• severe
  • Due to the thin texture of soft tissues and low ductility of skin in lower extremities, these injuries usually lead to the extensive soft-tissue defects with severe open comminuted fractures, infection, and injuries of nerves and main vessels, which consist mostly of Gustilo type III-C injuries [ 2 Yazar S, Lin CH, Wei FC. (benthamopen.com)
  • laceration
  • A fracture in conjunction with an overlying laceration that tears the epidermis and the meninges, or runs through the paranasal sinuses and the middle ear structures, bringing the outside environment into contact with the cranial cavity is called a compound fracture. (wikipedia.org)
  • soft-tissue
  • The management of the extensive soft-tissue defects with open comminuted fracture has long been a great therapeutic challenge for orthopedic surgeons. (benthamopen.com)
  • Some claim that it stems from an 1898 experiment during the Spanish-American war by German military surgeon Friedrich [ 4 ], in which guinea pigs with contaminated soft-tissue wounds had lower rates of infection when debridement was performed within six hours. (hindawi.com)
  • Spanning fixation is particularly useful in open or highly comminuted fractures with an unstable soft-tissue envelope. (amjorthopedics.com)
  • The NBX, also suitable in open fractures with a stable soft-tissue envelope, can restore and maintain articular alignment by providing subchondral support and stability with fragment-specific fixation. (amjorthopedics.com)
  • classification
  • The data obtained from patients records was analysed retrospectively with regard to severity of the fracture (using classification system of Gustilo and Anderson) and incidence of infection over a three-month period [ 7 ]. (hindawi.com)
  • Occurs
  • Intraorally, if the fracture occurs in the tooth bearing area, a step may seen between the teeth on either side of the fracture or a space can be seen (often mistaken for a lost tooth) and bleeding from the gingiva in the area. (wikipedia.org)
  • limb
  • Polytrauma patients showed a significantly slower limb rehabilitation, a longer hospitalisation and a worse clinical result than patients with isolated fractures. (kuleuven.be)
  • orthopedic
  • The plaintiff s orthopedic surgeon testified that there was a direct connection between the decedent s initial hip fracture and his ultimate death. (jvra.com)
  • treatment
  • An analysis of the imaging features of such fractures and evaluation of the diagnostic value of various methods can provide imaging basics for the development of accurate and appropriate treatment options. (biomedcentral.com)
  • MIPO appears to be a promising and safe treatment alternative for comminuted fractures. (ac.ir)
  • complication
  • Infection of the pin sites (points where wires enter the skin) of the TSF is a common complication (estimates are that it affects 20% percent of patients). (wikipedia.org)
  • knee
  • A significant relationship was shown between the mobility of the knee and the localisation of the fracture. (kuleuven.be)
  • fixator
  • You could try to perform closed fusion of the hip using external fixator - as you reported joint surfaces have already been "prepared" by infection process. (hwbf.org)
  • Battle's
  • The hematoma may spread downwards and backwards behind the ear, which may be confused with Battle's sign (a sign of a base of skull fracture), although this is an uncommon finding so if present, intra-cranial injury must be ruled out. (wikipedia.org)
  • significant
  • In our prospective study a significant relationship was found between the types of fractures, the consolidation, the rehabilitation (including walking), the hospitalisation time and the full weight-bearing results. (kuleuven.be)
  • nonunion
  • A fracture with nonunion generally forms a structural resemblance to a fibrous joint, and is therefore often called a "false joint" or pseudoarthrosis (the Greek stem "pseudo-" means false and "arthrosis" means joint). (wikipedia.org)
