  11. 11. Introduction  Fracture stabilized by one of two systems  Compression  Splinting  Intramedullary fixation - internal splinting  Splintage -micro motion between bone & implant  Relative stability without interfragmentary compression.  Entry point - distant from fracture site – hematoma retained.  Closed reduction and fixation (biological) bahaa Ali Kornah-Al-Azhar Un. Cairo -EGYPT
  12. 12. Intramedullary Nails • • • • • • Relative stability Intramedullary splint Less likely to break with repetitive loading than plate More likely to be load sharing . Secondary bone healing Diaphyseal and some metaphyseal fractures bahaa Ali Kornah-Al-Azhar Un. Cairo -EGYPT

  49. 49. III. Nail diameter Nail diameter affects bending rigidity ❑solid circular nail,  Bending rigidity  third power of nail diameter (D3)  Torsional rigidity  fourth power of diameter (D4) Large diameter with same cross- section are both stiffer and stronger than smaller ones. bahaa Ali Kornah-Al-Azhar Un. Cairo -EGYPT
  50. 50. III. Nail diameter • assessing medullary canal diameter in AP and LV both site • pre-operative radiograph by using the templates provided. • The canal must be reamed to at least 1 mm to accept nail less than it bahaa Ali Kornah-Al-Azhar Un. Cairo -EGYPT
  51. 51. IV. Nail curves  Long bones have curved medullary cavities  Nails contoured to accommodate curves of bone  Straight, curved or helical  Average radius of curvature of femur - 120(±36) cm.  Complete congruency minimizes normal forces and hence little frictional component to nail’s fixation.  Femoral nail designs have considerably less curve, with radius ranging from 150 to 300 cm  Im nails - straighter (larger radius) than femoral canal bahaa Ali Kornah-Al-Azhar Un. Cairo -EGYPT
  52. 52. Nail curves  Angle of herzog :  11o bend in AP direction at junction of upper 1/3rd and lower 2/3rd of tibia nail  Mismatch in radius of curvature –  Distal anterior cortical perforation  more reaming required during insertion bahaa Ali Kornah-Al-Azhar Un. Cairo -EGYPT

  54. 54. Posterior - loss of proximal fixation Ideal - posterior portion of piriformis fossa Anterior - generates huge forces, can lead to bursting of proximal bahaa Ali Kornah-Al-Azhar Un. Cairo -EGYPT
  55. 55. V. Nail length A-Total nail length - Anatomical length tip of the greater trochanter to the intercondylar notch. length between proximal and distal point of firm fixation to bone B-working length - Working length Affected by various factors ➢ Type of force (Bending ,Torsion ) ➢ Type of fracture ➢ Interlocking and dynamization ➢ Reaming ➢ Weight bearing bahaa Ali Kornah-Al-Azhar Un. Cairo -EGYPT
  56. 56. V. Nail length  Shorter working length stronger fixation  Transverse fracture has a shorter working length than comminuted fracture  Torsional stiffness 1/ to l  Bending stiffness 1/ to l2  Surgeon’s techniques to modify “ l ”  Medullary reaming  Interlocking bahaa Ali Kornah-Al-Azhar Un. Cairo -EGYPT
  57. 57. VI- Extreme ends  K-nail  Slot/eye in ends for extraction  One end tapered to facilitate insertion . ❑ Holes for interlocking screws  Some nails have slots near distal end for placement of anti rotation screw  Anterior slot- Improved flexibility  Posterior slot - Increased bending strength  Non-slotted - Increased torsional stiffness and strength in smaller sizes bahaa Ali Kornah-Al-Azhar Un. Cairo -EGYPT
  58. 58. Interlocking of nail  Recommended for most cases of IM nailing.  Principle :  Resistance to axial and torsional forces depends on screw – bone interface  Length of bone maintained even in bone defect.  Number of interlocks :  Fracture location  Amount of fracture comminution  Fit of nail within canal.  Placing screws in multiple planes - reduction of minor movement bahaa Ali Kornah-Al-Azhar Un. Cairo -EGYPT
  59. 59. Interlocking screw  Location of distal locking screws affects biomechanics of fracture  Distal locking screws  Closer to fracture site - less cortical contact -increased stress on locking screws  Distal from fracture site -fracture becomes more rotationally stable  Interlocking screws positioned at least 2 cm from fracture provides sufficient stability bahaa Ali Kornah-Al-Azhar Un. Cairo -EGYPT
  60. 60. Poller /blocking screws  Corrects mal-alignment.  Centers IM nail.  Planned and inserted before IM nail insertion.  Saggital or coronal plane. bahaa Ali Kornah-Al-Azhar Un. Cairo -EGYPT
  61. 61. Poller screw • When malalignment develops during nail insertion, placement of blocking (Poller screws) screw, and nail reinsertion improves alignment. • Most reliable in proximal and distal shaft fractures of tibia. • A posteriorly placed screw prevents anterior angulation and laterally placed screw prevents valgus angulation.
