Patient matched instrumentation is a new operative tool in the field of total knee arthroplasty. Custom made cutting blocks are designed to perform distal femoral and tibial bone cuts according to a pre-operative planning. This study evaluates the Visionaire system of Smith & Nephew. Thirty-one patients, operated with the Visionaire technique, were compared(More)
A prospective study was undertaken to determine the clinical importance of the different carpal instabilities following dorsally displaced distal radial fractures (Colles' type). All patients were followed for 1 year and a Cooney score and X-ray evaluation were done. Nine different carpal instabilities were evaluated. Only dissociative DISI and ulnar(More)
Arthroscopic transglenoid suture of Bankart lesions was performed in 31 patients from 1988 to 1992. The diagnosis in all patients was recurrent traumatic anterior luxation, and a Bankart lesion was found in all cases. Mean time for clinical follow-up was 43 months (ranging from 25 to 76 months). A telephone review of all cases was obtained two years later.(More)
Patellofemoral dislocations are common. In cases with recurrence or residual instability, surgical intervention is usually considered. Numerous treatment protocols have been used in the past to treat patellofemoral instability secondary to patella dislocation. Reconstruction of the medial patellofemoral ligament is one of the possible options, since it was(More)
Under arthroscopic control and guided by fluoroscopy, a Trufit Plug was successfully implanted to repair an osteochondral lesion of the head of the femur. The procedure was evaluated clinically using the HOOS score and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) of the hip. The short-term (6 months) clinical results are encouraging: the HOOS score improved clearly and(More)
Arthroscopy of the shoulder has become much more common in the past decade as surgeons have developed proficiency with the arthroscope in the knee and appropriate instrumentation has been developed. In recent years arthroscopic techniques adapted to the shoulder have continued to evolve from a diagnostic to a treatment-oriented modality. It is now(More)
Arthroscopic subacromial decompression is traditionally performed through a posterolateral viewing portal and a lateral working portal. We describe the same procedure by using a posterolateral viewing portal and a posteromedial working portal. Because this portal is in the same sagittal plane as the ipsilateral acromioclavicular joint, it allows performing(More)
