The purpose of this study is to find out whether computerized tomography will be better than plain radiographs in determining pediatrics scaphoid fractures.
Background: The use of plain radiograph in the detection of pediatrics scaphoid fractures has low specificity and sensitivity. Patients with documented anatomical snuffbox tenderness and negative plain radiographs are casted in thumb spica casts and seen by a pediatrics orthopedics surgeon. However few patients with clinical scaphoid fractures have documented scaphoid fractures, with the most common injury of soft tissue injury to the surrounding tissues. The use of CT scan to detect scaphoid fractures is not well documented and may be an appropriate substitute for plain radiographs.
Hypothesis: CT scan of the wrist will have higher sensitivity and specificity in detecting pediatrics scaphoid fracture than plain radiographs.

The investigators want to analyse the advantages of using a 3D constructed prototype from a previous CT Scan to model an external customised guide por percutaneous Scaphoid fixation. The ...
Aim: The aim of this study is to analyze if fluoroscopy is as accurate as computed tomography in diagnosing displacement of acute scaphoid waist fractures. Primary null hypothesis:...
The treatment for scaphoid proximal pole nonunion remains challenging due to the poor vascularity in the proximal pole fragment, associated SL injury and the technique of fixation. Vascula...
In trauma surgery and hand surgery treatment strategies of none healing bone fractures aim at replacing pseudarthrosis by well vascularized bone and improving microcirculation. Although pr...
AIM: The aim of this study is to assess whether patients with an acute distal tubercle fracture of the scaphoid treated with a removable brace for 4 to 6 weeks have the same level of ...
Reformatting computed tomography (CT) scans along the scaphoid longitudinal axis improves the ability to detect scaphoid fractures compared with reformats along the wrist axis. However, it remains unc...
Outcomes following revision surgery for scaphoid nonunions with osteonecrosis are guarded. We hypothesized that use of free vascularized medial femoral condyle (MFC) bone grafts can lead to healing of...

Sinus floor evelation and augmentation surgery is widely used as a reliable procedure to increase insufficient bone height in the posterior maxillary area. The purpose of the present clinical study wa...
Because of its form, size and position, the scaphoid is known to be the foundation stone of the carpus, with an exceptionally important biomechanical function. Therefore evaluation of fracture morphol...

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...
Within medicine, nutrition (the study of food and the effect of its components on the body) has many different roles. Appropriate nutrition can help prevent certain diseases, or treat others. In critically ill patients, artificial feeding by tubes need t...
