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 ®

Prosthesis Versus Osteosynthesis in Proximal Tibia Fractures

The aim of this study is to compare knee function and pain one year after treatment of intra-articular proximal tibia fracture using either osteosynthesis with a locking plate (ORIF) or pr...

Anterior Knee Pain After Tibial Nailing

Anterior knee pain (AKP) is a common complication following intramedullary (IM) nailing of a tibial shaft fracture. The purpose of this prospective study was to determine if there is an as...

Surgical Interventions for the Treatment of Humeral Shaft Fractures

This study intends to determine the best surgical treatment for humeral shaft fractures. One third of the patients will be treated with open reduction and internal fixation with plate; one...

Study Evaluating InductOs in Diaphyseal Tibia Fractures

Demonstrate a larger proportion of subjects with healed fractures among subjects treated with InductOs and reamed, locked intramedullary nailing compared to subjects treated with reamed, l...

Intramedullary Nailing Versus Plate Fixation of Ankle Fractures. A Prospective, Randomized Controlled Trial.

The purpose of this study is to make a survey of functional outcome, radiological outcome and complication rate after intramedullary nailing (IMN) and plate fixation of Weber B ankle fract...

Limited Open Reduction and Percutaneous Plate Osteosynthesis - Alternative Option to Minimally Invasive Plate Osteosynthesis in Management of Distal Tibia Fractures.

The management of distal tibia fracture is challenging because of the limited soft tissue coverage and poor vascularity around the bone in that area. Minimally invasive percutaneous plate osteosynthes...

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

Treatment for fractures of the tibial plateau is in most cases carried out by stable fixation in order to allow early mobilization. Minimally invasive technologies such as tibioplasty or stabilization...

A Comparison of Clinical and Radiological Outcomes of Minimally Invasive and Conventional Plate Osteosynthesis for Midshaft Clavicle Fractures.

Thirty patients with displaced midshaft clavicle fractures were prospectively enrolled in this study. Fifteen were randomly assigned to the minimally invasive plate osteosynthesis group and 15 to the ...

Effect of intramedullary nail compression amount on the union process of tibial shaft fracture and the evaluation of this effect with a different parameter.

This study aims to investigate the effects of different amounts of compression used in intramedullary nailing on the stress values of the fracture surface and time of the union process in tibia diaphy...

Use of Volar Locking Plate Versus Intramedullary Nailing for Fixation of Distal Radius Fractures: A Retrospective Analysis of Clinical and Radiographic Outcomes.

BACKGROUND The objective of this study was to evaluate clinical and radiographic outcomes of volar plate versus intramedullary nailing for fixation of distal radius fractures. MATERIAL AND METHODS Thi...

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.
