6 Guidelines That will relieve Your MDV3100 Concerns
  • 12 Many authors have further substantiated this concept. Rhinelander and Stewart showed that bone necrosis was minimal when rabbit osteotomies were fixed with nylon straps.13 Perren et al.4 did a pilot experiment of percutaneous cerclage fixation in a sheep model and used fluorescent dyes to visualize the vascular perfusion area on Telomerase the periosteum. They found the effect of cerclage was minimal. In their study a solid cerclage wire only limited periosteal perfusion for a length of 0.36 mms and a cerclage cable limited perfusion for <0.3?mm. From a biological internal fixation concept, the disrepute of cerclage wiring is a result of the complications resulting from the extensive surgical dissection and soft tissue stripping required for fracture reduction. Nevertheless, this is a problem occurring with classic cerclage application and not a problem with cerclage fixation itself. Femoral shaft blood supply is derived from three parallel arterial pathways including the superficial femoral artery <a href="http://www.selleckchem.com/products/AZD6244.html">selleck (SFA), the deep femoral artery (DFA) or profunda femoris artery, and the collateral pathway via the perforators.14 This relationship was demonstrated well in our study as shown in Fig. 3a. An additional path is also available by way of the descending branch of the lateral femoral circumflex artery (LFCA) (Fig. 5a and b). The perforating branch of the DFA typically includes three separate numbered branches and the terminal branch, which is referred to as the fourth perforating artery. The perforating arteries sequentially anastomose with adjacent perforators along the linea aspera, posterior to the femur.11 These branches provide the primary arterial supply to numerous muscles of the thigh, especially in the medial and posterior compartments, and a large nutrient artery to the femoral shaft (Fig. 6). The first perforator has a rich anastomotic relationship with the MDV3100 cell line inferior gluteal artery, the medial femoral circumflex artery, and the second perforator. It is through these important relationships that the first perforator participates in the anastomotic network in the posterior aspect of the thigh. The second perforator gives off ascending and descending branches that anastomose with the first and third perforators. Typically, the second perforator supplies the nutrient artery to the femur. The third and forth perforators anastomose with adjacent perforators, muscular branch of the popliteal artery, and the distal part of SFA. The perforating arteries sequentially anastomose with adjacent perforators along the linea aspera posterior to the femur (Fig. 4b). The anatomoses continue distally with muscular branches of SFA and genicular braches of the popliteal artery. These anastomotic relationships were demonstrated in our study. In the one specimen where the DFA was interrupted by a cerclage wire, after giving off its first perforator, the forth perforator was still patent because of an anastomosis from the distal pathway (Fig. 4a).
