Eye movement indicators generated from the Tobii studio included fixation duration, fixation count, visit duration, and visit count on all target AOIs.
There were 32 cases of failed internal fixation of femoral neck fracture (FIFFNF) and 24 cases of failed internal fixation of intertrochanteric fracture (FIFIF).
The aim of this study is to analyze functional, radiographic and neurological results of posterior fixation of these injuries and to compare short and long fixation.
Results: (1) In the fixation task, compared to healthy controls, patients with depressive disorder showed more fixations, shorter fixation durations, more saccades and longer saccadic lengths; (2) In the saccade task, patients with depressive disorder showed longer anti-saccade latencies and smaller anti-saccade peak velocities; (3) In the free-view task, patients with depressive disorder showed fewer saccades and longer mean fixation durations; (4) Correlation analysis showed that there was a negative correlation between the pro-saccade amplitude and anxiety symptoms, and a positive correlation between the anti-saccade latency and anxiety symptoms.
We looked at two measures of fixation during this study: fixation count and fixation duration.
5) Treatment strategies and fixation methods used include internal and external fixation as well as staged approaches with aim of reducing the fracture, reconstructing the involved bones and restoration of articular surface congruence with minimal insult to soft tissues.
Therefore, the initial fixation strength of an ACL graft required for these activities should be greater than 450 N.
Although some of these fractures can be treated conservatively, grossly displaced and comminuted fractures should be surgically corrected either with closed reduction and stabilization with percutaneous Kirschner wires (K-wires) or open reduction internal fixation with plate and screws.
Though screw fixation has been shown to have potentially superior fixation characteristics, (10) suture button constructs have been described as being effective in the treatment of Lisfranc injury and repair.
