The Acutrak plus compression screw (APCS) (Acumed Inc., Beaverton, OR, USA) is an intramedullary implant which can achieve stable fixation with minimum soft tissue dissection. The characteristics of the APCS include fully-threaded length, headless, cannulated, and variable thread pitch. Twenty-three patients with AO type-B2 ankle fractures treated with(More)
Tension band wire and hook plating for the treatment of distal clavicle fractures are each associated with clinical benefits and complications. In this study, we compared outcomes of 2 treatments for short-term distal clavicle fracture management for patients asking for faster improvement. From February 2005 to November 2008, 65 patients with distal(More)
Ninety-eight pilon fractures associated with ipsilateral distal fibular fracture were included in this study. The pilon fractures were treated by open reduction and plating. The 98 fractures were divided into three groups based on the treatment method of fractured fibula. Group A was composed of 50 fibular fractures treated by open reduction and plate(More)
BACKGROUND This study was conducted to evaluate the treatment of aseptic nonunion of the humeral shaft with a dynamic compression plate (DCP) and cancellous bone graft. METHODS One hundred and five cases of nonunion of a humeral shaft fracture between 1982 and 2001 were analyzed retrospectively. The study population comprised 66 males and 39 females with(More)
This retrospective study was to compare the clinical outcomes of volar locking plating (VLP) and percutaneous Kirschner wiring (PKW) for the management of displaced Colles type distal radius fractures in patients between 50 and 70 years old. There were 31 elderly patients with displaced Colles’ fractures treated by VLP. We compared them to 31 match-paired(More)
Agent-Based Disaster Simulation Environment (ABDiSE) is a framework that provides model elements and tools to support modeling and simulation of common types of natural disasters, including fires, floods and debris flows. The underlying disaster model is agent based: Active objects describe how agents move, attach, and interact with each other and with(More)
