There were two or three branches of the supraclavicular nerve crossing the clavicle 97% of the time and a wide variability of the location of these branches outside the safe zones.
There are safe zones within 2.7 cm of the sternoclavicular joint and 1.9 cm of the acromioclavicular joint. Between...

Here, we have made an attempt to delineate various incisions for exposing different bones & joints of lower limb along with important anatomical landmarks to be taken care while...
The subject of acetabular fracture surgery has been dealt with at length in the literature.
Almost forty years after the first publications by Robert Judet and Emile Letournel, much has been written on either side of the Atlantic; however, there is nothing new in the New World or the Old.
Difficult acetabular fractures with anterior displacement in which access to the entire anterior column is required.
This approach allows access to the anterior column as far as the symphysis and includes the quadrilateral plate. Most both-column fractures can also be managed through this approach, but only if the posterior fragment is...
Exposure of the anterior or lateral lumbar via the retroperitoneal approach easily causes injuries to the lumbar plexus. Lumbar plexus injuries which occur during anterior or transpsoas lumbar spine exposure and placement of instruments have been reported. This study aims is to provide more anatomical data and surgical landmarks in...
- with plate fixation of the humerus, the anterior approach is preferred for proximal and mid-diaphyseal frx
w/ application of plate to anterolateral aspect of the humerus (see humeral shaft fractures);
Illustrated notes on indications and alternatives, positioning, instruments, superficial and deep dissection, transection of subscapularis, capsulotomy & distal exposure

- Smith Petersen improved & revived the anterior iliofemoral approach;
- entire ilium and hip joint can be reached thru iliac part of incision;
- with this approach there is a need for extensive detachment of tendinous insertions & retraction of muscle, with
- major problems with the Watson Jones technique are dealing w/ gluteus medius & minimus, which lie over anteior
capsule and must be damaged or cut to obtain adequate exposure;
- original Charnely technique...
- most often used for anterior shoulder reconstructions;
- beach chair w/ full access to posterior aspect of shoulder;
- holding shoulder in flexion, will relax shoulder & facilitate exposure;
- consider the Mconnel...
Periacetabular osteotomy is the treatment of choice in young adults with hip dysplasia. Patient morbidity and surgical outcome may depend on the choice of surgical approach. We compared the outcome of a new minimally invasive approach to that of the frequently used â€śclassicâ€ť ilioinguinal approach.
Comparison of the minimally invasive and...
The direct anterior approach is one of the minimally invasive techniques used in hip replacement surgery. Continuing orthopaedic experience suggests that this procedure may offer several advantages over the more traditional surgical approaches to hip replacement.1
Traditional hip replacement techniques involve operating from the side (lateral) or the back (posterior) of...
The extended iliofemoral approach exposes the entire lateral innominate bone, by posterior reflection of the abductors, and reflection of short external rotators. It can be extended anteriorly into the first iliac window of the ilioinguinal incision.
The extended iliofemoral approach involves significant stripping of the bone, is associated with heterotopic bone...
