Proximal Femur Locking Compression Plates Versus Trochanteric Nails

2014-07-23 21:08:59 | BioPortfolio


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 proximal femur locking plate or a trochanteric nail.

"Proximal femur locking plates" stands for both the PF-LCP (Synthes) and the PeriLoc (Smith & Nephew). Trochanteric nails allowed in this study are the Proximal Femoral Nail Antirotation (PFNA), the Titanium Trochanteric Fixation Nail (TFN) and the Gamma Nail (GN).

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Separation of nail plate from the underlying nail bed. It can be a sign of skin disease, infection (such as ONYCHOMYCOSIS) or tissue injury.

Diseases of the nail plate and tissues surrounding it. The concept is limited to primates.

A developmental deformity in which the metaphysis of the FEMUR moves proximally and anteriorly away from FEMUR HEAD (epiphysis) at the upper GROWTH PLATE. It is most common in male adolescents and is associated with a greater risk of early OSTEOARTHRITIS of the hip.

Muscles of the anterolateral abdominal wall consisting of the external oblique and the internal oblique muscles. The external abdominal oblique muscle fibers extend from lower thoracic ribs to the linea alba and the iliac crest. The internal abdominal oblique extend superomedially beneath the external oblique muscles.

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.
