Arthroscopic reduction and internal fixation of tibial plateau fractures in skiing.
Open reduction and internal fixation with plating is considered one of the acceptable methods of treatment in Schatzker type V and type VI tibial plateau fractures.
We believe the additional goal should be the restoration of sternal stability to maintain physiologic function and decrease pain-associated morbidity using open reduction and rigid internal fixation of the sternum.
Fractures of the radial head treated by internal fixation: late results in 26 cases.
Nonunions of these fractures can sometimes be avoided by employing adequate internal fixation and meticulous soft tissue care in open fractures to avoid infection, he said.
In internal fixation, screws, nails, wires and plates are used to correct the fracture, and these devices remain inside the patient's body as long as no contraindications surface.
All are treated by open reduction and internal fixation with proximal tibial locking plate and screws, except in two cases additional postero-medial buttress plating was done.
Different treatment modalities available for the mandibular fractures include maxillo-mandibular fixation (MMF) using various techniques, MMF with non rigid fixation using trans-osseous wiring at superior or inferior border, external pin fixation, Open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF) using mini plates and lag screws (semi rigid fixation), Non compression and compression plates (rigid fixation)3.
Objective: To present our experience on intramedullary nailing device Sonoma Wrx (Sonoma Orthopedic Products Inc., Santa Rosa, CA, USA) used for internal fixation of extra-articular or simple intra-articular distal radius fractures in adult population.
Traditional treatment methods involving open reduction with internal fixation have been observed to have high rates of postoperative infections up to 14-16% [7-10].
Therefore, for displaced fractures, open anatomic reduction with internal fixation is essential to maximize the healing potential [8-10].
Group A had twenty five patients who underwent open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF) at two points.
