The purpose of this study is to determine if there is a difference in the rate of healing of a tibia fracture treated with an intramedullary nail based on whether or not the bone was reamed prior to nail insertion.
Patients with tibia fractures that are amenable to being treated with both a reamed and an unreamed nail will be randomized via telephone to one of the two groups. These patients then will be followed for a year with clinical, as well as subjective, outcome follow-up questionnaires. Time to healing, as well as repeat interventions and adverse events, will be tracked. The rationale for doing a large sample size multi-center trial is the hope that a clear answer to whether or not one of these two methods is significantly better than the other will become apparent and thus aid surgeons in making a more informed operative treatment choice.

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...
Anterior knee pain (AKP) is a common complication following intramedullary (IM) nailing of a tibial shaft fracture. The purpose of this prospective study was to determine if there is an as...
The primary objective of this study is to evaluate the long-term outcome after inserting an intramedullary nail in patients with a tibial shaft fracture using an injury-specific questionna...
The purpose of this study is to collect outcomes data in patients implanted with the Ellipse IM HTO Nail System.
In many cases, the existing locking bolts and screws in intramedullary nails do not provide sufficient stability. Due to the play between screw and nail, the reduction can be lost and the ...
This study aims to investigate the effects of different amounts of compression used in intramedullary nailing on the stress values of the fracture surface and time of the union process in tibia diaphy...
Premature full weight bearing after femur lengthening can lead to implant failure, telescopic nail shortening, and regenerate fracture. This study aimed at performing a retrospective analysis of the c...
To investigate the effect of different fixation strategies of the intramedullary interlocking nail (IIN) on the mechanical behavior of a polymeric implant applied for femoral fracture fixation in calv...
To determine factors associated with nonunion of adult tibial fractures.
The use of nails that are inserted into bone cavities in order to keep fractured bones together.
Excessive lateral nail growth into the nail fold. Because the lateral margin of the nail acts as a foreign body, inflammation and granulation may result. It is caused by improperly fitting shoes and by improper trimming of the nail.
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.
Implantable fracture fixation devices attached to bone fragments with screws to bridge the fracture gap and shield the fracture site from stress as bone heals. (UMDNS, 1999)
Separation of nail plate from the underlying nail bed. It can be a sign of skin disease, infection (such as ONYCHOMYCOSIS) or tissue injury.
Osteoporosis is a disease in which the bones become extremely porous, are subject to fracture, and heal slowly, occurring especially in women following menopause and often leading to curvature of the spine from vertebral collapse. Follow and track&n...
