Internal fixation compared with arthroplasty for displaced fractures of the femoral neck. A meta-analysis.
TLDR
In comparison with internal fixation, arthroplasty for the treatment of a displaced femoral neck fracture significantly reduces the risk of revision surgery, at the cost of greater infection rates, blood loss, and operative time and possibly an increase in early mortality rates.
Internal fixation of unstable pelvic ring injuries.
TLDR
Open reduction and internal fixation within 21 days were associated with a higher percentage of excellent reductions than in reductions performed after 21 days, however, differences were not statistically significant, however.
Practical research methods for orthopaedic surgeons.
TLDR
It is helpful for orthopaedic surgeons to review different study designs and their levels of evidence, to understand statistical jargon and the selection of the statistical test that is appropriate for given types of data, and to be familiar with the process of sample size calculations.
Level of evidence in orthopaedic journals.
TLDR
The type and level of information in orthopaedic journals can be reliably classified, and clinical investigators should pursue studies with a higher level of evidence whenever feasible.
Outcome of operatively treated unstable posterior pelvic ring disruptions.
TLDR
Properly performed open reduction and internal fixation of unstable posterior pelvic ring injuries may he expected to yield good functional results in the majority of patients.
Stress examination of supination external rotation-type fibular fractures.
TLDR
Stress radiographs allow for the accurate diagnosis of deltoid incompetence in patients with Weber type-B SE fibular fractures and no other osseous injury and soft-tissue indicators are not accurate predictors of instability.
Femoral torsion after interlocked nailing of unstable femoral fractures.
TLDR
It is found that anteversion of the normal femur can be determined in the operating room using the image intensifier and can be duplicated on the fractured side using the described technique in cases where comminution prevents fragmentational alignment.
Operative management of displaced femoral neck fractures in elderly patients. An international survey.
TLDR
While surgeons prefer internal fixation for younger patients and arthroplasty for older patients, they disagree about the optimal approach to the management of patients between sixty and eighty years old with a displaced fracture and active patients with a Garden type-III fracture.
Intraarticular anatomic risks of tibial nailing.
TLDR
Damage to the intraarticular structures of the knee is possible during tibial nailing with a superior portal and the safe zone for nail placement is small and can be exceeded if a reamed nail is used.
Barriers to Full-Text Publication Following Presentation of Abstracts at Annual Orthopaedic Meetings
TLDR
In a survey of investigators who had not had a full-text article published after presenting the abstract at a national meeting, it was found that the failure to publish was due to one of three main reasons: they did not have enough time to prepare a manuscript for publication, relationships with co-authors sometimes presented a barrier to final publication.
