Cephalomedullary nailing is considered the treatment of choice for trochanteric and subtrochanteric femoral fractures. The aim of this study was to report postoperative outcomes of one of the widely used trochanteric nail device, the Gamma 3 long nail. We retrospectively assessed 405 patients treated with Gamma 3 long nail in a single Level One Tra...
Background Compression injuries of the thoracolumbar spine without neurological impairment are usually treated with minimally invasive procedures. Intravertebral expandable implants represent an alternative strategy in fractures with low fragments’ displacement. Methods Patients with A2, A3 and A4 fractures of the T10–L2 spinal segment without neu...
Background: Lateral fractures of proximal femur are the most frequent to treat for the traumatologist surgeon. Intramedullary nailing is the gold standard treatment of this type of fracture. The aim of the study is to analyze the results obtained with the Elos Intrauma nail by the experience of two Departments of Orthopedics and Traumatology ("Gug...
Purpose: Analysis of functional outcome of elderly patients with type II odontoid fractures treated conservatively in relation to their radiological outcome. Methods: A total of 50 geriatric patients with type II odontoid fractures were treated with Aspen/Vista collars. On admission, each patient was assessed assigning ASA score, modified Rankin...
MINI: Functional outcome of elderly patients treated for odontoid fracture is strictly related to their pre-injury level of function and comorbidity. Compared with conservative external immobilizations, surgery revealed no advantages in the elderly in terms of functional outcome. Study design: Retrospective multicenter study. Objective: Analysi...
Major joint arthroplasty is undoubtedly one of the surgical success stories of modern times. The first attempt of treating patients affected by knee osteoarthritis with arthroplasty goes back to the midnineteenth century. In 1880 the German surgeon Themistocles Gluck implanted the first primitive hinge joints made of ivory. The first part of the tw...
Hazards and potential complications associated with pedicle screw insertions have been reported. In contrast, complications due to implant removal are rarely described. An unreported case of acute vertebral body compression fracture following pedicle screw removal in a young man occurred during an episode of forceful coughing. Spinal implants need...
The aim of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of Chêneau brace in the management of idiopathic scoliosis. This is a retrospective observational study according to SOSORT and SRS (Scoliosis Research Society) recommendations involving 48 girls with documented progressive idiopathic scoliosis, treated with Chêneau brace. A statistical analys...
In recent years, the application of fibrin sealant has been shown to be efficacious in the management of intraoperative and postoperative hemostasis. We designed a prospective randomized controlled clinical trial to assess the efficacy of two different dosages of fibrin sealant (5 and 10 ml) in patients undergoing total knee arthroplasty, as compar...
Low-grade fibromyxoid sarcoma (LGFMS) was first described by Evans in 1987, and since then, just over 150 cases have been reported, showing the rarity of this tumor. We report the clinical case of a 56-year-old man with a swelling on the distal third of the left thigh. The mass had grown in the course of 1 year and was surgically excised, obtaining...
