We report the treatment of five cases of delayed/or nonunions of the humerous using the Seidel locking nail. Union occurred in all cases despite two distal unscrewings. Shoulder motion was pain free, with slightly restricted abduction. No subacromial impingement occurred. Elbow motion was slightly limited in extension in two elderly patients, most likely(More)
We report the 45-month results of the Bristow Latarjet procedure in 48 patients (51 shoulders), all sportsmen. At review, 87% were satisfied, 71% practiced the same sport at the same level, and 74% had good or excellent objective results. Five patients reported recurrence of dislocation, external rotation was restricted more than 10 degrees in 36%, and 31%(More)
Of a total of 35 complex fractures of the upper humeral epiphysis treated by Neer arthroplasty, 21 were evaluated at a mean of 4 years after operation. The shoulder function according to Constant was 70% of the contralateral one. The internal and external rotations were rarely symmetric. Clinical improvement was possible during the first 2 years. Late(More)
INTRODUCTION Distal femoral fractures are rare and serious. Along with traditional internal fixation, new, dedicated hardware have appeared (distal nails, locked plating). We report the results of a multicenter prospective study of these fractures treated with locked plating. HYPOTHESIS The short-term results are satisfactory and related to the type of(More)
BACKGROUND Unicondylar fractures of the distal femur are rare, complex, intra-articular fractures. The objective of this multicentre study was to assess the reduction and fixation of unicondylar fractures. HYPOTHESIS Anatomic reduction followed by strong fixation allows early rehabilitation therapy and provides good long-term outcomes. MATERIAL AND(More)
BACKGROUND The blade-plate is the earliest of the contemporary internal fixation devices introduced for distal femoral fractures. The recent development of dedicated, fixation devices has considerably limited its use. The objective of this study was to evaluate outcomes after blade-plate fixation and after fixation using other devices. HYPOTHESIS Outcomes(More)
Sacroiliac joint dislocations frequently occur in a context of high-energy polytrauma. When there is disruption of the pelvic ring, sacroiliac joint displacements are more often posterior and combine two lesions: either lesions of the pubic arch as well as the posterior arch or bilateral lesions. The case we report here lacks these two characteristics. This(More)
The authors report on two cases of bone infection due to Aeromonas hydrophila: one case in a compound fracture and the other a late infection in an implant. They confirm the rapid onset of systemic infectious disease but not the magnitude of local manifestations. The use of modern antibiotics sensitive to Aeromonas proved effective in lowering the risk of(More)
INTRODUCTION Epidemiological study of femoral fractures has been dominated by proximal fractures. Distal fracture requires equal attention for correct management. PATIENTS AND METHODS A prospective study in 12 French hospital centres between June 1st, 2011 and May 31st, 2012 recruited cases of non-pathologic distal femoral fracture in patients over 15(More)
