STUDY DESIGN Retrospective analysis of a case series. PATIENTS Twenty-two patients, including 11 children less than 8-year-old and with a body weight under 20 kg,… (More)
In 1899, Robert Gersuny, an austrian surgeon from Vienna, injected a mineral oil (vaseline) to correct the absence of a testicle in a patient who was castrated for tuberculous epididymitis. The immediate success of the operation encouraged him to use vaseline as filler for soft tissue defects. The principle of the technique consisted in the injection of a… (More)
Non-melanomatous malignant skin tumors of the hand are the same as those observed on other parts of the body, but with specific characteristics of frequency, aetiology, site and sometimes misleading clinical features. The author analyses these characteristics in relation to precancerous tumors: solar keratoses, arsenical keratoses, radiation dermatitis,… (More)
Almost all anatomical structures of the hand have been held responsible for non-traumatic, non-paralytic flexion deformity of the proximal interphalangeal joint. Together with Millesi and Flatt, we define camptodactyly as a disorder of flexor-extensor equilibrium in the PIP. This definition determined our therapeutic approach. 59 patients with one or… (More)
The history of aesthetic surgery is linked to that of the 20th century. The first operations allowed by the progress of anesthesia and asepsis are the correction of "prominent ears" by Ely then rhinoplasty with endonasal incision by Roe. Considered by some as a precursor and a quack by others, C.C. Miller was the first surgeon to specialize and write books… (More)
We attempt to identify all microlensing parallax events for which the parallax fit improves ∆χ 2 > 100 relative to a standard microlensing model. We outline a procedure to identify three types of discrete degeneracies (including a new one that we dub the " ecliptic degeneracy ") and find many new degenerate solutions in 16 previously published and 6… (More)
In the light of the international literature over the last ten years, the author reviews the surgical treatment of syndactyly, including the optimal age of operation, surgical treatment without grafts, treatment of digital extremities, prevention of commissural retraction, and long-term results.
