Osteonecrosis is the main complication following Intracapsular fractures either with closed or open internal fixation
The treatment of malleolar fractures with accurate open reduction and stable internal fixation
applying AO method and principles was found to provide a high percentage of excellent and good results.
Tibial plateau fractures: open reduction internal fixation
The inpatient records of patients with Schatzker types V and VI tibial plateau fractures treated with open reduction and internal fixation
between February 2009 and March 2013 were searched from medical record section of the institution.
Comminuted intra-articular fracture of the distal radius: results of early open reduction and internal fixation
To treat established scaphoid nonunion in skeletally immature patients, several reports recommend surgical treatment with internal fixation
and bone grafting, because internal fixation
with a screw for the scaphoid does not interfere scaphoid maturation (Mintzer et al.
Advantages of rigid internal fixation
include avoidance of MMF, early functioning of the mandible, increased patient satisfaction, shorter periods of hospitalization, and earlier return to the workplace.
Thus, surgery in the form of open reduction and internal fixation
plus or minus bone grafting is rarely if ever indicated.
The patient was operated on and the tibial fracture was fixed using close reduction and internal fixation
with a plate and screws and the neck of femur was fixed using a hip compression screw with side plate and supplemental screw.
As a result of the uncertainty regarding the long-term results, open reduction and internal fixation
of the radial head has received more interest during the last decade especially for the treatment of displaced twofragment fractures.
The new osteosynthesis plate systems allow for internal fixation
using implanted anatomically preformed angle stable plates and polyaxial screw placements.
BME's focus on memory metal internal fixation
implants is changing the shape of orthopaedic medicine.
