The number of osteoporotic fractures, among which the fractures of the lower extremity of the radius (16 % of fractures seen in emergencies) is going to increase. Several surgical techniques are described in particular locking plates and intrafocal pinning techniques.
The aim of the study is to compare (X-ray assessments and functional outcome) these two types of treatment by using a prospective, randomised multicentric analysis.
Because an increasing number of elderly patient, the number of osteoporotic fractures, among which the fractures of the lower extremity of the radius (16 % of fractures seen in emergencies) is going to increase. Several surgical techniques exist of which in particular locking plates and intrafocal pinning.
The availability of new materials (locking plates with angular stability) seems to reduce the risks of osteosynthesis failure and seems to give more constant results: hawever, the price to pay is a more invasive technique and a superior cost. The rehabilitation seems also faster, allowing the possibility to get back the maximum of autonomy.
These clinical facts need of course to be validated.

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...
The incidence of distal radius fracture (DRF) increases with age, and thus, because of improving life expectancies, these fractures are set to become more common. Fractures of the distal r...
The skin, the bones, and most muscles received branches from the source arteries of at least two angiosomes, thus revealing one of the important anastomotic pathways by which the circulati...
Fractures of the distal radius are one of the most common orthopaedic injuries and are associated with a high complication rate. There is a lack of clinical trials comparing the different ...
This is a randomized trial comparing conservative with surgical treatment (with open reduction and locking plate fixation) for proximal humeral fractures in patients aged more than 60 year...
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...
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...
Although volar locking plates (VLPs) have been exclusively used for unstable distal radius fractures (DRFs), the optimal management of distal ulna fractures (DUFs) remains controversial. Internal fixa...
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, ...
Operative treatments of T-type acetabular fractures are challenging surgical procedures. Open reduction and internal fixation is the standard method for the operative management of these fractures, ho...
Fractures of the RADIUS.
Fractures involving a GROWTH PLATE.
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.
A light and spongy (pneumatized) bone that lies between the orbital part of FRONTAL BONE and the anterior of SPHENOID BONE. Ethmoid bone separates the ORBIT from the ETHMOID SINUS. It consists of a horizontal plate, a perpendicular plate, and two lateral labyrinths.
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.
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
Radiology is the branch of medicine that studies imaging of the body; X-ray (basic, angiography, barium swallows), ultrasound, MRI, CT and PET. These imaging techniques can be used to diagnose, but also to treat a range of conditions, by allowing visuali...
