Event Description
This report is being filed after the review of the following journal article: unsay, j. D. C. , chua tjun huat, i. , and kwek beng kee, e. (2020), early experience with the trochanteric fixation nail-advanced (tfn-a): a descriptive review of thirty-four cases from a single center, indian journal of orthopaedics, vol. Xx (xx), pages 1-8 (singapore). The aim of this retrospective and descriptive study is to look at the early outcomes of the tfn-a as used in a single trauma centre in singapore. Between october 2016 to july 2018, a total of 40 patients underwent fixation. But only 34 patients (13 male and 21 female) with a complete follow-up, with a mean age of 79. 7 years, except for one (age 34 years), were included in the study. Surgery was performed using the trochanteric fixation nail-advanced (tfn-a; synthes gmbh, oberdorf, switzerland). The mean follow-up period for the 37 patients were 5. 8 months (ranged from 2 to 18 months). The following complications were reported as follows: 2 patients died of causes unrelated to the operation (both from myocardial infarction) before their scheduled follow-up. 1 patient with a previous fixation failure (fixation with a pfna) who underwent revision fixation using the tfn-a. 2 patients showed no radiographic signs of fracture healing at 2 months post-surgery; one of them was offered bone grafting (the procedure was cancelled because the patient had a non-fatal myocardial infarction and the patient¿s fracture eventually showed radiographic union 12 months post-surgery) and the other was commenced on anabolic treatment (teriparatide 80 mcg once daily), which induced callus formation at 5 months post-surgery. 1 patient with a multiple-level femoral fracture (it and shaft) had delayed healing at the shaft section due to a large butterfly fragment, but at 6 months post-surgery demonstrated good fracture consolidation. 2 of 34 patients had varus collapse of the fixation construct greater than 5° on follow-up but did not progress towards cut-out (one had cement augmentation and one did not). 16 patients had shortening of the neck (15 helical blades and 1 lag screw), with 5 patients having more than 10 mm collapse (all blades). A (b)(6) year old female patient experienced a broken distal locking screw, however, the fracture united rather unremarkably, and the screw failure was noted on the 6-month follow-up. A (b)(6) year old male patient experienced 2 broken distal locking screws at 6 months post-op showing a united fracture. This is report 1 of 5 for (b)(4). This report is for an unknown synthes tfna constructs.
