Background: Pilon fracture is one of the challenging injuries in orthopedic surgery. Associated soft tissue injury is an important factor in choosing treatment options. Two major methods of treatment are considered as one-stage open reduction internal fixation (ORIF) and two-stage treatment (primary external fixation and secondary ORIF). The latter is most accepted in literature. In the current study, we compared the results of these two methods. Methods: In a retrospective study, 41 patients were assigned to two groups containing one-stage primary ORIF (21 patients) group, and two-stage group included external fixation and secondary ORIF (20 patients)...

Background: There are a number of different implant choices for surgical treatment of distal radius fractures, often determined by surgeon preference or availability. Although no one volar plate demonstrates superior outcomes, there are significant cost differences absorbed by hospitals and surgical centers. This purpose of this study is to characterize the economic implications of implant selection in the surgical management of distal radius fractures. Methods: A retrospective review of billing records at a mid-size community surgicenter was conducted for CPT codes 25607, 25608, and 25609 between 1/1/2014 and 6/1/2014, and associated implant costs and facility reimbursements were collected...

Limb lengthening by Ilizarov lengthens not just the long bone, but also the soft tissues too. Damage of the muscles during corticotomy and their stretching during distraction play a crucial role in occurrence of complications and final limb function. We present here a systematic codified nomenclature system of each muscle summarising all the influence that corticotomy and distraction have the particular muscle and demonstrate the same in the setting of tibial lengthening. This scheme helps the surgeon easily recollect what all muscles are involved in what all ways in each level of corticotomy thus enabling him to watch out for complications thereof and monitor and accordingly modify the limb lengthening process...
