In POINT X, a study designed to reflect clinical practice and patient treatment choices, 254 European patients received open-label collagenase for Dupuytren's contracture. The most severely affected joint was treated first in 74% of patients. In total, 52%, 41%, 7%, and 1% of patients selected the little, ring, middle, and index finger, respectively; 79%(More)
The aim of this study was to examine the results of different modalities applied in the treatment of 104 fresh diaphyseal fractures of the adult humerus treated in the department between January 1994 and March 1997. These results were classified according to the criteria described by Stewart and Hundley. 32 patients (30.8%) were treated non-operatively(More)

PURPOSE OF THE STUDY Evaluate outcome of different techniques used for radial nerve repair after humeral shaft fractures. Identify situations where nerve exploration is required or inversely unneeded. Evaluate the risk of more systematic nerve exploration in case of radial nerve palsy. MATERIAL AND METHODS Over a 10 year period, we cared for 62 patients(More)
The authors report a cases of scaphoid fracture secondary to an intraosseous cyst in a young patient performing a high-risk sport. Intraosseous synovial cyst is a frequent and usually asymptomatic disease. Its aetiology remains controversial. No cases of fracture have been previously described. Our patient may have presented several risk factors for(More)
INTRODUCTION A choice of surgical techniques of treatment for trapeziometacarpal (TMC) Osteo-Arthritis (OA) have been described. Total arthroplasty is often used, especially in France. Many papers have been published, presenting various prostheses. In English literature, this device is not thoroughly used. MATERIALS AND METHODS [corrected] Guepar total(More)
The effects of a collagen membrane and a technique of autologous vein wrapping on scar formation after peripheral nerve suture are investigated. Forty-eight sciatic nerves from Wistar rats were transected and repaired, then allocated to a control group C (n=16) and two experimental groups: in group A (n=16) the repair line was covered by the collagen(More)
PURPOSE OF THE STUDY Fractures of the proximal humerus are increasingly frequent. Conservative treatment is most often proposed, but surgery must be performed when the displacement is significant and/or when the fracture is unstable. Osteoporosois and comminution are two essential elements for deciding on the surgical technique. MATERIAL AND METHODS This(More)
