The main aim is to assess the effectiveness of introducing a standardized intervention program for treatment of fracture patients as measured by changes in the fracture rates and the morta...
Measurement of thrombogenic properties by TEG and MEA and observation of thrombotic events over 2 years in 220 patients with hip fracture.
Clavicle fractures in children are common. Typical treatment includes nonoperative treatment with a sling. Operative treatment is usually limited to open, unstable, fractures with either e...
This is a randomized, controlled; single-blind parallel group trial carried out with hip fracture patients, starting at 12 weeks post fracture. Patients were approached during their acute ...
1. To Compare overall rates of second hip fractures in both genders, 2. To determine the effect of hip fracture on proximal femoral volumetric bone mineral density (vBMD), bone str...
Hip fracture risk varies by geography and by levels of deprivation. We examined the effect of local area-level deprivation on hip fracture incidence across nine regions in England, using 14 years of h...
Traumatic fracture of the thoracolumbar junction (T10-L2) is the most common fracture of the spinal column. Due to the disruption of the entire vertebrae column, the fracture-dislocation of the thorac...
Surgical fracture treatment has undergone an extensive evolution in the past decades. In the early days achieving solid healing in anatomically reduced position was the primary and nearly exclusive go...
The surgical management of distal intra-articular comminuted fracture of the tibia (pilon fracture) is difficult because complications frequently develop. The minimally invasive plate osteosynthesis t...
Implantable fracture fixation devices attached to bone fragments with screws to bridge the fracture gap and shield the fracture site from stress as bone heals. (UMDNS, 1999)
Fracture in the proximal half of the shaft of the ulna, with dislocation of the head of the radius.
The act of regarding attentively and studying facts and occurrences, gathering data through analyzing, measuring, and drawing conclusions, with the purpose of applying the observed information to theoretical assumptions. Observation as a scientific method in the acquisition of knowledge began in classical antiquity; in modern science and medicine its greatest application is facilitated by modern technology. Observation is one of the components of the research process.
The use of metallic devices inserted into or through bone to hold a fracture in a set position and alignment while it heals.
Fracture of the lower end of the radius in which the lower fragment is displaced posteriorly.
Osteoporosis is a disease in which the bones become extremely porous, are subject to fracture, and heal slowly, occurring especially in women following menopause and often leading to curvature of the spine from vertebral collapse. Follow and track&n...
