The role of fibular length and the width of the ankle mortise in post-traumatic osteoarthrosis after malleolar fracture. (1/515)

We assessed the role of fibular length and the width of the ankle mortise as risk factors in the occurrence of post-traumatic osteoarthritis of the ankle joint by comparison of radiographs of the affected and unaffected sides. A shortened fibular malleolus (P < 0.01), a wide ankle mortise (P < 0.01) and Weber type B fracture (P < 0.01) were significantly associated with the development of osteoarthrosis but an elongated fibular (P > 0.05) and a narrowing of the ankle mortise (P > 0.07) were not.  (+info)

Avulsion fracture of the anterior half of the foramen magnum involving the bilateral occipital condyles and the inferior clivus--case report. (2/515)

A 38-year-old male presented with an avulsion fracture of the anterior half of the foramen magnum due to a traffic accident. He had palsy of the bilateral VI, left IX, and left X cranial nerves, weakness of his left upper extremity, and crossed sensory loss. He was treated conservatively and placed in a halo brace for 16 weeks. After immobilization, swallowing, hoarseness, and left upper extremity weakness improved. Hyperextension with a rotatory component probably resulted in strain in the tectorial membrane and alar ligaments, resulting in avulsion fracture at the sites of attachment, the bilateral occipital condyles and the inferior portion of the clivus. Conservative treatment is probably optimum even for this unusual and severe type of occipital condyle fracture.  (+info)

These injuries are preventable, and increasing public awareness of the risk of sledging in public places may reduce the incidence.  (+info)

Prevention of skin and soft tissue entrapment in tibial segment transportation. (4/515)

We report of a ten year old patient with soft tissue damage and bone defect of the tibia as a sequel of osteomyelitis. After excision and stabilization with an Ilizarov fixateur segment transportation was started.

Failure of reduction with an external fixator in the management of injuries of the pelvic ring. Long-term evaluation of 110 patients. (5/515)

We reviewed 110 patients with an unstable fracture of the pelvic ring who had been treated with a trapezoidal external fixator after a mean follow-up of 4.1 years. There were eight open-book (type B1, B3-1) injuries, 62 lateral compression (type B2, B3-2) and 40 rotationally and vertically unstable (type C1-C3) injuries. The rate of complications was high with loss of reduction in 57%, malunion in 58%, nonunion in 5%, infection at the pin site in 24%, loosening of the pins in 2%, injury to the lateral femoral cutaneous nerve in 2%, and pressure sores in 3%. The external fixator failed to give and maintain a proper reduction in six of the eight open-book injuries, in 20 of the 62 lateral compression injuries, and in 38 of the 40 type-C injuries. Poor functional results were usually associated with failure of reduction and an unsatisfactory radiological appearance. In type-C injuries more than 10 mm of residual vertical displacement of the injury to the posterior pelvic ring was significantly related to poor outcome. In 14 patients in this unsatisfactory group poor functional results were also affected by associated nerve injuries. In lateral compression injuries the degree of displacement of fractures of the pubic rami caused by internal rotation of the hemipelvis was an important prognostic factor. External fixation may be useful in the acute phase of resuscitation but it is of limited value in the definitive treatment of an unstable type-C injury and in type-B open-book injuries. It is usually unnecessary in minimally displaced lateral compression injuries.  (+info)

The influence of stiffness of the fixator on maturation of callus after segmental transport. (6/515)

The treatment of large bony defects by callus distraction is well accepted, but the duration of treatment is long and the rate of complications increases accordingly. We have examined the effect of the stiffness of the axial fixator on reducing the time for maturation of callus. We created a mid-diaphyseal defect of 15 mm in the metatarsal bone in sheep and stabilised it with a ring fixator. After four days a bony segment was transported for 16 days at 1 mm per day. After 64 days the animals were divided into four groups, three with axial interfragmentary movement (IFM) of 0.5, 1.2 and 3.0 mm, respectively, and a control group. The 3.0 mm IFM group had the smallest bone density (p = 0.001) and area of callus and the largest IFM after 12 weeks; it also had typical clinical signs of hypertrophic nonunion. The most rapid stiffening of the callus was in the 0.5 mm group which had the smallest IFM (p = 0.04) after 12 weeks and radiological signs of bridging of the defect. These results indicate that suitable dynamic axial stimulation can enhance maturation of distraction callus when the initial amplitude is small, but that a large IFM can lead to delayed union.  (+info)

The biology of fracture healing: optimising outcome. (8/515)

