Iatrogenic syndesmosis malreduction via clamp and screw placement.
Posterolateral approach for plating of tibial plateau fractures and the risk of injury to the anterior tibial vessels.
Intentional deformation and closure of soft tissue defect in open tibial fractures with a taylor spatial frame-a simple technique.
We describe a way of using Taylor spatial frames (TSFs) for acute deformation of Gustilo IIIB tibial fractures and infected tibial nonunions to close the soft tissue defects and to gradually restore anatomical alignment. We use the Direct Scheduler Utility module of the web-based software for TSFs t...
The pilon map: fracture lines and comminution zones in OTA/AO type 43C3 pilon fractures.
The purpose of this investigation is to define the location and frequency of tibia pilon fracture lines and impaction injury for the most severe variety (OTA/AO type 43C3). Using axial computed tomography scan images, 38 consecutive OTA/AO type 43C3 fractures treated by a single surgeon were analyze...
Combined pelvic ring disruption and acetabular fracture: associated injury patterns in 40 patients.
I academic medical center. Between 1997 and 2001, 854 pelvic ring disruptions and 457 acetabular fractures were evaluated. Forty patients sustained combined injuries. None. Fracture patterns, Injury Severity Scores, and mortality rates. Our series of combined injuries included 5% posterior wall frac...
High success rate for augmentation compression plating leaving the nail in situ for aseptic diaphyseal tibial nonunions.
: To evaluate adjunctive compression plating leaving the previously unreamed inserted intramedullary nail (URIMN) in situ for treating a resultant diaphyseal tibial nonunion. : Retrospective study. : Level 1 trauma center (University Hospital). : Patients treated by URIMN for diaphyseal tibial fract...
Physiological challenges of bone repair.
Bone healing after fracture occurs in a well-organized manner and involves a multitude of cell types, inflammatory cytokines, growth factors, prostaglandins, and certain vitamins. Some of the means by which alterations in these essential components affect bone repair are understood, whereas others s...
Geriatric trauma: demographics, injuries, and mortality.
To identify injuries that elderly sustain during high-energy trauma and determine which are associated with mortality. Retrospective review of prospectively collected database. Academic trauma center. Patients selected from database of all trauma admissions from January 2004 through June 2009. Study...
Development and validation of an instrument to predict functional recovery in tibial fracture patients: the Somatic Pre-Occupation and Copin...
We developed and validated an instrument designed to capture the impact of patients' beliefs on functional recovery from injury: the Somatic Pre-Occupation and Coping (SPOC) questionnaire. At 6-weeks postsurgical fixation, we administered the SPOC questionnaire to 359 consecutive patients with opera...
