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.

Follow-up for Locking Plate Fixaion of Distal Radius Fracture

The current status of the disease under study. Including natural history, disease prognosis. Distal radial fractures (DRF, distal radius fractures) are the most common fractures, allowing...

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...

Unstable Fractures of the Distal Radius: Randomised Controlled Trial of Volar Plate Versus Dorsal Nail Plate Fixation

Fractures of the distal radius are one of the most common orthopaedic injuries and are associated with a high complication rate. There is a lack of clinical trials comparing the different ...

Comparison of Direct Perioperative Costs in Treatment of Unstable Distal Radial Fractures: Open Reduction and Internal Fixation Versus Closed Reduction and Percutaneous Pinning.

As the United States transitions to value-based insurance, bundled payments, and capitated models, it is paramount to understand health-care costs and resource utilization. The financial implications ...

Flexor pollicis longus tendon rupture by sandwiched underlying volar locking plate and distal radius.

Flexor pollicis longus (FPL) tendon rupture is a major complication of volar locking plate fixation for distal radius fractures. The tendon rupture is usually caused by friction between the distal edg...

Fractures of the tibial pilon treated by open reduction and internal fixation (locking compression plate-less invasive stabilising system): Complications and sequelae.

The aim of this study was to evaluate variables that could be related to complications and sequelae in fractures of the tibial pilon treated by open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF) with a locki...

A Comparison of the Effect of One, Three, or Six Weeks of Immobilization on Function and Pain After Open Reduction and Internal Fixation of Distal Radial Fractures in Adults: A Randomized Controlled Trial.

The optimum period of immobilization following open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF) of distal radial fractures has not been established.

Conservative treatment of distal ulna metaphyseal fractures associated with distal radius fractures in elderly people.

Although volar locking plates (VLPs) have been exclusively used for unstable distal radius fractures (DRFs), the optimal management of distal ulna fractures (DUFs) remains controversial. Internal fixa...

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.
