Introduction: The Lower Extremity Measure (LEM) was developed to provide a specific instrument to detect changes in physical function in patients with hip fracture. Of 29 questions, 3 have a valid "not applicable" answer option. The goal of this study was to validate the LEM in German and to determine the added value to the physical functioning (p...
Article
Purpose Asian patients with osteoporosis suffer from an increased incidence of hip fracture and a potentially increased risk of fixation failure due to anatomical differences compared to Caucasians. To cope with these differences, an Asian size- and geometry-adapted Proximal Femoral Nail Antirotation (PFNA-II) was developed. The objective of this p...

Introduction The documentation of complications is critical for the evaluation of therapeutic interventions in orthopedics. However, there is a lack of accepted methodological standardization and definitions. We propose a concept to support the consensus development of a standardized management and classification of complications in clinical resear...
Article
Full-text available
In Japan, only few cross-culturally adapted, internationally used orthopaedic patient self-assessed outcome scores are available. In addition, the high incidence of knee osteoarthritis (OA) suggests the need for validated outcome measures such as the widely used Knee Injury and Osteoarthritis Outcome Score (KOOS) for Japanese populations. The purpo...
Article
The aim of this international AO-study was to compare the functional outcome after open versus closed treatment of mandibular condylar neck fractures. A prospective comparative study with two follow-ups (FU) at 8-12 weeks and 1 year was undertaken in two clinics, which exclusively privileged either surgical or conservative treatment due to differen...

Full-text available
With an ever-increasing elderly population, orthopaedic surgeons are faced with treating a high number of fragility fractures. Biomechanical tests have demonstrated the potential role of osteoporosis in the increased risk of fracture fixation complications, yet this has not been sufficiently proven in clinical practice. Based on this knowledge, two...

Zusammenfassung Osteoporose verursacht nicht nur Frakturen – sie erschwert auch deren Behandlung. Die gleichen Faktoren, die die Frakturentstehung begünstigen (rarefizierte Knochenmikroarchitektur, ausgedünnte Kortikalis sowie weitere Osteoporoserisikofaktoren), erschweren auch deren traumatologische Behandlung. Allerdings wird davon ausgegangen, d...

Osteoporosis not only induces fractures, but makes their treatment more difficult. The same factors that promote the occurrence of fractures (rarefaction of bone micro-architecture and cortical thinning, as well as further osteoporosis risk factors) also complicate their traumatological treatment. However, it is assumed that fractures in osteoporos...
