Lateral Humeral Condyle Fracture eMedicine Orthopedics

Location: http://emedicine.medscape.com/article/1231199-overview

In 1883, Stimson first described the fracture patterns in lateral condyle fractures in his book Treatise on Fractures. He described the fracture as beginning in the lateral metaphysis proximal to the condyle, coursing distally, and exiting through the articular surface through the medial trochlear notch or through the capitellotrochlear groove....

Coronoid Fracture eMedicine Orthopedics

Location: http://www.emedicine.com/orthoped/topic63.htm

Fractures of the coronoid rarely occur in isolation. They usually occur in combination with a radial head fracture, a dislocation of the elbow, or both (terrible triad of the elbow). Large coronoid fractures often are associated with persistent elbow instability even after reduction of the dislocation; recently the increasing trend...

2009 Future Fracture Risk in a Nationwide Cohort Study of Twins

Location: http://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/587451

Abstract The principal causal components of an osteoporotic fracture are a fall and weakened bone strength. While bone quality measures have been frequently studied, the ability of simple measures of impaired balance to predict fracture risk has received less attention. Computer-assisted telephone interviews were conducted between 1998 and 2000 among 24,598...

Osteogenesis Imperfecta Type I OMIM

Location: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/dispomim.cgi?id=166200

CLINICAL FEATURES Osteogenesis imperfecta (see Byers, 1993) is characterized chiefly by multiple bone fractures, usually resulting from minimal trauma. Affected individuals have blue sclerae, normal teeth, and normal or near-normal stature (for growth curves, see Vetter et al., 1992). Fractures are rare in the neonatal period; fracture tendency is constant...

Spinal Dislocations eMedicine Orthopedics

Location: http://www.emedicine.com/Orthoped/topic441.htm

The unique anatomy of the thoracolumbar junction predisposes this level of the spinal column to dislocation fractures. As the thoracic spine loses its structural rigidity with floating ribs at T11 and T12, the orientation of the facet joints also changes from a more frontal projection to oblique and then sagittal...

Distal Radius Fractures eMedicine Radiology

Location: http://www.medscape.com/article/398406-overview

The distal radial fracture is the most common forearm fracture. It is usually caused by a fall onto an outstretched hand (FOOSH). It can also result from direct impact or axial forces. The classification of these fractures is based on distal radial angulation and displacement, intra-articular or extra-articular involvement, and...

Segond fractures of the lateral tibial condyle

Location: http://www.jbjs.org.uk/cgi/reprint/69-B/4/613

Avulsion of a bony fragment from a point behind Gerdy's tubercle was originally described in cadaver experiments before the discovery of x-rays (Segond 1879). Since that time reports of this fracture in clinical practice have been scarce. Most authors have stressed the constant site and appearance of the avulsed tibial fragment (Dietz,...
