It was at this stage that the concept of “low fric- tional torque arthroplasty” was conceived and he developed a small diameter femoral head replacement, which articulated with a thick shell of Teflon; the Teflon failed.

On demobilization he returned to the tutorship and was appointed honorary assistant orthopedic surgeon to the General Infirmary at Leeds in 1946 and surgeon to St. James’ Hospital, Leeds, Thorp Arch Children’s Orthopedic Hospital and to Batley, Dewsbury and Selby Voluntary Hospitals. His continuing interest in tendon surgery led to the publication in 1946 of his paper on “Recon- struction of Biceps Brachii by Pectoral Muscle Transplantation”—a work acclaimed by orthope- dic surgeons in this country and in France.

Feeling a sense of support from cheap cialis soft 20 mg fast delivery drugs for erectile dysfunction, confidence in discount cialis soft 20mg fast delivery erectile dysfunction medication online, and comfort 57 Copyright © 2005 by Lynn Dannheisser and Jerry Rosenbaum. Most educated consumers of medical care are generally familiar with the things to look for in selecting the right physician: • Medical competence, including level of training, licensing, board cer- tification, and experience in the diagnosis and treatment of the med- ical area related to your concern • Good references, hospital privileges, and the respect of peers • Ease in obtaining appointments, diagnostic testing, and prescriptions for medications • Good listening skills • Ability to give clear explanations • Respect for patients (including not having patients wait more than twenty minutes without an explanation for the delay) • Reasonable fees and/or acceptance of your insurance • Belief in and practice of preventive medicine Unique Needs of the Mystery Malady Patient The qualities already listed are imperatives in any doctor-patient relation- ship. However, mystery malady patients have special needs and require some unique additional qualities in their physician. Understanding and Extra Support First and probably foremost, mystery malady patients become just that because no doctor has successfully diagnosed them. It is understandable, therefore, that you approach the task of finding the right physician already feeling disappointed and frustrated by the medical community. After all, you have been traveling from one specialist to another only to receive no diagnosis, misdiagnoses, or contradictory diagnoses. Unless physicians have experienced a mystery malady firsthand or through a family member, few of them can even begin to know the often unspoken emotional burden of having an undiagnosed disease—the lack of Creating a Proactive Partnership with Your Physician 59 control, the anxiety of not knowing if you will ever get well, the adverse impact on your relationships, the sense of isolation, and the abandonment and hopelessness you may feel. Nor do physicians necessarily appreciate the inordinate amount of patience, persistence, and inner strength required to deal with the chronicity of your symptoms, the decrease in your overall qual- ity of life that comes with the uncertainty, and the physical as well as emo- tional impairment of function resulting from your mystery malady. Yet it is not a psychiatrist you need; it is a medical doctor who is sen- sitive to the effects of living with an unidentified illness. To most physicians, illness is a disease process that can be measured and understood through testing and clinical observation. You need a doctor who understands this and can give you the compassion as well as the support you need during the time it takes to pursue answers. You need to feel you’re not being judged about your fears and anxieties. You need someone who is willing to give you extra time, extra patience, and extra effort as you seek symptom relief and explore alternatives while searching for a diagnosis. This is no small request in an era in which most doctors have doubled their patient loads in an effort to survive financially in a managed-care environment, despite their desire to give high-quality medical care. Assurance of Continuity of Care Many—if not most—mystery malady patients have a pressing, practical problem: these days, physicians live in a world of medical specialization where very few are willing to move beyond their niche. You, on the other hand, live in a world where your mystery malady may cross over several areas of specialization. The acupuncturist tells you your kidney meridian is the problem; the chiropractor states that your spine is out of alignment; the gas- troenterologist says you have gastritis; the psychiatrist says it’s in your head; the neurologist blames your problems on migraines. But none of these opin- ions is helping, and no one seems to be looking at the whole picture. Generally speaking, this is supposed to be the role of your primary care physician. However, mystery maladies are often complicated and require more expertise than he or she can handle. You may need someone more spe- cialized who is also willing to oversee your comprehensive medical care— 60 Becoming Your Own Medical Detective especially if other specialists are, or should be, involved in your treatment. In other words, you require a doctor who’s willing to assume the “lead” in your care. If you don’t already have a team in place, you may need this doc- tor to create one. You need someone who is willing to support you in following our revolutionary model. Your physician must be the curious sort—unafraid of a challenge and willing to go the extra distance to assist you in finding some answers. She must be willing to give you the extra time and energy that this will demand. Once you have located a doctor who meets the basic criteria for a good doctor-patient relationship, you must make some basic determinations spe- cific to your special needs. Is she willing to be patient and give you the support you need in dealing with this problem? My condition was far too complicated to have a general family practitioner take the lead. Fortunately, however, I was able to convince my urologist to assume the lead role in the diagnosis, treatment, and management of my condition.

