BACKGROUND The treatment of femoral shaft fractures in heavier children has been studied extensively, however, no study has directly compared elastic nail (TEN) and rigid locking nails (RLN) in this population. Our goal was to compare TEN with RLN in length-stable diaphyseal femur fractures in heavier children and adolescents (47 to 85 kg) using weight-matched cohorts. METHODS We retrospectively reviewed records for length-stable diaphyseal femoral fractures treated with TEN or RLN over 8… CONTINUE READING
