Fractures of the tibia. Can their outcome be predicted? (1/693)

We have carried out a prospective study to determine whether the basic descriptive criteria and classifications of diaphyseal fractures of the tibia determine prognosis, as is widely believed. A number of systems which are readily available were used, with outcome being determined by standard measurements including fracture union, the need for secondary surgery and the incidence of infection. Many validated functional outcomes were also used. The Tscherne classification of closed fractures proved to be slightly more predictive of outcome than the others, but our findings indicate that such systems have little predictive value.  (+info)

Treatment of tibial bone defects with the Ilizarov circular external fixator in high-velocity gunshot wounds. (2/693)

One of the applications for circular external fixators is the treatment of large-bone defects which may be difficult to manage with conventional methods. Successful results have been reported with the use of circular external fixators, particularly in the treatment of infected tibial pseudoarthroses and those with bone loss. In this study, a total of 43 cases with tibial bone defects (18 infected) as a result of high-velocity gun-shot injuries were treated with circular external fixators between January 1, 1988 and December 31, 1995. The mean follow-up period was 50 months (range: 28-98 months) after the removal of the Ilizarov device. Satisfactory union was obtained in 40 cases without any major complication or additional surgical intervention, in spite of the large and in some cases infected defects. We conclude that this is a safe method for the treatment of infected or noninfected tibial bone defects.  (+info)

Case report. Post-traumatic tibial recurvatum: resolution with growth. (3/693)

The outcome of proximal tibial fractures in children is often complicated by the development of malalignment. Progressive valgus deformity is frequently seen, but is known to correct spontaneously in a high proportion of cases; however, recurvatum of the tibia usually requires surgical intervention. We present a child with a proximal tibial metaphyseal fracture who developed increasing tibial recurvatum which corrected spontaneously.  (+info)

Percutaneous autologous bone marrow grafting on the site of tibial delayed union. (4/693)

Six months after injury, 150 mL of autogenous bone marrow was applied percutaneously at the site of delayed union to stimulate the healing of a tibial delayed union fracture in a 44 year-old man. Five months following the procedure, the fracture gaps and bone defects were completely filled with callus, the external fixator was removed, and the patient started using normal leg loading.  (+info)

Enhancement of osteogenesis in vitro and in vivo by a novel osteoblast differentiation promoting compound, TAK-778. (5/693)

TAK-778 [(2R,4S)-(-)-N-(4-diethoxyphosphorylmethylphenyl)-1,2,4, 5-tetrahydro-4-methyl-7, 8-methylenedioxy-5-oxo-3-benzothiepin-2-carboxyamide; mw 505.53], a novel osteoblast differentiation promoting compound, was characterized in vitro and in vivo models. TAK-778 at doses of 10(-6) M and higher promoted potently bone-like nodule formation in the presence of dexamethasone in rat bone marrow stromal cell culture. This was accompanied by increases in cellular alkaline phosphatase activity, soluble collagen release, and osteocalcin secretion. Under the culture conditions, TAK-778 also stimulated the secretion of transforming growth factor-beta and insulin-like growth factor-I, indicating that TAK-778 may exert regulatory effects on osteoblast differentiation via autocrine/paracrine mechanisms. Furthermore, the in vivo osteogenic potential of TAK-778 was studied in bony defect and osteotomy animal models, using sustained release microcapsules consisted of a biodegradable polymer, poly (dl-lactic/glycolic) acid (PLGA). Single local injection of TAK-778/PLGA-microcapsules (PLGA-MC) (0.2-5 mg/site) to rat skull defects resulted in a dose-dependent increase in new bone area within the defects after 4 weeks. When the pellet containing TAK-778/PLGA-MC (4 mg/pellet) was packed into place to fill the tibial segmental defect in rabbit, this pellet induced osseous union within 2 months, whereas the placebo pellet did not. In addition, single local application of TAK-778/PLGA-MC (10 mg/site) to rabbit tibial osteotomy site enhanced callus formation accompanied by an increase in breaking force after 30 days. These results reveal for the first time that a nonendogenous chemical compound promotes potently osteogenesis in vitro and enhances new bone formation during skeletal regeneration and bone repair in vivo and should be useful for the stimulation of fracture healing.  (+info)

Nonunion of tibial stress fractures in patients with deformed arthritic knees. Treatment using modular total knee arthroplasty. (6/693)

