BACKGROUND Successful treatment of intertrochanteric femoral fractures was reportedly influenced by the position of the fixation devices, by reduction quality and by fracture type. METHODS The records of 227 patients with intertrochanteric fractures treated by intramedullary hip screws were analysed retrospectively. The angle and distance from the femur(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare the reduction quality, surgery time, and early postoperative complications between the 2 following surgical approaches: the ilioinguinal and the anterior intrapelvic (AIP or modified Rives-Stoppa). DESIGN Retrospective study. PATIENTS Comparison of 122 patients operated in our center between 1996 and 2003 with the ilioinguinal(More)
OBJECTIVE To describe a novel classification method for knee osteoarthritis (OA) based on spatiotemporal gait analysis. METHODS Gait analysis was initially performed on 2911 knee OA patients. Females and males were analyzed separately because of the influence of body height on spatiotemporal parameters. The analysis included the three stages of(More)
Background: Unstable pertrochanter femur fractures are common in orthopedic practice. They pose a surgical challenge in both reduction and fixation. The fixation devices used are based on hip intramedullary nailing with femur head lag screw or blade. The aim of this paper is to compare different types of unstable pertrochanter fractures.

To assess the contribution of contrast material in detecting and evaluating enthesitis of pelvic entheses by MRI. Sixty-seven hip or pelvic 1.5-T MRIs (30:37 male:female, mean age: 53 years) were retrospectively evaluated for the presence of hamstring and gluteus medius (GM) enthesitis by two readers (a resident and an experienced radiologist). Short tau(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to evaluate the natural progression of bridging osteophyte formation in diffuse idiopathic skeletal hyperostosis (DISH) on CT by a newly proposed scoring system. METHODS CT examinations of the thoracic/lumbar spine of DISH patients (Resnick criteria) obtained at two or more time points within a minimum of 3 years were(More)
Posterior malleolus fractures vary in morphology. A computed tomography scan is imperative to evaluate fragment size, comminution, articular impaction, and syndesmotic disruption. Despite an increasing body of literature regarding posterior malleolus fractures, many questions remain unanswered. Although, historically, fragment size guided surgical fixation,(More)
BACKGROUND Nonaccidental pediatric injuries are major cause of morbidity and mortality, with fractures being second to soft-tissue injuries as the most common presentation. As the orthopedic surgeon might be the only physician an abused child would encounter, the role of the orthopedic surgeon is of great importance. It includes recognition, treatment, and(More)
OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study was to compare the postoperative radiologic and clinical outcomes of telescopic femur neck screws and small locking plate device (Targon FN) (group 1) with multiple cancellous screws (group 2) for displaced intracapsular femoral neck fractures. DESIGN Comparison of a prospective collected data to a historical control(More)
