BackgroundThe use of fluoroscopy is necessary during proximal femoral fracture (PFF) osteosynthesis. The frequency of these procedures justifies a description of radiation exposure and comparisons between different techniques and between the different surgical team members.MethodsThis observational prospective and comparative study includes a series of 68 patients with PFF receiving osteosynthesis. Radiation exposure was assessed for all members of the operating team. The radiation dose… CONTINUE READING
