  • maintain fracture
  • Successful rehabilitation of hand fractures addresses the need to (1) maintain fracture stability for bone healing, (2) introduce soft tissue mobilization for soft tissue integrity, and (3) remodel any restrictive scar from injury or surgery. (scribd.com)
  • elderly
  • Schmelzer-Schmied N, Wieloch P, Martini AK, Daecke W (2009) Comparison of external fixation, locking and non-locking palmar plating for unstable distal radius fractures in the elderly. (springer.com)
  • Though Austin Moore (AM) replacement prosthesis has fairly good short term results for intracapsular femoral neck fractures in the elderly, it still is a compromised option and has a high failure rate in the long run. (ijoonline.com)
  • Condylar
  • Condylar fractures can be broadly classified as lateral, medial or intercondylar. (vin.com)
  • Condylar fractures usually result from a violent upward stress transmitted through the head of the radius onto the humeral trochlea. (vin.com)
  • Spaniel breeds of dogs appear to be more prone to condylar fractures. (vin.com)
  • Placement of a transcondylar lag screw is recommended as a prophylactic measure in view of the high risk of condylar fractures in dogs with IOHC (Marcellin-Little et al 1994). (vin.com)
  • Falls, jumping and sudden turns at exercise are the most common causes of lateral or medial condylar fractures. (vin.com)
  • Lateral and medial condylar fractures affect predominantly immature dogs (peak age incidence at 4 months) whilst intercondylar fractures tend to be more evenly distributed between skeletally mature and immature dogs. (vin.com)
  • An olecranon osteotomy provides the best exposure for most cases of comminuted intra-condylar distal humeral fractures. (orthogate.org)
  • Lateral
  • Good quality Anteroposterior and lateral radiographs of the injured extremity should be obtained to know about the fracture pattern, presence of comminution, medullary canal dimensions and the amount of femoral bow. (blogspot.com)
  • A,B) AP and lateral radiographs of a 62-year-old woman with a compound grade II distal humeral fracture. (orthogate.org)
  • This fracture involves the medial and lateral malleoli and the anterior or posterior margin of the tibia. (biomedcentral.com)
  • medial
  • In the face of even greater stress the medial part of the condyle is also sheared off giving rise to an intercondylar ('Y' or 'T') fracture (33 and 40 % of cases, respectively). (vin.com)
  • Solitary fractures of the medial condyle occurred far less frequently (11 and 3 % of cases, respectively). (vin.com)
  • surgery
  • It may be necessary to pin the fracture with surgery so that the pieces will have a chance to knit together. (wisegeek.com)
  • The follow-up protocol included: a clinical evaluation 15 days after surgery, and clinical and radiographic evaluations performed at 30 and 60 day intervals, unless any complications were reported by the patient. (springer.com)
