Mechanical characteristics of eight femoral intramedullary nailing systems.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE There are few nonproprietary papers addressing the mechanical strength of intramedullary nails; none address the characteristics of the proximal and distal ends of these devices. Our objective was to provide such data. DESIGN Independent testing of eight femoral intramedullary nail systems at the proximal, middle, and distal regions was… (More)
