ABSTRACT null null Objectives null : Fracture-related infection (FRI) is a feared complication with substantial clinical and economic consequences. The main objective of this study was to compare direct and indirect healthcare costs related to long bone fractures in patients with and without FRI and to assess its impact on the patient's quality of life (QoL). null null null Patients and methods null : Between January 2015 and March 2019, 175 patients with FRI were treated at the [Name omitted fo...

Abstract null null Introduction null Traumatic osteoarthritis of the ankle joint caused after malleolar fractures of the ankle and tibial plafond fractures are frequently observed in comparatively young and highly active patients. Since the ankle movement in these patients is in general, comparatively favorable, orthopedists may sometimes have difficulty in deciding on a treatment policy. In our department, when treating traumatic osteoarthritis patients having a movable range within their ankle...

Abstract null null Purpose null To establish the finite element model of T12 and L2 (T12-L2) pedicle screw fixation for severe L1 burst fracture, and quantitatively simulate and analyze the screw stress and vertebral displacement in different degrees of L1 posterior upper wall fracture (PUWF), and evaluate whether PUWF degree is a risk factor for fixation failure. null null null Methods null The data of 6 healthy volunteers were used to establish a finite element model of T12-L2 pedicle screw fi...

Abstract null null Blast injuries include the various types of internal and external trauma caused by the impact force of high-speed blast waves with multiple mechanisms involved. Thoracic blast exposure could induce neurotrauma as well, but effective therapies are lacking. Resveratrol is a polyphenol flavonoid secreted by plants and has been shown to provide cardiovascular protection and play anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidation and anti-cancer roles. However, the effects of resveratrol on thoraci...

Abstract null null Background null Most of the data on high grade Traumatic renal injuries (TRI) has come from centres which predominantly encounter blunt trauma. Blunt and penetrating mechanisms are not analogous, and it is imprudent to blindly extrapolate management strategies between the two groups. In addition, within the broad group of penetrating mechanisms of injury there are also major differences between gunshot wounds (GSW) and stab wounds (SW). The aim of this comparative study of GSW...
Abstract null null Background null Alcohol withdrawal syndrome (AWS) is an uncommon occurrence in trauma victims. However, the syndrome can cause a prolonged hospital stay. Therefore, the purpose of this study is to develop and validate the risk factors of AWS so that interventions can be applied to high-risk patients. null null null Methods null All adult trauma patients with an injury severity score of ≥9 and greater than one hospital day were included in the study. The Trauma Quality Improvem...

Abstract null null Purpose null Aim of this study was to determine the rate of low-grade infection in patients with primarily as aseptic categorized tibial shaft nonunion and lack of clinical signs of infection. null null null Methods null In a retrospective study between 2006 and 2013, all patients who underwent revision surgery for treatment of tibial shaft nonunion without clinical evidence of infection were assessed. Bacterial cultures harvested during nonunion revision, C-reactive protein (...
Abstract null null Background null Neck of femur fractures are common injuries in the elderly population and carry significant morbidity and mortality. The introduction of a Best Practice Tariff (BPT) in 2010 laid out the criteria for optimising hip fracture care. These outcomes are audited annually by the National Hip Fracture Database. Meeting all six key targets attracts a financial uplift for each patient; one of these criteria is for an operation within 36 hours of admission. null null null...

INTRODUCTION We compared the sliding distance of the lag screw, change in neck-shaft angle (NSA), and nonunion rates according to the anteromedial cortical support on anteroposterior (AP) and lateral view radiographs post intertrochanteric fracture reduction. MATERIAL AND METHODS In this systematic review and meta-analysis, MEDLINE, Embase, and Cochrane Library databases were searched systematically for studies published before September 26, 2020. We performed synthetic analyses of the amount of...

Abstract null null Introduction null Intravenous regional anesthesia is a well-established method of anesthesia in upper extremity surgery. In this study, we present a modification of the technique using a silicon ring tourniquet in 30 patients undergoing internal fixation for distal radius fractures. null null null Methods null A sterile silicone ring wrapped within a stockinette sleeve was applied, and a local anaesthetic solution (3mg/kg lidocaine 0,5%) was injected intravenously. After anest...
