Summary of "Rate of avascular necrosis after fracture dislocations of the proximal humerus: Timing of surgery."

Avascular necrosis (AVN) of the humeral head is a severe complication after proximal humerus fracture dislocations, and leads to a poorer clinical outcome and subsequent revision surgeries. The aim of the current study was to analyze the influence of time to surgery on the AVN rate after locked plating of dislocation fractures of the proximal humerus.

Corrective osteotomy and in situ fusion for late-presenting nonunion of lateral condyle fractures of the humerus in adults.

Late presentation of lateral condylar fractures of the humerus is not an uncommon problem in children, and to lesser extent, in adults. The various surgical interventions for repairing the fracture, c...

Complications after surgical treatment of proximal humerus fractures in the elderly-an analysis of complication patterns and risk factors for reverse shoulder arthroplasty and angular-stable plating.

To date, there is a lack of consensus regarding surgical treatment recommendations for complex proximal humerus fracture (PHF) patterns, especially between joint preservation and joint replacement tec...

The Reverse Oblique Supracondylar Humerus Fracture: Description of a Novel Fracture Pattern.

Sagittal profile descriptions of supracondylar humerus fractures are limited. We describe a reverse oblique (RO) pattern in which the distal fragment has a prominent anterior spike that is displaced p...

Atypical Osteonecrosis of Humeral Head FollowingAnterior Shoulder Dislocation.

Osteonecrosis of the humeral head is not a very common entity. It is usually associated with comminuted proximal humerus fractures. We report a rare case of osteonecrosis of humeral head after anterio...

Prevention of Avascular Necrosis with Fractures of the Talar Neck.

Displaced talar neck fractures no longer constitute a surgical emergency; timing of definitive surgery has no bearing on the risk of osteonecrosis. Amount of initial fracture displacement is best pred...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Aseptic or avascular necrosis of the femoral head. The major types are idiopathic (primary), as a complication of fractures or dislocations, and LEGG-PERTHES DISEASE.

Fracture in the proximal half of the shaft of the ulna, with dislocation of the head of the radius.

A cartilage-capped benign tumor that often appears as a stalk on the surface of bone. It is probably a developmental malformation rather than a true neoplasm and is usually found in the metaphysis of the distal femur, proximal tibia, or proximal humerus. Osteochondroma is the most common of benign bone tumors.

Fractures of the proximal humerus, including the head, anatomic and surgical necks, and tuberosities.

The internal lateral ligament that travels from the medial aspect of the ELBOW uniting the distal aspect of the HUMERUS to the proximal aspect of the ULNA.
