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)

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)

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 ...
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 ...
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

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 ...

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 ...

Results and Discussion. The present study was conducted specifically for fracture of tibia and fibula in canine which was immobilized by employing IM pinning technique. Total number of 6 canine tibia and fibula fractures cases were included and stabilized with K-wire or Steinmann pin. In addition, case no. 2 was supported and immobilized with full cerclage wiring; whereas, double IM pinning method was employed in case no. 3. Out of 6 animals, 4 were closed fracture and other 2 animals were open fracture, among which case no. 2 was communited fracture. Among them, 2 were female and 4 were male animals. In majority of cases, the etiologies were automobile accident (4 animals) and followed by fall from height (2 animals). In case no. 1, the nature of fracture was open fracture of tibia with extensive accidental wound. Normograde IM pinning of tibia was done with post-operative Modified Robert Joness bandage. Here, due to extensive tissue lost there was severe infection of soft tissue and various ...
Open tibia fractures have a 15% or higher rate of not healing. Those fractures which do not heal are typically treated with bone from the hip (iliac crest autograft; or ICBG). The use of ICBG bone with the treatment of delayed unions/non-unions with critical defect, although successful, has its drawbacks. The bone graft sources are limited and the procedure is associated with additional operating room time plus a second incision with increased risk of infection, post operative pain and increased hospital stay. The purpose of this study is to determine if Rh-BMP2, a new bone graft substitute, is at least as effective as using bone from the hip (autograft) to help promote healing of open, tibia (shin bone) fractures.. Research Questions:. Primary:. What is the relative effect of rhBMP-2 versus autogenous ICBG on rates of union in patients with critical size defects following tibial shaft fractures?. Null hypothesis #1: rhBMP-2 has the same union rate when used in critical-sized defects as does ...
15 years ago, Emil Schemitsch saw a young business woman in the fracture clinic who had been recently treated for an open tibial fracture. She stated that she had been at a party wearing high heels, then fell over, and fractured her leg. Several years later, a lawyer told him that her leg had actually been hit with a baseball bat by her boyfriend. He had wondered how a fall from high heels could result in an open tibial fracture - it seemed highly improbable, but he had not pursued the true cause at the time in a very busy clinic.. Mohit Bhandari of McMaster University (see article Fall 2010) has been working with Emil on the Intimate Partner Violence (IPV) problem for the past several years. When Mo was a resident at McMaster, he and his wife, who is a social worker, started thinking about this issue. Mo and Emil subsequently connected and published a survey, which found that 87% of Canadian Orthopaedic surgeons believed IPV victims represented fewer than 1% of patients in their clinics. They ...
I had surgery on my broken tibial plateau in early March (Im 24 years old) while bike riding. The displaced fracture required a plate and 5 screws. I also had a meniscus tear. Its been just over 2 months since surgery. Ive been doing lots of PT for the past 8 weeks and just recently got the clear from the surgeon to start bearing weight! My extension is good (nearly 100%) but Im still not able to flex (bend) my leg all the way. Im currently able to walk with a limp a bit around my

|i|Introduction|/i|. The goal of this retrospective, observational, case series study was to evaluate the medium-long-term clinical and radiographic results of the three most common surgical osteosynthesis techniques used for the treatment of articular tibial pilon fractures: ORIF, MIPO, and EF.|i| Materials and Methods|/i|. A consecutive series of patients with articular pilon fractures who underwent surgery at our institution were enrolled in this study. Fractures were classified according to the Müller AO classification system. Overall outcomes took the following into account: radiographic quality of reduction, evaluated using Ovadia and Beals’ criteria; clinical assessment, evaluated using the AOFAS questionnaire; and general health, evaluated with the SF36-v2 Health Survey.|i| Results|/i|. A total of 94 articular pilon fractures (34 type 43-B and 60 43-C) were evaluated with a mean follow-up of 56.34 months (range 33–101). The techniques used were ORIF, MIPO, and EF in 63 (67&

We then got down to my detailed questions:. CAN I RESUME SKIING: Yes, the leg is strong enough to go skiing. I inquired whether it will hurt the first time and whether it will hurt when I have to twist out of bindings in a fall. Probably, he replied. The only way you will find out is to go and give it a try. It will be trial and error in the beginning Thats pretty good news. Montana, here I come.. WILL I BE MORE PRONE TO ARTHRITIS IN THE INJURED LEG? Yes you will be more prone to arthritis in your broken leg. It was a significant injury with surgical intervention. However, when that presents itself is anyones guess. You can delay the impact by keeping your quad strong, keeping your weight down and only doing low impact exercises, so as not to stress the knee joint too much. No running from here on. All of this was fine with me.. WILL MY LEG MAKE A COMPLETE RECOVERY? No. You have made an amazing recovery in the last 10 months. However, the injured knee will never be as good as the ...
J. Scott, editor of the Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery writes about a paper, Recombinant human morphogenetic protein-2 for type grade III open segmental tibial fractures from combat injuries in Iraq by Timothy Kuklo, et al, which appeared in the JBJS in August, 2008: The paper described the management of 138 Gustillo Type IIIB and C tibial fractures in soldiers injured in Iraq. It was a retrospective study with some randomization of these patients into two groups, one of which received bone morphogenetic protein-2 (rhBMP-2) as part of the management and the other did not. The authors reported a significantly higher union rate in the group treated with rhBMP-2 (92% vs 76%). There was also a higher rate of further surgery required in the patients who did not receive BMP. For the non-specialist, rhBMP-2 is sold commercially as Infuse and is marketed by Medtronic. And, the paper clearly seemed to represent a major contribution to the treatment of these severe complicated fractures which ...

