On the basis of 150 dissections the authors show that, on the back of the hand, the tendinous formations ensuring the extension of the fingers can be arranged in four groups of a least two tendons for each finger, excepting the thumb. In the little finger the group comprises a constant tendon, the extensor proper, and two variables, the common extensor and(More)
The dissection of 37 cadavers has shown that in only a third of cases, the sural nerve comes from the communication between the medial cutaneous nerve, derived from the tibial nerve, and the communicating branch of the lateral cutaneous nerve of the leg which comes from the lateral popliteal nerve. The communication is most often at the junction between the(More)
PURPOSE OF THE STUDY We reviewed, at a mean follow-up of 7.5 years, overall functional outcome, bony architecture of the humerus predisposing to anterior instability, and treatment failure after 106 Latarjet-Patte procedures performed in 102 patients (mean age 34 years). MATERIAL AND METHODS The reproducibility of computed tomographic findings was(More)
Nerve entrapment at the foot and ankle involves thin and complex anatomic structures and is underdiagnosed because clinical symptoms and electrophysiologic findings may not contribute to the diagnosis. Nerve entrapment can be secondary to acute trauma or repetitive microtrauma. The latter often results from intensive sports-related activity, inappropriate(More)
We compared the long-term function of subscapularis after the Latarjet procedure using two surgical approaches. We treated 102 patients (106 shoulders) with a mean age of 26.8 years (15 to 51) with involuntary unidirectional recurrent instability. The operation was carried out through an L-shaped incision with trans-section of the upper two-thirds of the(More)
Five patients with a large defect in the articular cartilage at the knee joint were treated by transplantation of an autogenic osteochondral fragment. The graft was harvested from the posterior portion of the ipsilateral femoral condyle in 4 cases of osteochondritis dissecans, and from the lateral third of the patella pedicled on the patellar ligament in(More)
The aims of this study were to (a) provide an accurate description of the anterior talo-fibular ligament (ATFL) multifasciculated feature by means of cadaver study, and (b) to further delineate contour and signal variations on MR images related to this feature in a group of asymptomatic subjects. After MR imaging, three cadaveric feet were frozen and cut in(More)
PURPOSE OF THE STUDY Appropriate treatment of irreparable rotator cuff tears in patients without osteoarthritic shoulder joints remains a subject of debate. Medical treatment, a substitution muscle flap, and palliative arthroscopic treatment have been proposed. Arthroscopic tenotomy of the long head of the biceps brachii is warranted because this tendon is(More)
The clinical and radiological evolution of the glenoid socket in total shoulder arthroplasty is well documented, whereas evaluation of the humeral component has received much less attention. The outcome of 40 humeral replacements performed in 39 patients was studied with a minimum follow-up of one year. There were 26 Neer prostheses, 9 Modular Shoulder(More)
