We describe a 33-year-old woman with a bilateral fracture of the sacrum associated with pregnancy. Dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry of the lumbar spine and femoral neck showed normal bone mineral density, whereas bilateral osteopenic areas in the massae laterales were demonstrated by the initial CT-scan. The question remains whether the correct diagnosis is(More)
Three hundred seventy-six patients with peritrochanteric fractures treated over a 10-year period were reviewed. In 85 patients treated with Ender nailing, the most frequent complications were leg shortening (34), external rotation failure (21), and postoperative distal gliding of the nails (7). In 183 patients treated with dynamic hip screws or a 95 degree(More)
In an eight year period, 31 patients with proximal femoral fractures resulting from sports accidents were treated by implantation of either a Gamma nail or a dynamic hip screw. Return to work or sports and the time to bone healing did not differ very much between the treatments. Gamma nailing was clearly the best with regard to stability and time to full(More)
Krebserkrankung der Frau weist in Abfolge verschiedener Modalitäten der Primärtherapie (wie auch einer Rezidivtherapie) umfangreiche Krankheitsund Therapiefolgen somatischer, psychoonkologischer, beruflicher und sozialer Natur auf. Abhängig von der jeweiligen Rehabilitationsbedürftigkeit und -fähigkeit sind umfangreiche spezialisierte Betreuungsprogramme(More)
An den Unfallabteilungen des A. ö. Krankenhauses Schwaz/Tirol und des Landeskrankenhauses Bad Ischl wurden in den Jahren 1987 bis 1991 35 Patienten wegen einer Akromioklavikulargelenksluxation Typ Post IV (18 Fälle) bzw. Tossy III (17 Fälle) mit der Hakenplatte nach Wolter versorgt. Nach der Rodonentfernung wurde mit aktiven Bewegungsübungen bis zur(More)
A modified technique of percutaneous Kirschner-wire pinning for unstable distal radius fractures is presented. Three to four pins are placed from the radial styloid process toward and through the dorsal, volar, and ulnar cortices of the proximal fracture fragment, respectively. Rotational stability is achieved by bending and counterblowing of the wire ends(More)
From 1987 through 1991 thirty-five patients underwent surgical repairs with Wolter's crook plates for acromioclavicular joint rupture. Sixteen of the patients had Post type IV lesions: another 19 patients had the same procedure for Tossy type III lesions. Active shoulder motion up to 90 degrees of abduction and forward flexion was allowed 48 hours(More)
This is a preliminary report of 31 patients treated with Henning's spiral bundle nails for subcapital humeral fractures. Complications included motion restriction at the elbow joint (n = 4), elbow pain caused by pin migration (n = 2), misalignment attributable to incorrect reduction (n = 4), and redislocation attributable to improper technique (n = 1),(More)
The aims of this study were to evaluatethe effectiveness of magnetic resonance cholangiography (MRC) indiagnosing patients with cholestasis and to compare these results tothose obtained with endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreaticography(ERCP). From January 1996 to December 1998 a total of 85consecutive patients who were candidates for ERCP because of(More)
In thirty nine patients with either an acute rotator cuff rupture or a chronic impingement syndrome plus a cuff tear, a standard acromioplasty was performed along with a cuff repair using a bone detaching approach. Postoperative active motion was allowed in all but three. Follow up examination was performed two and five years after the operation. Continuous(More)
