Irreducible Volar DRUJ Dislocation with Distal Radius Fracture Dislocation.

Matthew T Gulbrandsen, Jill G Putnam, J Tracy Watson, Michael D McKee,

Background  Volar dislocations of the distal radioulnar joint (DRUJ) are rare and often missed during initial evaluation. Chronic dislocations and disability can occur when DRUJ dislocations are unrecognized and not reduced. DRUJ dislocations often occur with other wrist injuries, which may complicate reduction. Closed reduction can fail to reduce DRUJ ... Read more >>

Altering spacer material affects bone regeneration in the Masquelet technique in a rat femoral defect.

Sarah McBride-Gagyi, Zacharie Toth, Daniel Kim, Victoria Ip, Emily Evans, John Tracy Watson, Daemeon Nicolaou,

The Masquelet technique depends on pre-development of a foreign-body membrane to support bone regeneration with grafts over three times larger than the traditional maximum. To date, the procedure has always used spacers made of bone cement, which is the polymer polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA), to induce the foreign-body membrane. This study ... Read more >>

Controlled Compression Nailing for At Risk Humeral Shaft Fractures.

J Tracy Watson, Roy W Sanders,

Compression techniques seem to be the primary factor in determining the success of both plating and nailing techniques for the management of acute fractures and for delayed and nonunion management of these fractures. An intramedullary nail that can provide continual compression (like a plate) and mechanical manipulation of the callous ... Read more >>

Outcomes After Severe Distal Tibia, Ankle, and/or Foot Trauma: Comparison of Limb Salvage Versus Transtibial Amputation (OUTLET).

Michael J Bosse, David Teague, Lisa Reider, Joshua L Gary, Saam Morshed, Rachel B Seymour, James Toledano, Lisa K Cannada, Barbara Steverson, Daniel O Scharfstein, Jason Luly, Ellen J MacKenzie, ,

Severe foot and ankle injuries are complex and challenging to treat, often requiring multiple operations to salvage the limb contributing to a prolonged healing period. There is some evidence to suggest that early amputation for some patients may result in better long-term outcomes than limb salvage. The challenge is to ... Read more >>

Healing of fracture nonunions treated with low-intensity pulsed ultrasound (LIPUS): A systematic review and meta-analysis.

Ross Leighton, J Tracy Watson, Peter Giannoudis, Costas Papakostidis, Andrew Harrison, R Grant Steen,

Bone fractures fail to heal and form nonunions in roughly 5% of cases, with little expectation of spontaneous healing thereafter. We present a systematic review and meta-analysis of published papers that describe nonunions treated with low-intensity pulsed ultrasound (LIPUS).Articles in PubMed, Ovid MEDLINE, CINAHL, AMED, EMBASE, Cochrane Library, and Scopus ...

Evaluation of Fibular Fracture Type vs Location of Tibial Fixation of Pilon Fractures.

Gennadiy A Busel, J Tracy Watson, Heidi Israel,

<h4>Background</h4>Comminuted fibular fractures can occur with pilon fractures as a result of valgus stress. Transverse fibular fractures can occur with varus deformation. No definitive guide for determining the proper location of tibial fixation exists. The purpose of this study was to identify optimal plate location for fixation of pilon fractures ... Read more >>

An inception cohort analysis to predict nonunion in tibia and 17 other fracture locations.

Robert Zura, J Tracy Watson, Thomas Einhorn, Samir Mehta, Gregory J Della Rocca, Ze Xiong, Zhe Wang, John Jones, R Grant Steen,

<h4>Introduction</h4>The epidemiology of fracture nonunion has been characterized so it is potentially possible to predict nonunion using patient-related risk factors. However, prediction models are currently too cumbersome to be useful. We test a hypothesis that nonunion can be predicted with ≤10 variables, retaining the predictive accuracy of a full model ...

Bone fracture nonunion rate decreases with increasing age: A prospective inception cohort study.

Robert Zura, Mary Jo Braid-Forbes, Kyle Jeray, Samir Mehta, Thomas A Einhorn, J Tracy Watson, Gregory J Della Rocca, Kevin Forbes, R Grant Steen,

<h4>Background</h4>Fracture nonunion risk is related to severity of injury and type of treatment, yet fracture healing is not fully explained by these factors alone. We hypothesize that patient demographic factors assessable by the clinician at fracture presentation can predict nonunion.<h4>Methods</h4>A prospective cohort study design was used to examine ~2.5 million ...
