To evaluate the relationship between syndesmosis reduction and outcome.
This article was published in the following journal.
Name: Journal of orthopaedic trauma
Ankle injuries are a common traumatic injury. Rupture to the syndesmosis may occur as a result of these injuries. Strategies for the treatment of both acute and chronic syndesmotic repair are reviewed...
To identify the incidence and fracture characteristics associated with syndesmotic injury in tibial plafond fractures and report the incidence of posttraumatic osteoarthrosis (PTOA).
This systematic review and meta-analysis was performed to investigate the outcomes of syndesmotic screw fixation versus suture button fixation in the treatment of distal tibiofibular syndesmosis injur...
Ankle syndesmotic injuries present a significant challenge for athletes due to prolonged disability and recovery periods. The optimal management of these injuries and rates of return to sport in athle...
BACKGROUND Ankle sprains with distal tibiofibular syndesmosis injuries (DTSIs) require anatomic reduction and fixation to restore the normal biomechanics of the ankle joint. In the last decade, dynami...
In AO Weber type C fractures, there is a combination of a proximal fibular fracture, a medial fracture or ruptured deltoid ligament, and a syndesmotic injury. Anatomical repair and reducti...
Ankle fracture is frequent and its number is increasing. In Canada, surgical treatment of these lesions is advised and the options currently used all have in common a rigid fixation of the...
This study evaluates fracture healing, anatomic reduction and return to functioning in patients with unstable Weber C type fractures of the ankle. Best outcomes are obtained when a good al...
The objective of this trial is to demonstrate that the functional outcome of 'removal on demand' of the syndesmotic screw is non-inferior compared to routine removal of the syndesmotic scr...
Treatment of syndesmotic injury with Weber C fracture. A randomized study comparing ZipTight suture endobutton and one tricortical 3,5 mm syndesmotic screw.
Acute and chronic (see also BRAIN INJURIES, CHRONIC) injuries to the brain, including the cerebral hemispheres, CEREBELLUM, and BRAIN STEM. Clinical manifestations depend on the nature of injury. Diffuse trauma to the brain is frequently associated with DIFFUSE AXONAL INJURY or COMA, POST-TRAUMATIC. Localized injuries may be associated with NEUROBEHAVIORAL MANIFESTATIONS; HEMIPARESIS, or other focal neurologic deficits.
Injuries to the optic nerve induced by a trauma to the face or head. These may occur with closed or penetrating injuries. Relatively minor compression of the superior aspect of orbit may also result in trauma to the optic nerve. Clinical manifestations may include visual loss, PAPILLEDEMA, and an afferent pupillary defect.
A heterogeneous group of drugs used to produce muscle relaxation, excepting the neuromuscular blocking agents. They have their primary clinical and therapeutic uses in the treatment of muscle spasm and immobility associated with strains, sprains, and injuries of the back and, to a lesser degree, injuries to the neck. They have been used also for the treatment of a variety of clinical conditions that have in common only the presence of skeletal muscle hyperactivity, for example, the muscle spasms that can occur in MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS. (From Smith and Reynard, Textbook of Pharmacology, 1991, p358)
Injuries to blood vessels caused by laceration, contusion, puncture, or crush and other types of injuries. Symptoms vary by site and mode of injuries and may include bleeding, bruising, swelling, pain, and numbness. It does not include injuries secondary to pathologic function or diseases such as ATHEROSCLEROSIS.
The development of systems to prevent accidents, injuries, and other adverse occurrences in an institutional setting. The concept includes prevention or reduction of adverse events or incidents involving employees, patients, or facilities. Examples include plans to reduce injuries from falls or plans for fire safety to promote a safe institutional environment.
