Comparing Locked Plating to Intramedullary Nailing in Tibia Fractures

2014-07-23 21:11:09 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The investigators are comparing two methods of standard treatments in distal tibial fractures. locked plating (M.I.P.O. technique) with intramedullary nailing.

the investigators are hypothesizing that M.I.P.O group is superior to nailing in fractures of the distal third of the tibia.

Description

The kind of plates we are comparing are the Locked plates form Synthes ® using the minimally invasive technique vs the Expert Tibial Nail® from Synthes ®

Anterior intermeniscal ligament: frequency in MRI studies and spatial relationship to the entry point for intramedullary tibial nailing related to the risk of iatrogenic violation.

Anterior knee pain is the most common complication after intramedullary tibial nailing. Often, the cause is multifactorial and individually different. Violation of the anterior intermeniscal ligament ...

Utility of cement injection to stabilize split-depression tibial plateau fracture by minimally invasive methods: A finite element analysis.

Knee pain and functional scores after intramedullary nailing of tibial shaft fractures using a suprapatellar approach.

To evaluate the effects of intramedullar nailing of the tibia using a suprapatellar approach with respect to pain and function of the knee.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Procedures that avoid use of open invasive surgery in favor of closed or local surgery. These generally involve use of laparoscopic devices and remote-control manipulation of instruments with indirect observation of the surgical field through an endoscope or similar device. With the reduced trauma associated with minimally invasive surgery, long hospital stays may be reduced with increased rates of short stay or day surgery.

The anterior and posterior arteries created at the bifurcation of the popliteal artery. The anterior tibial artery begins at the lower border of the popliteus muscle and lies along the tibia at the distal part of the leg to surface superficially anterior to the ankle joint. Its branches are distributed throughout the leg, ankle, and foot. The posterior tibial artery begins at the lower border of the popliteus muscle, lies behind the tibia in the lower part of its course, and is found situated between the medial malleolus and the medial process of the calcaneal tuberosity. Its branches are distributed throughout the leg and foot.

Procedures that avoid use of open, invasive surgery in favor of closed or local surgery. These generally involve use of laparoscopic devices and remote-controlled manipulation of instruments with indirect observation of the surgical field through an endoscope or similar device.

The interarticular fibrocartilages of the superior surface of the tibia.

SKELETAL MUSCLE pain and tenderness along the posteromedial TIBIA resulting from exercise such as running and other physical activity.
