BACKGROUND AND IMPORTANCE 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. CLINICAL PRESENTATION In a 67-year-old male individual, the unique precommunicating part of the left anterior cerebral artery(More)
INTRODUCTION 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(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)
UNLABELLED We report outcome in eight cases of ankle arthrodesis after failure of a total ankle prosthesis. MATERIAL AND METHODS This series included eight patients, mean age 57 years (range 36-76) who had initially: post-traumatic talocrural joint degeneration (n=4), rheumatoid polyarthritis (n=3), idiopathic talocrural degeneration (n=1). Three patients(More)
PURPOSE OF THE STUDY Fracture of the radial head associated with elbow instability is infrequent. We report a retrospective series of floating Judet prostheses implanted for comminutive fractures of the radial head associated with elbow laxity caused either by dislocation or rupture of the medial collateral ligaments. MATERIAL AND METHODS The series(More)
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)
The authors report the clinical history of a patient having presented a cutaneous mucormycosis at the waning of a traumatic dilapidation post of the left lower limb. Mucormycosis is an opportunistic fungal infection due to fungi of the group of mucorales present in the environment. There are various clinical forms of the disease; it occurs generally in a(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)
The aim of this study is to describe the anterior spinal artery–Adamkiewicz artery (ASA–AKA) junction and establish a classification allowing defining the neurological risk in either thoracoabdominal aorta aneurysm treatment and in anterior or transforaminal thoracolumbar spine surgery. Fifteen spinal cords of fresh cadavers were dissected. Both lumbar(More)
The purpose of this study was to determine the biomechanical properties of the knee meniscus and to relate them to its ultrastructure. The knee joint menisci are semicircular, fibrocartilaginous structures interposed between the femoral and tibial condyles. For a long time, they were considered to be embryologic vestiges. This study describes the response(More)
