Les travaux réalisés en collaboration avec le Dr Teissier (Montpellier, Shoulder Unit Surgery, Hopital Saint-Jean) ont été publiés dans International Orthopaedics. Les principaux résultats montrent que grâce à cette implant moderne sans tige, il est possible d’opérer les cas compliqués d’arthrose post traumatisme (fracture, nécrose…) sans réaliser d’ostéotomie afin de réduire les complications.
L’absence d’ostéotomie humérale est un atout majeur, améliorant les résultats post-opératoires et diminuant les complications.

When the proximal humeral anatomy is altered because of malunion, shoulder arthroplasty is a challenge for the orthopaedic surgeon, and tuberosity osteotomy should be avoided whenever possible. The purpose of this study was to investigate the clinical and radiological outcomes of anatomic stemless shoulder arthroplasty in cases of malunion. We hypothesized that a stemless prosthesis can be implanted without performing tuberosity osteotomy.
We conducted a continuous, single surgeon, retrospective case series study with a minimum follow-up of two years (mean of 44 months, range 24-80). The Constant-Murley score, active range of motion and X-rays were evaluated in 27 patients (mean age of 60 years, range 37-83) with proximal humeral malunion who were treated with a stemless anatomic shoulder prosthesis.
In all patients, the prosthesis was implanted without the need for tuberosity osteotomy. The Constant score improved from 27 to 62 (p ≤ 0.001), active anterior elevation from 81° to 129° (p ≤ 0.001), and external rotation from 5° to 40° (p ≤ 0.001). There was no evidence of radiological loosening.
Use of a stemless anatomic shoulder prosthesis avoids the need for tuberosity osteotomy and certain surgical difficulties, even in cases of severe tuberosity malunion, and leads to good functional outcomes in the short term.

Computer-assisted total knee arthroplasty: impact of the surgeon’s experience on the component placement.
- 1Department of Orthopedic Surgery, University of Reunion Island, Hospital of Saint-Pierre, BP 350, Saint Pierre Cedex, France. firstname.lastname@example.org
Accuracy of implant positioning in total knee arthroplasty (TKA) has a major impact on postoperative outcomes. We investigate the accuracy of positioning of multiples values simultaneously in TKA navigated, even among novice users.
The “novice” group included the first 91 knees operated on by 10 operators new to navigation and the “experienced” group 174 knees by an experienced navigator. Deviations from the preoperative planning were graded as optimal (≤3°), acceptable (4°-5°) or non-acceptable (≥5°). Moreover, the percentage of the three values fulfilling simultaneously the objective was calculated.
No significant difference in the number of non-acceptable results was found. The common objective for these three values was achieved within 5° in 96 % in the novice group and 98 % in the experienced one.
The satisfactory HKA alignment was not the result of reversed errors between the tibia and the femur, since it correlated the successful simultaneous results of alpha and beta angles.

Ground-reactive forces after hallux valgus surgery: comparison of Scarf osteotomy and arthrodesis of the first metatarsophalangeal joint.
The purpose of this study was to analyse the biomechanics of walking, through the ground reaction forces (GRF) measured, after first metatarsal osteotomy or metatarsophalangeal joint (MTP) arthrodesis.
PATIENTS AND METHODS:
A total of 19 patients underwent a Scarf osteotomy (50.3 years, standard deviation (sd) 12.3) and 18 underwent an arthrodesis (56.2 years, sd 6.5). Clinical and radiographical data as well as the American Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Society (AOFAS) scores were determined. GRF were measured using an instrumented treadmill. A two-way model of analysis of variance (ANOVA) was used to determine the effects of surgery on biomechanical parameters of walking, particularly propulsion.
Epidemiological, radiographical and clinical data were comparable in the two groups and better restoration of propulsive function was found after osteotomy as shown by ANOVA (two way: surgery × foot) with a surgery effect on vertical forces (p < 0.01) and a foot effect on anteroposterior impulse (p = 0.01).
Patients who underwent Scarf osteotomy had a gait pattern similar to that of their non-operated foot, whereas those who underwent arthrodesis of the first (metatarsophalangeal) MTP joint did not totally recover the propulsive forces of the forefoot.
TAKE HOME MESSAGE:
The main findings of this study were that after surgical correction for hallux valgus, patients who underwent scarf osteotomy had a gait pattern similar to that of their non-operated foot in terms of forefoot propulsive forces (Fz3, Iy2), whereas those who underwent arthrodesis of the first MTP joint had not.

Les prothèses d’épaule de dernière génération
Results of a stemless reverse shoulder prosthesis at more than 58 months mean without loosening.
- 1Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, University Hospital Center of La Réunion Island, Saint-Pierre, La Réunion, France. email@example.com
A stemless reverse shoulder prosthesis with humeral cup was developed to allow stemless press-fit fixation, to preserve bone stock. Our hypothesis was that a stemless reverse shoulder arthroplasty could produce the same functional results without compromising humeral fixation.
This is a continuous, prospective, single-surgeon series including prostheses implanted from 2004 to 2009. Patients received pre- and postoperative clinical evaluation with measurement of joint mobility, the Oxford Shoulder score, and the Constant-Murley score by independent evaluators. Standard radiographs and computed tomographic arthrography were performed.
Fifty-six implants were reviewed at a mean of 58 months (38-95). The Constant-Murley score improved from 29 to 62 points and the Oxford Shoulder score from 46 to 17 points. Active elevation in forward flexion improved from 79° to 140°. One intraoperative complication was recorded: a metaphyseal-diaphyseal humeral bone crack without consequence. One revision surgery due to early instability was performed using a conventional implant. No humeral loosening was observed. Five cases of scapular notching were reported.
This is the first study reporting results with mid-term follow-up for a stemless reverse shoulder arthroplasty. The clinical results are comparable to conventional prostheses with stem. The absence of a humeral stem preserves bone stock for possible later revisions.

Anterior glenohumeral joint stabilization in tetraplegic patients by medializing the anterior head of deltoid muscle.

To improve control of the upper limb in high-level tetraplegic patients, the proximal shoulder must be the first consideration. Medialization of the anterior part of the deltoid muscle provides stabilization and is then an antagonist to the posterior deltoid when a pectoralis major palsy exists. It can also be performed in isolation in high-level tetraplegia even when there is little hope of distal extremity reconstruction to stabilize the shoulder. It also precedes the ability to restore elbow extension and perform further reconstructive hand surgery. We describe the surgical technique and report a clinical case.

Endopelvic migration of a sternoclavicular K-wire. Case report and review of literature.
- 1Beau-Soleil Private Hospital, Orthopedics Department, Montpellier, France. email@example.com
We report a unique case, never before published, of sternoclavicular joint fixation K-wire migration to the pelvic region, in a 56 year-old man. Two years previously, sternoclavicular dislocation had been fixed by three wires. A transitory episode of precordial thoracic pain followed by iterative abdominal pain accompanied the migration. Extraction was performed five years later. Scapular K-wire migration is frequent. The proximity of cardiovascular structures may have fatal consequences. This type of internal fixation raises questions, and migration prevention needs to be taken into account. Medical complications and the legal context are major factors leading us to abandon this type of osteosynthesis. Once migration has been diagnosed, the wire should be removed without delay.
