TRial to Evaluate UltraSound in the Treatment of Tibial Fractures
The purpose of this study is to determine the effect of low-intensity, pulsed ultrasound on tibial fractures treated with intramedullary nailing.
A randomized, placebo-treatment controlled, clinical trial to evaluate the safety and efficacy of low-intensity, pulsed ultrasound, applied to tibial fractures treated with intramedullary nailing.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Femoral Neck Fractures
Fractures of the short, constricted portion of the thigh bone between the femur head and the trochanters. It excludes intertrochanteric fractures which are HIP FRACTURES.
Crumbling or smashing of cancellous BONE by forces acting parallel to the long axis of bone. It is applied particularly to vertebral body fractures (SPINAL FRACTURES). (Blauvelt and Nelson, A Manual of Orthopedic Terminology, 1994, p4)
Fractures due to the strain caused by repetitive exercise. They are thought to arise from a combination of MUSCLE FATIGUE and bone failure, and occur in situations where BONE REMODELING predominates over repair. The most common sites of stress fractures are the METATARSUS; FIBULA; TIBIA; and FEMORAL NECK.
The bony deposit formed between and around the broken ends of BONE FRACTURES during normal healing.
Bone Density Conservation Agents
Agents that inhibit BONE RESORPTION and/or favor BONE MINERALIZATION and BONE REGENERATION. They are used to heal BONE FRACTURES and to treat METABOLIC BONE DISEASES.
The purpose of this study is to determine whether using active low intensity pulsed ultrasound as adjunct therapy following single level posterior instrumented lumbar surgery increases the...
Evaluate the INFUSE/MASTERGRAFT™ Delayed Healing Device as an alternative/replacement to autograft in the treatment of tibial delayed healing.
Case series of tibial plateau fractures using Norian Drillable.
Fractures of the tibial shaft (diaphysis) are some of the most common long bone fractures. They most frequently occur in males less than 40 years of age. Despite advancements in the surgic...
This study is to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of the OP device for the treatment of nonunion bone fractures and to compare the healing rates of the OP Device to that of autograft.
BACKGROUND: Segmental tibial fractures are considered to be a special injury type associated with high complication rates. However, it is unclear whether healing of these fractures truly differs from...
Background and purpose Autonomic neuropeptide Y (NPY) is involved in local bone remodeling via the central nervous system. However, the role of peripheral neuronal NPY in fracture healing is not known...
BACKGROUND: Nonunion of long bones in lower limbs is a common complication of orthopedic trauma that can be extremely debilitating. This retrospective study describes our experience using expandable i...
In contrast to younger patients, tibial head fractures of the elderly usually result from minor trauma. In these patients, fractures of the tibial plateau are frequently seen and classified according...
PURPOSE: Experimental studies of the effects of various mechanical conditions and stimuli on bone healing have disclosed an improvement potential in bone fracture mineralization and biomechanical prop...
