INTRODUCTION: Tuberculosis is a major health problem worldwide. Extrapulmonary tuberculosis is often secondary to some primary foci in lungs. There are reports of tuberculous osteomyelitis involving maxilla, ulna, femur, and shoulder joint but none have reported pathological fracture in humeral diaphysis due to tuberculosis osteomyelitis without shoulder joint involvement. We report a case of pathological fracture of humerus diaphysis due to tuberculous osteomyelitis with normal articular space...

BACKGROUND/AIMS: We present a rare case of stress fracture of the diaphysis of the ulna in a softball pitcher. CASE: A thirteen-year-old girl felt pain over the distal third of the right forearm during pitching. Stress fracture was detected as callus formation of the ulna before fracture displacement. When windmill pitching for softball, the pitcher rotates their arm around the shoulder joint and powerfully hits their forearm to their thigh, which is accompanied by simultaneous pronation of the forearm and flexion of the wrist...

Monteggia fractures are accepted as hard-to-recognize and easy-to-handle fractures. Adequate radiographic investigations and clinical examinations are necessities. This case holds unique features involving diagnosis and treatment. In this case, the radial head was dislocated laterally while both bones were fractured in the proximal diaphysis, being the first to be mentioned in the literature. Closed reduction of the ulna is the preferred method of handling and almost always results in reduction of the radial head...

PURPOSE OF STUDY: Fractures of the distal radius and distal ulna require anatomical reconstruction for good restoration of wrist and hand function. In this study we compared the results of conservative treatment with those of plate osteosynthesis management in distal ulna fractures of patients who had concomitant fractures of the distal radius indicated for plate osteosynthesis. Our objective was to specify indications for plate osteosynthesis of a distal ulna fracture in the case of an associated distal radius fracture...

OBJECTIVE: Intramedullary nailing is the preferred surgical treatment of humerus shaft fractures. The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship between the bicipital groove and specific anatomical landmarks in achieving correct alignment of the humerus during intramedullary nailing, and to describe these anatomical landmarks. METHODS: Thirty (15 right; 15 left) total upper cadaver extremities were used in this study. After the anatomical landmarks were identified and marked, humeral head axis, transepicondylar axis, ulnar shaft axis, bicipital groove axis, and angular measurements of these were obtained...

SUMMARY: A systematic review of eight ulnar fractures in seven patients with bisphosphonate therapy was performed to describe the characteristics and predisposing factors. The proximal ulna is likely to be fractured, especially in the dominant limb of elderly female patients using walking aids after 7 to 15 years of bisphosphonate use. INTRODUCTION: Long-term bisphosphonate use has been suggested to result in decreased bone remodelling and increased risk of atypical fractures...

Angiogenesis and osteogenesis are critically linked, although the role of angiogenesis is not well understood in osteogenic mechanical loading. In this study, either damaging or non-damaging cyclic axial compression was used to generate woven bone formation (WBF) or lamellar bone formation (LBF), respectively, at the mid-diaphysis of the adult rat forelimb. αv β3 integrin-targeted nanoparticles or vehicle was injected intravenously after mechanical loading. β3 integrin subunit expression on vasculature was maximal 7 days after damaging mechanical loading, but was still robustly expressed 14 days after loading...

INTRODUCTION: Although both-bone forearm fractures in children may result in severe limitation of forearm rotation, finding the cause remains a diagnostic challenge. This study tries to evaluate the role of rotational malunion, bony impingement and contractures of the interosseous membrane. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Children (5-16 years) who suffered from a both-bone forearm fracture in diaphysis or distal metaphysis with a limitation of pronation/supination ≥40° at ≥6 months after trauma were included for analysis with conventional radiographs, computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)...

INTRODUCTION: Both-bone forearm fractures in children frequently result in a limitation of pronation/supination, which hinders daily activities. The purpose of this prospective multicentre study was to investigate which clinical factors are related to the limitation of pronation/supination in children with a both-bone forearm fracture. METHODS: In four Dutch hospitals, consecutive children (<16 years) who sustained a both-bone forearm fracture were included. Children were followed up for 6-9 months and data from questionnaires, physical examination and X-rays were collected...

INTRODUCTION: There is no classification for acquired forearm deformities. A clinical-radiographic study was conducted to classify these deformities and evaluate the results. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Thirteen patients with forearm deformities following traumas or their treatment were included (11 men and two women, from 2000 to 2010). Mean age was 31 years (range 10-75 years). Initial treatment was conservative in five patients and surgical in eight patients. One segment was affected in seven patients (the radius in four patients, the ulna in three), and both segments were affected in six patients...

The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of xenogenic cortical bone (XCB) on fracture repair in the canine ulna. The entire group of animals (n = 12) had a transverse resection of 5 mm length at the middle part of the right ulnar diaphysis. In Group A (eight beagles), the fracture was treated with XCB and metal bone screw. In Group B (four beagles), the fracture was treated with metal bone plate and screw. Radiological, micro-computed tomography (micro-CT), histological examination and mechanical testing were employed to evaluate bone healing and reaction of XCB in the host bone...

INTRODUCTION: Forearm fractures are common among children. Unlike most pediatric fractures, there is a risk of unsatisfactory results in forearm shaft fractures. The healing of a tubular bone is most unlikely in the diaphysis far away from the metaphyseal zones. The treatment of forearm shaft fractures is evolving. The purpose of the study was to analyze the pattern of forearm shaft fractures and their treatment in a population of children in recent years. MATERIALS AND METHODS: All the children (from 0 to 16 years) with a both-bone forearm shaft fracture (AO-segment 22-D) during the years 1997 to 2009 in a catchment area of about 86,000 children were included in this population-based study...

Development of osteomyelitis in a closed fracture is rare. Although it has been reported that trivial trauma may be associated with the subsequent development of acute osteomyelitis, no evidence has been found that fractures are involved in the etiology of osteomyelitis. Only 25 cases (11 in adolescents) of osteomyelitis after closed fracture have been reported in literature. The authors report a case of osteomyelitis in an 8-year-old girl after a forearm fracture involving the diaphysis of the radius and ulna...

INTRODUCTION: Intra-articular distal radial fractures in young subjects occur in severe trauma. Articular reduction needs to be anatomical. We report four cases with the particularity of having a 90° or 180° rotated lunate fossa. Our goal is to bring out the positive aspects of surgical procedure by volar medial approach and to assess long-term functionnal and radiological results. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Our study focused on four men whose average age was 27 (age range from 19 to 43)...
