Abstract

This report was designed to present a novel technique combining suture anchor and unicortical button fixation for distal triceps tendon repair. For anatomical reinsertion of an acute distal triceps tendon rupture, two suture anchors and one unicortical button forming a V-shaped configuration were used. The operative approach is described in detail. Excellent clinical and functional results were achieved in the early postoperative phase. The patient reached full elbow range of motion and extension muscle strength (5/5) compared to the uninjured arm 12 weeks after surgery. Complications did not occur. This is the first report using unicortical button fixation in distal triceps tendon repair with promising preliminary results. Technical description, case report, Level V.

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 April 2017.
All research outputs
#5,215,498
of 9,424,035 outputs
Outputs from European Journal of Medical Research
#97
of 206 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#148,088
of 261,471 outputs
Outputs of similar age from European Journal of Medical Research
#1
of 2 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 9,424,035 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 27th percentile – i.e., 27% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 206 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 4.9. This one is in the 38th percentile – i.e., 38% 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 261,471 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 34th percentile – i.e., 34% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 2 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has scored higher than all of them
