In recent years, we have performed meniscal repairs using wrapped fibrin clots in PGA sheet. We considered the use of wrapped fibrin clots with a PGA sheet to treat meniscus tears. The purpose of this paper is to introduce a step-by-step guide to our new delivery technique using fibrin clots.
In this article, we describe the unique presentation of an 83-year-old, right-hand dominant male with severe right arm dysfunction secondary to a humeral shaft non-union in the setting of ipsilateral CTA. The case highlights the options for, and difficulty in, managing these concomitant pathologies in a medically frail individual who has lost meaningful upper extremity function and independence because of this injury.
