Supracondylar humerus fractures in children – a retrospective study

Introduction. Supracondylar fracture of the humerus is the most common type of distal humeral fracture in children. Either operative or non-operative treatment depends on Gartland’s classification and neurovascular damage. There is still room for discussion on which Kirschner pin’s configuration should be chosen – crossed pinning or lateral pinning. Aim. Our study aimed to compare clinical results of treating supracondylar […]

Oxygen saturation measurement in dislocated supracondylar fractures in children

The goal of his study was to show that oxygen saturation measurement in the distal part of injured upper extremity is one of the best method to assess post-traumatic blood flow disturbances and the necessity for exploration of brachial artery in supracondylar fractures. 32 children, age 4-16, with Gartland’s displaced extension type III injuries and distal disruption of blood flow were treated […]

Types and treatment of distal humerus fractures in children

Introduction. The distal region of the humerus is the most common location of injuries – taking into account the entire humerus of the child. Errors made during their diagnosis and treatment are associated with the occurrence of complications. When analyzing and interpreting x-ray images, one should not forget about the presence of numerous ossification points of this region and the associated temporal […]

Analysis of complications resulting from femoral neck fracture treatment using Targon FN system

The study was aimed to assess the outcomes of the operative procedure applied in the patients with the femoral neck fracture, treated with the Targon FN system, manufactured by Aesculap, and identify relationships between the outcome of treatment of the femoral neck fracture, patient’s body mass, length of the period between the moment of injury and surgery, age of patient, prescribed medications.

Comminuted distal radius fracture managed by osteosynthesis with xenogenic bone graft – case report

Distal radius fractures are the most frequent fracture location among adults and make up to 17% of all cases. Most vulnerable are elderly women with poor bone quality. Over the years method of choise in supplementing bone defects was harvesting autogenic bone from iliac crest, although it in not always possible in patients suffering from osteoporosis. The presented case refers to female […]

Bilateral fracture of radial heads with dislocation treated surgically

Fracture of the radius is quite frequently observed within elbow joint. This pertains to nearly 20 per cent of acute traumas within elbow joint [2]. Isolated fracture of the radial head occurs in only less than 2 per cent of fractures [3]. Bilateral fracture of radial heads occurs most frequently as a component of severe, high-energy traumas of elbow joint but may […]

Periprosthetic femur fractures after surgery in clinical material

Introduction: Periprosthetic femur fractures after surgery account for 0.1-4%, and after revision – for 1.8-7.3% of THA complications. The diagnosis is usually not difficult. Risk factors: age, female, osteopenia, revision THA, endoprosthesis loosening, long time (over 10 years) after primary operation. Aim: In this work we present the methods of classification and treatment of post-surgery periprosthetic femur fracture based on the clinical […]
