The authors report a simple chart that offers a comprehensive picture of spasticity of the upper limb and provides a more objective method of recording data. Distinction is made between fixed postures and the residual active range of motion at the shoulder and elbow. The presence and function of the muscles can be identified easily on dynamic EMG studies,(More)
One case of acral myxoinflammatory fibroblastic sarcoma is presented. Most of the soft tissue tumefactions of the distal extremities are benign. Sarcomas are rare and usually high grade. Acral myxoinflammatory fibroblastic sarcoma is a unique low-grade tumor described by Kindblom in 1998. This neoplasm has a propensity for digits, presents a low rate of(More)
Syndactyly release may require skin grafting to fill the skin defects, which might lead to complications or poor cosmetic outcomes. A simple graftless technique for syndactyly release with a hyaluronic acid (HA) scaffold used to cover the bare areas is described. Between 2008 and 2011, release of 26 webs in 23 patients was performed. All skin defects were(More)
The total anterior tenoarthrolysis (TATA) allows tenolysis, arthrolysis and skin repair in the same operation, avoiding combined different surgical procedures. The authors present a series of personal and original indications and propose a partial anterior tenoarthrolysis (PATA) for the treatment of isolated stiffness of the proximal interphalangeal joint(More)
Six patients were treated for scapholunate dissociation by reconstruction of both the palmar and dorsal parts of the scapholunate interosseous ligament through a combined palmar and dorsal approach. The mean active range of motion of the wrist at final follow-up was 44 degrees of flexion and 58 degrees of extension and the mean hand grip strengths was 88%(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this investigation is to estimate the incidence rates of upper extremity injuries and to give an overview of the most frequent diagnoses. MATERIALS AND METHODS Two population databases were queried for all injuries in the upper extremities, the SINIACA-IDB (S-IDB: Emergency Department Injury Database in Italy) and the Hospital(More)
