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.

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
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...
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...
To investigate the assumption that reversed shoulder prosthetic replacement will give a better functional outcome compared to open reduction and internal fixation with an angular stable pl...
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...
Given the recent controversy in the literature and the alarming reports of early mechanical failure associated with the use of the Synthes 4.5 mm VA-LCP Curved Condylar Plate in acute distal femur fr...
The aim of this study is to evaluate the biomechanical effect of filling locking variable angle (VA) screw holes at the area of metaphyseal fracture comminution in a Sawbones® (Sawbones USA, Vashon, ...
A simple and efficient femtosecond nonlinear polarization evolution (NPE) mode-locked laser is presented. Different from conventional NPE fiber lasers, the polarization beam splitter (PBS) is three-di...
The Scarf osteotomy is a commonly used surgical procedure for treating hallux valgus in Europe. Screw fixation is standard practice, although some surgeons now go without internal fixation. Plate fixa...
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.
Critical care treatment using intensive monitoring and aggressive management of perioperative hemodynamics in high risk patients,
Hospital units providing continuous surveillance and care to acutely ill infants and children. Neonates are excluded since INTENSIVE CARE UNITS, NEONATAL is available.
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.
An early embryonic developmental process of CHORDATES that is characterized by morphogenic movements of ECTODERM resulting in the formation of the NEURAL PLATE; the NEURAL CREST; and the NEURAL TUBE. Improper closure of the NEURAL GROOVE results in congenital NEURAL TUBE DEFECTS.
Osteoporosis is a disease in which the bones become extremely porous, are subject to fracture, and heal slowly, occurring especially in women following menopause and often leading to curvature of the spine from vertebral collapse. Follow and track&n...
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
