Clinical Outcomes and Complications of the Surgical Implant Generation Network (SIGN) Intramedullary Nail: A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis.

This study is a systematic review and meta-analysis of the clinical outcomes and pooled complication rate of femoral, tibial, and humeral fracture fixation using SIGN nails. We aimed to compare the po...

Radiologic Evaluation of Lower Leg, Ankle, and Foot Fracture Fixation Hardware.

Radiologists should be familiar with basic principles of fracture fixation and the normal imaging appearances of implant constructs and their complications. The surgeon's selection of external fixatio...

Reoperations in intramedullary fixation of pertrochanteric hip fractures.

This study evaluated the frequency of reoperation within one year of initial intramedullary fixation for patients with pertrochanteric hip fracture and compared one-year healthcare resource utilizatio...

Intramedullary screw fixation for simple displaced olecranon fractures.

Olecranon fractures are common and typically require surgical fixation due to displacement generated by the pull of the triceps muscle. The most common techniques for repairing olecranon fractures are...

Current Fixation Options for Elbow, Forearm, Wrist, and Hand Fractures.

The universal goals of upper limb fracture management are to restore anatomic alignment, establish stable fracture fixation (while preserving blood supply), and allow for early mobilization of the elb...

NovaLign Intramedullary Fixation System (IFS) for the Treatment of Humeral Fractures

This post-market clinical study is being done to evaluate the use of the NovaLign™ Intramedullary Fixation System in the treatment of humeral fractures.

Autologous Bone Marrow Concentration for Femoral Shaft Fracture Union

This study aims to evaluate the effect of bone marrow concentration on union of femoral shaft fracture by comparing clinical and imaging outcomes between patients receiving Intramedullary ...

SPRINT - Randomized Trial of Tibial Fracture Fixation

The purpose of this study is to determine if there is a difference in the rate of healing of a tibia fracture treated with an intramedullary nail based on whether or not the bone was reame...

Short Versus Standard Intramedullary Nail for Trochanteric Hip Fractures

In England each year over 65,000 people fracture their hip. Most of these patients are elderly females with the fracture occurring after a simple trip or stumble. Approximately half of the...

Femoral Extramedullary Versus Intramedullary Alignment Systems in Total Knee Arthroplasty

A prospective study will be performed to compare the clinical outcome after total knee arthroplasty (TKA) using two different alignment systems: an extramedullary system versus an intramed...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Benign and malignant neoplasms which occur within the substance of the spinal cord (intramedullary neoplasms) or in the space between the dura and spinal cord (intradural extramedullary neoplasms). The majority of intramedullary spinal tumors are primary CNS neoplasms including ASTROCYTOMA; EPENDYMOMA; and LIPOMA. Intramedullary neoplasms are often associated with SYRINGOMYELIA. The most frequent histologic types of intradural-extramedullary tumors are MENINGIOMA and NEUROFIBROMA.

The use of nails that are inserted into bone cavities in order to keep fractured bones together.

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)

The use of metallic devices inserted into or through bone to hold a fracture in a set position and alignment while it heals.

The use of internal devices (metal plates, nails, rods, etc.) to hold the position of a fracture in proper alignment.
