Summary of "Hinge Fractures Are Underestimated on Plain Radiographs After Open Wedge Proximal Tibial Osteotomy: Evaluation by Computed Tomography."

Lateral hinge fracture (LHF) after medial open wedge high tibial osteotomy (MOWHTO) may not be recognized on perioperative plain radiographs. Such cases may be identified at follow-up and misdiagnosed as delayed LHF.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Fractures in which there is an external wound communicating with the break of the bone.

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.

A skull fracture characterized by inward depression of a fragment or section of cranial bone, often compressing the underlying dura mater and brain. Depressed cranial fractures which feature open skin wounds that communicate with skull fragments are referred to as compound depressed skull fractures.

Fractures of the FEMUR HEAD; the FEMUR NECK; (FEMORAL NECK FRACTURES); the trochanters; or the inter- or subtrochanteric region. Excludes fractures of the acetabulum and fractures of the femoral shaft below the subtrochanteric region (FEMORAL FRACTURES).

Fractures of the skull which may result from penetrating or nonpenetrating head injuries or rarely BONE DISEASES (see also FRACTURES, SPONTANEOUS). Skull fractures may be classified by location (e.g., SKULL FRACTURE, BASILAR), radiographic appearance (e.g., linear), or based upon cranial integrity (e.g., SKULL FRACTURE, DEPRESSED).
