Article
Background: Trapeziometacarpal arthroplasties are designed to restore an adequate level of mobility, stability, and grip strength. In this article, pain and functional and radiographic outcome of Ivory arthroplasty in male patients are investigated. Methods: Between 2005 and 2012, the Ivory arthroplasty was inserted in 21 male patients with degener...
Article
Bennett's fractures are the most common fractures around the trapeziometacarpal joint but require specialized radiographs to be correctly diagnosed. If a fracture is missed at initial presentation, it may heal with an intra-articular gap, leading to joint incongruency and a painful trapeziometacarpal joint. We present a new technique to correct the...
Article
Treatment of symptomatic thumb base instability after multiple surgical procedures for thumb base arthritis including trapeziectomy remains a challenging problem. We hypothesized a scaphometacarpal arthrodesis with iliac bone graft to be an acceptable definitive salvage procedure for persistent pain and impaired strength after multiple procedures o...
Article
In our department surgical treatment of Carpal tunnel syndrome is performed using, the single incision technique described by Agee. It is a transverse incision of about 1 cm carefully placed into the skinfold of the palmar wrist. In our practice, we faced 2 cases where the skin suture was removed accidentally the day following surgery. We left the...
Article
This prospective study investigates long-term functional outcome after total trapeziometacarpal joint replacement with the Ivory arthroplasty for trapeziometacarpal joint osteoarthritis. Clinical outcome, overall function, pain, and radiologic outcome after a minimum of 10 years were evaluated for 26 Ivory arthroplasty in 24 patients. Two patients...
Article
This study investigated the long term functional outcome after total replacement of the trapeziometacarpal joint with the Ivory prosthesis (Stryker Corporate, Michigan, USA) for trapeziometcarpal joint osteoarthritis in male patients. In this prospective study, range of motion, overall function, pain and radiologic outcome of the trapeziometacarpal...
Article
Les cals vicieux articulaires des phalanges sont, de par leur taille et l’entourage tissulaire, un défi délicat par rapport à toute chirurgie correctrice. Les moyens de calculs mis à disposition pour préparer la stratégie de correction ont néanmoins évolué. La société Materialise ® développe depuis plus de 25 ans des gabarits de correction 3D pour...
Article
Le traitement de la maladie de Dupuytren est en pleine évolution ces dernières années. Les traitements proposés sont divers : la fasciectomie totale, fasciectomie sérielle et l’aponeurotomie à l’aiguille se font petit à petit remplacer par le traitement par collagénose. En Belgique, ce produit est remboursé pour des contractures de 20° au minimum,...

This study investigated the long-term functional outcome after total replacement of the trapeziometacarpal joint with the Ivory prosthesis (Stryker Corporate, Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA) for trapeziometcarpal joint osteoarthritis. In this prospective study, range of motion, overall function, pain and radiologic outcome of the trapeziometacarpal arthr...
Article
En 1927, Mauclaire, puis en 1932, Dieterich, furent les premiers à faire un rapport sur une condition de nécrose aseptique des têtes métacarpiennes. Depuis lors, la condition se nomme comme maladie de Dieterich – Mauclaire (ou vice-versa). La plupart des articles qui sont apparus dans la littérature récente, rapportent leurs succès chirurgicaux, ta...

Article
Background Surgical management of de Quervain's tenosynovitis is based on decompression of the first extensor compartment. A simple release of the first compartment can cause instability of the extensor pollicis brevis (EPB) and abductor pollicis longus (APL) tendons in zone seven of the extensors. The WHAT test (wrist hyperflexion and abduction of...
Article
Nous proposons une vidéo qui illustre le traitement par voie arthroscopique d’une pseudarthrose du scaphoïde au travers d’un cas clinique. La vidéo montre et énumère les différentes étapes chirurgicales. Un jeune homme de 24 ans consulte pour une douleur au poignet 7 semaines après une chute. La radiographie et le CBCT montre une résorption osseuse...
Article
Purpose A proximal avulsion of the radiocarpal capsule (PARC) is a cause of persisting posttraumatic wrist pain. This lesion is often overlooked and left untreated during wrist arthroscopy. Materials and Methods A record review was performed on 13 patients with this lesion who underwent diagnostic wrist arthroscopy after failed conservative treatme...
Chapter
Recent articles have ranked Lateral Release (LR) 47th among all procedures by orthopaedic surgeons [ 9 , 14 ]. Despite its frequency the indications and results of an LR remain controversial. The acceptable results (good and excellent) have a wide range from 14 to 99 % [ 1 , 4 , 12 , 14 ]. LR can be subdivided as both an isolated and an associated...

Varicose veins are a frequent disorder which may cause both aesthetic and functional complaints, which are diverse and may vary from unpleasant tingling to severe ulcera of the legs. The quality of life in patients with venous insufficiency is clearly affected. Thus adequate therapy is necessary. Possible therapies can be divided in conservative an...
Article
Although lateral release (LR) is a commonly performed surgical procedure, the indications for this type of treatment remain controversial. The purpose of this review is to give a systematic classification of the diagnoses for which LR has been carried out. Additionally, an overview of the published studies will be presented showing which diagnosis...
Article
We performed a retrospective study of 28 patients who underwent bolt fixation for a syndesmotic injury to the ankle. The mean follow-up period was 66 months (range: 24-139 months). The results of surgery were assessed clinically and radiographically. Overall, this fixation device was found to adequately stabilise the syndesmosis during healing. Rad...

Die vorliegende Arbeit beinhaltet eine Literaturrecherche über die laterale Retinaculumspaltung. Von den 30 beurteilten Arbeiten fand sich lediglich eine prospektive randomisierte Studie. Diese konnte keine signifikante Differenz zwischen arthroskopischer und offener lateraler Retinaculumspaltung dokumentieren. Generell wurden bei isolierter latera...
Article
This overview of numerous studies discusses, based on short-term and long-term results, which diagnoses are indications for lateral retinacular release. No significant differences in outcome between arthroscopic and open lateral release could be documented. Isolated lateral release offers a good success rate for treating a stable patella with exces...
