No positive effect of autologous platelet gel after total knee arthroplasty
Background and purpose Activated platelets release a cocktail of growth factors, some of which are thought to stimulate repair. We investigated whether the use of autologous platelet gel (PG) inExpand

Re-displacement of stable distal both-bone forearm fractures in children: a randomised controlled multicentre trial.
INTRODUCTION Displaced metaphyseal both-bone fractures of the distal forearm are generally reduced and stabilised by an above-elbow cast (AEC) with or without additional pinning. The purpose of thisExpand

No positive bone healing after using platelet rich plasma in a skeletal defect. An observational prospective cohort study
PurposePlatelet rich plasma (PRP) is derived from the patient’s own blood. The activated blood platelets release a cocktail of growth factors, some of which are thought to initiate and stimulateExpand

Pronation and supination after forearm fractures in children: Reliability of visual estimation and conventional goniometry measurement.
BACKGROUND Forearm fractures are common amongst children and often result in limited rotational function. In daily practice, pronation and supination of the arm are often visually estimated orExpand

Risk factors for the displacement of fractures of both bones of the forearm in children.
Forearm fractures in children have a tendency to displace in a cast leading to malunion with reduced functional and cosmetic results. In order to identify risk factors for displacement, a total ofExpand

Carpal coalition: symptomatic incomplete bony coalition of the capitate and trapezoid--case report.
We present a case of symptomatic, incomplete bony carpal coalition between capitate and trapezoid. We describe previous case reports and possible therapeutic options.

Angular malalignment as cause of limitation of forearm rotation: an analysis of prospectively collected data of both-bone forearm fractures in children.
INTRODUCTION Although limitation of pronation/supination following both-bone forearm fractures in children is often attributed to an angular malunion, no clinical study has comparedExpand

Below-elbow cast for metaphyseal both-bone fractures of the distal forearm in children: a randomised multicentre study.
INTRODUCTION Minimally displaced metaphyseal both-bone fractures of the distal forearm in children are often treated with an above-elbow cast (AEC). Treatment with a below-elbow cast (BEC) could giveExpand

Supracondylar Fractures of the Humerus in Children. Comparison of Results in Two Treatment Periods
Abstract Displaced supracondylar fractures of the humerus in children may be managed with or without Kirschner-wire fixation. The results of treatment of displaced supracondylar fractures of theExpand

Single-bone intramedullary fixation of unstable both-bone diaphyseal forearm fractures in children leads to increased re-displacement: a multicentre randomised controlled trial
IntroductionBoth-bone diaphyseal forearm fractures in children can be stabilised without cast by a flexible intramedullary nail in both the radius and the ulna. Adequate results with single-boneExpand
