Objective: This study aims to discuss the clinical effects of Minimally Invasive Percutaneous Plate Osteosynthesis (MIPPO) technology in patients with anterior ring instability fracture.
Methods: The participants were 76 patients with anterior ring instability fracture who were admitted in our hospital from April 2015 to June 2017. The patients were divided into control (n=38) and treatment groups (n=38) by using random number table. The control group was treated with improved Stoppa reconstructive plate fixation, whereas the treatment group was administered with MIPPO technology. The operation conditions, Majeed functional improvement effect, comprehensive therapeutic effect, and postoperative complications of the two groups were compared.
Results: The treatment group is significantly superior over the control group in terms of time of operation, intraoperative blood loss, length of stay, and time of fracture healing (P<0.05). The Majeed functional scores of both groups at 1 and 3 months after the operation are significantly higher than those before the operation. In addition, the Majeed functional scores of the treatment group are higher than those of the control group (P<0.05). The control group achieves significantly lower clinical efficiency than the treatment group (P<0.05). By contrast, the treatment group suffers fewer complications than the control group (P<0.05).
Conclusions: MIPPO technology significantly affects anterior ring instability fracture. This method is characteristic of small trauma, high safety, feasibility, and quick recovery and is worthy of further clinical popularization.Author(s): Zhi-Hong Wang, Ming-Ming Wang, Bin Xu, He-Huan Xia, Jun-Ming Cao, Yong-Sheng Lin, Yi-Peng Yang
