STUDY DESIGN Case report. OBJECTIVE To describe the radiographic features and management of spinal brown tumor and to document tumor mineralization after parathyroidectomy. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA Brown tumors are classic skeletal manifestations of hyperparathyroidism usually seen in severe forms. They are increasingly rare because(More)
Hip instability after total hip replacement has been shown to be a critical cause of failure. The use of dual mobility has been classically restricted to patients "at risk", over 70 years of age. The question rises up about extended indications of so-called "modern" second generation dual mobility cups. This prospective multicenter study reports on first(More)
We retrospectively reviewed the charts of 29 patients younger than 65 years at surgery treated with deltoid flap reconstruction for massive postero-superior rotator cuff tears. All tears involved supraspinatus and infraspinatus tendons and were associated with tendon stump retraction to the glenoid rim, a preservable long biceps tendon, and an intact(More)
BACKGROUND Iliopsoas impingement is a recurrent complication following THA, caused by muscle friction against a protrusive prosthetic cup.This study was designed to quantify the dimensional variations in acetabular rim profiles, with particular regard to the iliopubic valley, in order to suggest means to prevent iliopsoas impingement. MATERIAL AND METHODS(More)
INTRODUCTION Cemented versions of dual-mobility cups (DMCs), helpful in cases of bone stock alteration, are usually used in association with a reinforcement device. To simplify the intervention in elderly subjects or those with a poor bone stock, the cups can be cemented directly into the bone, but the long-term result remains uncertain. We conducted a(More)
BACKGROUND The success of Total Shoulder Arthroplasty (TSA) is believed to depend on the restoration of the natural anatomy of the joint and a key development has been the introduction of modular humeral components to more accurately restore the patient's anatomy. However, there are no peer-reviewed studies that have reported the degree of glenoid component(More)
Despite the curvaceous profile of the acetabulum, orthopaedic surgeons have continued to implant hemispheric cups since the introduction of total hip arthroplasty. The geometric discrepancies between the natural acetabulum and implant can result in painful iliopsoas impingement attributable to prosthetic overlap at the anterior acetabular ridge over which(More)
BACKGROUND Total hip arthroplasty (THA) for intracapsular neck of femur (NOF) fracture remains debatable as it is associated with higher rates of dislocation, notably in the older part of the population. We hypothesized this risk could be limited using dual-mobility cups (DMCs). METHODS Eighty-two patients (83 hips) aged older than 75 years underwent(More)
UNLABELLED Closed-wedge valgus high tibial osteotomy (HTO) has been reported to be an effective procedure for the treatment of medial compartment osteoarthritis of the knee. It requires shortening the fibula, for which many techniques have been described. Dislocation of the proximal tibiofibular joint limits the correction angle of the procedure and the(More)
