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.

f6-cm8703p147: Reduction and elastic nailing in forearm bone fractures

Mentions: Fixation usually starts with the bone that is easier to reduce. For the radius, the entry point is found in the distal metaphysis, above the distal growth cartilage, between the tendons of the long and short extensors of the thumb. The cortical bone is exposed through a small incision and a hole is drilled, which is enlarged by circular movements. The nail is inserted into the medullary canal up to the fracture site. Fracture reduction is performed and the nail is advanced into the proximal fragment under fluoroscopic control (Figure 6).
