*  Tibiotalocalcaneal arthrodesis with headless compression screws | Journal of Orthopaedic Surgery and Research | Full Text
There are many forms of fixation for tibiotalocalcaneal arthrodesis, including screws, plates, intramedullary nails and external fixators. The development of the second-generation headless compression screw is an innovation that allows surgeons to perform arthrodesis. In the present study, the outcomes of the patients who underwent tibiotalocalcaneal arthrodesis using headless compression screws are encouraging. As the previous reports about tibiotalocalcaneal arthrodesis with intramedullary nails confirmed, the AOFAS Ankle-Hindfoot Score was 63-71, the satisfaction rate was 78-92 % [18], VAS pain score was 1.98 on average and Roles and Maudsley patient satisfaction scores were 1.77 on average [15]. Our study results showed that after surgery, the AOFAS Ankle-Hindfoot Score was 68.5 on average, the satisfaction rate was 94.1 % and VAS pain score was 1.56 on average; Roles and Maudsley patient satisfaction scores at the last visit were 1.41 on average. Nearly all patients who underwent ...

The Winston Churchill Memorial Trust, established in 1965, funds Travelling Fellowships and both authors visited hospitals in Germany, Canada and the USA regarded as centres of excellence with expertise in the early care, reconstruction and rehabilitation of the combat casualties of our NATO Allies, as recipients of these Fellowships. This article presents some of the lessons learnt in the field of musculoskeletal trauma and rehabilitation from the Canadian and US military medical systems. In trauma, there were significant differences in wound debridement policy, use of external fixators for fractures, primary use of circular frames for open tibial fractures and a far more liberal use of bone morphogenetic protein in fracture treatment. Differences in soft tissue reconstruction policy regarding flaps for soft tissue cover over exposed bone, near-universal usage of topical negative pressure dressings and use of Allgöwer-Donati suture pattern to close all wounds were noted. Ertl amputation ...

*  Successful treatment of nonunion with an Ilizarov ring fixator after ankle fracture for Charcot arthropathy: a case report |...
Increasing numbers of patients are being diagnosed with diabetes, and they are living longer because of improvements in treatment [1-3]. Ankle fractures in patients with diabetes mellitus have long been recognized as a challenge to orthopedic surgeons. Nonunion and lengthy wound healing in high-risk patients with diabetes, particularly in those with peripheral arterial disease and renal failure, as in the present case, are often fraught with complications [1-3]. Whether diabetic ankle fractures are best treated noninvasively or surgically is controversial [2]. Some previous studies have shown that nondisplaced fractures in high-risk patients can be managed nonsurgically in a cast [5, 6]. Treatment entails casting with non-weight-bearing restriction until fracture healing is demonstrated.. McCormack et al. described 26 ankle fractures in patients with diabetes; 19 were treated surgically, and seven were immobilized in casts. The surgical group included one wound complication (5%), four infections ...

*  Talus Fractures
Any associated joint dislocation should undergo emergent reduction in either the emergency room or operating room followed by open reduction and internal fixation based on the quality of the surrounding soft tissues and the comfort level of the surgeon. A peritalar dislocation that is reduced in the emergency room should be placed in a splint. A peritalar dislocation reduced in the operating room can either be placed in a temporary external fixator or placed in a splint. Assuming no dislocation, the patient is placed in a splint until a definitive treatment plan is obtained. Operative treatment is dictated by displacement. Truly non displaced fractures can be treated in a cast after swelling subsides. In general, if there is any displacement, open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF) should be performed. Traditionally, with talar neck fractures, it was thought that emergent ORIF should be performed. However, more recent studies do not show a correlation with timing of ...

