Small number of infections show that not only biochemical but also some other contributing factors are responsible for postoperative complications such as infection of mandible angle fracture after rigid internal fixation.
Cases with disrupted vessels and severe disocated fracture, infected wounds, applying pressure force by dentition, fracture of edentulous mandible or other pathological occlusion may reduce the reliability and outcome of internal fixation.
Table 1--Demographic of femoral fracture of 471 patients.
The aim of this study was to identify the prevalence of different types of femoral fractures post-MVA at the National Guard Hospital in Riyadh, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia from November 2007 to December 2013.
We thought that this complication can be decreased by surgical experience, appropriate technique, and careful follow-up.17,18 LLD is a known and unavoidable complication of elastic intramedullary nailing that is performed to pediatric femur shaft fractures. LLD is associated with age, sex, fracture type, fracture type.
There was no statistically significant difference between the fracture site and LLD (p 0.156).
The patients who showed delayed healing based on clinical (tenderness at fracture site) and radiological findings (persistent fracture line on x-ray) for at least six weeks after initial treatment with static interlocking nailing and fulfilling other inclusion criteria were recruited after taking the informed consent.
X-rays were done before the procedure to determine the screws which were removed that is screw away from the fracture site.
We conducted this study on 130 diagnosed cases of pelvic fracture. We studied that incidence of pelvic fracture was more in females, 81 (62.3%) compared to males 49 (37.7%).
In our study most common site of pelvic fractures observed was in the pubis, about 88 cases (67.7%) followed by ilium 83 (63.8%), ischium 61 (46.9%), sacrum 21 (16.2%) and multiple pelvic ring fracture in 23 (17.8%) cases.
The objectives of the case review were to determine (1) whether fractographic features are readily identifiable in more complex trauma scenarios, and (2) whether the fractographic analysis corresponds to the traditional anthropological fracture pattern analysis.
The imaging logging analysis results point out that fractures are concentrated in the 2-5 strips/m, followed by 0.4-0.6 strips/m, with the overwhelming majority fracture density corresponding to a medium value < four strips/m.
The study, presented at the Annual Meeting of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons 2018, included 100 children between three to 15 years of age, diagnosed with low-energy forearm fractures.
Statin therapy and risk of fracture: Results from the JUPITER randomized clinical trial.
The fracture depth, fracture angle, permeability coefficient ratio, and fracture density are simulated by the following methods [20-22]: (1) a solid element is established equivalent to a fracture in the model, and a fracture is defined as another material different from the colluvial soil; (2) to simulate the distribution of fractures by changing the length, angle, and spacing of the established fracture solid element; (3) the anisotropy of the fracture unit is simulated by defining the ratio ([mu]) of the permeability coefficient ([k.sub.'y]) along the direction of fracture and the permeability coefficient ([k'.sub.x]) in the direction of vertical fracture.
