Treatment of large posttraumatic tibial bone defects using the Ilizarov method: a subjective outcome assessment
TLDR
The Ilizarov method is a safe option for the treatment of large posttraumatic tibial bone defects after failure of internal fixation despite the high complication rate and worth the effort only in patients, who will presumably comply with this treatment option and all of its drawbacks.
Fragility non-hip fracture patients are at risk
TLDR
The outcome of older non-hip fracture patients are comparable to the poor outcomes of older hip fracture patients, and appear to be primarily related to comorbidities, pre-fracture function and nutritional status.
Cervical Disc and Ligamentous Injury in Hyperextension Trauma: MRI and Intraoperative Correlation
To identify and evaluate diagnostic magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) features in patients with suspicion of discoligamentous cervical injury after hyperextension trauma of the cervical spine.
Treatment and outcome with traumatic lesions of the olecranon and prepatellar bursa: a literature review apropos a retrospective analysis including 552 cases
TLDR
Prophylactic antibiotic therapy can potentially reduce the risk of infection and the need for revision surgery in patients with acute open bursae with high rate of complications.
[Correction of posttraumatic lower leg deformities using the Taylor Spatial Frame].
TLDR
Correcting posttraumatic lower leg deformities using percutaneous osteotomy, external fixation with a ring fixator, and computer-assisted gradual correction with the Taylor Spatial Frame (TSF) to improve the patient comfort.
Fast and easy preoperative estimation of cancellous bone mineral density in patients with proximal femur fractures
TLDR
The proposed radiographic method is an easily applicable, reliable and useful tool to estimate bone quality preoperatively using the contralateral hip as a reference and allows for a more individualized surgical treatment of hip fracture patients adapted to the estimated cancellous bone quality of the patient.
Spondylotic traumatic central cord syndrome: a hidden discoligamentous injury?
TLDR
These findings challenge the traditional concept of spondylotic TCCS as an incomplete cervical spinal cord injury without discoligamentous injury and emphasize the importance of MRI as well as the radiologist’s level of experience for the assessment of segmental instability in these patients.