Results In our adjusted multivariable regression models that included pre-injury SF-36 scores, SPOC scores at 6-weeks post-surgery accounted for 18% of the variation in SF-36 PCS scores and 18% of SF-36 MCS scores at 1-year. In both models, 6-week SPOC scores were a far more powerful predictor of functional recovery than age, gender, fracture type, smoking status, or the presence of multi-trauma. Our adjusted analysis found that for each 14 point increment in SPOC score at 6-weeks the odds of returning to work at 1-year decreased by 40% (OR = 0.60; 95% CI = 0.50 to 0.73).. ...
Background: Open fractures have been a challenge to clinicians for centuries and this scenario persists in the 21st century. Management protocols have been devised over the years including among others prophylactic antibiotic use (PAU). Optimum duration of antibiotic use has been extensively researched but still remains unresolved although most studies have recommended 24 to 72 hours of prophylaxis. Furthermore, no protocol exists on PAU in our set up and most clinicians prescribe for five days to several weeks. Therefore, there is need for further research in the quest to improve the effectiveness of prophylactic antibiotic use and its adoption in developing countries like Kenya. Objective: To determine the difference in infection rate between 24 hours versus five days of prophylactic antibiotic use for the management of Gustilo II open tibia fractures. Design: Prospective randomized comparative interventional study. Setting: Accident and Emergency department, orthopedic wards and orthopedic ...
The wounds have subsequently healed well with no further breakdown of the flap.. Discussion. The clinical case highlights the challenges faced when dealing with open tibia fractures. In this case there are two main management principles to note: first, the empiric choice of antimicrobials where water exposure has occurred and secondly, the use of acute limb shortening in the management of a fracture.. Management of water-contaminated wounds. Aeromonas hydrophilia is a Gram-negative bacillus found in fresh water masses. It was first described as a cause of gastroenteritis. Subsequently, it has been associated with infection in burns patients and secondary infection following treatment with therapeutic leech therapy.4. Fresh water. Fresh-water contamination is typically associated with Aeromonas species (spp.), Pseudomonas spp. Plesiomonas spp. and Ewardsiella tarda2,3 infections. Corynebacteria and Bacillus spp. are Gram-positive organisms also found in fresh water collections, and Gram-positive ...
Unreamed Intramedullary Nailing Versus External Fixation for Type IIIA and IIIB Open Fractures of Tibial Shaft: A Subgroup Analysis of Randomized Trials Abstract.
The fibula is one of the long bones on the lower part of the leg. The fibula is also known as the calf bone. It is located on the outside of the leg. It is just a small bone. When there is a fibula fracture, the bone of the fibula becomes broken. Hight impact movements, such as landing hard on the legs after jumping high or getting hit hard on the lower part of the leg can cause a fracture. Spraining or rolling on the ankle can cause a fracture to the fibula. When this happens, stress is placed on the fibula bone. Fibula fractures are common in sports that involve jumping, changing directions quickly, and running. Some sports that can cause a fibula fracture are football, soccer, and basketball. When you have a fibula fracture there are symptoms to look out for. There are eight known symptoms of a fibula fracture.. ...
Open tibia fractures are a major source of disability in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) due to the high incidence of complications, particularly infection and chronic osteomyelitis. One proposed adjunctive measure to reduce infection is prophylactic local antibiotic delivery, which can achieve much higher concentrations at the surgical site than can safely be achieved with systemic administration. Animal studies and retrospective clinical studies support the use of gentamicin for this purpose, but no high-quality clinical trials have been conducted to date in high- or low-income settings. We describe a protocol for a pilot study conducted in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, to assess the feasibility of a single-center masked randomized controlled trial to compare the efficacy of locally applied gentamicin to placebo for the prevention of fracture-related infection in open tibial shaft fractures. The results of this study will inform the design and feasibility of a definitive trial to address the use
Stress Fractures are areas on a bone that fatigue with either chronic overuse or an acute load that is more than the bone are tolerate. Stress fractures can develop into complete fractures as demonstrated by the photo above, so diagnosis is important if the demands of the activity allowed in rehabilitation could make the injury worse. So often the athlete is diagnosed with shin splints, and allowed to continue running. In this case, that was a mistake. So when is a shin splint really a stress fracture? Compression of the bone from side to side typically is sore with stress fractures not shin splints. A tuning fork, x rays, bone scan, and MRI are all used to help with the diagnosis. If the pain came on suddenly in an impact sport, the Golden Rule of Foot is that it is a stress fracture until proven otherwise. I am surprised on how many runners say the pain of their stress fracture was never more than a 3 or 4, so a low pain level may not be a good diagnostic tool with this injury. In runners, the ...
