Polytrauma refers to a medical condition of any person that has been affected by multiple (poly) traumatic injuries like a serious burn or some extreme head injury. The Injury Severity Score (ISS) in such cases is either equal to or greater than 16. Polytrauma has been a major reason for death in developing countries like China or India. But there have been some serious technological advances to treat such conditions with utter precision. At Ginni Devi Orthopaedic Hospital, we deal with numerous trauma patients each day. Here, we follow the "Damage Control Orthopaedics". According to it, we stabilise the orthopaedic injury so that the overall physiology can improve.
The breakages in the acetabulum or pelvis of the hip joint are among some severe injuries that need utter consideration. For this, orthopaedic surgeons perform Pelvic-Acetabular Surgery.
Intra-articular fractures are distal radius fractures. The techniques for the reduction of such distal radius fractures have made immense progress in the past few years. Earlier such fractures have the negligible possibility of being treated with utter success.
The minimally invasive surgery is performed by making tiny incisions instead of operating via large openings. This leads to rapid recovery with lesser pain than conventional surgical methods. Incisions are about some millimetres long. An endoscope is inserted into one of the incisions.
