Fractures of the long bones occur commonly and include the humerus, radius, ulna, femur, tibia and fibula. Often times they require surgery with insertion of rods or plates. Unfortunately despite patients and surgeons best efforts, often times these fractures fail to heal. The all to common result is a patient that has limited mobility and function and continues to have pain.
Treatment options are limited and may include application of a bone stimulator in the hopes that it will stimulate the generation of bone growth and hence healing of the fracture.
Regret ably another option is for the surgeon is to simply remove the hardware and re break the bones. Yes. Re Break the bones and place another set of plates and or rods into the bone. This exposes the patient to anesthesia, the risks inherent in surgery not to mention the pain and suffering associated with the surgery and rehabilitation.
