Degenerative changes at the knee and ankle related to malunion of tibial fractures

Location: http://www.jbjs.org.uk/cgi/reprint/78-B/5/722

We re-examined clinically and radiologically 88 patients with a fracture of the lower leg at a mean follow-up of 15 years. Forty-three fractures (49%) had healed with malalignment of at least 5°. More arthritis was found in the knee and ankle adjacent to the fracture than in the comparable joints...

Traumatic Pelvic Fractures

Location: http://www.nursingcenter.com/prodev/ce_article.asp?tid=660561

Pelvic fractures can be a big challenge in caring for the injured patient. Pelvic fractures are important as a cause for morbidity and mortality. The mortality can be 30% with unstable pelvic ring injuries, and 10–12% of this percentage alone is due to blood loss. Multiple complications can occur during...

Evaluation and management of supracondylar fractures in children

Location: http://www.uptodate.com/patients/content/topic.do?topicKey=~zQfmzji1xrnTWX4

Supracondylar fractures are the most common pediatric elbow fracture and carry significant potential for neurovascular compromise [1-4]. These fractures of the distal humerus are frequently problematic in terms of diagnosis, treatment, and complications [1]. Proper care requires appropriate assessment and prompt orthopedic care for those patients whose fractures pose the...

Conservative treatment for closed fifth small finger metacarpal neck fractures

Location: http://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/514909

Subcapital fractures of the fifth metacarpal bone, meaning fractures just below the knuckle of the little finger, account for approximately 20% of all hand fractures. Currently, there is no consensus concerning the optimal management of these fractures. Traditionally, treatment consists of closed reduction and external splinting in a neutral position...

Cartilage injuries in distal radial fractures

Location: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/12899554

Subchondral hematomas have been found with arthroscopy in one third of patients with dislocated distal radial fractures. The aim of the present, prospective study was to determine whether these hematomas might cause radiographic osteoarthrosis. We studied 41 patients (age 20-57 years, 22 women) with a dislocated distal radial fracture. At...

Plate Fixation of Midshaft Clavicle Fractures VuMedi

Location: http://www.vumedi.com/node/91627

Clavicle fractures are common in the adult patient. Classic treatment is nonoperative for midshaft fractures. But treatment options have recently been discussed controversially. In recent years, several studies demonstrated better results with operative treatment, especially for displaced fractures.
This video summarizes the current thinking on midshaft clavicle fractures and leads through...

Pediatric supracondylar fractures of the distal humerus

Location: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2682409/

Supracondylar fractures of the humerus are a common pediatric elbow injury that are historically associated with morbidity due to malunion, neurovascular complications, and compartment syndrome. True anteroposterior and lateral radiographs are essential not only for an accurate diagnosis, but also for creating a treatment plan for these injuries. A staging...

Fractures of the coracoid process

Location: http://www.jbjs.org.uk/cgi/reprint/77-B/3/425

We have reviewed 12 fractures of the coracoid process. In two of these patients the fracture extended into the body of the scapula and resulted in displacement of the glenoid. In some cases, there were associated acromioclavicular and glenohumeral dislocations or fractures of the clavicle and the acromion. Two patients...

Classification of proximal tibial fractures in children

Location: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2686808/

At our institution, 135 pediatric proximal tibia fractures were treated from 1997 to 2005. Fractures were classified into four groups according to the direction of force of injury: valgus, varus, extension, and flexion–avulsion. Each group was subdivided into metaphyseal and physeal type by fracture location and Salter–Harris classification. Also included...

Im Nailing Of Proximal Tibial Shaft Fractures

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

Wheeless IM naling of these fractures is technically difficult and often results in malalignment; surgeons without strong enthusiasm for nailing these fractures should consider lateral plating (for closed fractures)and external fixation for open fractures
