The Duration and Safety of Osteoporosis Treatment
117,69 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Providing a comprehensive review of short-and long-term adverse events of both antiresorptive and anabolic drugs, this practical guide updates the clinician on the pathophysiology of osteoporosis and the principles behind our present and future pharmaceuticals. Leading practitioners in the field examine all current literature and data regarding the duration and safety of these therapies, with recommendations for clinicians on decision-making and best practices for osteoporosis patients. An overview of the pathophysiology and epidemiology of osteoporosis and discussion of both anabolic and antiresorptive drugs is followed by fracture risk assessment and an examination of treatment failures. Next, a number of chapters are dedicated to the diagnosis, presentation and management of atypical femur fractures and osteonecrosis of the jaw (ONJ), each of which are significant patient concerns when using these osteoporosis treatments. The introduction and utilization of drug holidays is also discussed, as well as the long-term outlook for management of osteoporotic patients. Written and edited by experts in the field, The Duration and Safety of Osteoporosis Treatment is a balanced resource for researchers, practitioners and policy-makers alike for clinical decision-making and patient care.

Complex Fractures of the Limbs
139,09 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This book provides up-to-date guidance on the diagnosis and treatment of the most important complex fractures of the limbs, including fractures of the proximal and distal humerus, fractures and dislocations of the elbow, fractures of the distal radius, pelvis, acetabulum, distal femur, proximal tibia, tibial pilon, calcaneus and osteoporotic knee fractures. The most complex articular fractures are analyzed, soft tissue coverage is reviewed, and the management of open fractures and nonunions is described and illustrated. Other chapters consider damage control management and immediate bone fixation in the polytrauma patient, skeletal reconstruction and rehabilitation of complex fractures of the limbs. The book offers guidance to orthopaedic surgeons on which treatment options afford the best preservation of fully functional joints around the fractured bone. With this goal in mind, the authors have developed strategies that can restore full articular function of the limbs in both the short and the long term. Complex Fractures of the Limbs will be an invaluable aid to orthopaedic surgeons in treating patients with this very common and important clinical problem.

Signal Analysis of Quantitative Ultrasound Meas...
48,80 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

For the prediction of osteoporotic fracture risk quantitative Ultrasound (QUS) is an alternative to techniques like X-ray absorptiometry or magnetic resonance tomography. In QUS measurements short pulses with center frequencies of 0.5 – 1 MHz are transmitted through bone. From the received signals characteristic transfer parameters associated with mechanical bone properties are determined. Within two research projects a device has been developed to transfer this technique from peripheral sites like the heel to the proximal femur, which is a main fracture site. In doing so, the conventional signal processing techniques for the calculation of the standard QUS parameters frequently failed due to multipath transmission of sound waves in bone. Therefore, the aim of this work is the development of a signal analysis which allows for characterizing sound paths separately.Based on theoretical considerations regarding sound propagation in bone and the introduction of the standard QUS parameters, the impact of multipath transmission to the calculation of these parameters is discussed. Analytically and with simulations errors are illustrated which arise from disregarding the existence of multiple sound paths. Furthermore, the ex vivo and in vivo measurement setups are shortly presented.Main focus of this work is put on the signal analysis. For the separation of superimposed signal components from different sound paths a model-based signal analysis is adapted from the area of nondestructive material testing to this specific task, at first. This algorithm is based on the analytical description of the received US pulses in the time domain as a superposition of several Gaussianmodulated cosines with additive white noise. Applying nonlinear optimization procedures using leastsquares fits which are integrated in an iterative Space Alternating Generalized Expectationmaximization algorithm (SAGE) the difference between measured and modelled signal is minimized and, thus, the model parameters of each signal component are determined. Then, the transfer parameters are calculated from the shift of these parameters compared to a reference signal. However, this algorithm is limited to signals, which can be described as Gaussian modulated cosines in the time domain.

Popliteal Fossa
29,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The popliteal fossa is a space or shallow depression located at the back of the knee-joint. The bones of the popliteal fossa are the femur and the tibia. Colloquially, it is referred to as a "knee pit."The roof is formed by (from superficial to deep). 1. Skin. 2. Superficial fascia which contains short saphenous vein, three cutaneous nerves i.e, terminal branch of posterior cutaneous nerve of thigh, posterior division of medial cutaneous nerve, and peroneal or sural communicating nerve. 3.Deep fascia or popliteal fascia.The floor is formed by. 1.The popliteal surface of femur 2.Capsule of knee joint and the oblique Popliteal ligament 3.strong fascia covering the Popliteal muscleThe roof contains a portion of the small saphenous vein and posterior cutaneous nerve of the thigh.

The Double Dynamic Martin Screw (DMS)
56,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The scope and importance of hip fractures is almost incomprehensible. With a world wide incidence of close to 2 million cases per year, these fractures pose a daunting challenge to our ability to affect and treat this epidemic. Basics for operative treatment of proximal and distal femur fractures: Clear surgical indication, short planning and preparation < 24 h, full weight bearing osteosynthesis, early mobilisation and physiotherapy. In comprehensive form the book presents the usage of a meanwhile well installed implant (DMS) for osteosynthesis technique in the peritrochanteric region. The 'double dynamic' stabilization (sliding tongue principle and angle adapted contoured fit) means a state of the art fracture treatment procedure. It is a convincing alternative to achieve a biological osteosynthesis at the femur. The system includes an infinitely adjustable, flexible angle, dynamic plate with a tubular distal part.
