BACKGROUND Tibiotalocalcaneal arthrodesis (TTCA) using intramedullary nails is a salvage procedure for many diseases in the ankle and subtalar joint. Despite "newly described intramedullary nails" with specific anatomical shapes there still remain major complications regarding this procedure. The following study presents a modified biomechanical test setup(More)
BACKGROUND Although retrograde intramedullary nails for tibiotalocalcaneal arthrodesis (TTCA) are an established fixation method, few studies have evaluated the stability of the available nail systems. The purpose of this study was to compare biomechanically the primary stability of 2 nail-systems, A3 (Small Bone Innovations) and HAN (Synthes), in human(More)
