This article describes FRACAS, a computer-integrated orthopedic system for assisting surgeons in performing closed medullary nailing of long bone fractures. FRACAS's goal is to reduce the surgeon's cumulative exposure to radiation and surgical complications associated with alignment and positioning errors of bone fragments, nail insertion, and distal screw(More)
This paper describes the Fracas computer-integrated or-thopaedic system for assisting surgeons in closed long bone fracture reduction. Fracas' goals are to reduce the surgeon's cumulative exposure to radiation and improve the positioning accuracy by replacing uncorre-lated static uoroscopic images with a virtual reality display of 3D bone models created(More)
