Abstract

The principal criteria guiding our activities have been as follows: a) the surgical method investigated must be simple and repeatable because we deal with a pathology which is chronic and evolutive; and, b) our pur­pose is to validate a surgical technique which could represent a potential improvement over the long-term results shown by other techniques.
