22-year-old male presented with a comminuted Schatzker type II fracture of right leg.
Use of genex in the treatment of proximal femur fracture
86-year-old male patient presented with failed intramedullary nailing of an extracapsular neck of femur fracture. Patient complained of prominent metalwork and pain.
Use of genex in the treatment of distal tibia non-union
34-year-old male patient presented with healed fibula with a non-union of the distal tibia and a fracture through the nail, 19 months after the initial operation.
Use of genex in the treatment of a comminuted calcaneal fracture
A 47-year-old female presented with a comminuted calcaneal fracture of the right foot, following a fall from 2 metres.
Use of genex in the treatment of tibial plateau fracture
Tibial plateau fracture with dual condyle injury. This is a Schatzker class V injury and typically very unstable.
Use of genex in the treatment of ankle arthrodesis
Male aged 50. Virtually no movement, 1/100 on ankle score. X-rays showed complete loss of joint space but with good overall alignment. Admitted for right ankle scope plus fusion.
Use of genex in the treatment of high tibial osteotomy
30-year-old patient presented with a varus deformity of the right tibia.
Use of genex in non-union of right tibia with revision of intramedullary nail
A 34-year-old male patient was initially treated for right tibia and fibia fracture following a motorcycle accident. This was treated with a bilateral intramedullary nail.
Use of genex in the treatment of a comminuted tibial plateau fracture: Schatzker type IV
A 45-year-old male presented with severe comminution of the distal tibial condyle, with osseous avulsion of the cruciate ligament, following a motorcycle accident. The fracture was classified as Schatzker type IV.
Use of Allogran-R in the treatment of intra-articular calcaneal fracture
A male patient aged 68 presented with subtalar degenerative disease in the right foot, following an intra-articular calcaneal fracture.
Use of Allogran-R in the treatment of a femoral non-union
A female patient aged 58 presented with a femoral fracture non-union, following failure of a fixation plate.
Use of Allogran-R in the treatment of a multi-fragmented fracture of the right clavicle
A female patient aged 57 presented with a muti-fragmented fracture of the right clavicle, following a fall.
Use of Allogran-R in the treatment of fracture of the right femur
A female patient aged 58 presented with a periprosthetic fracture of the right femur. The fracture was plated and wired. However, at 6 months post-op, catastrophic failure of the fixation occurred.
Use of Allogran-R in the treatment of a supracondylar fracture of the left femur
A female patient aged 66 presented with a supracondylar fracture of the left femur.
Use of STIMULAN in the treatment of comminuted distal tibial fracture
A 53 year-old male presented with a right ankle fracture.
Use of STIMULAN in the treatment of a femoral cyst
A 10-year-old male presented with a femoral cyst, below the lesser trochanter. Limited mobility and severe discomfort prevented normal activity.
