Introduction Given the absence of a satisfying plate system to deal with multifragmentary or subcapital distal ulnar fractures, the Distal Ulna Locking Plate (DUL, I.T.S. GmbH, Graz, Austria) could become a useful treatment option. This study aimed to evaluate the results of this anatomically pre-contoured plate regarding patients with unstable or...

The aim of this study was to evaluate the mid-term results of surgically treated scaphoid fractures since we were concerned that good results might deteriorate over time due to osteoarthritis or functional impairment. Thirty-three out of 121 surgically treated patients (isolated scaphoid fractures n = 23; scaphoid fractures with concomitant injurie...

Introduction Several methods treating proximal interphalangeal joint (PIP) fracture dislocations have been established providing early joint mobilization. The aim of this study was to evaluate the clinical and radiological outcome of unstable fracture dislocations of the PIP treated with a parabolic dynamic external fixator consisting of two Kirsch...

Objective: The purpose of this study was to retrospectively correlate the kinematic dynamic rotation MRI (DR-MRI) of the wrist for assessment of extensor carpi ulnaris (ECU) tendon subluxation and dislocation. Material and methods: The presence of an ECU tendon subluxation or dislocation on the DR-MRI report was correlated to findings of the sur...

Objective: Anesthesiologic method with low bleeding level, risk level, and complication rate for surgical procedures on the hand without a tourniquet on an unsedated patient with the possibility for functional testing during surgery. Indications: Surgical procedures of the hand can be carried out using the wide awake technique depending on the p...

... Additionally, the patients had to be aged 65 years or older and living at home performing activities of daily living independently. Surgical treatment was based on the technique described by Herzberg et al. [12,21]. A longitudinal incision was made dorsally in line with the third metacarpal bone (Fig. 1a). ...
... Moreover, soft-tissue adhesions is a common complication after traditional open methods, while the less-invasive mini-internal fixation hardware are costly [6]. Dynamic external fixators (DEFs) were introduced by many authors as an alternative fixation method that fulfils the requirements of ideal treatment [7][8][9][10][11][12]. Nevertheless, commercially used external fixation devices are not readily available, expensive and need considerable amount of expertise in their application. ...
... e participant with TFCC injury described in Section 2 was invited to participate in the auxiliary device design evaluation experiment to image the wrist tissue. MRI was conducted with the participant in a prone position [23] with the trouble-side arm extended, while the rest of the body was held still (Figure 7). e experimental process of the participant with TFCC injury MRI-adjuvant design was used as the test group and that without the designed adjuvant as the control group. ...
... Nowadays, it is frequently performed under WALANT (wideawake local anesthesia with no tourniquet). This local anesthesia technique is associated not only with high patient satisfaction but also with low complication rates, less postoperative pain and absence of postoperative nausea and vomiting (PONV) [1,2,3,4,5,6]. Patients are even able to return home unaccompanied after their operation, as there is no impairment of consciousness or activity with WALANT [2,3,4]. ...
