Simple Decompression Versus Anterior Transposition of the Ulnar Nerve

2014-07-24 14:10:17 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Both simple decompression and anterior transposition of the elbow nerve (ulnar nerve) for acute displaced fractures of the elbow (distal humerus) treated with plate fixation are currently used by surgeons. We want to examine which treatment will overall give better results in regards to arm function and residual pain.

Humeral shaft fractures.

There is still no gold standard for the treatment of humeral shaft fractures. This might be attributed to the fact that several commonly used treatment methods have shown good clinical results. A bimo...

Subcutaneous internal anterior fixation of pelvis fractures-which configuration of the InFix is clinically optimal?-a retrospective study.

Subcutaneous internal fixation (InFix) has become a valid alternative for anterior fixation of pelvic ring injuries. Complications associated with this technique are lateral femoral cutaneous nerve (L...

ANTERIOR APPROACH IN HUMERAL PLATING OSTEOSYNTHESIS.

Humeral plating osteosynthesis is controversial, particularly regarding the choice between anterior and lateral approach, data for which in the context of a low-income country are lacking.

Minimally invasive screw fixation is as stable as anterior plating in acetabular T-Type fractures - a biomechanical Study.

Operative treatments of T-type acetabular fractures are challenging surgical procedures. Open reduction and internal fixation is the standard method for the operative management of these fractures, ho...

Six-year experience with antegrade intramedullary nail for the treatment of proximal and diaphyseal humeral fractures.

Proximal and shaft humeral fractures are very common worldwide; surgical treatment can be a viable option to reduce limb immobilization and to allow the patient an earlier return to daily activities. ...

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.

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).

Crumbling or smashing of cancellous BONE by forces acting parallel to the long axis of bone. It is applied particularly to vertebral body fractures (SPINAL FRACTURES). (Blauvelt and Nelson, A Manual of Orthopedic Terminology, 1994, p4)
