PURPOSE To assess rotator cuff rupture characteristics and evaluate healing and the functional outcome after arthroscopic repair in patients older than 70 years versus patients younger than 50 years. METHODS We conducted a multicenter, prospective, comparative study of 40 patients younger than 50 years (group A) and 40 patients older than 70 years (group(More)
The functional outcome of hemiarthroplasty in displaced proximal humeral 3- and 4-part fractures or fracture dislocations in elderly patients is frequently unpredictable and depends on the position of the prosthesis and tuberosity fixation. Reverse shoulder arthroplasty represents an alternative in elderly patients. The purpose of this study was to report(More)
Our purpose was to evaluate the influence of metallic lateralisation of the centre of rotation (COR) in reverse shoulder arthroplasty (RSA) on the incidence of scapular notching and its eventual clinical and radiological consequences. We analysed 140 RSAs with a lateralised design (Arrow, FH Orthopedics, Mulhouse, France) implanted for massive rotator cuff(More)
Repair of the quadratus pronator after osteosynthesis of the distal radius via the Henry approach is generally considered a difficult procedure. The quadratus pronator is a powerful muscle which stabilizes the distal radioulnar joint. The muscle is most often injured in association with distal fracture of the radius. Apposition osteosynthesis appears to be(More)
Between 1995 and 1997 we implanted 45 Marchetti nails. These nails were implanted for traumatic fractures in 39 patients, but also for pathologic fractures in 5 patients. Among these 39 patients, 7 were lost of view, the average age was 60 years. Among these 39 patients, 4 have got an other treatment before which failed. 10 fractures were placed D1, 8(More)
