Open tibial fractures are common injuries in low and middle-income countries, but there is no consensus regarding treatment with intramedullary nailing versus external fixation. The purpose of the present study was to compare the outcomes of initial treatment with intramedullary nailing or external fixation in adults with open tibial fractures.
Tibial shaft fractures in children can often be successfully managed with a well-molded cast that controls length, alignment, and rotation of the fracture. Acceptable alignment of tibial shaft fractures in children is less than 10° of coronal and sagittal angulation, 50% translation, and 10 mm of shortening. Fractures of the tibial shaft without an associated fibular shaft fracture may fall into varus malalignment despite initial adequate reduction and should be followed closely during the first 3 weeks af...
There is no consensus regarding the surgical treatment of humeral shaft fracture. The present meta-analysis was performed to compare the efficacy and safety between antegrade intramedullary nailing (IMN) and plating for humeral shaft fracture.
External fixation is the most commonly used method for temporary management of open fractures of the Tibial shaft followed by internal fixation. This can also be used as a definitive method of fixation. Ilizarov is more superior and can be the primary and definite option where expertise is available. This study was conducted todetermine the outcome of open tibia shaft fracture treated with either Ilizarov or AO External Fixator.
A 65-year-old man previously treated by intramedullary nailing for a left tibial shaft fracture presented 6 years later with an open refracture of his left tibia after a motorcycle accident. Treatment required extraction of the bent nail before revision nailing.
Active learning methods have accumulated popularity due to improved results in knowledge acquisition as opposed to passive learning methods. For surgical resident physicians with limited training opportunities outside of the operating room due to time constraints, virtual reality (VR) is a relatively inexpensive and time-efficient active training method for procurement of surgical skills. We conducted a simulated intramedullary nailing (IMN) of a tibia to demonstrate VR training programs as a more effective...
Intramedullary rod fixation is a common technique for treatment of femoral shaft fractures, with both open and closed reduction techniques described. The purpose of this study was to assess union and complication rates among patients treated with open vs closed reduction and intramedullary nailing of closed femoral shaft fractures. A total of 107 patients undergoing intramedullary fixation of nonpathologic femoral shaft fractures (AO/OTA type 32) between January 2012 and June 2017 were retrospectively studi...
Tibial fractures are devastating injuries and a cause of significant morbidity. There is limited information describing the length of time it takes for these injuries to heal. The aim of this study was to define the normal distribution of healing times of a consecutive series of tibial fractures treated with intramedullary (IM) nailing by applying the Radiographic Union Scale for Tibial fractures (RUST).
Dysregulation of polymorphonuclear neutrophil (PMN) biology is associated with the development of inflammatory complications after trauma, such as acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). It has been demonstrated that intramedullary nailing is both associated with altered pulmonary neutrophil deposition and the occurrence of ARDS. This standardized study aimed to characterize the long-term remote neutrophil response in the lungs in case of a femur fracture and intramedullary nailing.
Proximal humeral fractures are a commonly encountered injury; however, no consensus has been reached for the ideal treatment. Current surgical fixation options include plate, plate with fibular strut allograft, intramedullary fixation, pinning, suture constructs, and external fixation. Each of these options possesses distinct advantages and disadvantages. With the evolution of implant design, a greater understanding of the mechanisms of failure of fixation, and the ability to preserve fracture biology, the ...
To investigate the complication rates after use of retained adjunctive plate (RAP) fixation with intramedullary nailing of Gustilo-Anderson type IIIB open tibia fractures, as part of a two-stage orthoplastic approach.
BACKGROUND The choice of optimal internal fixation device for distal tibial fractures remains controversial. The purpose of our study was to evaluate the effectiveness and safety of open reduction and internal fixation, minimally invasive percutaneous osteosynthesis, and intramedullary nailing of distal tibial fractures in adults using network meta-analysis of data from clinical trials. MATERIAL AND METHODS The studies were abstracted from MEDLINE, EMBASE, CNKI, and the Cochrane Central Register of Controll...
We report an unusual case of a closed humeral shaft fracture, with no vascular compromise, resulting in brachial compartment syndrome. Our patient was successfully treated with fasciotomy and external fixation, followed by staged open reduction and internal fixation and skin grafting.
