Hip dysplasia due to insufficient coverage of the femoral head is a structural deformity that affects 4% of the Caucasian population and is the cause of 48% of cases of osteoarthritis requiring hip replacement . The option of preventive surgery carries its own risks; meticulous examination of each patient’s individual case is necessary before deciding whether it is indicated. We consider that shelf arthroplasty by a minimally invasive approach is the simplest surgical procedure, has no major complications and has been the best assessed . It does not close the door ...

Use of a consumer electronic handheld device (iPhone™) to measure the Cobb angle in acquired localized kyphoses: A reliability study. Handheld computers combined with cell phones have spread rapidly through the market to the point that virtually everybody has provided himself with a powerful pocket computer with connecting capabilities and more.

Recurrence of dislocation after a first episode requires surgical treatment in one out of four cases.1 Many different procedures have been described so far, which can be broken down into two main categories: surgical procedures on soft tissue are considered more anatomical (e.g. Bankart procedure, the gold standard); those using a bone block were pioneered by Latarjet.

Treatment of complex displaced fractures of the proximal humerus is challenging. Management of a comminuted fracture in poor quality bone with a conventional fixation device is difficult,13 not to mention the potential risk of post-traumatic necrosis of the humeral head,10 nonunion or malunion of the tuberosities.2 In such situations, Neer advocated the use of hemiarthroplasty11. But what was a success in Neer's hands was not in others' hands and many surgeons were disappointed by a high rate of ...

By nature, the patellofemoral joint has low congruity. Passive stability is provided both by the bony structures (congruity between the patella and the trochlear groove) and by the medial and lateral ligaments. Active stability depends on correct tension of the quadriceps muscles on the one hand, and on passive medial-lateral soft-tissue balance on the other hand. The patella needs both passive and active stability to transmit the quadriceps muscle force during flexion and extension movements, whether ...
