Triple pelvic osteotomy (or triradiate osteotomy) enables a Salter innominate osteotomy to be performed in older children, or even in adults. The displacement of the acetabular fragments is made possible by a double osteotomy near the symphysis in the anterior pelvic girdle. After the age of seven to eight years, the lack of elasticity in the symphysis(More)
The etiopathogenesis of reflex sympathetic dystrophy is still undefined, and diagnosis and treatment are difficult. It is the purpose of this study to propose precise diagnostic and therapeutic criteria for post-traumatic reflex sympathetic dystrophy of the ankle and foot. Diagnosis is pre-eminently clinical. Clinical progression of the disease occurs in(More)
We report the first case of a child with recessive hereditary methemoglobinemia type II with demonstrated cerebellar atrophy. This very rare blood disorder results in mild cyanosis, profound mental and motor impairment, and movement disorders in infancy and childhood. We suggest that children with unexplained severe encephalopathy and cerebellar atrophy(More)
The Authors treated at the Physiotherapy Service of the Clinic Orthopedic in Parma, 31 patients affected by shoulder's calcific tendonpathie++ were treated with E.D.T.A. bisodium salt they were painful and showed functional restriction besides they all shared a crystal's hydroxyapatite deposition. It was considered the pain by the Scott-Huskisson(More)
A case of acute and reversible bilateral basal ganglia with thalami involvement associated with serological evidence of Mycoplasma pneumoniae infection is reported. Increased titers of immunoglobulin M antibodies against GM1 ganglioside components were found during an acute phase of neurological illness. Brain magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) showed(More)
An extremely rare muscle disorder in the pectoral region is described. It involves a musculotendinous unit which originates from the pectoralis major and inserts onto the medial epicondyle of the humerus. The authors report a case of an 11-year-old boy, affected bilaterally, who underwent surgical treatment to lengthen the chondroepitrochlearis muscle.(More)
A critical review of the surgical treatment of 65 patients with infantile fibrous dysplasia demonstrated that "circumscribed" types of the disease generally do not require surgical treatment, while "extended" types, as well as Albright's syndrome, require early surgical treatment aimed at preventing development of skeletal deformities which are difficult to(More)
The aim of the present contribution is to explore the possible surgical solution of the problem of dislocation of the hip secondary to infantile septic arthritis, particularly in the form in which the femoral head is totally destroyed. The operation of trochanteroplasty is based on transposing the intact epiphysis of the great trochanter to act as a new(More)
The results obtained in the treatment of seventeen cases of long established (more than six years) congenital dislocation of the hip are reported. They were followed up for one to five years after operation. The writers consider osteotomy to correct leg length discrepancy to be unnecessary. Triradial osteotomy of the pelvis ensures optimal epiphyseal(More)
