The upper end of the femur; It is the bone
structure that covers the femoral head, neck and 5 cm distal of the small
trochanter. Subtrochanteric femoral fractures make up 7% to 20% of femur
fractures. It occurs with high energy trauma at a young age and simple fall at
an advanced age.Trochanteric
fractures make up 55% of femoral upper end fractures and are mostly seen in
elderly, osteoporotic patients. As an alternative to existing fixation methods
for both trochanteric region and subtrochantanteric region fractures, locking
anatomic plates for proximal femur fractures have been designed.
Distal Radius end fractures;
It is the most common type of fracture in whole body bone fractures. They
constitute 8-15% of all fractures.
Approximately 10% of elbow
circumference fractures. The subcutaneous location of the ulna makes it
susceptible to trauma and fractures. Most of the olecranon fractures are formed
by the direct effect of trauma force on the proximal of the ulna from the
distal humerus or by pulling the proximal ulna of the triceps adhesion site
with an indirect effect.
Clavicle fractures; It constitutes 2.6-4% of adult fractures and 35% of shoulder fractures. Anatomically, it is divided into three regions as medial, middle (shaft) and lateral. The fracture site is approximately 80% in the middle, 15% lateral, and 5% medial.
Proximal Humerus fractures make up approximately 4-5% of all fractures. The incidence of proximal humerus fractures is also increasing due to the increase in the elderly population. It is the third most common fracture over the age of sixty-five.
TrueStar Compression Screws; It is the latest development in fully threaded headless screw fixation designed to facilitate the surgical technique in lower and upper extremity fracture, fusion and limb osteotomy fixation.Truemed Cannulated Screw System is designed for fixing fractures, fusions and osteotomies of large and small bones suitable for the size of the device.
Combined nail screw implants have a technically poor learning curve of up to 8-15% in unstable pertrochanteric fractures. However, early femoral shaft fractures are seen in only 1% of the gamma nails. Most of the technical problems are scraping, collapse (due to bad position or rotational potential). A new implant, PFN, has been developed by AO / ASIF to overcome such problems.