  62. 62. Static locking  Screws placed proximal and distal to fracture site  Restrict translation and rotation at fracture site.  Acts as a “bridging fixation”  Indications :  Communited  Spiral  Pathological fractures  Fractures with bone loss  Atropic non union bahaa Ali Kornah-Al-Azhar Un. Cairo -EGYPT
  63. 63. Dynamic locking ❑ Screws inserted only at one end (short fragment) ❑ Unlocked end stabilized by snug fit inside medullary cavity (long fragment) ❑ Prerequisite: at least 50% cortical circumferential contact ❑ Indications ❑ Fractures with good bone contact ❑ Non unions ❑ With axial loading , working length in bending and torsion is reduced - improving nail-bone contact bahaa Ali Kornah-Al-Azhar Un. Cairo -EGYPT
  64. 64. Dynamisation ❑ “Weaken stability” ❑ Never done in progressive normal healing ❑ Indications ❑ Established nonnunion ❑ Pseudoarthrosis ❑ Caution: premature dynamization adds to shortening, instability and non-union. bahaa Ali Kornah-Al-Azhar Un. Cairo -EGYPT
  65. 65. Dynamisation  Primary Dynamisation  Dynamic locking of axially and rotationally stable fractures at time of initial fracture fixation  Secondary Dynamisation  Removing interlocking screw from longer fragment / moving proximal interlocking screw from static to dynamic slot in nail  Done in long bone delayed union and nonunion bahaa Ali Kornah-Al-Azhar Un. Cairo -EGYPT
  66. 66. Reamed Versus Unreamed  Endosteal thermo-necrosis & endosteal cortical blood supply disruption ➢ Minimized by using sharp reamers with deep cutting flutes. ➢ Reaming - slow and smooth.  Endosteal blood supply regenerates rapidly - high healing rates in reamed nails.  No difference in infection rates  No overall difference in time to union bahaa Ali Kornah-Al-Azhar Un. Cairo -EGYPT
  67. 67. Reamed Versus Unreamed ❑ Reamed nail : ❑ High chance of embolization of bone marrow fat to lungs but this phenomenon is limited & transient ❑ Fat extravasation greatest during insertion of nail in medullary cavity ❑ Not dependent upon increased intra medullary pressure  Reamed nailing generally report no statistical difference in pulmonary complications as compared to unreamed nailing bahaa Ali Kornah-Al-Azhar Un. Cairo -EGYPT
  68. 68. Open intramedullary nailing (OIN) Primary indication :  Failure to do closed nailing  Nonunions  Fractures requiring intramedullary existing fixation in internal fixation device. bahaa Ali Kornah-Al-Azhar Un. Cairo -EGYPT
  69. 69.  Advantages (OIN) :  Less expensive equipment required than for closed nailing.  No special fracture table / preliminary traction  Absolute anatomical reduction  Direct observation of bone - undisplaced / undetected comminution  Improved rotational alignment and stability.  Prevents torquing and twisting in segmental fractures  In nonunions, opening of medullary canals of sclerotic bone is easier. bahaa Ali Kornah-Al-Azhar Un. Cairo -EGYPT
  70. 70. DISADVANTAGES (OIN) : ❑Skin scars ❑Fracture hematoma evacuated. ❑ Bone shavings created by reaming medullary canal often are lost. ❑Infection rate increased. ❑ Rate of union decreased. ❑ If a locking nail is used, locking is difficult without image intensification bahaa Ali Kornah-Al-Azhar Un. Cairo -EGYPT
  71. 71. Nailing in open fractures  If initial debridement adequate and timely , definitive stabilization with reamed intramedullary nailing  with severe soft tissue injuries that require a second debridement, temporary external fixation reasonable  increased risk of infection after use of external fixation pins longer than 2 weeks followed by reamed intramedullary nailing.  Rapid initial management approach allows delayed conversion to a medullary implant at 5 to 10 days. bahaa Ali Kornah-Al-Azhar Un. Cairo -EGYPT
