STUDY DESIGN The authors evaluated preoperative modifications of the cervical spinal canal in flexion and extension in 50 patients with cervical spondylotic myelopathy (CSM) and looked for impingement of the spinal cord not diagnosed in the neutral position. OBJECTIVE To evaluate the usefulness of preoperative flexion-extension magnetic resonance imaging(More)
The anterior pelvic plane (APP) is currently used as superficial anatomical landmark for three-dimensional orientation during total hip arthroplasty (THA), specifically when using computer aided surgery. However, the actual parameter for characterizing the pelvic orientation is the sacral slope, which correlates with other functional spinal parameters. The(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE The jumping distance (JD) is the degree of lateral translation of the femoral head center required before dislocation occurs. The smaller the distance, the higher the theoretical risk of dislocation. The aim of our study was to evaluate this jumping distance and its variation according to the characteristics of the implant, and also(More)
The acetabular anteversion angle varies according to the position of the pelvis. The objective goal of our study was to investigate changes in pelvic orientation after total hip replacement for primary osteoarthritis. We studied 89 patients who underwent total hip replacement for primary unilateral osteoarthritis. Lateral pelvic X-rays that included the(More)
BACKGROUND This study compared 2- and 3-dimensional (2D and 3D) radiographic measurements of anatomical and functional leg length and knee coronal and sagittal alignments and correlated these measurements with patients' leg-length perceptions. METHODS Patients without symptomatic spinal pathology, previous surgery of the spine, and lower extremities (140(More)
Accurate evaluation of femoral offset is difficult with conventional anteroposterior (AP) X-rays. The EOS imaging system is a system that makes the acquisition of simultaneous and orthogonal AP and lateral images of the patient in the standing position possible. These two-dimensional (2D) images are equivalent to standard plane X-rays. Three-dimensional(More)
Tripolar total hip arthroplasty (THA) prosthesis had been suggested as a method to reduce the occurrence of hip dislocation and microseparation. Precisely measuring the motion of the intermediate component in vitro would provide fundamental knowledge for understanding its mechanism. The present study validates the accuracy and repeatability of a(More)
Arthrodesis using interbody cages has demonstrated high fusion rates. However, permanent cages are exposed to stress-shielding, corrosion, and may require explanation when necessary. Polylactic acid (PLA) bioresorbable cages are developed for avoiding these problems, but significant tissue reaction has been reported with 70/30 PLDLLA in some preclinical(More)
In France, about 2000 people suffer spinal cord injuries each year. Most patients are young men involved in road accidents and most have cervical lesions. Emergency pre-hospital care is crucial, as the lesions are potentially life-threatening and can have devastating functional consequences. The possibility of spinal cord trauma must always be kept in mind,(More)
