Treatment of open supracondylar-intercondylar fractures of the femur by ilizarov external fixator

The results confirmed the need for further studies to investigate the role of pre-existing musculoskeletal conditions in the development of central giant cell granuloma and the immune response to these conditions.

Open Tibial Fracture Treatment in Argentina

An improved understanding of the factors that influence treatment may help to guide future areas for improvement, establish educational goals, and create additional nationwide guidelines for open tibial fracture treatment.

The Floating Knee in Pediatric Patients: A Single-Center Retrospective Study From a Referral Center

Surgical management of the fractures brought satisfactory outcomes and reduced complications, and fixation of injuries is recommended for early return to daily activities and for a reduction in residual complications.

The Pediatric "Floating Knee" Injury: A State-of-the-Art Multicenter Study.

A multicenter retrospective review of the records of pediatric patients with ipsilateral femoral and tibial fractures that had been treated at 11 tertiary care level-I pediatric trauma centers from 2004 to 2014 demonstrates a change in practice pattern from a largely nonoperative treatment strategy to operative fixation of at least the femoral fracture.

Cement augmentation of internal fixation for trochanteric fracture: systematic review and meta-analysis v1 (

Surgical Treatment of Pelvic Ring Injuries and Acetabular Fractures Aspects on Patient-reported Outcome

The overall aim of the present thesis was to study the patient perspective on outcome following surgical treatment of pelvic ring injuries and acetabular fractures in the elderly and found that pre-traumatic quality of life was high and comparable to a reference population.

Management trends of clavicular fractures at a level 1 trauma center: a retrospective chart review

There was a five-fold increase in the rate of operative management of clavicular fractures from 2004 to 2018, and this rise in fixation rates may substantially influence the rates of complications, secondary surgeries, and cost of additional healthcare utilization.

The Burden of Orthopaedic Disease in Sub-Saharan Africa: A Focus on Tanzania

The burden of orthopaedic surgical disease at Kilimanjaro Christian Medical Center (KCMC) in Tanzania continues to grow, and multiple system level constraints preclude delivery of definitive treatment for most patients.


A suprapatellar entry tibial nail is an acceptable treatment option for tibian non-unions not previously treated with a nail, using the suprapatelar approach.



Improving reliability in the classification of fractures of the acetabulum

The reliability of the Letournel classification improves with level of training, and physicians with less experience with acetabular fractures have significantly better agreement in identifying fractures using the six radiographic lines on the AP film than the Letornel classification.

A New Classification Scheme for Open Fractures. Commentaries

The proposed Orthopaedic Trauma Association Classification of Open Fractures is a scientifically derived assessment tool for determining the severity of open fractures and will require further testing to establish validity characteristics and determine its clinical use compared with existing open fracture classification systems.

Intramedullary Fixation of Fibular Fractures Associated With Pilon Fractures

In axially and rotationally stable fibular fracture patterns associated with pilon fractures, intramedullary fibular stabilization was effective in maintaining fibular alignment and may be particularly advantageous in patients with compromised lateral and posterolateral soft tissues.

The AOSpine Sacral Fracture Classification

The AOSpine sacral fracture classification is the first comprehensive sacral classification to consider posterior pelvic and spino-pelvic instability patterns, and validation studies are ongoing.

The tibial plateau fracture. The Toronto experience 1968--1975.

It became apparent in the course of the review that a collective approach to the tibial plateau fracture is misleading and the classification was changed, so that 90" or less of knee function was judged unacceptable.

Documentation of fracture severity with the AO classification of pediatric long-bone fractures

The findings suggest that the classification of fracture severity in children should be done in only two categories that distinguish between simple and wedge/complex fractures.

The surgical algorithm for the AOSpine thoracolumbar spine injury classification system

The current algorithm uses a meaningful injury classification and worldwide surgeon input to determine the initial treatment recommendation for thoracolumbar injuries, which allows for a globally accepted surgical algorithm for the treatment of thoraclumbar trauma.

Three-Column Fixation for Complex Tibial Plateau Fractures

Three-column fixation is a new fixation concept in treating complex tibial plateau fractures, which is especially useful for multiplanar fractures involving the posterior column, and the combination of posterior and anterior-lateral approaches is a safe and effective way to have direct reduction and satisfactory fixation for such difficult tibian plateau fractures.

The reproducibility of classification of fractures of the proximal end of the humerus.

It is concluded that neither the Neer nor the AO/ASIF classification of fractures of the proximal end of the humerus is sufficiently reproducible to allow meaningful comparison of similarly classified fractures in different studies.
