Despite the long experience of radiologists, pathologists and orthopaedists with aneurysmal bone cysts (ABC), there is limited knowledge regarding the cause of the lesion and the optimal treatment. The pathogenesis of ABC remains unclear with theories ranging from a post-traumatic, reactive vascular malformation to genetically predisposed bone tumours.(More)
The authors analyzed a series of 15 pelvic aneurysmal bone cysts (9 boys and 6 girls) in children and adolescents who were reviewed with an average follow-up of 50.3 months. Pain and limp were the main symptoms. Four patients had no treatment after the open biopsy. Eleven patients were treated with curettage. Preoperative selective arterial embolization was(More)
The management of aneurysmal bone cyst depends on the age of the patient, the location, extent, aggressiveness and the size of the lesion. In the light of their experience and a review of the literature of 1256 aneurysmal bone cysts, the authors analyzed various treatment modalities. Inactive lesions can heal with biopsy or curettage alone. In active or(More)
Some authors have reported that the clinical and pathologic behaviour of aneurysmal bone cysts (ABCs) is more aggressive in younger patients and that younger patients have more tumour recurrence. The authors carried out a retrospective, multicentred paediatric population-based analysis of 21 patients (14 boys and seven girls), 5 years of age or younger,(More)
PURPOSE OF THE STUDY MacFarland fractures are known to have poor prognosis. There is a major risk of misalignment due to the formation of an epiphysiodesis bridge. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the functional and radiological outcome of these fractures in a retrospective series of patients. MATERIAL AND METHODS We analyzed retrospectively the(More)
PURPOSE OF THE STUDY To analyze objective and subjective results on medium-term follow-up of intercondylar fractures of the tibia in children. MATERIAL AND METHODS A retrospective, single-center study of 32 fractures (17 boys, 14 girls) was performed. Fractures were itemized on the Meyers and McKeever classification as modified by Zaricznyj: there were(More)
Assessment of treatments in children with cerebral palsy has been well developed, especially in the gait laboratory. However, the prerequisite for walking is adequate postural control. We hypothesize that a treatment of an equinus deformity should improve postural control. Balance control was assessed by static posturography on the Balance Master. Nine(More)
The authors report a case of an undiagnosed Kocher-Lorenz fracture in a 12-year-old adolescent. The Kocher-Lorenz type fracture involves a superficial osteochondral shell of the capitellum with little underlying bone. Three years after trauma, the patient still complained of throbbing and occasional elbow pain. Radiographic examination revealed a large(More)
Elbow instability is a common feature after medial epicondyle fractures, displaced or not, even in the absence of dislocation. Undisplaced or minimally displaced fractures often have an underestimated degree of instability secondary to unrecognised capsuloligamentous and muscular injuries. The purpose of this retrospective study was to analyze and to assess(More)
Salter-Harris type III and IV medial malleolar fractures (MacFarland fracture) is a joint fracture of the ankle in children. The fracture line passes through the medial part of the lower epiphyseal disk of the tibia. Prognosis is dominated by later risk of misalignment and osteoarthritis. The aim of this study was to evaluate the functional and radiological(More)
