Development of a postoperative fistula is even less common (<0.2%) and usually presents as clear drainage externally from the surgical neck
Two-part surgical neck
, three-part fractures and four-part fractures were treated with percutaneous K-wire fixation or osseous sutures depending on the degree of comminution.
CT angiography (CTA) has emerged as a quick, reliable and accurate tool for evaluating these patients; (1, 5-7, 10, 23-27) the modality is highly accurate in diagnosing and excluding injuries requiring intervention, and it has been shown to significantly decrease nontherapeutic surgical neck
In the past 10-15 years surgeons all over the world have changed the classic approach of mandatory exploration of wounds involving the platysma into a selective conservative intervention policy, thus eliminating the risks of non-therapeutic surgical neck
The court noted that the estate's amended complaint alleges that "on or about April 25, 2008, while left unrestrained and unattended in the CCU, Alfredo Perez fell from his hospital bed and suffered a displaced fracture to the surgical neck
of the humerus of his left arm." The amended complaint further alleged that the hospital negligently allowed a dangerous condition on the premises to be created and/or supervise [the Decedent] by and through its agents and/or to supervise [the Decedent], and it knew or should have known that such conditions existed for a sufficient length of time in which to place [Hospital] on notice of the dangerous condition.
(6) The anterior motor branch of the axillary nerve was found to cross the surgical neck
at a predictable location relative to both the acromion and the greater tuberosity, and at the level of the raphe no other motor branches crossed to innervate the anterior head of the deltoid (Fig.
He had a minor incident that resulted in a fracture of the surgical neck
of his right femur.
Although a causal relationship between acquired athymia and immune dysregulation has yet to be established, thymectomies in patients younger than 3 months have been shown to result in lower numbers of circulating T cells and diminished responses to T-cell mitogens. Hence, preoperative imaging studies are recommended to verify the presence of mediastinal thymic tissue prior to surgical neck
In our study, maximum number of cases belong to Neer's 2-part surgical neck
of humerus fractures (24 out of 42 cases) followed by fracture dislocations (10 out of 42 cases) and 3-part fractures (8 out of 42 cases).
AO Type A fractures are unifocal, usually involving the greater tuberosity or surgical neck
and have no vascular interruption to the articular segment.
Group III is composed of surgical neck
angulation of greater than 45[degrees].
AIM OF THIS STUDY: To show our experience with early surgical neck
contracture release of patients with severe post burn contracture (PBC) of the neck under local anaesthesia to facilitate intubation and to determine effectiveness/safety of this technique.
