OBJECTIVES: The objectives of the study were to introduce a circumferential bone graft around an absorbable gelatin sponge core using an induced membrane technique, to assess its ability to reduce the required amount of graft and to maintain the bone graft, and to evaluate the clinical outcomes in the management of critical-size bone defects. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Circumferential bone grafting using a staged induced membrane technique for managing critical-size bone defects was performed in 21 patients...

INTRODUCTION: Information about injuries and its differences in Cliff Diving (CD) and Splash Diving (SD) are unknown. It was the aim to analyse (1) injury rates, patterns and causes; (2) differences (in injuries) between both disciplines; and to (3) identify targets for future injury prevention interventions. METHODS: From April to November 2013, 81 cliff and 51 splash divers were prospectively surveyed with an encrypted, monthly e-mail-based questionnaire. RESULTS: During a total of 7857h diving with an average diving height of 13 (±7)m, an overall injury rate of 7...

INTRODUCTION: Higher transfusion ratios of plasma to packed red blood cells (PRBC) and platelets (PLT) to PRBC have been shown to be associated with decreased mortality in major trauma patients. However, little is known about the effect of transfusion ratios on mortality in patients with isolated severe traumatic brain injury (TBI). The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of transfusion ratios on mortality in patients with isolated severe blunt TBI. We hypothesized that higher transfusion ratios of plasma to PRBC and PLT to PRBC are associated with a lower mortality rate in these patients...

STUDY DESIGN: Burst fractures not associated with any neurological deficits are frequent but not therapeutic agreement on their management is available to date. This case-control study was conducted to try to help guide therapeutic decision in the treatment of such fractures. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This case-control study includes consecutive retrospective evaluation of 25 case-patients treated by posterior short-segment fixation associated with kyphoplasty (SFK) in the treatment of A3 thoracolumbar unstable fractures, as compared to a control-group composed of 82 patients treated by long-segment (LF) pedicle screws...

PURPOSE: Information on the incidence of acetabular fractures of the pelvis is limited. Epidemiological data is often based on specific trauma registers, individual trauma centres or on trends of all pelvic fractures grouped together. The primary aim of this study was to determine the incidence and trends of hospital-treated acetabular fractures in the Finnish population from 1997 to 2014. The secondary aim was to assess the trauma mechanisms involved. METHODS: The Finnish National Hospital Discharge Register collects inpatient data from all public and private medical institutions in Finland and covers the entire Finnish population of 5...

INTRODUCTION: The use of virtual fracture clinics (VFCs) and home management protocols is increasing. The main aim of this research is to determine whether a paediatric home management programme and VFC can be used safely to manage a range of suitable fractures in children. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Protocols for the home management of stable paediatric fractures were designed by two consultant paediatric orthopaedic surgeons. These were for children between the ages of 18 months and 15 years 364 days...

INTRODUCTION: Autologous Chondrocyte Implantation (ACI) has been the first technique in reconstruction of a valid articular surface. The aim of this study was to evaluate clinical results of this technique at an average follow up of 162±27months (range 88-208) in a group of patients who underwent ACI. MATERIALS AND METHODS: 32 patients were operated between 1997 and 2007 for chondral lesions or osteochondritis dissecans of the knee. Mean size of the defect was 5...

Hip fracture is the commonest reason for older people to need emergency anaesthesia and surgery, and leads to prolonged dependence for many of those who survive. People with this injury are usually identified very early in their hospital care, so hip fracture is an ideal marker condition with which to audit the care offered to older people by health services around the world. We have reviewed the reports of eight national audit programmes, to examine the approach used in each, and highlight differences in case mix, management and outcomes in different countries...

INTRODUCTION: Practice management guidelines for screening and treatment of patients with blunt cerebrovascular injury (BCVI) have been associated with a decreased risk of ischemic stroke. TREATMENT: of patients with BCVI and multisystem injuries that delays immediate antithrombotic therapy remains controversial. The purpose of this study was to determine the timing of BCVI treatment initiation, the incidence of stroke, and bleeding complications as a result of antithrombotic therapy in patients with isolated BCVI in comparison to those with BCVI complicated by multisystem injuries...

INTRODUCTION: Beside serious and potentially fatal injuries, the majority of pediatric trauma patients present with minor injuries to emergency departments. The aim of this study was to evaluate age-related injury pattern, trauma mechanism as well as the need for surgery in pediatric patients. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Retrospective Study from 01/2008 to 12/2012 at a level I trauma center. All patients <18years of age following trauma were included. Injury mechanism, injury pattern as well as need for surgery were analyzed according to different age groups (0-3 years, 4-7 years, 8-12 years and 13-17 years)...

Actually, pilon fractures are classified according to AO and Ruedi Allgower classification systems based on X-rays. These classifications are less reproducible and do not provide necessary information for proper surgical planning. Aim of the study is to (1) propose a new classification system based on CT scan; (2) to check the prognostic value of this classification and (3) to evaluate its reliability and (4) reproducibility. We retrospectively reviewed 71 cases of pilon fracture. All fractures were classified according to AO, Ruedi Allgower and new proposed classification system by 5 surgeons...

INTRODUCTION: The purpose of this study was to demonstrate the effectiveness of controlled telescoping system for lateral hip pain caused by sliding of the blade following intramedullary nailing of trochanteric fractures. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A retrospective cohort study was performed to compare the controlled telescoping system (Compression Hip Nail; CHN) with the conventional sliding system (Proximal Femoral Nail Antirotation; PFNA) for trochanteric fractures...
