Biomechanical Analysis of Pedicle Screw Fixation for Thoracolumbar Burst Fractures

By |2020-07-27T15:51:05+00:00May 1st, 2016|

Publication: Orthopedics Date: May 2016 Authors: McDonnell M, Shah KN, Paller DJ, Thakur NA, Koruprolu S, Palumbo MA, Daniels AH Link to Full Text Abstract Treatment of unstable thoracolumbar burst fractures remains controversial. Long-segment pedicle screw constructs may be stiffer and impart greater forces on adjacent segments compared with short-segment constructs, which may affect clinical performance [...]

By |2020-07-27T14:32:07+00:00August 1st, 2014|

Publication: The Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery Date: August 2014 Authors: Hsu RY, Lareau CR, Kim JS, Koruprolu S, Born CT, Schiller JR Link to Full Text Abstract BACKGROUND: Closed reduction and percutaneous pinning of a pediatric supracondylar fracture of the humerus requires operating directly next to the C-arm to hold reduction and perform [...]

Locking buttons increase fatigue life of locking plates in a segmental bone defect model

By |2020-07-17T10:54:16+00:00March 1st, 2013|

Publication: Clinical Orthopaedics & Related Research Date: March 2013 Authors: Tompkins M, Paller DJ, Moore DC, Crisco JJ, Terek RM Link to Full Text Abstract BACKGROUND: Durability of plate fixation is important in delayed union. Although locking plates result in stronger constructs, it is not known if locking affects the fatigue life of a plate. [...]

A three-dimensional comparison of intramedullary nail constructs for osteopenic supracondylar femur fractures

By |2020-07-17T14:54:58+00:00February 1st, 2013|

Publication: Journal of OrthopaedicTrauma Date: February 2013 Authors: Paller DJ, Frenzen SW, Bartlett CS 3rd, Beardsley CL, Beynnon BD Link to Full Text Abstract OBJECTIVES: This study developed a new 6 degree-of-freedom, unconstrained biomechanical model that replicated the in vivo loading environment of femoral fractures. The objective of this study was to determine whether various [...]
