Purpose: To assess the efficacy and long-term results of Ethibloc treatment in aneurysmal bone cysts (ABC). Methods: Thirteen patients with ABC were treated with direct percutaneous Ethibloc injection. Four patients had only one injection and the other nine patients from two to four injections. No severe complications were observed; in two patients a local(More)
Development of osteomyelitis in a closed fracture is rare. Although it has been reported that trivial trauma may be associated with the subsequent development of acute osteomyelitis, no evidence has been found that fractures are involved in the etiology of osteomyelitis. Only 25 cases (11 in adolescents) of osteomyelitis after closed fracture have been(More)
The “original” traction-free Kocher’s method to perform the reduction of shoulder dislocation has been recently reviewed and some authors speculated that it can be self performed by patients under the guide of the physician. In this way, as an “assisted self-reduction” technique, it is also effective and simple to perform. The aim is to study the(More)
Design of large systems on a chip would be infeasible without the capability to flexibly adapt the system architecture to the application and the re-use of existing Intellectual Property (IP). This in turn requires the use of an appropriate methodology for system specification, architecture selection, IP integration and implementation generation. The goals(More)
The aim of this paper is to report an exceptional case of multiple internal exostoses of the ribs in a young patient affected by multiple hereditary exostoses (MHE) coming to our observation for chest pain as the only symptom of an intra-thoracic localization. A 16 years old patient with familiar history of MHE came to our observation complaining a(More)
A defective, normal or enhanced hemostasis has been reported in Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD). A retrospective analysis of intra-and postoperative (up to 36 h) estimated blood losses was performed in 156 patients undergoing spinal surgery for: DMD (n = 31), idiopathic scoliosis (IS) (n = 70), poliomyelitis (n = 10), cerebral palsy (CP) (n = 28), spinal(More)
A computer vision camera prototype for real-time applications has been developed. The camera integrates a CMOS image sensor, an FPGA based coprocessing card, and an embedded PC for communication and control tasks. The system is targeted to computer vision tasks where low level processing and feature extraction can be implemented in the PPGA device. The PPGA(More)
Congenital sternal defects are rare deformities frequently associated with other anomalies of the chest wall and other organ systems. Although pectus excavatum, pectus carinatum, and cleft sternum can present as isolated deformity, in most cases they are associated with heart and inner organs anomalies and described as symptoms of syndromes like Marfan(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the rate of intraoperative and postoperative complications in a large series of patients affected by neuromuscular scoliosis. It was a monocentric retrospective study. In this study have been considered complications those events that significantly affected the course of treatment, such as getting the hospital stay(More)
