Fracture Of The Greater Tuberosity

Fracture Of The Greater Tuberosity: Mechanism Of Fracture This type of fracture occurs in the following cases of direct and indirect injury. In cases of a direct injury, the patient falls with the arm in an abducted position. Here, the force is transmitted in an upward direction along the humerus (the long bone in the


Ankle Arthrodesis

Humerus Fracture

A humerus fracture is a break of the humerus bone within the top arm. Symptoms may include pain, swelling, and bruising. Types for Humerus Fracture Shaft – The plating technique is used when indicated for the treatment of a fracture of the shaft of the humerus. Depending upon bone anatomy, a broad heavy-duty plate or

Tibia Fracture

In the case of tibial shaft fractures associated with a displaced intra-articular fracture of the knee and the ankle, plating is the most commonly adopted technique. The tibial plateau fracture and the tibial pilon fracture require accurate open reduction and fixation. Buttress plating is almost always necessary to support epiphyseal-metaphyseal fragments. Plating with Indirect reduction

PHMA Locking Plate 3.5 MM & 4.0 MM (Proximal Humeral Multi Angle) – Long

Plates have been used from very early times to fix the bones internally. The plates serve to maintain length, rotation, and angulation at the fracture. Initially, there were Sherman plates, which used self-tapping screws. Then came the Broad, Narrow and Small plates of A O type. They were used with compression devices to give a
