Public hospital experience of reduction mammaplasties using L scars of J.S. Elbaz technique. The authors review their public hospital experience of reduction mammaplasties using the L technique described by J.S. Elbaz. This technique minimizes scaring because there is non medial horizontal branch. After describing the technique, they analyze the immediate(More)
The authors describe 68 articular fractures of the lower end of the radius in which a postero-medial accessory fragment was displaced. They have made a study of the anatomy and fibrous connections of the fragment and conclude that this fragment is best maintained reduced by a transverse pin passed from the ulna towards the radius. They attach great(More)
PURPOSE OF THE STUDY We looked for the anatomic origin and mechanism of constitution of the so-called "ganglions" of the wrist. MATERIAL AND METHODS Fifty-nine formations considered to be synovial ganglions were dissected and removed according to the same protocol by the same surgeon. Eleven were re-examined by a pathologist. All ganglions were(More)
A bone graft, taken from the medial part of the radial epiphysis can be pedicled on the radial branch of the volar carpal arch, freed back to its origin. The graft can be transferred into the proximal row of the carpus to fill up a loss of bony substance or to provide vascularised bone. This permits the treatment of chronic pseud-arthrosis of the scaphoid(More)
Plasma phenylalanine concentrations were measured on the seventh postburn day in patients with burn surface areas ranging from 1 to 39%. Hepatic function (glutamate-pyruvate transaminase, prothrombin time) and protein breakdown (nitrogen balance, urine 3-methylhistidine/creatinine ratio) were evaluated in parallel. Plasma phenylalanine concentrations in(More)
The authors report their experience with the use of a vascularised pisiform bone graft based on the dorsal branch of the ulnar artery to provide osseous support and an efficient vascular aid especially in non-unions of the carpal navicular bone with avascular necrosis of its proximal pole and in stage III Kienböck's disease. The pisiform can replace the(More)
The nutrient flap is a new concept of the role of the flap. It has three functions: (1) it provides supplementary blood flow to ischemic zones, (2) it assists venous drainage in regions of venous insufficiency, and (3) it induces the formation of a capillary network. Its skin covering role is only accessory. We have applied this principle to osteitis,(More)
Early excision-graft of burned hands seems to have totally superseded the conventional method of progressive detorsion often with late grafting. Does this treatment merit acceptance under these conditions? Do the theoretical advantages of aggressive methods counter-balance the primary difficulty of diagnosing the initial depth of burn? Are these fewer(More)
