Purpose: To review the 5-year outcomes of our modified mandibulotomy technique. Retrospective review of a tertiary level oral cancer center. Materials and Methods: During a 5-year period, 30 patients who had a uniform surgical technique consisting of a lower lip-splitting, modified stair-step...
- STATIC VERSUS DYNAMIC INTERLOCKING INTRAMEDULLARY NAILING IN FRACTURES SHAFT OF FEMUR. Khan, Irfan Aziz; Ahmad, Sajjad; Shah, Muhammad Ali; Ahmad, Shakeel; Shafiq, Muhammad; Shafaq, Shafiq Ahmad // Gomal Journal of Medical Sciences;Apr-Jun2015, Vol. 13 Issue 2, p104
Background: Fractures of shaft of femur are a major cause of morbidity and mortality. The objective of this study was to compare outcome of static and dynamic interlocking nailing in closed femoral shaft fractures. Material & Methods: This descriptive study was carried out at Department of...
- Preoperative classification assessment reliability and influence on the length of intertrochanteric fracture operations. Shen, Jing; Hu, FangKe; Zhang, LiHai; Tang, PeiFu; Bi, ZhengGang // International Orthopaedics;Apr2013, Vol. 37 Issue 4, p681
Purpose: The accuracy of intertrochanteric fracture classification is important; indeed, the patient outcomes are dependent on their classification. The aim of this study was to use the AO classification system to evaluate the variation in classification between X-ray and computed tomography...
- Prospective Study of Distal Radial Fractures Treated with an Intramedullary Nail. Nishiwaki, Masao; Tazaki, Kenichi; Shimizu, Hidenori; Ilyas, Asif M. // Journal of Bone & Joint Surgery, American Volume;8/3/2011, Vol. 93-A Issue 15, p1436
Background: Intramedullary nailing for the treatment of unstable distal radial fractures is reported to provide stable fixation with minimal soft-tissue complications, but there is a paucity of data documenting the results of this technique. The purpose of this study was to prospectively...
- Evaluation of the Effectiveness of the Angular Stable Locking System in Patients with Distal Tibial Fractures Treated with Intramedullary Nailing. Höntzsch, Dankward; Schaser, Klaus-Dieter; Hofmann, Gunther O.; Pohlemann, Tim; Hem, Einar Sturla; Rothenbach, Erik; Krettek, Christian; Attal, René // Journal of Bone & Joint Surgery, American Volume;11/19/2014, Vol. 96 Issue 22, p1889
Background: Angular stable locking of intramedullary nails has been shown to enhance fixation stability of tibial fractures in biomechanical and animal studies. The aim of our study was to assess whether use of the angular stable locking system or conventional locking resulted in earlier full...
