We have used 6.5-mm and 4.5-mm Herbert/Whipple screws in our Trauma Center since 1991. This double-threaded headless device is used primarily in the scaphoid to manage fractures and delayed unions, but can be used successfully to fixate other fractures at diverse sites. In reviewing our experience, we will discuss several characteristics of this screw.(More)
To assess accuracy of blood cholesterol measurements in the office, fingerprick blood cholesterol assays by a dry reagent chemistry analyzer were compared in 151 patients with simultaneous venipuncture cholesterol assays by standard laboratory methods. Compared with the laboratory assay, seven of eight analyzers had total absolute biases less than 5%.(More)
In a retrospective study, we evaluated the outcome of 38 patients who underwent open reduction internal fixation for displaced radial head fractures. We used resorbable material, as well as titanium implants which need no hardware removal. Our results were 84% good, 6% satisfying and 10% unsatisfying. The latter were due to more severe damage to the elbow(More)
The Reflotron dry chemistry reflectance photometer was studied as a case-finding method in physicians' offices. A total of 713 adult patients had their risk factor profiles determined along with fingerprick blood cholesterol measurements. Blood cholesterol levels were classified into three categories, (<5.2 mmol/L), 51%; borderline high (5.2 to 6.1 mmol/L),(More)
Since 1984 the typical headless double threaded Herbert/Whipple screw is known in managing scaphoid fractures and scaphoid non-unions. We resume technical, biomechanical and histological aspects to point out advantages and disadvantages of this osteosynthesis. Our case review of 39 patients illustrate the same good results as achieved in treating scaphoid(More)
