Statistical analysis between groups was used to assess the outcomes of time to union, incidence of non-union, post-operative functionality, incidence of complications, progression to revision surgery, and mortality. A secondary multivariable analysis was used to assess risk factors for non-union and factors positively associated with union. Results: There were no significant differences in outcomes between groups. Union rates were 83.8% (57/68) in the periprosthetic group and 78.9% (45/57) in the non-periprosthetic group (p = 0.648). Comminution was identified as a significant risk factor for non-union (p = 0.005). Use of a submuscular technique had a significant positive association with union (p = 0.006). Conclusions: Outcomes of surgical treatment for periprosthetic and non-periprosthetic distal femur fractures are similar. There is a significant risk of non-union in locked plating of both groups.]]> Wed 16 Sep 2020 16:58:19 AEST ]]> Measuring musculoskeletal pain in infants, children, and adolescents https://nova.newcastle.edu.au/vital/access/ /manager/Repository/uon:31272 Sat 24 Mar 2018 08:44:31 AEDT ]]>
