Effectiveness of Intensive Rehabilitation on Shoulder Function After Proximal Humerus Fracture

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


The fracture of the proximal humerus represents 4% of the fractures encountered in clinics and it must be treated surgically. Thus, the aim of the surgical treatment is to maintain bone alignment, articular congruity, vascularization of the humeral head and provide a painless shoulder with satisfactory function.

The objective of this study is to demonstrate the potential benefits of an early rehabilitation program on shoulder function.

Plate Fixation Versus Intramedullary Nailing of 3 and 4 Part Proximal Humerus Fractures

The purpose of the project is to compare the management of 3 and 4 part proximal humerus fractures (PHF) with an angular stable plate (Philos) with that of an intramedullary nail (Multiloc...

To explore clinical effectiveness of PHILOS plate fixation and hemi-shoulder arthroplasty in treating three or four-part fractures of proximal humerus

Surgical Interventions for the Treatment of Humeral Shaft Fractures

This study intends to determine the best surgical treatment for humeral shaft fractures. One third of the patients will be treated with open reduction and internal fixation with plate; one...

Volar Plating or External Fixation of Dorsally Displaced Fractures of the Distal Radius?

Promising results have been reported after volar locked plating of unstable dorsally displaced fractures of the distal radius. It offers stable fixation and early mobilization. The investi...

Displaced Proximal Humeral Fractures: Delta Prothesis or Philos Plate?

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...

Unicortical and bicortical plating in the fixation of comminuted fractures of the clavicle: a biomechanical study.

Intraoperative neurovascular complications with clavicle fracture fixation are often due to far cortex penetration by drills and screws, but could be avoided using a unicortical construct. The objecti...

Use of the MatrixWAVE™ system with dentures to establish maxillomandibular fixation in edentulous patients.

Various methods have been described to establish maxillomandibular fixation in the treatment of fractures of atrophic, edentulous mandibles. We used the Synthes MatrixWAVE™ system (DePuy Synthes) in...
