INTRODUCTION Shoulder surgery is often performed with the patient in the so called "beach-chair position" with elevation of the upper part of the body. The anesthetic procedure can be general anesthesia and/or regional block, usually interscalenic brachial plexus block. We present a case of brachial plexus palsy with a possible mechanism of traction based… (More)
We report a case of a 28-year-old male who sustained an indirect injury of his left hip while playing soccer, which resulted in a posterior fracture-dislocation. Radiological examination showed signs of combined femoroacetabular impingement (FAI). We discuss the role of FAI as a risk factor for hip dislocation in low energy sport injuries.
Extrarticular causes of impingement have a current, interesting role in the complaint of groin pain in athletes. Subspine impingement is related to a prominent anterior inferior iliac spine (AIIS) and is actually described as a frequent cause of groin pain. Ischiofemoral impingement is described when the space between the lesser trochanter is decreased.… (More)
We report a case of a very large intraosseous ganglion in a patient with Down's syndrome. The lesion was located in the medial femoral condyle and was diagnosed with imaging techniques (X-rays, CAT scan, bone scan and magnetic resonance imaging) that allowed measuring it. Treatment consisted of curettage and filling of the defect with the skeletal repair… (More)
INTRODUCTION Failed hip arthroplasty with intrapelvic acetabular migration can be challenging due to the potential damage of intrapelvic structures. PRESENTATION OF THE CASE We present a case of a 75 year-old lady with failed hip arthroplasty with loosening of implants and intra-pelvic migration of the cup, antiprotrusio cage mesh, screws and plate. A… (More)
Case report of an 89-year-old patient who had cardiorespiratory arrest during cemented hip hemiarthroplasty and required cardiopulmonary resuscitation. This complication occurred immediately after using the carbon dioxide-based lavage system known as CarboJet and was attributed to gas embolism once other entities were ruled out. The possible factors that… (More)
