INTRODUCTION Chronic osteomyelitis is a serious chronic condition that frequently results in permanent after-effects. Treatment is complex, lengthy and costly. MATERIAL AND METHODS Between the beginning of 2003 and the end of 2010, 438 operations of the proximal humerus were performed at our department using either angle-stable osteosynthesis or(More)
PURPOSE OF THE STUDY With the advent of angle-stable implant systems in surgical treatment of proximal humeral fractures, the number of indications to shoulder hemiarthroplasty decreased dramatically, because these modern implants provide certain fixation of osteoporotic bone fragments in elderly patients. MATERIAL AND METHODS The authors report on their(More)
PURPOSE OF THE STUDY To evaluate and compare proximal humeral fractures treated either by plate osteosynthesis with angular-stable screws or by intramedullary nailing, and to define the indications optimal for use of either technique. MATERIAL The study comprised 97 patients. The proximal humeral internal locking system (PHILOS) plate was used in 49(More)
AIM OF STUDY The term "complex pelvic fractures" is reserved for pelvic ring fractures associated with soft tissue injuries in the pelvic region and with haemodynamic instability of the patient. These fractures represent only 10% of all pelvic fractures; however, the morality rate exceeds 33%. This study describes the algorithm of the urgent treatment of(More)
PURPOSE OF THE STUDY The Stoppa approach used in acetabular and pelvic ring fractures provides an excellent visualisation of the anterior column, quadrilateral plate and part of the posterior column for its exact reduction. Our first experience of this surgical approach and preliminary results are reported. MATERIAL AND METHODS Between April 2008 and(More)
PURPOSE OF THE STUDY Surgery for the nonunion or malunion of pelvic fractures is not common even at specialised departments. This article presents the authors experience with this procedure, completed with case studies and a review of relevant literature. MATERIAL AND METHODS From 1998 to 2007, a total of 359 patients underwent surgery for pelvic trauma. In(More)
PURPOSE OF THE STUDY The aim of the study was to assess the average length of a proximal and a distal incision, to verify the location of the axillary nerve and to identify risk factors for nerve injury during minimally invasive plate osteosynthesis. MATERIAL AND METHODS During cadaver study a total of 24 implantations using the Philos angular stable(More)
PURPOSE OF THE STUDY Transverse fractures of sacrum are quite rare. Only about 70 cases have been reported in the relevant literature. Low frequency and rather difficult fracture imaging lead to therapeutical uncertainty and are a cause of a delay of urgent surgery. MATERIAL AND METHODS A group of three male patients aged 17.43 and 31 years was studied.(More)
UNLABELLED PURPOSE OF THE STUDY The aim of the study was to analyse the options for sustentacular screw placement in osteosynthesis of intra-articular fractures of the heel bone and to assess the effect of various screw positions on failure to maintain the reduction in the postoperative period. In addition, problems related to screw-end protrusion over the(More)
Storey and proximal metadiaphyseal humeral fractures are serious injuries, affecting patients of all age cathegories, however, elderly patients are affected more often. Conservative treatment results in a long-term immobilisation of the extremity, restricts ventilation and reduces the comfort. Former implants did not meet requirements for a stable(More)
