Contribution of the medial malleolus to tibiotalar joint contact characteristics

By |2020-07-27T16:51:11+00:00February 1st, 2015|

Publication: Foot & Ankle Specialist Date: February 2015 Authors: Lareau CR1, Bariteau JT2, Paller DJ2, Koruprolu SC2, DiGiovanni CW2 Link to Full Text Abstract BACKGROUND: Isolated medial malleolus fractures are typically treated operatively to minimize the potential for articular incongruity, instability, nonunion, and posttraumatic arthritis. The literature, however, has not clearly demonstrated inferior outcomes with [...]

Is distal locking of long nails for intertrochanteric fractures necessary? A clinical study

By |2020-07-27T14:21:37+00:00December 1st, 2014|

Publication: Journal of Clinical Orthopaedics and Trauma Date: December 2014 Authors: Vopat BG, Kane PM, Truntzer J, McClure P, Paller D, Abbood E, Born C Link to Full Text Abstract BACKGROUND: Few clinical studies have examined the utility of distal interlocking nails when fixing intertrochanteric fractures with intramedullary devices. In this study we performed a [...]

A biomechanical comparison of locked and unlocked long cephalomedullary nails in a stable intertrochanteric fracture model

By |2020-07-27T14:28:12+00:00December 1st, 2014|

Publication: Journal of orthopaedic trauma Date: December 2014 Authors: Kane P, Vopat B, Paller D, Koruprolu S, Daniels AH, Born C Link to Full Text Abstract OBJECTIVES: This study compared the torsional properties of stable intertrochanteric femur fractures in a cadaveric bone model using 2 different distal fixation strategies: unlocked long cephalomedullary nailing versus dynamically [...]

A biomechanical evaluation of locked plating for distal fibula fractures in an osteoporotic sawbone model

By |2020-07-27T13:22:50+00:00March 1st, 2014|

Publication: Foot & Ankle Surgery Date: March 2014 Authors: Bariteau JT, Fantry A, Blankenhorn B, Lareau C, Paller D, Digiovanni CW Link to Full Text Abstract BACKGROUND: Supination external rotation (SER) injuries are commonly fixed with a one third tubular neutralization plate. This study investigated if a combination locked plate with additional fixation options was [...]

Biomechanical evaluation of mini-fragment hardware for supination external rotation fractures of the distal fibula

By |2020-07-17T15:10:35+00:00April 1st, 2013|

Publication: Foot & Ankle Specialist Date: April 2013 Authors: Bariteau JT, Blankenhorn BD, Lareau CR, Paller DJ, DiGiovanni CW Link to Full Text Abstract BACKGROUND: Supination external rotation distal fibula fractures are common, requiring fixation when associated with talar displacement. Subcutaneous distal fibula hardware may become painful, necessitating operative removal. We hypothesize that mini-fragment and [...]

Biomechanical analysis of Brostrom versus Brostrom-Gould lateral ankle instability repairs

By |2020-07-27T16:57:41+00:00April 1st, 2013|

Publication: Foot & Ankle International Date: April 2013 Authors: Behrens SB, Drakos M, Lee BJ, Paller D, Hoffman E, Koruprolu S, DiGiovanni CW Link to Full Text Abstract BACKGROUND: The traditional Brostrom repair and the modified Brostrom-Gould repair are 2 historically reliable procedures used to address lateral ankle instability. The purpose of this study was [...]
