Abstract

Objective: to evaluate the results of (Modification of Russe method) in treatment of nonunion fracture scaphoid bone by bone graft with external splintage (plaster of paris cast (pop ).Methods:Prospective study done on 26 patients (24 male, 2 female), age range between 25-42 years (mean age 34 years), fracture site at middle 1/3 with minimal displacements with no carpal bone or radial bone injury, technique of Matte- Russe method (explore the bone through volar approach using bone graft from iliac crest (cortico-cancellous peg plus cancellus bone) with thumb spica for 90 days with period of follow up 12-18 months.Results: out of 26 patients treated by this method , 23 patients (88.5%) union was achieved radiologically by the end of 3rd month &progressed over the next 3 months, range of motion of the wrist & power of grip increased gradually became almost comparable to the normal side by the end of sixth month , 5-7 degrees loss of dorsiflexion was residual in 6 patients . Three patients (11.5%) did not show union radiolgically after sixth postoperative month, their local symptoms were better than before surgery ,they were not keen to have another operation .No complications were noticed, wound healed well ,patient tolerance was goodConclusion: the use of cancellous bone graft with plaster of paris (p.o.p.) splint is less demanding surgically& less coasty and resulted in good results(88.5% healed well ).we recommend this treatment as a method for treating nonunion of carpal scaphoid bone .Key wards: nonunion, scaphoid , bone graft , plaster of paris

Abstract

ABSTRACTBackground: Humans have three different types of hair. Hair growth is a complex process that requires a rich supply of oxygen and nutrients provided by the capillaries that supply the active base of the hair.Objective: To present abnormal growth of hair post prolong immobilization with plaster of Paris.Material and methods: This report is a case series study carried out in Mosul teaching hospital, during the period between (30 Jan 1999 - 30 Sep 2011). The total number of patients treated for developmental dysplasia of the hip (DDH) were 213 patients treated by open reduction), immobilized by plaster of Paris for a period (8 - 16 weeks). Age ranged between (12-48 months) with mean (24.6 months). Females were 164 (77%) and 49 (23%) were males. Results: Patients followed post operatively, abnormal hair growth at the lower limbs was noticed, and hair changes were disappeared completely within 4-6 months. Conclusion: Hypertrichosis is transient, physicians should be aware of its benign nature as it relates to cast immobilization. Keywords: Hypertrichosis, lower limbs, DDH, plaster of Paris.

الخلاصةالخلفية: للإنسان ثلاثة أنواع من الشعر. نمو الشعر عملية معقدة وتتطلب تزويد عالي بالأوكسجين والمواد الغذائية من خلال الأوعية الدموية الشعرية التي تزود قاعدة الشعر الفعالة.الأهداف: لتقديم ظاهرة نمو الشعر غير الطبيعي بعد للإستخدام الطويل لمادة الجبسونا في تثبيت الأطراف.المرضى وطرق العمل: هذه الدراسة هي دراسة حالات متسلسلة, أجريت في مستشفى الموصل التعليمي خلال الفترة بين 30 كانون الثاني 1999م و 30 أيلول 2011 م. العدد الكلي للمرضى الذين عولجوا لتعديل خلع مفصل الورك الولادي كان 213 مريضا بطريقة فتح المفصل جراحيا, وأعقب الجراحة تثبيت المفصل بإستخدام مادة الجبسونا لفترة 8-16 أسبوع. أعمار المرضى تتراوح بين 12- 48 شهرا بمعدل 24,6 شهر, كان منهم (164) أنثى و (49) ذكر.النتائج: المرضى تمت متابعتهم بعد العملية حيث لوحظ نمو شعر غير طبيعي في الأطراف السفلى, وتغييرات الشعر هذه إختفت بشكل تلقائي وكامل بين (4 – 6) أشهر.الاستنتاج: أن نمو الشعر غير الطبيعي بعد إستخدام مادة الجبسونا هو مؤقت وهو غير مدعاة لقلق الأطباء كونه حميد في طبيعته ومؤقت ومرتبط بإستخدام مادة الجبسونا.

Abstract

Background: Open fractures are surgical emergencies that perhaps should be thought of as incomplete amputations. Many eras of its treatment had elapsed. Compound fracture shaft of tibia is common and important one and it is very important to choose the best way to manage and declare the advantages and disadvantages of each modalityObjectives: The purpose of this study is to determine whether plaster of Paris or external skeletal fixator is more suitable for use in the fixation of compound fracture shaft of tibia.Patient and methods: Fifty patients (52 legs) with compound fracture shaft of tibia were subjected to a prospective comparative study. Each patient was managed by using plaster of Paris or external skeletal fixator and followed up to record complications accompanying these two methods. Results: With plaster of Paris we got the following complications; wound infection occurred in 26.7% of the injuries, Compartment Syndrome in 6.7%, Re displacement in 16.7%, Joint stiffness in 13.3%, Nonunion in 10%, Re fracture in 3.3%, and Plaster breakdown in 33.3% of the injuries. With external skeletal fixator we got the following complications; Wound infection occurred in 27.2% of the injuries, Compartment Syndrome in 4.5%, Re displacement in 9%, Joint stiffness in 22.7%, Nonunion in 18.1%, Re fracture in 9%, Pin tract infection in 54,5%, and Pin loosening in 13.6%.Conclusions: Several complications accompanied the use of plaster of Paris or external skeletal fixator; some of them are common for both and some are specific to each. So there is no much difference in using these two modalities in the fixation of such fracture regarding these complications and the preference of one on the other will depend on other factors.

Abstract

Background and objective: Tibial diaphyseal fracture is of two types, closed fracture, in which the skin is intact and open fracture in which the skin is injured. An open fracture is a type of fracture in which a break in the skin and underlying soft tissues communicates with the fracture and its haematoma .i.e. the fracture and its haematoma communicates with external environment. Our aim is to evaluate the treatment outcome of this structured protocol in terms of soft tissue injury healing and effective fracture stabilization by POP and external fixation, and to detect if there is any difference in time needed for union in both methods.Methods: This is a comparative study done in Emergency hospital in Erbil – Kurdistan region, for management of open tibial diaphyseal fractures caused by gunshot injuries. The study included 50 patients of 18 to 65 years old. Patients were divided into two groups after debridment according to methods of treatment; group 1 was managed by POP, group 2 was managed by external fixation. The patients recruited and treated over 11 month period (August 2007 to June 2008).Results: The study included 50 patients; 44 males (88%) and six females (12%). Their ages ranged between 18 years and 65 years with the mean age of 27.46 years. Patients divided into three groups according to Gustilo classification: GI included 8 patients (16%), GII included 34 patients (68%) and GIII included 8 patients (2A, 6B) (16%). There was significant difference between immobilization of open tibial diaphyseal fractures by pop and external fixation (P=0.001).Conclusion: There will be delay union of the fractures when immobilized by external fixation. It is better to remove external fixature after 6 weeks and replace it by another method of immobilization of the fracture. Treatment of type III fracture is very difficult and needs long time, usually more than one year.
