of tibia. Otherwise this type of fracture would need to have been fixed with Illizarof frame.

PROJECTS UNDER DEVELOPMENT



  1. Femur – to treat fractured femur with a special interlocking intramedullary device to avoid problems with the distal locking screws. 37 cases done with satisfactory results.

  2. Colles fracture – special device for comminuted Colles fracture to avoid stiffness of wrist and need for re-manipulation

  3. Antegrade femoral nail for adolescent femoral fracture.


ONGOING RESEARCH WORK



  1. Ultrasound for complete rupture of tendo-Achilles with full plantar flexion of the foot before starting conservative treatment with plaster. Ultrasound will measure the length of the gap between the ends of the tendon and follow them up for up to 2 years to find out any incidents of re-rupture. This will evaluate which group of people had a re-rupture and what was the length of the gap between the tendon of ultrasound .

  2. Closed internal fixation of fracture neck of 5th metacarpal with two K wires.

  3. Comparative study with ice pack and marcine after excision of Dupuytren’s contracture and release of carpal tunnel.


PAPERS IN PREPARATION FOR PUBLICATION



  1. Result of 2000 cases of Gamma nail in the Calderdale Royal Hospital and Huddersfield Royal Infirmary

  2. Bi-malleolar fracture fixation with rush nail above the age of 60.

  3. Internal fixation of distal extra-articular tibial fracture with Halder tibial nail

  4. Experience of 800 cases of all kinds of fractures of the humerus with Halder humeral nail.
