International Archives of Orthopaedic Surgery is an international, open access, peer review journal focusing on the keen areas of surgery concerned with injuries and conditions that affect the musculoskeletal system. The journal publishes selective publications after a stringent peer review process scrutinized by editorial and review experts. The journal covers with most of the common orthopedic procedures such as musculoskeletal trauma, spine diseases, infections, tumors, sports injuries, degenerative diseases, and congenital disorders.

The study cohort included fourteen male and seven female patients who presented to our hospital setting with an infected nonunion of the diaphysis of the radius or ulna. Every patient had a minimum of 2-year follow-up. The average patient age was 35.3 years (range 21-45). Thirteen patients had initially fractured both the radius and ulna. six patients had an isolated radius fractures, and two patients had fracture ulna alone. All patients underwent a protocol that combines aggressive surgical de...

Meticulous documentation in clinical records has been shown to improve patient care and clinician performance. Conversely, poor documentation is associated with an increased risk of adverse events. The Royal College of Surgeons (RCS) issues guidance on the contents of surgical admissions documentation. Audit highlighted frequent omission of key criteria set out by RCS with freehand documentation. We set out to design, implement, and evaluate an orthopaedic admission proforma for our trauma patie...

Work done for the purpose of analysis of the dependence of the pace of age-related decline in speed of cerebral blood flow and functional status of the musculoskeletal system of different groups of patients. Investigated the blood flow velocity (FV) in middle cerebral arteries (MCA) during the function of the muscle samples from subjects of different age 12 groups (214 people): Healthy individuals, patients with fractures of the extremities and congenital shortening of the tibia in the treatment...

Pertrochanteric fractures count among the most frequent fractures in elderly persons but their vascular complications are rare. We present two cases of pseudoaneurysm following internal fixation for pertrochanteric fractures in relatively young patients aged 67 and 68-years-old. The post-operative follow up was marked by the onset of a pulsatile swelling in the inner thigh. The diagnosis of pseudoaneurysm of the deep femoral artery was made by arterio-venous Doppler-ultrasound and CT-angiography...

Loeys-Dietz Syndrome (LDS) is a rare autosomal dominant connective tissue disorder. Patients with this disorder have mutations in several genes which encode for Transforming Growth Factor-Beta Receptor. This genetic mutation causes patients to have low bone mineral density, usually resulting in osteoporotic-like fractures. Stress fractures are rarely reported in patients with LDS. We report a case of stress fracture in a patient with LDS, discuss the management of this patient and provide a brie...

Open fractures present a significant challenge to the patient and his family and the managing surgeons. Open fracture often results from high energy injuries such as road traffic crashes, gunshot injuries, falls from heights and high-speed sports. Open fractures are associated with life-threatening and limb threatening injuries and are often associated with complications such as infection, malunion, and non-union. Controversies abound in the patt...

The size, structure, and role of the femur make it a major load bearing bone in the body. Fractures of the femur present with varied patterns in aetiology, treatment modality and outcome. Fracture of the femur usually follows significant trauma which often can be life-threatening particularly in young persons. Even in the elderly, the consequence of fractured femur can be life-threatening. This study aims to evaluate the pattern of presentation o...

The aim of our study was to examine both age and gender-related alterations in collagen expression of the transverse carpal ligament (TCL) in patients with idiopathic carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS). Resected TCLs were collected from 10 patients undergoing open carpal tunnel decompression. These were randomly divided equally into two groups of five patients, with equal numbers of men (average age 49.6) and women (average age 57.4). Histological stai...

In spite of the large variety of different techniques available for their treatment, acetabular fractures still pose a formidable challenge to the orthopedic surgeon, with a close relationship having been observed between degree of reduction, radiological findings and clinical results. The purpose of this manuscript is to introduce a technical enhancement that can be resorted to following exposure of the acetabular dome when using a modified Stop...

The research demonstrates a novel three-dimensional finite element analysis to analyze biomechanical changes in a femur with implant. The method uses principal stress projections to determine trabeculae trajectories in the femur. Visual comparisons of the projections of the femurs show areas of cortical and cancellous changes due to changes in tensile and compressive stresses, revealing areas of stress shielding. The method also includes a bone r...

Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) is a common neuropathy encountered in orthopedics. It results from compression of the distal median nerve (MN) within the carpal tunnel. Characteristic complaints of CTS are numbness, paresthesia, and pain in the hand and fingers, often exacerbated at night. This characteristic MN compression results in various degrees of disability. In recent years, elucidation of the pathological condition has progressed; however, t...
