    Background: Distal interlocking screw insertion in intramedullary nailing of long-bone fracture is a challenging task for orthopedic surgeons. It is difficult particularly when the surgeon is in his learning stage or when image intensifier is not available. We describe a radiation-free technique...

    Purpose: Tibial nail interlocking screw failure often occurs during delayed fracture consolidation or at early weight bearing of nailed unstable fractures, in general when high implant stress could not be reduced by other means. Is there a biomechanical improvement in long-term performance of...

    Background: Angular stable locking of intramedullary nails has been shown to enhance fixation stability of tibial fractures in biomechanical and animal studies. The aim of our study was to assess whether use of the angular stable locking system or conventional locking resulted in earlier full...

  • Distal Tibial Fractures: Intramedullary Nailing. Ruecker, Andreas H.; Hoffmann, Michael; Rupprecht, Martin E.; Rueger, Johannes M. // European Journal of Trauma & Emergency Surgery;Dec2009, Vol. 35 Issue 6, p520 

    The tibia is an exposed bone with vulnerable soft tissue coverage and is therefore predisposed to local soft tissue problems and delayed bone healing. The objective in distal tibial fracture treatment is to achieve stable fixation patterns with a minimum of soft-tissue affection. Thus, the risk...
