The authors studied 38 cases of degenerative lesions of the plantar fascia which were treated surgically between 1989 and 1999. MRI showed chronic fasciitis in eight cases and an old rupture of the plantar fascia in 30 cases. Surgical treatment, which was performed in all cases after failure of conservative treatment of several months duration, combined(More)
In literature, many controversies exist about courses and terminology of the distal medial striate artery (DMSA) or recurrent artery first described by Heubner near 1872. The purpose of this study was to define the accurate anatomy of this artery, to help the practitioners during surgery of the anterior cerebral–anterior communicating arteries (ACA–ACoA)(More)
In the current literature, there is a lack of detailed map of the origin, course and relationships of the medial tentorial artery (MTA) of Bernasconi–Cassinari often implicated in various diseases such as dural arteriovenous fistulas of the cranial base, stenotic lesions of the ICA, saccular infraclinoid intracavernous aneurysms and tentorial meningiomas.(More)
AIM To assess the extent to which bone marrow scintigraphy (BMS) makes the interpretation of leucocyte scintigraphy (LS) easier and improves its diagnostic value. METHODS Seventy-three 111In LSs, 99mTc hydroxymethylene diphosphonate bone scintigraphies (BSs) and 99mTc sulfur colloid BMSs were performed in 60 patients with suspected infection related to a(More)
PURPOSE OF THE STUDY Dislocation of the proximal tibio-fibular joint is a rare lesion generally described in athletes. In our experience, high-energy trauma in traffic accident victims was a frequent cause. Dislocation of the proximal tibio-fibular joint is generally described as anterolateral, posteromedial, superior, or subluxation. We describe an(More)
Some variations of the cerebral arterial circle of Willis, such as an inter-optic course of the anterior cerebral artery are exceedingly rare. Imaging of very rare anatomical features may be of interest. In a 67-year-old male individual, the unique precommunicating part of the left anterior cerebral artery was found to course between both optic nerves.(More)
The middle third of the clavicle is commonly involved in any injury and account for 5–10% of all fractures in adults. Although non-unions are rare, their treatment has not been well defined yet. This report describes the arterial supply of the clavicle to clarify the pathological mechanism and the surgical procedure of non-unions. This study was based on(More)
BACKGROUND The facial artery perforator flap was developed to perform more accurate reconstruction of perioral and nasal alar defects. This technique allows tailor-made reconstruction and shifting from the traditional two-stage procedure to a one-stage technique. Cadaveric studies have described the number, location, and size of facial artery perforators.(More)
Thalamic fractures of the calcaneus reveal great complexity for their pretherapeutic assessment and management. Our retrospective study of 54 fractures shows result identical to others in the literature. With re-examination, factor pain is of primary importance. Indeed, it influences directly walk, resumption of professional occupation and subjective(More)
We report three cases of gluteus medius tendon tears discovered fortuitously in patients undergoing total hip arthroplasty. The tears were not suspected from the initial clinical presentation. Sutures were possible in only one patient. Outcome of the hip arthroplasty was very good in all three patients despite lack of tendon repair in two.
