The article discusses research on the effectiveness of elastic stable intramedullary nailing in displaced midshaft clavicular fractures. It is stated that the research is evidence-based orthopaedics in nature. It is mentioned that elastic stable intramedullary nailing resulted in a lower rate of delayed union and better functional outcome than nonoperative treatment for patients with fully displaced midshaft clavicular fractures.

    Distal femoral fractures are not as common as proximal femoral fracture in elderly, but they can lead to significant post-injury morbidity and mortality. These types of fractures have been treated mainly operatively over the last few decades. Elderly patients have poor bone quality and they do...
