The article focuses on several studies related to orthopaedics. In one study, 300 patients with hip fractures and anemia were compared with patients treated with and without iron supplementation. Another study correlates the degree of symphysis pubis diastasis with the degree of pelvic ligament injury. Another focuses on impact of suprapatellar, semi-extended intramedullary tibial nailing.
