Computed tomography (CT) is more accurate than plain pelvic radiography (PXR) for evaluating acetabular fracture reduction. As yet unknown is whether CT-based assessment is more predictive for clinica...
We present a case of comminuted sternal fracture with posterior displacement, which was successfully repaired by 'sandwich' fixation using 2 bioresorbable plates that were placed anterior to and poste...
We aimed to investigate the incidence of proximal fibula fractures in patients with tibial plateau fractures and to identify risk factors for such combined injuries. From January 2011 to December 2015...

A prospective study included 91 patients, who had single level thoracolumbar fracture with Cobb's angle ≤ 25⁰, underwent posterior fixation. Forty four patients underwent short segment ...
Treatment of acetabular fractures needs a perfect diagnosis to anticipate surgical difficulties. E. Letournel described a rare atypical both-column fracture which " introduces enormous sur...
Assessement,evaluation of postoperativ reduction of posterior wall acetabular fractures in Assiut University Hospital
To validate the safety and effectiveness of minimally invasive posterior percutaneous pedicle screw fixation in acute thoracolumbar vertebral fractures with simple anterior spinal column i...
Management of acetabular (hip) fractures in the geriatric population can be very challenging because of osteoporosis, comminution and an increased risk for loss of reduction. Post-operati...
Internal devices used in osteosynthesis to hold the position of the fracture in proper alignment. By applying the principles of biomedical engineering, the surgeon uses metal plates, nails, rods, etc., for the correction of skeletal defects.
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 joining of objects by means of a cement (e.g., in fracture fixation, such as in hip arthroplasty for joining of the acetabular component to the femoral component). In dentistry, it is used for the process of attaching parts of a tooth or restorative material to a natural tooth or for the attaching of orthodontic bands to teeth by means of an adhesive.
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.
Osteoporosis is a disease in which the bones become extremely porous, are subject to fracture, and heal slowly, occurring especially in women following menopause and often leading to curvature of the spine from vertebral collapse. Follow and track&n...
