Radial Head Fractures The elbow is a junction between the forearm and upper arm. The elbow joint is made up of 3 bones, namely the humerus bone in the upper arm, which joins with the radius and ulna bones in the forearm. The elbow joint is essential for the movement of your arms for daily activities. The head of the radius bone is cup-shaped and corresponds to the spherical surface of the humerus. The injury in the head of the radius causes impairment in the function of the elbow. Radial head fractures are very common and occur in almost 20% of acute elbow injuries. Elbow dislocations are generally associated with radial head fractures. Radial head fractures are more common in women than in men and occur more frequently in the age group of 30 and 40 years. The most common cause of radial head fractures is breaking a fall with an outstretched arm. Radial head fractures can also occur due to a direct impact on the elbow, a twisting injury, sprain, dislocation or strain. The symptoms of a radial head fracture include severe pain, swelling in the elbow, difficulty in moving the arm, visible deformity indicating dislocation, bruising and stiffness. Your doctor may recommend an X-ray to confirm the fracture and assess displacement of the bone. Sometimes, your doctor may suggest a CT scan to obtain further details of the fracture, especially the joint surfaces. The treatment of a fracture depends on the type of fracture. Type 1 fractures are usually very small. The bone appears cracked, but remains fitted together. The doctor might use a splint (casting) to fix the bone. You may have to wear a sling for a few days. If the crack becomes intense or the fracture gets deep, then your doctor may suggest surgical treatment. Type 2 fractures are characterised by displacement of bones and breaking of bones into large pieces and can be treated by surgery. During surgery, your doctor will correct the soft-tissue injuries and insert screws and plates to hold the displaced bone firmly together. Small pieces of bone may be removed if it prevents normal movement of the elbow. Type 3 fractures are characterised by multiple broken pieces of bone. Surgery is considered the compulsory treatment to either fix or remove the broken pieces of bone, sometimes including the radial head. An artificial radial head may be placed to improve the function of the elbow.
Clavicle Fracture The clavicle is a bone that connects your sternum or breastbone to your shoulder. Clavicle fracture, also called broken collarbone, is a very common sports injury seen in people who are involved in contact sports such as football and martial arts, as well as impact sports such as motor racing. Causes: A broken collarbone normally occurs after a fall onto the shoulder or a motor vehicle accident. The most common sports associated with clavicle fractures include football, hockey and skiing. Symptoms: A broken collarbone most often causes pain, swelling and bruising over the collarbone. Pain increases with shoulder movement. Your shoulder may be slumped downward and forward. You may also have a bump around the area of the break. You may hear a grinding sound when you try to raise your arm. Diagnosis: To diagnose a broken collarbone, your doctor will take a brief history, about the injury, and perform a physical examination of your shoulder. An X-ray of the clavicle is taken to identify the location of the fracture. Your doctor may also recommend a computerised tomography (CT) scan in some cases. Surgery: Surgery may be required in cases of displaced fractures. Surgery is performed to re-align the fractured ends and stabilise them during healing. Surgery often involves the use of pins or plates, and screws to maintain proper positioning of the bone during healing. Plates and screws fixation: During this surgical procedure, your surgeon will reposition the broken bone ends into normal position and then uses special screws or metal plates to hold the bone fragments in place. These plates and screws are usually left in the bone. If they cause any irritation, they can be removed after fracture healing is complete. Pins: Placement of pins may also be considered to hold the fracture in position. The incision required is also smaller. They often cause irritation in the skin at the site of insertion and have to be removed once the fracture heals.
Olecranon (Elbow) Fractures Three bones, the humerus, radius and ulna make up the elbow joint. The bones are held together by ligaments that provide stability to the joint. Muscles and tendons around the bones coordinate the movements and help in performing various activities. Elbow fractures may occur from trauma, resulting from a fall on an outstretched arm, a direct blow to the elbow, abnormal twist to the joint beyond its functional limit, etc. Olecranon fractures are fractures that occur at the bony prominence of the ulna. The fractures, if stable, are treated using an immobilising splint followed by a regimen of motion exercises. However, severe fractures require surgical repair. Symptoms of an olecranon fracture include pain, swelling, bruising, stiffness in and around the elbow, a popping or cracking sound, and deformity of the elbow bones. To diagnose olecranon fractures X-rays of the joint are taken. In some cases, a CT scan may be needed to examine the details of the joint surface. The aim of treatment is to maximise early motion and reduce the risk of stiffness. Nonsurgical treatment options include the use of a splint or a sling to immobilise the elbow during the healing process. Surgery is indicated in displaced and open fractures to realign the bones and stabilise the joint as well as to avoid deep infections. Strengthening exercises, scar massage, therapy with ultrasound, heat and ice are recommended to improve the range of motion. Splints are also used to facilitate stretching of the joint.
