Proximal humeral fractures (PHFs) are the third most commonly occurring fractures in elderly patients. Most of these fractures can be treated with conservative methods, but the optimal surgical treatment strategy for unstable fractures in elderly patients remains controversial. This study aimed to compare the radiological and clinical outcomes between locking compression plate (LCP) fixation and LCP fixation with fibular allograft implantation for the treatment of comminuted PHFs.

Surgical treatment of fibula fractures associated with unstable ankle injuries traditionally involves an extensile exposure, direct reduction of the fracture, and fixation with a plate and screw const...
This study aimed to (1) quantitatively analyze the fibular footprints of the lateral collateral ligament (LCL) and popliteofibular ligament (PFL) and (2) evaluate whether a fibular tunnel can restore ...
Long-Term Effect of Ultrathin-Strut Versus Thin-Strut Drug-Eluting Stents in Patients With Small Vessel Coronary Artery Disease Undergoing Percutaneous Coronary Intervention: A Subgroup Analysis of the BIOSCIENCE Randomized Trial.
Randomized trials evaluating the Orsiro biodegradable polymer sirolimus-eluting stent (BP-SES; 60 and 80 μm strut thickness for stent diameters ≤3 and >3 mm, respectively) did not stratify accordin...
The recent BIOFLOW V trial (ClinicalTrials.gov: NCT02389946) showed that revascularization with an ultrathin strut, bioresorbable polymer sirolimus-eluting stent (BP SES) was associated with lower rat...
The deep fibular sensory nerve can be recorded to evaluate for peripheral nerve injury, however it can be challenging in some individuals. Anatomic variation could account for some of this difficulty....
Randomised Controlled Trial to Compare the Efficacy of Fibular Nail Fixation vs Plate Fixation in Ankle Fracture Management
The role of strut in rhinoplasty has been debated for many years and many research has been made over this problem but there is no significant data for descision of surgeon, so this study...
This study establishes reference material of selected lower extremity nerves at pre-defined sites with high-resolution ultrasound. Furthermore in this study, high-resolution ultrasound of ...
This is a randomized trial comparing conservative with surgical treatment (with open reduction and locking plate fixation) for proximal humeral fractures in patients aged more than 60 year...
The incidence of distal radius fracture (DRF) increases with age, and thus, because of improving life expectancies, these fractures are set to become more common. Fractures of the distal r...
The lateral of the two terminal branches of the sciatic nerve. The peroneal (or fibular) nerve provides motor and sensory innervation to parts of the leg and foot.
Evaluation procedures that focus on both the outcome or status (OUTCOMES ASSESSMENT) of the patient at the end of an episode of care - presence of symptoms, level of activity, and mortality; and the process (ASSESSMENT, PROCESS) - what is done for the patient diagnostically and therapeutically.
Reduction of high-risk choices and adoption of low-risk quantity and frequency alternatives.
A pteridine derivative present in body fluids; elevated levels result from immune system activation, malignant disease, allograft rejection, and viral infections. (From Stedman, 26th ed) Neopterin also serves as a precursor in the biosynthesis of biopterin.
Reduction in caloric intake without reduction in adequate nutrition. In experimental animals, caloric restriction has been shown to extend lifespan and enhance other physiological variables.
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
