Abstract

On the basis of the 10 years' material of the Hugarian National Institute of Traumatology the possibilities of treatment of the open fractures of the forearm are discussed. It is stated by the authors that operative treatment of the open fractures of the forearm is more and more frequent, and--chiefly in the last time--the surgeon strives to obtain rigid internal fixation. If the individual and objective conditions of the internal fixation are not given or the operation seems risky for other reasons--intramedullary splinting--completing the conservative treatment--or wire fixation are the method of choice. In connection with fractures of different type the authors' method is discussed and a few cases are reported.

Allogenic therapies are generated in large batches from unrelated donor tissues such as bone marrow. In contrast, autologous therapies are manufactures as a single lot from the patient being treated. Here is the latest research on allogenic and autologous therapies.
