OBJECTIVE To compare the mechanical stability of fixation of an unstable bicondylar tibial plateau fracture with several different fixation techniques in a cadaveric model. DESIGN Randomized laboratory investigation using a simulated bicondylar tibial plateau fracture with metaphyseal-diaphyseal dissociation. SETTING Complex tibial plateau fractures(More)
Intramedullary nailing is a widely accepted technique for the stabilization of unstable diaphyseal tibia fractures. When this method of stabilization is applied to proximal and distal metadiaphyseal fractures, achieving and maintaining fracture reduction is more difficult. The intramedullary nailing of proximal metadiaphyseal fractures in semiextension has(More)
The effect of three different methods of restoring flexor sheath integrity on the formation of adhesions around traumatized flexor tendons was studied by use of a chicken animal model. The three methods were: I, Primary sheath repair; II, a fascia patch; and III, a synthetic polytetrafluoroethylene surgical membrane patch. These were compared with controls(More)
