BACKGROUND Distal locking is the key procedure of the intramedullary nailing operation. It is difficult to precisely locate the locking path, and intraoperative radiation exposure is also a serious problem. The advantages and disadvantages of different approaches applied in this operation are summarized. METHOD A biplanar robot navigation system for the distal locking of intramedullary nails is presented. The novel mechanical structure and the surgical process are introduced. Then the… CONTINUE READING
