A review of 61 patients with dislocation of the lunate (some with and some without fracture of the scaphoid) showed that the majority had satisfactory results at an average follow-up of three and a half years. Most patients with a simple dislocation had a good or satisfactory result; radiological instability was noted in a quarter of the wrists but was not often associated with symptoms. Two-thirds of the patients with an associated fracture of the scaphoid had a good or satisfactory result. Immediate percutaneous wire fixation of the reduced scaphoid, whether it is fractured or not, is the best way of maintaining normal anatomical relationship while the ligaments and fracture heal; this may further improve the prognosis. In most cases extreme dorsiflexion of the wrist appeared to be the mechanism of injury.

A segment of tibia 4.5 centimetres long was removed from one hind limb of fifteen dogs. It was then replaced and the main vasculature was restored by a microsurgical technique. In eight controls the segment was replaced without such restoration. In two-thirds of the former cases the microvascular reconstruction was successful; the rate of infection was found to be reduced, bone union was guaranteed and the rate of union accelerated. Success or failure of the reconstruction was clearly demonstrated in five cases by early bone scanning using technetium-labelled polyphosphate.

The results of excision arthroplasty on forty hips in thirty-two patients have been studied by personal review. The mean follow-up was ten years and the results were graded in the Lazansky system. The outcome was fairly predictable, most patients achieving a fair to good result. The patients were satisfied with the operation in unilateral cases as a secondary operation, but it was generally unsatisfactory as a primary procedure or when performed bilaterally. Pain relief was satisfactory, and previously infected hips achieved sound wound and bone healing. Half could walk with no aid or one stick. No correlation could be found between the radiological appearances and the quality of the result.