Optimising the results of fracture treatment requires a holistic view of both patients and treatment. The nature of the patient determines the priority targets for outcome, which differ widely between the elderly and the young, and between the victims of high and low energy trauma. The efficacy of treatment depends on the overall process of care and rehabilitation as well as the strategy adopted to achieve bone healing. The rational basis for fracture treatment is the interaction between three elements: (i) the cell biology of bone regeneration; (ii) the revascularisation of devitalized bone and soft tissue adjacent to the fracture; and (iii) the mechanical environment of the fracture. The development of systems for early fracture stabilisation has been an advance. However, narrow thinking centred only on the restoration of mechanical integrity leads to poor strategy--the aim is to optimise the environment for bone healing. Future advances may come from the adjuvant use of molecular stimuli to bone regeneration.  (+info)

There is a significant trend towards early operative fixation of distal radial fractures. This is particularly common in unstable fractures, occurring in osteoporotic patients. In the past distal radial fractures were manipulated and placed in a plaster of Paris, and held either by just the plaster of Paris or wire fixation. However, due to the poor quality of bone, the wire was often cut out, and patients were left with a recurrent deformity and significant problems. Over the last five to ten years there has been development of special surgical plates, which allow the fracture to be fixed in an extremely stable configuration, even in the presence of thin, poor quality bone. Having performed this operative fixation, with a scar usually through the front of the wrist, but occasionally on the back, patients are mobilised within the first week of surgery.. ...

While the value of the internal fixation market greatly exceeds that of the external fixation market, external fixation has been gaining popularity with certain surgeon groups for specific indications since its introduction. This is due to surgeon preference for closed or minimally invasive treatment methods when possible. There are circumstances for which external fixation is clearly preferable, including open fractures with significant soft tissue damage, multiple trauma sites that require immediate fixation, and in patients where there is insufficient bone stock or when infection precludes the possibility of internal fixation ...

BACKGROUND: Although gunshot-induced extremity fractures are typically not considered open fractures, there is controversy regarding wound management in the setting of operative fixation to limit infection complications. Previous studies have evaluated the need for a formal irrigation and debridement (I&D) prior to intra-medullary nailing (IMN) of gunshot-induced femur fractures but none have specifically evaluated tibias. By comparing primary IMN for tibial shaft fractures caused by low-velocity firearms additionally treated with a formal operative I&D (group 1) with those without an I&D (group 2), we sought to identify whether there are: differences in treatment group infection rates; particular fracture patterns more prone to infection; and patient characteristics more prone to infections ...
Methods, systems, and devices according to this invention provide drill guides for optimal placement of fixation elements, such as half pins, into a patients bone. According to one embodiment, a collar frame (202) with a collar adapted (204) to receive a bar (270) of an orthopedic external fixation system such that the collar may be moved linearly or rotationally about the bar is coupled to a guide frame (224) including a bore (232) through which a fixation element (266) of the external fixation system may be inserted. The coupling between the collar frame and the guide frame allows for them to rotate about at least one axis relative to each other. In one embodiment, the collar frame and the guide frame may rotate about three axes relative to each other.

The assessment of MRI issues for external fixation systems is particularly challenging because of the myriad of possible components (many of which are made from conductive materials) and configurations used for these devices. The primary concern is MRI-related heating which is dependent on particular aspects (e.g., the lengths of the component parts) of the external fixation system. Importantly, the MRI conditions (strength of the static magnetic field, frequency of the RF field, type of RF transmit coil, pulse sequence, body part imaged, position of the fixation device relative to the transmit RF coil, etc.) used greatly impacts the safety aspects of scanning patients with external fixation systems.. To ensure patient safety, guidelines are typically applied on a case by case basis and, therefore, MR professionals are referred to product labeling approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration or other noitifed body for a given external fixation system. Notably, the acceptable MRI conditions ...

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. The alignment holes are located between the peg holes. 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. The head of the plate has a shape and contour which provides bone support and a low profile which minimizes the potential for soft tissue irritation.
1. INTRODUCTION. In external osteosynthesis, a number of pins interlinked by a frame go right through the fractured member (Fig. 1). Initially limited to long arm and leg bones, the external fixation models have been developed for nearly all parts of the human skeleton. Though considered at its advent as the last recourse before amputation, the external fixation has steadily found an important place in simple fracture management as well. The use of external fixation is, moreover, recommended in the treatment of both childrens and adults fractures..

Bipartite patella is a developmental variation in which the patella develops from 2 ossification centres.1 It occurs in about 2%-6% of the population, with a male predominance (ratio 8:1). It is bilateral in 43% of patients.2 In 1943 Saupe proposed the following radiological classification based on the position of the accessory ossification centre:3 type I (5% prevalence) involves the inferior pole of the patella and poses a high risk for fracture. Operative fixation may be required if there is disruption of the extensor mechanism. In type II (20% prevalence), the defect is located along the lateral patellar margin. The defect in the type III variant (75% prevalence), seen in our patient, is located at the superolateral pole of the patella. Most patients with bipartite patella have no symptoms and do not require treatment or referral. If there is no disruption to the extensor mechanism, symptomatic patients usually respond well to physiotherapy and analgesics. For a minority of patients for whom ...
