BACKGROUND The understanding of the mortality risk posed by pelvic fracture is incomplete. The purposes of this study were (1) to compare the mortality risk associated with a pelvic fracture with the risk conferred by other injuries and (2) to determine if the association of a pelvic fracture with mortality varies when combined with other known risk(More)
Use of the Reamer-Irrigator-Aspirator (RIA) as a source of autogenous bone graft in the treatment of nonunions is increasing. We report on our novel technique of using a second filter containing beta-tricalcium phosphate (TCP) as a graft extender while using the RIA system. We also quantify growth factor concentrations in the collections from the TCP(More)
OBJECTIVES To evaluate a previously described technique using the inherent anteversion of intramedullary nail (IMN) to avoid malrotation in comminuted femur fractures and describe the use of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) as an alternative method for assessing postoperative femoral version. DESIGN Prospective consecutive cohort study. SETTING Level I(More)
OBJECTIVES To evaluate the effectiveness of transsacral-transiliac screw fixation for the treatment of sacral insufficiency fractures that fail nonoperative treatment. DESIGN A pilot study series of consecutive patients identified over 5 years were treated and followed prospectively. SETTING Academic-affiliated, tertiary referral, level 1 trauma center(More)
Rotational malalignment after intramedullary (IM) nailing of femoral fractures remains a significant problem. A technique using intraoperative fluoroscopy and the anteversion inherent to the IM nail for obtaining appropriate femoral rotational alignment is presented. The technique is advocated as a simple alternative to more complex methods for estimation(More)
OBJECTIVES To analyze pelvic fracture mortality rates before and after initiation of a multidisciplinary pelvic fracture protocol. DESIGN Retrospective database analysis. SETTING Prospective data from our Level-I National Trauma Registry of The American College of Surgeons (NTRACS) database. PATIENTS/PARTICIPANTS A total of 1682 trauma patients with(More)
