AIM Bone quality is a main factor in implant fixation. After having shown promising results, we have further investigated the use of the DensiProbe™ as an intraoperative measurement tool for evaluation of calcaneal bone quality and prediction of nailed hindfoot arthrodesis failure. METHOD In this add-on study 19 nail arthrodeses were performed using a… CONTINUE READING
