A new technic of trochanteric osteotomy preserving the attachment of the vastus-lateralis is described: this procedure leads to mobilize the greater trochanter which becomes interposed between the gluteus-medius upward and the vastus-lateralis downward. A true digastric muscle is therefore realized where functional integrity is preserved. The biomechanical(More)
The Project54 system seamlessly integrates control of all in-car electronic police equipment into one standard interface. The Project54 system can be completely controlled by voice commands. The two goals of the project are to improve officer’s in-vehicle safety and integrate control of all in-vehicle electronics. Since speech recognition in the Project54(More)
PURPOSE OF THE STUDY This study was undertaken to assess the functional repercussion of retention or sacrifice of the posterior cruciate ligament in total knee replacement. MATERIAL Two homogeneous randomised series of 24 cases were matched. They concerned primary total knee arthroplasty for osteoarthritis using the same prosthetic design. In case of(More)
Fracture of the ceramic head of a replacement arthroplasty of the hip has been encountered in 2 patients. After studying the literature the causation of such fractures has been assessed. Defects in manufacture of the prosthesis, damage during its handling and incorrect use may be responsible, with the tapered neck being the principal instrument of failure.(More)
Twenty total hip arthroplasties with stage III and IV aseptic femoral loosening were revised with a custom cementless hydroxyapatite coated femoral component. A femoral graft was used in 50% of the cases. At an average of two years follow up: - 15 prosthesis remained perfectly stable; - 4 exibited slight early and non progressive subsidence less than 0.5(More)
