STUDY DESIGN Cross-sectional. OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study is to describe the normative data of the sagittal plane on pediatric age population, and to document the evolution of sagittal alignment with growth. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA Having normative data about the sagittal plane is an integral part in the planning of the three-dimensional(More)
Forty-four developmentally dislocated hips occurring in 30 patients with an average age at initial surgery of 10.7 (range 2-19) months underwent medial open reduction by Ferguson's approach. All patients were skeletally mature at most recent evaluation. Mean follow-up was 19.8 (range 13-27.5) years. No redislocation or sub-luxation occurred. Additional(More)
BACKGROUND Although there have been numerous studies on the treatment of developmental dysplasia of the hip, few have focused on its natural history into adulthood. We observed valgus deformity of the knee in a group of adult patients with developmental dysplasia of the hip. To the best of our knowledge, there has been no detailed study of that condition.(More)
Tibial plateau fractures are common yet complex injuries, and include a wide variety of fracture patterns. They are also potentially associated with significant soft tissue injury. Thus, the surgeon preparing to operate on one of these fractures must choose from a variety of surgical approaches that have been described. The choice of approach is dictated(More)
Our aim was to determine the most repeatable three-dimensional measurement of glenoid orientation and to compare it between shoulders with intact and torn rotator cuffs. Our null hypothesis was that glenoid orientation in the scapulae of shoulders with a full-thickness tear of the rotator cuff was the same as that in shoulders with an intact rotator cuff.(More)
The elbow is a commonly injured joint, yet physicians may be less comfortable treating injuries to the elbow compared with knee and shoulder injuries. Common injuries involving the elbow are tendinosis, instability, tendon ruptures, osteochondritis dissecans, and fractures. Tendinosis is a common overuse injury and may occur on the lateral, medial, or(More)
BACKGROUND Hemodynamically unstable patients with a pelvic fracture and arterial pelvic bleeding frequently are treated with pelvic angiographic embolization (PAE). PAE is reported to be a safe and effective method of controlling hemorrhage. However, the loss of blood supply and subsequent ischemia from embolization may lead to adverse consequences. (More)
This study aimed at evaluating the additional stability that is provided by anterior external and internal fixators in an unstable pelvic fracture model (OTA 61-C). An unstable pelvic fracture (OTA 61-C) was created in 27 synthetic pelves by making a 5-mm gap through the sacral foramina (posterior injury) and an ipsilateral pubic rami fracture (anterior(More)
OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study was to compare the fixation afforded by a dorsal nonlocking plate with a volar locking plate in a fracture model simulating an extra-articular distal radius fracture with dorsal comminution (OTA [Orthopaedic Trauma Association] type 23-A3.2). METHODS In 10 matched pairs of fresh-frozen cadaveric arms, a comminuted(More)
INTRODUCTION The new-generation multidetector computed tomographic (CT) scanners allow for the generation of virtual x-rays from the data acquired during the evaluation of pelvic fractures. Special software allows technicians to obtain the appropriate orientation required for adequate inlet and outlet views, which would eliminate repeat trips to the(More)
