Article: [Imaging diagnose and clinical meaning for easy neglect occult posterior pelvic ring injury].[show abstract] [hide abstract]
ABSTRACT: To study the value of imaging diagnose and clinical meaning for easy neglect occult posterior pelvic ring injury. From Jan. 2003 to Jan. 2008, 178 patients with trauma of pelvic ring were reviewed. Routine AP view of pelvic computed radiographs (CR), axial, sagittal, coronal and curve multiplanar reconstruction CT (MPR) were performed. Spiral CT, slice thickness 3 mm,was carried out in all patients. There were 17 patients (11 males, 6 females, aged 19 to 71 years, mean 34.5 years) with obturator foramen aera fracture obviously but suspecting fracture or normal in posterior pelvic ring in AP view, which had imperceptible fracture changes in MPR. Routine radiographs and CT images studies and clinical physical examination correlation were evaluated retrospectively by anatomical region and classified using the Young-Burgess classification, Tile and AO classification. In the remaining 17 patients with suspected fracture or normal in posterior pelvic ring, 5 cases of Denis I type of sacral fracture, 5 cases of Denis II type, 2 cases of Denis III type, 1 case of sacroilliac joint dislocation, 4 cases of sacral combined with posterior illiac fracture were diagnosed by MPR. Pelvic fracture categories were derived by adapting the Young-Burgess pelvic fracture classification scheme: lateral compression (LC) I and II, anteroposterior compression (APC) I. By adapting the Tile and AO classification schemes, the fracture were B1 and B2 type seperately. From the mechanism of trauma and assessment of pelvic stability point view, 15 cases were internal rotational unstability by lateral compression force, 2 cases were external rotation unstability by anteroposterior force. The omitted rate of posterior pelvic ring was 11% (17 of 128) by routine AP view of CR. 4D imaging reconstruction technique of spiral CT could detect all type of pelvic ring fractures (100%). MPR CT could detect imperceptible fractures not been seen on AP view of CR of posterior pelvic ring and visualized sacral fractures better than the axial source images. MPR CT is accurate and reliable in occult posterior pelvic ring fracture for correct fracture detection and classification and guide therapeutic decision-making in patients with pelvic ring trauma.Zhongguo gu shang = China journal of orthopaedics and traumatology 12/2008; 21(11):810-3.
Article: [Percutaneous lag screw internal fixation of LX technique for the sacroiliac joint injury].[show abstract] [hide abstract]
ABSTRACT: To study the percutaneous lag screw internal fixation of LX technique for sacroiliac joint diseases or injuries. There were 38 patients (25 male and 13 female) with an average age of 35.6 years ranged from 18 to 59 years. Among them, thirty-one cases with trauma of Tile B type, five cases with sacroiliitis and two cases with sacral cystis degeneration. There were 11, 15, 5 cases of Tile B1, B2, B3 type respectively. Pelvic anterior-posterior radiography and spiral computed tomography (CT) were undertaken for all patients. Axis planar, coronal planar, sagittal planar and curve planar of sacral reconstruction of spiral CT images were obtained for every patient. There were 28 cases with delitescence posterior ring injury. All these patients were performed percutaneous lag screw fixation procedures of LX technique under epidural anesthesia. Localization with spiral CT guidance was performed by the radiologist using spiral CT followed by the orthopaedic surgeon. Percutaneous fusion of sacroiliac joint was performed for seven patients who suffered from sacroiliac joint diseases. The blood loss were from 25 to 70 ml (means 36 ml) during operation. All patients were followed up for 3 to 39 months (means 15.6 months). There were no postoperative complications such as infection, fracture nonunion, iatrogenic injuries of nerve and blood vessel, breakage and slippage of fixtors. According to the evaluation of pelvic injuries, the results of imageology were excellent in 34 cases and good in 4, the results of clinical were excellent in 32 and good in 6. Percutaneous lag screw internal fixation of LX technique minimizes operation injury during a short procedure with few subsequent complications and allows early mobilization of the patients. That is an ideally safe and effetive operation technique for the sacroiliac joint diseases and injuries.Zhongguo gu shang = China journal of orthopaedics and traumatology 12/2008; 21(11):814-7.
