Acromio-clavicular Dislocation Type III - Conservative Treatment Versus Surgical Hook Plate Treatment

2014-07-23 21:09:26 | BioPortfolio


Acromio-clavicular (AC) joint dislocation corresponds to 8.6% of all joint dislocations and represents a major injury to the shoulder girdle. The nature of the treatment is decided according to the severity of the lesion.

The purpose of this study is to determine whether the surgical treatment is required or not for type III AC joint dislocations.

Fixation of Displaced Midshaft Clavicular Fractures in Adults by Intramedullary Elastic Rod

Clavicular fracture, constitutes 2.6% e 5% of all adult fractures, most are located in the midshaft clavicle with different degrees of displacement. Conservative methods are commonly used ...

The Treatment of Clavicular Fractures

Patients with a displaced, shortened, midshaft clavicular fracture are randomized in two groups: conservative or operative treatment. The conservative arm is treated with a sling for 6 wee...

Plate Osteosynthesis Versus ESIN of Displaced Midclavicular Fractures

The purpose of this study is to compare two widely used operative techniques on displaced midshaft clavicular fractures. The hypothesis is that there is no difference in functional outcome...

Conservative Treatment Versus the Surgical Treatment of Diaphyseal Fractures of Humerus

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 onl...

Comparing the coracoclavicular loop technique with a hook plate for the treatment of distal clavicle fractures.

Treatment of displaced distal clavicular fractures is still controversial. This study reports the utility of a new coracoclavicular (CC) loop technique for acute displaced distal clavicular fractures ...

Surgical Treatment of Zone 1 Fifth Metatarsal Base Fractures Using the Locking Compression Plate Distal Ulna Hook Plate.

The distal ulna hook plate was recently introduced for the treatment of fifth metatarsal base fractures, but no special articles have reported the surgical results of the plate fixation of displaced o...

Outcome of Repair of Distal Radial and Ulnar Fractures in Dogs Weighing 4 kg or Less Using a 1.5-mm Locking Adaption Plate or 2.0-mm Limited Contact Dynamic Compression Plate.

Objectives Retrospective evaluation of repairing distal radial and ulnar fractures in small breed dogs with the Synthes 1.5-mm locking Adaption plate system and compare results in a similar group of...

Comparative Results of External Fixation, Plating or Nonoperative Management for Diaphyseal Clavicle Fractures

The aim of this study was to compare the treatment outcomes of mid-diaphyseal clavicular fractures between external fixator and more widely selected treatment options such as plate osteosynthesis or c...

Managing acromio-clavicular joint pain: a scoping review.

Shoulder pain secondary to acromioclavicular joint pain is a common presentation in primary and secondary care but is often poorly managed as a result of uncertainty about optimal treatment strategies...

Therapeutic approaches that are limited, gradual, or well-established as opposed to radical methods.

An AT-hook-containing (AT-HOOK MOTIFS) nuclear protein that may be involved in retinoid-dependent transcriptional activity.

An AT-hook-containing (AT-HOOK MOTIFS) nuclear protein that is expressed predominantly in proliferating and undifferentiated mesenchymal cells.

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.

An 11-kDa AT-hook motif-containing (AT-HOOK MOTIFS) protein that binds to the minor grove of AT-rich regions of DNA. It is the full-length product of the alternatively-spliced HMGA1 gene and may function as an architectural chromatin binding protein that is involved in transcriptional regulation.
