OBJECTIVE Evaluate whether supplementary fibular fixation helped maintain axial alignment in distal metaphyseal tibia-fibula fractures treated by locked intramedullary nailing. DESIGN Retrospective chart and radiographic review. SETTING Three, level 1, trauma centers. PATIENTS Distal metaphyseal tibia-fibula fractures were separated into 2 groups(More)
A retrospective radiographic evaluation of 39 acetabulae reconstructed with Trilock press-fit components (Depuy, Warsaw, IN) without use of supplementary fixation was performed. The following radiographic criteria were evaluated: change in component inclination angle, migration, osteolytic areas, and radiolucent lines. Acetabular components were considered(More)
