The functional results of standard reconstruction prostheses are impaired by instability because of poor muscular reinsertion, especially of the gluteal muscles. In 21 patients, composite hip prostheses including proximal femoral allografts were used after primary malignant tumor resection. Ten reconstructions used combined bone-tendon allografts that(More)
PURPOSE OF THE STUDY Results of the Latarjet procedure for chronic anterior shoulder instability using a coracoid block are known in terms of recurrence, but not in terms of apprehension. We studied a prospective consecutive series of shoulders treated with the Latarjet method in order to determine whether patients forget their shoulder or whether they are(More)
A retrospective study of 487 patients with dermatitis herpetiformis showed that lymphoma developed in eight patients, the expected incidence being 0.21 (standardized registration ratio 3810). All lymphomas occurred in patients whose dermatitis herpetiformis had been controlled without a gluten-free diet (GFD) or in those who had been treated with a GFD for(More)
We used a trochanteric slide osteotomy (TSO) in 94 consecutive revision total hip arthroplasties (90 with replacement of both the cup and stem). This technique proved to be adequate for removing the components, with few complications (two minor fractures), and for implanting acetabular allografts (18%) and reinforcement devices (23%). Trochanteric union was(More)
Parathyroid cancer is very rare in chronic renal failure. Only twelve cases have been described, but the actual incidence might be under estimated. Monoclonal proliferation have been demonstrated in hyperplasic parathyroid glands of uremic patients and the diagnosis between benign or malignant tumor may be difficult. Evidence for a deletion of the(More)
It has been suggested that calcium salts of keto-analogues (KA) have beneficial effects on phosphocalcic and aminoacid (AA) metabolism. To confirm this, their short-term effects were evaluated on chronic dialyzed patients. In a prospective, randomised, crossover study, eight and seven patients were put on KA (200 mg/kg/d) and assigned either a low-protein(More)
The short term effects of a low (RP: 0.4 g/kg/day) and a normal (RN: 1 g/kg/day) protein diet supplemented by calcium salts of keto-analogs (CA) (200 mg/kg/day) were observed in a crossover study of phosphocalcic metabolism in 15 chronic dialysed patients during 15 days using a crossover device. CA were well tolerated but CA.RP was accompanied by a caloric(More)
Antigliadin antibodies (AGA) of IgG and IgA class were assayed with a modified enzymeimmunoassay in serum samples of 18 patients with gluten-sensitive enteropathy and 30 patients with dermatitis herpetiformis. No difference between antibody amount or avidity of the two groups of patients was observed. Avidity and total amount of AGA were also compared in 15(More)
Primitive malignant rhabdoid tumors of the central nervous system are rare and have a poor prognosis. Adult and adolescent cases are exceptional. We report the case of a 16-year-old girl who presented an intratumoral hemorrhage in a rhabdoid tumor. She was treated with surgery, followed by intravenous and intrathecal chemotherapy. Despite intensive(More)
It can be difficult to distinguish between primary hyperoxaluria at end-stage renal failure and secondary oxalosis, all the more as primary hyperoxaluria can be latent for a long time and occur at a late stage. A 57 year-old woman, without family nor personal history of urolithiasis, receives regular hemodialysis for a renal failure discovered at end-stage.(More)
