OBJECTIVES The purpose of this retrospective study was to report the results of surgery in painful post-traumatic neuromas of the digital nerves treated by collagen conduits after excision of the neuromas, when two stumps were available. METHODS We retrospectively reviewed all patients operated on for painful neuroma in our institution and having(More)
For several years, digitized small radiographs are used to measure Cobb angle in idiopathic scoliosis. The interobserver and intraobserver Cobb angle measurement variability associated with small radiographs were compared with measurement variability associated with the long-cassette radiographs. Twenty adolescent patients with a double major idiopathic(More)
Some authors recommend using an antirotation wire when performing percutaneous screw fixation of acute non-displaced scaphoid waist fractures. The aim of this study of 21 cadaveric wrists was to assess the usefulness of such a wire in Herbert's B2-type fractures. A B2-type fracture was created experimentally on each scaphoid. An antirotation wire was(More)

PATIENTS AND METHODS We carried out a retrospective study of 15 patients with locked MCP joint of long fingers, all(More)
PURPOSE Unstable slipped capital femoral epiphysis is rare, but is frequently associated with avascular necrosis. The rapid and complete reduction of the epiphysis displacement was shown to be responsible for this complication. We present the preliminary results of a progressive reduction technique of epiphysis displacement. METHODS A total of 11 patients(More)
INTRODUCTION It was commonly considered that a non-displaced or minimally displaced isolated scaphoid fracture was mechanically incompatible with a lesion of the scapholunate ligament (SL). However, some authors who described such an association have recently challenged this statement. The aim of this prospective study was to determine, after screw fixation(More)
