Inoculation of blood culture vials with joint fluid samples has revealed the important pathogenic role of Kingella kingae in pediatric arthritis. However, recent studies based on broad-range 16S ribosomal DNA PCR and real-time PCR without a probe suggest that conventional methods remain suboptimal. We developed a new real-time PCR method with a probe that(More)
BACKGROUND The selection of fusion levels continues to be controversial in adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS). The classifications of King and Lenke remain the most widely used, but recent studies have demonstrated their shortcomings, including poor interobserver reproducibility. We propose a method of preoperative planning that is independent of(More)
STUDY DESIGN Retrospective study of prospectively collected data. OBJECTIVE Compare Universal Clamps (UCs) and hooks for the thoracic correction of adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS). SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA In scoliosis surgery, sagittal correction is as important as frontal correction due to the risk of junctional kyphosis. Compared to all-screw(More)
EOS imaging system is accessible to clinicians since 2007, allowing 3D spinal reconstructions in a functional standing position with reduced radiation. However, numerous ongoing research protocols continuously help implementing the dedicated software. The main principle and applications of the EOS device are discussed here, with an emphasis on future(More)
Kingella kingae arthritis in children is now mainly diagnosed by PCR, which has surpassed conventional culture of joint fluid. As oropharynx colonization is the first step of Kingella kingae invasion, we prospectively investigated the possibility of cultivating it from throat swabs, in children hospitalized for K. kingae arthritis. Throat culture was(More)
Percutaneous epiphysiodesis using transphyseal screws (PETS) has been developed for the treatment of lower limb discrepancies with the aim of replacing traditional open procedures. The goal of this study was to evaluate its efficacy and safety at skeletal maturity. A total of 45 consecutive patients with a mean skeletal age of 12.7 years (8.5 to 15) were(More)
Treatment of chronic low back pain due to degenerative lumbar spine conditions often involves fusion of the symptomatic level. A known risk of this procedure is accelerated adjacent level degeneration. Motion preservation devices have been designed to provide stabilization to the symptomatic motion segment while preserving some physiologic motion. The aim(More)
Nearly all (99) giant-cell tumors are solitary. The multicentric presentation is exceptional and not well elucidated. We report the case of a patient presenting five foci identified over an eleven-year period (right tibia, left 4th metacarpal, sacrum, right femur, left femur). The proliferation index was identified for each focus. A review of the literature(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study is to describe the kinematic changes in children with cerebral palsy (CP) after treatments performed on the forearm, wrist or thumb, with specific attention to the changes around the trunk, shoulder and elbow kinematics. METHODS With the use of a specific kinematic protocol, we first described the upper limb kinematics in(More)
STUDY DESIGN Outcome study to determine the internal consistency, reproducibility, and concurrent validity of the French-Canadian version of the Scoliosis Research Society 22 (SRS-22 fcv) patient questionnaire in France. OBJECTIVE To determine whether the SRS-22 fcv can be used in a population from France. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA The SRS-22 has been(More)