Ipsilateral fracture of the shaft of femur and dislocation of the hip are very rare injuries. There always exists a dilemma regarding the treatment to reduce hip and choosing the appropriate method of ﬁxation for a femur fracture, and a clear consensus is yet to be reached. A number of treatment methods such as the open reduction of femur and ﬁxation followed by hip reduction have been tried so far. Ipsilateral fractures and dislocation occur due to high-energy trauma, and reduction of hip dislocation i...
Combat-related pelvic ring injuries frequently lead to placement of a temporizing external fixation device for early resuscitation and transport. These injuries are commonly complicated by concomitant polytrauma and extensive soft-tissue injuries, which may preclude early internal fixation and lead to prolonged use of external fixation. To date, few studies have reported on the outcomes of definitive external fixation for combat-related pelvic ring injuries.
Surgical fixation of comminuted mid-shaft clavicle fractures commonly employs intramedullary devices; however, pins with smooth surfaces are prone to migration, whilst threaded pins can be challenging to remove post-operatively. The aim of this study was to evaluate the biomechanical performance of fractured clavicles repaired using a novel intramedullary Echidna pin device and a non-threaded Knowles pin. The Echidna pin features retractable spines that engage with the bone to minimize migration and facilit...
Subcutaneous fixation of the anterior pelvic ring is an emerging surgical technique for trauma patients. The aim of this study was to biomechanically evaluate 2 internal fixation devices for stabilizing a disrupted pelvic ring and compare them with traditional external fixation.
Fractures of the distal femur are an increasingly common injury; the optimal management of these injuries remains controversial. The two interventions used in UK practice are intramedullary fixation, with a locked retrograde nail, and extramedullary fixation, with a fixed angle plate.
Pediatric and adolescent forearm fractures account for nearly 40% of all fractures in childhood. The incidence of these fractures has increased over the past decade with a 10-fold increase in surgical intervention. A thorough physical examination of the upper extremity, with plain radiographs of the forearm, should be obtained to make the diagnosis. The primary modality of management for closed both-bone forearm fractures is a closed reduction if needed and long arm immobilization. Patients should be follow...
Blood perfusion of skeletal muscle and callus was evaluated using contrast-enhanced ultrasonography (CEUS) in a canine osteotomy model to determine the applicability of CEUS in the assessment of neovascularization during fracture healing and to compare the vascular signals on CEUS between external skeletal fixation and cast-applied dogs. In 6 Beagle dogs, a simple transverse osteotomy was performed at the left tibial shaft and external skeletal fixation (n = 3) or a cast (n = 3) was applied. Radiography, po...
Posterior shoulder fracture-dislocations are rare. A combination of this injury with ipsilateral humeral shaft fracture is an extremely rare event. We report two cases of posterior shoulder fracture-dislocation with ipsilateral fracture shaft of humerus treated in our department. We highlight the rarity of the condition and the potential risk of recognize only the shaft fracture. We emphasize the importance of complete physical and radiological examination (x-rays and CT scan) in such cases to ensure early ...
Rising health care expenditures and declining reimbursements have generated interest in providing interventions of value. The use of external fixation is a commonly used intermediate procedure for the staged treatment of unstable fractures. External fixator constructs can vary in design and costs based on selected component configuration. The objective of this study was to evaluate cost variation and relationships to injury and noninjury characteristics in temporizing external fixation of tibial plateau fra...
Standard titanium nails (TN) or carbon fiber reinforced-PEEK nails (CFN) were compared to evaluate impact of material on fracture union, healing time, knee/ankle, and barometric pain.
To compare duration of mechanical ventilation and pulmonary outcomes in patients treated with intramedullary nail (IMN) fixation of the tibia versus the femur.
Closed reduction (CR) is sufficient to reduce the majority of femur fractures treated with flexible intramedullary nailing (FIN). No previous study has examined factors associated with failed CR of pediatric femoral shaft fractures treated with FIN. We sought to determine preoperative factors associated with failed CR. We hypothesized that fracture, patient, and surgeon characteristics would impact the need for open reduction (OR).
