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: van de wall1, b. J. M. , et al. (2020), results of plate fixation for humerus fractures in a large single center cohort, archives of orthopaedic and trauma surgery, vol. 140, pages 1311-1318 (switzerland). This study aims to describe the results of plate fixation in one of the largest single-center cohorts that employs plate fixation as the golden standard. Additionally, risk factors related to a negative outcome were identified. Between january 2010 and december 2017. A total of 102 patients (56 males and 46 females with a mean age of 20 years) underwent plate fixation using either a philos (for proximal shaft fractures) or narrow lcp 4. 5-mm/3. 5-mm (midshaft or distal fractures) plate. Patients were followed up for a median of 12 months (range 3¿59). The following complications were reported as follows: 1 patient developed a deep surgical site infection following the plate fixation of a gustilo grade-ii shaft fracture. This patient was treated with antibiotics. The implant had to be removed due to persistent infection after 3 months. A second plate fixation was performed after a 6-week interval after which the fracture healed uneventfully. 4 patients developed a non-union. Three of these four patients with non-unions had a revision of the implant with the addition of cancellous bone after which the fracture healed. One patient was treated conservatively due to psychiatric comorbidities and poor compliance. 2 patients developed partial nerve palsy postoperatively. 1 patient had persistent radial nerve palsy. 9 patients had partial nerve palsy during follow-up. Contusion of the nerve was reported in three patients. No additional treatment for the nerve was performed. 6 patients had implant removal due to nonunion. 3 patients had implant removal due to loss of reduction within 6 weeks postoperatively. 3 patients had implant removal due to infection. 1 patient had implant removal due to humeral head necrosis. 1 patient had implant removal due to partial nerve palsy postoperatively. This report is for an unknown philos and lcp. A copy of the literature article is being submitted with this medwatch. This is report 2 of 2 for (b)(4).
