A case of bilateral simultaneous traumatic intertrochanteric fracture

Location: http://www.ispub.com/journal/the_internet_journal_of_orthopedic_surgery/volume_10_number_2_4/article ...

In orthopedic traumatology, a unilateral intertrochanteric fracture is probably one of the commonest fractures in the elderly. The incidence of bilateral pathological intertrochanteric fracture is also not uncommon. In this case report, we are presenting a case of bilateral simultaneous traumatic displaced intertrochanteric fractures in a young patient. The patient...

Dynamic Hip Screw Failure: Should We Blame The Surgeon Or The Patient?

Location: http://www.ispub.com/ostia/index.php?xmlFilePath=journals/ijos/vol2n1/dhs.xml

Abstract Aims: To examine the roles of fracture stability, anatomical reduction and screw position on cut through failure of Dynamic Hip Screw (DHS) implants. Methods: This is a retrospective study of consecutive patients treated with a DHS implant following intertrochanteric fractures of the proximal femur. Fracture stability was assessed from fracture...

Intertrochanteric Hip Fractures eMedicine Orthopedics

Location: http://emedicine.medscape.com/article/1247210-overview

Author: Richard S Goodman, MD. 2006
An intertrochanteric hip fracture occurs between the greater trochanter, where the gluteus medius and minimus muscles (hip extensors and abductors) attach, and the lesser trochanter, where the iliopsoas muscle (hip flexor) attaches (Netter, 1987).

Is the rotation of the femoral head a potential initiation for cutting out Open Access

Location: http://www.biomedcentral.com/1471-2474/12/79/abstract

Since cut-out still remains one of the major clinical challenges in the field of osteoporotic proximal femur fractures, remarkable developments have been made in improving treatment concepts. However, the mechanics of these complications have not been investigated yet. We hypothesize using the experimental data and a theoretical model that a...

Outcomes of Gamma Nail Fixation for pertrochanteric fractures

Location: http://web.archive.org/web/20021220023450/http://www.orthonet.upmc.edu/TraumDiv/Ziran/Gamma.html

Archived 2003. UPMC. The introduction of the intramedullary hip screw (IMHS) was hailed as a solution for the treatment of complex intertrochanteric (IT) and subtrochanteric (ST) femur fractures. In fixation with the IMHS benefits of intramedullary shaft stabilization are combined with the advantages of sliding hip screw fixation. Fixation with...

Spot Check Intertrochanteric Fracture Treatment

Location: http://www.aaos.org/news/aaosnow/jan09/clinical2.asp

A recent article in the Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery found a ‚Äúdramatic change in surgeon preference‚ÄĚ from plate fixation to intramedullary (IM) nail fixation for the treatment of intertrochanteric fractures. What method do you use to treat intertrochanteric fractures and why?

Total hip arthroplasty following failed fixation of proximal hip fractures

Location: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2739465/

he purpose of this study was to evaluate the short-term functional outcome and complications of total hip arthroplasty (THA) following failed fixation of proximal hip fracture.
Conclusion: Total hip arthroplasty is an effective salvage procedure after failed osteosynthesis of hip fractures. Most patients have good pain relief and functional improvements inspite of...

Treatment of Intertrochanteric Nonunion of the Proximal Femur Using the S-ROM Prosthesis OrthoSuperSite

Location: http://www.orthosupersite.com/view.aspx?rid=25673

Nonunion is an uncommon yet devastating complication following intertrochanteric hip fracture, and few reports in the literature address this problem. This study examines the results of intertrochanteric nonunion treated with the uncemented S-ROM prosthesis in 10 patients. All patients demonstrated clinically significant pain relief and return to ambulation following hemiarthroplasty...
