We report ten cases of rupture of the distal part of the tendon of biceps brachii in patients aged from 27 to 58 years. MRI allowed assessment of the degree of retraction of the tendon which was related to the integrity of the bicipital expansion. When the retraction exceeded 8 cm the expansion was always ruptured. When there was doubt, or in longstanding(More)
We studied 10 patients with capsular tear of the glenohumeral joint in the rotator interval -- the triangular space separating the supraspinatus and subscapular tendons. The patients, manual laborers and athletic people, had no previous shoulder pain. Tears appeared after forced internal rotation caused by trauma. The pain was anterior and radiated(More)
The authors present the results of a comparative study of two series of posterolateral arthrodeses for scoliosis performed using COTREL DUBOUSSET instrumentation. Fifty-four consecutive patients underwent surgery for idiopathic scoliosis using the same technique. Thirty received a graft consisting of a mixture of corticocancellous autologous and allogenic(More)
Calcium phosphate ceramics are biocompatible and may develop interactions with human living bone tissues. They are used clinically on the surface of orthopaedic implants to improve primary fixation or in the form of porous blocks. Their brittleness is often advanced as a limitation of their common clinical use. In order to study the influence of porosity on(More)
A chronic cyst of the acromioclavicular joint was treated in 3 patients who were followed up for an average period of 26 months. All three were over 60 years old and presented with a massive rupture of the rotator cuff with a subnormal range of passive motion; active motion was variably affected and was painful. The patients underwent resection of one cm of(More)
We report two cases of epicondylitis of the elbow occurring after treatment with fluoroquinolone antibiotics. Both patients had intense pain which appeared very shortly after the first dose of the drug and was not relieved by conservative treatment. Ultrasonography revealed extensive inflammatory lesions with pseudonecrotic areas. MRI confirmed the lesions(More)
211 acetabular reinforcement rings of Müller have been implanted when revising total hip arthroplasties, 141 were followed up for more than 5 years. In 52 per cent of cases, an acetabular reconstruction using bone grafts was associated: in 51 cases, a bank allograft was used, one third of the grafts had only a role of filling. Theses rings remained(More)
Fourteen patients about to undergo total hip prosthesis were given 640 mg TMP and 3.2 g SMZ during the 48 hours previous to surgical procedure. Ten ml blood, fragments of cortical bone, spongy bone and bone marrow were taken 1 h to 1 h 30 mn after the last drug intake. Dosage were made using HPLC after biological specimens had been treated on a TM C18 Set(More)
The data on the fasciocutaneous vascularisation of the medial aspect of the arm are incomplete in the literature. This study presents the methodology and results of an anatomic study on 19 upper limbs with arterial injection. The vascularisation of the upper part of this region is provided in 68% of cases by the superficial fasciocutaneous branch (SFCB) of(More)
