BACKGROUND Dysplasia epiphysealis hemimelica (DEH) is a rare developmental bone disorder with hemimelic involvement of one or more epiphysis. We report on nine new cases and discuss the clinical manifestations, the value of MRI, and the results of complete and early surgical resection of these lesions. MATERIALS AND METHODS In this retrospective study,(More)
UNLABELLED Chronic recurrent multifocal osteitis (OCRM) is a rare condition in children, of unknown aetiology, which may be misdiagnosed as osteomyelitis, arthritis or tumour. PATIENTS AND METHODS We present a retrospective multicentric study of 17 patients (five boys and 12 girls) with an average follow-up of 7.5 years (six months-25 years). RESULTS A(More)
INTRODUCTION Despite the long experience of radiologists, pathologists and orthopaedists with aneurysmal bone cysts (ABC), there is limited knowledge regarding the cause of the lesion and the optimal treatment. The pathogenesis of ABC remains unclear with theories ranging from a post-traumatic, reactive vascular malformation to genetically predisposed bone(More)
The management of aneurysmal bone cyst depends on the age of the patient, the location, extent, aggressiveness and the size of the lesion. In the light of their experience and a review of the literature of 1256 aneurysmal bone cysts, the authors analyzed various treatment modalities. Inactive lesions can heal with biopsy or curettage alone. In active or(More)
Some authors have reported that the clinical and pathologic behaviour of aneurysmal bone cysts (ABCs) is more aggressive in younger patients and that younger patients have more tumour recurrence. The authors carried out a retrospective, multicentred paediatric population-based analysis of 21 patients (14 boys and seven girls), 5 years of age or younger,(More)
The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of different methods of backpack carrying on gait kinetics in children, using a new treadmill that allowed three-dimensional measurement of right and left leg ground reaction forces (GRFs). Forty-one healthy children, with a mean age of 12 years, participated in this study. The mean height was 152 cm and(More)
BACKGROUND Elbow instability is a common feature after medial epicondyle fractures, displaced or not, even in the absence of dislocation. Undisplaced or minimally displaced fractures often have an underestimated degree of instability secondary to unrecognised capsuloligamentous and muscular injuries. The purpose of this retrospective study was to analyze(More)
Thirty-six cases of femoral lengthening using the Albizzia nail were performed. The indication for lengthening was a congenital malformation, sequellae of trauma, of infection, of radiation therapy, short stature, and vascular malformation. The mean age of the patients was 16 years, the average lengthening achieved was 4.7 cm, and the follow-up period(More)
The purpose of this study was to review the demographic data of children and adolescents with aneurysmal bone cysts (ABCs). The authors performed a retrospective, multicenter, pediatric population-based analysis of 156 patients with primary ABCs. Only patients with histologic confirmation of the diagnosis were included. A review of French and English(More)
We report the case of a patient with occipital condyle fracture who was neurologically intact. The patient was treated conservatively with a neck collar, and the symptoms resolved in 3 months. This diagnosis can be suspected in high-velocity road traffic accidents, in a patient with neck pain, disproportionate torticollis, or lower cranial nerve symptoms.(More)
