Supracondylar Femur Fractures eMedicine Orthopedics

Location: http://emedicine.medscape.com/article/1269699-overview

Author: Steven I Rabin, MD 2004
Supracondylar femur fractures require anatomically stable internal fixation for best results, which usually necessitates surgical treatment. These fractures usually occur in elderly patients with multiple comorbidities and osteoporotic bone; thus, a high rate of complications exists. Severely comminuted distal femur fractures are especially difficult fractures...

The Use of Locking Small Fragment Plates for Treatment of Humeral Shaft Fractures

Location: http://www.hwbf.org/ota/am/ota04/otapo/OTP04036.htm

Abstract OTA paper 2004
Conclusion/Significance: Plating of humeral shaft fractures has traditionally been performed with 4.5-mm dynamic compression plates, broad or narrow, with good results, and this method is treated as our control group in this study. The smaller 3.5-mm plate offers the theoretical advantage of more holes per unit length,...

2007 General Principles of Internal Fixation eMedicine Orthopedics

Location: http://emedicine.medscape.com/article/1269987-overview

Fractures have been treated with immobilization, traction, amputation, and internal fixation throughout history.

Lower lumbar fractures.
Fractures of L4 and L5 differ from those at the thoracolumbar junction. The differences involve anatomy, biomechanics, treatment options and classification. The rarity of these injuries is evident from their limited discussion in the literature. Treatment must be individualised and the recommendations for thoracolumbar trauma management cannot necessarily...
