Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
A general term covering bibliographical and bibliothecal classifications. It mostly refers to library CLASSIFICATION for arrangement of books and documents on the shelves. (Harrod's Librarians' Glossary, 7th ed, p85)
Seedless nonflowering plants of the class Filicinae. They reproduce by spores that appear as dots on the underside of feathery fronds. In earlier classifications the Pteridophyta included the club mosses, horsetails, ferns, and various fossil groups. In more recent classifications, pteridophytes and spermatophytes (seed-bearing plants) are in the division, or phylum, Tracheophyta.
The constricted portion of the thigh bone between the femur head and the trochanters.
A nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory agent with potent analgesic and antiarthritic properties. It has been shown to be effective in the treatment of OSTEOARTHRITIS; RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS; ankylosing SPONDYLITIS; and in the alleviation of postoperative pain (PAIN, POSTOPERATIVE).
Fractures around joint replacement prosthetics or implants. They can occur intraoperatively or postoperatively.
Periprosthetic fracture following total knee arthroplasty is a potentially serious complication. This injury can involve the distal femur, proximal tibia or the patella. This review article analyzes t...
BACKGROUND: Treatment of periprosthetic femur fractures is challenging, and high failure and complication rates have been reported in many series. The optimal techniques and implants for the managemen...
We describe a case of successful revision total hip arthroplasty for a Vancouver type B3 periprosthetic femoral fracture with extensive bone stock deficiency and osteoporotic diaphyseal bone. The femu...
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the stiffness of 3 different constructs for the fixation of comminuted Vancouver B1 periprosthetic femoral shaft fractures: a single lateral locking plate, a...
Periprosthetic fracture of the proximal femur involving the lesser trochanter (the Vancouver type A(LT)) is an uncommon occurrence. As it is basically an avulsion fracture of the attachment of the ili...
Hypothesis: Inflatable intra medullary femoral nailing is superior to DHS in terms of blood loss, operative complications and postoperative rehabilitation in the management of pertrochante...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether there are any differences in skeletal or cutaneous traction for the treatment of femur fractures.
This project is designed to determine whether or not the trochanteric insertion portal will show any difference when compared with the piriformis fossa portal in terms of pain and strength...
This study is a comparison of postoperative pain in children with cerebral palsy after surgery on the hip or femur. One group is treated with p.o. (by mouth) or intravenous (i.v.) analgesi...
The purpose of this study is to compare the abductor muscle strength measured with a dynamometer in patients with reverse oblique inter- or subtrochanteric fractures treated either with a...
