Next generation distal locking for intramedullary nails using an electromagnetic X-ray-radiation-free real-time navigation system.


BACKGROUND Distal locking marks one challenging step during intramedullary nailing that can lead to an increased irradiation and prolonged operation times. The aim of this study was to evaluate the reliability and efficacy of an X-ray-radiation-free real-time navigation system for distal locking procedures. METHODS A prospective randomized cadaver study… (More)
