Since 1993, 120 fractures of the humerus were treated by retrograde unreamed nailing. Operations were performed on simple, complex, compound and pathological fractures of the proximal three quarter of the humerus. On the proximal humerus, displaced two-part-fractures and occasionally three- or four-part-fractures were stabilized. In 110 cases a prototype of(More)
Nach exakter anatomischer Reposition eines verletzten Halswirbelsäulensegmentes wird über einen ventralen Zugang der Intervertebralraum ausgeräumt und mit einem autogenen kortikospongiösen Block vom Beckenkamm überbrückt. Die interkorporelle Spondylodese wird mit einer H-Platten-Osteosynthese abgeschlossen. Anzustreben ist immer eine Minimalfusion. Bei(More)
Severe infections of the talus are often associated with complete septic collapse of the talus. In this connection, open fractures with defects or significant comminution have a bad prognosis is as far as reconstruction of the talus is concerned. In the Department of Traumatology, Braunschweig, in 1995 three patients (all male, average age 35.3 +/- 10.2(More)
Fractures of the fifth metatarsal bone, mostly avulsion fractures that result from forced inversion of the plantar foot, are relatively common. There are two distinct types of fracture that involve the proximal portion of the fifth metatarsal bone. The first type is the proximal diaphyseal fracture, the so-called Jones fracture, and the second type involves(More)
The authors' ideas on the management of acute and chronic cervical spine injuries are presented. Unstable fractures and dislocations of the lower cervical spine should be reduced as soon as possible. Most frequently, the authors use the anterior approach and the Smith-Robinson technique with the addition of a H-shaped plate. Posterior fusion is mainly(More)
Experience with more than 2000 allogeneic bone transplantations between 1975 and 1990 confirms that implantation of allogeneic, frozen preserved bone material has a wide range of applications. Use in reconstructive surgery and after tumor resection, in particular, is increasing. The main advantage of allogeneic bone transplantation is the almost unlimited(More)
A therapeutic concept for the treatment of acute and chronic cervical spine lesions is presented. Unstable fractures and dislocations of the cervical spine should be reduced as soon as possible. Most frequently, we employ the anterior approach using the Smith and Robinson technique (37) with the addition of an H-shaped plate. The posterior approach is(More)
Eine ausgedehnte Infektion im Bereich des Talus ist häufig mit einem vollständigem septischen Kollaps dieses für die Funktion des Fußes sehr bedeutsamen Fußwurzelknochen assoziert. In diesem Zusammenhang haben vor allem offene Luxations- oder Trümmerfrakturen mit Defekt oder schweren Gelenkzerstörungen eine schlechte Prognose bezüglich einer Rekonstruktion(More)
