- A Cadaver Study Revisiting the Original Methodology of Lauge-Hansen and a Commentary on Modern Usage. Kwon, John Y.; Gitajn, Ida Leah; Walton, Phillip; Miller, Timothy J.; Appleton, Paul; Rodriguez, Edward K. // Journal of Bone & Joint Surgery, American Volume;4/1/2015, Vol. 97 Issue 7, p604
Background: The study by Lauge-Hansen published in the Archives of Surgery in 1950 still stands as the seminal work for our understanding of the pathomechanics of ankle fractures. The purpose of the present study was to recreate Lauge- Hansen's experiments for the supination-external rotation...
- EXTERNAL PIN FIXATION WITH EARLY FLAP COVERAGE FOR OPEN TIBIAL FRACTURES WITH SOFT TISSUE LOSS. Shamsuzzama, Md.; Islam, Md. Anowarul; Amanullah, Shah Mohammad // Journal of Medicine;Jan2010, Vol. 11 Issue 1, p28
Meaningful data on the management of open tibial fractures cannot be obtained unless one categorizes the injury according to fracture type, degree of soft tissue loss and the velocity of the injury. Treatment by converting the type III injury to a type II injury with well vascularized soft...
- medial geniculate body. // Taber's Cyclopedic Medical Dictionary (2009);2009, Issue 21, p1419
A definition of the medical term "medial geniculate body" which refers to a body that lies in the posterior part of the dorsal thalamus is presented.
- Fixation of ankle fragility fractures by tibiotalocalcaneal nail. Amirfeyz, Rouin; Bacon, Andrew; Ling, Jeff; Blom, Ashley; Hepple, Steve; Winson, Ian; Harries, William // Archives of Orthopaedic & Trauma Surgery;Apr2008, Vol. 128 Issue 4, p423
Fragility fractures of the ankle are difficult to treat by conventional fixation due to poor bone quality, compromised soft tissues, and inherent instability. Conservative management of these patients also has its problems. We retrospectively reviewed 13 patients who underwent intramedullary...
- Distal tibial fracture post syndesmotic screw removal: an adverse complication. Citak, Mustafa; Backhaus, Manuel; Muhr, Gert; Kälicke, Thomas // Archives of Orthopaedic & Trauma Surgery;Oct2011, Vol. 131 Issue 10, p1405
Fractures of the ankle are common injuries. Some ankle fractures have an associated injury to the syndesmosis, necessitating fixation with one or more screws. Generally, the overall outcome post ankle fracture is good. However, several complications have also been described. The current authors...
- Management of simple and complex ankle fractures. Cooper, J. // Trauma;Jul2000, Vol. 2 Issue 3, p199
Ankle fractures constitute a considerable part of the trauma surgeon's workload. Although many injuries are straightforward, a high proportion merit surgical intervention. Decision-making depends on recognition of the fracture pattern and its associated ligament injuries. An understanding of the...
- A case of a twisted ankle. Loudon, I.S.L.; Harrold, A.J. // British Medical Journal;5/14/1977, Vol. 1 Issue 6071, p1260
Presents case of 40-year-old patient with a twisted ankle; Referral of patient for radiography; Application of elastoplast strapping; Treatment of the twisted ankle.
- Distal Tibial Fatigue Fracture Secondary to a Retained Syndesmotic Screw. Sewecke, Jeffrey J.; Schmidt, Gary L.; Sotereanos, Nicholas G. // Orthopedics;Mar2006, Vol. 29 Issue 3, p268
Presents a case of a retained syndesmotic screw causing a distal tibial fatigue fracture. Advantage of syndesmotic screw placement technique for the treatment of ankle fractures; Medical history of the patient studied; Treatment received.
- Medial rotatory dislocation of the ankle without fracture. Rajasekhar, C.; Das, S. // European Journal of Orthopaedic Surgery & Traumatology;Sep2004, Vol. 14 Issue 3, p199
A case of closed medial dislocation of the ankle without any associated fracture in a 36 year old man is reported. He was treated by closed reduction under intravenous sedation and plaster application. Two years after injury patient is asymptomatic and had returned to full activities. This case...