In two years we treated four women with ununited stress fractures of their proximal tibial diaphyses. They all had arthritis and valgus deformity. The stress fractures had been treated elsewhere by non-operative means in three patients and by open reduction and internal fixation in one, but had failed to unite. After treatment with a modular total knee prosthesis with a long tibial stem extension, all the fractures united. A modular total knee prosthesis is suitable for the rare and difficult problem of ununited tibial stress fractures in patients with deformed arthritic knees since it corrects the deformity and the adverse biomechanics at the fracture site, stabilises the fracture and treats the arthritis.  (+info)

Correction of genu recurvatum by the Ilizarov method. (7/693)

The Ilizarov apparatus was used to carry out opening-wedge callotasis of the proximal tibia in ten patients who had suffered premature asymmetrical closure of the proximal tibial physis and subsequent genu recurvatum. In four knees, the genu recurvatum was entirely due to osseous deformity, whereas in six it was associated with capsuloligamentous abnormality. Preoperatively, the angle of recurvatum averaged 19.6 degrees (15 to 26), the angle of tilt of the tibial plateau, 76.6 degrees (62 to 90), and the ipsilateral limb shortening, 2.7 cm (0.5 to 8.7). The average time for correction was 49 days (23 to 85). The average duration of external fixation was 150 days (88 to 210). Three patients suffered complications including patella infera, pin-track infection and transient peroneal nerve palsy. At a mean follow-up of 4.4 years, all patients, except one, had achieved an excellent or good radiological and functional outcome.  (+info)

Transcranial doppler detection of fat emboli. (8/693)

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: The fat embolism syndrome (FES) is characterized by the simultaneous occurrence of pulmonary and neurological symptoms as well as skin and mucosal petechiae in the setting of long-bone fractures or their surgical repair. Its pathophysiology is poorly understood, and effective treatments are lacking. We present 5 patients with long-bone fractures in whom in vivo microembolism was detected by transcranial Doppler. METHODS: Five patients with long-bone fractures were monitored with transcranial Doppler for microembolic signals (MESs) after trauma. Two patients also had intraoperative monitoring. A TC-2020 instrument equipped with MES detection software was used. Detected signals were saved for subsequent review. Selected signals satisfied criteria defined previously and were categorized as large or small. RESULTS: Cerebral microembolism was detected in all 5 patients and was transient, resolving within 4 days of injury. Intraoperative monitoring revealed an increase in MESs during intramedullary nail insertion. The characteristics of MESs after injury varied among patients, with large signals being more frequent in the only patient with a patent foramen ovale. CONCLUSIONS: Cerebral microembolism after long-bone fractures can be detected in vivo and monitored over time. These findings may have potential diagnostic and therapeutic implications.  (+info)

Intra-articular fractures of the tibial plafond are typically the result of rotational or axial loading forces, and both mechanisms of injuries can result in an associated fibula fracture. Rotational distal tibial plafond fractures are typically of lower energy and are associated with less articular injury and chondral impaction, whereas axial load injuries of the distal tibial plafond are associated with a higher incidence of intra-articular and soft tissue injury. The goal of this article is to review the mechanisms of injury, fracture patterns, and potential complications associated with the most common presentations of tibial plafond fractures.

