Staying out of trouble performing Intramedullary nailing of forearm fractures

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Pediatric diaphyseal forearm fractures occur commonly and often require reduction with stabilization. Intramedullary flexible nails provide an effective method for stabilizing and maintaining reduction of these fractures. There are a few specific technical pearls that can be implemented to improve efficiency of nail placement and minimize postoperative complications, such as painful hardware and compartment syndrome.
