  • La toxine botulinique intégrée à une prise en charge globale, est devenue en quelques années, le traitement de première intention pour les troubles du tonus de l'enfant paralysé cérébral. Ce traitement a démontré son efficacité et sa sécurité : ainsi en 2009 en France, l'AFSSAPS a étendu ses autorisations pour la toxine botulinique dans le traitement des membres supérieurs et inférieurs. Elle a donné également un cadre précis à son utilisation. Ce 4ème congrès du CMCR des Massues Croix-Rouge française dont celui de 2003 (toxine botulinique et membre inférieur) ayant permis un échange international des pratiques, évaluations et des résultats de ce traitement à l'époque. Ce congrès se focalise sur le membre supérieur avec également un partage d'expériences multidisciplinaires et internationales sur les évaluations, les indications et les prises en charge associées ainsi que la place des autres thérapeutiques.

  • Finding the right treatment for a young patient (< 60 years) with glenohumeral osteoarthritis is still a challenge. In case of failure of conservative therapy, surgical treatment must be considered. The indications for a surgical treatment depend not only on the radiological findings but also on the explicit age of the patients, their occupation, activity level, duration of symptoms, comorbidities and concomitant shoulder pathology.
    Arthroscopic management of glenohumeral arthritis includes capsular release, removal of loose bodies, subacromial decompression, axillary nerve neurolysis, biceps tenodesis, chondroplasty, microfracturing, and humeral osteophyte resection. This can result in pain relief, but usually does not improve shoulder motion. However, these effects are temporary and results are unpredictable.
    Furthermore, these techniques do not provide a definitive solution for advanced-stage glenohumeral arthritis. Osteotomy or bone graft in case of glenoid dysplasia has yielded disappointing results as well.
    Today, an unacceptable compromise in quality of life may constitute a valid indication for shoulder replacement in young patients who seek so-called «high-performance shoulders» to attain their expectations and aspirations. Initial pain relief and functional improvement are usually excellent after shoulder arthroplasty; however, these gains are short-lived in the younger population, with a dramatic decline in functional outcome and survival rate at mid- to long-term follow-up. The concerns about shoulder arthroplasty in this population are mainly due to the higher demands on the operated shoulder, the higher expectations regarding the surgical result, and the longevity of the prosthetic shoulder due to increased life expectancy.
    Younger patients who receive a total shoulder arthroplasty have a higher rate of glenoid component loosening and rotator cuff tears, likely related to higher activity levels, and therefore, alternative strategies have been sought. Hemiarthroplasty has been used as an alternative, with limited benefit in the long term, likely due to unaddressed glenoid disease and a substantial rate of glenoid erosion. Biologic resurfacing of the glenoid in conjunction with hemiarthroplasty has led to disappointing results. Reverse shoulder arthroplasty is sometimes needed in younger patients in specific and difficult cases, like failed cuff repair, failed instability surgery or posttraumatic arthritis. However, long-term results of this semi-constrained prosthesis remain to be proven in the younger population.
    We have invited colleagues and friends from different continents to report their surgical experience in this difficult field, and whom I thank for having accepted our invitation. We have also built a database including more than 1500 young patients with glenohumeral arthritis. The aim of the Nice multicenter study was to evaluate mid- to long-term outcomes following shoulder arthroplasty in patients younger than 60 years at the time of surgery. We have studied the results of shoulder arthroplasty in this challenging patient population according to the different etiologies, according to patients' age and have looked for complications. This study could not have been conducted without the hard work and motivation of all those who participated in it: surgeons, assistants, fellows, residents, staff, nurses, secretaries, and last but not least, our patients.
    We hope that the material presented here will help surgeons to better understand and resolve the difficult problem of glenohumeral arthritis in younger patients.

