OBJECTIVE Hip fractures have been associated with increased mortality in the elderly. Several risk factors such as the time between the insult and the surgical repair have been associated with hip fracture mortality. Nevertheless, the risk of delayed surgical repair remains controversial. Few studies have examined this issue in Brazil. The aim of this study(More)
BACKGROUND There is a lack of uniformity in the diagnostic criteria for femoroacetabular impingement (FAI), and few studies discuss the prevalence of radiographic changes in asymptomatic individuals. These factors make it difficult to establish a natural history of this disease. The aim of this study was to assess the prevalence of radiographic signs of CAM(More)
In many papers, the diagnosis of pincer-type femoroacetabular impingement (FAI) is attributed to the presence of coxa profunda. However, little is known about the prevalence of coxa profunda in the general population and its clinical relevance. In order to ascertain its prevalence in asymptomatic subjects and whether it is a reliable indicator of(More)
Calcaneal fractures are considered uncommon accounting for 0.005-0.41% of all children fractures. Few reports concerning treatment are available. Most of these fractures are non-displaced/minimally displaced and are associated with a fall of less than 1 m. The aim of this case report was to discuss the diagnosis and treatment of a child calcaneal fracture,(More)
Patella fracture is relatively uncommon and the vertical trace fracture represents almost 12-17%. The open patella fracture expresses 6-30%. The association of these two uncommon conditions was the aim of this case report even as the treatment and the moment of fixation (definitive surgical treatment). A 27-year-old man after a motorcycle accident showed an(More)
UNLABELLED Hip osteoarthritis (OA) is a degenerative disease, and total hip arthroplasty (THA) is one of the surgical procedures of choice to improve the OA patient's quality of life. Without a rehabilitation program, THA patients will develop functional limitations. A randomized double-blind trial was performed between July 2009 and October 2011 to compare(More)
The reconstruction of an acetabular bone defect is one of the most important aspects of revision total hip arthroplasty surgery. It can be done by the use of grafts. Therefore, many kinds of grafts may be used and lyophilized xenograft is an alternative example. The purpose of the study was to evaluate the histological findings of lyophilized bovine(More)
