Abstract

Cerclage wiring is a simple technique that has been practiced widely since the advent of surgical treatment of fractures. Many studies have reported the use of various cerclage technologies with a wide range of results and clinical applications. The increasing numbers of periprosthetic fractures have led to a revival of interest for this simple technique. When cerclages function as implants, they may be used alone or together with a protecting device such as external or internal splints (such as plates, nails, stems of prosthesis or a combination of thereof). This article presents a review of the available literature relating cerclage-wiring techniques and updates the recommendations for clinical use.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 04 September 2014.
All research outputs
#11,135,252
of 12,519,471 outputs
Outputs from European Journal of Orthopaedic Surgery & Traumatology
#272
of 570 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#164,693
of 201,072 outputs
Outputs of similar age from European Journal of Orthopaedic Surgery & Traumatology
#23
of 45 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 12,519,471 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 570 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 1.7. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 201,072 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 45 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
