AbstractPurposeTo investigate if bone substitutes are strictly necessary to restore the vertebral body height and improve the clinical outcome, in patients with thoracolumbar or lumbar AO type A post-traumatic vertebral fractures, managed with balloon kyphoplasty combined with posterior screw and rod system.Methods105 patients with post-traumatic thoracolumbar spine fracture were recruited. At baseline, the patients underwent a CT and an MRI of the spine. Clinical evaluation was performed, using the Visual Analog Scale (VAS) and the Oswestry Disability Index (ODI), at baseline, 48  h after surgery, at 3-month follow-u...

Publication date: February 2018 Source:Orthopaedics & Traumatology: Surgery & Research, Volume 104, Issue 1, Supplement Author(s): C. Mazel, L. Ajavon Thoracolumbar malunion is the result of loss of correction, insufficient correction or even no correction (both in the frontal and sagittal planes) of a thoracolumbar fracture. The main causes are incorrect assessment of the fracture's complexity (burst fracture), its potential progression to kyphosis and associated disc or ligament damage. It can also be the result of a poorly conducted initial treatment. The types of malunion have changed over the years because of...

CONCLUSION: On time diagnosis of pancreatic trauma, especially in polytrauma patients, continues to remain a challenge for trauma surgeons. Main pancreatic duct injury is an important prognostic factor and the major one determining therapeutic approaches. Adequate surgical approaches decrease morbidity and mortality in pancreatic trauma.

Introduction: Approximately 25% of facial fractures involve the bony-orbit. Numerous techniques have been used to reconstruct orbital fractures. With advancing technology, new modalities that improve surgical accuracy whilst reducing perioperative morbidity are being utilised. Computed-tomography (CT) image-guided navigation is an approach that may prove useful for an Oral and Maxillofacial surgeon. It allows real-time intraoperative localization of critical skeletal landmarks utilizing a preoperative CT-scan.
