Long Term Follow up of the DVR-A Locking Plate

2014-07-23 21:09:06 | BioPortfolio

Summary

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 stabilisation of the fracture fragments allowing early movement.

This type of plate has been increasingly used throughout the world but questions have been raised regarding the potential complications of the surgery, particularly nerve and tendon injury. The Norfolk and Norwich Hospital has treated over 250 distal radial fractures with this type of plate. The investigators plan to recall these patients to asses their long term function, general satisfaction and radiological results.

Outcome Study of Complex Distal Radius Fractures

The purpose of this study is to collect information about how people do after different treatments of a broken wrist to see if one treatment has better results.

Prosthesis Versus Osteosynthesis in Proximal Tibia Fractures

The aim of this study is to compare knee function and pain one year after treatment of intra-articular proximal tibia fracture using either osteosynthesis with a locking plate (ORIF) or pr...

Comparison of Volar Locking Plate Fixation Alone and Volar Locking Plate Fixation Plus Calcium Phosphate Bone Cement Augmentation for Distal Radius Fractures Patients Aged More Than 65

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...

Titanium mini locking plate with trans-osseous sutures for the treatment of humeral greater tuberosity fracture osteosynthesis versus PHILOS: a retrospective view.

Greater tuberosity fractures (GTFs) account for 17 to 21% of proximal humerus fractures, most of these fractures are treated conservatively, but treatment for displaced fractures is still controversia...

Anterolateral distal tibia locking plate osteosynthesis and their ability to capture OTAC3 pilon fragments.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

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.

Disease involving the RADIAL NERVE. Clinical features include weakness of elbow extension, elbow flexion, supination of the forearm, wrist and finger extension, and thumb abduction. Sensation may be impaired over regions of the dorsal forearm. Common sites of compression or traumatic injury include the AXILLA and radial groove of the HUMERUS.

The region in the dorsal ECTODERM of a chordate embryo that gives rise to the future CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM. Tissue in the neural plate is called the neuroectoderm, often used as a synonym of neural plate.
