Intramedullary Fixation of Humerus Fractures Without Intramedullary Reaming

2014-07-23 21:09:49 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of the study is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of the composite Nail - the Quantum interlocking intramedullary nailing system in the reduction of humeral fractures.

Description

The study will include 20 patients who have an acute mid shaft diaphyseal humeral fracture due to injury. The patients will undergo lateral and AP X- ray evaluation of the fracture. Following General anesthesia, closed reduction of the fracture will be performed. It will be followed by nail insertion, percutaneously, according to standard surgical techniques, with the help of the insertion handle and without preliminary reaming. Following insertion the nail will be locked both distally and proximally using interlocking screws. The nail and screws insertion will be monitored by fluoroscopy. Patients will remain under follow up for 6 months following the procedure. In the follow up sessions the fracture will be evaluated by fluoroscopy or X-ray for correct bone alignment, callus formation, and fracture union.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Fractures of the HUMERUS.

Fractures of the short, constricted portion of the thigh bone between the femur head and the trochanters. It excludes intertrochanteric fractures which are HIP FRACTURES.

Nanometer sized fragments (the dots) of semiconductor crystalline material which emit PHOTONS. The wavelength is based on the quantum confinement size of the dot. They are brighter and more persistent than organic chemical INDICATORS. They can be embedded in MICROBEADS for high throughput ANALYTICAL CHEMISTRY.

Fractures of the FEMUR HEAD; the FEMUR NECK; (FEMORAL NECK FRACTURES); the trochanters; or the inter- or subtrochanteric region. Excludes fractures of the acetabulum and fractures of the femoral shaft below the subtrochanteric region (FEMORAL FRACTURES).

Fractures of the skull which may result from penetrating or nonpenetrating head injuries or rarely BONE DISEASES (see also FRACTURES, SPONTANEOUS). Skull fractures may be classified by location (e.g., SKULL FRACTURE, BASILAR), radiographic appearance (e.g., linear), or based upon cranial integrity (e.g., SKULL FRACTURE, DEPRESSED).
