Intramedullary Femoral Reaming, Human Study

2014-08-27 03:16:54 | BioPortfolio


To what extent the cardiopulmonary and inflammatory response is affected by initial femoral intramedullary nailing in the already traumatized and inflammatory activated patient was analyzed in the present study with the attention to survey the additional burden of this operative treatment. The patients are monitored with a pulmonary catheter, and blood samples for coagulation, fibrinolysis, complement and cytokine response are withdrawn pre-, per- and postoperatively. The study is partly randomized 1)where delayed intramedullary nailing is compared with primary nailing of the femur, and 2) a new reaming technique (RIA) is compared with a standard reaming technique (TR).

Standard Reaming Versus Reaming/Irrigating/Aspirating for Intramedullary Nailing of Femoral Shaft Fractures

Reaming (enlarging of the bone canal) is commonly performed prior to the insertion of intramedullary nails for the fixation of long bone fractures. This study is designed to compare the un...

Randomized, Prospective Comparison of Two Femoral Reaming Systems

The purpose of this study is to compare the quantity of fat that is released into the venous system (blood) by reaming the femoral canal during intramedullary nailing of the femur using tw...

Comparison of Two Cementing Techniques of the Femoral Component in a Hip Prosthesis

The primary aim of the study is to compare migration of the cemented Corail stem representing polished surfaced versions of the femoral stem. Two different methods will be used for reaming...

Effects of Navigation Versus Conventional Total Knee Arthroplasty on the Levels of Inflammation Markers

Total knee arthroplasty (TKA) is a well-established modality for the treatment of advanced knee osteoarthritis with high satisfaction rate. However, the traditional cutting jigs for distal...

Intramedullary Fixation of Humerus Fractures Without Intramedullary Reaming

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.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Benign and malignant neoplasms which occur within the substance of the spinal cord (intramedullary neoplasms) or in the space between the dura and spinal cord (intradural extramedullary neoplasms). The majority of intramedullary spinal tumors are primary CNS neoplasms including ASTROCYTOMA; EPENDYMOMA; and LIPOMA. Intramedullary neoplasms are often associated with SYRINGOMYELIA. The most frequent histologic types of intradural-extramedullary tumors are MENINGIOMA and NEUROFIBROMA.

A groin hernia occurring inferior to the inguinal ligament and medial to the FEMORAL VEIN and FEMORAL ARTERY. The femoral hernia sac has a small neck but may enlarge considerably when it enters the subcutaneous tissue of the thigh. It is caused by defects in the ABDOMINAL WALL.

Procedure that involves the removal of infectious products from a root canal space through use of special instruments and fillings. This procedure is performed when root canal treatment fails.

Preparatory activities in ROOT CANAL THERAPY by partial or complete extirpation of diseased pulp, cleaning and sterilization of the empty canal, enlarging and shaping the canal to receive the sealing material. The cavity may be prepared by mechanical, sonic, chemical, or other means. (From Dorland, 28th ed, p1700)

Disease involving the femoral nerve. The femoral nerve may be injured by ISCHEMIA (e.g., in association with DIABETIC NEUROPATHIES), nerve compression, trauma, COLLAGEN DISEASES, and other disease processes. Clinical features include MUSCLE WEAKNESS or PARALYSIS of hip flexion and knee extension, ATROPHY of the QUADRICEPS MUSCLE, reduced or absent patellar reflex, and impaired sensation over the anterior and medial thigh.
