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.

Filling Open Screw Holes in the Area of Metaphyseal Comminution Does Not Affect Fatigue Life of the Synthes Variable Angle Distal Femoral Locking Plate in the AO/OTA 33-A3 Fracture Model.

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, ...

Simple and efficient nonlinear polarization evolution mode-locked fiber laser by three-dimensionally manipulating a polarization beam splitter.

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...

Comparison of screw versus locked plate fixation for Scarf osteotomy treatment of hallux valgus.

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...

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.
