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).

The aim of the study is to compare the results regarding fracture healing and functional outcome after the treatment of proximal humeral fractures with the four different treatment metho...
The main goal of the study is to determine which cephalomedullary nail results in a better functional outcome for the patient with an unstable intertrochanteric hip fracture. Subjects will...
This study looks at two (2) types of surgical treatments and hopes to answer the question, "which is the best way to surgically treat a distal femur fracture?" Both procedures being studie...
Minimally invasive PFNA fixation for the treatment of intertrochanteric femoral fracture will be used in 20 patients within 2 years to objectively validate the safety and effectiveness of ...
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...
Several therapeutic strategies have been used for managing unicameral bone cyst (UBC) of the proximal femur. However, there is insufficient evidence to support one treatment over another, and the opti...
To explore the curative effect and the recessive loss of blooding of PFNA for the treatment of intertrochanteric fractures of femur.
The goal of this study was to compare a 3-hole vs. a 4-hole sliding hip screw (SHS) in the presence of a retrograde intramedullary (RIM) nail for fixing intertrochanteric and comminuted midshaft femur...
To describe long-term results of locking plate used for the treatment of non-osteoporotic fresh three- and four-part proximal humeral fractures with at least 2 years follow-up.
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.
