The radiographic union scale in tibial (RUST) fractures: Reliability of the outcome measure at an independent centre.

Abstract

OBJECTIVES The radiographic union score for tibial (RUST) fractures was developed by Whelan et al to assess the healing of tibial fractures following intramedullary nailing. In the current study, the repeatability and reliability of the RUST score was evaluated in an independent centre (a) using the original description, (b) after further interpretation of… (More)
