OBJECTIVE To compare the effects of unreamed and reamed intramedullary nailing on the systemic production of prostacyclin and thromboxane A2 as assessed, respectively, by determinations of urinary 2,3-dinor-6-ketoprostaglandin F1alpha and 11-dehydrothromboxane B2 excretion. METHODS Ten otherwise healthy patients with closed and simple tibial shaft(More)
We evaluated the effect of hyperbaric oxygen (HBO2) therapy on tibialis posterior (TPA), dorsalis pedis (DPA), and sum (TPA + DPA) arterial peak signals, as well as transcutaneous oxygen (PtcO2) tension and leg skin temperature (T) after intramedullary nailing of tibial shaft fractures. Twenty consecutive patients with closed and simple tibial shaft(More)
This prospective study investigates the effect of injury and surgery of cartilage and bone on serum group II phospholipase A2 (PLA2-II) and C-reactive protein (CRP) levels. Serum concentrations of PLA2-II and CRP were measured before and after the operation in nine patients with closed tibial shaft fractures treated by nailing, 11 patients with fractures of(More)
BACKGROUND To compare the effects of unreamed and reamed intramedullary nailing on tibialis posterior, dorsalis pedis, and sum (tibialis posterior plus dorsalis pedis) distal arterial peak pulses. Additionally, leg skin temperature and transcutaneous oxygen tension were measured in patients with low energy, closed tibial shaft fractures. METHODS The(More)
BACKGROUNDS AND AIMS To measure noninvasively the effect of circulative changes caused by fracture and intramedullary nailing on tibialis posterior (TPA), dorsalis pedis (DPA) and sum (TPA + DPA) arterial peak signals, transcutaneous oxygen tension (PtcO2) as well as local skin temperature (T) in patients with tibial shaft fractures.
