Revision surgery for shoulder prosthesis remains a difficult task in shoulder surgery. The purpose of this retrospective study was to evaluate the clinical and radiological outcomes of a series of 30 reverse shoulder prostheses performed as revision of failed hemi- or total shoulder arthroplasty. The most relevant technical points in surgery are described,(More)
PURPOSE Our aim was to assess the clinical and radiological outcomes of reverse shoulder replacements performed in association with a latissimus dorsi and teres major tendon transfer in cases of irreparable posterosuperior cuff tears including the teres minor tendon. Our hypothesis was that the tendon transfers would improve the clinical results of(More)
INTRODUCTION Despite the success of reverse shoulder arthroplasty, the rate of scapular notching phenomena is high and represents a significant risk of glenoid prosthetic component loosening over the long term. The aim of this study was to perform an arthroscopic dynamic analysis of the impingement of the humeral cup on the neck of the scapula in order to(More)
The lateral supramalleolar flap has proved to be versatile for managing a variety of skin defects of the foot, ankle and lower third of the leg. An anatomical study has shown the reliability of a subcutaneous vascular network, supplied by terminal branches of the perforating branch of the peroneal artery. Our technical refinement consists in designing the(More)
To describe an all-arthroscopic treatment of acromioclavicular joint (ACJ) dislocation and report the clinical results of the procedure. This study consisted of 54 patients of whom 49 were men and 5 were women. The age of the patients averaged 39 years (range 16–69 years). All the symptomatic acute and chronic acromioclavicular joint dislocations classified(More)
PURPOSE To assess rotator cuff rupture characteristics and evaluate healing and the functional outcome after arthroscopic repair in patients older than 70 years versus patients younger than 50 years. METHODS We conducted a multicenter, prospective, comparative study of 40 patients younger than 50 years (group A) and 40 patients older than 70 years (group(More)
The functional outcome of hemiarthroplasty in displaced proximal humeral 3- and 4-part fractures or fracture dislocations in elderly patients is frequently unpredictable and depends on the position of the prosthesis and tuberosity fixation. Reverse shoulder arthroplasty represents an alternative in elderly patients. The purpose of this study was to report(More)
Management of very distal finger amputations is still controversial. Successful replantation results in an almost normal finger but is not without problems, such as technical difficulty, risk of failure and cost. "Reposition-flap" repair is a simpler procedure: it consists of distal bone and nail bed "graft-reposition" and pulp reconstruction by a flap. We(More)
BACKGROUND Cuff tear arthropathy is the primary indication for total reverse shoulder arthroplasty. In patients with pseudoparalytic shoulders secondary to irreparable rotator cuff tear, reverse shoulder arthroplasty allows restoration of active anterior elevation and painless shoulder. High rates of glenoid notching have also been reported. We designed a(More)
The transfer of the pectoralis major in cases of irreparable rupture of the subscapularis has been described through different techniques. The aim of this prospective study was to compare the clinical results of transferring the clavicular or the sternal head of the pectoralis major tendon underneath the conjoint tendon. Fifteen patients underwent the(More)
