INTRODUCTION The treatment of subtrochanteric fractures in the elderly remains technically challenging, due to instability and osteoporosis, with high reoperation rates. Even if intramedullary nailing is the most reliable treatment, reduction is difficult and cerclage wiring remains controversial. The purpose of this study was to evaluate 26 consecutive(More)
Trimalleolar ankle fractures can be difficult to manage and convey a high risk of long-term morbidity. The question of whether internal fixation of the posterior malleolar fragment is warranted remains open. We conducted a retrospective cohort study involving 45 patients who underwent surgical repair of a trimalleolar fracture. Our goal was to study the(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to compare the complications of the trochanteric gamma nail (TGN) and the Gamma3 Nail (G3), focusing on cutout failure. DESIGN Retrospective comparative cohort analysis. SETTING Level II Teaching Trauma Center academic trauma center. PATIENTS/METHODS Two hundred eighteen trochanteric fractures with a mean follow-up(More)
INTRODUCTION In haemophiliacs, recurrent hemarthrosis and chronic synovitis lead to chronic arthropathy. Synovectomy is indicated when medical treatment fails. Few studies report the results of open synovectomy of the ankle in haemophiliacs with a small number of procedures and also a limited follow-up. AIM The aim of this paper is to report the long-term(More)
Purpose. Tourniquet-induced nerve injuries have been reported in the literature, but even if electromyography abnormalities in knee surgery are frequent, only two cases of permanent femoral nerve palsies have been reported, both after prolonged tourniquet time. We report a case of tourniquet-related permanent femoral nerve palsy after knee surgery. Case(More)
INTRODUCTION Many studies have been conducted to determine the different effects that reaming or intramedullary nailing have on fracture healing, but there is no evidence in the literature of the effect of intramedullary reaming on osteogenesis. We performed a prospective study to analyse the effect of intramedullary reaming and nailing on the production of(More)
INTRODUCTION Ankle fractures involving a posterior malleolar fragment are associated with worse clinical outcomes. The standard indication for its fixation is a displaced fragment that involves more than 25% of the distal articular tibia. The method of reduction and fixation of these fractures has not received much attention. The purpose of this paper is to(More)
OBJECTIVE To analyse the exposure of two Orthopaedic Surgeons to ionizing radiations in their daily work, and to review the main national and international recommendations on this subject. MATERIAL AND METHODS A retrospective study was conducted on the surgical treatments that use fluoroscopy performed by two Orthopaedic Surgeons during a one year period.(More)
Only four cases of triplane distal radius fracture have been described in the literature. We report the first that has been treated with open reduction and internal fixation. A 15-year-old boy sustained a triplane fracture of the distal radius. After an unsuccessful attempt at closed reduction, open reduction and internal fixation were performed. Six months(More)
