PURPOSE To report complications of direct fibrosing agent injection in the treatment of aneurysmal bone cysts (ABCs) in children. MATERIALS AND METHODS The authors retrospectively analyzed all cases of ABCs treated with direct fibrosing agent injection (Ethibloc; Ethnor Laboratories, Ethicon, Noderstedt, Germany) at Robert Debré Hospital since 1994.(More)
Forty-seven children with fractures of the lateral condyle were reviewed, 4 of whom were treated after a five month delay. The roentgenographic study revealed 4 different types of fractures according to the degree of displacement. Each type corresponded to precise anatomical lesions. In the treatment of recent fractures, we must distinguish between strictly(More)
Unstable degenerative spondylolisthesis of the cervical spine is very rare. Slip usually occurs at the C3 on C4 or C4 on C5 levels, immediately above a stiff lower cervical spine. There are two clinical patterns: that with neurological involvement causing cervicobrachial pain or myelopathy and that with neck pain alone. The diagnosis can be made by(More)
BACKGROUND The selection of fusion levels continues to be controversial in adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS). The classifications of King and Lenke remain the most widely used, but recent studies have demonstrated their shortcomings, including poor interobserver reproducibility. We propose a method of preoperative planning that is independent of(More)
STUDY DESIGN Retrospective study of prospectively collected data. OBJECTIVE Compare Universal Clamps (UCs) and hooks for the thoracic correction of adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS). SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA In scoliosis surgery, sagittal correction is as important as frontal correction due to the risk of junctional kyphosis. Compared to all-screw(More)
STUDY DESIGN Outcome study to determine the internal consistency, reproducibility, and concurrent validity of the French-Canadian version of the Scoliosis Research Society 22 (SRS-22 fcv) patient questionnaire in France. OBJECTIVE To determine whether the SRS-22 fcv can be used in a population from France. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA The SRS-22 has been(More)
Background. It has been reported that MRI using a dynamic gadolinium-enhanced subtraction technique can allow the early identification of ischaemia and the pattern of revascularisation in Legg-Calvé-Perthes (LCP) disease with increased spatial and contrast resolution. Therefore, dynamic gadolinium-enhanced subtraction (DGS) MRI may be a possible(More)
STUDY DESIGN A reproducibility study was conducted in preoperative and postoperative three-dimensional (3D) measurements for patients operated for adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS). OBJECTIVE To assess the reliability of preoperative and postoperative 3D reconstructions using EOS in patients operated for AIS. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA No prior(More)
INTRODUCTION Lower limb torsion varies substantially among healthy children during growth. Values reported in the literature to date have been obtained using semi-quantitative clinical or 2D measurement methods. Quantitative 3D measurement would help determine the physiological range of lower limb torsion. Low-dose stereoradiography with 3D reconstruction(More)
Kingella kingae arthritis in children is now mainly diagnosed by PCR, which has surpassed conventional culture of joint fluid. As oropharynx colonization is the first step of Kingella kingae invasion, we prospectively investigated the possibility of cultivating it from throat swabs, in children hospitalized for K. kingae arthritis. Throat culture was(More)
