Closed intramedullary osteosynthesis in treatment of shaft forearm bone fractures

Челноков А.Н., Лазарев А.Ю.

Abstract


The technique of closed intramedullary osteosynthesis combined with transosseous osteosynthesis has been used in treatment of 144 patients with shaft factures of forearm bones. A distraction device is applied for reposition at the first stage; closed intramedullary osteosynthesis is performed at the second stage. Good and excellent results were obtained in 96% of cases when evaluation of clinical signs was made and that by the DASH score system.
