Seventeen patients with segmental skeletal defects were managed with the Ilizarov intercalary bone transport method, whereby an osseous defect is eliminated by elongating one fragment. On average, the regenerate new bone length measured 5.14 cm, corresponding to the creation of new osseous tissue equaling 13.7% of the bone's original length (range,(More)

To evaluate two different methods of managing segmental skeletal defects, 15 patients treated with the open bone graft (Papineau) technique were compared with 17 patients who had intercalary bone transport (Ilizarov) management. The treatment time was identical for both groups: 1.9 months in fixation for each centimeter of defect reconstructed. Both(More)
BACKGROUND Forearm fractures are common injuries in both adults and children. Despite efforts to obtain anatomical alignment, axial rotational malunions occur, resulting in a decreased range of motion and a poor appearance. The objective of this study was to quantify loss of forearm rotation after simulation of ulnar malunions in supination and pronation.(More)

The postoperative management of a patient having his or her limb lengthened requires frequent contact and close monitoring by the surgeon. Deformities and contractures cannot be allowed to persist or progress. The patient must be encouraged to bear weight on the lengthening limb, lest the newly formed bone fail to mature and corticalize properly. Pin- or(More)
The biuret total protein method and a bromcresol green (BCG) albumin method were used on the Abbott ABA-100 chemistry analyzer to assay serum proteins in clinically normal cattle, sheep, ponies, pigs, and ducks. Total proteins were also read on a refractometer and mylar supported cellulose acetate electrophoresis was performed. Globulins and A/G ratios were(More)
We reviewed the cases of fourteen patients with chronic osteomyelitis involving a pin track (twelve tibial, one ulnar, and one radial) after either external fixation (thirteen patients) or skeletal traction (one patient). In general, the involved pins had been inserted into cortical bone; in no patient was the pintrack infection in cancellous bone.(More)
To improve implant tolerance and muscle function associated with circular external fixation, the authors substituted divergent titanium pins for the tensioned steel wires used to mount the Ilizarov apparatus on a limb. The first ten patients treated with half-pins were compared to the last ten patients managed with tensioned wires. While the conditions were(More)
Reference (normal) ranges for alkaline phosphatase, total bilirubin, urea nitrogen, chloride, cholesterol, total carbon dioxide, creatine phosphokinase, gamma glutamyl transpeptidase, glucose, lactic dehydrogenase, aspartate and aminotransferase, alanine aminotransferase, sorbitol dehydrogenase and triglycerides were established for cattle, sheep, pigs,(More)
To promote early full weight-bearing and rapid rehabilitation, 20 elderly patients (average age, 82.2 years) with unstable intertrochanteric hip fractures were treated with a bipolar head-neck replacement. Seventeen patients had the prosthesis inserted as primary fracture management, and three, for salvage of failed internal fixation. The patients were(More)
We reviewed 12 patients with chronic drainage after intramedullary nailing of a femoral shaft fracture. The fractures tended to be the result of high-speed trauma and were frequently comminuted. Six were open fractures and six were closed injuries. All but one had been managed initially with the open nailing technique, exposing the fracture site. In six(More)
