Freehand C2 Laminar Screw Placement: Technical Note and Operative Video.

The placement of C2 laminar screws is a safe and useful method of axis fixation. The freehand method of screw placement was originally described by Wright et al., and requires detailed knowledge of th...

Biomechanical comparison of minimally invasive treatment options for Type C unstable fractures of the pelvic ring.

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...

Non-locking screw insertion: No benefit seen if tightness exceeds 80% of the maximum torque.

Millions of non-locking screws are manually tightened during surgery each year, but their insertion frequently results in overtightening and damage to the surrounding bone. We postulated that by calcu...

Use of simultaneous traction over a halo ring to achieve reduction of a type 2 odontoid fracture for anterior odontoid screw fixation.

Odontoid fractures are common. They represent 20% of all cervical trauma. There is a trend towards surgical stabilization. Fracture fixation with 1 or 2 anterior screws is standard operative treatment...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Surgical insertion of cylindric hydraulic devices for the treatment of organic ERECTILE DYSFUNCTION.

A treatment method in which patients are under direct observation when they take their medication or receive their treatment. This method is designed to reduce the risk of treatment interruption and to ensure patient compliance.

CONNECTIVE TISSUE of the anterior compartment of the THIGH that has its origins on the anterior aspect of the iliac crest and anterior superior iliac spine, and its insertion point on the iliotibial tract. It plays a role in medial rotation of the THIGH, steadying the trunk, and in KNEE extension.

Surgical procedure by which a tendon is incised at its insertion and placed at an anatomical site distant from the original insertion. The tendon remains attached at the point of origin and takes over the function of a muscle inactivated by trauma or disease.

A method of studying a drug or procedure in which both the subjects and investigators are kept unaware of who is actually getting which specific treatment.
