Once healing of the femoral intertn was confirmed by X-ray, full weight-bearing ambulation was required. Why do I ream with a 16mm reamer and the nail size is larger?

Functional recovery after fracture of the hip. This does, however, negate the press-fit effect created by the nail’s trapezoidal shape.

Union time and complications are also important intertah indicators to evaluate the functional recovery.

How is INTERTAN different?

This is representative of approximately six months implantation time at which fracture union should have occurred. All implant position changes were noted.

The problem lies in interan fact that even implants that are keyed to prevent rotation can still experience rotation of the fragments about the axis of the lag screw.

The clothespin distal tip of the INTERTAN short nail reduces the overall cross-sectional stiffness of the implant to minimise the risk of iatrogenic fracture during insertion, to ease the actual process of nail insertion and to offer enhanced rotational stability within the proximal femoral canal. Excessive varus forces placed on the smaller screw at the lateral cortex cause it to toggle and either back out or migrate through the femoral head into the acetabulum.

Conventional intramedullary nails including gamma 3 locking nail and proximal femoral nail antirotation PFNA were designed for unstable intertrochanteric fractures 5. Our designing surgeons feel that rotational instability is a major contributing factor to that failure rate and propose the INTERTAN nail as the solution to this dilemma.

Patients with intertrochanteric fractures Intervention: J Bone Joint Surg Am. The included studies were divided into two subgroups to minimize the heterogeneity. Typically, the superior screw is of smaller diameter than the inferior and bears a disproportionate amount of load during weight bearing. A variety of factors including racial differences, surgery procedures, age differences, study design, anaesthesia factors and different time of follow-up may cause the heterogeneity.

In addition, the nail’s trapezoidal profile also provides enhanced anatomical fit and added rotational stability in the proximal femoral metaphysis similar to that offered by conventional hip stems. During the second operation, bone grafting was applied for these patients, and bone union was observed 5 to 7 months postoperatively.
