Prosthesis Versus Osteosynthesis in Proximal Tibia Fractures

The aim of this study is to compare knee function and pain one year after treatment of intra-articular proximal tibia fracture using either osteosynthesis with a locking plate (ORIF) or pr...

Operative Treatment of Extraarticular Colles' Fractures of the Distal Radius (OTEC)

This is a prospective, randomized, multi-center pilot study of unstable extraarticular fractures of the distal radius with dorsal displacement of the distal fragment in elderly patients. T...

Minimally Invasive of Proximal Humerus Fractures With Internal Fixation Improves Shoulder Function in Older Patients

This study protocol represents an attempt to objectively choose appropriate methods for internal fixation of proximal humerus fractures in older patients by comparing locking compression p...

Long Term Follow up of the DVR-A Locking Plate

The surgical treatment of wrist fractures (distal radius bone) has been changed by the introduction of a new plate design, the locking plate. This results in improved fixation and stabili...

Clinical Outcome After Treatment of Patellar Fractures With Locking Plates

Depending on the fracture pattern of patellar fractures tension band wiring, interfragmentary screw fixation or combinations are common treatments. But there are several problems associate...

Biomechanical evaluation of hybrid double plate osteosynthesis using a locking plate and an inverted third tubular plate for the treatment of proximal humeral fractures.

Treating proximal humerus fractures can be challenging because of large metaphyseal defects that conceal anatomical landmarks. In such cases, medial cortical support with, for example, calcar screws, ...

Early complications and radiological outcome after distal radius fractures stabilized by volar angular stable locking plate.

Distal radius fractures (DRF) are the most common fractures of the upper extremities. The incidence is expected to continue rising in the next years due to the increased life expectancy. Palmar lockin...

Biomechanical Analysis of Superior and Anterior Pre-Contoured Plate Fixation Techniques for Neer Type II-A Clavicle Fractures.

There is limited biomechanical data supporting the use of anterior or superior-lateral pre-contoured clavicle plates for the treatment of displaced Neer Type II-A clavicle fractures. The objectives of...

Flexor pollicis longus tendon rupture by sandwiched underlying volar locking plate and distal radius.

Flexor pollicis longus (FPL) tendon rupture is a major complication of volar locking plate fixation for distal radius fractures. The tendon rupture is usually caused by friction between the distal edg...

A Comparison of Clinical and Radiological Outcomes of Minimally Invasive and Conventional Plate Osteosynthesis for Midshaft Clavicle Fractures.

Thirty patients with displaced midshaft clavicle fractures were prospectively enrolled in this study. Fifteen were randomly assigned to the minimally invasive plate osteosynthesis group and 15 to the ...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Fractures involving a GROWTH PLATE.

Fractures of the proximal humerus, including the head, anatomic and surgical necks, and tuberosities.

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.

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.

The region in the dorsal ECTODERM of a chordate embryo that gives rise to the future CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM. Tissue in the neural plate is called the neuroectoderm, often used as a synonym of neural plate.
