  • Orthopedics & Fractures
  • Slide 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
  • Slide 3
  • Orthopedic Exam Meet Sam & Simon!!
  • Slide 4
  • BONES Major Functions: 1. Support for bodys 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
  • Slide 5
  • Anatomy of a Typical Bone Types of Bone - Compact Bone bones outer layer, what we can see. It is dense, strong, and heavy - Spongy Bone bones inner layer; self- organizes in response to the direction of weight put on it http://training.seer.cancer.gov/module_anatomy/unit3_4_bone_classifica tion.html
  • Slide 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
  • Slide 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.
  • Slide 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?

  • Slide 11
  • Open Fracture
  • Slide 12
  • Closed Fracture
  • Slide 13
  • Complete Fracture
  • Slide 14
  • Incomplete Fracture
  • Slide 15
  • Comminuted Fracture
  • Slide 16
  • Segmental Fracture
  • Slide 17
  • Chip Fracture
  • Slide 18
  • Pathologic Fracture Fracture secondary to another disease process
  • Slide 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
  • Slide 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
  • Slide 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
  • Slide 22
  • Normal Fracture Healing
  • Slide 23
  • What Is Necessary to Get Normal Healing?
  • Slide 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
  • Slide 25
  • Malunion
  • Slide 26
  • Sequestrum
  • Slide 27
  • Non-union
  • Slide 28
  • Osteomyelitis
  • Slide 29
  • Treatment Options Fracture Reduction - Closed * temporary (until surgery) * permanent (cast or splint) - Open (orthopedic surgery) Intramedullary Fixation Cerclage External Fixation Devices
  • Slide 30
  • Fracture Reduction Goals Get bones close enough to heal Proper alignment - avoid mal-union + loss of function Avoid additional trauma - further fracture - infection
  • Slide 31
  • Closed Fracture Reduction
  • Slide 32
  • Open Fracture Reduction
  • Slide 33
  • Intramedullary Fixation
  • Slide 34
  • Pin Insertion

  • Slide 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
  • Slide 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!!

  • 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! 1 st hip replacement surgery was developed in military dogs
