BACKGROUND Elastic stable intramedullary nailing has become a popular treatment for pediatric long-bone fractures. However, early limb malalignment and length differences may occur in children with femoral fractures who are managed with this procedure. METHODS We prospectively followed sixty-eight children (mean age, 5.6 years) who were managed with elastic stable intramedullary nailing for the treatment of a unilateral femoral shaft fracture in order to evaluate early angular or rotational… CONTINUE READING
