Interprosthetic femoral fracture is a rare and challenging fragility fracture issue. Due to aging of the population, the incidence of this type of fracture is gradually and constantly increasing. There is no complete and specific interprosthetic femoral fracture classification system that indicates treatment and prognosis in the literature. The aim of the(More)
The present study aims to evaluate if the bicipital groove can be used as a parameter for ideal plate positioning in proximal humeral fixation applying locking compression plate. The authors questioned whether the bicipital groove can be used as a parameter for ideal plate positioning applying locking compression plate for proximal humeral fractures. A(More)
OBJECTIVE we prospectively evaluated clinical and radiographic outcomes in patients with displaced combined transverse-posterior wall acetabular fractures managed at our Institution over a period of seven years by posterolateral single approach, direct posterior wall and posterior column reduction and plating, and indirect reduction of anterior column(More)
The authors report the cases of two young patients who had suffered a sporting accident with posterior traumatic dislocation of sternoclavicular joint. In one of the patients closed reduction was accomplished by keeping the limb in a sling. The second patient, after reduction was done, presented recurrence of the dislocation, thus requiring surgical(More)
BACKGROUND The objective of this study is to analyze the proximal tibiofibular joint in patients with knee pain after treatment of tibial shaft fractures with locked intramedullary nail. FINDINGS The proximal tibiofibular joint was analyzed in 30 patients, who reported knee pain after tibial nailing, and standard radiograph and computed tomography were(More)
OBJECTIVE To define the distal femur rotation pattern in a Brazilian population, correlating such pattern with the one suggested by the arthroplasty instruments, and analyzing the variability of each anatomic parameter. MATERIALS AND METHODS A series of 101 magnetic resonance imaging studies were evaluated in the period between April and June 2012. The(More)
OBJECTIVE To define the anthropometric profile of the knee in a Brazilian population with gonarthrosis using intraoperative measurements; and to evaluate the compatibility of three implants available for total knee arthroplasty. METHODS Morphometric data were collected prospectively from 117 subjects with gonarthrosis. Six dimensions in the distal femur(More)
Rupture of the patellar tendon is a well-known injury in the orthopaedic literature. However, it is unusual and rarely reported in adolescent children. On the one hand, in the immature skeleton, the most frequent lesion above the kneecap is the sleeve fracture. On the other hand, in the distal region, avulsion of the tibial tuberosity is more common.(More)
OBJECTIVE To ascertain whether the number of screws or pins placed in the calcaneus might increase the risk of injury when three different techniques for treating calcaneal fractures. METHOD 126 radiographs of patients who suffered displaced calcaneal fractures were retrospectively analyzed. Three surgical techniques were analyzed on an interobserver(More)
Objective: to compare the laboratorial results of opening suction drainage 6 hours and 12 hours after total knee arthroplasty surgery. Methods: prospective and randomized study in 88 patients undergoing with total knee arthroplasty in two groups: in one group the opening suction drainage was performed 6 hours (n = 45) after the surgery and in the other 12(More)
