Conservative Treatment Versus the Surgical Treatment of Diaphyseal Fractures of Humerus

2014-07-23 21:09:20 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The fracture of the humeral diaphysis is a condition that represents 2% of all fractures. The conservative treatment of diaphyseal fractures of the humerus has long been considered the only option and the surgical treatment was primarily reserved for displaced fractures with no contact of bone ends. However, for a few years there has been an upsurge of indications for the surgical treatment of diaphyseal fractures.

The purpose of this study is to compare the functional outcomes and the quality of life of surgically treated patients versus those who undergo a conservative treatment.

Humeral shaft fractures.

There is still no gold standard for the treatment of humeral shaft fractures. This might be attributed to the fact that several commonly used treatment methods have shown good clinical results. A bimo...

Modified use of Proximal Humeral Interlocking Plate (PHILOS) in lateral malleolus fracture, fnctional and radiological outcome in series of 13 cases.

Lateral malleolus fracture can occur alone or is associated with the fracture of the medial malleolus leading to ankle instability. Treatment is aimed to achieve anatomical reduction and ensure stabil...

Is distal locking screw necessary for intramedullary nailing in the treatment of humeral shaft fractures? A comparative cohort study.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

BONE SCREWS to be used in the pedicle of the vertebral arch.

Compression of the rotator cuff tendons and subacromial bursa between the humeral head and structures that make up the coracoacromial arch and the humeral tuberosities. This condition is associated with subacromial bursitis and rotator cuff (largely supraspinatus) and bicipital tendon inflammation, with or without degenerative changes in the tendon. Pain that is most severe when the arm is abducted in an arc between 40 and 120 degrees, sometimes associated with tears in the rotator cuff, is the chief symptom. (From Jablonski's Dictionary of Syndromes and Eponymic Diseases, 2d ed)

The head of a long bone that is separated from the shaft by the epiphyseal plate until bone growth stops. At that time, the plate disappears and the head and shaft are united.

Support systems that provide assistance and encouragement to individuals with physical or emotional disabilities in order that they may better cope. Informal social support is usually provided by friends, relatives, or peers, while formal assistance is provided by churches, groups, etc.
