Clavicle (Collarbone) Fractures Treatment

Clavicle (collarbone) fractures are quite common injuries. If a clavicle fracture isn’t considerably displaced (moved) or angled (bent), then it can be treated in a sling for six weeks. For persons who do a lot of desk work, a ‘figure-8’ brace that leaves the arms free is most popular. If a clavicle fracture is shortened

Your thighbone (femur) is the strongest and longest bone in your body. As the femur is so strong, it often takes a lot of force to break it. Motor vehicle collisions, for instance, are the number one reason of femur fractures. The straight, long part of the femur is known as the femoral shaft. When

Optimal Recovery from Hip Fractures

A hip fracture is a break in the upper quarter of the thigh or femur bone. The extent of the break depends on the involved forces. The type of surgery used to treat a hip fracture is mainly based on the soft tissues affected and bones or on the level of the fracture. The surgeons

The tibia is the large shin bone situated between the ankle and the knee. The fracture occurred in this bone is treated with the help of Trauma implants such as locking head screw, locking head cancellous screw, locking dorsal distal radius L-plate, lateral tibia locking plate, locking anterolateral distal tibia plate and so on. This

Intramedullary Interlocking Nail

IM Nails or intramedullary rod are Orthopedic Implants used to align and stabilize fractures. Intramedullary rods are inserted into the bone marrow canal in the center of the long bones of the extremities. They may be used in the tibia (shin bone) and the femur (thigh bone), for example. They are also called intramedullary nails. These

Hip fractures are one of the most common kinds of broken bones, a broken hip is the most common reason why people require surgery for fracture above the age of 65. Unfortunately, this difficult problem usually affects the most vulnerable and frail patients. While some common orthopedic injuries occur in more vigorous, active persons, most

During sports activity, athletes often injure their wrist & hands because the hands often absorb impact. Such injuries may include the supporting tendons, ligaments, or bones. Skiers are vulnerable to an injury called skier’s thumb – a tear of the ulnar collateral ligament in the thumb’s large joint. This is likely to happen when the

Overview of Midshaft Clavicle Fracture

Clavicle fractures are very common and comprise 2.6% to 5% of all fractures in adults, with midshaft injuries accounting for almost 75% of all fracture types. Clavicle fractures typically occur when an axial load is applied to the bone, generally in the form of a sudden point load to the apex of the shoulder. When

Orthopedic Implants – Pros & Cons

It has now become easy to treat the serious bone problems with the beginning of technological developments and this became possible with modern orthopedic implants. Though some time back, diseases and bone fractures were not so common and were often seen in adults today the situation has changed. These issues are now troubling young players

Fibula Fractures

A fibula fracture refers to a break in the fibula bone. A forceful impact, such as landing after a high jump or any impact to the outer part of the leg, can cause a fracture. Even spraining or rolling an ankle puts stress on the fibula bone, which can lead to a fracture. Types of

The human skeleton made of 206 individual bones that perform various important functions, protection, movement, including support, storage of minerals, and formation of blood cells. To ensure that the skeleton retains its ability to perform these functions, and to reduce disfigurement and pain, bones that become fractured should be repaired promptly and properly. Typically, a


Understanding About Orthopedic Plates

Screw and plates fixation of fractures has undergone continual design modifications and improvements during recent years. Friedrich Pauwels for the first time defined and applied the tension band principle in nonunions and the fixation of fractures. This principle of engineering applies to the conversion of tensile forces to compression forces on the convex side of


Do You Know About Orthopedic Screws?

The helical thread screw is an important invention in Mechanical Engineering which converts angular motion to linear motion to transmit power or to develop large forces. Screws are complex tools with a four-part construction: head, thread, shaft, and tip. The head works as an attachment for the screw driver, which may be hexagonal, slotted, cruciate


Let Us Know About Cannulated Screws

Cannulated Screws are used in bone and joint surgery to repair the fracture and to secure artificial implants which can be used to replace part or whole of a joint. The main advantage of cannulated screws is that they can be inserted over a guide pin or guide wire. The diameter of the guide pin

At times, Orthopedic surgery is adopted as a treatment option for the musculoskeletal system, which mainly includes joints, bones, muscles, ligaments, and tendons of the body. Orthopaedic surgery specialists carry out different surgical and non-surgical treatments to remedy problems of the musculoskeletal system. The reasons for referral to a surgeon may differ from one person

Overview of Trauma Surgery

Treatment of injuries caused by an impact through surgical intervention is known as Trauma Surgery. A most common example is the treatment of a patient, who has sustained injuries in a car or vehicle accident and is brought to the Emergency ward, where a trauma surgeon is requisitioned for his treatment.  Trauma surgeons use Orthopedic
