Biomechanical comparison of slotted and nonslotted interlocking nails in distal femoral shaft fractures.

Abstract

The torsional and compressive biomechanical characteristics of slotted and nonslotted interlocking nails in distal femoral shaft fractures were evaluated. Slotted (Grosse-Kempf) and nonslotted (Russell-Taylor) locked nail systems were implanted in anatomic specimen femora, which were then tested in torsion and axial compression. For torsional studies, each… (More)
