To describe a technique that uses a fixation screw with a steel wire ring which is implanted into the mandibular to facilitate the condylar fracture reduction. This technique has been used on 382 patients over the last 8 years from the Department of Oral and Cranio-Maxillofacial Science of Shanghai Ninth People's Hospital, School of Medicine, Shanghai Jiao Tong University, Shanghai, China. No complication has been encountered. Applying this approach, the displaced proximal condylar fragment can be found quickly, and then the fragment can be effectively prevented from being broken again in the reduction process.

Lateral condyle fractures are second only to supracondylar humeral fractures when it comes to pediatric elbow fractures. Whether minimally displaced or substantially displaced, these growth plate frac...
Mandibular condyle fractures are a common type of facial fracture in children. The authors aimed to examine the demographics, etiology, treatment, and outcomes of these fractures managed in a single p...
Avascular necrosis (AVN) of the distal humerus is a known complication of lateral condyle fractures yet the specific rate of occurrence is unknown. The purposes of this study are to analyze the incide...
Lateral condyle fractures of the humerus are the second most common fracture about the elbow in children. The injury typically occurs as a result of a varus- or valgus-applied force to the forearm wit...
The aim of this study was to describe the use of locking compression plates (LCP) in Y-T humeral condyle fractures and to evaluate their clinical outcome.
Fracture of lateral humeral condyle in children is not uncommon.The nonunion means no healing of the fracture after 3 months from the injury.Delayed union means no healing from 6 weels to ...
Multi-center Study on Surgical Treatment for the Minimal Displaced JakobⅡ Classification Humerus Lateral Condylar Fractures in Children.
The purpose of this study is to investigate the post-operative pain control in pediatric patients with closed lateral condyle fractures who undergo open reduction and percutaneous pinning....
In AO Weber type C fractures, there is a combination of a proximal fibular fracture, a medial fracture or ruptured deltoid ligament, and a syndesmotic injury. Anatomical repair and reducti...
This prospective study (including patients with an intertrochanteric or subtrochanteric fractures type 31A1, 31A2 and 31A3) is to assess the effect of an educational intervention for opera...
Tearing away of the CORTICAL BONE fragment at the location of a strong ligament or tendon attachment. The bone fragment detachment site often occurs near a soft site (e.g., GROWTH PLATE) at the base where LIGAMENTS; TENDONS; or JOINT CAPSULES attach. In younger patients it is most often caused by a sudden forceful pull on a tendon in the opposite direction of the bone movement. In the elderly it is associated with osteoporotic INSUFFICIENCY FRACTURES.
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 skull fracture characterized by inward depression of a fragment or section of cranial bone, often compressing the underlying dura mater and brain. Depressed cranial fractures which feature open skin wounds that communicate with skull fragments are referred to as compound depressed skull fractures.
Fractures of the FEMUR HEAD; the FEMUR NECK; (FEMORAL NECK FRACTURES); the trochanters; or the inter- or subtrochanteric region. Excludes fractures of the acetabulum and fractures of the femoral shaft below the subtrochanteric region (FEMORAL FRACTURES).
Fractures of the skull which may result from penetrating or nonpenetrating head injuries or rarely BONE DISEASES (see also FRACTURES, SPONTANEOUS). Skull fractures may be classified by location (e.g., SKULL FRACTURE, BASILAR), radiographic appearance (e.g., linear), or based upon cranial integrity (e.g., SKULL FRACTURE, DEPRESSED).
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...