*  Patente US5000165 - Lumbar spine rod fixation system - Google Patentes
A lumbar spine fixation system which includes two spaced lumbar rods extending upwardly from the sacrum on each side of the lumbar spine. The upper ends of the lumbar rods are affixed to the spine by the use of pedicle screws. In the practice of the present invention, fixation of the lower ends of the rods is achieved by mounting an offset hook onto the lower end of each rod. The hook is configured to extend to the alar portion of the sacrum which is laterally placed from the sacral facet. The offset sacral hooks allow for the placement of the rods toward the midline and protect the laminar area of the spine which is frequently removed in a laminectomy. The sacral hooks can be further stabilized with a screw which goes from the sacral hook out laterally into the thick portion of the sacrum. This provides for further compression fixation of the sacral hook. A gear nut system is provided to facilitate the fixation of the screw holder and sacral hook.

*  Patent US20040092934 - Multi selective axis spinal fixation system - Google Patents
A spinal fixation system includes a plurality of anchor screw assemblies, e.g. including anchor screws and clamp assemblies defining rod passages therethrough. A rod is receivable in the rod passages between the anchor screw assemblies, and a spacer is securable on the rod. During use, a first anchor screw is screwed into a first vertebra, and a second anchor screw is screwed into a second vertebra adjacent the first vertebra, and clamp assemblies are mounted to each anchor screw. A rod is secured between the anchor screw assemblies, thereby fixing a relative spacing of the first and second vertebrae. A spacer is crimped onto the exposed portion of the rod between the anchor screw assemblies, the spacer extending between the anchor screw assemblies to prevent the anchor screw assemblies, and, consequently, the first and second vertebrae, from moving towards one another.

Treatment was multidisciplinary and included orthopaedics, neurosurgery and haematology/ oncology.. All patients received CHOP regimen chemotherapy (cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, vincristine and prednisolone) except for four (8.9%) patients who died of pneumonia after biopsy while awaiting histology results and referral to oncology. Nine patients (20%) did not complete the minimum of six cycles of chemotherapy because they became very debilitated and abandoned therapy and demised after 3 months. Twenty patients (44.5%) received a combination of chemotherapy and radiotherapy.. Most long bone pathological fractures were treated surgically in adults [plating of the humerus (n = 1, 16.6%) and intermedullary nailing of the femur (n = 2, 33.3%)] and immobilised in a plaster in children (n = 2, 33.3%). One femoral (16.6%) nail was later removed and an external fixator applied after development of deep infection post-operatively and the patient demised 2 months later due to septicaemia. Two patients ...

*  Utah Attorney General - Mark Shurtleff: August 2008
Ilizarov was born in 1921 in the Caucasian Mountains in the Soviet Republic. He was the oldest of eight children - born to illiterate parents. He did not attend school until he was 11 years old because he had no shoes. However, he later was able to attend medical school in Crimea. He treated a huge number of wounded Russian soldiers in WWII and was faced with the daunting challenge of managing nonunions (bones that don't heal) and osteomyelitis (infection in the bone) in the pre-antibiotic era. With the assistance of the local bicycle shop he worked out a way of immobilizing fractures using fine wires tensioned to a ring like the spokes of a wheel. This framework proved so stable that he was able to undertake very complex reconstructive procedures and treatment for nonunion. As stated by Dr. David M. Huebner, "The Ilizarov Technique is unique in all of orthopaedics in that it allows the surgeon to use the patient's biology to form new bone." ...

*  Finger Lengthening | Congenital Hand and Arm Differences
The idea is that we can place a fixator on a short bone and then slowly grow that bone. Typically less than 1mm a day. A family member turns a dial 3-4x/ day to gradually make the bone longer. We have to carefully watch the xrays to make sure the body is responding by growing bone. This process is painless and if the child is having pain, something is usually wrong. We grow the bone as long as possible to help function. The fixator is on during the lengthening process (may be months but depends on how much bone we grow) and then stays on a bit longer while the bone truly heals (after we stop turning the dial). More information is always available through our website at http://ortho.wustl.edu/content/Patient-Care/3220/SERVICES/Hand-Wrist/Congenital-Hand-Disorders.aspx ...
