OBJECTIVE To compare unreamed intramedullary nailing (IMN) with external fixation (EF) in patients with Type II, IIIA, and IIIB open fractures of the tibial shaft. DESIGN An inception cohort of consecutive patients with Type II, IIIA, and IIIB tibial fractures incurred between January 1988 and March 1993 were systematically allocated into one of two(More)
OBJECTIVES Single incision open reduction and double plate fixation of complex tibial plateau fractures has been associated with high wound complication rates. Minimally invasive methods have been recommended to decrease the wound complication rates as compared with open techniques. Additionally, laterally applied fixed-angle devices appear to minimize late(More)
OBJECTIVE To conduct a biomechanical comparison of a new triangular osteosynthesis and the standard iliosacral screw osteosynthesis for unstable transforaminal sacral fractures in the immediate postoperative situation as well as in the early postoperative weight-bearing period. DESIGN Twelve preserved human cadaveric lumbopelvic specimens were cyclicly(More)
A chart review of 20 patients who sustained acute proximal humeral fractures and who were treated by surgical stabilization with locked antegrade humeral intramedullary nails (Polarus nails) was undertaken. The clinical outcome measurements were fracture healing, infection, and neurologic injury. Radiologic outcome measurements included fracture alignment,(More)
The efficacy of posterior arthrodesis of the cervical spine with AO reconstruction plates and autogenous bone graft was evaluated in a prospective study. The technique of surgical exposure and the application of the reconstruction plates fixed with screws to the lateral masses is described in detail. Of 30 patients with unstable cervical spines, all had(More)
OBJECTIVES To compare the clinical and radiographic results for locked intramedullary (IM) nails and plates used in the treatment of humeral diaphyseal fractures. DESIGN Prospective randomization by sealed-envelope technique of eighty-four patients into two study groups: those treated by intramedullary nailing (IMN group; n = 38) and those treated by(More)
This biomechanical study compares two methods of internal fixation of the tibiofibular syndesmosis used in Weber type C malleolar fractures of the ankle. The transverse syndesmotic 3.5-mm screw was compared with two 1.5-mm Kirschner wires introduced obliquely across the distal tibiofibular syndesmosis. The influence of implants on distal tibiofibular joint(More)
Several questions relating to the biomechanics of the AO unreamed tibial nail were addressed in this study. These included the effects of the location of the nail bend on the reduction of a high proximal fracture, and the relation of proximal locking screw hole orientation and fracture component cortical contact to the mechanical stiffness of the construct.(More)
BACKGROUND Plate fixation of comminuted bicondylar tibial plateau fractures remains controversial. This retrospective study was performed to evaluate the perioperative results and functional outcomes of medial and lateral plate stabilization, through anterolateral and posteromedial surgical approaches, of comminuted bicondylar tibial plateau fractures.

OBJECTIVE To understand the influence of obesity on the morbidity and mortality outcomes of patients who have sustained fractures of the femur and tibia. DESIGN Retrospective review. SETTING Multicenter level I trauma facilities. PATIENTS/PARTICIPANTS Motor vehicle crash victims enrolled in multicenter databases were reviewed. MAIN OUTCOME(More)