  • The arthroscopic Bankart procedure can be very successful in preventing recurrent shoulder instability and has a low complication rate. However, even if the surgeon masters this procedure, there are cases where the success is limited. Besides patients who have true recurrence of instability, some others remain with "shoulder apprehension", while others abandon their sport in the months or years following the procedure.
    Those are mainly cases with bony lesions, mostly of the glenoid, and to a lesser degree, of the humeral head. Glenoid deficiencies are becoming increasingly recognized in patients with anterior recurrent instability. In these cases, open bone block stabilization using the coracoid process (Bristow, Latarjet) or an iliac crest bone graft (Eden-Hybbinette) are regarded as the "gold standard". Criticism against the arthroscopic bone block procedures is based on reports of complications and failures.
    It is true that performing an arthroscopic Latarjet can be very dangerous if the surgeon does not master all details perfectly. The use of screws has also been associated most of the complications reported. On the other hand, nothing will stop the development of arthroscopic shoulder surgery. This is why, for more than fifteen years we have been working on the development of arthroscopic techniques that would be safe, reproducible, and using a means of fixation other than screws to fix the bone block on the glenoid neck.
    This Arthroscopic Shoulder Manual has been written to be a guide for surgeons whose goal is to master these safe arthroscopic techniques.

  • Current concepts : the digitized shoulder & updates on shoulder arthroscopy Nouv.

    This congress organized by Professor Boileau is a world reference in the field of shoulder surgery with speakers from all over the world. You will find in the table of contents all the subjects concerning digitized shoulder discussed at this conference.

  • The forearm is not a couple of two bones connecting the mobile elbow with the wrist/hand unit, the performing part of the upper limb. It is a real joint-system allowing to rotate the hand around a longitudinal axis, to better position the hand and to grasp objects. At each end a complex joint is present. Both bones have a well determinated anatomical special structure and both are connected with interosseous membrane of which the real function, pathology and treatment remain unrevealed. This is the framework of which this instructional course is dealing with. It is impossible to discuss the forearm without flirting with elbow and wrist joints. Both soft tissue and hardware problems, active and structural disorders, adults and children, congenital, acquired, degenerative, (post)traumatic pathology are discussed. It is obvious that the topic is incomplete. We have stressed on these problems which are specific to the forearm and not on those which involve the forearm as well as other joints. We are convinced that with this course a better understanding of this «forgotten» joint will be provided. All authors have a particular interest in the topic, have presented and published on his subject and their opinion is often the gold standard for a particular aspect of this subject.

  • What Are the Complications after Shoulder Arthroplasty? Can We Avoid Them?

    A concern regarding shoulder arthroplasty (SA) is the possible Intraoperative and postoperative complications that can jeopardize and/or compromize the functional results. Intraoperative complications during SA must be anticipated. Postoperative course after SA can be complicated by neurologic problems, periprosthetic fractures, rotator cuff tears, instability, stiffness, implant loosening, osteolysis, infection, and even death. In addition, there is a substantial rate of associated complications. Many questions remaine unanswered: What are exactly the complication rates after SA? What are the risk factors?

    The type and rate of complications depends highly on the diagnosis. For instance, we know now that the fracture sequelae patients had a higher rate of complications when compared with those operated for primary osteoarthritis. We also know that the rate of infection is higher in revisions than in the primary cases. In addition, there is a possibly higher complication rate with certain type of prosthesis: for instance, the rate of complications with the reverse shoulder arthroplasty (RSA) is higher than the ones observed with an anatomical, conventional unconstrained shoulder arthroplasty (ASA). The type of prosthesis fixation (cemented, press-fit or uncemented implants) may also influence the nature and rates of complications.

    The experience of the shoulder surgeon is, of course, one of the main factors that influence the intra and postoperative complication rates after SA. This is the reason why we have asked a group of shoulder experts to share their knowledge regarding their complications during and after SA. These experts were invited to participate to the Nice Shoulder Course - Current Concepts in Nice on June 7, 8, 9 2012. The reports of these experienced shoulder surgeons and analysis of the available literature represent the basis of this book.

    The goal of this book is therefore to determine: 1) the nature and rate of the complications after SA; 2) whether diagnosis influences the type and rate of complications (OA, RA, Fracture and Fracture Sequelae); 3) whether the type of prosthesis implanted influences these complications (hemi, total, reverse, stemless prostheses); 4) whether these complications affect functional results and scores after SA; and 5) how it is possible to prevent and avoid them.

    The information provided by this book should hopefully allow surgeons to improve their practice in order to prevent some of the complications, when possible, but also to give patients realistic expectations regarding the complication nature and rates after SA.

