Gait improvement surgery was performed on 25 ambulatory children with the diplegic type of cerebral palsy. Multiple soft tissue and bony procedures were performed (mean 8.2 procedures) according to criteria defined on the basis of physical examination and gait analysis. Relevant physical examination findings and kinematic and kinetic data in the sagittal(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE In skeletally immature patients, surgical options due to recurrent patella dislocation are limited, because bony procedures bear the risk of growth disturbances. In this retrospective study, we report the long-term functional and radiographic outcome in skeletally immature patients using the modified Grammont surgical technique. (More)
BACKGROUND Unstable meniscal tears are rare injuries in skeletally immature patients. Loss of a meniscus increases the risk of subsequent development of degenerative changes in the knee. This study deals with the outcome of intraarticular meniscal repair and factors that affect healing. Parameters of interest were type and location of the tear and also the(More)
INTRODUCTION There are numerous cases of abdominal injuries due to bullets. Abdominal injuries due to bullets are a diagnostic and therapeutic challenge. Here, an unusual case of an abdominal perforation caused by a metal projectile, lead to confusion in the interpretation of the preoperative computer tomography. CASE PRESENTATION We present an unusual(More)
Eleven children with hemiplegic or an asymmetric diplegic cerebral palsy who had a preoperative leg length discrepancy of more than 2.5 cm underwent gait improvement surgery which included leg length equalisation. Sagittal plane kinematics and kinetics before and about 3 years after surgery for the lengthened limb and contralateral limb were evaluated.(More)
