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.

We compared the union and functional results of intramedullary nailing and open reduction internal fixation treatment applied to adults with a forearm diaphysis fracture (fracture of the radius and/or...
Clavicle fractures are among the most common fractures occurring in the general population, and the vast majority are localized in the midshaft portion of the bone. Management of midshaft clavicle fra...
Proximal humerus fractures (PHFs) are common injuries seen mostly in elderly patients. Although nonoperative management is acceptable for most patients, surgical fixation is often advocated for younge...
Elastic stable intramedullary nailing (ESIN) has been established as state of the art treatment for forearm fractures in children, if operative stabilization is required. Their use has been expanded t...
More and more studies conduct to compare intramedullary fixation (IMF) with arthroplasty in treating intertrochanteric hip fractures, but it remains controversy. The aim of this meta-analysis was to f...
The purpose of the study is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of the composite Nail - the Quantum interlocking intramedullary nailing system in the reduction of humeral fractures.
This post-market clinical study is being done to evaluate the use of the NovaLign™ Intramedullary Fixation System in the treatment of humeral fractures.
Randomized controlled trial comparing a technique for buried intramedullary k-wire fixation to plate and screw fixation for unstable extra-articular metacarpal fractures.
Diaphyseal femoral and tibial fractures are in the spotlight within the traumatology-orthopedics scenario. Intramedullary nailing (IMN) remains the method of choice for treating these frac...
In England each year over 65,000 people fracture their hip. Most of these patients are elderly females with the fracture occurring after a simple trip or stumble. Approximately half of the...

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.
Fractures of the short, constricted portion of the thigh bone between the femur head and the trochanters. It excludes intertrochanteric fractures which are HIP FRACTURES.
Fractures of the FEMUR HEAD; the FEMUR NECK; (FEMORAL NECK FRACTURES); the trochanters; or the inter- or subtrochanteric region. Excludes fractures of the acetabulum and fractures of the femoral shaft below the subtrochanteric region (FEMORAL FRACTURES).
