Have you joined the club?

Result of a low side at 70mph in Nevada.

That's a nasty looking orthepedic nightmare. Must be sore when the cold damp weather blows in.

Are the tips of the screws supposed to protrude on the other side of the bone?

It was OK until the nuts fell off.

Thanks for the replies Shadow 9er and Eyes Shut. The links were also very informative, thanks for sharing them with me.

I was introduced to dual sport riding in 2009, went on my first adventure ride from Seattle to central Oregon in 2011, loved it, and really got into it this past year (I was away from home for about 6 months in 2012 due to work overseas). This injury messed with my head and reading other's similar experiences helped. I plan on taking a PSSOR class next spring to improve my dirt skills and boost my confidence.

Bluhduh T-boned = bones held together with Titanium????

Jeep pulled right to side of street....then suddenly U-turned left "to drop off my friend at her apartment".

Went thru driver's window at 40mph (that caught her attention). ACDF = titanium plates = 3yrs of GEICO claim development = near constant head/neck aches.



Is it worth it? Seriously...

I guess so. Two orthos seem to think it looks OK, but ya from a carpenters perspective looks pretty amateurish.

Like, do we have any 1" screws? No but we have 1 1/2". Ok those will do.

My doctor told me when I asked about the same thing is so that the screws have a better purchase on the bone. Since the middle is filled with not-so anchorish marrow, they need to get both sides so that the screw doesnt rip or twist out, and unfortunatley that requires screw tips poking out the other side. Doesn't feel good when tendons need to slide over them.

I have a plate and nine screws in the left tibia. Sustained a Tibia Plateau fracture in April of 03. And yes it was a Motorcycle injury.

I just butchered up a white tailed deer on the weekend. I've done a dozen or so now and I can tell you that in the deboning process the flesh has to be cut off the bone. There is no sliding action of mucle along the bone/muscle interface. The mucsle has to be cut or tore off the bone so as bad as those protruding screws look, I imagine that they shouldn't interfere with tendons. I know that you're not a white tailed deer but we are super close in anatomy.

Not mine, but my wife's membership photo... she was a passenger in a work vehicle that rolled. Roof partially collapsed, impacting the top of her head resulting in a burst fracture of the T6.

Clearing airport security is all kinds of fun, nowadays...



And even more to her credit this was before she got her motorcycle license, and we've done several 2-week long 2500mile road trips on bikes since. She's a tough cookie, that one...

I don't know if you'll be able convince my buddy of this, the screws in his radius (a break like mine, but his was worse, no choice but screwing it) are bugging him quite a bit, says he's got tendonitis from them dragging on the screw heads.

They actually measure the depth of each hole they drill in the bone before choosing a screw that is the proper length. They like to get them so the threads engage both walls of the bone securely. They actually have to be very meticulous about drilling and hand tapping each hole for screw placement.. If they are not careful the screws can loosen up over time. Usually scar tissue completely covers the ends of the screws and the resulting surface is very smooth. I've seen bones that were plated years earlier and you can hardly tell where the tips of the screws are sometimes.

Interesting.
BTW my time under the knife in the OR for the placement of the hardware - 45 minutes!
