The paper presents an unusual case of internal snapping hip in an 18 year old female, due to abnormal iliopsoas tendon tension. Operative treatment with precision of the fibrous slip over the rim of the pelvis gave a very good result, with slight limitation of active hip flexion. Various opinions on the pathogenesis and treatment of this rare condition have(More)
The computerized method of bone radiographs assessment has been presented. The radiographs were taken by standard technique with the aluminum wedge on the film and known exposition parameters as energy, time and the distance between the source and the subject. Specially designed software served to evaluate the intensity of film darkening. The method may be(More)
This paper presents results of treatment of 46 consecutive patients with pseudoarthroses of the long bones treated with closed intramedullary reaming followed by intramedullary nailing. There were 22 nonunions of the tibia, 15 of the femur, 3 of the humerus and 6 of the forearm. The union occurred in 40 cases, among them in 3 of 4 treated atrophic, that(More)
