*  Operative treatment of displaced intra-articular fractures of Calcaneum: Is it worthwhile?
Displaced intra-articular calcaneal fractures remain a complex clinical entity to treat. Review of literature reveals different methods and recommendations for treatment of these fractures ranging from non-operative treatment with POP to K-wire fixation after reduction through small medial incision and ORIF through extensile lateral approach with plates. In closed management, it is difficult to obtain accurate reduction and to maintain reduction, whereas in open reduction, soft tissue stripping impairs blood supply which in turn delays union. Most of these injuries have been treated non-operatively in the past, with various methods described in literature.4 More recently, studies have favoured operative treatment for the management of displaced intra-articular fractures of calcaneus in selected patients.4 Findings included significantly better outcome scores in operated patients, especially ...
*  Controversies in the treatment of tibial plateau fractures
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 ...
*  UI receives $7.5 million to study post-traumatic osteoarthritis
Oct. 22, 2007. UI receives $7.5 million to study post-traumatic osteoarthritis. The University of Iowa has received a five-year, $7.5 million grant from the National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases (NIAMS) to establish a Center of Research Translation (CORT) for post-traumatic osteoarthritis, which is the joint degeneration, pain and stiffness that develops after joint injury.. Although joint injuries -- including dislocations, ligament injuries and joint fractures -- are known to cause post-traumatic osteoarthritis (PTOA), the biological and mechanical processes that underlie development and progression of osteoarthritis following injury are not well understood.. This lack of understanding has seriously hampered progress toward preventing PTOA, according to Joseph Buckwalter, M.D., the Dr. Arthur A. Steindler Chair in Orthopaedic Surgery and professor and head of orthopaedics and rehabilitation at the UI Roy J. and Lucille A. Carver College of Medicine. ...

*  Bohler's angle's role in assessing the injury severity and functional outcome of internal fixation for displaced intra...
Based upon the comprehensive statistic analysis of the data obtained from 274 patients, we found that the preoperative Böhler's angle, difference value of Böhler's angle between bilateral calcaneus, and change in Böhler's angle by ratio each has a significant positive correlation with Sanders classification, while the three postoperative measurements each also has a significant positive correlation with American Orthopaedic Foot & Ankle Society hindfoot score. To some extent, the preoperative Böhler's angle can indicate the injury severity of displaced intra-articular calcaneal fractures, while the postoperative angle can provide prognostic information with regard to the functional outcomes.. Various radiographic parameters have been used to describe calcaneal fractures. Böhler's angle is an accepted method of quantifying fracture displacement and has a prognostic value in predicting morbidity associated with calcaneal ...
*  CT with multiplanar reconstruction gives new perspective on complex ankle fractures
All 51 cases showed bone separation along the front part of the growth plate of the tibia. There were 33 "classic" two-fragment fractures as seen in medical textbooks, but the "classic" three fragment fracture (which involves a separation at Kump s bump) "was not seen in this series," said Dr. Brown, lead author of the study. Three fragment fractures were seen, but they involved different fracture patterns than what has been previously described as most common, said Dr. Brown. In fact, the study found that fully half of the triplane fracture patterns described in the literature - some of which have been described as quite common - likely occur only very rarely or never at all. This is explained by the characteristic pattern of closure of the growth plate. In addition, "the medial malleolar variety of triplane fracture previously considered rare, was very common," he said. "In one-fourth of the patients in our cohort, fractures involved the medial malleolus, ...
*  Fat pad sign - Wikipedia
On elbow radiography (projectional or CT), the fat pad sign, also known as the sail sign, suggests a fracture of one or more bones at the elbow, possibly an occult fracture that is not directly visible. Its name derives from the fact that it has the shape of a spinnaker (sail). It is caused by displacement of the fat pad around the elbow joint. Both anterior and posterior fat pad signs exist, and both can be found on the same X-ray. In children, a posterior fat pad sign suggests a condylar fracture of the humerus. In adults it suggests a radial head fracture. The fat pad sign only occurs after an intra-articular fracture. The fat pad sign is invaluable in assessing for the presence of an intra-articular fracture of the elbow. An anterior fat pad is often normal. However a posterior fat pad seen on a lateral x-ray of the elbow is always abnormal. The patient will be unable to flex their elbow and requires orthopaedic input. The posterior fat ...

*  GMS | 54. Jahrestagung der Norddeutschen Orthopädenvereinigung e. V. | Instability of the upper ankle joint following total...
The posttraumatic osteoarthritis of the upper ankle joint is increasingly treated by a total joint replacement. The patient we are reporting about presented an additional complex injury of the fibulotalar ligaments. In primary surgery by total ankle replacement this was not solved sufficiently. Consecutively a fibulotalar instability with subluxation of the mobile polyaethylen inlay was the result. As a salvage procedure during revision a plastic reconstruction by the Castaing procedure has been carried out. The clinical result six months post-operatively shows a very good mobility with fibulotalar stability. Total joint replacement of the upper ankle joint with a comminuted fibulotar ligament complex is possible but plastic reconstruction shoul be obtained initally. ...

*  Plus it
The treatment of calcaneal fractures continues to be a controversial issue in both trauma, and foot and ankle, surgical fields. The controversy stretches from initial indications through to the operative technique and post-operative care. Most, however, would agree that wound breakdown and infection are among the most devastating of complications following calcaneal fracture fixation surgery, and that patients with even the most severe injuries do poorest with surgery if complications arise. In an attempt to minimise these risks, many trauma surgeons now utilise limited incision approaches and arthroscopic-assisted methods to fix certain subtypes of calcaneal fractures. A pair of interesting papers shed some more light on this technique. In a retrospective case series of 39 displaced calcaneal fractures, a group from Winston-Salem, North Carolina (USA) reported their experience of a consecutive retrospective series of patients treated using a limited sinus ...

*  Post-traumatic Osteoarthritis
While osteoarthritis occurs in our joints naturally over time, development is rapidly progressed following a traumatic injury. Traditional methods have modeled trauma by surgically transecting the ACL. However this does not accurately replicate all the damage seen in clinical situations. Current research is being performed to characterize the first closed joint traumatic impact model as well as a modified transection model. These new models will allow acute as well as occult damage to the knee to be investigated, and will lead to better clinical treatment and out-patient care.. ...

First, I couldn't help but laugh last night when Bennett started throwing a full on tantrum because I told him we couldn't do his Chest Therapy Vest Treatment until later this evening. Bennett, fully aware the only time he gets to watch TV is during his treatment, came to me and asked if he could do his Vest treatment. He started pulling out the tubes so I knew what he wanted. I wasn't quite ready to give his treatments my attention since I was cooking so I told him we could do it later. He immediately hit the floor and began to wail. Oh, that face! Distraught over not being able to do his treatment! How can a mother resist when a child wants to do his treatments?? (For the record, I gave in.) That's our Bennett: wanting to comply even when it means getting treatments ...
