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.

f5-cm8703p147: ESIN in radial head fractures

Mentions: If there is an angulation of 80° or greater, the nail will leave the radial metaphysis above the radial head, without engaging it. In this case, an orthopedic reduction procedure, even partial, is required, which will allow the elastic nail to engage the radial head (Figure 5).
