  • minimally
  • While several tools to measure PROMs are readily available, there is no literature that reports QOL after minimally invasive antero-posterior treatment of thoracic and thoracolumbar fractures using a cage. (springer.com)
  • Meyers 1959) Type I fractures are nondisplaced or minimally displaced. (posna.org)
  • Nondisplaced or minimally displaced fractures can often be treated non operatively with either casting or bracing in full extension or slight flexion for approximately 6 weeks. (posna.org)
  • Minimally displaced distal humeral fractures in the elderly, who are not candidates for surgery, can be treated with cast immobilization. (orthogate.org)
  • lateral malleolus
  • The distal fibula or lateral malleolus is bound to the distal tibia by the anterior and posterior inferior tibiofibular ligaments, an inferior transverse ligament, and a syndesmosis ligament. (medscape.com)
  • The gravity line passes slightly anterior to the S2 segment, behind the axis of the hip joint, slightly anterior to the transverse axis of rotation of the knee (slightly posterior to the patella), crosses anterior to the lateral malleolus, and through the cuboid-calcaneal junction to fall between the heel and metatarsal heads when viewed laterally during good postural balance.

  • Trauma
  • Between 2002 and 2006, 33 patients with a median ISS of 14.3 were admitted to our hospital, a level I trauma centre, with a bicondylar tibial plateau fracture. (biomedcentral.com)
  • This blog highlights interesting, unusual, or complex fracture cases that were treated at or referred to the Orthopaedic Trauma Surgery Service at Harborview Medical Center, University of Washington in Seattle, Washington. (blogspot.com)
  • These fractures occur as a result of high-velocity trauma such as road traffic accidents, particularly in younger patients, and are associated with significant morbidity and mortality [ 6 ], including sciatic nerve injury and early post-traumatic arthritis. (biomedcentral.com)
  • occur
  • These complications can occur in fractures treated either nonsurgically or surgically, and with both open and arthroscopic surgical techniques. (posna.org)
  • vertebral body
  • The majority of these vertebral augmentation procedures are performed to relieve back pain from osteoporotic or cancer-related vertebral compression fractures and to reinforce the vertebral body with neoplasm or vascular tumor. (bmj.com)
  • The given report concerns the method of surgical treatment of vertebral body comminuted fractures. (romj.org)
  • During an X-ray imaging the L 1 vertebral body compression and comminuted fracture ( Figure 2а) has been revealed. (romj.org)
  • A fracture line crossed upper and lower endplates (type А in F. Denis classification), and as a result big vertebral body ventral fragment formed ( Figure 2b). (romj.org)
  • classification
  • The primary fracture type was a 62-A2.3 fracture according to the AO/OTA Classification.Surgical excision and anatomical reconstruction of the acetabular wall using heterotopic ossific bone were performed 10 months after the fracture repair. (biomedcentral.com)
  • According to Schatzker's classification [ 3 , 4 ], these fractures are divided into six groups: S-I to S-VI. (biomedcentral.com)
  • On the other hand, the Lauge-Hansen classification system is complex and cumbersome due to the need to understand the different stages of pathological damage in addition to the fracture pattern depending on the injury mechanism. (biomedcentral.com)
  • Fractures are identified as type I, II, and III by the Meyers and McKeever classification. (posna.org)
  • This classification system had been modified by Zaricznyj to include type IV or comminuted fractures. (posna.org)
  • Computed Tomography
  • Clinical evaluation and computed tomography of his head and face revealed a small intraparenchymal hemorrhage of the right posterior temporal lobe, as well as a comminuted left parasymphyseal fracture and a displaced left mandibular angle fracture extending up thru the coronoid process (Figure 1). (thefreedictionary.com)
  • This case report is the first documentation of atlantoaxial instability caused by a traumatic odontoid process synchondrosis fracture in a calf diagnosed by radiography and further characterised by computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). (biomedcentral.com)
  • surgical
  • The purpose of this study is to assess the advantages of modified ilioinguinal approach in combined surgical exposures for displaced acetabular fractures involving two columns management. (springeropen.com)
  • Surgical treatment for acetabular fractures is difficult and technically demanding. (springeropen.com)
  • A more detailed knowledge of the fracture pattern can be helpful in determining the optimal management, directing the surgical approach, and selecting appropriate implants. (orthogate.org)
  • After posterior surgical approach there have been by two bone screws administered into Th 12 and L 2 spondyles. (romj.org)
  • complications
  • Complications associated with these fractures are not infrequent, and include laxity, nonunion, malunion with resultant extension block, growth plate disturbance, and arthrofibrosis. (posna.org)
  • clinical
  • 2006 ). The purpose of this study is to assess clinical efficiency using the modified ilioinguinal approach combined with Kocher-Langenbeck approach for displaced acetabular fractures involving two columns. (springeropen.com)
