• Deformity
  • For simpler fractures where no deformity is present the struts may still be adjusted post-surgery to achieve better bone alignment, but the correction takes less time. (wikipedia.org)
  • The fracture is sometimes referred to as a "dinner fork" or "bayonet" deformity due to the shape of the resultant forearm. (wikipedia.org)
  • The Colles fracture is named after Abraham Colles (1773-1843), an Irish surgeon, from Kilkenny who first described it in 1814 by simply looking at the classical deformity before the advent of X-rays. (wikipedia.org)
  • tibial fractures
  • Methods: A total of 60 patients with comminuted femoral or tibial fractures were operated with MIPO method in this cross-sectional study at Alzahra university hospital in 2015. (ac.ir)
  • Results: Among 32 femoral and 17 tibial fractures, union was completed in48 patients, while only one patient with femoral fracture had nonunion. (ac.ir)
  • For tibial fractures union is generally achieved between 3 and 6 months though to union can be a rather subjective, and the dynamistion process combined with irregular appointment may interfere with these measures. (wikipedia.org)
  • Ankle
  • After diagnosed as fibular comminuted fracture and dislocation of ankle joint in his right leg, he received first stage surgery in Guangzhou on 19 September 2016 and second stage surgery in Germany in October 2016. (wikipedia.org)
  • dislocations
  • Common leg injuries include sprains and strains, joint dislocations, and fractures. (icdlist.com)
  • Under certain circumstances, radiographic examination of the nearby joints is indicated in order to exclude dislocations and fracture-dislocations. (wikipedia.org)
  • femoral
  • Effectiveness of Minimally Invasive Plate Osteosynthesis (MIPO) on Comminuted Tibial or Femoral Fractures', The Archives of Bone and Joint Surgery , 5(5), pp. 290-295. (ac.ir)
  • This study has been designed to assess the outcomes of this treatment for tibial and femoral comminuted fractures. (ac.ir)
  • 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)
  • Skull Fracture
  • 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)
  • While an uncomplicated skull fracture can occur without associated physical or neurological damage and is in itself usually not clinically significant, a fracture in healthy bone indicates that a substantial amount of force has been applied and increases the possibility of associated injury. (wikipedia.org)
  • In young children, although rare, the possibility exists of developing a growing skull fracture especially if the fracture occurs in the parietal bone. (wikipedia.org)
  • occur
  • After removal of plates, fractures may occur through the screw holes. (wikipedia.org)
  • For fractures that occur in the non-tooth bearing area (condyle, ramus, and sometimes the angle) an open bite is an important clinical feature since little else, other than swelling, may be apparent. (wikipedia.org)
  • Colles fractures occur in all age groups, although certain patterns follow an age distribution. (wikipedia.org)
  • This area of the cranial floor is weakened further by the presence of multiple foramina as a result this section is at higher risk for basilar skull fractures to occur. (wikipedia.org)
  • Compound depressed skull fractures occur when there is a laceration over the fracture, putting the internal cranial cavity in contact with the outside environment, increasing the risk of contamination and infection. (wikipedia.org)
  • Injuries
  • Fractures commonly happen because of car accidents, falls, or sports injuries. (icdlist.com)
  • The sliding screw plate (dynamic compression screw, dynamic hip screw) may be used to treat intertrochanteric fractures as well as other injuries. (wikipedia.org)
  • 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)
  • This fracture occurs in patients who have fallen from a height. (wikipedia.org)
  • collarbone
  • Once more, he was beset by bad luck and suffered a comminuted fracture of his collarbone in a pre-season match for Gloucester Rugby, which greatly reduced his chances of playing in the autumn tests. (wikipedia.org)
  • comminution
  • There are several classifications that describe different forms of olecranon fractures, yet none of them have gained widespread acceptance: Based on the stability, the displacement and the comminution of the fracture. (wikipedia.org)
  • A true lateral x-ray is essential to determine the fracture pattern, degree of displacement, comminution, and the degree of articular involvement. (wikipedia.org)
  • patients
  • Prospective cohort of 66 consecutive patients with mean age of 68 (range 60-81) years and AO type C fractures treated with volar locking plate. (springer.com)
  • For example: extensive comminutions, elderly patients with osteoporotic bone, and small or non-union fractures. (wikipedia.org)
  • cranial
  • Sometimes also followed by cramping Damage to adjacent structures such as nerves or vessels, spinal cord, and nerve roots (for spine fractures), or cranial contents (for skull fractures) may cause other specific signs and symptoms. (wikipedia.org)
  • 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)
  • commonly
  • 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)
  • Symptoms
  • Other symptoms may include loose teeth (teeth on either side of the fracture will feel loose because the fracture is mobile), numbness (because the inferior alveolar nerve runs along the jaw and can be compressed by a fracture) and trismus (difficulty opening the mouth). (wikipedia.org)
  • Bilateral condylar fractures may cause the above signs and symptoms, but on both sides. (wikipedia.org)
  • Surgical
  • The surgical team successfully implanted a Synthes stainless steel Locking Compression Plate (LCP) and 27 screws into the colt's injured leg to span the comminuted fracture and joints. (wikipedia.org)
  • Depressed fractures are usually comminuted, with broken portions of bone displaced inward-and may require surgical intervention to repair underlying tissue damage. (wikipedia.org)
