Trauma is disease of the young, mainly affecting people between 15-40 years of age. Uncontrolled massive bleeding is the leading cause of early in-hospital mortality, within 48h of admission, and the second leading cause of prehospital death in victims of both military and civilian trauma, accounting for 40-45% of the total fatalities. Coagulopathy develops(More)
The most important anatomic risk factors in ACL lesions are the morphometric parameters of intercondylar notch. In the morphometric studies index of notch width and index of notch shape (NWI and NSI) are commonly used. The certain morphologic parameters of distal femoral part are used in calculation. Beside standard parameters we measured the maximal width(More)
One of the most important technical demands in ACL surgery is good fixation of the graft. Integrity of the posterior femoral cortex is necessary for Interference screws fixation. The femoral tunnel, placed as posterior as possible, is also mandatory for good graft position and potentially leads to violation of the cortex. The divergence between screw and(More)
The damage control laparotomy is an advancement in the management of massively injured trauma patients. Massive liver injuries, pelvic trauma and some retroperitoneal injuries are some of the indications for this approach. The damage control laparotomy is the phased approach to severe abdominal injury that might best be described with the acronym STIR(More)
Treatment of frozen shoulder resistant to conservative therapy is complex problem. Manipulation under anesthesia is undertaken if at least 3 months of physical therapy fails to improve mobility of the shoulder. Maintaining the increased range of montion after manipulation is not easy to acheive. The main reaxon is the pain, which prohibits optimal physical(More)
Nonsteroidal antiinflamatory drugs (NSAIDs) lead to satisfactory acute and chronic pain relief. Besides that, they exert potent antiinflamatory effect. Their analgesic potency is dose related and limited. Orthopedic patients are often on these medications preoperatively and experience opioid-sparing effect in the postoperative period. Chronic NSAIDs use is(More)
Knee arthrofibrosis, which usually occurs after trauma or surgery, can inhibit joint biomechanics. An elaborated interaction of growth factors and other inflammatory mediators initiates and coordinates this deleterious tissue proliferation. Knowledge of risk factors can aid clinicians in helping patients avoid knee arthrofibrosis. Once the condition is(More)
In this study we have analyzed outcome during the early rehabilitation period phase following two different methods of anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction: ligamentum patellae (LP) and semitendonosus/gracilis tendon (SG) based reconstruction. This study included 40 patients treated by each method, examined 6 weeks and 3, 6 and 12 months after(More)
INTRODUCTION Position of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) represents one of the anatomical factors which can lead to the rupture of the ligament. AIM The aim of this study was to overview and compare gender and age differences of the position of the ACL and its relation with the medial aspect of the lateral femoral condyle. METHOD The measurements(More)
We analyzed 30 patients with infected diaphyseal defect of femur, which have been treated by lengthening one of the bone fragments with Ilizarov apparatus. The mean length of the bone defect was 6 cm. Substitution of the defect, bone healing and elimination of the infection was achieved in 27 patients. The mean time of apparatus fixation was 10 months.(More)
