Prediction trial, up to 10 sites in Asia and Europe
To better understand the "success" or "failure" after orthopedic trauma surgery by developing a model that can be applied clinically as a user-friendly "baseline" questionnaire - capable of predicting "success" or "failure" based on a patient's pre-surgical expectations of their final outcome and to validate a novel outcomes measure (TOM).
To assess the psychometric properties of predictive validity, internal consistency and reproducibility of the trauma expectation factor (TEF) in the Eurasian population.
To assess the psychometric properties of criterion validity, internal consistency,reproducibility, and sensitivity to change of the TOM in the Eurasian population.
Key questions related to patient and surgeon expectations:
- How different, or similar, are patient and surgeon expectations?
- Do expectations change over time?
- Do patient expectations predict outcomes in validated measures use today?

This post market clinical follow-up is to confirm the clinical usefulness of the Expert Tibial Nail (ETN) PROtect device for operative stabilization in patients with a tibia fracture as me...
To monitor morphological feature and related osteogenic and bone metabolic change during healing of tibia fracture in a rat model.
Ankle fractures are among the most common type of fractures in the lower extremity. A posterior malleolar fracture is frequently part of a more complex ankle fracture and only in rare cases it occurs ...
Injuries about the proximal tibia are quite common in children. Understanding the mechanisms of injury and treatment strategies is imperative for practitioners caring for these patients. Similarly, ap...
This paper reports on a sensor for monitoring bone plate strain in real time. The detected bone plate strain could be used for judging the healing state of fractures in patients. The sensor consists o...
The best treatment for fractures of the distal tibia remains controversial. Most such fractures require surgical fixation but outcomes are unpredictable and complications are common.
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.
