Avulsion fracture of the lesser trochanter.
Summary of "Avulsion fracture of the lesser trochanter."
An avulsion fracture of the lesser trochanter is a very rare injury often misdiagnosed as a muscle lesion or hip distortion. This report concerns the avulsion fracture of the lesser trochanter of a 13-year-old boy, suffered on a runway preparing for a long jump. Conservative treatment without weight-bearing was indicated for 6 weeks. Twelve weeks after the injury the patient resumed his normal sport activities.

The aims of this study were to assess the incidence of reverse Segond fracture, to examine the associated ligamentous injuries, and to examine how often reverse Segond fracture coexists with a knee di...
This case report demonstrates the importance of the CISS sequence, a fast imaging technique in MRI, in case of suspected nerve root avulsion. We present a case of traumatic pseudomeningoceles at T1-T2...
We developed 'lesser trochanter index' (LTI) and estimated its accuracy in predicting the underestimation of offset in the anteroposterior (AP) pelvic radiographs. We reconstructed 320 simulated radio...
Isolated traumatic subscapularis tendon tears are uncommon at any age. In adolescent patients, this type of injury is even more infrequent and usually presents as a bony avulsion of the lesser tuberos...
Osteonecrosis of the hip accounts for about 10% of all total hip arthroplasty cases and presents a significant challenge for those patients with and without femoral head collapse. Subtrochanteric femu...

Implantable fracture fixation devices attached to bone fragments with screws to bridge the fracture gap and shield the fracture site from stress as bone heals. (UMDNS, 1999)
Fracture in the proximal half of the shaft of the ulna, with dislocation of the head of the radius.
The use of metallic devices inserted into or through bone to hold a fracture in a set position and alignment while it heals.
Fracture of the lower end of the radius in which the lower fragment is displaced posteriorly.
The use of internal devices (metal plates, nails, rods, etc.) to hold the position of a fracture in proper alignment.
