The systemic inflammatory response following femoral canal reaming using the reamer-irrigator-aspirator (RIA) device.

Abstract

We evaluated the peripheral release of inflammatory mediators after femoral fracture and subsequent intramedullary reaming using the RIA reamers. IL-6 was elevated after trauma, and reaming with RIA induced a measurable second hit response. However, despite a higher ISS, the levels of IL-6 in the RIA group were similar to the levels measured in a group of… (More)
