A system has been developed that allows the surgeon to match a prosthesis to any femoral cavity. The surgeon may choose how and where it will preferentially fit. The surgeon does not have to create a cavity to suit a premade prosthesis. The system is based on a novel technique for making a mold of the prepared femoral cavity. This is accurately and(More)
Tarsometatarsal fracture-dislocation is an uncommon but severe lesion. Since this diagnosis is over-looked in about 20% of cases, accurate radiographic examination is imperative. In the presence of suggestive clinical signs and negative standard roentgenograms, stress-films in eversion-pronation and inversion-supination are obtained under general(More)
Sternocostoclavicular hyperostosis (SCCH) or intersternocostoclavicular ossification is a recently recognized disorder of unknown origin. SCCH is characterized by painful, condensing hypertrophy of the sternum, both clavicles, and the upper ribs. Since its original description by Sonozaki in 1974, approximately 40 cases have been reported, mainly in the(More)
Obscure hindfoot disorders are often classified under the heading of sinus tarsi syndrome (STS). The diagnosis of STS is based upon subjective symptoms: tenderness over the lateral aperture of the sinus tarsi and hindfoot instability. Arthrography of the posterior subtalar joint is an objective parameter, identifying peri- or intraarticular pathology as the(More)
Early subsidence >1.5 mm is considered to be a predictive factor for later aseptic loosening of the femoral component following total hip arthroplasty (THA). The aim of this study was to assess five-year subsidence rates of the cementless hydroxyapatite-coated twinSys stem (Mathys Ltd., Bettlach, Switzerland).This prospective single-surgeon series examined(More)
The tarsal tunnel syndrome is a complex entity. The condition results from a compression of the posterior tibial nerve, either at its terminal or collateral branches, at the tibio-astragalo-calcaneal canal of Richet. A retrospective study of 27 consecutive cases, treated by epi- or perineural neurolysis, illustrates the variability of the clinical picture(More)
