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)
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)
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.

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)
The purpose of this study was to present an arthroscopic stabilization technique with 4 portals for posterior instability used in 11 patients (13 shoulders). There were 7 male and 4 female patients. All patients had an arthroscopic labral suture with anchors and capsular plication with 4 portals. The follow-up period averaged 34 months. No complication or(More)
OBJECTIVES To determine (1) whether the battery of neuropsychological tests was sufficiently sensitive to find differences between symptomatic patients with Huntington's disease (HD) and clinically asymptomatic individuals carrying the HD gene (AGC) and individuals without the HD gene (NGC) and (2) whether increasing cognitive impairment is found in AGC as(More)
Mycobacterium wolinskyi, first described in 1999, is a rapidly growing mycobacterium related to the Mycobacterium smegmatis group. Only eight cases of infection due to this microorganism have been reported, including three cases of bone infection. Here, we present the first case of a joint prosthesis infection cured with the combination of surgery and(More)
We conducted a prospective, randomised study on primary total knee replacements to evaluate the effects of tourniquet use on total calculated blood loss using Gross formula, post-operative measured blood loss, operating time, need for blood transfusion, post-operative pain, analgesia requirement and knee flexion. Forty patients were operated on with the use(More)
