Pectoralis major to scapula transfer for patients with serratus anterior palsy.
TLDR
This work has shown that scapulothoracic stability is of utmost importance for shoulder function inasmuch as it offers a stable base for arm motion--mostly forward flexion. Expand
Results of open reduction and internal fixation of severe fractures of the proximal humerus in elderly patients☆☆☆
TLDR
The anatomical reduction of the fracture was found to be important for obtaining good results and open reduction and internal fixation of FGEPU may also be indicated for elderly patients. Expand
Corrective Osteotomy After Damage of the Distal Radial Physis in Children: Surgical Technique and Results
TLDR
The use of fixation systems for the radius allows radius lengthening adjusted to demand after osteotomy, using the combination of the plate and distal locking pins as spacer and custom-sized tricortical iliac crest grafting within the defect. Expand
Update on open reduction and internal fixation of unstable pelvic fractures during pregnancy: case reports☆
TLDR
In complex cases such as those presented in the present study, pre-, peri-, and postoperative care are mandatory, as well as the presence of a multidisciplinary team. Expand
Radiographic Evaluation of the Consolidation of Humerus Surgical Neck Fractures Treated With Percutaneous Fixation *
TLDR
The present study allows us to consider the percutaneous fixation technique with threaded pins as an alternative in the authors' therapeutic arsenal for the proximal humerus fracture of the surgical neck. Expand
OSTEOTOMY OF THE DISTAL RADIUS USING A FIXED-ANGLE VOLAR PLATE
TLDR
Use of a fixed-angle volar plate for a volar approach towards osteotomy of the distal radius enables satisfactory correction of the deformities and eliminates the need for removal of the synthesis material caused by tendon complications. Expand
Do patients lose weight after total hip arthroplasty?☆☆☆
TLDR
The improvement in mobility achieved through THA did not promote any reduction in anthropometric measurements in the majority of the patients, suggesting that body mass index (BMI) remained unchanged in the vast majority of patients. Expand
Clinical, Laboratory and Echografic Evaluation of Patients with Deep Vein Thrombosis Following Total Knee Arthroplasty
TLDR
The incidence of DVT was 27.5%, with an increase in leg circumference being the main predictive factor (p = 0.03), and no cases of pulmonary embolism, infection, or death were observed. Expand
Comparative Evaluation of Coracoid Graft Dimensions in the Latarjet Surgery for Anterior Glenohumeral Instability *
TLDR
The coracoid graft dimensions were similar to the dimensions described in the literature regarding width, but the same was not found for length and thickness; and the 7-millimeter rule was feasible regarding the graft dimensions obtained from the authors' sample. Expand