  72. 72. Nailing in openfractures ❖ Fractures with delay in initial debridement of more than 8 hours - staged nailing. ❖ Acceptable complication rate (11 % infection rate in type iii open fractures) ❖ No relationship between infection rate, non union with timing of nailing or associated soft tissue injury bahaa Ali Kornah-Al-Azhar Un. Cairo -EGYPT
  73. 73. Aseptic non unions  Without bone defects-primary im nailing or exchange Nailing if well aligned  With bone defects -IM nailing with bone grafting  corticocancellous graft material - harvested with ria(little donor morbidity) bahaa Ali Kornah-Al-Azhar Un. Cairo -EGYPT
  74. 74. Exchange nailing ➢ Biological effects :  Reaming of medullary canal – promotes union ➢ Mechanical effects :  Larger-diameter intramedullary nail – improved stability ❖ Exchage nail – at least 1mm larger than previous nail ❖ Canal reaming until osseous tissue observed in reaming flutes Removal of current intramedullary nail Reaming of medullary canal Placement of an larger intramedullary nail bahaa Ali Kornah-Al-Azhar Un. Cairo -EGYPT
  75. 75. Septic non union  Main aim - eradicating infection  Osseous stability important in management of infected nonunion  Stabilization with antibiotic impregnated cement coated nail after serial debridement.  Cement nail elute high concentration of antibiotic in local sites for up to 36 weeks. bahaa Ali Kornah-Al-Azhar Un. Cairo -EGYPT
  76. 76. Antibiotic impregnated cement nail bahaa Ali Kornah-Al-Azhar Un. Cairo -EGYPT
  77. 77. 40gms of bone cement is taken and mixed with 2 to 4 gms of powder when dough is semi solid. It is wrapped around K nail of size 6 to 7 mm and rolled between two palms.The rod is then passed through the holes of the nail major usually 8 to 9mm diameter to maintain uniformity of diameter.
  78. 78. In polytrauma , early femoral stabilization decreases incidence of severe fat embolism and pulmonary complications (ARDS). Nailing with reaming will not increase pulmonary complications Early intramedullary nailing may be deleterious and is associated with elevation of certain proinflammatory markers - (il)-6. Early external fixation of long bone fractures followed by delayed intramedullary nailing – high risk patients. Nailing in damage control orthopaedics (DCO) / early total care (ETC) bahaa Ali Kornah-Al-Azhar Un. Cairo -EGYPT
  79. 79. ❑ 50% (↓)in mortality patients who underwent femoral shaft fracture stabilization beyond 12 hours This timing was hypothesized to allow for adequate resuscitation  Exact and optimal timing of femoral shaft fracture nailing remains unclear in polytrauma(esp. Chest injuries) Nailing in damage control orthopaedics (DCO)/early total care (ETC) bahaa Ali Kornah-Al-Azhar Un. Cairo -EGYPT
  80. 80. Removal  Timing controversial  Indications :  Patient request(after union)  Pain, swelling secondary to backing out of implant.  Infected nailing  Full weight bearing immediately after removal  Femoral nail removed after 24-36 months ,  Tibial nail 18-24 months bahaa Ali Kornah-Al-Azhar Un. Cairo -EGYPT
  81. 81. Failure IMN ❑ When fracture healing is delayed or nonunion occurs.  IM nails usually fail in predictable patterns.  Unlocked nails ◼ fail at fracture site or through a screw hole or slot.  Locked nails ◼ screw breakage or fracturing of nail at locking hole sites(proximal hole of distal interlocks ) bahaa Ali Kornah-Al-Azhar Un. Cairo -EGYPT
  82. 82. Recent advances  Biodegradable polymers  Nickel-titanium shape-modifiable alloys  can improve stability as they change shape after insertion and recover curvature as they warm.  IM nails coated with bmp bahaa Ali Kornah-Al-Azhar Un. Cairo -EGYPT
  83. 83. Conclusion ➢ IMN -Implant of choice in diaphyseal fractures ➢ Multiple factors determine final construct stiffness, should be understood and considered when choosing IM nail ➢ Ideal intramedullary nail is yet to be invented bahaa Ali Kornah-Al-Azhar Un. Cairo -EGYPT
