A round table on proximal humeral fractures took place during the recent GECO meeting (Les Arcs, France, January 2002). This prospective multi-centre study, organised and co-ordinated by C. Schwartz and C. Cuny, is the first of its size and type compared to the world literature of the last 20 years. It aimed at being exhaustive; but could not be because of(More)
Management of bone loss in revision total hip replacement is a challenge. To eliminate any immunological or infectious problem and so to try to improve the long term results obtained with allografts the authors used synthetic ceramics as bone substitutes. Thirty-two hips with a mean follow-up of about 5.5 years (from 3 years to 8 years) were reviewed for(More)
Searching for an alternative to bone grafts in orthopedic and trauma surgery, two biphasic synthetic calcium phosphate ceramics BCP are made: the first, Eurocer 400, in granule form with a high interconnected porosity for void-filling, and the second, Eurocer 200, available in different shapes, with a good mechanical resistance in compression. Two hundred(More)
Calcium phosphate ceramics implanted in bones are integrated following a sequence of biological events which has already been described. We had the opportunity to analyze histologically some HA-ceramic samples that had been implanted in humans for various periods of time. Eight biopsies were obtained from calcium phosphate ceramics implanted in different(More)
Biocompatible calcium phosphate ceramics has been used for several years in orthopeadic surgery. We have been using two new synthetic biphasic calcium phosphate ceramics (BCP) since September 1996 for bone defect filling in any orthopaedic or trauma operation where autograft use was not possible or even wanted. The first, Eurocer 400® has 300 to 500 micron(More)
Au Cours du récent GECO (Les Arcs, Janvier 2002) s'est déroulée une Table Ronde sur les fractures de l'humérus proximal. Organisée et coordonnée par C. Schwartz (Colmar), avec l'aide de C. Cuny (Metz), ce travail prospectif et multicentrique est le premier de ce type et de cette ampleur, au vu de la littérature mondiale de ces 20 dernières années. Il se(More)
The author has studied 21 cases of bovine xeno-grafts in human orthopaedic and trauma surgery. The indications were benign tumours (filling of defects with or without structural support), osteotomies for lengthening or passive correction of the limb (support and filling of defects), tibial tubercle elevation and some trauma cases, particularly complex(More)
Management of bone loss in revision total hip replacement remains a challenge. To eliminate any immunological or infectious problem and so to try to improve the long-term results obtained with allografts, the authors used synthetic ceramics as bone substitutes since 1995. We reviewed 13 of the patients of our study, we previously reported in 2005 (Schwartz(More)
The shoulder pain has been reported as the third most common site after low back pain and knee pain, mostly caused by impingement and rotator cuff syndromes. Surgery is indicated when non-operative treatment fails and can be open and/or arthroscopic. Are Neer’s acromioplasty results still good? Are they modified when it is a professional disease (PD)? If(More)
After a bucket-handle meniscus tear, a partial meniscectomy by arthroscopy is recommended, when a meniscal suture is impossible. Short-term results of meniscectomy after bucket-handle meniscus tear, without cartilage or ligament additional injury, are mostly excellent: pain and blocking disappear, return to sports activities is possible. The aim of this(More)
