Posterior shoulder dislocation is a rare event that may occur after a direct trauma, an epileptic seizure, electric shock or electroconvulsive therapy. In more than 50% of the cases, posterior dislocations are missed on initial evaluation and often misdiagnosed as frozen shoulders with unfortunate consequences. We present the case of a missed posterior(More)
PURPOSE The optimal surgical treatment of displaced type B and C fractures of the proximal humerus in the elderly remains controversial. Good clinical results have been reported by plating these fractures as well as a high rate of complications. Our retrospective study aims to evaluate clinical recovery and complications using the S3 locking plate in(More)
Radial head excision has always been a safe commonly used surgical procedure with a satisfactory clinical outcome for isolated comminuted radial head fractures. However, diagnosis of elbow instability is still very challenging and often underestimated in routine orthopaedic evaluation. We present the case of a 21-years old female treated with excision after(More)
Fracture of bilateral capitulum humeri is a very rare injury. We present a case of a 38-year-old woman, affected by a shear fracture of bilateral capitellum after a motorcycle accident. Intervention was carried out through a lateral approach on both sides and direct fixation of the fragment with headless screws. Consolidation was achieved and no signs of(More)
OBJECTIVE The anterolateral approach to the tibia has been popularized for the management of tibial pilon fractures. For complex fracture patterns a combined anterolateral/anteromedial approach is suitable but a high rate of complication has been reported. In our retrospective study a two-choice strategy adopting a medial tibial approach was proposed for(More)
We present a 42-years-old male who developed a radial shaft pseudoartrosis and a chronic DRUJ dislocation/instability, following a Galeazzi fracture. He presented to our Office with a severe inability of wrist and forearm motion. A Sauve'-Kapandji procedure was adopted, performing a lateral approach to the ulna and grafting the excised ulnar block to(More)