Surgical fixation of tibial plateau fracture in elderly patients with open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF) provides inferior outcomes compared with younger patients. Primary total knee arthroplasty (TKA) may be of benefit in elderly patients with a combination of osteoporotic bone and metaphyseal comminution. However, there continues to be conflicting evidence on the use of TKA for primary treatment of tibial plateau fracture. This systematic review was performed to quantify the outcomes and perioperative complication rates of TKA for primary treatment of tibial plateau fracture. A comprehensive search of MEDLINE, Embase, and PubMed databases from inception through March 2018 was performed in accordance with PRISMA guidelines. Two reviewers independently screened papers for inclusion and identified studies featuring perioperative complications and outcomes of primary TKA for tibial plateau fracture. Weighted means and standard deviations are presented for each outcome. Seven articles (105
AimsThe aim of this study was to develop a psychometrically sound measure of recovery foruse in patients who have suffered an open tibial fracture.MethodsAn initial pool of 109 items was generated from previous qualitative data relating torecovery following an open tibial fracture. These items were field tested in a cohort ofpatients recovering from an open tibial fracture. They were asked to comment on thecontent of the items and structure of the scale. Reduction in the number of items led to arefined scale tested in a larger cohort of patients. Principal components analysis permittedfurther reduction and the development of a definitive scale. Internal consistency, testretestreliability, and responsiveness were assessed for the retained items.ResultsThe initial scale was completed by 35 patients who were recovering from an open tibialfracture. Subjective and objective analysis permitted removal of poorly performing itemsand the addition of items suggested by patients. The refined scale ...
High-energy tibial plateau fracture poses a significant challenge and difficulty for orthopaedic surgeons. Fracture of tibial plateau involves major weight bearing joint and may alter knee kinematics. AnatomicReconstruction of the proximal tibial articular surfaces, restoration of the limb axis (limb alignment) and stable. Fixation permitting early joint motion is the goals of the treatment. In cases of complex bicondylar tibial plateau fractures, isolated lateral plating is frequently associated with varus malalignment and better results have been obtained with bilateral plating through dual incisions. However sometimes a complex type of bicondylar tibial plateau fractures is encountered in which medial plateau has a biplanar fracture in posterior coronal plane as well as sagittal plane. In such fractures it is imperative to fix the medial plateau with buttressing in both planes. One such fracture pattern of the proximal tibia managed by triple plating through dual posteromedial and ...
Tibial fractures usually fall into three categories. Shaft fractures occur along the shaft of the bone, and are usually the most common and most severe. Tibial plateau fractures occur around the knee joint and may involve the cartilage on the top of the tibia in the knee joint. Tibial plafond fractures occur at the bottom of the tibia around the ankle joint, and may involve damage to the cartilage or soft tissues of the ankle joint.. ...
An irreducible ankle-fracture dislocation characterized by the dislocation of the proximal fragment of the fibula posteriorly to the tibial tubercle is defined as Bosworth injury. In the present report it is described, for the first time in literature, a complex case where the Bosworth injury was associated to a tibial plafond fracture: the proximal fibular fragment was entrapped between the tibial pilon and the fractured posterior tibial tubercle, which acted as a clamp, thus avoiding ankle reduction. Due to the presence of the tibial fracture, it was not possible to observe the typical radiological signs of Bosworth injury and therefore two unsuccessful reductions were attempted before performing a CT scan that revealed the complexity of the case, that required an immediate ORIF procedure to prevent the onset of complications ...
The Data obtained was statistically analyzed using Microsoft Excel and IBM SPSS Statistics software (Version 23). The data was summarized using percentages, mean and standard deviation. Difference in distribution of cases was analyzed using chi square test of goodness of fit. Chi square test of association was used to study association of qualitative data such as fracture type, category of oxford score and range of motion. Difference in average final outcome in terms of MPTA and PPTA with respect to range of motion was studied using unpaired t test at 95% confidence interval. Pearsons Correlation coefficient was used to study various correlations among data obtained.. Results. In this prospective study, 30 patients of fresh Schatzker type V and VI tibial plateau fractures satisfying study criteria were included. The mean age of the patients was observed to be 31.7 years (range 19-50 years) with a male dominance (93%). The most common mode of injury observed in our study was road traffic ...
OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the results of closed and open grade I and II tibial shaft fractures treated by reamed nail and unreamed nailing. SUBJECTS AND METHODS: Between 1997 and 2000, 119 patients with tibial shaft fractures were treated with reamed tibial nails. Postoperatively 96 patients (70 closed and 26 grade I and II open fractures) were followed clinically and radiologically for up to 18 months. The nail was inserted either by patellar tendon splitting or by nonsplitting technique. The nail was inserted after overreaming by 1.5 mm. Postoperatively, patients with isolated tibial fracture were mobilized by permitting partial weight bearing on the injured leg for 6 weeks. Patients with associated ankle fractures were allowed to walk with a Sarmiento cast. RESULTS: Postoperatively, 6 (6.3%) patients developed a compartment syndrome after surgery. In 48 (50%) cases, dynamization of the nail was carried out after a mean period of 12 weeks for delayed union. Overall, a 90.6% union was ob
Introduction. Extra-articular Distal tibia fractures are often difficult to treat since they are close to the ankle joint, usually associated with soft tissue injuries. Minimal invasive Plate osteosynthesis (MIPO) using Locking compression plate (LCP) has replaced the conventional open reduction method since smaller incision and indirect reduction preserves the fracture hematoma and soft tissue vascularity(1). Literature review suggest that both MIPO and Intramedullary nailing (IMN) has been successful in the management of these fractures, but the results are controversial among the two (2-4). MIPO is associated with wound problems, Plate prominence(5), mal-alignment and non-union(6). IMN avoids some of these problems but the technical difficulty in insertion and the risk of mal-union (7), anterior knee pain poses a great challenge in orthopaedics (4). Our hypothesis was that patients treated with IMN has a better outcome than treated with MIPO. The aim of this study is to compare the clinical, ...
Tibia plateau fractures are relatively uncommon, but they are among the most challenging intra-articular fractures to treat. These fractures can lead to early posttraumatic osteoarthritis (OA) and cause disability and constant pain. Currently, the most common treatment is open reduction and stable internal fixation (ORIF), allowing early mobilization of the knee. Tibial plateau fractures can be associated with several concomitant soft tissue injuries of the knee. Historically, the operativetreatment with internal fixation has also been related to an increased risk for serious wound complications. The purpose of this study was to investigate the current management and outcome of proximal tibia fractures. The study population consisted of various groups of patients with proximal tibia fractures treated between 2002 and 2013 at our level I trauma center. The study aimed to determine factors predicting the development of posttraumatic OA following tibial lateral or medial plateau fractures. Another ...
Introduction The treatment of displaced, extra-articular fractures of the distal tibia remains controversial. These injuries are difficult to manage due to limited soft tissue cover, poor vascularity of the area and proximity to the ankle joint. Surgical treatment options are expanding and include locked intramedullary nails, plate and screw fixation and external fixator systems. The nail and plate options are most commonly used in the UK, but controversy exists over which treatment is most clinically and cost-effective. In this multicentre randomised controlled trial we aim to assess ratings of disability 6 months postinjury in patients who have sustained a distal tibia fracture treated with either an intramedullary nail or plate and locking screw fixation.. Methods and analysis Adult patients presenting at trial centres with an acute fracture of the distal tibia will be considered for inclusion. A total of 320 patients will provide 90% power to detect a difference of 8 points in Disability ...
Objective: To determine whether low intensity pulsed ultrasound (LIPUS), compared with sham treatment, accelerates functional recovery and radiographic healing in patients with operatively managed tibial fractures. Design: A concealed, randomized, blinded, sham controlled clinical trial with a parallel group design of 501 patients, enrolled between October 2008 and September 2012, and followed for one year. Setting: 43 North American academic trauma centers. Participants: Skeletally mature men or women with an open or closed tibial fracture amenable to intramedullary nail fixation. Exclusions comprised pilon fractures, tibial shaft fractures that extended into the joint and required reduction, pathological fractures, bilateral tibial fractures, segmental fractures, spiral fractures |7.5 cm in length, concomitant injuries that were likely to impair function for at least as long as the patients tibial fracture, and tibial fractures that showed 1 cm gap after surgical fixation. 3105 consecutive patients

