BACKGROUND Retrograde intramedullary nailing is an established procedure for tibiotalocalcaneal arthrodesis. This study was conducted to see whether, and if so to what extent, nail design modifications would influence the risk to anatomic structures and the bony coverage of the nail base. METHODS Six pairs of thawed fresh-frozen cadaver legs received two different intramedullary nails (N1: straight nail, lateral-medial tip locking; N2: valgus-curved nail, medial-lateral tip locking) under… CONTINUE READING
