    Lmao! - Such a female thing to do to be honest. :ahee: - I didn't know that you had a game console in the kitchen by the way? :holmes: - Epic multi-tasking! :yy:
    We have a PS3 with COD etc and a wii and a plasma screen TV :ahee:. Oddly they're my female flatmate's and our male one doesn't play with us. We're really cool like that. I'm terrible at COD, I own at Mario Kart though, it's a testament to a wasted(?) childhood.

    That seems to go pretty well with the female requirement then. :p: (+ the fact that I said UCL males are :camp:)

    Nah, but seriously kudos to you for playing COD even though you suck at it. :p: - Mario is amazing though. :coma: (No homo. )

    The wii is a big no no though. :noonoo:

    Can I ask, lower extremity length inequality in children. What are the treatments aside from inserts to even out the length difference?
    Ilizarov external fixators :daydreaming: Osteotomy, fix each end of the bone to the Ilizarov, and slowly winch it out over a long period of time. Or; stilts of different lengths :awesome:

    I passed out the first time I saw one on the ward. I think it's the whole "OMG that's going into someones bone but I can see it poking through their skin" thing. Eww.
    Putting them in is pretty fun though :awesome: Like adult meccano.

    Oh I've seen those on the ortho ward, diddn't know what they were though. Are they only used for kids? I think there was one after a RTC adult vs car...

    Also, I have Rome TW on my computer, for some reason the resolution is too large - so it distorts with a irratating red box floating around to tell me the resolution is buggered. I've tried everything I can, the screen resolution is right, I've tried changing it in the game and on the settings file and the uninstall/reinstall...run out of ideas now, any techies? pelase?

    Definitely seen them on grown-ups: on a T&O placement we had a tertiary referral to redo and no-one could work out how to get it off! Until the anaesthetist dug out a rusty-looking gas cylinder screwdriver from a corner of the theatre and found it fit the screws very well!

    Wiis are fun when you're drunk. As long as you don't get too enthusiastic and start hitting people with the controllers.

    I did get better at COD eventually

    Nope, can use them for complicated open fractures in adults cos you don't need the same skin coverage as you would for internal fixation, so you can fix the fracture whilst waiting for plastics to sort skin grafting etc. You can get non-Ilizarov ex-fix's as well, with the same pins through the bone/skin, but external rods instead of circles (which were originally gear wheels off bicycles - the wheel spokes were used for the internal pins. I think Ilizarov was Russian, so he made do with what he had - they were supposed to be used to compress fractures, so they'd be winched tighter together to press the fracture ends together, but he went on holiday and his junior turned it the wrong way, so when he came back the limb had been lengthened, but the bone was still intact, so they started using them for limb lengthening stuff and holding fractures out to length).

    They're primarily used for fixating complex fractures.

    Is that the same as PUO?
    Yep, pyrexia/fever of unknown origin - PUO is probably more professional sounding though