    The ambition of this book is to present the current state of knowledge and the latest concepts and approaches in both arthroscopic and arthroplastic shoulder surgery, as well as in fractures of the proximal humerus. This book, «Shoulder Concepts 2012», is based on the talks presented by a group of shoulder experts and friends in Nice, on June 7, 8, 9, during the Nice Shoulder Course 2012.

    These world leaders in shoulder surgery have accepted to share their knowledge with you. Let me thank them for the efforts they have made and the time they took from their practices, and more importantly from their families. The quality of instruction given at the Nice Shoulder Course is clearly determined by their enthusiasm and experience.

    We have tried to present the latest and more relevant information in anterior instability, posterior instability, acromio-clavicular joint separation, rotator cuff tears, muscle-tendons transfer, proximal humerus fractures, reverse prosthesis.

    It is our hope that this book will help you to give the best care to your patients. We hope to convince all the participants of the course and all the readers of this book that shoulder surgery is really a «nice surgery»!


  • Les avancées dans les sciences cognitives, favorisées par la puissance actuelle des techniques d'imagerie, ont largement confirmé que, pendant le développement précoce, certaines zones du cerveau de l'enfant sont destinées à assurer des fonctions spécifiques - neurologiques, cognitives, linguistiques, motrices et visuospatiales, notamment - et que le traitement de ces informations faisait intervenir des interconnections complexes globales avec d'autres régions, distribuées dans l'ensemble du cerveau : une lésion dans une zone donnée interfère avec le fonctionnement et la cohérence du système dans son entier.
    Cet ouvrage traite des conséquences des lésions cérébrales précoces dans de nombreuses régions du cerveau, notamment les noyaux gris centraux, avec leurs troubles associés - aphasie, TOC et TDAH - et la matière blanche et ses altérations neuropsychologiques associées de l'intelligence, du langage et de la perception visuelle. Le corps calleux et le cervelet sont étudiés dans la mesure où ils sont liés à l'apprentissage de séquences motrices et du langage, ainsi qu'avec les troubles de la communication et le comportement social.
    Cet ouvrage aborde également les neurones miroirs dans la mesure où ils affectent la compréhension des intentions des autres et le développement de l'empathie et de la gestuelle, mais également d'autres formes de langage.
    Les conséquences de ces résultats sont examinées sous l'angle de leur impact majeur sur les efforts de rééducation et d'éducation qui sont mis en place pour atténuer les effets des lésions cérébrales précoces chez l'enfant en croissance.

  • L'abord du rachis ne consiste pas uniquement en un geste technique car il s'intègre dans la prise en charge totale d'un être en souffrance.
    Ainsi, le fait opératoire doit être argumenté. certes, en tenant compte de critères anatomiques, physiologiques et cliniques, mais également moraux. en effet, la décision opératoire doit être préservée de tout lucre et vanité. ce modeste travail proposé atteindra son but, si dans l'indication chirurgicale cette dimension éthique est prise en compte.

  • Les diverses structures osseuses, cartilagineuses, synoviales et ligamentaires, qui constituent le squelette et les articulations du poignet, sont d'une complexité extrême, tant morphologique que mécanique. Le moindre mouvement se répercute à tout l'ensemble quel que soit sa nature : physiologique bien sûr, mais aussi pathologique, que se soit en rapport avec une lésion osseuse ou avec une atteinte ligamentaire. D'où la nécessité de considérer le carpe comme un tout suivant une "conception holistique" pour reprendre l'expression très heureuse de Kapandji. Nous avons regroupé dans les six premiers chapitres des notions fondamentales. Certaines sont connues d'autres beaucoup moins. Dans les chapitres suivants nous envisageons les différents tableaux cliniques rencontrés dans la pratique, ainsi que leur étiologie.

