OBJECTIVE: There are controversial discussions about the operative treatment of displaced midshaft fractures of the clavicle. While some authors still prefer a conservative treatment, latest studies showed in many cases better results for operatively treated fractures compared with the conservative. The functional outcome and complications after plate and screw fixation of dislocated midshaft fractures of the clavicle should be analyzed and compared to international studies. PATIENTS AND METHODS...

INTRODUCTION: After surgery of proximal humerus fractures complications such as failure of osteosynthesis with bad functional outcome are often observed. We predict, that the treatment with an angular stable plate will reduce the risk of secondary dislocation. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Eleven patients with displaced proximal humerus fractures, treated with the proximal humeral internal locking system plate (PHILOS, Synthes), including two patients who are treated for non-union of an earlier fracture...

The purpose of this article is to evaluate the humeral locking nail in the treatment of humeral shaft fractures. First disappointing experiences with reamed locking nails led at least to some controversy. A review of the literature on treatment of humeral fractures showed that he majority of (clinical) information was contained in retrospective reviews; only three prospective or randomized studies were identified. Furthermore the results are not consistent. The criticism based on experiences wit...

INTRODUCTION: Incidence of ankle fractures in the elderly population increased for the last years. Osteoporosis, compromised soft tissue conditions, vascular supply, and systemic diseases enhance the high demands on fracture management. Here, early results of ankle fracture fixation with transtibiocalcaneal arthrodesis in elderly patients are reported. PATIENT AND METHODS: Five patients with an unstable ankle fracture were included into this prospective study. All of them underwent closed reduct...

Radial head fractures are common injuries which can be managed conservatively in the absence of instability or mechanical block at the elbow. We report a case of radial head and neck fracture which uniquely incorporates two rare complications: posterior interosseous nerve (PIN) palsy, and locking of the proximal radio-ulnar joint. The causative mechanisms are described with review of the relevant literature.

PURPOSE: The occurence of complications after reamed and unreamed nailing of the tibia shaft should be analyzed to raise the awareness of quality and of occuring complications. In addition our own results should be compared to international studies in order to be able to recommend a better recommendation of treatment. MATERIAL AND METHODS: In between January 1995 and December 2001 110 patients suffering from tibia shaft fractures (67 male, 43 female, average age 40.7 years) were treated with tib...

This study was a retrospective review to determine the actual results of intramedullary nailing for femur shaft fractures in a trauma hospital. Of 178 consecutive femurs treated with intramedullary nails, 128 fractures could be evaluated at 6 mo. Most fractures were type A. All 128 cases were treated with static interlocking nail. There were 14 (11 %) fractures that did not heal. 50 % of the open fractures and 25 % of the type C fractures did not heal. Opening a fracture to improve reduction was...

Today various systems for intramedullary nailing are available; they differ in the entry point or in the implantation technique. In spite of competing methods such as, e. g., plate osteosynthesis, in many cases intramedullary nailing represents the best method for the management of simple diaphyseal fractures of the long hollow bones. In the case of distal or proximal fractures the indication must be made according to the fracture type, the injury pattern and the patient's previous history. An i...

The popular understanding of the mechanism which creates pilon fractures has been axial loading. The purpose of this project was to study the biomechanics of pilon fractures using contemporary mechanical testing in a cadaveric model. We attempted to reproduce pilon fractures in nine ankles using a drop-tower apparatus and measuring the force each foot met on impact. The position of the foot during impact and the height from which the foot was dropped was changed for each test. Limbs were radiogr...

An X-ray examination is a basic and final technique in the diagnostics of most elbow region fractures. Coronoid fractures are complicated injuries and need to be carefully evaluated before deciding on the most appropriate course of treatment. In these fractures the identification and location of the broken fragments and their origin create significant difficulties. The main goal of this paper is an evaluation of the usefulness of spiral CT and 3D reconstruction techniques in the diagnostics of c...
