  • shoulder
  • We present a case of a 67-year-old man who sustained a severe, sword-like trauma to his left shoulder after a road traffic accident with associated isolated open Gustilo-Anderson IIIA humeral head-splitting fracture. (hindawi.com)
  • Head-splitting fractures are extremely rare and indicate a severe trauma to the shoulder joint. (hindawi.com)
  • a) Photography of the trauma during patient resuscitation indicated severe, sword-like injury to the left shoulder, with open fracture of the humeral head (arrow). (hindawi.com)
  • b) Preoperative anteroposterior X-ray of the left shoulder showing head-splitting fracture of the proximal humerus and presence of multiple foreign bodies (glass). (hindawi.com)

  • The technique of hybrid double plate osteosynthesis using the bicipital groove as anatomic landmark may re-establish shoulder function after complex proximal humerus fractures in two dimensions. (biomedcentral.com)

  • X-rays of the elbow and shoulder may also be obtained if the fracture appears to extend towards the metaphysis. (cancertherapyadvisor.com)
  • Methods
  • Methods: A biomechanical study was performed on nine fresh frozen cadaveric humeri, simulating a three-part proximal humerus fracture (Neer Classification). (scirp.org)
  • The book "Applied Fracture Mechanics" presents a collection of articles on application of fracture mechanics methods to materials science, medicine, and engineering. (tailieu.vn)
  • In addition, the book presents mathematical and computational methods underlying the fracture mechanics applications, and also developments in statistical modeling of fatigue. (tailieu.vn)
  • It uses methods of analytical solid mechanics to calculate the driving force on a crack and those of experimental solid mechanics to characterize the material's resistance to fracture.In modern materials science, fracture mechanics is an important tool in improving the mechanical performance of materials and components.

  • medial
  • The missing restoration of the medial cortical support has been identified being responsible for an increased failure rate [ 1 , 2 ] and nonunions [ 3 ] of the proximal Humerus. (biomedcentral.com)
  • Classification
  • Translation between the Neer- and the AO/OTA-classification for proximal humeral fractures: do we need to be bilingual to interpret the scientific literature? (beds.ac.uk)
  • The reporting and interpretation of data from clinical trials of proximal humeral fractures are hampered by the use of two partly incommensurable fracture classification systems: the Neer classification and the AO/OTA classification. (beds.ac.uk)
  • We encourage surgeons and researches to report data from both classification systems for a more thorough description of the fracture patterns and to enable cross-checking of the coding. (beds.ac.uk)
  • implants
  • 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)
