Type and choice of bone transplant in non-infected and infected pseudarthroses of the long tubular bones

Aktuelle Traumatologie
C J Wirth, M Jäger


There is unanimous agreement on the need for primary stabilisation of non-infected and infected non-unions of long tubular bones. It is possible to draw up a general schema. With regard to the type of bone transplant usually required, we can make use of purely cortical, corticospongy and spongy bone chips. It is also possible to delimitate the appropriate fields of indication. An essential prerequisite for the proper healing of a bone graft is the stability and satisfactory vascular reaction of the transplant bed. The article describes and discusses the results of such treatment of non-infected and infected non-unions of long tubular bones, taking the above-mentioned aspects into consideration.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.
