Free vascularized fibular grafting (FVFG) is an effective method to treat corticosteroid-induced osteonecrosis of the femoral head (ONFH). Some patients continued to receive maintenance doses of corticosteroids to treat the primary disease postoperatively. This study was performed to evaluate outcomes of FVFG for corticosteroid-induced ONFH in patients who(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the prevalence of clinical anxiety and clinical depression in Chinese young and mid-aged patients with osteonecrosis of the femoral head (ONFH) and to analyze their potential risk factors. METHODS Two hundred and sixteen Chinese patients with ONFH were consecutively enrolled in this cross-sectional study from January 2010 to(More)
OBJECTIVE Free vascularised fibular grafting (FVFG) could be a good option for the restoration of massive bone defects in lower limbs when combined with use of a locking plate. The progress of fibular hypertrophy is closely related to regain of function, as well as to prevention of stress fractures. Multiple variables affecting fibular hypertrophy were(More)
Above-knee amputations are rare injuries that need emergent replantation or primary amputation. Although survival could be achieved in selective cases, postoperative function of the affected limb is usually unsatisfactory and a late amputation has to be performed for poor prognosis or severe complications. Experience of the surgical team may play an(More)
Although free vascularized fibular grafting (FVFG) has been successfully employed for precollapsed osteonecrosis of the femoral head (ONFH), there are few reports concerning its radiographic and functional results for ONFH concomitant with osteoarthritis (OA) of the hip. In the current study, 12 patients with OA induced by traumatic ONFH were enrolled, with(More)
The goal for treatment of osteonecrosis of the femoral head (ONFH) is to relieve pain, preserve the contour of the femoral head, and delay the need for total hip arthroplasty. The free vascularized fibular grafting (FVFG) has been shown to support the subchondral architecture as well as restore local circulation for the necrotic femoral head in treatment of(More)
BACKGROUND It is controversial whether an early reduction and internal fixation can reduce the occurrence of femoral neck fracture-induced osteonecrosis of the femoral head (ONFH). This prospective study was designed to reflect the relationship between injury-to-surgery interval (ISI) and traumatic ONFH based on a canine model of femoral neck fractures. (More)
Although a large skeletal defect secondary to osteomyelitis in children is not an uncommon problem, there are no descriptions of the management of such a defect with a free vascularized fibular graft in combination with a locking plate. We performed such a technique, after radical debridement and systemic antibiotic treatment, on a 13-year-old boy suffering(More)
Free vascularized fibular grafting (FVFG) has been reported to be an effective method of treating osteonecrosis of the femoral head (ONFH). This study evaluated whether postoperative maintenance doses of corticosteroids had an adverse effect on FVFG outcomes in patients with corticosteroid-induced ONFH. We retrospectively reviewed the records of 39 patients(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the safety and efficacy of locking plate combined with bone grafting in the treatment of aseptic nonunion following intramedullary nailing fixation of fractures of the long bones. METHODS Thirty-eight consecutive patients treated in our hospital between January 2004 and December 2006 were included in this retrospective study. The(More)
