The other group of twelve patients underwent ORIF. In this group, where 10 patients had congruous and 2 had incongruous reduction, radiological outcome was excellent in 8 of the 10 congruent reductions and was good in rest 2 (Table 1).
Physical examination at presentation revealed an awake, oriented, and cooperative patient with several skin lacerations in the right lower extremity and mid-lower back (Figure 1(a)), right leg open incision sites after fasciotomy (Figure 1(b)), a left thigh lateral incision site, and a left elbow posterior incision site after ORIF. There were signs of right eye infection (blepharatis) and right tibial wound infection suspected by erythema and purulent discharge.
Due to the severity of compartment syndrome, each patient who undergoes ORIF should be evaluated at that time for compartment syndrome.
The pelvis was stabilized with a binder by the orthopedic surgeons with subsequent emergency irrigation, debridement, and open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF) of the open ankle fracture as well as reduction of the left ankle dislocation.
Owing to all these facts, Open Reduction Internal Fixation (ORIF) is considered as the best mode of treatment for the fractures of shaft of Radius and Ulna, even if fractures are reduced closely
Percutaneous cancellous screw fixation was done in 8 cases, cancellous screw and bone grafting in 2 cases, ORIF with buttress plate and screws in 15 cases, ORIF with buttress plate and bone graft in 6 cases and ORIF with buttress plate and external fixator in one patient.
Treatment of periprosthetic fractures includes Open Reduction and Internal Fixation (ORIF) with plate, wire cerclage, bone graft, and stem revision prosthesis (5).
Murphy et al's study showed that the reoperation rate for nondisplaced fractures treated with fixation was 15% and for displaced fractures 38% after fixation and 7% after hemiarthroplasty; internal fixation and displacement were associated with increased reoperation rates; hemiarthroplasty resulted in fewer reoperations than internal fixation.15 Tidermark et al.16 studied 102 patients with displaced fracture of the femoral neck who treated either by open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF) or THR.
We only carry out ORIF (open reduction internal fixation) in particular indications when the specifications and pattern of the fractures, and the patient condition requires it, e.g., an urgent trauma situation.
Patient had history of bilaterally fractured condyles after a road traffic accident and had been treated by ORIF four years ago.
Nondisplaced fractures are commonly treated by conservative treatment; in contrast, displaced fractures are often treated by operations including open reduction internal fixation (ORIF), intramedullary device fixation, minimally invasive plate osteosynthesis (MIPO), or hemiarthroplasty [3].
A second CT scan demonstrated that one of the screws used in the process of ORIF at the level of C5 abutted on the esophagus and was compressing the vagus nerve when the patient was in the left lateral decubitus position (Figure 1).
