OBJECTIVES To determine our rate of malalignment in proximal femoral shaft fractures treated with intramedullary (IM) nails, with and without the use of a minimally invasive nail insertion technique (MINIT). DESIGN Retrospective study. SETTING Level 1 trauma center. METHODS Between July 1, 2003, and June 31, 2005, 100 consecutive proximal femoral(More)
OBJECTIVE The authors aimed to develop a mechanical model for delivering controlled impact injuries to an articular cartilage surface, with the ability to control peak contact pressure while maintaining a constant rate of loading across all impact levels. METHODS A pendulum-style impactor with a direct contact interface was fabricated, based on previously(More)
