Benefit from Some Excellent Innovations

Having spent more than a decade operating the patients of either bone diseases or victims of severe fractures; I have seen the pain and agony of the patients. At the same time I have experienced the dramatic results of several modern orthopedic implants. Today I thought that I talk about three surgical gadgets or implants as they are popularly called!

I will start with Emergency Screw-this amazing implant available in a thread diameter of 3.2 mm has relieved my patients from their soft tissue irritation problems post surgery. Though Emergency Screws look so small yet they serve very well!

Other miraculous surgical wrap is Esmarch rubber bandage. I have used this in a number of ways during my treatment. Though its major purpose was to exert pressure on the area of constant blood loss to stop bleeding but I have used the bandage to clear off the blood from the effected limb. This has helped me in visualizing the condition of the limb further. It can also be used as a first aid in case of heavy blood loss after any major calamity. As soon as the blood-flow stops, shift the person to the hospital for further treatment. 

Cloverleaf plate is the last orthopedic implant of my today’s blog topic. This implant is an amazing instrument and has proved very effective while I was doing osteo synthesis of humeral head fractures. Though my fellow doctors and surgeons find it useful for intra-articular tibial fractures and pilon fractures along with ankle fractures.
