  1. Modified Ilizarov technique for infected nonunion of the femur: the principle of distraction-compression osteogenesis.

    Journal of orthopaedic surgery (Hong Kong) 14(3):265 (2006) PMID 17200527

    PURPOSE. To evaluate the treatment outcome of the modified Ilizarov technique in infected nonunion of the femur. METHODS. Between 1989 and 2002, records of 20 patients with infected nonunion of the femur treated with the modified Ilizarov technique were retrospectively reviewed. The modified Ilizaro...
  2. Prevention of posttraumatic hypoxaemia in isolated lower limb long bone fractures with a minimal prophylactic dose of corticosteroids.

    Injury 35(3):309 (2004) PMID 15124801

    I open, femoral and tibial fractures. On admission, the patients were randomly allocated either to a control group given placebo (40 patients) or to a methylprednisolone-treated group (47 patients). A total dose of 6 mg/kg BW methylprednisolone (SoluMedrol, Upjohn) was administered intravenously, di...
  3. Erectile dysfunction induced by orthopedic trauma managed with a fracture table: a case report and review of the literature.

    Journal of Trauma 47(1):183 (1999) PMID 10421212

  4. Aneurysm-induced intertrochanteric bone loss reconstructed by a vascularized iliac graft: case report.

    Journal of Trauma 46(5):944 (1999) PMID 10338418

  5. Transient peroneal nerve palsies from injuries placed in traction splints.

    The American Journal of Emergency Medicine 17(2):160 (1999) PMID 10102318

    Two patients thought to have distal femur fractures presented to the emergency department (ED) of a level 1 trauma center with traction splints applied to their lower extremities. Both patients had varying degrees of peroneal nerve palsies. Neither patient sustained a fracture, but both had a latera...
  6. The merit of sintered PDLLA/TCP composites in management of bone fracture internal fixation.

    Artificial Organs 23(2):186 (1999) PMID 10027889

    Polyesters based on lactic acid have been reported in terms of safety and biodegradation in human beings for 2 decades. The greatest advantage of such material is its degradation conducted only by hydrolysis, whereby the ester backbones are supposed to be unchained in the aqueous condition. The fina...
  7. Ipsilateral femoral neck and shaft fractures.

    Journal of the American Academy of Orthopaedic ... 7(1):76 (1999) PMID 10068284

  8. Management of femoral diaphyseal infected nonunion with antibiotic beads local therapy, external skeletal fixation, and staged bone grafting...

    Journal of Trauma 46(1):97 (1999) PMID 9932690

    Wound healing and bone union were achieved in all 15 cases. The duration of external fixation of these patients ranged from 7 to 15 months, with an average of 9 months. Minor pin-track infection was seen in seven patients. Postoperative infection after the second-stage bone grafting occurred in thre...
  9. The use of femoral intramedullary nailing as an interim or salvage technique during complicated total hip replacement.

    The Journal of Arthroplasty 13(4):467 (1998) PMID 9645530

    When performing a revision total hip replacement complicated by infection, severe osteolysis, comminuted periprosthetic fracture, and/or extensive bone loss, a single-stage procedure may not be feasible. This study reports four cases of femoral intramedullary nailing as an interim or salvage techniq...
  10. Antegrade nailing for fractures of the distal femur.

    Clinical Orthopaedics and Related Research (350):74 (1998) PMID 9602803

    Thirty-five fractures of the distal femur were treated by antegrade intramedullary nailing. All of the fractures were treated by a closed technique. In the cases in which there was extension of the fracture to the knee joint, the fracture initially was stabilized with percutaneous lag screws. Four p...
