  • Radiographs
  • Radiographs showed a fracture of the waist of the scaphoid ( Figure 1 ). (amjorthopedics.com)
  • A,B) AP and lateral radiographs of a 62-year-old woman with a compound grade II distal humeral fracture. (orthogate.org)
  • CT imaging was used to further assess any fracture seen on plain radiographs, and MRI imaging was used if no fracture was seen on plain radiographs. (acfas.org)
  • Immobilization should continue until repeat radiographs show callus formation and healing across the fracture site. (medscape.com)
  • [ 3 ] Arundel et al suggest that clinical gestalt is sensitive for detecting fractures, but that the clinical prediction rule increases specificity (identifying which adults do not need imaging), decreasing the number of negative radiographs. (medscape.com)
  • soft tissue
  • A - fractures with minor soft tissue injury, whose viability is fully preserved or slightly impaired. (healthtipsing.com)
  • fracture with strong irreversible damage to soft tissue, the removal of which is inevitable for maintaining health. (healthtipsing.com)
  • 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)
  • It is important to recognize the intimate relationship of these 3 tissues (bone, soft tissue, and scar) when treating hand fractures. (scribd.com)
  • The potential soft tissue problems that are often associated with each type of fracture are explained, with preventative methods of splinting and treatment. (scribd.com)
  • It is a mistake to consider fracture healing apart from soft tissue healing, because successful outcomes require the return of functional integrity to both tissues. (scribd.com)
  • These fracture configurations also allow relatively easy interfragmentary stabilization of all fracture planes without significant disruption of the surrounding soft tissue envelope. (vin.com)
  • From our experience with this method, we believe it will be useful in cases of acute calcaneal fracture with pronounced soft tissue injury localized to the hindfoot. (podiatryarena.com)
  • humerus
  • Fractures of the distal humerus are less common than other fractures frequently encountered by orthopaedic surgeons yet when encountered, often provide significant challenges in management. (orthogate.org)
  • Premises liability - Failure to maintain sidewalk - Elderly plaintiff trips and falls on uneven sidewalk abutting defendant garden apartment complex - Fracture of distal humerus on dominant side - Surgery - Significantly reduced independence. (jvra.com)
  • transverse
  • For example, transverse fractures have small gap lengths (when reduced) and, therefore, inherently concentrate motion. (vin.com)
  • severity
  • Multiple X-rays and other imaging studies such as CT and MRI scans may be used to identify the location and severity of the fracture. (lcmortho.com)
  • The management of the fracture is based on the severity of the fracture, medical condition of the patient and the patient's lifestyle. (lcmortho.com)
  • humeral shaft
  • The lateral component of the humeral condyle appears to have the weakest attachment to the humeral shaft and fractures most frequently (56 and 57% of cases, respectively). (vin.com)
  • elbow
  • A Bryan-Morrey or triceps splitting approach can be employed for distal humeral fractures where conversion to a total elbow is a possibility. (orthogate.org)
  • It has been suggested that radiologic imaging studies may be unnecessary for the evaluation of elbow fractures and dislocations if the active range of motion (including extension, flexion, supination, and pronation) remains normal. (medscape.com)
  • callus
  • Our body reacts to a fracture by protecting the injured area with a blood clot and callus or fibrous tissue. (woc.com.au)
