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)
Introduction Distal radial fractures represent 17% of fractures in the Italian E.R. At the University Hospital ‘‘Policlinico Umberto I’’ of Rome E.R. we have started treating these fractures with a new fixation system designed by us: the CASLAU. This system provides a nonbridging external fixation. The synthesis is guaranteed by two or more K-wires which(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)
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)
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)
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)
