  • distal
  • Nevertheless, in the subtrochanteric fractures and distal fractures, we apply the nail in a different fashion (see subtrochanteric and supracondylean fractures, and Figures 9 and 10). (vin.com)
  • Distal humeral fractures have traditionally been managed with surgical approaches that disrupt the extensor mechanism. (ovid.com)
  • We hypothesized that an extensor mechanism-on approach for operative fixation of distal humeral fractures with parallel or orthogonal plate constructs would allow excellent healing, a motion arc of the elbow exceeding 100°, and maintenance of extensor mechanism strength. (ovid.com)
  • Open treatment of distal humeral fractures with an extensor mechanism-on approach results in excellent healing, a mean elbow flexion-extension arc exceeding 100°, and maintenance of 90% of elbow extension strength compared with that of the contralateral, normal elbow. (ovid.com)
  • For each fifth metatarsal, an osteotomy was created 2.5cm distal to the proximal tuberosity aimed for the articulation between the fourth and fifth metatarsals to simulate a Jones fracture. (isakos.com)
  • plate
  • A fixation plate includes a set of threaded peg holes adapted to individually receive fixation pegs therethrough and non-threaded alignment holes having a relatively smaller diameter than the peg holes and preferably sized to closely receive a K-wire. (google.com)
  • One alignment hole is configured for aligning the plate during an osteotomy procedure, while other alignment holes are configured for use after fracture reduction and receive K-wires to temporarily stabilize the fracture and secure the plate to the bone and determine whether pegs inserted through adjacent respective peg holes will be properly located before drilling relatively larger holes for such pegs. (google.com)
  • each of said first set of peg holes is structurally adapted to engage the threaded head of one of the fixation pegs with a threaded head and retain the fixation pegs in a fixed angle relationship with said plate. (google.com)
  • Finite element-derived surrogate models of locked plate fracture fixation biomechanics. (springer.com)
  • We aimed to compare unreamed intramedullary nailing (UTN) and dynamic compression plate (DCP) with regard to fracture healing and complications in patients with closed tibial shaft fractures. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • implants
  • Two major disadvantages of these materials are their extreme stiffness, which causes stress shielding of the underlying bone, and the necessity, in a significant number of cases, of removing metallic implants after fracture healing is complete. (semanticscholar.org)
  • device
  • The invention refers to a prosthetic device for the application of simultaneous axial and transversal prestressing to obtain stable and elastic osteosynthesis of fractures. (google.co.uk)
  • When used for long bone fractures, the device is an intramedullar flexible bar, with which we apply adjustable and measurable axial prestressing in order to compress the bone fragments and preload the bone. (google.co.uk)
  • injury
  • Failure of bony healing, or fixation failure - if the bone quality is very poor and the fracture collapses before uniting, or the blood supply has been damaged by the injury, this may be very likely. (windsorupperlimb.com)
  • open fractures are best treated with an initial surgery to clean the wound and bone within 8 hours of the injury (a final surgery for open fractures can be delayed for 24-48 hours. (cvssvets.com)
