Tension Band Wiring popular

Location: http://www.hwbf.org/ota/bfc/goulet/exp.htm

The tension band concept was introduced to orthopedics by Pauwels in the 1930's and was applied to internal fixation of eccentrically loaded bone. The concept had been around in engineering circles for a long time.

Augmentation of tibial plateau fractures with trabecular metal

Location: http://www.josr-online.com/content/4/1/37

Background Restoration and maintenance of the plateau surface are the key points in the treatment of tibial plateau fractures. Any deformity of the articular surface jeopardizes the future of the knee by causing osteoarthritis and axis deviation. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effect of Trabecular Metal (porous...

Hardware removal is always more difficult than expected especially in children

Location: http://www.orthosupersite.com/view.asp?rID=16639

By Douglas W. Jackson, MD ORTHOPEDICS TODAY 2006; 26:68 May 2006 The indications for “hardware removal” have often seemed somewhat subjective. There are those obvious cases where it presents mechanical symptoms or removal is necessary for another procedure to be done. In addition, surgeons often underestimate the time necessary for the removal and...

Anatomical Considerations:
- osseous anatomy of proximal femur dictates where internal fixation device should be placed for maximum purchase in femoral head;
- maximum bone density is found in the area where compression & tension trabeculae coalesce in the center of the head;

Outcome errors are not necessary for learning orthopedic bone drilling

Location: http://www.cma.ca/multimedia/staticContent/HTML/N0/l2/cjs/vol-52/issue-2/pdf/pg98.pdf

Conclusion: When learning bicortical bone drilling, feedback related to plunging is not necessary to achieve a competent level of performance. In addition, although external feedback facilitates the achievement of better outcomes, it does not improve learning. It is suggested that to minimize plunging, trainees should learn how to optimize their...

Reconstruction- Double blade plating recalcitrant metacarpal nonunion

Location: http://www.e-hand.com/img/12853.htm

Metacarpal fractures are common injuries. Metacarpal fracture nonunions are uncommon because of the support provided by adjacent metacarpals, but can be a difficult problem following high energy trauma. This series of pictures document the difficulty of treating a middle metacarpal nonunion following a gunshot injury.

Theory of Dynamic Compression Plating Wheeless

Location: http://www.wheelessonline.com/ortho/theory_of_dynamic_compression_plates

compression is appied by eccentric insertion of screws;
- slot for compression has a sloping surface at one end;
- when the spherical head of the screw impinges on this surface, plate moves ...
