The definite treatment of pelvic C fractures presents a widely discussed issue and undergoes continuous evolution. While the stabilization of the posterior ring has been studied extensively, the fixat...
Subcutaneous fixation of the anterior pelvic ring is an emerging surgical technique for trauma patients. The aim of this study was to biomechanically evaluate 2 internal fixation devices for stabilizi...
Pelvic ring fractures represent a challenge for orthopaedic surgeon. Their management depends on patient's condition, pattern of fracture and associated injuries. Optimal timing for synthesis is not y...
To investigate the risk of postoperative surgical site infections after plate fixation of the anterior pelvic ring subsequent to preperitoneal pelvic packing.
In this case report, we present a novel stabilization technique of the pubic symphysis using an internal spinal fixator in a 78-year-old morbidly obese woman having a pelvic disruption type B1.1 (AO c...
The purpose of this research is to compare patient outcomes of two treatment methods that are currently used as standard of care to treat anterior pelvic ring injuries that require stabili...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate patients with tibial plateau fractures. The goal is to compare the differences between anteriorly placed (front of leg) femoral external fixator pi...
Pelvic ring fractures in the elderly are associated with high morbidity during standard conservative treatment due to immobility. Furthermore the risk of long term dependence even after th...
Pelvic ring fractures are common and often the result of high energy trauma but also sometimes of lower energy trauma in older patients. A good classification and description of the fractu...
Pelvic ring fractures in the geriatric population are a rising problem for surgeons in industrialized countries. Many of these low-energy fractures are treated nonoperatively; however, pai...
The tunnel in the lower anterior ABDOMINAL WALL through which the SPERMATIC CORD, in the male; ROUND LIGAMENT, in the female; nerves; and vessels pass. Its internal end is at the deep inguinal ring and its external end is at the superficial inguinal ring.
Soft tissue formed mainly by the pelvic diaphragm, which is composed of the two levator ani and two coccygeus muscles. The pelvic diaphragm lies just below the pelvic aperture (outlet) and separates the pelvic cavity from the PERINEUM. It extends between the PUBIC BONE anteriorly and the COCCYX posteriorly.
Artery formed by the bifurcation of the internal carotid artery (CAROTID ARTERY, INTERNAL). Branches of the anterior cerebral artery supply the CAUDATE NUCLEUS; INTERNAL CAPSULE; PUTAMEN; SEPTAL NUCLEI; GYRUS CINGULI; and surfaces of the FRONTAL LOBE and PARIETAL LOBE.
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 bone fixation technique using an external fixator (FIXATORS, EXTERNAL) for lengthening limbs, correcting pseudarthroses and other deformities, and assisting the healing of otherwise hopeless traumatic or pathological fractures and infections, such as chronic osteomyelitis. The method was devised by the Russian orthopedic surgeon Gavriil Abramovich Ilizarov (1921-1992). (From Bull Hosp Jt Dis 1992 Summer;52(1):1)
