The optimal treatment of complex proximal humeral fractures in adults remains controversial. We evaluated the risk of complications and the long-term outcomes in patients with a severely displaced fracture or a fracture-dislocation of the proximal part of the humerus treated with open reduction and plate fixation (ORIF).

Anatomic reduction and stabile fixation for immediate mobilisation and restoration of unrestricted function.
Direct fixation of posterior malleolar fractures has been shown to lead to higher accuracy of fracture reduction compared to an indirect anterior to posterior fixation but lacks long-term clinical res...
The aim of this study was to evaluate risk factors for symptomatic hardware and removal of hardware (ROH) after olecranon open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF) and to assess differences between ...
There is no consensus about the best treatment for patients with displaced complete articular distal radius fractures (AO type C fractures). Despite this lack of consensus and the lack of ...
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the functional outcome in patients with a midshaft clavicle fracture treated with to different techniques. the first one was placing a 3.5mm recon...
The surgical treatment of wrist fractures (distal radius bone) has been changed by the introduction of a new plate design, the locking plate. This results in improved fixation and stabili...

Distal radius fractures are treated surgically if severely displaced. This study aims to investigate the outcome after surgery. The investigators will randomize patients to either external...
Bone lengthening by gradual mechanical distraction. An external fixation device produces the distraction across the bone plate. The technique was originally applied to long bones but in recent years the method has been adapted for use with mandibular implants in maxillofacial surgery.

Persons who have experienced prolonged survival of HIV infection. This includes the full spectrum of untreated, HIV-infected long-term asymptomatics to those with AIDS who have survived due to successful treatment.
A persistent increase in synaptic efficacy, usually induced by appropriate activation of the same synapses. The phenomenological properties of long-term potentiation suggest that it may be a cellular mechanism of learning and memory.
The head of a long bone that is separated from the shaft by the epiphyseal plate until bone growth stops. At that time, the plate disappears and the head and shaft are united.
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...
