AIM The aim of the present study was to obtain long-term functional and radiographic results after a pericapsular osteotomy of the ilium (Pemberton) and a simultaneously performed derotation-varisation osteotomy of the proximal femur in children with developmental dysplasia of the hip (DDH) after the end of the maturity process. METHOD The clinical(More)
Anterior knee pain is a common problem in childhood and adolescence with a prevalence of 4-30% in regional surveys. Although different etiologic theories are discussed in a large number of published studies, most cases are probably attributed to lower extremity malalignment, muscular imbalance, or physical overactivity (or even a combination of all three).(More)
PURPOSE OF THE STUDY Clinical results of long-term follow-up after traumatic periprosthetic femur fractures and different therapies (ORIF vs. revision arthroplasty) MATERIAL AND METHODS The Visual Analog Scale (VAS), Harris-Hip-Score (HHS), Oxford-Hip-Score (OHS), Oxford-Knee-Score (OKS), Knee-Society-Score (KSS), SF-36 Questionnaire and Funktionsfragebogen(More)
Bone fragility due to osteopenia, osteoporosis or debilitating focal skeletal dysplasias is a frequent observation in the Mendelian disease Neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1). To determine the mechanisms underlying bone fragility in NF1 we analyzed two conditional mouse models, Nf1Prx1 (limb knock-out) and Nf1Col1 (osteoblast specific knock-out), as well as(More)
UNLABELLED In residual hip dysplasia periacetabular osteotomy (PAO) can improve insufficient coverage of the femoral head. It requires a broad dissection of the pelvic bones and detachment of muscle insertions, however. We have developed a modification of the Bernese periacetabular osteotomy with reduced soft tissue exposure. It uses two small skin(More)
PURPOSE In this retrospective analysis, survival time, local recurrence and rate of metastasis were appraised in patients with primary liposarcoma of the extremities depending upon the applied primary and adjuvant therapy procedures. Furthermore, we compared the representativity of histological results of the biopsy with the final histology of the resected(More)
Osteochondritis dissecans (OD) is a lesion of the subchondral bone which can result in sequestration of the osteochondral lesion. It is categorized into 4 stages, and juvenile and adult forms depending on the distal femoral physis maturity. Prognosis and treatment depends on age and stage. Prognosis is favorable in stable lesions (stage I and II) at typical(More)
Antineoplastic treatment of osteoblastic osteosarcoma in a patient with cystic fibrosis (CF) may harbor a high risk of neutropenia-associated complications, and, to the best of our knowledge, has not been previously reported. Diagnosis of CF was confirmed in a 6-week-old boy following pathological newborn screening. The patient had a stable course of CF(More)
BACKGROUND Periacetabular osteotomy (PAO) is a reliable procedure to correct the deficient acetabular coverage in hips with developmental dysplasia. It is unclear how the presence of additional femoral cam-type deformity might influence the clinical and radiographic treatment results of PAO. QUESTIONS/PURPOSES (1) Are there differences in clinical scores(More)
