A total of 26 children (26 affected, 25 control hips) with Legg-Calvé-Perthes' disease (LCP) met the cooperation requirements for inclusion in the study using contrast-enhanced power Doppler sonography for assessment of changes in the revascularization flow. Sagittal sonograms were obtained before and at the peak effect of an intravenously injected(More)
Selection of the most appropriate sonographic scanning approaches for evaluation of hips can improve the method efficacy and decrease the scanning time. To determine the sonographic scanning planes that best assess the proximal femoral vascularity in asymptomatic and pathologic hips of children with Legg-Calvé-Perthes disease (LCPD) and evaluate the(More)
The authors evaluated the usefulness of an ultrasound contrast agent (SHU 508A) to help identify different scintigraphic phases of revascularization of the femoral head in children with Legg-Calvé-Perthes (LCP) disease. Eighteen unenhanced and contrast-enhanced power Doppler images and scintigrams of the pathologic hip in 18 children with LCP disease were(More)
The authors studied a group of 52 patients with Legg-Calvé-Perthes disease who had been treated by femoral varus osteotomy (54 osteotomies) aiming to show the end results and complications of the procedure based on Stulberg et al's evaluation. Regarding this classification of results were found 19 osteotomies (35.1%) with a good result (Stulberg's Groups 1(More)
In the period 1987-1993, 13 patients were treated for both infected and non-infected long bone pseudoarthrosis by Ilizarov method. The records and radiographs of nine boys and four girls, with the age ranging from 7 to 16 years, with an average of 12.3 years, were reviewed. All but one concerned the tibia. In one case the pseudoarthrosis was localized in(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the medium-term clinical-functional results (minimum follow-up of six years) from total uncemented hip arthroplasty performed by means of a posterior minimally invasive access, in comparison with the traditional right lateral access. METHODS In a comparative prospective study, 224 adult patients underwent elective total hip(More)
OBJECTIVE To present the preliminary results from treating patients with Legg-Calvé-Perthes Disease (LCPD) by means of hip arthrodiastasis using a monolateral external fixator applied to the hip and to succinctly describe the surgical technique used, in a prospective study. METHODS Prospective study on 18 patients with LCPD who underwent surgical(More)
In a retrospective review of 77 patients with arthrogryposis multiplex congenita, 21 showed involvement of the hip (28%). The authors studied 18 cases with hip dislocation (11 bilateral and seven unilateral) and three with hip contracture. There were 12 female and nine male patients ranging their age from one month to 14 years. The follow-up in this series(More)
