  • forearm
  • The fracture is sometimes referred to as a "dinner fork" or "bayonet" deformity due to the shape of the resultant forearm. (wikipedia.org)
  • pelvic fracture
  • She had a complex pelvic fracture that under normal circumstances could have waited another day or two prior to surgery, but since there are no other options in Haiti for injuries of this type we prepared our instruments and aroused the operative team. (blogspot.com)

  • volar plate
  • Although reduction loss in volar tilt and radial height occurred within four first months, volar plate was able to maintain fracture stabilization with radiographic parameters within functional range over the time in most patients of these elderly patients. (springer.com)
  • reduction

  • 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. (google.com)
  • Once closed reduction is accomplished, the bone is immobilized by application of a cast or by an apparatus exerting traction on the distal end of the bone. (thefreedictionary.com)

  • Smith's
  • The fracture is most commonly caused by people falling onto a hard surface and breaking their fall with outstretched hand (FOOSH)-falling with wrists flexed would lead to a Smith's fracture. (wikipedia.org)

  • injuries
  • Magnetic resonance (MR) imaging is of benefit when concomitant injuries of ligaments and triangular fibrocartilage complex (TFCC) are suspected or if a fracture is suspected but not demonstrated on routine radiographs. (radiologyassistant.nl)
  • Oblique
  • the orbital contents herniate into the maxillary sinus so that the inferior rectus or inferior oblique muscle may become incarcerated in the fracture site, producing diplopia on looking up. (thefreedictionary.com)
  • medial
  • The posterior surface articulates with the femoral trochlea of the distal femur and has a medial and lateral facet that meet in the midline to form a raised vertical ridge. (reviseanatomy.com)
  • shaft
  • The purpose of this study was to determine the biomechanical effects of treating femoral shaft fracture nonunion with an anti-rotation plate (AP) in addition to intramedullary nailing (IM) to provide a theoretical basis for their clinical application. (clinmedjournals.org)
  • Intramedullary nailing (IM) is the primary method for treating nonunion of femoral shaft fractures [ 1 ]. (clinmedjournals.org)
  • However, with the advancement of IM technique and the increasing clinical indications, the incidence rate of femoral shaft fracture nonunion, according to the literature review, was 0.8-2% [ 2 ]. (clinmedjournals.org)
  • Regarding its treatment, exchanging intramedullary nailing is considered as the golden standard treatment for femoral shaft fracture nonunion, with a cure rate of up to 70-100% [ 1 , 3 ]. (clinmedjournals.org)
  • However, several reports have suggested that this method may increase the risk of future femoral shaft fracture nonunion [ 4 , 5 ]. (clinmedjournals.org)
  • femoral
  • In children with open epiphyses, an equivalent fracture is the "epiphyseal slip", as can be seen in other joints, such as a slipped capital femoral epiphysis in the hip. (wikipedia.org)
  • forearm
  • The examination finding of tenderness of the distal radio-ulnar joint suggests an Essex-Lopresti injury in patients who have sustained high energy forearm trauma. (wikipedia.org)
