Stability of reamed and unreamed intramedullary tibial nails: a biomechanical study.


We examined the correlation of bone mineral density and bone strength in the cadaver tibia, and looked in vitro at the relative stability of tibial fractures fixed with either reamed or unreamed tibial nails. Bone-mineral density correlated well with bone strength (r = 0.946), but paired tibias did not correlate closely. The unreamed nail-bone construct was… (More)
