Example text

Thus, it is limited only to certain long bone fractures. Its application to intra-articular and periarticular fractures is very limited. Early return of full function following fracture can be achieved only by sufficiently stable internal fixation which will abolish fracture pain and which will allow early resumption of motion with partial loading without the risk of failure of the fixation and resultant malunion or nonunion. With nonfunctional methods full return of function is rarely achieved, and then only after a prolonged rehabilitation period.

The resorption around the pins of the external fixator employed to stabilize the cortical fragments was thought to be due to pressure necrosis of the cortex. Cancellous surfaces under compression united rapidly, and it was thought initially that compression provided an osteogenic stimulus to bone. The failure of the cortex to unite led to general acceptance of the thesis that cancellous and cortical bone behaved differently and that they probably united by different mechanisms. Since then it has been demonstrated that, under conditions of absolute stability, both cancellous and cortical fragments heal by what has been referred to as primary direct or vascular bone union (primary bone healing).

Schatzker The limitations imposed on the conventional nail by the location of a fracture and its pattern have given rise to the development of the interlocking nail (Kempf et al. 1985). The first-generation interlocked nails greatly extended the indications for intramedullary nailing to fractures of the proximal and distal part of the diaphyseal segment of the femur and tibia. Certain fractures of the proximal femur, such as subtrochanteric fractures involving the lesser trochanter or associated with intertrochanteric fractures, could not be stabilized with the firstgeneration nails.
