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)
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)
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)
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)
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)
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)
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)
PURPOSE OF THE STUDY We report a series of 14 patients with a massive rotator cuff tear operated on with a deltoid flap according to Augereau's technique. The aim of this study was to evaluate the benefits of this technique using Constant's scoring system. The follow up is 40 months. MATERIAL AND METHOD 14 patients, mean age 59 years, with a total rotator(More)
