It has long been recognized that one of the most difficult steps of intramedullary nailing of femoral shaft fractures is distal locking – the insertion of distal transverse interlocking screws, for which it is necessary to know the positions and orientations of the distal locking holes of the intramedullary nail. This paper presents a constrained optimization approach for solving this problem using single calibrated fluoroscopic image. The problem is formulated as a sequential two-stage model… CONTINUE READING
