PURPOSE To evaluate traumatized bone marrow with a dual-energy (DE) computed tomographic (CT) virtual noncalcium technique. MATERIALS AND METHODS In this prospective institutional review board-approved study, 21 patients with an acute knee trauma underwent DE CT and magnetic resonance (MR) imaging. A software application was used to virtually subtract(More)
Longterm outcomes after valgization high tibial osteotomy (HTO) to treat varus osteoarthritis seem to depend mainly on correction precision. Intraoperative assessment of leg alignment based on radiological visualization of the mechanical axis is difficult and its precision is limited. A promising approach to improving precision is to make use of navigation(More)
BACKGROUND Pelvic and acetabular fractures are rare injuries and account for approximately 3% to 8% of all fractures. Often the result of high energy blunt trauma, most of the patients sustaining pelvic injuries are at high risk of associated injuries strongly influencing outcome and survival rates. Because of anatomic differences it has been suggested that(More)
BACKGROUND Multislice whole body computed tomography is regarded as the method of choice for primary investigation of hemodynamically stable patients with multiple injuries. However, a disadvantage of this method is the high level of radiation to which the patient is exposed. Various recommendations on how to position the patient's arms during whole body(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of our study was to evaluate the complications, technique-related risks, and the clinical course of patients treated with high tibial osteotomy (HTO) for medial arthritis of the knee with varus malalignment. METHODS Forty-three of 46 consecutive patients (follow-up, 93.5%) treated with HTO using the TomoFix implant (Synthes, Solothurn,(More)
Method. Between 10/1997 and 2/2000 we treated eight patients (∼66,5 y, 31–92 y, 5 male, 3 female). These cases were analyzed retrospectively. Results. In one case the the perforation was located in the cervical part, in three cases in the intermediate part, and in four cases in the distal part ofesophagus. In seven cases the perforation was caused by(More)
BACKGROUND The treatment of displaced Colles-type fractures of the distal part of the radius remains a challenge. Two procedures for closed reduction and Kirschner wire osteosynthesis of these fractures were compared in a prospective randomized study. METHODS One hundred consecutive patients with a Colles fracture of the distal part of the radius (AO(More)
Most proximal humeral fractures affect elderly patients and can be treated nonoperatively with good functional outcomes.The treatment of displaced three and four-part fractures remains controversial and depends on a variety of underlying factors related to the patient (e.g., comorbidity, functional demand), the fracture (e.g., osteoporosis), and the surgeon(More)
INTRODUCTION The treatment of fractures of the distal humerus is difficult and involves the risk of bad functional results, particularly with articular fractures or impaired bone quality. Anatomical reconstruction and stable fixation allowing early mobilisation of the elbow are the basic prerequisites for good clinical outcomes. The aim of our study was to(More)
