OBJECTIVE Fluoroscopy-based computerized navigation systems enable accurate implant placement while reducing radiation exposure. The navigation process normally requires the attachment of a dynamic reference frame (DRF) to a bone, causing additional surgical trauma. The aim of this study was to compare the accuracy of navigation with the DRF either attached to the bone or mounted on the fracture table. METHODS We conducted a prospective study on 10 consecutive patients who underwent operative… CONTINUE READING
