AIM The aim of this study was to evaluate the functional results and determine/record the complications after treating distal humerus fractures with an anatomically precontoured and angular-stable double plate system (LCP Distal Humerus Plates, Synthes GmbH, Umkirch). METHOD 51 patients (30 female, 21 male) with 52 fractures of the distal humerus and a(More)
Background: Protracted dislocation of the upper ankle joint can lead to substantial damage to the surrounding soft tissue, possibly followed by local complications and longer hospitalisation. Although reposition is usually easy to conduct, it is commonly recommended that this should only be performed by an experienced specialist, as long as there is no(More)
INTRODUCTION The aim of this study was to evaluate the functional results and complications following open reduction and internal fixation of distal humerus type C fractures (AO classification) using an anatomically precontoured, angular-stable double-plate system. PATIENTS AND METHODS The study is a retrospective analysis of 45 patients with 46 type C(More)
Proximal ulna fractures are common injuries in the upper extremity. The severity of injury ranges from isolated olecranon fractures to complex elbow fracture dislocations. Relevant anatomic features of the proximal ulna for fracture management are presented in the first part of this article. Furthermore, standard and recent techniques of surgical treatment(More)
Instabile Beckenverletzungen sind häufig mit einem großen Blutverlust verbunden, der sich sehr wirkungsvoll durch eine schnelle externe Stabilisierung des Beckens eindämmen lässt. In der S3-Leitlinie Polytrauma/Schwerverletztenbehandlung wird gefordert, dass trotz sehr geringer Sensitivität zunächst eine Stabilitätsprüfung durchgeführt werden und dann bei(More)
Distal humeral fractures in adults are rare. They are routinely treated by open reduction and internal fixation in an attempt to retain a painless, stable and functional joint. However, even with advances in plate technology, the results of fixation still depend on screw purchase and bone quality. Even if functional results appear to be favourable,(More)
OBJECTIVES Two 90-degree configurations of locking reconstruction plates with different numbers of screws in the distal ulnar column segment of distal extra-articular humeral fractures with metaphyseal comminution (A3) were biomechanically investigated. METHODS Eight pairs of fresh-frozen human humeri were used. For paired comparison, the humeri were(More)
This laboratory study aimed to evaluate the loop security, knot security, cyclic loading resistance and load-to-failure rate of three different knot types with establishing a new experimental set-up. Additionally, the mode of failure of each knot was evaluated. With the use of nonabsorbable, braided polyethylene sutures, USP size No. 2 [Hi-Fi®; ConMed(More)
In der Behandlung von Klavikulaschaftfrakturen vollzog sich ein grundlegender Wandel von der konservativen hin zur operativen Therapie. Die Frakturheilung ist langwierig, und die Behandlung ist komplikationsträchtig. In neueren Studien wurden unbefriedigende Ergebnisse nach konservativer Therapie dislozierter Frakturen nachgewiesen und Risikofaktoren für(More)