He displayed a remained unabated, but in 1813 he resigned the remarkable prophetic insight with regard to the appointment of resident surgeon and was pro- value of rest and the open air by saying: “it is moted to the visiting staff as assistant surgeon.

Colles’ Fascia Although he noted that “the os scaphoides was drawn inwardly from the normal head of the In the Treatise on Surgical Anatomy of 1811, astragalus,” yet he concluded that the oblique Colles dealt with the anatomy of the perineum position of the tarsal joint, and the altered form of and, in particular, drew attention to the middle the astragalus were the primary causes of the dis- fascia of the urogenital triangle, the attachments tortion; from which it would appear that he either of which served to confine within strict limits did not accept or did not fully appreciate the well- extravasation of urine from a ruptured urethra. He known dictum of Scarpa in his summary of the described this structure as follows: anatomy of varus, which was that “none of the tarsal bones is actually dislocated; but in addition Now proceed to dissect the perineum. Raise the skin of to the state of extension of the ankle joint, they the perineum, extending the dissection beyond the undergo rotation on their axes, and the astragalus tubera ischii to the thighs. This exposes to view a strong suffers less alteration of position than any of the fascia, which, on dissection, will be found to cover the entire of the perineum, and to blend itself with the tarsal bones. This fascia, although on a deformed feet by treating them with a club foot superficial view it appears continuous with the fascia shoe of his own device. The shoe had a resistant of the muscles of the thigh, will yet be found, on closer sole of tin, covered with leather, laced down the examination, to attach itself very firmly to the rami of middle and open at the toes. The texture and connexions of of the ankle held the heel in the angle between this fascia will serve to explain many of those phe- upper and sole. A detachable angular side splint, nomena attendant on the effusion of urine into the per- 75 Who’s Who in Orthopedics ineum, by rupture or ulceration of the posterior part of in other injuries of the wrist, render the difficulty the canal of the urethra. Colles’ Ligament On viewing the anterior surface of the limb, we observe a considerable fulness, as if caused by the Colles’ ligament is the name sometimes given to flexor tendons being thrown forwards. The fulness the small triangular fascia that springs from the extends upwards to about one-third of the length of the forearm, and terminates below at the upper edge of the pubic crest and ilio-pectineal line and passes annular ligament of the wrist. The extremity of the ulna upwards and inwards towards the Linea alba is seen projecting towards the palm and inner edge of under cover of the internal pillar of the external the limb; the degree, however, in which this projection abdominal ring. This ligament is also described in takes place, is different in different instances.... It was a comparatively short As soon as this is effected, let him move the patient’s paper but in its accuracy, clarity and conciseness, hand backward and forward; and he will, at every such it was admirable. It is an outstanding descriptive attempt, be sensible of a yielding of the fractured ends fragment of clinical surgery, the reading of which of the bone, and this to such a degree as must remove conveys a feeling of finality in the presentation of all doubt from his mind. The passage of time has altered only the treatment of this injury and not more than 20 years have passed Colles’ Law since a satisfying technique has emerged. Colles was established as a great clinical surgeon by this In 1837 Colles published a book entitled Practi- paper.
