Most published reports of a floating clavicle consist of a dislocation of both ends of the clavicle and are associated with a high-energy injury. We report a 71 year old patient with a fracture of the medial end of the clavicle with anterior sternoclavicular dislocation and a nondisplaced fracture of the lateral end of the same clavicle distal to the(More)
Background A variety of methods has been described to stabilise periprosthetic fractures around total knee arthroplasty (TKA). Our report offers a review of the actual strategies in the reduction and fixation of these fractures. Surgical treatment should be based on the following four steps: 1. Diagnostics: By taking the patients' history together with an(More)
Fracture malalignment and nonunion are not infrequent after treating subtrochanteric fractures with intramedullary nails. The use of a cerclage wire with a minimally invasive approach to aid and maintain reduction in certain subtrochanteric fracture patterns can be an effective surgical strategy to improve outcome. It allows the surgeon to obtain and(More)
We assessed the incidence and prognostic significance of right bundle branch block (RBBB) in patients with acute myocardial infarction (AMI) receiving thrombolytic therapy. A prospective, one-year follow-up study involving 681 consecutive patients treated with thrombolytic agents for AMI was performed. Seventy-four patients developed RBBB (46% new-onset,(More)
Within the effort of ISO standarization, service specifications have been thought to be an important tool for formal verification of protocols. The paper discusses the modelling of some concepts quite related with the service: service access points and abstract service primitives. Firstly, ISO concepts are explained. Then, a service architectural model is(More)
Subtalar dislocation is an uncommon injury that affects the talocalcaneal and talonavicular joints, with the tibiotalar and calcaneocuboid joints remaining intact. The 4 types of subtalar dislocation are medial, lateral, anterior, and posterior, although the latter 2 are rare. These injuries-especially lateral dislocation-occur as a result of high-energy(More)
