To determine if it is possible to measure glenoid bone loss by using the Bernageau view and to compare it to a 3D CT scan. Fifty healthy subjects with a mean age of 34 ± 8 years old and 31 (62 %) male were submitted to the Bernageau view X-ray of both shoulders. Three blinded evaluators measured the distance between the posterior and anterior glenoid rim.(More)
OBJECTIVE To report the initial results from the use of a new technique for fixation of bone grafts in uncontained tibial bone defects in patients undergoing total knee prosthesis implantation. METHODS Six patients with severe varus deformity of the knee who, after cuts and ligament balancing had been performed, still presented bone deficiencies that(More)
Complex fractures of the lateral tibial plateau may extend to the posterior rim of the knee and to the tibial spines. Displaced fractures of the posterolateral corner of the tibial plateau may result in joint incongruity and instability, especially with the knee in flexion. Anatomical reduction of the joint surface and containment of the tibial rim are the(More)
Bone is a unique tissue because of its mechanical properties, ability for self-repair, and enrollment in different metabolic processes such as calcium homeostasis and hematopoietic cell production. Bone barely tolerates deformation and tends to fail when overloaded. Fracture healing is a complex process that in particular cases is impaired. Osteoprogenitor(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the clinical and functional outcomes from arthroscopic repairs on small and medium-sized tears of the supraspinatus muscle tendon. METHODS 129 cases of isolated small and medium tears of the supraspinatus muscle tendon were evaluated retrospectively. The average duration of pain was 29 months. The average joint range of motion(More)
UNLABELLED To evaluate, under microscopic examination, the structural changes displayed by the trabecular and cortical bones after being processed chemically and sterilized by ethylene oxide. METHODS Samples of cancellous and cortical bones obtained from young female albinus rats (Wistar) were assigned to four groups according to the type of treatment:(More)
