To evaluate the computational biomechanical analysis of intra-articular calcaneal fractures with different fixation status of the sustentaculum plate screw, when the finite element modeling of calcaneal fractures were fixed by the lateral locking plate.
This article was published in the following journal.
Name: Orthopaedic surgery
To characterize the presentation and outcomes of calcaneal avulsion fractures.
There has been much controversy over the optimal operative treatment of intra-articular calcaneal fractures. Open reduction and internal fixation is associated with a high incidence of postoperative s...
Refractory femoral neck fractures cannot be anatomically reduced by closed traction reduction which may affect fracture healing. We evaluated the biomechanical effects of positive, negative, and anato...
With the advent of 3D volume rendered CT scans, more information is potentially available to aid the surgeon in complex calcaneal fractures. The primary aim was to determine if there is a difference i...
To assess the costs, health gains, and cost-effectiveness of operative versus non-operative treatment of calcaneal fractures over a 5-year time horizon from both US societal and payer perspectives.
To include patient after traumatic (calcaneal) fractures for this study. They can be included to analyze gait with the OFM foot model, a non invasis model. Patient will be invited to the m...
The study was a parallel-group, randomized controlled trial with concealed allocation, blinding of investigators and assessors and intention-to-treat analysis. It examined the effect of cu...
The incidence of osteoporosis has been increasing, as have fractures resulting from falls.
The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of specially produced insoles on biomechanical and gait parameters in children with Sever's disease.
Introduction: Kinetic, kinematic and electromyographic activity of the lower limb have been shown to be influenced by various footwear-generated biomechanical manipulations (e.g. soles. In...
Inflammation of the thick tissue on the bottom of the foot (plantar fascia) causing HEEL pain. The plantar fascia (also called plantar aponeurosis) are bands of fibrous tissue extending from the calcaneal tuberosity to the TOES. The etiology of plantar fasciitis remains controversial but is likely to involve a biomechanical imbalance. Though often presenting along with HEEL SPUR, they do not appear to be causally related.
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.
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).
Crumbling or smashing of cancellous BONE by forces acting parallel to the long axis of bone. It is applied particularly to vertebral body fractures (SPINAL FRACTURES). (Blauvelt and Nelson, A Manual of Orthopedic Terminology, 1994, p4)
