Elastic Stable Intramedullary Nailing for Fractures in Children - Specific Applications.

Cosma D, Vasilescu DE - Clujul Med (2014)

Bottom Line: Elastic stable intramedullary nailing (ESIN) is a new minimally invasive technique for the treatment of pediatric fractures.It approximates the physiological healing process of bone, without opening the fracture site.Also, the operative stress is minimal because of the minimally invasive nature of the procedure, and the volume of implants is small, offering a very good stability without plaster cast immobilization.

f1-cm8703p147: Choice of entry points and shaping of the nails with the antegrade technique

Mentions: antegrade approach with C- and S-shaped nails. The entry point is at subtrochanteric level and both nails are inserted so that their distal tips are divergent in the two femoral condyles (Figure 1);
