BACKGROUND Genetic skeletal disorders of the fetus and infant are a large group of genetic disorders, comprising the groups formerly assigned as skeletal dysplasias (osteochondrodysplasias), dysostoses, and malformation syndromes with a skeletal component. Genetic skeletal disorders may be prenatally detected by ultrasonography or result in intrauterine or(More)
Cranioectodermal dysplasia (CED), also known as Sensenbrenner syndrome, is a rare autosomal recessive genetic disorder characterized by typical craniofacial, skeletal and ectodermal defects, and tubulointerstitial nephritis leading to early end-stage renal failure. We report on a new familial case of a 9-year-old patient and two fetuses of 23 and 19 weeks(More)
Heterotopic ossification is a common complication following total hip arthroplasty and surgery following acetabular trauma. It is associated with pain and a decreased range of movement. Prophylaxis is achieved by either non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug treatment or localised irradiation therapy. The objective of this study was to evaluate the evidence(More)
Tissue engineering is an emerging scientific approach that may offer alternative pathways for managing tissue degeneration. The use of cellular and acellular matrix in combination with cells and/or growth factors is one approach currently being explored in the management of rotator cuff disease. Interestingly, the integration of gene therapy with this(More)