Shoulder Separation (AC Dislocation) Acromioclavicular joint (AC joint) dislocation or shoulder separation is one of the most common injuries of the upper arm. It involves the separation of the AC joint and injury to the ligaments that support the joint. The AC joint forms where the clavicle (collarbone) meets the shoulder blade (acromion). Causes: It commonly occurs in young athletes and can result from a fall on the shoulder. A mild shoulder separation can occur when there is an AC ligament sprain that does not displace the collarbone. In more serious injuries, the AC ligament tears and the coracoclavicular (CC) ligament sprains or tears slightly causing misalignment in the collarbone. In the most severe shoulder separation injury, both the AC and CC ligaments get torn and the AC joint moves completely out of its position. Symptoms: Symptoms of a separated shoulder may include shoulder pain, bruising, swelling and limited shoulder movement. Diagnosis: The diagnosis of shoulder separation is made through your medical history, a physical exam and an X-ray. Conservative treatment options: Conservative treatment options include rest, cold packs, medications and physical therapy. Surgery: Surgery may be an option if pain persists or if you have a severe separation. Anatomic reconstruction: Of late, research has been focused on improving surgical techniques used to reconstruct the severely separated AC joint. The novel reconstruction technique that has been designed to reconstruct the AC joint in an anatomic manner is known as anatomic reconstruction. Anatomic reconstruction of the AC joint ensures static and safe fixation and stable joint functions. Nevertheless, a functional reconstruction is attempted through reconstruction of the ligaments. This technique is done through an arthroscopically-assisted procedure. A small open incision will be made to place the graft. This surgery involves replacement of the torn CC ligaments by utilising allograft tissue. The graft tissue is placed at the precise location where the ligaments have torn and fixed using bio-compatible screws. The new ligaments gradually heal and help restore the normal anatomy of the shoulder. Postoperative rehabilitation includes the use of a shoulder sling for 6 weeks, followed by physical therapy exercises for 3 months. This helps restore movements and improve strength. You may return to sports only after 5-6 months of surgery.
Dr. Swapnil Gadge is famous for joint replacement surgery in Nagpur. He explains the concept of joint replacement surgery in the current scenario. Joint replacement surgery includes exchanging a damaged joint by having a manufactured joint. In hip or knee replacement in Nagpur, the unnatural joint is made out of steel and plastic. In the case of shared replacement in the hand, the newest joint is most commonly consists of silicone rubber or the person’s own tissues such as a percentage of a tendon. Joint replacement surgery, called as arthroplasty, is very popular. Every year, orthopaedic in Nagpur carry out thousands of joint replacement surgeries. Many of these surgeries are conducted on the substantial weight-bearing joints, for example, the hips and knees. Joint replacement surgery in the arms is commonly utilized in managing serious arthritis that involves the small important joints of the hand. Typically, the hip replacement in Nagpur and knee replacement in Nagpur, acquire continuous stress from taking walks, running, sporting activity, or maybe injury and are more commonly afflicted by the wearing of collagenous cartilage (degenerative arthritis) than the side joints. But, the joints on the hand do encounter strain in day to day use, and due to the fact that the hand joints are normally smaller sized, these types of strains are typically targeted over a lesser area. The higher proportion of strain to hand area can lead to the elegant joint cartilage to put on in recent times. As the cartilage degenerates, the real bone triggers to being revealed. As soon as the deteriorated joint moves, calcareous rubs upon bone triggering pain, swelling, limiting motions, and frequently causing a farming or popping sensation. Additionally, forms of arthritis that are a result of inflammation of the tissue’s cellular lining the joint frequently impact the small joints of the wrists and hands to cause a joint break down. Examples include rheumatoid arthritis and psoriatic arthritis.

Shoulder Dislocation Playing more overhead sports activities and repeated use of the shoulder the t workplace may lead to sliding of the upper arm bone, the ball portion, from the glenoid, the socket portion of the shoulder. The dislocation might be a partial dislocation (subluxation) or a complete dislocation, causing pain and shoulder joint instability. The shoulder joint often dislocates in the forward direction (anterior instability) and may also dislocate in the backward or downward direction (posterior instability). Most common symptoms of shoulder dislocation include pain and shoulder joint instability. Other symptoms such as swelling, numbness and bruising may occur. At times, it may cause tears in the ligaments or tendons of the shoulder and nerve damage. Your doctor will examine your shoulder and may order an X-ray to confirm the diagnosis. The condition is treated by a process called closed reduction, which involves placing the ball of the upper arm back into the socket. Following this, the shoulder will be immobilised using a sling for several weeks. Ice may be applied over the area 3-4 times a day. Rehabilitation exercises may be started to restore range of motion, once the pain and swelling decrease.
Osteoarthritis, also called degenerative joint disease, is the most common form of arthritis. It occurs most often in older people. This disease affects the tissue covering the ends of bones in a joint called cartilage. In a person with osteoarthritis, the cartilage becomes damaged and worn out, causing pain, swelling, stiffness and restricted movement in the affected joint. Although osteoarthritis may affect various joints, including the hips, knees, hands and spine, the hip joint is most commonly affected. Rarely, the disease may affect the shoulders, wrists and feet.
