Presentation Transcript

  1. Orthopedics & Fractures

  2. Orthopedics “Orthopedics” is: that branch of surgery which is specially concerned with the preservation and restoration of the function of the skeletal system, its joints, and associated structures like ligaments and tendons

  3. Orthopedic Exam • Meet Sam & Simon!!

  4. BONES Major Functions: 1. Support for body’s vital organs (ie. skull protects the brain, rib cage protects the heart & lungs) 2. Serve as levers in conjunction with joints, tendons, ligaments, and muscles for movement 3. Production of blood cells in bone marrow 4. Storage site for calcium & phosphorous

  5. Types of Bone - Compact Bone – bone’s outer layer, what we can see. It is dense, strong, and heavy - Spongy Bone – bone’s inner layer; self- organizes in response to the direction of weight put on it Anatomy of a Typical Bone

  6. Associated Structures • Joint – anytime 2 or more bones come together • Articular Cartilage – cartilage covering the ends of bones that are in contact with adjacent bones to create smooth movement and shock absorption • Tendon – connects muscle to bone • Ligament – connects bone to bone

  7. Classification of Bones • Long Bones – long! Bones of limbs • Short Bones – short! Small bones of hands & feet • Flat Bones – flat! • Sesamoid Bones – small bones embedded in tendon as it crosses a bony prominence. • Irregular Bones – jutting processes give these bones an irregular shape.

  8. Quiz • Can you feel some of these bones in your own body? - where would you feel flat bones? - where would you feel a sesmoid bone (and its associated tendon)? - where would you feel short bones - where would you feel irregular bones?


  10. Open Closed Complete Incomplete Comminuted Segmental Chip Slab Pathologic Types of Fractures

  11. Open Fracture

  12. Closed Fracture

  13. Complete Fracture

  14. Incomplete Fracture

  15. Comminuted Fracture

  16. Segmental Fracture

  17. Chip Fracture

  18. Pathologic Fracture • Fracture secondary to another disease process

  19. Bone Re-Modeling • Osteoblasts – secrete a matrix made up of calcium phosphate crystals • Osteocytes – retired osteoblasts; found within bony wall that they have deposited around themselves • Osteoclasts – break down bone; release acids to dissolve crystals and enzymes to break down matrix

  20. Bone Reacts to Stresses Put on It • Greater physical stress placed on a bone at a particular site results in more bone deposition by osteoblasts at that site • Another theory suggests electrical field change created by physical stress stimulates osteoblasts & matrix formation

  21. Fracture Healing • Primary Bone Healing – occurs when there is an anatomic reduction with compression fixation • Secondary bone healing – occurs with a fibrous connective tissue “bridge” that is replaced by bone

  22. Normal Fracture Healing

  23. What Is Necessary to Get Normal Healing?

  24. Abnormal Fracture Healing • Mal-union – a fracture that heals with abnormal alignment • Non-union – fracture healing has STOPPED before completely healed - elephant foot “hypertrophic non-union” - tapered “atrophic non-union” • Sequestrum – a dead bone fragment separated from the rest of the bone • Osteomyelitis – infection of bone

  25. Malunion

  26. Sequestrum

  27. Non-union

  28. Osteomyelitis

  29. Treatment Options • Fracture Reduction - Closed * temporary (until surgery) * permanent (cast or splint) - Open (orthopedic surgery) • Intramedullary Fixation • Cerclage • External Fixation Devices

  30. Fracture Reduction Goals • Get bones close enough to heal • Proper alignment - avoid mal-union + loss of function • Avoid additional trauma - further fracture - infection

  31. Closed Fracture Reduction

  32. Open Fracture Reduction

  33. Intramedullary Fixation

  34. Pin Insertion

  35. Cerclage

  36. External Fixators

  37. External Fixators

  38. (view video)

  39. TITAN continued … • Treatment: Surgery - Wedge osteotomy of femoral condyles, plate applied - Deepening of patellar groove - Tibial crest movement back to cranial, pins applied - Patella was sutured medially to fixate in groove - Extra joint capsule on medial surface of joint was removed

  40. Follow-Up • Re-Check in 2weeks for range of motion • Re-check in 4weeks for progress of healing • Recheck in 10weeks for further progress of healing STRICT CAGE REST DURING THIS TIME!!

  41. Surgery Tools

  42. Animal Orthopedics as Human Model • Animals are frequently used as models in clinical studies or experiments in the development of surgical procedures & drugs in veterinary medicine to be used in human medicine! 1st hip replacement surgery was developed in military dogs

  43. Jeopardy!