  • Nous avons délibérément souhaité aborder en quatre étapes les prothèses de genou sous un aspect original, pratique surtout très chirurgical: Nous avons appris avec le goniomètre à mesurer les axes. Fort de ces mesures nous avons amélioré nos techniques, la reproductibilité de notre chirurgie. Le deuxième volet du livre comporte l'intégration des surfaces: coefficient de frottement, usure mais aussi géométrie articulaire. Biomatériaux et dessins se côtoient. Les nouvelles technologies nous permettent désormais de mieux appréhender la troisième dimension incarnée par la notion de volume: il s'agit non seulement de l'encombrement prothétique mais aussi de l'analyse globale qui est devenue la somme des analyses élémentaires. Ce raisonnement permet une chirurgie mieux comprise intégrant le retentissement des choix réalisés à chaque étape. Mais ce raisonnement acquis au fil du temps dans les trois dimensions serait de peu de valeur pour nos opérés si la dimension fonctionnelle( humaine) ne reprenait tous ses droits dans la dernière partie de cet ouvrage. Les chapitres essentiels ont été rédigés par les intervenants européens. Souvent originaux, ils permettront aux chirurgiens de trouver les données qu'une communication ne permet pas de détailler. Nous espérons que ce livre du congrès sera à l'origine d'échanges et débats. Merci à tous ceux qui ont contribué à son élaboration. l'ALRM et son Président Philippe Neyret.

    • 29 Octobre 2014

    The goal of this book is to focus on the techniques and strategies available to treat highlydemanding patients with early osteoarthritis of the knee.

    Orthopaedic Surgeons are more and more faced with young and active patients who ask for quick solutions, seek pain-free knees and wish to participate in sports. Their expectations are constantly increasing and surgeons are afraid to disappoint them.

    Do recent technological innovations really improve outcomes? Is there still a place for corrective osteotomies in 2014? What are the true limits of Unicompartmental Knee Arthroplasties? How can we improve our perioperative strategy? Which sports activities can we authorize after surgery? What is the future of the treatment of knee osteoarthritis: Robotic surgery, Custom knee implants, Regenerative medicine?

    The Lyon School of Knee Surgery, in association with international renowned specialists, presents and analyzes the outcomes of different treatment options.

  • Anglais Anterior cruciate ligament


    • Sauramps medical
    • 1 Octobre 2016

    Indeed we have an unfortunately large number of failures - many of which are due to surgical mistakes. A critical and often overlooked part of performing an ACL reconstruction is to analyze all of the associated structures : What is the role and importance of the socalled anterolateral ligament or the anterolateral complex? How much do surgical technique, graft choice, tunnel location, and fixation methods influence outcomes? What is the role of biology and the menisci in restoring stability? Finally, what impact do rehabilitation, proprioception, muscular control and strength, and neurologic control have on return to sport following ACL reconstruction?

    We will develop and try to understand all of these aspects of ACL reconstruction.

  • Time flies! If I think that two years have passed since the last edition of the Nice Shoulder Course, and more than ten since the first edition, I can hardly believe it. Time flies when a lot of interesting things happen, and there is no time to stop or slow down, because things change and go ahead.

    And when I look back on the more than ten years since the first edition, I am happy to see that things have changed, and that we were able to say new things that have become common practice today.

    This is what keeps the Nice Shoulder Course a thrilling experience each and every edition. That we have the chance and honor to gather the opinion leaders of our specialty around a relatively small event compared to large international congresses.

    Judging from the feedback of our particpants, our aim has been attained for both the participants and the faculty, both tell us that they go home having learned (yes, even the Faculty). All say that they particularly appreciate the high level of exchange, the density and the proximity of the course.

    In keeping with our traditions, this new edition will again be very intense. It will be as intense as it's preparation was.

    I am very grateful to our Faculty, that they have agreed to share their knowledge with us, my assistants and colleagues who have spent long (and intense) hours behind the scientific work, to all our collaborators and the small, but very efficient team that manages the oh, so many and diverse aspects of this event, and without whom this course would not be what it is.

    Thank you, our participants, for your faithfulness and continuing interest. It is always with great joy that we see names that have become familiar over the years, and it is with just as much joy that we see the new ones. The number of names that have become familiar grows each year and this year we had to close the registrations well before the course.

    Last but not least, thank you to all the patients who presented to us with some shoulder pathology ; they all taught us something through all these years!

    I do hope that you will enjoy the course, as much as reading this book!
