Experimentally, two slotted nails, the Grosse-Kempf nail and the AO/ASIF universal femoral nail, were compared to the non-slotted Grosse-Kempf nail and control bone using a cadaver femoral osteotomy. The stiffnesses and strengths of the osteotomies fixed with slotted nails in 10–30° torsion were 6–8% and the values of non-slotted nails 40% of control bone. The maximal moments were 14–18% and 48%, respectively. In the “clinical range” of torsion, the implant-bone construct never failed or was… CONTINUE READING
