BACKGROUND Hammertoe and claw toe are among the most common foot deformities. Proximal interphalangeal (PIP) joint realignment can be performed using specifically designed intramedullary implants. The aim of this study was to assess the clinical outcome of patients with lesser toes deformities undergoing PIP joint realignment using an intramedullary(More)
Twenty eight patients with advanced carpal collapse (20 with scapho-lunate advanced collapse [SLAC] and 8 with scaphoid-nonunion advanced collapse [SNAC]) who were treated with a four-corner arthrodesis were reviewed; 23 had a good or excellent outcome. The mean DASH score was 41. The flexion/extension arc decreased from 72 degrees to 52 degrees. Gripping(More)
Arthrodesis of the wrist has been considered as the gold standard for osteoarthritis of the wrist. In 1984 Watson and Ballet identified a specific pattern of carpal collapse (scapholunate advanced collapse = SLAC) with progressive osteoarthritis. In order to preserve some motion, other alternative procedures have been proposed: proximal row carpectomy (PRC)(More)
OBJECTIVE To analyze the outcome of N3 patients treated with very accelerated radiotherapy (VART) or different schedules of concurrent chemoradiotherapy (CRT) within two phase III trials. PATIENTS AND METHODS Data of 179 patients with N3 HNSCC from two GORTEC randomized trials (96-01 and 99-02) were pooled. Patients received either VART: 64.8Gy/3.5weeks(More)
As a medical imaging complement, a real 3D replica of the anatomical area of interest can be of substantial advantage in orthopaedic and trauma surgery. Unlike the 3D virtual, it makes palpable the notion of scale and volume, and apparent hidden or ambiguous details and thus enhance or facilitate the diagnosis and eventual surgical solutions. CT data of(More)
