The recognized options for the treatment of chronic locked posterior dislocation of the shoulder are dependent on the size of the anteromedial defect of the humeral head. Transfer of the lesser tuberosity with its attached subscapularis tendon into the defect is recommended for defects that are smaller than approximately 40 per cent of the joint surface.(More)
To assess the efficacy of autologous blood injection under sonographic guidance for the treatment of lateral epicondylitis. Thirty-five patients (23 men, 12 women, mean age 40.9) with refractory lateral epicondylitis (mean symptom duration 13.8 months) underwent sonographic evaluation prior to dry-needling the tendon and injection with autologous blood.(More)
BACKGROUND There is a lack of consensus regarding optimal surgical management of displaced and unstable three-part proximal humeral fractures. QUESTIONS/PURPOSES The objective of this prospective observational study was to compare the clinical and radiologic outcomes of plate versus nail fixation of three-part proximal humeral fractures. PATIENTS AND(More)
Between January 1980 and December 1989, 133 consecutive patients were treated for a fracture of the shaft of one or both forearm bones (134 forearms in total). All fractures were stabilized with AO/ASIF 3.5 mm stainless-steel dynamic compression plates. The 1 year follow-up rate was 99 per cent; the long-term follow-up rate was 92 per cent (the mean(More)
BACKGROUND Path analysis methods were used to test the prognostic value of 10 patient-related and treatment-related factors on the 1-year functional outcome of 463 proximal humeral fractures measured using the Constant score. Complex inter-relationships between these factors were also evaluated. MATERIALS AND METHODS Data were collected from a prospective(More)
BACKGROUND Anterior instability of the sternoclavicular joint is uncommon and usually follows a benign course, although symptomatic patients may require surgical intervention. The optimal treatment for symptomatic instability of the sternoclavicular joint remains unclear. The aim of this study was to evaluate the clinical outcome after reconstruction of the(More)
The sternoclavicular joint (SCJ) is a pivotal articulation in the linked system of the upper limb girdle, providing load-bearing in compression while resisting displacement in tension or distraction at the manubrium sterni. The SCJ and acromioclavicular joint (ACJ) both have a small surface area of contact protected by an intra-articular fibrocartilaginous(More)
Between December 1990 and September 1993, 26 consecutive patients (27 elbows) were treated for elbow contractures. We used a modified transhumeral approach supplemented by a limited lateral approach with or without a limited medial approach according to the correction gained after each step of the procedure. Eleven posttraumatic, 6 degenerative, and 10(More)
BACKGROUND Fractures of the glenoid frequently require surgical treatment. A comprehensive and reliable scapula classification system involving the glenoid fracture patterns is needed to describe the underlying pathology. The AO Scapula Classification Group introduces an appropriate novel system that is presented along with its inter-rater reliability and(More)
The aim of this study was to compare the functional outcome, quality of restoration, and complication rate after open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF) of displaced or unstable 2-, 3- and 4-part humeral fractures using two different locking plates. The data used in this analysis was prospectively collected in two large multicentre studies in 15(More)
