BACKGROUND The incidence of proximal humeral fractures lies between 105 and 342 per 100 000 persons per year. Around the world, this type of fracture remains a major challenge for treating surgeons. While non-displaced fractures can be managed conservatively, displaced ones are often treated surgically. METHODS Selective literature review. RESULTS There(More)
OBJECTIVE Restoration of the congruence of the hip joint. Correction of gaps or steps in the articular surface, especially in the main weight-bearing area of the acetabular dome. Correction of femoral head subluxation. Restoration of joint stability in order to enable early postoperative mobilization. INDICATIONS Fractures of the anterior wall and/or(More)
PURPOSE Intramedullary nailing and locked plating for fixation of olecranon fractures has recently gained popularity. However, these two new technologies have not been compared for their biomechanical efficacy. The aim of this study was to evaluate the biomechanical stability of two newly designed fracture fixation devices for treating olecranon fractures(More)
The first promising results from "streamlined," minimal genomes tend to support the notion that these are a useful tool in biological systems engineering. However, compared with the speed with which genomic microbial sequencing has provided us with a wealth of data to study biological functions, it is a slow process. So far only a few projects have emerged(More)
