Closed Reduction of Distal Radius Fractures

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

Closed reduction & immobilization in plaster cast remains accepted method of treatment for majority of stable distal radius fractures;
- unstable fractures will often lose reduction in the cast and will slip back to the pre-reduction position;
- patients should be examined for carpal tunnel symptoms before and after reduction;
- carpal...

Current Treatment Options for Pediatric Femur Fractures

Location: http://www.uphs.upenn.edu/ortho/oj/1998/oj11sp98p27.html

Historically, the vast majority of femur fractures in children have been treated with casting alone, or with traction followed by casting when there is a risk of excessive shortening. These methods have been very successful, although malunion and limb length inequality continue to occur in a small percentage of children....

Plate fixation or intramedullary fixation of humeral shaft fractures

Location: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2895341/

Conclusions Our meta-analysis suggests stastistically insignificant differences between plates and nails in the treatment of humeral shaft fractures. Small sample sizes, study heterogeneity, and methodological limitations argue strongly for a definitive, large trial. We recommend that this trial should be a randomized controlled trial with appropriate allocation of patients and...

2010 Interventions for treating proximal humeral fractures in adults

Location: http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/o/cochrane/clsysrev/articles/CD000434/frame.html

Authors' conclusions
Only tentative conclusions can be drawn from the available evidence, which is insufficient to inform many of the decisions required in contemporary fracture management. Early physiotherapy, without immobilisation, may be sufficient for some types of undisplaced fractures. It is unclear whether operative intervention, even for specific fracture types, will...
