OBJECTIVE Intramedullary nail locking bolts often fail to gain purchase or cut out in osteoporotic bone. The biomechanical stability of a bladelike device that lowers intraosseous stress levels by distributing the load over a greater volume of bone was compared with conventional locking bolts in osteoporotic bone. METHODS Standardized simulated comminuted supracondylar femoral fractures (segmental defect) in fresh-frozen paired osteoporotic (bone mineral density <200 milligrams per cubic… CONTINUE READING
