In this article, we report using free vascularized medial femoral condyle (MFC) flaps for reconstruction of bone defects and nonunion of the hindfoot and ankle in two patients. One patient had an open calcaneal fracture and hindfoot bone defect with impaired gait due to Achilles tendon functional loss. The second patient had nonunion with a chondral defect(More)
A patient was admitted reporting tingling pain and numbness in the right hand. Neurological examination--including nerve conduction studies--diagnosed carpal tunnel syndrome. Operative carpal tunnel release was performed without complications. Four months postoperatively the otherwise healthy patient presented again due to persistent complaints, although(More)
BACKGROUND A lack of data exists on the long-term magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) findings after surgical repair of tibial plateau fractures (TPFs). We evaluated the MRI findings 13 to 31 years after surgical repair of TPFs, focusing especially on the pathological changes in the ligaments, menisci, and cartilage. METHODS Twenty-three patients with 24(More)
BACKGROUND Acute compartment syndrome (CS) of the paravertebral muscles without external trauma is rarely reported in literature. Not all of clinical symptoms for CS are applicable to the paravertebral region. CASE PRESENTATION A 30-year-old amateur rugby player was suffering from increasing back pain following exertional training specially targeting back(More)
Reverse shoulder arthroplasty (RSA) combined with latissimus dorsi transfer (LDT) is described for patients with cuff arthropathy and a combined loss of abduction and external rotation. The purpose of this systemic review was to present clinical and radiological outcomes following RSA combined with LDT. A comprehensive literature review was performed to(More)
Reverse shoulder arthroplasty (RSA) can restore active elevation in rotator-cuff-deficient shoulders. However, RSA cannot restore active external rotation. The combination of latissimus dorsi transfer with RSA has been reported to restore both active elevation and external rotation. We hypothesised that in the combined procedure, harvesting the latissimus(More)
OBJECTIVES Information about sport activity after short-stem total hip arthroplasty (THA) is scarce in the literature. We therefore aimed to evaluate the rate of return to sport after short-stem THA. METHODS We evaluated the sport pattern, rate of return to sport, activity level, extent of sport activity, and subjective rating and sense of well-being in(More)
Relapsing polychondritis (RP) is a relatively rare disorder, with a high death rate that affects cartilaginous structures. RP can be either primary or secondary as part of autoimmune syndromes. We present a case of RP in a 49-year-old man suffering from cytoplasmic antineurophil cytoplasmic antibodies (cANCA) positive vasculitis, admitted to our hospital(More)
The distally pedicled peroneus brevis muscle flap is rarely used for defect coverage in the distal lower leg. The purpose of this article was to present our clinical series and provide a review of the literature to analyze the overall complication rates and safety of this flap. In our clinical series of 10 patients undergoing reconstruction with the flap,(More)
We present a case of posterior interosseous nerve palsy after bowel surgery associated with intramuscular myxoma of the supinator muscle. The initial symptoms of swelling of the forearm made it difficult to distinguish the condition from extravasations after intravenous cannulation. The diagnosis was finally established with nerve conduction studies and MRI(More)
