Fifteen old dislocations of the radial head in children were treated by open reduction combined with a high osteotomy of the ulna and a reconstruction of the annular ligament. This method, described by the authors in 1978, was used in nine post-traumatic, three congenital, two paralytic and one dislocation associated with multiple exostoses. Twelve children(More)
Three cases of sleeve fractures of the patella are reported. These lesions are epiphyseal fractures. Attention is drawn to the fact that the diagnosis may be missed. Surgical treatment is necessary to attaining and maintaining reduction. The authors focus on that avascular necrosis is important in sleeve fractures and the open reduction increases this risk.
The rate of infection is extremely low after a prophylactic contralateral fixation in slipped upper femoral epiphysis, and exclusively involves superficial wound infection. We report an unusual case of hip infection after a prophylactic pinning with a single cannulated screw. The evolution was unfavorable, with necrosis and epiphysiolysis of the femoral(More)
PURPOSE OF THE STUDY We present the cases of six adolescents (four high-level gymnastics specialists) with osteochondritis dissecans of the capitulum who were treated with an en bloc osteochondral autograft. There are few series of this rare condition reported in the literature. MATERIAL AND METHODS All six patients presented pain over the lateral aspect(More)
In that work, the authors determine precisely the classical outlines relating to the formation described by LUSCHKA in 1859. The morphology, the situation in relation with the medium sacral artery, the exact topography of what is wrongly called "gland of Luschka" are successively analysed. Otherwise, notions which emerge about is histological conformation(More)
On the basis of 12 cases, the authors suggest use of the axillary approach in everyday surgery on the shoulder and the upper end of the humerus, because of the quality of healing it offers. They describe its safety and limitations. Problems are restricted to slight transverse adhesions across the axilla which are easily cured and even more easily avoidable.
