Die Beckenringfraktur des älteren Menschen


Osterhoff, Georg; Werner, Clément M L (2015). Die Beckenringfraktur des älteren Menschen. Praxis, 104(22):1195-1202.

Abstract

Pelvic ring fractures in elderly patients are usually associated with a low-energy trauma, which may hide the fact that these fractures are often a combination of anterior and posterior pelvic ring injuries with a potential significant instability with subsequent pain and immobility. Pelvic fractures in the geriatric population are associated with a high morbidity and mortality. The goals of any treatment are the restoration of mobility and independency as well as the prevention of future fractures. In order to accomplish these goals, an interdisciplinary approach is indispensable. This review is aimed to provide insight into the characteristics of geriatric pelvic ring injuries and into their diagnosis and therapy with the associated outcome.

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
