Paediatric pelvic fractures are rare lesions. In the literature still controversy exists regarding the management of these injuries. The sequelae of these types of lesions has been described. We report the management and long term outcome of 8 patients with paediatric pelvic fractures treated in our institution. Associated injuries to the Risser's growth(More)
The development of the structures in the posterolateral corner of the knee was studied in fifteen human embryos and seventeen fetuses by means of serial sections in the coronal and sagittal planes. The attachments of the lateral meniscus and fibular head to the popliteal tendon and muscle are formed during the process of cavitation that forms the bursa. The(More)
MATERIALS AND METHODS Between 1987 and 2005, 55 patients were treated operatively to correct 44 malunions and 11 nonunion of the pelvic ring. These pathologies were the consequence of a nonoperative initial treatment for 38 cases, or of an inappropriate indication, such as the use of an external fixator as the definitive treatment of an unstable pelvic(More)
OBJECTIVE To study lumbosacral junction injuries (LSJIs) associated with displaced sacral fractures. DESIGN Prospective. SETTING University hospital. PATIENTS Eighty-nine patients with pelvic fractures. INTERVENTIONS All patients underwent standard x-ray examination consisting of anteroposterior and inlet and outlet views of the injury. In 50(More)
BACKGROUND Outcome of severely injured patients is sharply influenced by the level of prehospital and hospital organization. OBJECTIVE To evaluate the impact of the re-organization of the trauma care process on the quality of care and final outcome of major trauma (ISS =/< 16) victims. SETTING the Emergency Department (ED) of a 1600 bedded tertiary care(More)
Results of the surgical treatment of 50 consecutive displaced acetabular fractures were reviewed after a minimum of 2 years and a maximum of 6 years. Twenty-five fractures were complex, and 15 were treated at > or = 3 weeks postinjury. The quality of the reduction was anatomic in 74% of the patients. The rate of osteonecrosis of the femoral head was 10%.(More)
PURPOSE To report our experience in the control of haemorrhage with the transcatheter embolisation technique. MATERIALS AND METHODS Between 1999-2001, we treated 56 patients with important pelvic trauma. Forty-two were victims of car accidents and 14 of falls from great altitudes. Twenty presented acute symptoms due to blunt pelvic trauma, with massive(More)
The femoral head fracture has become an increasingly frequent injury, usually sustained by individuals during high-energy trauma. Regardless of the type of treatment, long-term consequences, as avascular necrosis, post-traumatic arthritis, and heterotopic ossification, may complicate the clinical outcome leading to variable degree of disability. The aim of(More)
