PURPOSE Today intramedullary locked nails are widespread in treatment of diaphyseal long bone fractures of the lower limb. However, such nails have a number of drawbacks: complexity and duration of the installation, high axial stiffness, as well as the failure of locking screws and nail body. Expandable nails such as Fixion have several advantages over(More)
This article reviews studies of Fixion expandable nail biomechanical properties in case of long bones fractures osteosynthesis. The purpose of this study was to systematize biomechanical researches dedicated to the expandable nail. There were found seven biomechanical studies published between 2005 and 2008. Among them, six studies are devoted to mechanical(More)
This article presents new intramedullary (IM) nail design for femur diaphyseal fractures osteosynthesis. Biomechanical comparison of the two IM nails (standard locking and new developed) was conducted. Femur medullary canal architectonics was studied with the help of computer tomography (CT) data. Three-dimensional (3D) models of the femur, its transverse(More)