Poplital artery transection injury is potentially catastrophic, or even life-threatening. Severe traumas, including open fracture, gunshot, stabs, and knee dislocation and complex fracture of proximal tibia or distal femur, are the common causes of high rate of amputation due to popliteal artery trauma. No report mentions vascular injury associated with minimally displaced tibial plateau fracture in adult. A 30-year-old male presented with popliteal artery transection injury associated with minimally displaced tibial plateau fracture. He presented to emergency department, 6 h after fall from ground into a 1-m height hole. Physical examination suggested acute ischemia, with signs of paleness, coldness, anesthesia, hemorrhagic bullae below the right knee level. There was severe swelling and ecchymosis in popliteal fossa and around the leg with significant calf tenderness and pedal edema. Tibialis posterior, dorsalis pedis, and popliteal arterial pulses were not palpable. Radiograph suggested minimally

Surgical site infection (SSI) occurs in 3-10 % of patients with surgically treated tibial plateau fractures. This study aimed to evaluate the impact of SSI on patients outcome after fixation of tibial plateau fractures. We conducted a retrospective multicenter study in seven participating level I trauma centers between January 2005 and December 2014. All participating centers followed up with patients with SSI. In addition, three centers followed up with patients without SSI as a reference group. Descriptive data and follow-up data with patient-reported outcome scores (Knee Injury and Osteoarthritis Outcome Score [KOOS] and Lysholm knee scoring scale score) were evaluated. In summary, 287 patients (41 with SSI and 246 without SSI; average 50.7 years) with an average follow-up of 75.9 ± 35.9 months were included in this study.

OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the long-term radiological, clinical, and functional result of the intramedullary nailing in intra-articular distal tibia fractures.. DESIGN: Retrospective clinical study.. SETTING: Level II Trauma Hospital.. PATIENTS/PARTICIPANTS: Between December 2000 and December 2006, 185 consecutive intra-articular distal tibia fractures were admitted in our institution. Fifty fractures were included in the study. According to the OTA classification, there were 28 (56%) fractures type 43 C1 and 22 (44%) type 43 C2.. INTERVENTION: All fractures were treated with closed static intramedullary nailing with distal locking. In 37 (74%) patients, reduction of the articular extension of the fracture with additional internal fixation preceded the nailing. Fibula fixation was applied in 32 (64%) fractures. Routine dynamization of the fixation was performed in all cases at a mean time of 10 weeks postoperatively.. MAIN OUTCOME MEASUREMENTS: The mean follow-up was 42 months (range: 36-54 ...

A tibial plateau fracture is a break of the upper part of the tibia (shinbone) that involves the knee joint. Symptoms include pain, swelling, and a decreased ability to move the knee. People are generally unable to walk. Complication may include injury to the artery or nerve, arthritis, and compartment syndrome. The cause is typically trauma such as a fall or motor vehicle collision. Risk factors include osteoporosis and certain sports such as skiing. Diagnosis is typically suspected based on symptoms and confirmed with X-rays and a CT scan. Some fractures may not be seen on plain X-rays. Pain may be managed with NSAIDs, opioids, and splinting. In those who are otherwise healthy, treatment is generally by surgery. Occasionally, if the bones are well aligned and the ligaments of the knee are intact, people may be treated without surgery. They represent about 1% of broken bones. They occur most commonly in middle aged males and older females. In the 1920s they were called a fender fracture due ...

Q: A friend of mine fell skiing and you had to surgically fix their tibial plateau fracture. What sort of fracture is this and are these common injuries?
Tibial plateau fractures may occur due to high-speed accidents, fall from a height or low-impact stress or injury in a compromised bone due to cancer, infection or osteoporosis.
My question is, at my last post-op surgical visit, I was told that the bone isnt growing back at all. I had a bone graft inserted and thats all the bone thats there on X-ray. The surgeon has mentioned another major surgery (or more) which Im not keen for, but if it had to be…. Has anyone else had this issue with the bone not regrowing and an osteotomy performed?

It is generally thought that RA is safer than GA for example in patients with heart or pulmonary diseases. It is also known that the use of RA reduces postoperative need of opioids, which leads to improved respiratory function and reduced post operative disorientation, delirium and nausea.. Purpose of the study: Our purpose is to gain more information of the safety of RA in patients with tibial fracture. Our hypothesis is that RA is equally safe with GA.. Implementation: Research begins with a pilot study in which RA is compared with GA. There are about 65 tibial fractures operated in our centre every year. We randomize patients to GA group (n=25) and spinal anaesthesia group (n=25). We presume that RA is equally safe with GA. However, power analysis has been made presuming that RA will increase the risk of ACS. We calculated the sample size by assuming that the compartment pressure in RA group is 10 mmHg higher than in the GA group.. GA will be inducted by fentanyl, propofol and rocuronium. GA ...
Things like the patients health, age, and the nature of the fracture will all help to determine the proper treatment. If the injury is minor, patients may only need a splint or cast to prevent further movement and allow the bone to heal. They will typically need to use crutches for a while, as well. If the injury is severe, patients may need surgical intervention to realign their bones, and they may even require internal or external fixation (or a combination of both) to reposition the bones and keep them in place. Patients receive post-surgical pain medications and follow-up visits with physical therapists to help them heal.. Recovery from a tibial fracture may take anywhere from four to six months (or more) depending on the patients health and the extent of the injury. If you think you may have a tibia fracture, it is critical that you see a doctor for a treatment plan that is unique to your needs.. ...
