Masquelet technique for fracture gaps

Gaurav Gupta, Sohail Ahmad, Mohd Zahid, A H Khan, M K A Sherwani, Abdul Qayyum Khan
BACKGROUND: Gap nonunion of long bones is a challenging problem, due to the limitation of conventional reconstructive techniques more so if associated with infection and soft tissue defect. Treatment options such as autograft with non-vascularized fibula and cancellous bone graft, vascularized bone graft, and bone transportation are highly demanding on the part of surgeons and hospital setups and have many drawbacks. This study aims to analyze the outcome of patients with wide diaphyseal bone gap treated with induced-membrane technique (Masquelet technique)...

The percentage of delayed or non-unions after fractures of long bones depends on the individual risk profile at approximately 10 %. The current definition states that a non-union is a fracture that will not consolidate without any further intervention - independent from the treatment time. At the early stage of a non-union a conservative treatment is possible in case of an adequately stable situation. The operative treatment depends on the type of the non-union. There are one-step or two-step procedures, all according to the principles of the "diamond concept"...

INTRODUCTION: The treatment of posttraumatic diaphyseal bone defects (BD) calls on a number of techniques including bone transport techniques: isolated shortening, compression-distraction at the fracture site, shortening followed by lengthening in a corticotomy distant from the site and segmental bone transport. PATIENTS AND METHODS: The multicenter retrospective study combined 38 cases: 22 cases of initial diaphyseal bone defect and 16 cases of secondary diaphyseal BD, sometimes associated with metaphyseal or metaphyseal-epiphyseal BD, involving the humerus, the forearm, the femur and the tibia...
