Die Inzidenz isolierter distaler tibiofibularer Syndesmosenrupturen beträgt 1–11% aller Distorsionstraumen des oberen Sprunggelenks (OSG). Diese Verletzungen werden häufig übersehen, mit einer anterolateralen Rotationsinstabilität des OSG verwechselt und fallen häufig erst durch einen protrahierten Behandlungsverlauf auf. Obwohl seit der systematischen(More)
Subtalar distraction bone-block arthrodesis for malunited calcaneal fractures was performed in 31 patients (26 men, five women), with a mean age of 38.5 years. The mean time from injury to arthrodesis was 36 months. There were no cases of nonunion. One patient had an early dislocation of the bone block requiring a repeat arthrodesis, and one had a(More)
OBJECTIVE The apolipoprotein E (APOE) polymorphism is known to impact on various neurologic disorders and has differential effects on the immune system and on CNS repair. Previous findings concerning a possible modulation of the clinical course of MS have been inconsistent, however. METHODS In a cross-sectional study, the authors investigated 374 patients(More)
BACKGROUND Despite numerous studies analyzing this topic, specific advantages of helicopter transport of blunt polytrauma patients as compared with ground ambulances have not yet been identified unequivocally. METHODS Four possible pathways in 403 polytrauma patients (Injury Severity Score [ISS] > 16) who were in reach of the helicopter emergency medical(More)
Injuries to the distal tibiofibular syndesmosis are frequent in collision sports. Most of these injuries are not associated with latent or frank diastasis between the distal tibia and fibula and are treated as high ankle sprains, with an extended protocol of physical therapy. Relevant instability of the syndesmosis results from rupture of two or more(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this biomechanical cadaver study of calcaneal fractures was to investigate whether a locking calcaneal plate provides more stiffness in osteoporotic bone compared to a non-locking plate. MATERIALS AND METHODS Sixteen fresh frozen bone mineral density (BMD)-matched cadaver feet were tested in a four-part model of a Sanders Type IIB(More)
Background. We assessed the value of measuring biomechanical stiffness by assessing the fixator's external deformation as an objective means for monitoring fracture healing and determining the postoperative treatment regime, as compared to clinical and radiographic means of evaluation. Patients and methods. One hundred patients with tibial shaft fractures(More)
Persistierende Bandinstabilitäten am oberen Sprunggelenk führen zu chronischen Synovitiden, Knorpelläsionen und osteophytären Anbauten im Sinne einer präarthrotischen Deformität. Verletzungen der distalen tibiofibularen Syndesmose werden bei einer Ruptur des Lig. tibiofibulare interosseum relevant. Die exakte Reposition der Fibula in die Tibiainzisur und(More)
Die neue, am 01.10.2003 in Kraft getretene ärztliche Approbationsordnung (AO) hat weitreichende Veränderungen der Studienstruktur und der Anforderung an Lehrende zur Folge, die den die Studienordnungen der einzelnen Fakultäten umgesetzt werden müssen. Mit der Einführung eines praxisorientierten, interdisziplinären Kurscurriculums wurden die Voraussetzungen(More)
