Event Description
Device report from synthes reports an event in (b)(6) as follows: this report is being filed after the review of the following journal article: quan-zhou w. , shu-ming h. , qi-xun c. , (2014) titanium elastic nail versus plate-screw fixation for the treatment of upper segment fractures of femoral shaft in children, china j orthop trauma volume 27, no. 10 , pages 1-6 (china). This study aims to compare complications and outcome of titanium elastic nail versus plate-screw fixation for the treatment of upper segment fractures of femoral shaft in children. From january 2006 to august 2012,a total of 32 children ages 3 - 12 years with middle and upper segment femoral fractures were treated with titanium elastic nail (ten) and plate-screw fixation (pf). These patients were randomly selected for treatment with titanium elastic nail and plate-screw fixation. In the titanium elastic nail group , where a titanium elastic nail (ten) was used, there were 19 patients, including 11 males and 8 females; the ages were 3 -11 years old, with the average age being (6. 9 ± 2. 2) years old. In the plate-screw fixation group, where a plate-screw (dcp/lcp) plate were used, there were 13 patients, including 9 males and 4 females; the ages were 5 - 12 years old, with the average age being (7. 5 ± 2. 1) years old. The follow-up time of the titanium elastic nail group was 15 - 48 months, with an average of 25. 3 months; the follow-up time of the plate-screw fixation group was 13 - 36 months, with an average of 21. 6 months. The following complications were reported: titanium elastic nail group: 1 superficial infection of incision occurred, which was cured after dressing change. 2 nail tail irritation, which was cured when the internal fixation was removed after fracture healing. 2 pain at the site of nail tail implantation, which affected knee joint flexion and extension, and was obvious in 1 patient, the symptoms disappeared after removing the intramedullary nail. 3 limb length inequality occurred, at the last follow-up. 1 angulation deformity. 1 rotational deformity. 1 poor result of hip joint function result. Plate-screw fixation group: 2 limb length inequality. This report is for an unknown synthes (dcp/lcp) plate and unknown synthes titanium elastic nail (ten). This report is for (1) unk - constructs: dynamic compression plate/screws. This report is 2 of 3 (b)(4).
