In recent years the increase of interest for surgery of the elbow has fostered the development of new and modified triceps sparing approaches. Olecranon osteotomy is a widely accepted method especially for open reduction and internal fixation of displaced intra-articular fractures because it provides excellent exposure of the joint surfaces. Due to several reports describing numerous complications, the enthusiasm for this procedure is currently limited. Several intra-articular and extra-articular techniques for refixation of the olecranon have been developed to limit these complications and good results have been obtained. This paper describes various techniques, analyzes advantages and disadvantages and shows alternative ways and solutions for different indications.

    Various materials are used to fill osteotomy defects created in the medial opening wedge high tibial osteotomy (MOWHTO). Our hypothesis was that a bone allograft would provide the osteotomy site bone healing within the expected time. We performed the MOWHTO using a cancellous bone allograft in...

    The aim of this study was to establish the influence of the design of the sagittal split ramus osteotomy (SSRO) on stress distribution on the osteosynthesis in a photoelastic resin model. Two polyurethane hemimandibles were used to perform the osteotomies, tilted in the lateral sector of the...

    In contrast to fracture fixation, when performing an osteotomy the surgeon is able to plan preoperatively. The resulting fixation and compression of the bone fragments are the most important points. A stable osteosynthesis should prevent dislocation of bone fragments and improve bone healing....

    This study evaluated the biomechanical use of cortical allografts preserved in honey for the stabilization of transverse osteotomy of ilium in dogs, as well as the use of wire hemicerclage alone against the bending forces. Thirteen canine were tested bilaterally, where one side was stabilized...

    Metacarpal synostosis is a rare congenital hand malformation requiring only occasionally a surgical correction. However in case of divergent epiphyses there is a progressive accentuation of the deformity. In the "Y" type of synostosis between fourth and fifth metacarpals, the authors propose a...
