STUDY DESIGN A new technique for the management of traumatic cervical fracture in patients with chin-on-chest deformity in ankylosing spondylitis is presented. OBJECTIVE.: To present a new surgical technique for acute deformity correction through cervical fractures in the setting of kyphotic deformities. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA Cervicothoracic kyphotic(More)
OBJECTIVES To document the high failure rate of a specific implant: the Synthes Variable Angle (VA) Locking Distal Femur Plate. DESIGN Retrospective. SETTING Urban University Level I Trauma Center. PATIENT/PARTICIPANTS All distal femur fractures (OTA/AO 33-A, B, C) treated from March 2011 through August 2013 were reviewed from our institutional(More)
BACKGROUND It has been proposed that cricoid pressure can exacerbate an unstable cervical injury and lead to neurologic deterioration. OBJECTIVE We sought to examine the amount of motion cricoid pressure could cause at an unstable subaxial cervical spine injury, and whether posterior manual support is of any benefit. METHODS Five fresh, whole cadavers(More)
OBJECTIVES Pelvic circumferential compression devices are commonly used in the acute treatment of pelvic fractures for reduction of pelvic volume and initial stabilisation of the pelvic ring. There have been reports of catastrophic soft-tissue breakdown with their use. The aim of the current investigation was to determine whether various pelvic(More)
OBJECTIVES Mast cells have been identified as key mediators of post-traumatic joint contracture, and stabilizing medications (Ketotifen) have been shown to decrease contracture severity. Serum mast cell tryptase (SMCT) levels are used clinically to monitor mast cell-mediated conditions. The goals of this study were to determine if SMCT levels are elevated(More)
OBJECTIVES An elevated maximal amplitude (mA) value with rapid thrombelastography on admission can identify general trauma patients with an increased risk of venous thromboembolic events (VTEs). We hypothesized that (1) the risk of VTE traditionally assigned to injury lies specifically in those who sustain major orthopaedic trauma and (2) an elevated(More)
