1. AVN of bilateral hip in 36 year old male patient treated conservatively: A CASE REPORT
By : DR PRASHANTH KUMDR Dr. SURESH KORLAHALLI
DR SURYAKANTH K
A 36 year old patient with bilateral hip pain and limp of nine months gradually progressed to rest pain with inability to squat and low back ache. Then he was referred to an orthopaedician who suggested THR of left hip and core decompression of right hip. Then he moved to KIMS for treatment because of non affordability.
Radiograph revealed left hip anterolateral segmental collapse with subchondral sclerosis with involvement of 50% of head. Right hip had metaphyseal lucency with sclerosis. This reports lead to the diagnosis of bilateral AVN left > right. Patient was also diagnosed with early spondylosis. Blood investigations revealed borderline anemia and hypertriglyceridemia.
Patient was managed conservatively with
- Traction with 3 kg weight for bilateral lower limbs
- Physiotherapy: Muscles around hip stretching exercises, strengthening exercises, passive and active movements with resistance exercises, quadriceps and hamstring exercises, along with upper limb exercises.
- Zolendronic acid 5mg i.v. infusion during hospitalization.
- Calcium, iron, vitamin D3, methylcobalmin supplementation.
- Patient was discharged after 3 weeks advising to have balanced diet, to continue same exercises at home and to attend his routine work.
Results: Clinically patient had both hip full range of movements within 2 months, limping stopped in 2 weeks. The triglycerides level without Clofibrates touched base line, anaemia improved, back pain was relieved.
Monthly x ray both hips and pelvis and both hips lateral view were taken which revealed reduction in lucency and sclerosis of both femoral head with rebuilding of trabecular pattern with improvement in osteoporosis and disappearance of acetabular osteophyte. Rebuilding of vertical trabaculae seen. Sphericity was maintained. MRI on 14th month showed revascularization of trabaculae with maintenance of articular cartilage without hyper intensity in T2 images.
This case report has been published at various state level conferences and had been awarded.

A patient named pavan hadimani,15 yrs old came to KIMS hubli,admitted in ORTHO C Unit with pain and swelling of right elbow since 8 months.On further clinic-radiological evaluation and biopsy was found to be ANEURSYMAL BONE CYST and curettage and bone grafting was done.6 months later patient came back with same complaints.On further evaluation with x ray and MRI it was confirmed as recurrence of above condition. Surgery was done where we excised the tumour and was reconstruction of excised radial head was done using 3 rd metatarsal base as a radial head,augmented with fibular graft and fixed with plate and screws.
At 6 months of follow up patient has achieved good range of painless movements at the elbow, able to do all his routine and academic activities.
This paper has been presented at state level conference and has received accolades from the orthopaedic fraternity.
