Periprosthetic Fractures of the Femur Treated by Osteosynthesis

2016-08-04 05:53:22 | BioPortfolio


Observational retrospective study on 36 consecutive patients having had surgery for a periprosthetic fracture of the femur between 2010 and 2015.

The goal of the study is to test whether osteosynthesis was a secure choice at a certain age and with any type of Vancouver fracture.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Internal devices used in osteosynthesis to hold the position of the fracture in proper alignment. By applying the principles of biomedical engineering, the surgeon uses metal plates, nails, rods, etc., for the correction of skeletal defects.

Implantable fracture fixation devices attached to bone fragments with screws to bridge the fracture gap and shield the fracture site from stress as bone heals. (UMDNS, 1999)

The constricted portion of the thigh bone between the femur head and the trochanters.

Fracture in the proximal half of the shaft of the ulna, with dislocation of the head of the radius.

The use of metallic devices inserted into or through bone to hold a fracture in a set position and alignment while it heals.
