The purpose of this study was to determine, during anterior plating of the distal radius, the length of a screw above which there is a risk for the extensor tendons and the optimal shape of an anterior plate. It was also to determine the projection of the axis of the distal third of the radius on the distal articular surface in case of wrist arthroplasty in(More)
Hypertonia of the upper limb due to spasticity causes pronation of the forearm and flexion of wrist and fingers. Nowadays this spasticity is often treated with injections of botulinum toxin and sometimes with selective fascicular neurotomy. To correctly perform this microsurgical technique, it is necessary to get precise knowledge of the extramuscular nerve(More)
OBJECTIVES To describe morphologic abnormalities and signs of patellar lateral femoral friction syndrome (PLFFS) detected by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). MATERIALS AND METHODS Prospective study of 56 knees (21 patients and 30 controls) studied by 3Tesla MRI. Comparative analysis of clinical data, quantitative and qualitative imaging criteria in a(More)
Neurogenic lower urinary tract dysfunction is frequent, due to lesions of the central and/or peripheral somatic and/or autonomic nervous system whose role is to ensure the regulation and control of lower urinary tract function. Due to the presence of both smooth and striated muscle cells in structures of the lower urinary tract, nerve pathways and nerve(More)
Wolbachia pipientis is the most common bacterial infection in the animal world and wields a vast influence on invertebrate reproduction, sex determination, speciation, and behavior worldwide. These avenues of research have made seminal gains, including the latest use of Wolbachia to alter mosquito populations and a strengthened focus on using anti-Wolbachia(More)
Despite the widespread use of measured real-world materials, intuitive tools for editing measured reflectance datasets are still lacking. We present a solution inspired by natural image matting and texture synthesis to the <i>material matting</i> problem, which allows separating a measured spatially-varying material into simpler foreground and background(More)
INTRODUCTION Comminuted fractures of the proximal ulna are severe injuries often associated with bone and ligament injuries of the elbow joint (Monteggia lesion, radial head fractures, dislocation of the elbow). The treatment of these fractures is very demanding and the functional results often fairly mediocre due to associated injuries. Based on a(More)
One case of isolated traumatic dislocation of the radial head in a 59-years-old female secondary to an injury in pronation and extension of the non dominant left elbow is reported. Treatment consisted of immediate closed reduction followed by immobilisation in a plaster cast with the elbow flexed at 110 degrees, for 10 days. An MRI scan 2 months after the(More)
In a growing elderly osteoporotic population, the management of distal radius fractures remains without consensus as to volar distal plate versus K-wires. The goal of this retrospective study was to evaluate these treatments in elderly people. In a series of 38 patients over 70 years, 21 were treated by a volar plate and 17 by percutaneous K-wire fixation.(More)
In patients for whom function is a priority, anatomic reduction and stable fixation are prerequisites for good outcomes. Several therapeutic options exist, including orthopedic treatment and internal fixation with pins (intra- and extrafocal), external fixation which may or may not bridge the wrist, and different internal fixation techniques with dorsal or(More)
