Projects & Publications

We are proud of the research we do here at Denver Health, and we are also proud of the research done by our research fellows and assistants outside of our facility. Below is a collection of work done by our team over the years. 


The evolution of plate fixation of fracture was accompanied by advances in metallurgy and improvement Compression plate 

in understanding of the requirements for successful fracture healing. Locked internal fixation minimizes Non-locking plate Locking plate Carbon fibre plate.

Despite increased availability of modern imaging techniques, plain radiographs remain the initial step in the classification of acetabular fractures...Our diagnostic algorithm uses three plain radiographs to classify the fracture into one of the 10 fracture patterns described by Judet and Letournel. 

Radiographic Evaluation of Acetabular 
Fractures: Review and Update on Methodology

Vertical shear pelvic ring fractures are rare and account for less than 1% of all fractures. Unlike severely displaced antero- posterior compression and lateral compression pelvic fractures, patients’ mortality is lower... Our paper reviews the acute management, associated injuries and definitive reduction and fixation strategies of vertical shear pelvic fractures.
