PURPOSE: To compare the patient-reported, clinical, and radiographic outcome of 2 methods of internal fixation in distal radius fractures. METHODS: Fifty patients, mean age 56 years (range, 21-69 years) with primarily nonreducible or secondarily redisplaced distal radius fractures were randomized to open reduction internal fixation using volar locking plates (n = 25) or fragment-specific fixation (n = 25). The patients were assessed on grip strength, range of motion, patient-reported outcome (Quick Disabilities of the Arm, Shoulder, and Hand), pain (visual analog scale), health-related quality of life (Short Form-12 [SF-12]), and radiographic evaluation...

PURPOSE: To describe our clinical experience with a system named SureShot? Distal Targeting (Smith & Nephew, Memphis, USA) based on magnetic field presence and discuss our suggestions on this technique. METHODS: We analysed prospectively 47 patients affected by humeral, tibial or femoral fractures, treated in our institution during a 3-year period of time (August 2010 to September 2013). We considered the following parameters: the time to set up, the time to position a single screw, the effectiveness of the system (drilling ad screwing), the irradiation exposure time during distal locking procedure and surgical complications...

BACKGROUND: Nonadherence to prescribed regimens for opioid analgesic agents contributes to increasing opioid abuse and overdose death. Opioids are frequently prescribed on an as-needed basis, placing the responsibility to determine opioid dose and frequency with the patient. There is wide variability in physician prescribing patterns because of the lack of data describing how patients actually use as-needed opioid analgesics. Digital pill systems have a radiofrequency emitter that directly measures medication ingestion events, and they provide an opportunity to discover the dose, timing, and duration of opioid therapy...

The hand function of patients who suffer from trigger finger can be impaired by the use of traditional splints. There is also a risk of systemic side effects with oral non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) used for pain relief. Microneedle-assisted transdermal drug delivery offers an attractive alternative for local delivery of NSAIDs. However, traditional microneedle arrays fabricated on flat surfaces are unable to deliver drugs effectively across the undulating skin surface of affected finger(s)...

A 25-year-old man suffered an isolated lens anterior capsular tear and mature cataract formation following blunt injury to his right eye. One week after the trauma, best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA) in the right eye was hand motion. B-scan ultrasonography showed that the lens posterior capsule was intact; no vitreous foreign body or retinal pathology were observed. Orbital computed tomography revealed narrowed anterior chamber and increased lens material volume and lens reflectivity in the injured right eye...

: Fractures of the radial head and radial neck correspond to 1.7-5.4% of all fractures and approximately 30% may present associated injuries. In the literature, there are few reports of radial head fracture with posterior interosseous nerve injury. This study aimed to report a case of radial head fracture associated with posterior interosseous nerve injury. CASE REPORT: A male patient, aged 42 years, sought medical care after falling from a skateboard. The patient related pain and limitation of movement in the right elbow and difficulty to extend the fingers of the right hand...

Hand-reared elephant calves that are nursed with milk substitutes sometimes suffer bone fractures, probably due to problems associated with nutrition, exercise, sunshine levels and/or genetic factors. As we were expecting the birth of an Asian elephant (Elephas maximus), we analyzed elephant's breast milk to improve the milk substitutes for elephant calves. Although there were few nutritional differences between conventional substitutes and elephant's breast milk, we found a large unknown peak in the breast milk during high-performance liquid chromatography-based amino acid analysis and determined that it was glucosamine (GlcN) using liquid chromatography/mass spectrometry...

Large glenoid fractures are relatively uncommon with shoulder dislocation. Simultaneous glenoid and greater tuberosity fractures with anterior shoulder dislocation are very rare. We report on a 48-year right-handed male who sustained a fall during skiing. He had anterior shoulder dislocation combined with large glenoid fracture and greater tuberosity fracture. He was treated surgically with fixation of the glenoid and greater tuberosity fractures, using two different approaches. The deltopectoral approach with coracoid osteotomy and subscapularis split was used for glenoid fixation...

Implant breakage is a serious complication after cephalomedullary nailing for unstable intertrochanteric fracture. Failure usually occurs at the lag screw hole in the nail body. On the other hand, lag screw failure is extremely rare and occurs around the nail-lag screw junction. We experienced rare mechanical failure of the Intertan nail, which showed breakage at the lag screw hole and failure of the integrated compression screw underneath the main lag screw.

The management of upper limb non-unions can be challenging and often with unpredictable outcomes. In this study we present our experience with the use of BMP-7 in the treatment of upper limb non-unions. Between 2004 and 2011 all consecutive patients who were treated with BMP-7 were followed up prospectively until fracture union. Fracture union was assessed with regular radiological and clinical assessment. At the final follow up clinical assessment included the short Disabilities of the Arm, Shoulder and Hand (DASH) score...

INTRODUCTION: Intramedullary nailing is a common procedure for the treatment of proximal humeral fractures. In practical resident training this standardized operation plays an important role in the introduction to osteosynthesis. Our aim was to investigate whether assisting this operation to residents influences the surgical complication rate both in-house and on re-admission. METHODS: All 1134 patients who received a proximal humeral Targon PH nail (Aesculap) for proximal humeral fractures were included between 2000 and 2013...

The name of Ender is primarily associated with the Ender nails, which were popular for trochanteric fracture fixation more than thirty years ago. However, Ender's concepts were not limited to the implant. Ender developed a unique classification system for trochanteric and subtrochanteric fractures, which provided the theory for closed reduction maneuvers that made the method so successful in his hands. While Ender's nails have become history in the meantime, his principles of fracture reduction can be readily applied on surgery with modern implants such as proximal femoral nails...
