In this case report, we describe a rare clinical situation of acute arterial thoracic outlet syndrome (TOS) after osteosynthesis, using an intramedullary Knowles pin, to treat nonunion of a midshaft clavicular fracture.
Maryland Heights, MO, July 12, 2016 --(PR.com)-- According to a new market research report published by iHealthcareAnalyst, Inc., Osteosynthesis Devices Market - Global Internal and External Devices and Materials Analysis and Forecast 2013-2020, the global osteosynthesis devices market is estimated to reach USD 8.9 Billion in 2020, expanding at a CAGR of 6.2% from 2016 to 2020.
Classic intramedullary osteosynthesis do not provide a stable fixation, while open reduction and rigid fixation by classic plates (Recommended in the 60s-70s) is requiring large incisions with important deperiostation.
Written for and by orthopedic trauma surgeons around the world, this volume contains 26 chapters that address all aspects of minimally invasive plate osteosynthesis (MIPO).
