This is a prospective, randomized, multi-center pilot study of isolated, displaced neck fractures of the fifth metacarpal. The patients are randomly assigned to osteosynthesis with antegra...
BACKGROUND. Distal radius fractures (FRD) are up to 17% of all diagnosed fractures and are the most commonly treated fractures in adult orthopedic patients. The management could be either ...
This study aims to compare the functional results of two different therapeutic approaches in patients that present with a 5th metacarpal neck fracture. Patients will be randomly assigned t...
In trauma surgery and hand surgery treatment strategies of none healing bone fractures aim at replacing pseudarthrosis by well vascularized bone and improving microcirculation. Although pr...
Despite the high prevalence (20% of the hand fractures) of unstable neck metacarpals fractures (boxer's fractures) there is still no consensus concerning the preferred method and ideal mom...
Metacarpal shaft fractures that necessitate surgery are frequently fixated with either intramedullary pins or plates and screws. This study compared outcome measurements of these two techniques.
We present a rare case of a previously healthy 16-year-old boy who sustained simultaneous bilateral femoral neck fractures after a single first-time seizure episode. He was diagnosed to have severe vi...
Supracondylar humerus fractures with an obliquely oriented fracture pattern can pose a clinical challenge in obtaining adequate fixation. Traditionally, 1.6mm Kirchner wires are utilized for fracture ...
Femoral neck stress fractures are overuse injuries with devastating consequences if not diagnosed and treated appropriately. The aim of this study was to retrospectively review femoral neck stress fra...
Objective The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of resident level of training on fluoroscopy duration in pediatric supracondylar humeral fractures treated with closed reduction and perc...
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.
Fractures due to the strain caused by repetitive exercise. They are thought to arise from a combination of MUSCLE FATIGUE and bone failure, and occur in situations where BONE REMODELING predominates over repair. The most common sites of stress fractures are the METATARSUS; FIBULA; TIBIA; and FEMORAL NECK.
Fractures of the FEMUR HEAD; the FEMUR NECK; (FEMORAL NECK FRACTURES); the trochanters; or the inter- or subtrochanteric region. Excludes fractures of the acetabulum and fractures of the femoral shaft below the subtrochanteric region (FEMORAL FRACTURES).
Crumbling or smashing of cancellous BONE by forces acting parallel to the long axis of bone. It is applied particularly to vertebral body fractures (SPINAL FRACTURES). (Blauvelt and Nelson, A Manual of Orthopedic Terminology, 1994, p4)
Agents that inhibit BONE RESORPTION and/or favor BONE MINERALIZATION and BONE REGENERATION. They are used to heal BONE FRACTURES and to treat METABOLIC BONE DISEASES.
