A new fixation device was designed for fractures of the distal third of the femur. An additional use has been for the stabilization of supracondylar osteotomies. The device consists of two- pre-shaped rods which are inserted through the medial and lateral femoral condyles into the medullary canal. The proximal end is ductile and the distal end rigid.

Previous reports and a study of the mechanism of injury in 25 cases of fracture of the odontoid suggest that the fracture usually results from a high velocity force directed to the head, producing flexion, extension, or rotation of the upper cervical spine. In a laboratory biomechanical study using cadaver preparations, fractures of the odontoid were(More)
