Femoroacetabular impingement (FAI) has been identified as a common cause of hip pain in young adults. However, treatment is not well standardized. We retrospectively reviewed 97 patients (100 hips) who underwent osteochondroplasty of the femoral head-neck for FAI using a mini-open anterior Hueter approach with arthroscopic assistance. The mean age of the(More)
Anterior femoroacetabular impingement is a mechanical hip disorder defined as abnormal contact between the anterior acetabular rim and the proximal femur. The typical patient is a young man who practices a martial art that involves kicking. Mechanical groin pain is the main presenting symptom. Passive flexion and internal rotation of the hip replicates the(More)
Revision total hip arthroplasty through the direct anterior approach is technically challenging but offers some advantages in exposure of the acetabulum. This study presents a retrospectively reviewed consecutive series of fifty-one patients who underwent revision total hip arthroplasty through the anterior approach utilizing various extensions of this(More)
When surgically treated, pelvic-ring deformities due to post-traumatic malunions in adults usually require invasive three-stage (prone/supine/prone or supine/prone/supine) procedures. A standardised two-stage prone/supine procedure was developed by the authors. Technical points and first clinical results are presented. Malunuions related to Tile B and C(More)
Little information is provided in the literature describing an efficient reduction technique for pelvic ring disruption. The aim of this study is to assess the use of the transcondylar traction as a closed reduction technique for vertically unstable fracture-dislocations of the sacro-iliac joint. Twenty-four pelvic ring disruptions were treated with(More)
Femoroacetabular impingement (FAI) may be considered as an important cause of hip pain among young patients. A new surgical technique using a mini open anterior Hueter approach with arthroscopic assistance was developed in our department in 1999. The goal of our study was to evaluate the midterm clinical results and the quality of life after cam resection,(More)
Capsulotomy during hip arthroscopy improves the mobility of arthroscopic instruments and helps gain greater access to key areas of the hip. During the past decade, its use has expanded dramatically as the complexity of hip arthroscopy has advanced. We report a novel approach for hip arthroscopy that consists of performing an extra-articular capsulotomy(More)
Forty-nine scapulothoracic arthrodeses were done in 33 patients with facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy to improve upper limb performance during activities of daily living. Mean followup was 102 months (range, 12-257 months). An initial average increase in shoulder abduction of 25 degrees and forward elevation of 29 degrees was seen. Complications(More)
PURPOSE OF THE STUDY The cost effectiveness of trochanteric hip fractures in 1995 at Pitié-Salpétrière Hospital in Paris has been thoroughly analysed. The aim of this retrospective study was to identify the factors responsible for the variation in the treatment cost of those fractures. MATERIAL AND METHODS Cost, Hospital stay, functional status, ASA(More)
