One of the criticisms of the percutaneous lateral nasal osteotomy technique is the potential for unfavorable, visible scarring. No clinical study has compared the external percutaneous approach with an internal approach to evaluate scarring in the same patient. This prospective, randomized, blinded study was designed to test the hypothesis that ...

Due to wide variations in acetabular structure of individuals with hip dysplasia, the measurement of the acetabular orientation may not be sufficient to predict the joint loading and pressure distribution across the joint. Addition of mechanical analysis to preoperative planning, therefore, has the potential to improve the clinical outcome. We ...

Periacetabular osteotomies, such as rotational acetabular osteotomy (RAO) for osteoarthritis (OA) secondary to hip dysplasia, have produced satisfactory medium- and long-term results in early OA. However, as the degree of surgical invasion of these procedures is comparatively major and long-term postoperative rehabilitation is required, this procedure is generally not indicated ...

Between January 1996 and December 1999, we performed 30 derotational osteotomies with compression nailing in 29 patients. In 18 cases (group 1), we used an intramedullary saw (minimally invasive technique), and in 12 cases (group 2), we used a conventional open technique. Follow-up included clinical, conventional radiological, and computer tomographical ...

The Bernese periacetabular osteotomy has a considerable rate of postoperative complications such as reflex sympathetic dystrophy, motor nerve palsy, heterotopic ossification, and delayed union of the ilium, which are assumed to be caused by extensive exposure or asphericity of the osteotomy surfaces. To address these issues, we developed the curved ...
