Dynamics of Blood Values in Patients with Radial Shaft Injury after Using Transosseous Osteosynthesis by external Fixation Pin Device
Acta Biomedica Scientifica
Transosseous osteosynthesis continues to occupy a leading position among the methods of treatment of damage to the tubular bones of the extremities. This article presents a survey of 47 patients: 22 men and 25 women aged 25 to 60 years with fractures in the middle third of the radial shaft with displacement of bone fragments. The peculiarity of the external fixation device we used is that all transosseous elements are represented by 1.5 mm pins, inserted through both cortical layers of each
... layers of each bone, at levels from I and VIII. The pins are inserted simultaneously through both bones, thus excluding the rotational function of the forearm.The essence of the study is a comparative analysis of the blood system parameters in patients with diaphyseal injuries of the radial bone, operated by the transosseous osteosynthesis method using the external fixation device of pin configuration. Any damage to the body, (a fracture or related surgery), is accompanied with various changes in the system of hemodynamics and metabolism.The laboratory blood tests performed in the group of patients with damage to the radial shaft treated with transosseous osteosynthesis by external fixation device of pin configuration, revealed certain regularities in changing of blood parameters: increased number of platelets, increased level of fibrinogen and level of soluble fibrin complexes, which promotes the activation of the internal mechanism of blood clotting.
