Aneurysmal bone cyst in children: analysis of twenty-seven patients.
Although conventional radiology is useful for diagnosing ABCs, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is nevertheless the most important technique for checking the extent of the lesions and surgical procedures used to preserve the growth plate are described. Expand
Progressive Forearm Lengthening With an Intramedullary Guidewire in Children: Report of 10 Cases
The technique consisted of a transverse osteotomy and progressive distraction after intramedullary nailing and an initial axial correction osteotomy that allows an easier lengthening procedure. Expand
Measuring quality of life in cerebral palsy children..
CP children’s auto-evaluation of their quality of life using a questionnaire developed based on the patients’ and families’ opinions, in association with a participation questionnaire, seems to be the most informative method to include in outcome studies. Expand
Influence of clinical and gait analysis experience on reliability of observational gait analysis (Edinburgh Gait Score Reliability).
Visual evaluation may be used for outcome studies to explore clinical changes in CP patients over time and may be associated to other validated evaluation tools. Expand
Rotational profile of the lower limb in 1319 healthy children.
The aim was to collect a large clinical series of healthy children, out of a clinic, selected from a non-consulting population and to analyse Tibial Torsion and Femoral Anteversion according to age and gender. Expand
[Acetabular anteversion in congenital luxation of the hip].
It is concluded that acetabular anteversion must be analysed depending on the morphologic aspects of the anterior and posterior extremities of the acetabulum and iliac bone orientation in CDH. Expand
Bone lesions in histiocytosis X.
In the general visceral types, chemotherapy was effective in visceral sites and in extensions of the tumor outside the bone but did not alter the natural history of the bony lesion. Expand
[Progressive forearm lengthening in children: 14 cases].
Use of an intramedullary guide wire associated with an external fixation and an initial osteotomy for axial correction when needed and possibly stabilization of the wrist is an important contribution, particularly for malformed forearms. Expand
New procedure to remove a centrally located bone bar.
A centrally located bone bar of the lower tibia was removed after epiphyseolysis with an Ilizarov device and methylmethacrylate was used as an interpositional material. Expand
Acetabular Anteversion in Children
Acetabular anteversion analysis was performed in 143 normal children, who ranged in age from 1 to 15 years. The mean anteversion value, which remained constant during growth, was 13°.
