Stimulation of the inflammatory system by reamed and unreamed nailing of femoral fractures. An analysis of the second hit.
It has been suggested that reamed intramedullary nailing of the femur should be avoided in some patients with multiple injuries. We have studied prospectively the effect of femoral reaming on theExpand
