A prospective study of 110 patients was carried out to determine the pathogenic significance of trauma to the upper body in the development of neural compressive irritation at the thoracic outlet. Twenty-nine patients were reviewed as cervical strain injuries (N group), 25 patients as probable neurogenic thoracic outlet syndrome (NTOS) (PT group), 39(More)
We reported the findings from three patients with Gollop-Wolfgang complex and demonstrated the results of five limb salvage treatments for this condition. All three femoral bifurcations were accompanied by ipsilateral complete tibial hemimelia. Two patients showed contralateral complete or partial tibial hemimelia, and one patient had hand ectrodactyly. The(More)
We reviewed our clinical and radiographic results in the operative treatment of five unilateral and six bilateral hip dislocations in 11 patients with amyoplasia-type arthrogryposis. The mean age at surgery was 1.8 (range, 1.1-3.2) years. Femoral and/or pelvic osteotomies were combined with an open reduction. The mean follow-up period was 12.7 (range,(More)
Nineteen foot centralizations were performed in 14 patients with Jones type I and II tibial hemimelia. All feet showed equinovarus deformity and were treated by foot centralization by means of calcaneofibular arthrodesis. The average age of patients at the time of surgery was 1.3 years (range 0.4-3.8 years). The average follow-up postoperative period was(More)
BACKGROUND We evaluated the pathologic anatomy of the Sprengel deformity using radiographs, 3-dimensional computed tomography (3D-CT), and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and reviewed our results of the modified Green procedure. METHODS Between 2002 and 2009, 23 scapulae in 22 patients were treated. The average age at the time of surgery was 3.4 years(More)
PURPOSE Kabuki syndrome is characterized by distinctive facial features, skeletal anomalies, persisting fingertip pads with dermatoglyphic abnormalities, postnatal growth deficiency and mental retardation. This report reviews our results in the operative treatment of hip dislocations in patients with Kabuki syndrome. METHODS Between 2001 and 2009, seven(More)
