Chapter
Malunions of the proximal tibia can occur despite modern techniques of fracture fixation. These can be intra-articular, extra-articular, or a combination of both. It can result from inadequate reduction of the joint, loss of joint reduction, and/or loss of the tibial plateau fracture reduction and fixation. This can occur due to various reasons att...
Chapter
Proximal femur fractures are among the most frequently encountered by orthopaedic surgeons. Due to the high forces around the proximal femur and the difficulty associated with treating many of these fracture patterns, malunions of the proximal femur can occur. While some proximal femur malunions cause severe functional limitations, a number of othe...
Chapter
Although the diagnosis of a malunion is fairly straightforward, the evaluation and management can be somewhat challenging. In both the upper and lower extremities, a malunion can result in severe functional problems. Due to the weight-bearing requirements of the lower extremity, malunions can lead to gait disturbances, low back pain, and even the d...
Chapter
Distal femur fractures represent a common complex traumatic pathology fraught with potential complications and reoperation rates in excess of 15%. In the course of treatment of distal femur fractures, eventual malunion complications can occur from iatrogenic causes, implant failure, patient noncompliance, or from the original severe fracture morpho...
Book
Providing a comprehensive presentation of the diagnosis, evaluation and management of malunions, this generously illustrated text details the current principles, surgical techniques and approaches with these challenging clinical situations. Since each malunion can be fairly specific, the treatment regimens provide guidelines to effectively approach...
Article
Negative-pressure wound therapy (NPWT) has been a major advance in the management of open wounds, especially in orthopedic trauma surgery. Due to the success of NPWT, surgeons began using NPWT on closed incisions as a way to help prevent surgical wound dehiscence, especially in at-risk patients for wound problems. It has been well established that...
Chapter
The management of nonunions can be very difficult. They have a significant impact on one’s function and can be debilitating. It requires a thorough understanding of the factors that can result in a nonunion. This includes patient factors as well as surgical factors. Nonunions can occur because of biological factors, mechanical factors, or both. Smo...
Chapter
Distal femoral nonunions, although rare, can be challenging to manage. No consensus exists as to the best way to manage these problems. Locked plating has become used routinely in the management of distal femur fractures and as such new problems have arisen. There has been an increase in the incidence of nonunions with the use of these implants. On...

Providing a comprehensive presentation of the diagnosis, evaluation and management of nonunions, this generously illustrated text details the current principles, surgical techniques and approaches with these challenging clinical situations. Since each nonunion can be fairly particular, the treatment regimens provide guidelines to effectively approa...
Article
Surgical site occurrences (SSOs) affect up to or over 25% of patients undergoing operative procedures, with the subset of surgical site infections (SSIs) being the most common. Commercially available closed incision negative pressure therapy (ciNPT) may offer surgeons an additional option to manage clean, closed surgical incisions. We conducted an...
Article
To compare the time required for proximal locking screw placement between a standard freehand technique and the navigated technique as well as to quantify the reduction in ionizing radiation exposure. A fresh-frozen cadaver model was used for 48 proximal interlocking screw procedures. Each procedure consisted of insertion of two anteroposterior loc...
Article
Radiation exposure to the patient has become an increasing problem in health care and has received attention in the media. The exposure to health care personnel is an issue as well. This article reviews radiation exposure caused by various devices used in the practice of orthopaedic surgery and the relative exposure to involved health care workers....

To prospectively compare the results, function, and complications of antegrade and retrograde femoral nailing for femoral shaft fractures. Prospective, randomized. Urban Level 1 trauma center. One hundred consecutive femoral shaft fractures. Fifty-four nails inserted retrograde and forty-six inserted antegrade. Ten-millimeter antegrade or retrograd...

Objective: To prospectively compare the results, function, and complications of antegrade and retrograde femoral nailing for femoral shaft fractures. Design: Prospective, randomized. Setting: Urban Level 1 trauma center. Patients: One hundred consecutive femoral shaft fractures. Fifty-four nails inserted retrograde and forty-six inserted antegrade....
Chapter
This book provides current expert recommendations on the diagnosis and treatment of all major disorders throughout orthopedics in the form of tabular summaries. Essential guidelines on each of the topics have been condensed into two pages of vital information, summarizing the main procedures in diagnosis and management of each disorder, to provide...
Book
Dr. James D. Heckman has worked with leading experts in the field to bring to you an integral source of information covering orthopedic trauma, sports medicine, pediatric orthopedics, foot and ankle injuries, the spine, tumors, and infections. Current Orthopedic Diagnosis and Treatment allows the clinician to find quick confirmation of the diagnosi...
Article
We created an experimental model to evaluate the effects of strain rate on the mechanism of combined cruciate ligament injuries in knee hyperextension. Using straight knee hyperextension to rupture the anterior and posterior cruciates, two strain rates (approximately 100% per second and 5400% per second) were applied to reproduce two clinical injur...
Article
Fracture-dislocations of the proximal part of the humerus that are characterized by displacement of the humeral head to a remote location are exceedingly uncommon. A review of the literature led to the identification of only four such injuries, and all involved intrathoracic displacement of the humeral head2,4-6. We report the case of a patient wh...
Article
The material properties of normal adult articular cartilage were determined in the femoral head and acetabulum of baboons, dogs, and bovines, and were compared with those of normal human hip cartilage. In situ creep and recovery indentation experiments were performed using an automated creep indentation apparatus. To curvefit the entire creep curve...
Article
Biphasic creep indentation methodology and an automated indentation apparatus were used to measure the aggregate modulus, Poisson's ratio, permeability, thickness, creep and recovery equilibrium times, and percentage of recovery of normal articular cartilage in 10 human hip joints. These properties were mapped regionally to examine the mechanical f...
Article
The Jones' fracture is defined as a transverse fracture of the proximal fifth metatarsal diaphysis within 1.5 cm of the tuberosity. It is classified radiographically as acute, delayed union and nonunion. Some orthopedists also have added a classification of stress fractures. The best form of treatment is based on the presence or absence of medullar...
