A multi-site randomized controlled trial where patients are allocated to operative treatment or conservative treatment of fractures of the neck of the 5th metacarpal bone. The study goal is to identify which degree of angular displacement in the fracture that requires operative intervention.
This is a prospective, randomized, multi-center pilot study of isolated, displaced neck fractures of the fifth metacarpal. The patients are randomly assigned to osteosynthesis with antegrade intramedullary splinting or conservative treatment.
There is a lack of strong evidence guiding the treatment of non-thumb isolated closed metacarpal shaft fractures towards operative fixation versus conservative management. Surgical approach is largely decided by surgeon preference/skill, qualities of fracture, and extent of injury. Previous studies have shown that many metacarpal fractures can be treated non-operatively, with outcomes being as good as or better than those treated with surgery. Surgery using plates can often cau...
Spiral metacarpal fractures (metacarpal II-V) can be treated conservatively or with operation. With minimal displacement this fracture is usually treated with immobilisation or early mobilisation. With appreciable displacement especially any malrotation the patient usually is treated with an operation. This usually includes an open reduction of the fracture and fixation with plates and screws or just screws. Even if this is an standard procedure both mild and severe complicatio...
Rotational deformity or malunion causes the most significant functional deficit in these common fractures. The evaluation of the rotation may be performed with the metacarpophalangeal joints flexed although postoperative swelling may not enable this examination with flexion of the fingers. Furthermore, it has been shown that swelling may cause rotation of the digit itself. The investigators propose that the swelling may cause a mistake in the estimation of rotation, during surg...
Randomized controlled trial comparing a technique for buried intramedullary k-wire fixation to plate and screw fixation for unstable extra-articular metacarpal fractures.
This study aims to compare the functional results of two different therapeutic approaches in patients that present with a 5th metacarpal neck fracture. Patients will be randomly assigned to be treated with either syndactyly or closed reduction plus inmovilization.
The purpose of this study is to determine if the transthecal metacarpal block is superior to the traditional digital block for regional digital anesthesia in children.
In trauma surgery and hand surgery treatment strategies of none healing bone fractures aim at replacing pseudarthrosis by well vascularized bone and improving microcirculation. Although previous studies indicate that remote ischemic preconditioning (RIPC) can accelerate bone healing in case of non-union, only a few studies focused on the elucidation of its mechanisms of action. Therefore, the aim of this study is to evaluate the microcirculatory effects of remote ischemic preco...
The term Ligamentotaxis is used to define the method of distal traction to realign joint surfaces and reduce articular fragments after complex fractures. Traction and mobilization can be combined to help deliver the best outcome. This study will present a dynamic traction orthosis design with the aim that it is easy-to-make, non-invasive, low-profile and allow for ease in performing active and passive exercises. The clinical effectiveness of this method will be examined by an...
Prospective observational study of implanted patients with a new orthopaedic implant: the Touch trapezo-metacarpal prosthesis
Femur fractures are a common injury in the Pediatric population. Despite their high incidence little do we know about the long term implications on the bones' length. Our main goal is to clarify this obscure issue by assessing the femoral and tibial length as determined by the fractures, measuring techniques and treatment modalities
The fracture of the humeral diaphysis is a condition that represents 2% of all fractures. The conservative treatment of diaphyseal fractures of the humerus has long been considered the only option and the surgical treatment was primarily reserved for displaced fractures with no contact of bone ends. However, for a few years there has been an upsurge of indications for the surgical treatment of diaphyseal fractures. The purpose of this study is to compare the functional outcome...
Vertebroplasty is a procedure used to stabilize broken vertebrae, the bones that form the spine. This study will evaluate the effectiveness of vertebroplasty for the treatment of fractures due to osteoporosis.
Open fractures are frequently encountered in orthopaedics. Treatment usually calls for a formal, operative procedure in which the bone is exposed, foreign tissue is debrided and the wound is irrigated. While this is the current standard of care, not all open fractures are equal. In retrospective studies, centers are reporting less aggressive operative management for open fractures may result in equal results without the time and expense of the operative theater. The investi...
The primary objective of this study is to investigate the effectiveness of local antibiotic versus placebo in the prevention of infections in open fractures. The study will assess whether local treatment of open fractures with the antibiotic tobramycin (in addition to standard systemic antibiotics) will decrease the risk and rate of infection, and rate of re-operation. This will be studied using a randomized controlled clinical trial design in adult population of age 18-70 year...
Hip fractures are usually classified according to their X-ray as subcapital, pertrochanteric. We examine hip fractures with ultrasound in order to characterize the fractures with several parameters.
This study is set to evaluate a proposed standard for the treatment of proximal humerus fractures
Most fractures of the cervical spine are considered stable and treated with a rigid cervical collar. However no studies have to date been published addressing the length of treatment. There seems to be a significant dissimilarity between hospitals within and between countries with the length of collar treatment varying from 6 to 12 weeks. At the neurosurgical department at Oslo University Hospital, Ullevål the standard length of treatment for a stable cervical fracture is 12 w...
There is a high incidence of re-operations after surgery for ankle fractures. According to the Danish Fracture Database (DFDB) the re-operation rate, excluding hardware removal, is almost 10%. We are conducting a study on the efficacy of an evidence based algorithm for the treatment of ankle fractures.
The purpose of this research is to compare the outcomes of surgical stabilization and conservative treatment in patients with isolated minor rib fractures.
The purpose of this study is to compare the safety and effectiveness of surgical versus conservative management of type II odontoid fractures among patients > 64 years of age. Of secondary interest is to determine if there are differences in outcomes between anterior screw fixation and posterior fusion of these fractures.
The purpose of the study is to compare functional outcomes and recovery following surgical and non surgical treatment of potentially unstable , isolated fibula fractures. Secondary objectives are to compare the re-operation rate, time to union and complications between the two treatment groups. The primary research questions: 1. Does surgery provide a better functional outcome compared to non operative treatment of undisplaced, unstable fractures? 2. D...
From April ,2014 to April 2015,31 patients with fractures of the proximal humerus were treated in our hospital. According to anatomic neck fractures (ANF) and surgical neck fractures (SNF), we divided the patients into two groups. All the patients were followed at least 1 year.
The number of osteoporotic fractures, among which the fractures of the lower extremity of the radius (16 % of fractures seen in emergencies) is going to increase. Several surgical techniques are described in particular locking plates and intrafocal pinning techniques. The aim of the study is to compare (X-ray assessments and functional outcome) these two types of treatment by using a prospective, randomised multicentric analysis.
