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 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)
The rare condition of scapulothoracic dissociation (STD) is characterized by a lateral displacement of the scapula from the thoracic cage following severe trauma to the scapular girdle. This study presents an analysis of five STDs. There were three supraclavicular brachial plexus palsies and two retro- and infraclavicular palsies. Recovery of elbow flexion(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)
After trans-phalanx fingertips amputations, there is usually a therapeutic problem related to the distal fragment quality. Replantation is not always possible. The aim of this study was to propose the "reposition-flap" surgical procedure as an alternative solution to various surgical strategies for distal stump coverage. It consisted in the association of a(More)
OBJECTIVES During formula 1 driving, repetitive cumulative trauma may provoke nerve disorders such as nerve compression syndrome as well as osteoligament injuries. A study based on interrogatory and clinical examination of 22 drivers was carried out during the 1998 formula 1 World Championship in order to better define the type and frequency of these(More)
