PURPOSE OF THE STUDY We report our experience with a B tricalcium phosphate ceramic to fill open-wedge tibial osteotomy gaps. MATERIAL AND METHODS Seventy high tibial open-wedge osteotomies were performed in 70 patients (47 men and 23 women). Ostotomy was performed for osteoarthritis in 56 knees, Ahlback classification stage I (n = 18), stage II (n = 32),(More)
PURPOSE OF THE STUDY The objective of this study was to compare the dynamic hip screw (Synthes) and intramedullary fixation (Targon PF, Aesculap) for the treatment of pertrochanteric fractures in terms of stability, complications and cost effectiveness. MATERIAL AND METHODS This prospective randomized study included 60 patients hospitalized in an(More)
Accurate implant placement in the anterior maxilla is essential in achieving optimal prosthetic rehabilitation with proper function and acceptable esthetic and phonetic demands. One of the preferable prosthetic solutions to restore a missing maxillary incisor in young adults is by an implant-supported crown. Bone resorption together with an enlarged(More)
Ultrasonography was performed to assess muscle injuries in 120 advanced-level athletes. Real-time sonography was chosen for evaluation since it allowed a comparison between the muscles at rest and during contraction. Pathologic patterns are reported and compared with the normal ultrasonic muscular anatomy. Twenty-five subjects were referred for surgery. All(More)
Meal and post-meal period define the post-prandial state, which overall covers a little bit more than half daytime period. The post-prandial state is characterized by transient plasma variations in carbohydrates, lipids and hormones in direct relation with nutrient intake. These variations have an impact on the metabolism of several tissues. The(More)
Apoproteins of high density lipoproteins were detected in the urine of normal subjects after the urinary proteins were highly concentrated. By immunoelectrophoresis, all of the urinary apoproteins gave precipitin lines with similar electrophoretic mobility. This suggests that the various apoproteins are present in the same particle. The apoproteins were(More)
The use of a barrier membrane, with or without osseous allograft, has been shown to establish regeneration of osseous tissue around dental implants. Following three episodes of persistent symptomatic failed apicoectomy and subsequent tooth extraction, an osseointegrated implant was placed in a wide fenestrated defect. Demineralized freeze-dried bone(More)
All intramedullary femoral surgery entails embolic phenomena which explain peroperative collapses formally known as bone cement implantation syndrome, as well as perioperative fat embolism syndromes. Locally, the bigger the cavity is, the higher the number of accidents: 2.5-5 per cent for GUEPAR hinged-knee prosthesis, 1.75 per cent for total hip(More)
