What Is Open Reduction Internal Fixation (ORIF)?

Open reduction internal fixation (ORIF) is a specialized orthopedic surgical procedure used to fix severely broken bones. This means that it is opted for only in case of severe fractures that can’t be otherwise treated with a cast or splint. These injuries are normally serious fractures that are either displaced, unstable, or involve the joint areas of the legs.

“Open reduction” as the name implies, means an incision made to re-align the bone into its original state. “Internal fixation” means the bones thus exposed in the incision are held together with the help of metal pins, plates, rods, or screws. Post fixation when the bone has healed, these hardware binders are not removed.

When Is Open Redution Internal Fixation (ORIF) Surgery Done?

As with most orthopedic surgeries, Open Reduction Internal Fixation (ORIF) is a very common procedure and is required when:

  • Breaks and fractures in multiple places on the leg bones
  • Bones jutting out or dislocated out of their original position
  • Broken and dislocated bone breaking out from the skin
  • Failed closed reduction procedure, i.e., where the bone was previously re-aligned without an incision and didn’t heal

Internal fixation surgery in orthopedics involves the surgical implants for repairing the bone. These implants are permanent and therefore ensure conditions that can lead to full recovery. The procedure, when duly executed will help restore mobility and the original body structure. The success of this surgery & recovery depends on the patient’s age, medical history, severity of the fracture and post operative care and rehabilitation.

What Is Done In An ORIF Surgery?

ORIF surgery is performed to fix fractures in the limbs and joints of the body. This includes the shoulder joints, arms, elbows, wrist, hips, legs, knees, and ankles. As discussed earlier, it is reserved for extreme dislocation and fracture cases and not for minor injuries.

The surgery is mainly performed as an emergency procedure following an accident in most cases. The trauma involved in such cases is high and therefore these surgeries often last from 3 to 6 hours depending on the severity of injuries.

The primary process flow is mainly two-fold- an Open Reduction followed by an Internal Fixation. The Surgery usually follows the following steps:

  • Anesthesia: This surgery is performed under general Anesthesia.
  • Incision: The surgeon makes a cut through the skin to expose the affected bone.
  • Aligning the bone: The surgeon then moves the bone into the correct position using metal hardware.
  • Adhesion: Metal plates, rods, sutures, screws, etc. as per the merit of the injury will be implanted to hold the bone together in position, allowing it to heal. An x-ray may be taken post process to ensure the bones are properly attached.
  • Closing: The exposed area is carefully closed and stitched.
  • Bandage/Casting: A cast or splint is put to protect the area and assist the repair and healing process of the body internally.
  • Recovery: After the surgery, patients are taken to a safe and sterile recovery area and monitored till they revive from the effects of anesthesia.

Patients with an arm fracture go home on the same day of the surgery. Others might have a longer stay depending on the severity and complications.

High volume of ORIF cases are done every month at DESUN Hospital by the Department of Orthopaedics with excellent outcome.

How Do You Evaluate The Need for Open Reduction Internal Fixation (ORIF) Surgery?

An ortho surgeon evaluates the merits of each patient’s condition on following factors:

  • A medical history: The orthopedic surgeon will gather information about the patient’s general health to identify any restriction to proceed with the surgery.
  • A physical examination: This will assess area of concerns to identify any prima facie issues relevant to each patient.
  • Imaging & Investigations: MRI, CT scan or X-Ray is required to check the damage to the bones.

The surgery helps relieve pain & trauma, restore mobility and improve quality of life.
