PURPOSE OF THE STUDY To assess the results of Steel triple osteotomy on Developmental hip displacement (DDH) and Legg-Calvé-Perthes Disease (LCPD) cases utilising objective criteria based on measurements. All measurements were done by a co-author in a blind way. What concerns DDH, triple osteotomy was used in all cases in which authors felt to obtain a(More)
PURPOSE OF THE STUDY The aim of the study was to demonstrate the outcomes of video-assisted tenotomy of the gastrocnemius and soleus muscles in children with the spastic form of cerebral palsy. MATERIAL In the period from September 2003 to March 2004, 18 lower extremities in 14 patients were operated on.A set for endoscopic plastic surgery with a 4-mm(More)
The authors discuss the diagnostic and prognostic problem of chronic recurrent osteomyelitis (CRMO) described for the first time in 1972 by Giedione. This relatively rare disease of unknown origin is characterized by a slow onset with oedema and pain at several sites of the locomotor apparatus which occur concurrently or consecutively and are followed by(More)
The objective of the present study was to establish the efficacy and tolerability of local action transcutaneous flurbiprofen (flurbiprofen LAT) in the treatment of soft tissue lesions. A randomized, double-blind, parallel-group placebo-controlled study was carried out in two hospital outpatient rheumatology clinics. One hundred and four patients aged 18-75(More)
PURPOSE OF THE STUDY The aim of the retrospective study was to evaluate the results of 20 performed lengthenings of the humerus in children and adolescents. MATERIAL Assessment involved totally 20 lengthening procedures having been done in 18 patients, twice as a repeated procedure, in the period 1983-1999. The indication was shortening of humerus(More)
In a mass screening project, 872 neonates were examined clinically and by ultrasound. Hip joint stability was assessed in the ultrasound stress test showing a normal or physiologic instability, in the range of 0 to 2 mm. Along with the dynamic examination, a modified Graf's method was used. All obtained sonograms were submitted to careful assessment by one(More)
PURPOSE OF THE STUDY The aim of the study was to evaluate, in comparison with the pre-operative planning, the accuracy of proximal femur correction achieved with the use of locking compression paediatric hip plates (LCP) in children and adolescents and to assess pre- and post-operative complications. MATERIAL AND METHODS A group of 52 patients in whom(More)
The aim of the study was to present the results of video-assisted fractional lengthening of the triceps surae muscle and the hamstrings in children with spastic cerebral palsy. In the period from September 2003 to December 2004, triceps surae muscle contractures were treated in 35 lower extremities (22 patients) and hamstring lengthening was performed in 12(More)
PURPOSE OF THE STUDY The aim of the study was to compare the exactness of correction of proximal femoral deformities between the patients treated with AO angled blade plates and those managed by the cannulated paediatric osteotomy system (CAPOS). MATERIAL AND METHODS In the period from 1994 to 2003, corrective osteotomy of the proximal femur using the(More)
PURPOSE OF THE STUDY The aim of this retrospective study was to compare the efficacy of femoral osteotomy alone with that of osteotomy combined with an acetabular procedure in patients with unstable hips due to spastic cerebral palsy. MATERIAL Sixty-one hip joints in 50 patients who had shown distinct subluxation or dislocation of the joint were operated(More)
