INTRODUCTION Delayed bone healing is an eminent problem in the operative treatment of distal tibia fractures. To address this problem from a biomechanical perspective, the DLS 3.7 (Dynamic Locking Screw 3.7 mm) as a new generation of locking screws has been developed. This screw enables the surgeon to control the rigidity of the plate osteosynthesis and(More)
BACKGROUND Bone complications, also known as skeletal-related events (SREs), are common in patients with bone metastases secondary to advanced cancers. OBJECTIVE To provide a detailed estimate of the health resource utilization (HRU) burden associated with SREs across eight European countries. METHODS Eligible patients from centers in Austria, the Czech(More)
BACKGROUND Skeletal-related events (SREs; pathologic fracture [PF], spinal cord compression and radiation or surgery to bone) are common complications of bone metastases or bone lesions and can impose a considerable burden on patients and healthcare systems. In this study, the healthcare resource utilisation (HRU) associated with PFs in patients with bone(More)
BACKGROUND Dynamic augmentation of anterior cruciate ligament tears seems to reduce anteroposterior knee translation close to the pre-injury level. The aim of the present study is to biomechanically investigate the course of translation during a simulated early post-operative phase. It is hypothesized that anteroposterior translation is maintained at the(More)
BACKGROUND Operative treatment is the standard for severely displaced proximal humerus fractures, but functional impairment can persist. Retaining of the implant can be a reason and in other fracture situations has proved to ameliorate patient satisfaction. The aim of this study was to analyse the functional outcome after locking plate removal in proximal(More)
OBJECTIVES Osteosynthesis of anterior pubic ramus fractures using one large-diameter screw can be challenging in terms of both surgical procedure and fixation stability. Small-fragment screws have the advantage of following the pelvic cortex and being more flexible.The aim of the present study was to biomechanically compare retrograde intramedullary(More)
