PURPOSE Arthralgia is an adverse class effect of aromatase inhibitors (AIs). To date, its exact mechanism remains unclear. The purpose of this study was to investigate the changes in clinical rheumatologic features and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of hands and wrists in AI and tamoxifen users. PATIENTS AND METHODS This is a prospective single-center(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the results of open reduction and ulnar osteotomy on missed Monteggia fractures in children. DESIGN Retrospective review. SETTING Tertiary care center orthopaedic hospital in Pellenberg, Belgium. PATIENTS/PARTICIPANTS Six children between 2 and 6 years old who sustained a Monteggia fracture that was initially missed were treated(More)
BACKGROUND Our preliminary results showed that tenosynovial changes and decrease in grip strength are associated with the aromatase inhibitor-induced musculoskeletal syndrome (AIMSS). Here, we report the final results and assess the relationship between grip strength and body mass index (BMI). PATIENTS AND METHODS We conducted a prospective study(More)
We retrospectively reviewed 37 cases of resection of the olecranon bursa and noted wound healing problems in 10 (27%) and recurrence in 8 (22%). A lateral arm flap was necessary in one patient. Conservative treatment remains the treatment of choice for olecranon bursitis. Differentiation between septic and non-septic cases is challenging. The risk of wound(More)
The results of partial medial epicondylectomy for cubital tunnel syndrome were evaluated in 60 elbows of 54 patients. Preoperatively, 8 patients were grade I, 24 grade IIA, 16 grade IIB, and 12 grade III according to the modified McGowan score (Goldberg BJ et al. JHand Surg [Am] 1989;14:182-8). Mean follow-up was 38.8 months. Special emphasis was placed on(More)
A survey of 43 cemented arthroplasties of the trapeziometacarpal joint with a la Caffinière prosthesis in 40 patients is presented. A 70% patient satisfaction rate was obtained, with a mean DASH score of 24.2. Good range of motion was preserved (opposition 9/10 on Kapandji's scale) and gripping force as well as key pinch force increased from 18 kg to 24 kg(More)
Neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1) is a common disorder that arises secondary to mutations in the tumor suppressor gene NF1. Glomus tumors are small, benign but painful tumors that originate from the glomus body, a thermoregulatory shunt concentrated in the fingers and toes. We report 11 individuals with NF1 who harbored 20 glomus tumors of the fingers and 1 in(More)
Sclerosing perineurioma is a recently described variant of perineurioma that characteristically occurs in the fingers and palms of young adults. We report a cutaneous sclerosing perineurioma with preservation of the axons and Schwann cells in the center of the whorls of perineurial cells, a feature that previously was reported to be typically absent in(More)
This retrospective study assessed the outcomes of 21 patients (16 male and 5 female, mean age 39 years) with advanced Kienbock's disease treated by resection of the proximal carpal row. They were clinically reviewed. The mean follow-up was 67 months, with all but two patients having had a follow-up of 2 years. No or mild pain was being experienced by 13(More)
