Proximal femoral fractures are a typical pathology in elderly patients after a low-energy trauma. This study analyses preexisting risk factors for proximal femoral fractures as well as fo...
Pertrochanteric and subtrochanteric femur fractures will be treated with a Gamma 3 nail or an ACE Trochanteric nail. Following topics will be assessed: fracture consolidation, mobility, p...
The purpose of this study is to compare the abductor muscle strength measured with a dynamometer in patients with reverse oblique inter- or subtrochanteric fractures treated either with a ...
Minimally invasive PFNA fixation for the treatment of intertrochanteric femoral fracture will be used in 20 patients within 2 years to objectively validate the safety and effectiveness of ...
This study evaluates the potential negative effect of cement augmentation in the femoral head on viability of the head. Half of the participants will have the standard intramedullary nail ...
The proximal femoral nail antirotation (PFNA-II) is designed for fixation of unstable proximal femoral fractures in Asian patients due to its superior biomechanical properties. The helical blade achie...
The aim of this study was to compare the clinical and radiological results of InterTan nail and proximal femoral nail antirotation (PFNA) in the treatment of reverse intertrochanteric fractures (AO/OT...
Femoral lengthening is performed by distraction osteogenesis via lengthening over a nail (LON) or by using a magnetic lengthening nail (MLN). MLN avoids the complications of external fixation while pr...
The term retronychia describes the proximal ingrowth of the nail that occurs when the nail plate (NP) embeds backwards into the proximal nail fold (PNF). Proximal avulsion of the nail remains the trea...
Techniques for treating distal femoral aseptic nonunions associated with antegrade locked nail breakage are controversial. Each technique has unique advantages and disadvantages. Retrograde dynamic lo...
Excessive lateral nail growth into the nail fold. Because the lateral margin of the nail acts as a foreign body, inflammation and granulation may result. It is caused by improperly fitting shoes and by improper trimming of the nail.
The renal tubule portion that extends from the BOWMAN CAPSULE in the KIDNEY CORTEX into the KIDNEY MEDULLA. The proximal tubule consists of a convoluted proximal segment in the cortex, and a distal straight segment descending into the medulla where it forms the U-shaped LOOP OF HENLE.
An amino acid sequence of about 50 residues long that is composed of X n-long repeats which form a four-stranded anti-parallel BETA-SHEET as a structural component, or blade, of a beta-propeller.
A groin hernia occurring inferior to the inguinal ligament and medial to the FEMORAL VEIN and FEMORAL ARTERY. The femoral hernia sac has a small neck but may enlarge considerably when it enters the subcutaneous tissue of the thigh. It is caused by defects in the ABDOMINAL WALL.
Separation of nail plate from the underlying nail bed. It can be a sign of skin disease, infection (such as ONYCHOMYCOSIS) or tissue injury.
