Chemical thromboprophylaxis has been shown to reduce the incidence of venous thromboembolism (VTE) for patients with fractures of the hip, but it is not known with certainty whether it use also reduces mortality. Using postal and telephone questionnaires we collected data from English National Health Service (NHS) hospitals about their thromboprophylaxis(More)
BACKGROUND Anatomically preshaped plates are increasingly used for stabilization of comminuted olecranon and Monteggia fractures. The purposes of this study were to investigate the morphology of the proximal ulna and to compare morphologic findings with geometry of 4 preshaped ulna plates. MATERIALS AND METHODS Forty human elbows (mean age, 68 years;(More)
Trauma is the leading cause of death in children. Pelvic ring injuries account for 0.3–4 % of all paediatric injuries. The pattern of fractures differs to that seen in adults as it is more ductile. Pelvic ring injuries tend to be more stable as the relatively thick periosteum restricts bony displacement. Intrapelvic viscera are not well protected and can(More)
Pediatric pelvic injury is of major significance despite these injuries in children are rare with a suspected yearly rate of 3% of all pelvic injuries. The special pediatric bone anatomy of the pelvis is responsible for different fracture patterns, and overall, a bony or joint injury of the pelvis is an indicator of a severe trauma. The vast majority of(More)
Injections into the subtalar joint may be performed for diagnostic or therapeutic reasons. The anterolateral approach is most commonly utilised for this purpose. We evaluated the success of an intra-articular puncture by using the anterolateral in comparison to the posterolateral approach. Sixty-eight cadaver adult feet were used for performing injections(More)
Monteggia fractures are rare in children, and subtle radial head dislocations, with minor plastic deformation of the ulna, may be missed in up to a third of cases. Complications of Monteggia fractures-dislocations include persistent radial head dislocation, forearm deformity, elbow stiffness, and nerve palsies at the time of presentation. An unusual case of(More)
Intra-articular punctures and injections are performed routinely on patients with injuries to and chronic diseases of joints, to release an effusion or haemarthrosis, or to inject drugs. The purpose of this study was to investigate the accuracy of placement of the needle during this procedure. A total of 76 cadaver acromioclavicular joints were injected(More)
BACKGROUND Injections of the acromioclavicular joint (ACJ) are performed routinely in patients with ACJ arthritis, both diagnostically and therapeutically. The aim of this prospective controlled study was to estimate the frequency of successful intra-articular ACJ injections with the aid of sonographic guidance versus non-guided ACJ injections.
