Periprosthetic fractures around the shoulder and elbow are rare and are often difficult to treat. Treatment options depend on the stability of the prosthesis, the location of the fracture, and the bone quality. The basic principles of treatment are that loose or unstable prostheses are removed and revised to a longer prosthesis with the possible addition of(More)
Biomaterial science has lead to the development of a variety of foldable intraocular lens (IOL) biomaterials. This literature review examines these lenses from both a basic science and a clinical perspective. By most parameters, hydrogel, soft acrylic and silicone IOL are better than polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) lenses. Plate haptic silicone IOL have the(More)
BACKGROUND Fibrosis of the esophageal lamina propria is a known complication of eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE). To date, therapy with topical corticosteroids has been shown to reverse esophageal fibrosis in some patients; however, there is little evidence to suggest that dietary therapy can also reverse it. Our aim was to examine whether dietary therapy(More)
BACKGROUND Syndesmotic injuries occur in up to 11% of all ankle injuries. Whereas the optimal fixation of syndesmotic injuries remains controversial, pitfalls in their management can lead to poor outcomes. MATERIALS AND METHODS This is a retrospective study of all ankle fractures operated on at a level 1 trauma center over a 7-year period. All cases with(More)
220 distal hypospadias have been operated over a period of 10 years: 53 glandular, 144 coronal and 23 anterior penile subcoronal hypospadias with no chordee. Although with 131 MAGPI procedures we had only 3 urethral complications (one fistula, one total and one partial disunion), it does not seem to be a well adapted procedure for the correction of coronal(More)
