The purpose of this research study is to identify the benefits of a type of nerve block, called an erector spinae plane block (ESP), in the treatment of patients with multiple rib fractures and uncontrolled pain despite receiving current institutional standards of care.
Ankle fracture is one of most common bone fracture in Taiwan, although ankle fracture can be treated by surgical operation, local edema, pain and wound poor healing always is noted, according to the investigator's knowledge, no good therapeutic methods to treat mention-above symptoms until now. Helminthostachys zeylanica(L.)Hook, also called Dau-Di-U-Gon has anti-inflammation, calm down heat and detoxication, and anti-edema. People in Taiwan often uses Helminthostachys zeylanica(L.)Hook to treat bone and tendon pain, and its Ugonin component of Helminthostachys zeylanica(L.)Hook also is proved that has analgesia and ant-inflammation. Therefore, the purpose of the present study was to design a randomized, double-blind, controlled study to evaluate functional recovery effect of Helminthostachys zeylanica(L.)Hook after surgical operation in patients with ankle fracture.
This study aimed to determine the influence of ageing on the incidence and site of femoral fractures in trauma patients, by taking the sex, body weight, and trauma mechanisms into account.
Most Galeazzi fractures can be treated adequately with open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF) of the radius alone, but some will remain unstable at the DRUJ and require repair of the TFCC. The purpose of this anatomical and biomechanical study was to define and measure DRUJ dislocation, displacement and instability associated with the sequential sectioning of the different bands in the interosseous membrane (IOM) and TFCC in the simulation of a Galeazzi fracture. A correlation between the experimental results with the radiological measures will be made.
This is an observational and cross-sectional study on the height loss, kyphosis indicators, bone mineral density and vertebral fractures in Chinese postmenopausal women
The purpose of this study is to investigate the post-operative pain control in pediatric patients with closed lateral condyle fractures who undergo open reduction and percutaneous pinning. Patients will be randomized into one of two groups. Group 1 will receive an infraclavicular nerve block to the affected extremity by a fellowship trained pediatric anesthesiologist prior to surgery. Group 2 will undergo the Orthopaedic Institute of Children's (OIC) standard preoperative protocol. Post-operative pain management will be the same for both groups per standard protocol. Pain level will be assessed post-operatively using the Wong-Baker FACES scale and parents will be asked to fill out a questionnaire regarding their satisfaction with the surgery and pain control. Parents will also fill out a medication log until the patient no longer requires pain medication. All patients in both groups will receive standard oxycodone solution prescriptions post-operatively as per typical protocol. The duration of participation in the study is approximately 1 week and requires 2 visits (time of recruitment at surgery and 1st post-op visit). This study is being conducted in hopes of developing comprehensive pain management protocols to reduce opioid consumption after surgical fixations of displaced lateral condyle fractures if the study can show that patients are more satisfied and require less opioid medication when receiving preoperative regional anesthesia.
This study aims to evaluate the effect of bone marrow concentration on union of femoral shaft fracture by comparing clinical and imaging outcomes between patients receiving Intramedullary nail fixation with intraoperative bone marrow concentration and those receiving Intramedullary nail fixation only.
This prospective study addresses one of the most controversial topics in the treatment of cervical spine trauma: the management of type II odontoid process fractures in the elderly. It is the hypothesis that surgical treatment will result in improved functional outcome measures, neck pain and mortality rates as compared with nonsurgical management. Furthermore, it is hypothesized that surgical treatment of odontoid process fractures will limit hospital re-admissions and development of medical complications secondary to prolonged immobilization in a cervical orthosis and delayed surgery related to late fracture displacement, which are often associated with non-operative care. Additionally, data from this study will be useful in identifying patient-specific predictors of improved outcome which can be used to optimize treatment algorithms and more effectively counsel patients who sustain these injuries.
Proximal humeral fractures are common especially in the elderly population. The majority of these fractures are minimally displaced and may be treated non-operatively. There is however a controversy about which fractures that need surgery and randomised trials have not been able to show a clinically important advantage in patient reported outcome measures for those operated. The trend is therefore that also displaced and comminute fractures are treated non-operatively. There is however very little scientific support for how the non-operative treatment should be designed and performed. Therefore this prospective multicenter study is aiming at investigating the benefit of a four week immobilisation orthosis as compared to early range of motion exercises for those patients not assigned for surgery one week after the trauma.
Breast cancer is the most common cancer type in European women. Patients treated for early non-metastatic breast cancer comprise a growing group of survivors due to early diagnosis and improved treatment. Many of these survivors experience adverse effects such as decreased bone mineral density, derangement of metabolic markers (fat, glucose, insulin) and increased blood pressure. Increasing risk of bone fracture and cardiometabolic disease (eg. diabetes mellitus type 2). The purpose of this study is to identify mechanisms behind cardiometabolic changes that may be connected to the (neo-)adjuvant treatment. On top of this we hope to indentify potential biological markers that can help prevent development of metabolic disease. We will be recruiting 120 post-menopausal women age 50-70 with early breast cancer and 1-2 times a year for 5 years examine bone mineral density, body composition, glucose and fat metabolism and nerve damage. A questionnaire will be used to collect information on diet, physical activity and quality of life. Derudover anvendes spørgeskemaer til at indsamle information vedrørende. This new knowledge will help clinicians start adequate preventive measures to help patients avoid cardiometabolic disease secondary to cancer treatment.
