Monitoring and controlling intramedullary pressure increase in long bone instrumentation: a study on sheep.

Abstract

Intramedullary reamed nailing causes elevation in intramedullary pressure and extravazation of intramedullary contents into the venous blood system. This study investigated the effect of an intramedullary suction system, recently developed in our laboratory, on the pressure and fat extravazation in isolated bovine bone and a sheep model. During reaming, the… (More)
