Intramedullary Fixation of Forearm Fractures.

Summary of "Intramedullary Fixation of Forearm Fractures."

Plate fixation remains the primary surgical treatment option for most adult forearm fractures. However, intramedullary nailing can be successful and might be preferable in cases of massive soft-tissue injury and burns, certain segmental fractures, pathologic fractures, and skeletally immature adolescent patients. Furthermore, the risk for refracture after plate removal is decreased with fixation by intramedullary nailing. The history, indications, surgical technique, and results of intramedullary fixation of forearm fractures are described in this article.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Fractures of the larger bone of the forearm.

The use of nails that are inserted into bone cavities in order to keep fractured bones together.

Benign and malignant neoplasms which occur within the substance of the spinal cord (intramedullary neoplasms) or in the space between the dura and spinal cord (intradural extramedullary neoplasms). The majority of intramedullary spinal tumors are primary CNS neoplasms including ASTROCYTOMA; EPENDYMOMA; and LIPOMA. Intramedullary neoplasms are often associated with SYRINGOMYELIA. The most frequent histologic types of intradural-extramedullary tumors are MENINGIOMA and NEUROFIBROMA.
