Intermediate-term immobilization may lead to an increase in serum and urinary calcium. In order to test this hypothesis, we evaluated 46 children, 21 with Legg–Calvé–Perthes disease (LCP; 7.2±1.8 years old) and 25 with developmental dysplasia of the hip joint (DDH; 10±5 months of age), submitted to immobilization for up to 16 weeks. These two conditions(More)
PURPOSE To present the first technical description of a modified surgical technique for trapezoidal bony correction of the femoral neck in the treatment of slipped capital femoral epiphysis (SCFE), performed entirely by arthroscopy. METHODS From December 2005 to January 2008, 5 patients with severe SCFE underwent trapezoidal femoral neck bone correction(More)
Complication rates after the treatment of slipped capital femoral epiphysis (SCFE) were retrospectively evaluated to identify possible risk factors. Twenty-six patients with SCFE underwent reduction and fixation with a single screw or multiple wires. The prevalence of avascular necrosis (AVN) of the hip or chondrolysis was 14.8 and 3.6%, respectively. The(More)
Between 1988 and 2003, 23 patients with paralytic calcaneus-valgus feet were submitted to the Westin procedure and 17 patients (25 feet) were re-evaluated. Nine patients were male and eight were female. The mean age at the surgical procedure was 8±5 years. The aetiology of paralysis was sequelae of poliomyelitis in 6 patients (8 feet) and of(More)
OBJECTIVE To identify anatomical changes and skeletal maturity through radiographic analysis, allowing more accuracy for indication of surgical management of non-slipped hips in patients with epiphysiolisys. METHOD A retrospective study of the radiographs of 61 patients followed until the end of skeletal growth, assigned to two groups: 37 patients with(More)
Calcinosis universalis is characterized by the deposit of calcium salts in skin, subcutaneous tissue, tendons and muscles. Most cases become apparent during the first decade of life. Clinical aspects may vary from arthralgia to movement limitation, with calcification of soft tissues. Differential diagnosis should exclude fibrodysplasia ossificans(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the radiographic correction and the complications in Southwick osteotomy for slipped capital femoral epiphysis (SCFE) on the basis of radiographic evaluation. We retrospectively analyzed the charts of 37 patients with chronic, unilateral, moderate, or severe SCFE, who underwent the procedure, verifying Southwick angles,(More)
CONTEXT AND OBJECTIVE Femoral fractures are common in children between 2 and 12 years of age, and 75% of the lesions affect the femoral shaft. Traction followed by a plaster cast is universally accepted as conservative treatment. However, in some situations, a surgical approach is recommended. The objective here was to compare treatments for femoral shaft(More)
OBJECTIVE To know the morbid-mortality following an osteoporotic hip fracture in elderly patients living in São Paulo. PATIENTS AND METHODS This study evaluated prospectively all patient over 60 years admitted in 2 school-hospitals in the city of São Paulo in a following 6-month period due to a osteoporotic proximal femur fracture. All of them filled up(More)
Southwick's angles measured in the anteroposterior and Lauenstein frog-leg views have been used for planning surgical treatment of deformities caused by slipped capital femoral epiphysis (SCFE). Clinically established epiphysiolysis is associated with a decrease in anteroposterior angles and an increase in Lauenstein angles. Obesity is one of the factors(More)
