Cancellous Screw: An Overview

Cancellous screws are a type of medical device used to secure bone fragments in orthopedic surgeries. They are commonly used in procedures that involve bones with a spongy, or cancellous, structure, such as the pelvis, knee, and ankle joints. In this article, we will provide an overview of cancellous screws, including their uses, benefits, and risks.

What are cancellous screws?

Cancellous screws are specialized screws designed to be used in bone that has a spongy or cancellous structure. They have a thread pattern that is optimized to hold in this type of bone, providing a stable anchor point for bone fragments that need to be secured together during a surgical procedure.

Benefits of cancellous screws

The use of cancellous screws provides several benefits, including:

  1. Stability: The thread pattern of cancellous screws provides a stable anchor point, which helps to hold bone fragments together during the healing process.

  2. Speed: The use of cancellous screws can help speed up the healing process, as they provide a secure fixation point that allows bones to heal in the correct position.

  3. Versatility: Cancellous screws can be used in a variety of surgical procedures, making them a versatile tool in orthopedic surgery.

  4. Minimally invasive: The use of cancellous screws is often minimally invasive, which means that the surgical incisions can be smaller and less traumatic to the surrounding tissue.

Risks and complications

As with any surgical procedure, there are potential risks and complications associated with the use of cancellous screws. These include:

  1. Infection: There is a risk of infection at the site of the incision or around the screws used to secure the bone fragments.

  2. Screw failure: The screws may loosen or break over time, requiring additional surgery.

  3. Nerve or blood vessel damage: The surgical procedure can damage nerves or blood vessels in the surrounding area, leading to numbness or tingling in the affected limb.

  4. Allergic reaction: Some patients may have an allergic reaction to the metal used in the screws.

Your orthopedic surgeon will discuss these risks and complications with you prior to the procedure and will take steps to minimize the risk of complications.

Recovery process

After the procedure, you will be instructed to keep weight off the affected limb for a period of time. You may be given crutches or a walker to assist with mobility. Physical therapy may also be prescribed to help restore strength and function to the affected limb. Recovery time can vary depending on the extent of the injury and the individual patient, but in general, it takes several weeks to a few months to fully recover.

FAQs

  1. How long does the cancellous screw procedure take?

The procedure typically takes around 1-2 hours.

  1. Will I need to have the screws removed after the bone has healed?

In some cases, the screws may need to be removed after the bone has fully healed. Your surgeon will discuss this with you prior to the procedure.

  1. How long does recovery take after cancellous screw surgery?

Recovery time can vary depending on the extent of the injury and the individual patient, but in general, it takes several weeks to a few months to fully recover.

  1. Can cancellous screws be used in all types of orthopedic surgeries?

Cancellous screws are typically used in procedures that involve bones with a spongy or cancellous structure, such as the pelvis, knee, and ankle joints.

  1. What is the success rate of cancellous screw surgery?

The success rate of cancellous screw surgery is generally high, with most patients experiencing successful outcomes and improved function of the affected limb.
