A new biomodular prosthesis was used for the treatment of a displaced fracture of the proximal part of the humerus in twenty-two shoulders in twenty-two patients. The fractures were classified according to the Neer system; there were thirteen four-part, five three-part, and four head-splitting fractures. There were fifteen women and seven men, and the mean(More)
One hundred thirty-four total knee arthroplasties in 98 patients with a valgus alignment were analyzed. Knees with a preoperative alignment of 10 degrees or greater anatomic valgus were believed suitable for inclusion. The average follow-up period in these patients was 4.5 years (range, two to ten years). One hundred eighteen knees were implanted with a(More)
The authors reviewed the results of ankle arthrodesis in 68 ankles in 66 patients. The average follow-up period of the patients was five years (range, two to ten years). There were 40 ankles in which internal fixation was used and 28 ankles in which external fixation was used. The two groups were compared to determine the effect of mode of stabilization on(More)
A replacement arthroplasty was performed in 236 shoulders at The Hospital for Special Surgery from 1984 through 1989. Ten patients (eight women and two men) from that group were identified as having instability of the shoulder at the time of follow-up, and the results for these patients were reviewed retrospectively. The ages of the patients ranged from(More)
Since 1986, 20 shoulder orthroplasties have been performed for chronic, posttroumatic changes of the proximal humerus with a modular prosthetic system. The average patient follow-up was 33 months, range 24 to 47 months. Sixteen women and four men with an average age of 69.6 years were studied. The procedure was carried out for malunion of the tuberosities(More)
The results using the anterior sliding graft technique with rigid internal fixation for tibiotalar arthrodesis were reviewed. The indications for anterior sliding graft technique included posttraumatic arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, pseudarthrosis following prior attempt at arthrodesis, and postinfectious arthrosis. The arthrodesis rate was 95%. The(More)
We reviewed 19 revision hip arthroplasties in which the new femoral component had been recemented into the old, intact cement mantle. The mean time from the first operation to revision was 64 months and the average follow-up was 59 months. There were 7 excellent, 11 good, and one fair result. No femoral component had been revised for loosening and all the(More)
Sixty-seven feet in forty-five patients who had rheumatoid arthritis were followed for an average of six years (range, four to ten years) after an operation on the forefoot that included resection of the metatarsophalangeal heads or joints and the insertion of a double-stemmed silicone-rubber implant in the first metatarsophalangeal joint. There were(More)
Diabetes mellitus is a common disease. It affects multiple organ systems. Adverse effects of hyperglycemia on infection, fracture healing, and bone remodeling have been recently reported. This study was conducted to evaluate the clinical and radiographic results of 93 total hip arthroplasties in 78 consecutive patients with diabetes. All femoral components(More)
