INTRODUCTION UKA is an appropriate bone-sparing solution for focal advanced knee osteoarthritis in young patients. As the expectations of patients younger than 60 years of age are different from those in an older population, we aimed to evaluate quality of life and the quality of sports activity after UKA in this population. PATIENTS AND METHODS(More)
In developing countries, access to antiretroviral treatment for persons living with HIV is still in progress. Malnutrition represents another cause of acquired immunodeficiency and premature death. This evaluation program estimated the impact of family nutritional support during the first year of antiretroviral treatment in West Africa's sub-Sahara region.(More)
We retrospectively reviewed 35 cemented unicompartmental knee replacements performed for medial unicompartmental osteoarthritis of the knee in 31 patients </=50 years old (mean 46, 31 to 49). Patients were assessed clinically and radiologically using the Knee Society scores at a mean follow-up of 9.7 years (5 to 16) and survival at 12 years was calculated.(More)
The aim of our study was to determine the role of the operator’s experience in the sonographic evaluation of the painful shoulder and to validate assumptions about its technical performance in routine practice. Two radiologists, respectively standard and expert sonographic operators, independently and prospectively scanned 65 patients with clinical(More)
The femoral calcar is a dense internal septum reaching from the femoral neck to the distal part of the lesser trochanter. Our study aimed at providing an exhaustive radio-anatomical description of this structure. One hundred pelvic computed tomography examinations were retrospectively selected to bilaterally evaluate the shape, dimensions, and density of(More)
INTRODUCTION The aim of this study was to evaluate factors influencing short- and long-term survival in medical patients aged 80 and over following admission to an intensive care unit. METHODS All patients aged 80 years or over and admitted between 2001 and 2006 were included in this study. Survival was evaluated between the time of admission and June(More)
We have evaluated in vitro the accuracy of percutaneous and ultrasound registration as measured in terms of errors in rotation and version relative to the bony anterior pelvic plane in computer-assisted total hip replacement, and analysed the intra- and inter-observer reliability of manual or ultrasound registration. Four clinicians were asked to perform(More)
BACKGROUND Early studies in the literature reported relatively high early minor reintervention rate for the mobile-bearing unilateral knee arthroplasty (UKA) compared with short- and midterm survivorship after fixed- or mobile-bearing UKA. However, whether the long-term function and survivorship are similar is unclear. QUESTIONS/PURPOSES We therefore(More)
INTRODUCTION Most computer-assisted navigation systems used in total hip arthroplasty (THA) reference the anterior pelvic plane, which connects the anterior superior iliac spines and the pubic symphysis. The pelvic tilt is defined as the angle between this anterior pelvic plane (APP) and a vertical line in the standing position. Important interindividual(More)
BACKGROUND Follow-up of in vitro fertilization (IVF) children is recommended by the French health authorities. Follow-up procedures were set-up in a medically assisted reproduction unit at the Saint-Joseph Hospital in Marseille. The objective was to ensure effective follow-up. In this context, it is important to determinate weather the designated tools are(More)
