The literature on Perthes' disease points up the significance of specific anatomical conditions affecting vascularization of the femoral head, as well as immaturity and mechanical weakening of the bone tissue in the etiology and pathogenesis of this disorder in children. An experimental study using calf femurs as models confirmed the author's hypothesis(More)
The results of operative correction of 13 cases of tibia vara in 10 children with advanced infantile Blount's disease are presented. All of the children were operated by "double-elevating" osteotomy. An essential element of this procedure was the reconstruction of the horizontal level of the medial tibial plateau. The average follow-up after treatment was 8(More)
The level of selected parameters of the coagulation system and fibrynolysis (prothrombin time, partial thromboplastin time, fibrinogen level, albumin C system, V Leiden factor and III antithrombin level) in 25 children who had been treated with Perthes disease was evaluated. In three children prolonged prothrombin time occurred; in one child anomalous(More)
We examined selected parameters of the clotting and fibrinolytic system of 26 boys with aseptic necrosis of the femoral head and then evaluated the pressure of the fluid in the cavity of the hip joint with the help of ultrasonic examination. No disturbances were discovered in the coagulation system and ultrasonography ruled out the possibility that(More)
BACKGROUND Ichthyosis Follicularis, Atrichia and Photophobia (IFAP) syndrome is a rare genodermatosis due to mutations of the MBTPS2 gene. To date fewer than 40 cases have been described in the literature. OBJECTIVES To present the first case of IFAP diagnosed in Poland due to a novel mutation of MBTPS2, and to review the relevant literature on this rare(More)
A detailed case history of a 6 years old child, including biochemical and radiological examinations, has been presented. The disease started with a commonplace contusion of the patella and rapidly progressed after arthrotomy. Dihydroxy-aluminium-natrium carbonicum was applied as well as the low calcium and phosphorus diet. After 4 weeks of treatment, the(More)
