Tibial shaft fractures is common long tubular fracture that account for about 13.7% of all fractures. And the incidence of nonunion of tibial shaft fracture varied from 1% to 80%. This study aimed to confirm the risk factors of nonunion of tibial shaft fracture. Moreover, the investigators hope to establish the clinical pathway of various risk factors for fracture nonunion and affirm the importance of different risk factors.
Tibial shaft fractures is common long tubular fracture that account for about 13.7% of all fractures. And the incidence of nonunion of tibial shaft fracture varied from 1% to 80%. The investigators retrospectively analyzed the demographics of these participants in our hospital that occur long tubular fracture. One group is participants that existed fracture nonunion. And the other group is the participants that did not exist fracture nonunion. The investigators recorded twelve variables and confirm the risk factors by uni-variate Logistic regression analysis. Moreover, the investigators hope to establish the clinical pathway of various risk factors for fracture nonunion and affirm the importance of different risk factors.

Rationale: The Emergency Department (ED) typically serves as the front line for patients with acute fractures and tendon ruptures. Pain control for these patients is an essential task of t...
The primary objective of this study is to evaluate the long-term outcome after inserting an intramedullary nail in patients with a tibial shaft fracture using an injury-specific questionna...
Fracture of lateral humeral condyle in children is not uncommon.The nonunion means no healing of the fracture after 3 months from the injury.Delayed union means no healing from 6 weels to ...
Although the optimal treatment for femur shaft fracture is intramedullary nailing fixation, nonunion still occurs. We determined the oligotrophic nonunion rate among femur fractures managed operativel...
To develop a tool that can be used pre-operatively to identify patients at risk of poor functional outcome following operative repair of fracture nonunion.
The objective of this study was to review the efficacy of a treatment approach for patients with positive intraoperative cultures during fracture nonunion surgery. The authors performed a retrospectiv...
Osteoporotic vertebral nonunion is a special type of osteoporotic vertebral fracture and can gain satisfactory clinical outcomes using vertebral augmentation. In the rare occurrence that augmented ver...
Pedicled vascularized bone graft (VBG) is a useful method in treating the scaphoid fracture nonunion, especially when the avascular necrosis exists. Humpback deformity is an important issue that we ha...
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)
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.
Fracture of the lower end of the radius in which the lower fragment is displaced posteriorly.
The use of internal devices (metal plates, nails, rods, etc.) to hold the position of a fracture in proper alignment.
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...
