Article
Background: Femoral neck fractures are common and are frequently treated with internal fixation. A major disadvantage of internal fixation is the substantially high number of conversions to arthroplasty because of nonunion, malunion, avascular necrosis, or implant failure. A clinical prediction model identifying patients at high risk of conversion...
Article
Purpose To identify predictors of a true scaphoid fracture among patients with radial wrist pain following acute trauma, train 5 machine learning (ML) algorithms in predicting scaphoid fracture probability, and design a decision rule to initiate advanced imaging in high-risk patients. Methods Two prospective cohorts including 422 patients with rad...
Article
Purpose The decision to continue immobilization of a nondisplaced scaphoid waist fracture is often based on radiographic appearance (despite evidence that radiographs are unreliable and inaccurate for diagnosing scaphoid union 6–12 weeks after fracture) and fracture tenderness (even though it is influenced by cognitive biases on pain). This may res...

Background and purpose: Humeral shaft fractures are often associated with radial nerve palsy (RNP) (8-16%). The primary aim of this systematic review was to assess the incidence of primary and secondary RNP in closed humeral shaft fractures. The secondary aim was to compare the recovery rate of primary RNP and the incidence of secondary RNP betwee...
Article
Background: Risk stratification of individual patients who are prone to infection would allow surgeons to monitor high-risk patients more closely and intervene early when needed. This could reduce infection-related consequences such as increased health-care costs. The purpose of this study was to develop a machine learning (ML)-derived risk-strati...

IntroductionThe reported rate of subsequent surgery after intramedullary nailing (IMN) of tibial shaft fractures (TSFs) is as high as 21%. However, most studies have not included the removal of symptomatic implant in these rates. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the subsequent surgery rate after IMN of TSFs, including the removal of sympto...

Objectives: To assess the effectiveness of suprapatellar (SP)-nailing versus infrapatellar (IP)-nailing of tibia fractures in terms of anterior knee pain, complications (retropatellar chondropathy, infection and malalignment) and physical functioning as well as quality of life. A clinical question-driven and thorough systematic review of current li...

Background Intramedullary nailing of tibial shaft fractures has been common practice for decades. Nevertheless, complications occur frequently, and subsequent surgery is often required. To improve our understanding on how we may improve trauma care for patients with tibial shaft fractures, this study systematically reviewed all currently available...
Article
Background: Intramedullary (IM) nailing is the treatment of choice for most tibial shaft fractures. However, an iatrogenic pitfall may be rotational malalignment. The aims of this retrospective analysis were to determine (1) the prevalence of rotational malalignment using postoperative computed tomography (CT) as the reference standard; (2) the av...
Article
Objectives: To develop an accurate machine learning (ML) predictive model incorporating patient, fracture, and trauma characteristics to identify individual patients at risk of an (occult) PMF. Methods: Databases of 2 studies including patients with TSFs from 2 Level 1 trauma centers were combined for analysis. Using ten-fold cross-validation, 4...
Article
Objective The objective of this systematic review is to provide an overview of all interpretations of the definition of the watershed line used in literature. Methods The Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-analysis (PRISMA) guidelines were followed for this review. A comprehensive search was performed for definitions of the w...
Article
Objectives: 1) Evaluate the incidence of posterior malleolar fractures (PMF) in patients with tibial shaft fractures (TSF) using advanced imaging; 2) identify predictors for patients at risk for an (occult) PMF; and 3) describe PMF characteristics to guide "malleolus-first" fixation. Design: Retrospective diagnostic imaging study. Setting: Lev...
